Our cottage was very clean with decent beds and enough room for two suitcases. There was a basin in the main room close to the shower/toilet. The cottage looked so pretty from the outside but the internal decor was cheap chain motel interiors. That was a disappointment however the real problem was the shower water suddenly ran extremely hot or... More

The setting alone is worth staying here. There are chairs outside each cottage, so you can just sit and take in the beauty of the area. Very relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Remember this is not a "chain" motel, as there are no coffeemakers in the rooms and they don't offer breakfast. Each cottage does have... More

Jacobson's Cottages is a cute concept inside the charming little town of East Glacier. East Glacier is a beautiful area that is quiet and secluded from the rest of Glacier National Park. My family enjoys the cute shops there and restaurants in town, especially Serrano's Mexican, which is down the road past the Amtrak station. The East Glacier Lodge is... More

Jacobson's is a small enclave of separate cottages, rather spartan, but adequate in most respects. We had a two queen bed arrangement in ours that worked well for us. There is also a small refrigerator in the room, and a sink and vanity separate from the shower room. That was handy too. The beds were pretty comfortable, but nothing plush... More

We stayed here after spending the day on the east side of the park. It was close to all the shops and cafes in the city of East Glacier. I would recommending staying here as the cottages are clean and comfortable. The owners are nice, too.

We just spent two nights in one of these great cottages. Very peaceful, yet within walking distance to several restaurants and stores. These cottages are comfortable and VERY clean. Owners are very helpful and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this property as a great place to stay while exploring Glacier National Park.

These cabins are a perfect spot to camp out in the Glacier National Park area. They are somewhat sparse, but this is in keeping with almost all accommodations in the area(including the Pricy historic hotels run by the park). The rooms are clean and bright and the beds are comfortable. East Glacier is located near the attractions on the East... More

We enjoyed our two night stay! There were two comfortable queen beds and a fold out bed for our son as well. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The cottages are in walking distance of the historic train station, Glacier Park Lodge and the cute little town of East Glacier. We will return to the cottages, but this time... More

Nice period cottages, with modern updates and very neat and tidy. Owners are friendly and very helpful. And, it's next door to Luna's Restaurant. It has lovely views and is handy to many of Glacier's beautiful places.
