Welcome to East Glacier!
Brownies is a charming, rustic hostel, bakery, deli, café, and general store
at the eastern gateway to Glacier National Park.
Majestic glaciers, rushing streams, 10,000-foot mountains, tumbling waterfalls, and abundant wildlife make Glacier National Park a unique wilderness and natural history experience.
Just 8 miles from the Two Medicine entrance to the park (and 5 blocks from the East Glacier Amtrak station) you’ll find Brownies Hostel and Bakery waiting to welcome you.
We’re open early May through October 1, weather permitting
Brownies is proud to be Montana’s only Hostelling International location
