Lake McDonald Lodge

Glacier National Park, USA

Historic Lake McDonald Lodge, built in 1913, is located right inside Glacier National Park, nestled on the shores of the largest lake in the park and just 10 miles from the west entrance. There are 82 guest rooms in the three-story main lodge, whose grand lobby extends to the third floor, replete with a massive fireplace and flagstone floor. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987. Guest rooms are rustic, yet comfortable, with modest amenities. Televisions, air conditioning, and elevators are not available, and the WiFi signal is spotty, but the lodge has a truly spectacular lakeside location.
