3 years ago we stayed at The Whitefish Lake Lodge and it was my ideal lodging. I'd always wanted to stay on a lake with a sunset view. Nice restaurant though we did a lot of cooking in the condo-style lodging. We also happened to stop at The Izaak Walton Inn as someone had to use a restroom. We then got a tour and were so surprised at such a unique situation for lodging. We were in the area in late-September and took the ranger led tour , last of the season, in the Red bus as we were too nervous to hike as we had heard about numerous bear attacks in the state. We did not go to the St Mary's entrance as we were in a Tesla had worried about charging.

How many nights did you spend at Glacier National Park?

We will spend 5 nights at Whitefish Lodge because that is where the wedding will take place, and the bride and groom have blocked rooms there. I saw the bride's parents on Thanksgiving, and they informed us there are 3 nights of pre-wedding and post-wedding events. Then I am thinking of spending 5 nights in the park, perhaps 3 nights around Many Glacier or St. Mary's, and then end with 2 nights at West Glacier so we can be close to Kalispell for our flight home.

When we rented a car at the Kalispell airport after being picked up from Meadow Lake, we were allowed to drop the car at the Whitefish station. We took the Empire Builder east to Chicago. We spent 2 days in Chicago before heading back west on the California Zephyr. We used al of the days on our 30 day Railpasses.
Enjoy your trip and wedding.

tomfuller, thank you for your helpful posts. I will check out Meadow Lake Lodge. My relative also recommended Tamarack Lodge. Do you know anything about it? After the wedding, I am considering 3 nights in or near St. Mary's. Right now St. Mary Village has some openings. And then we want to spend 2 nights in or near West Glacier. This will be our last stop before we fly home from Kalispell.
