The chalet was built in 1914 by the Great Northern Railway and is a National Historic Landmark contributing property.
The chalet, nestled in a glacial cirque, consists of two buildings from the Great Northern era: a two story hotel building and a kitchen/dining room building. A restroom facility has been added, but is not part of the historic landmark designation. The dormitory building is built with random rubble masonry, providing a feel of architectural ruggedness, and is topped with a large gable roof that has two dormers on either side. The kitchen building is also made of random rubble masonry, but uses smaller stones and appears less striking in its design. The kitchen building is topped with a lower gable roof.

Unlike Granite Park Chalet, Sperry Chalet provides meal services: dinner, breakfast, and either a trail lunch or an ala carte lunch in the dining room. The guest rooms are private, but in line with the backcountry experience, there is no electricity, heat, or running water.

Sperry Chalet has 17 private guest rooms, ranging in occupancy from one to five guests, various single and double bed arrangements.
