In June 2013, we caught an Amtrac train from Chicago to Seattle for a 2-day / 1-night train ride and a 5-day layover in Glacier Nation Park. We occupied a “sleepette” room on the train that was beyond “compact”…won’t do that again! It was an interesting trip, but very long because Amtrac is famous for being late, and they were 6 hours late getting us to the Park. Train trip from Glacier to Seattle went much smoother.
The lodges we stayed in were beautiful, but pretty basic. If you are a “5-star” traveler, you might want to rethink staying in these lovely old lodges.
