Thank you for your chalet enthusiasm
We had a great week last week helping so many people with your summer plans and chalet reservations. It was a good start to our year.
This was a record setting year for the volume of reservation requests received. We appreciate the eagerness and attention, the disappointing part is we could only grant reservations to one out of every four requests sent in. With demand for these tiny hotels growing every year we are saddened that we must turn down more and more wonderful people every year.
If you would like to keep trying for a reservation this year, we do expect a handful of reservations will change plans or cancel. There is no way to know when this might happen so patience and persistence will help you. Any opening from cancellation is available first come first served to the next requester, there is no waiting list.

We are excited about planning another summer of fun with everyone again this week. As we open up our reservations for the new year we know that there will be a lot happy people that can look forward to chalet adventures. We also sadly know that our tiny hotels are so popular that we are unable to host everyone that wishes to join us.
Here are some tips and reminders to help you:
- Being as flexible as you possibly can with your reservation request will improve your chances of getting a reservation.
- We reply to all requests with an Email and successful reservations will also receive a posted statement. Please make sure your Email address is correct, check your spam filters and junk mail if you are not seeing us in your inbox.
- Thank you for being patient as we work our way through the request queue, it is normal to expect a delay of several days before you hear back from us. We will update the availability calendar periodically to show our progress, but be aware that while we are backlogged this week the availability calendar will not be accurate.

Updated CDC Guidance on Mask Wearing
Wearing a face mask is now required in Glacier National Park federal buildings regardless of vaccination status. This is effective immediately and applies to all structures at Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet.
This change is due to new guidance from the CDC and is applicable to Glacier National Park because of Flathead County's "High" (Red) category of community transmission. based on the current CDC COVID Data Tracker.
Guests of the chalets are asked to bring face masks when you visit. We continue to restrict access to chalet buildings to overnight guests only, we are also limiting dining room occupancy at both chalets. Day hikers and visitors may enjoy chalet services outdoors.
Thank you for your assistance as we continue to address the ongoing pandemic.
Be safe out there.
