Great Northern 441 Luxury Locomotive Lodge

A Mountain Retreat like no other

Snowy mountains at the Izaak Walton Inn
Luxury aboard GN 441

This is what
you’ve been looking for.

Reach out and grasp the serenity of a mist-shrouded mountain. Embrace a rushing stream. Reel in a trout, or a glimpse of a mountain goat. Lean into the breeze whistling through the pines.

Or not. Drench yourself in Class IV rapids. Snowshoe the trails of the Blackfoot and the Flathead. Ride a horse. Or white-knuckle one of America’s most spectacular drives.

Welcome to the Crown of the Continent, a stunning land of extremes where every soul can find their own adventure.

Welcome to Great Northern 441,
your perfect base camp.

“Montana is the window to the soul and restoration of the spirit. This is our second trip for my husband and I and it is truly a magical place.”
