“Very nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We stayed here 5 nights while we explored the Glacier area. Our room came with a wonderful guide of the area - written by the owner Mark. He could answered any questions we had and had a good knowledge of the area. He has bear spray and walking sticks for hikers.

Beer, wine and sodas plus snacks are available in the main house. There are laundry facilities. Our bedroom in the main house was very comfortable. We had a small refrigerator and there are microwaves in the kitchen.

Mark cooks a different breakfast every morning. We had waffles with fresh fruit, croissant egg sandwiches and fritattas as well as coffee, juice and cereal that are always available.

We had interesting breakfast conversations every morning, as is typical at a B&B.

Our only complaint is that breakfast is at 8:30. You could arrange to eat earlier, but that seems like a late start when the sun is up early and the national park is VERY busy in the summer months.

We stayed in the newly renovated big house with 3 plus bedrooms, a large beautiful kitchen and large family room. Laundry facilities were great to have at that stage of our trip. The host was friendly and helpful. They have games and drinks in the B&B house which some of us explored. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed with a large group, taking up two rooms in the main house, and the entire large guest house. The rooms were large, with their own private bathrooms. The guest house is enormous, with a full kitchen with a large amount of cooking utensils (we cooked and grilled dinner on two occasions for 10 people with no problems). Beer and wine is provided for guests, along with decent wireless internet access pretty much anywhere on the property. Even though it is only 15-20 minutes from town, it is dead quiet at night. Wonderful for sleeping.

The owner (Mark) was very flexible with our arrival times, and was an excellent host. He is very knowledgeable about the park and even provided our group with bear spray and hiking poles. The breakfasts are not overly elaborate, but are thoughtfully prepared and delicious. I can't say enough good things about the owner. He runs the B&B because he wants to, rather than having to, and it shows. Everything has thought put behind it and is for the comfort and enjoyment of the guests.

We (husband, myself, our toddler, and another couple) stayed in the guest apartment and it exceeded our expectations. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen, dining, and living room areas were huge, and complete with dishes, pots and pans, puzzles, books, and games. The finishes inside all seemed very new and modern, and there was even a washer/dryer in the attached garage area for our use. In addition to the guest apartment we had access to the main house, where we ate breakfast each morning (delicious!!!) and obtained invaluable tips for seeing Glacier National Park.

Many B&B's do not allow children, but Mark made us and our toddler feel right at home by providing a pack 'n play and high chair for the apartment and another high chair for breakfast in the main house. Our little guy loved all the open space outside, he got to sit in a tractor and swing in the hammock. We didn't get to check out the barn but were told there is a pool table and table hockey in there.

I wish we had stayed here another day or two with more time to explore Glacier and relax in the spacious guest apartment - I suppose we will just have to come back!

Ou family of 5 had plenty of room in the studio apartment above the garage of te guest house. After traveling for 7 days the washer and dryer were wonderful to have. Also enjoyed the wine and beer offered in the main house. The owner was a big help with developing our travel plan in Glacier National Park.

Came in from Glacier National Park after 5 days of roughing it. After a shower in the Columbia Mountain Suite, found a very comfortable downstairs room to enjoy a beer and a good book. Plenty of room for guests to spread out or mingle. Beautiful gardens and mountain view. Close enough to restaurants and far enough away.

Breakfast was a treat. The kids said there was a great recreation room but I was fine enjoying coffee on my private porch.

Just one night at Bad Rock was not enough. The room and setting were beautiful. We stayed in one room of a three-room cabin with a piece of heaven out the back door. Owner knew a ton about West Glacier and helped us modify our hiking plans to perfection (and he demonstrated proper use of bear spray). Wonderful breakfast. I will return if i can.
