​​2022 Season

*important info*

Welcome to the 2022 season. We are excited to see what this year brings us!

We have contactless check in now. If you prefer, you can set up contactless check-in prior to your stay. This means that you can pre-coordinate your check-in to bypass the store check-in. Either message us through the app or email us at to set this up. 

We are finally open for reservations online and have updated our online RoverPass platform to reflect our more flexible booking and cancellation policies. If you book directly thru us (not RoverPass), we still have a firm 30 day cancel policy which means we need to know outside of 30 days prior to your reservation that you are canceling. We understand stuff can get crazy and unexpected sh*t happens within the 30 days that one can never plan for; in these situations we reserve the right to offer a credit instead of a refund. My hope from reiterating this policy is that people will understand that Glacier Lodge is a small motel and often times we are unable to rebook your last minute cancelation. Please please understand that I am not a large hotel with a ton of rooms to offset a last minute cancel. Let's all work together when this happens so we can all find a middle ground solution that works for everyone.

We are still prioritizing fire cancels over new reservations-so if you have a reschedule from a previous season, please........

email us at or

text us at 760-938-2837 

Our "weird stuff is happening" cancel policy is still the same as it has been for over 20 years

THANK YOU to all of our guests past, present, and future for hanging with us, supporting us, and especially for being patient with us while we work towards opening.

Glacier Lodge holds a special place in Darrin's heart, and many guests share this love. Darrin and I did not purchase Glacier Lodge to become wealthy. We purchased Glacier Lodge because Darrin grew up here. Caught his first fish here. My kids caught their first fish here. I didn't relocate my entire OC life to purchase a lodge with RUSTIC 2STAR accommodations and an unaccommodating campground as a last-ditch effort to price gouge people so that we could end up on Forbes wealthiest list. Both Darrin and I still need to work off season ventures. With that being stated...Glacier Lodge was not exempt from the staffing difficulties and increased operating costs that almost all businesses are experiencing...which we "took like a champ" and rode out the 2021 season hoping for some kind of correction. So, you can imagine our dismay and anxiety over heading into a new season with even higher operating costs! We really do not want to increase prices, but we literally have no choice. Listen y'all, our cabins are still 100+ years old rustic cabins with tilting frames and unlevel floors. We still have mice and snakes. We are still on the bazillion years old septic system. So, if you're the type of person that likes to leave reviews of whether you think it's worth it or not based on your opinion, WE ARE NOT FOR YOU! If you stay here because we are seriously the coolest people, have great BBQ, spectacular views, maybe a comfy mattress (which may also be a matter of opinion) and hot water (most of the time) after a long hike-we be your people!   

Our cabins date back to the 1932 Winter Olympics. Most were sold, and a few ended up here at Glacier Lodge. The cabins were initially a dry spot to rest a weary head. But over the years, bathrooms and kitchens have been added, fixed, leveled, and fixed again. While this is a beautiful piece of history that we are proud to be a part of, please understand that our cabins are very rustic, cozy, and not 5 star accommodations. We are a small, family owned business and we do all the housekeeping and repairs ourselves. Please manage your expectations.
