I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: spring is one of the best times to visit Western Montana’s Glacier Country. During this time of year, the weather is actually pretty nice, there are tons of baby animals and—the granddaddy of them all—there’s basically no one here.
Sidenote: I do need to warn you that Montana’s weather has a flair for the dramatic (no wonder we get along so well) and in spring it can go from snowing to 70 degrees in a few hours. But I always say our weather is just part of our charm.

Without further ado, meet my top 5 picks for Montana travel deals for spring 2016.

1. 20% off June 2016 at Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge. Located on the west shore of Flathead Lake, family-owned Flathead Lake Lodge is offering 20 percent off all stays in June. Reasons I love Flathead Lake Lodge: family-style dining in their main lodge, kids can run free (and still be safe), incredibly nice horses and genuine, true Montana hospitality.

2. Spring into Glacier at the Belton Chalet. Located just outside the west entrance to Glacier National Park, the Belton Chalet has a “Spring into Glacier” travel deal that includes a one-night stay and dinner at the on-site Belton Grill for $180 per couple. Why I love this deal: the Belton Chalet has an incredible history, cozy lodge rooms and I’m a BIG fan of Chef Melissa’s cooking. An added bonus: Glacier National Park is one minute away.
