Overview

West Glacier House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom with king bed, 1 Bath

Beginning the 2015 season this riverfront home will only be available for up to two persons.

Newer one level home on the Flathead River with river frontage and views of the peaks of Glacier National Park. Walk along the sheltered sand and rock beaches of this Scenic Corridor for as far as the eye can see. Great fishing. Catch rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, bull trout, whitefish, etc., right from the property edge. Large kitchen, breakfast bar, and dining table overlooking river make eating in a pleasure. A barbecue is provided. Relax on the large cedar deck while enjoying the beauty and therapeutic sounds of the river. The privacy and scenery leave you in awe. There are many private sitting areas along this riverfront property where you can wander off to enjoy some extra solitude. One of the assets of this unique property is where the house is situated. There are no homes right next to you, as is usually the case along prime riverfront locations. You can relax on the deck without the next door neighbor knowing! Woods surrounding the home afford privacy as it sits in the middle of three acres close to the river. Even though you are in a wooded area, the landscape allows plenty of sun to bask in should that be your desire. The dead-end location assures no drive-by traffic. If you want your vacation time to be a get-a-way, this is the place for you!

A Bald eagle's nest can be viewed with a scope right from the comfort of the great room - watch the baby eagles feed and learn to fly. Golden and bald eagles, white whistling swans, pileated woodpeckers, blue heron, sandhill cranes and assorted other waterfowl and deer also frequent this area.

The bedroom is furnished with a king size Sealy Posturepedic mattress and exquisite Montana handmade burled log furniture. The bath is across from the bedroom and there is a hall door that closes off from the great room so you have your own private suite; sleep or rest quietly while your other half watches a movie or cooks. The spacious great room has two leather swivel recliners to kick back in and watch the news or a movie on a 46' flat screen TV. The bedroom has a ceiling fan. The great room has two. The bath features a 6' long tubs with handicap set-up. Your vacation won't feel crowded in this home located on private wooded acreage on a dead end road. Plenty of parking for large vehicles or boats. The home is in the quaint town of Hungry Horse (population approx. 900) which has a large supermarket, two gas station/stores, restaurants, churches, antique shops, and a tavern, but your vacation home is in a secluded, quiet spectacular location on the river away from it all. Glacier Park is only 10 minutes from your doorstep. Glacier Park International Airport is 15 minutes from the home.

The Bob Marshall Wilderness, Hungry Horse Reservoir, Hungry Horse Dam are just minutes away by vehicle. Lion Lake is a wonderful warm swimming lake for children and adults to enjoy, which is only four minutes from the home. Take guided river float trips along the river adjoining Glacier Park. Books are provided in the home to help you find hiking or activities during your stay. There are sports rental facilities nearby to rent equipment. Enjoy Montana at it's finest!

Fantastic Riverfront Cabin close to Glacier

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Darlene's beautiful home for a week in early August. I enjoyed fly fishing on the Flathead river early in the morning before we headed to Glacier for the day. This home is ideally situated away from the busy West Glacier area, but close enough to the park and also to Whitefish to satisfy the "shopping bug" for our wives (lots of pubs in Whitefish to occupy "man time"). In the evening, we enjoyed watching the hummingbirds visiting the feeders hanging from the roof of the deck and listening to the river. The night before we left, Darlene was kind enough to set up the spotting scope for us to observe the adolescent bald eagles across the river. This home is very clean and well maintained. We give this property (and its' owner) "two thumbs up".

Lovely Riverfront Home

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at this property for 3 weeks while visiting Glacier National Park. It was wonderful. If you are looking for a comfortable home in a peaceful environment close to GNP and the many attractions of the area, then this is the home for you. Only 15 minutes from the West Gate of GNP it is an ideal location to the park. Sitting on the back porch you can catch a view of the eagles nesting in a tree across the river, watch the hummingbirds gather around the porch and listen to the sounds of the river. An ideal place to find peace and relaxation. If I ever find my way back to this area, Darlene will be the first one I call for lodging. This place is a winner.

