The best thing about this place is the location, at the trailhead for one of the most spectacular hikes in the Sierras. This is a series of small, older cabins plus an office that sells some candy, drinks, and makes some basic hot food to...More

Alison , Thank you for your positives! We would love to provide you with a quick update based on the feedback you provided us through this review. As the NEW OWNERS of Glacier Lodge, we are working hard to get the cabins upgraded. You'll be...More

These cabins are old and charming. They were all one bedroom cabins, but the prior living rooms have all been outfitted with a couch bed and a single bed, cramming many more people in. I didn't see that as a problem but the bathrooms are...More

Hi Coastman3. Yes! Our bathrooms are...interesting! As the new owners, we have been trying to figure out how to enlarge the bathrooms in some of our smaller cabins. The cabins were built around 1932 and over the years have had various rooms added and repairs...More

Had a great stay in a cabin at the Glacier Lodge in July 2018. We spent two days acclimatizing before a backpacking trip, and we had a great time. The cabin was comfortable, with a hot shower, screened windows, and stocked kitchen. Step outside and...More

Reviewed 19 July 2018

We expected rustic, but it's too charitable to describe Cabin 18 as merely rustic. It's more like some poor sharecropper's shack, for which we spent over $500 for a two-night stay for 4 adults! Beds were lumpy and uncomfortable, there weren't enough towels for everyone,...More

Joe, We are sorry that your stay with us did not exceed expectations. It’s never fun to go on a vacation and be disappointed. As the new owners, we are working hard to get our cabins( built in 1932) remodeled a couple at a time....More

We offer cabins in all shapes and sizes to fit the needs of any family. We also have a campground for the people who enjoy camping in their tent or RV. Inside the store we offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and More your taste buds are sure to dance with delight any time of the day. Enjoy a day of relaxing down by our stocked trout pond, which is the perfect spot for the little anglers in the family to experience the thrill of reeling in their own fish. If cooking your catch isn't your cup of tea, bring it by our store to be cooked for a perfect trout dinner Less
