Read Our Reviews:
From Frommers: “A stone’s throw from U.S. 2, this registered historic site is an intimate, old-fashioned hotel. Built in 1939 — five years after the completion of the dam — the establishment harks back to a slower way of life in Montana. There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms, a situation that tends to usher people out into the bar in the lobby for (gasp!) conversation. There is a good restaurant that serves three meals a day and summertime dinner buffets that cater to visitors holding tickets to a play at the Fort Peck Theatre. The rooms are small but serviceable, with high ceilings and spare furnishings reminiscent of the 1930s and 1940s.”
From Fodors: “Just about every piece of furniture in this lodge-like wooden building dates from the hotel’s construction during the Great Depression. Inside, the thick beams, sturdy rafters, and Western style transport you back to the 1930s. Accommodations are small and modest, and most bathrooms have showers, but some have massive claw-foot bathtubs. The adjoining rustic dining room serves three square meals a day for an additional charge. The hotel, listed on the National Historic Registry, is popular with hunters in the fall and with arts patrons in the summer. Packages that include lodging, meals, and theater tickets are available.”
