Granite Park Chalet

Built between 1914 and 1915 by the Great Northern Railway inside Montana’s Glacier National Park, the Granite Park Chalet provides a pleasingly simple resting spot for guests who can arrive from several hiking trails. The only drawback: there are limited water facilities and guests are expected to prepare their own meals — so pack lightly!
