We stayed in the handicapped cabin here, which was the only cabin available. The cabin bedroom, bathroom and living room were clean but I noticed that the kitchen cabinets had food stuck to them. The cabin is located at the top of the hill in a sunny patch of field, whereas other cabins in the area are surrounded by trees. As a result, the cabin gets very hot and stuffy and though there is air conditioning in the cabin, it was not running when we arrived and literature that the company provides discourages using the a.c. That said, on our first night, we left the windows open at night and closed them in the morning so that the cabin would not be quite as stuffy that afternoon.
The cabins are operated through the Glacier Rafting Co. shop which is at the front of the cabins. The young ladies working that the shop were not very friendly though the woman who we interacted with for our cabin was helpful and nice.
Our cabin offered the basics for stay in the wilderness without having to camp. We had a small kitchen, a bathroom, a living room with sofa bed, a kitchen table, and a bedroom with two beds. The cabin smelled a bit musty, felt stuffy and was decorated with cheesy pictures of hunting and fishing. While it was more comfortable to stay here than to go camping, it was not a cozy place to stay.
Next time we travel to Montana, we will probably stay with a different cabin rental business. This location is close to Glacier National Park, but I'd rather drive a little bit farther and stay at a cabin with a b&b feel. We stayed at another cabin where we were treated like people and not simply numbers filling a reservation.
