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 is 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 and 2022 seasons hoping for some kind of correction. As we head into our 2023 season, we may adjust pricing as needed. We really do not want to increase prices and I can assure you we will only do so when necessary.
Our cabins date back to the 1932 Winter Olympics. After the1932 Olympics ended, most were sold for transport out of the country, but 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. Our cabins are still 90+ 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. 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.
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!
Elevate your spirits and your taste buds! Enjoy fishing the outdoors until you get hungry for some award winning BBQ and homemade fixings.
Stay in our home away from home rustic cabins. Bring the family for an amazing adventure, or the significant other for a romantic getaway.
