Belton Chalet & Lodge


  • Hotel/motel
Located at the edge of Glacier National Park, less than one mile from the main western entrance, Belton Chalet and Lodge was the original Great Northern Chalet. Built in 1910, the same year the park was created, Belton served as the primary stop for Park visitors coming by rail. Amtrak still stops here twice daily.

Now, after nearly three years of extensive restoration, this historic registry property is once again the grand chalet of yesteryear, welcoming you to Glacier Country. Sit back on the deck and enjoy the breathtaking views of Apgar Lookout, hike miles of trails, golf with views of Glacier, fish, float the rapids, bird watch or ride all day on horseback. In the winter, cross-country ski on mile after mile of nearby groomed and natural trails. Then relax by the roaring fire in the beautiful chalet lobby, or eat dinner in the Belton Grill Dining room, featuring Montana buffalo meatloaf and Elk stroganoff specials.

Summer is our peak season with nightly accommodations in our Lodge and cottages. The Tap room opens at 3pm daily, and dinner is served beginning at 5pm in the Grill Dining room from late May thru early October. Our cozy cottages are available for nightly rental year round, sleeping up to six people in three bedrooms, with one bathroom and living room with fireplace. The Tap room and Grill Dining room open for winter business on weekends from early December through March. Please check out our website for specific season dates and service times.

Whether it's a relaxing romantic getaway or a weekend workout adventure, be our guest at the Belton Chalet and you'll feel like you are "still back there!"
