Amazing Roaring 20s

We couldn't have picked a better venue! Staff and atmosphere was beyond our expectations (mine mostly) We had a roaring 20s themed wedding and with out a doubt best day of our lives spent at the Izaak Walton inn! We had a few hiccups along the way, on site management was awesome at helping our guest as well as us throughout our extended wedding weekend!!! We look forward to our next visit!!!♡

While I occasionally had difficulties receiving responses to email questions, my overall experience was wonderful. The staff of this small train hotel on the southern border of Glacier National Park was outstanding. They were attentive and flexible, especially when it rained during and hailed after the ceremony, and some of the heat lamps struggled to stay lit. They went above and beyond to make sure we were dry, warm, and on schedule. The food, as is usual in their restaurant, was all delicious. It was nice that the venue provided the food and alcohol so I did not have to deal with an outside vendor. Also, the planning process was very flexible and there were many options. I very highly recomend this venue!

The gorgeous venue sits between East and West Glacier and makes visiting the beautiful Glacier National Park so easy. The staff was friendly, flexible, and the food was amazing. It is the best price for the location and the historic Inn is quaint. My biggest complaint was working with Holly, the event coordinator. She didn't respond to emails in a timely manner and didn't even show up the day of our wedding. She made the process the most stressful. However, I do highly recommend the venue because everyone else from the chef and bartender to the rest of the staff were so amazing to work with. The staff took care of moving chairs, serving, and taking down decorations. The food was absolutely amazing. We had prime rib and seabass. You won't get a better deal anywhere else in the gorgeous location.
