  • Glacier National Park vacation


    The cabin was very clean and the property tidy. Theresa and Gary were excellent host. The property is located in a perfect location to access both the west and east gate to Glacier National Park

  • Perfect location for Glacier National Park


    A wonderful property located between the West Entrance of GNP and the east side which makes it perfect for exploring all sides of the park. This spotless cabin was equipped with a full kitchen including cooking basics (oil, spices), satellite tv, dvd, washer/dryer including all detergents and basic toiletries. The host is very welcoming and creates the perfect balance of being available to you while also offering you your privacy. The property has plenty of space for a family to enjoy, including camp fire and horseshoes as well as a nice creek just a minute down the road. Would definitely recommend.

    We selected this VRBO based on its proximity to Glacier National Park and we are SO GLAD to have stayed in this cabin. Traveled in with my husband and our 2 kids, and stayed for 6 nights. Gary and Theresa are the owners and they live on property, were AMAZING hosts to us. So warm and friendly and made us feel right at home, they welcomed us in like old friends but still gave us space to have our own quality time together as a family. Treated us with fresh huckleberries, pork chops, apple butter, and a cold beer for my hubs! The cabin itself had all of the amenities of home- including full kitchen (ridiculously well stocked), laundry, even little things like having sandwich bags was so helpful. The cabin is even better in person than it is in the photos- we had more space then we thought we would. Kids slept upstairs in the loft and then master BR is on the main level. How lucky we were to sleep with the windows open in August, oh that fresh mountain air! The cabin is close to a train track but the noise did not bother us as we got used to it, we slept with 'white noise' app on and if it tells you anything we still slept with the windows open! The cabin was very clean, beds and bedding quite comfortable too. There was also plenty of space outside in the lawn area- my husband and son played catch a lot and I sat out on the porch to read and enjoy the fresh air. We left the cabin each day to go hiking or explore the area, and it was a nice feeling to come home to this place at the end of each day. Would easily stay here again if (when!) we make our way back up to this part of the country.

  • Nice log cabin


    Great hosts, extremely well stocked, lovely deck. Be aware that trains are nearby and it’s a bit of a drive to east Glacier and Many Glacier. Beautiful authentic log cabin.
