I don't mind the shared bathroom but then the price should be more in the hostel range. Directions to the cabins was very poor. Google maps directed us in the opposite direction so it took us 2 hours to find it. But upon mentioning our difficulties the clerk shrugged it off and said it had happened many times before. Maybe that needs to be fixed. Then we had to trek back to the clerk to find out how to access the bathroom. The bathrooms were very cramped which was a bummer since you are bringing all of your toiletries, etc with you and no place to put them. The cabins did not have A/C and were rather hot. The bed mattress was very hard so wasn't able to get much sleep and I limped for two days after. Had to go to the lounge to use WIFI and it was spotty at best. Just wasn't that good of an experience and way overpriced!!

Booked what they advertise as cabins and get there to find our cabin is a stinky tent ball suspended in the air between trees. the cords suspending them are like bungee cords and give you motion sickness. we felt sick after being in them for less than 2 minutes. my girlfriend almost puked and only spent a few minutes in there and had to get out. they assured us we would receive a refund. After over 2 months and contacting them over 5 times still trying to get our refund, no luck. That's just bad management and bad business. Every time I contact them they say that a manager will contact me about it and never do. I guess this is their way of ripping hard working people off. I would avoid this place and go with reputable lodging. If this is the new way to do business for them it is totally wrong and unethical in every way. Im not letting this go. Its a matter of principal now and business ethics.

Horrible. We left immediately after seeing the "cocoon." The property includes Clear Sky resort domes (which are much bigger), cabins, and the treehouse cocoons. The cocoons are tiny- nothing like the domes. It's small, hot, and smells like plastic. There isn't enough ventilation, but enough to let in several flies and a wasp, which were circling around the top. It also felt flimsy. There were earplugs at the checkout desk, which doesn't bode well. Highway and train close by. There is no cell reception and we didn't see WiFi (maybe by tavern)? So we kept driving and found a lovely hotel room in Browning.

The cabin was adorable, convenient to the park, employees were incredibly helpful, s’mores kits, fires, games and allowed our dog ❤️❤️. Truly a gem. FYI- the internet is pretty slow, the tavern is cute but doesn’t have tons of selection and cell service is questionable- truly all of these helped us to just chill and enjoy being together and going with the flow.

Staying in Clear Sky Resort was like nothing I've ever experienced. My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and what a treat it was. The 'domes' are such a unique getaway, but offer all you need to be comfortable during the stay. Equipped with fireplace, swinging chair, bathrooms, and such a comfy bed we were so relaxed. We loved taking a hike in the morning on the nearby trial, and spending the evening looking at the stars. It was such a convenient distance to Glacier National, and surrounding communities. The live music was great, and the staff was so friendly. If you're looking for a beautiful getaway that will give you memories for years to come, look no further than clear sky resorts! Can't wait for our next trip.
