COVID-19 Procedures at Glacier Guides Lodge and Guest House

Your comfort and peace of mind when you are our guests have always been our #1 priorities as your Glacier National Park lodging hosts. During the COVID-19 pandemic, that hasn’t changed, but we have updated a few of our procedures.
  • At check in, our Lodge Manager will greet you upon arrival, and direct you to your room. The sanitized key will be in the lock. There is nothing to sign or fill out at check in.
  • There is, of course, increased cleaning of public areas, surfaces, and frequently touched areas in your room. This includes all door handles and locks, light switches, remote control, faucet, alarm clock, tops of the furniture, and other items you may use such as the ice bucket, hairdryer, and hangers.
  • There are limited housekeeping services for guests staying longer than a single night, unless otherwise requested. For your safety and ours, we will not enter your room to change linens or perform other daily housekeeping services unless asked to do so. Each day, we will happily pick up anything you might wish to discard from outside of your room, and leave for you anything you might need. Of course, for those guests who are staying with us a long period of time, we will work together to find a cleaning routine that best suits you.
  • We will continue to adjust our food and beverage service in accordance with current food safety recommendations.
  • Coffee makers and coffee are available in each room. Breakfast will be served from 7am-10am. Cold grab and go options may include: yogurt, granola, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, regular milk, and almond milk. Hot grab and go options may include: breakfast burritos and sandwiches, hashbrown casserole, and frittatas. There is typically one hot option daily. All options are prepackaged. Menu options will be posted each day.
  • In between guest stays, we will spend extra time making certain that each room is in top notch condition. We launder all linens, blankets, towels, and shower curtains using CDC approved settings and cleansers.
  • Lodge employees will wear masks when cleaning rooms and when social distance is not an option. Masks are available to guests upon request.
If you have specific questions about our enhanced sanitation procedures in light of COVID-19, we encourage you to reach out to us. We would love to answer your questions. We look forward to welcoming you to our Glacier National Park lodging!

COVID-19 Procedures at Glacier National Park Chalets

This update come directly to us from the operators of Granite Park Chalet and Sperry Chalet

“As we learn more from county and state health agencies and stay in communication with the National Park Service we are growing cautiously optimistic that the chalets will be able to open in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our guests should be advised that this will not be a typical season of chalet comforts in the wild. We will be on high alert for any illness or cation. We are expecting a lot of changes in how the chalets operate. For example:
  • Social distancing must be maintained with all other parties and staff. We will treat your party as a family unit that can interact and share rooms with each other. (For Glacier Guides and Montana Raft guests, your family unit is the unit you are traveling to Montana with – you will not share rooms with anyone else on a Glacier Guides tour of the Chalets.)
  • There will be restrictions on building access. To manage expose the chalet structures will only be available to reserved guests and occupancy of common areas will be limited.
  • Attractive nuisances that invite crowding or virus transmission will be removed. The fireplace will be cold and the books and games library will not be available.
If any visitor begins showing signs of illness while at the chalet the entire party will be evicted and must evacuate to the front country for medical attention. The chalets are too far from medical help and too close quarters to take any chances.
If any member of your party shows signs of illness in the days leading up to your reservation we ask that you cancel your trip. Please do a good service for the health of our National Park, our communities, and your fellow travelers by not spreading possible infections.
If you do not have a chalet reservation but are interested in visiting us on a da hike, be advised that the chalet structure cannot shelter you and food service will be limited or unavailable.
We will be fine tuning the details of our Coronavirus plan as summer approaches and we will work to keep our guests informed on what to expect. We are taking unusual and extreme measures because we hold the health of our staff and guests as our highest concern. It is unfortunate that safety measures prevent us from opening our doors to everyone. Thank you for the kind understanding. With this season of sacrifices we will be in a better position to offer the warm embrace of chalet hospitality in the future.
Be safe out there.”
-Kevin Warrington, Glacier National Park Chalets Concessioner

“Teal was so helpful in every way! She provided me with bear spray, and set me up with a rafting trip and bicycle during my stay. The lodge itself was lovely and the WiFi was great, which makes a huge difference when you’re trying to communicate with family/friends outside the wilderness. Would definitely recommend Glacier Guides to anyone traveling through this area in the future! Thanks for a wonderful trip.”

Kristin A., Glacier Guides Lodge

“My wife and I arrived in West Glacier on a Saturday and were greeted very warmly by the lodge manager. We had a great night’s sleep and we were picked up Sunday morning by our backpacking guide, whose name is Tarek. After watching a safety video and the food was distributed, we were off to the backcountry. The backpacking was amazing! Tarek was very knowledgeable about the Park, and was an excellent chef – from the vegetable curry on the first night to the chocolate fondue on the last night. Every meal in the backcountry was delicious. Tarek was like Mary Poppins, he kept pulling a surprising array of delicious treats from his backpack! We also thought our backcountry permit was pretty special. We hiked over Dawson and Pitamakin passes, and over the Triple Divide Pass, and the views were stunning. Glacier Guides did a fantastic job organizing and executing on their promise to deliver a unique backcountry experience. As I told our guide Tarek on the last day, it was a trip well planned, and a plan well executed. When we arrived back at the Lodge on Friday after six days in the backcountry, our room was ready and they were waiting for us. On Saturday we did the half day rafting, which like our other Glacier Guides experiences was very pleasing and a lot of fun. If you are planning a trip to Glacier, plan your activities through Glacier Guides, you will not be disappointed!”

“If you need a base in West Glacier to begin or end your journey, I highly recommend Glacier Guides Lodge. It’s not only conveniently located to the train station and restaurants and the national park, but the staff are warm and welcoming. My husband & I disembarked the train at the West Glacier depot after a 24 hour train journey. When we arrived, it was dark and our train was 3 hours late. Disoriented, tired, and unsure of where we were, I saw a figure emerging from the darkness, calling out our names. Who was this stranger? It was Don from Glacier Guide Lodge. He had stayed up and waited for our train to arrive and walked down the hill to greet us at the train station. He wanted to make sure we found our way OK and make sure we had everything we needed. They had already told us they would leave a key for us and we could make ourselves at home. When we reached our room we were greeted by a hand-written personal note from another staff member who wanted to make sure we contacted them if we needed anything. The lodge itself seems an expression of the love the owners/managers / staff have for the place. It was clean, comfortable, and filled with many touches that gave you a sense that people genuinely care about your stay and want you to have the best experience exploring the area. It was like traveling in a different time – we were genuinely welcomed to the area and greeted with kindness.”
