This place was an amazing find! It was secluded yet a short drive to the park as well as restaurants and grocery stores in town. My husband and I stayed in one of the small cabins for a week. Although small, it has all the amenities, which allowed us to come back and prepare the majority of our meals. The... More

We stayed here a few years ago and the horrid experience has never left me. I have never written a bad review of an accommodation before and it has taken me a while to get this out of me. I was reminded of the experience when booking another visit to the Glacier National Park area. We booked the upstairs suite... More

Stayed at the Grizzly Cabin with my family for 4 nights. For our whole Montana trip this was absolutely the best place of them all. The staff was super friendly, the cabin was AWESOME and the place in general felt like a little piece of heaven. We would love to go back some day and spend much more time.

Their "backyard" has a unique combination of ecosystems. Highly recommend a tour with Nancy and Smoky! Feels like you are in the wilderness, but with all the comforts of home. We stayed in the lodge. Comfortable bed with a beautiful quilt made by Nancy. Ask for a look at her quilting room. (She also does quilting retreats at the lodge... More

A road in the near-wilderness leads to a beautifully situated log house/cabin getaway, so quiet, and yet, waiting for the eventual appearance of a bear, mountain lion, wolf, or eagle. Helps to have Smoky, the Newfy outside standing guard! Inside a colorful homemade quilt with Smoky Bear on it graces a comfy bed in a large, clean, cozy, room. A... More

I stayed a week with family in the large four bedroom cabin. It was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen had all the cooking tools one could want and the whole place was spotless. We used the washer and dryer, and the hosts provided the laundry soap. I especially liked that the hosts loaned us bear spray (we hiked alot in... More

My husband and I were planning our vacation to Glacier National Park for the first time. We were very nervous to book a cabin in another state before being able to check it out. I read the reviews on several locations and it came down to Smoky Bear Ranch and one other location. We were so pleasantly surprised with our... More

What a wonderful experience! Our three nights at "Smoky Bear Ranch" were completely enjoyable. We elected to stay out of the "touristy" lodging facilities and this B&B exceeded our expectations in every way. "Smoky", the 150 lb Newfoundland "puppy" greated us. Our host welcomed us by telling us about the area surronding the ranch and also issued us "Bear Spray"... More

We round the cabin to be spotless and beautiful but the owners had a terrible personality for running a B&B. When my son asked him about the internet signal being weak his response was the computer was a piece of crap and he should buy a new one. At the end of the week they charged us more accusing us...
