The Izaak Walton Inn is a historic inn in Essex, Montana, USA. It was originally built by the Great Northern Railway in 1939 for lodging railway workers. In addition to railway lodging, the hotel was also originally envisioned to perhaps become an official southern gateway to Glacier National Park, but that plan never materialized. Today, the inn is at the only flag stop along the route of Amtrak's Empire Builder.
A van from the Inn meets both the morning eastbound and the evening westbound Empire Builders to convey departing/arriving passengers between the platform and the Inn. The Izaak Walton Inn is open year round.
The Tudor Revival inn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. The inn has 33 rooms for rent within the inn itself, with some other space available in refurbished cabooses, EMD F45 Diesel Locomotive 441, etc. It is privately owned.(Wikipedia)
