Sperry Chalet

West side of Gunsite Mountain, Glacier National Park, Montana, USA

This elegant backcountry lodge, built in 1913 by the Great Northern Railway, is accessible only by a steep, 6.7-mile trail with a 3,300-foot vertical rise; either hike in or arrive on horseback. Guest rooms have no electricity, heat, or running water, but who cares when the view includes Glacier's Gunsite Mountain, Mount Edwards, Lake McDonald, and mountain goats in wildflowers? Informal meals, such as turkey with the trimmings, are simple yet filling and included in the rates. The reservations office is closed in September and October.
