Rental Home
Nestled in the pines, our home is spacious, secluded, and the perfect place to begin and end your daily adventures in and around Glacier National Park. We are located just two miles from the park's west entrance, so you can beat the crowds and get an early start hiking, biking, or driving the world renowned Going to the Sun Road. If guided whitewater rafting or fishing adventures are in your plans, we are located within a quarter mile of three rafting guide services. Several of these companies also rent bicycles and backpacking gear, and serve food and beverages at on-site cafes. At the end of your busy day, decompress on our front porch, grill up some steaks on the barbecue, or hang out by the fire pit in our secluded backyard. We even have a swing set and wooden fort for the kids.

We even have a swing set and wooden fort for the kids. We have internet and good cellular coverage so you can keep in touch with the modern world from our rural Montana hideaway. Our home is fully stocked with the basics as well as some extras. No need to buy most spices and condiments, or laundry and dish cleaning supplies. All you'll need to bring is your menu and the food. Our home has three bedrooms, a laundry area, two bathrooms, a living room upstairs, and a family room downstairs. We strive to provide all the amenities you might have in your own home, with some Montana extras. For those lucky enough to arrive in late July or early August, wild huckleberries abound on our property and on the millions of acres of federal land surrounding us. Even though our home is off the beaten path, guided outdoor adventures, equipment rentals, helicopter tours, and restaurants are close by. A brand new paved bicycle and walking path leading into Glacier National Park is just a few hundred yards from our front door. More

After spending a few days of day trips and backpacking in Glacier, "Glacier's back door" was a great place to finish our trip as a family. The house is well cared for, tastefully decorated, with beautiful grounds that easily absorbed our family of five. We...More

The house was perfect for our vacation - location is perfect for traveling into the nearby towns and West Glacier. It felt secluded, but was less than a minutes drive from the main road. We loved the feel of the cozy cottage, with ornate landscaping,...More
