ST. MARY, MO-The Black family recently sold St. Mary Lodge & Resort, an 86-acre, 117-room development at the east entrance to Glacier National Park. The property sold for slightly less than $10 million, according to the firm that handled the disposition, HREC Investment Advisors.

The new owners are John Blomfield, previously a hotel operator in Alaska, and Johnny Noe. The deal includes 20 acres of developable land that the new owners will use to expand the resort, HREC broker Michael Cahill tells

Located at one of the entrances to the Going to the Sun Road, the resort opened in 1933 to coincide with the opening of the Going to the Sun Road, and has been owned by the Black Family ever since. Shortly after World War II, Ronald Reagan stayed at the resort during the filming of “Cattle Queen of Montana” with Barbara Stanwyck.
