We spent 6 nights in Cabin #9 (2 families of 4). Cabin was perfectly comfortable, easily sleeping all of us. The 3 teenage girls moved 3 mattresses into the downstairs living room, the rest of us slept in the bedrooms. Set-up was ideal. We went food shopping on our first day & cooked/bbq'ed several meals, eating out on the lovely deck. Full service grocery store about 20 mins away. After dinner the kids played volleyball and looked for the resident bear which we were told had been hanging around. We waited the whole week to see him & finally did on our very last night! We all ran out with our cameras and got some great shots (keeping a safe distance of course). Weather was warm and the upstairs didn't cool off very well but the bedroom a/c was great for sleeping. Cabin had everything we needed including hair dryers, dishwasher detergent, aluminum foil, corkscrew, wifi, all pots/pans/dishes, etc. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation and Sally & crew were very accommodating & easy to work with. We hope to be back before too long!

Stayed 2 nights in a 1 bedroom cabin - very nice. Cabin is a nice size, very clean, grill on front porch, nice kitchen. Staff very friendly and helpful. Purpose of visit was to do an overnight raft trip on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Had a wonderful time - Erik was our guide. Everything ran very smoothly and professionally and he was not only a knowledgeable guide, but an excellent chef and ran a wonderful overnight camp. Our son loved him, and he was so nice to him. Would definitely stay here again and go on another trip with these folks - a high quality, professional operation with excellent attention to detail.

These cabins are located barely a mile outside of Glacier National Park. We stayed in cabin 5, a one bedroom with two beds. The cabins are very well-equipped. The kitchen has everything you will need and they even supplied some coffe, filters and cooking spray to get you started. The cabins are extremely clean also. We love being out in nature all day but it's great to come back to some comforts after a long day of hiking. TV and wifi worked with no issues. No problems with train noise like other places in the area We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Somewhat close together but still offer privacy.

I've travelled all around the world and nothing compared to the fantastic people, incredible location, and the private amenities of this cabin retreat right outside Glacier National Park. The 1 bedroom cabin was perfect for my friend and I affording us the luxury of a quiet evening on the porch after a day of rafting, fishing or hiking. I was impressed with the camp's amenities for larger groups and will be bringing business associates back for a retreat. The Outdoor Center is perfect for planning guided rafting trips down the river, fly fishing for the novice to expert level or simply getting expert advise on Glacier National Park. It was a perfect week in a perfect setting.

New cabins just outside Glacier NP. Great location. Cabins have fully stocked kitchen with all modern amenities. Very clean and very private. Great option for families looking for a good base camp while touring Glacier.

Room Tip: Cabins are well off the road. Don't leave food on the porch, you are in bear country.

Our family of four stayed five nights in a one bedroom, very private cabin, with hotel comforts ( Daily cleaning by staff, fresh towels (if desired)). There was plenty of room with my wife and I in one queen bed, my daughter in the other and my son on the futon in the living room. The cabin kitchen was very well stocked with everything, coffee maker (including filters and even some coffee), toaster, paper towels, dish-washing liquid, cookware, plastic-ware, cups, mugs, glasses, utensils, etc.. The price of the cabin is a little more than some other places but we felt like we more than made up for it just by the ability to cook our own meals. We made breakfast, packed lunches for a day in the park, and cooked dinners. We bought a cooler and packed it with food in Missoula. Food at the camp stores around West Glacier is very expensive. We supplemented our dinners with take-out pizza from Glacier Highland Restaurant, and take-out salads from West Glacier Restaurant, both very good, and about 1/2 mile away. The satellite TV worked great as did the WIFI. We took advantage of the discounted trips with Glacer Outdoor Center and took a very fun 1/2 day whitewater trip, and a 1/2 fly fishing float trip. The fly fishing guide was great and had my son and I, seasoned salt-water fishermen, but virgin fly fishermen, catching trout in little time. We also enjoyed: playing horseshoes after dinner, reading on the porch with the great views, grilling burgers on our cabin's own grill. Some have commented n the trains: not a problem, the trains (about 1/2 mile away) do come often (every hour or two) and my son is a light sleeper, so we closed the front windows at night, but I did not notice the sound from the bedroom with the back windows open.

Awesome for large groups, very clean, simple and straight forward accommodations. Cabins have everything you need for your stay. Small fishing pond is great for kids. We even managed to see a double rainbow. Definitely will come back again!
