Get around[edit]







  • 1 Izaak Walton Inn, 290 Izaak Walton Inn Rd, +1 406 888-5700. Originally built as accommodation for railway personnel on the adjacent Great Northern Railway. Still retaining the railroad ambiance, guests may choose from two floors of warm, inviting rooms, from $100 per night, or choose to lodge in a converted railroad caboose. An exceptional dining room is available, with many local specialties prepared to order. The Bison Hash & Eggs at breakfast is a favorite. Rental vehicles are also available from the desk. The Izaak Walton has its own Amtrak stop, served by the Chicago-Seattle-Portland Empire Builder daily.
