AAA Inspector Notes
This is one of the original hotels built by railroad magnate J.J. Hill to provide lodging for turn-of-the-century visitors from the East wishing to explore the park. It still serves that purpose. Train service makes scheduled stops here. Accommodations include converted cabooses, locomotives and cabins. This is a rustic experience for the hiker, fly-fisherman or casual visitor. Outdoor dining is offered. Did not meet all AAA rating requirements for viewports/peepholes in some guest rooms at time of last evaluation on 04/20/2017. Facilities, services, and décor characterize a mid-scale property.

Pros: Some historical feeling, staff friendly.
Cons: Room extremely small, basically you get in your room, you will be on your bed; you get off your bed, you will be outside your room, literally.The onsite restaurant charges a decent price for the meal, but the taste doesn't match. Isolated, not much todo

Pros: The charm, the breakfast, the location
Cons: Some might be bothered by the trains right under theEast side rooms, but it's part of the character. Just bring earplugs or wave at the trains!

Pros: remote, historic, pretty, very good restaurant Note that there is no tvs and other modern things in the room (AC, coffeemakers, etc) and cell service in the area. It is historic and they try to make it look and feel like you are in the past
Cons:
