Glacier Park Collection

Due to nearby fire activity of the Howe Ridge Fire, poor air quality and predicted weather, we have decided to close Motel Lake McDonald for the remainder of the season. Although it is possible the evacuation order will be lifted prior to the end of our planned operating season, we’ve decided the closure is in the best interest of our guests’ experience.

We are contacting all upcoming reservations to relocate guests to our other properties—all other Pursuit businesses in and around Glacier National Park remain open. The East Side of Glacier National Park, including the Going-to-the-Sun Road from St. Mary to Logan Pass, remains open and unaffected by wildfire.

Quiet comfort on the shores of Lake McDonald in the heart of Glacier National Park

The guest rooms are rustic and comfortable, featuring modest amenities and a unique lodging experience inside the park. 

Please Note: At this time, we are only accepting online bookings for the 2019 season. If  you have questions about a 2018 reservation please contact us at 1-844-868-7474.
