Experience luxury inside a restored locomotive. The Great Northern 441 is unlike any resort you’ll find in Glacier National Park – or anywhere else! Outside, this historic locomotive represents the Great Northern diesels that once rolled past the Izaak Walton Inn every day. Inside, it’s a warm, rustic refuge for two couples or a small family, with luxury and amenities unsurpassed anywhere in the Glacier Park area. There is a 400-year-old reclaimed oak floor, wall accents of birch, cedar and cottonwood, leather comfort sleeper sofa, native Montana Argillite stone fireplace, rubbed oil bronze fixtures, and a 46-inch LCD television for use of DVD's. GN 441’s interior creatively reflects Montana’s unique blend of flora, fauna and geology. The bedroom invites you with a king size bed topped with a Hudson Bay blanket and pillowcases. An antique wardrobe harmonizes with the blue pine ceiling. Radiator fans in the roof have been transformed into skylights to let in the Montana sunshine during the summer. And on those cold Montana nights, you can crank up the coziness with the fireplace.
