I rented cabin 200 with a few friends a couple of weeks ago. The cabin is 100 years old, but has been updated with all the comforts of home and has plenty of room for up to 10 people, comfortably. Free Wi-Fi was a bonus. John is an exceptional host. He was very knowledgeable about the park and extremely helpful... More

My husband and I spent a part of our honeymoon in one of their cabin house 813. We had booked 200 but because it had an internet problem, John gave us the bigger and better cabin 813. He was extremely helpful right from the time we reached there. He came with us to the house and showed us around and... More

My husband, 1-year old daughter and I stayed in the Dancing Bears Inn "Baby Bear" cabin for a week while visiting family. It's literally a 5-minute drive to East Glacier. We were at Swiftcurrent lake in maybe 15-20 minutes after leaving the house. It's a little tricky to find the property on your own, which is probably why the owners... More

What a darling cabin! We were thrilled to each have our own room. Queen beds in each downstairs bedroom and 2 queen beds in the roomy loft. House has airconditioning, but lovely cool nights even on a 92 degree day make it unnecessary. House was immaculately clean. Wood floors, full kitchen. TVs with dish TV. Walking distance to Luna's and... More

The management was VERY accommodating when we arrived with a mix up on the reservation that must have been my fault. The owner has purchased several houses and also a second motel site in the town, and that is where he was able to place us. We were in a new building, full kitchen, very comfortable. We really liked it,... More

The room we had was small and somewhat dated. The management was outstanding! They are very helpful and very friendly. The room was adequate with a queen bed, microwave and refrigerated.it was quiet and had AC. They had snacks all day and good assortment of breakfast items. We did enjoy our stay.

Maybe some have good reviews because they didn't cancel, etc. However I see reviews on here of people who followed proper protocol for cancellation and didn't receive their refund..because they are liars and a scam. I booked a room 12/30/14 for 9/5/15. Our flight to leave Great Falls was changed in June to leaving around 7am instead of 2pm. So... More