Majestic Hideway, after spending the day in Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here when his parents visited us in Emigrant, Montana from NJ. My husband & I (and his parents) traveled from our home in Emigrant, Montana to this lovely getaway home. We had a great time in Glacier and it was very nice to get up in the morning make breakfast & a picnic lunch for the day, fish a little and then head into the park for the day. Upon returning to the house in the evening, it was great to BBQ on the grill and have dinner in the house. We had long days in Glacier and it was very convenient to eat at the house rather than having to go back to the house, shower & change and then go back out to eat again. We all loved the back porch which overlooked the river and we spent evenings out there just listening to the surrounding wilderness and gazing at the stars. The house itself is very well appointed and spacious. The kitchen had everything we need to prepare all our meals..you do need to bring your own seasonings and plastic wrap, etc. We brought all of food and supplies with us, living in Montana BUT if you are not from the area an possibly flying in there is a Costco in Kalispell and there are grocery stores in the area of the house that I did see. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom had everything we needed. It was great to be able to do laundry while we were here as well. The combination living room, dining room and kitchen was very spacious and relaxing to come home to after a fun filled day.The listing description & photos were accurate and the property itself was very clean and well taken care of. I would recommend this property to small groups, families, girls getaway week and really anyone looking to get away, see Glacier National Park and enjoy this great state we live in. In addition to Glacier National Park & Fishing; I would NOT miss the Izaak Walton Inn. When our family comes to the area we love to go there for breakfast and eat out on the deck and watch the trains go by....one of America's "hidden" gems. Also, the town of Whitefish is just adorable (lots of pubs,western stores and boutiques) and if your are looking for good food, go to Jersey Boys Pizza, they are the real deal! My husband and I moved to this great state of Montana 10 years ago from NJ and we definitely miss the pizza, so we always hit this place when we are in the area. Also, this region of Montana has the best Huckleberry, we think, so indulge!!!! Lastly, the owner of this property was very personable and truly loves this area.

Wonderful stay at the most beautiful home. You will want to come back.

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the hardest reviews to write! There are just to many excellent things to write about. When we arrived at the house we knew that this was going to be the best vacation ever. Then we walked in, I literally took a deep breath and all of the work worries and stress just went away. And if you are looking for a vacation to "get away" stop looking and book this place right now. The house is located on a quiet dead-end road and is surrounded by trees. There is a house located near by but with all the trees and the secluded location you don't even realize it. The abundant wildlife is amazing because the river is *right there*. Just look at the pictures from the deck. My husband and I fished every morning and I would have to say, the Osprey that we watched each morning were better fisherman than us! Darlene, the owner, had the spotting scope already setup on the deck and focused right on the eagle nest. How awesome is that? I drank my coffee every morning, looked through the scope to see the eagles and listen to them call for the adults to come and feed them. The house is sparkling clean. Darlene takes great pride in maintaining her beautiful home. If you care to even bother to read the one bad review, amongst the countless Excellent reviews- that guy is crazy. I would say the only correct thing he wrote there are rugs all over in the home(and no they are not a tripping hazard like the guy said-good grief). And like I said, Darlene takes great pride in keeping her home beautiful. Wouldn't you? The home is larger than what it looks like in the pictures. You have everything provided for you, pots/pans, storage containers, grill, etc. So don't worry about anything. At night the cafe right on the corner(about a 5 minute walk) has huckleberry everything. Get the pie and then get another, trust me. You are 10-15 minutes from the west entrance. You are 10-15 minutes from Whitefish... This home is located in the most convenient place. Get to know Darlene, she is a wonderful and charming person. She has lived in the Hungry Horse area all her life. She knows where all the good get away from the tourists places are, the history of the area, and the good places to eat. Darlene also gets back to your emails quickly if you have any questions and is very accommodating. Again, if you want a relaxing place, to enjoy the quietness of nature, to see local wildlife, this place is exactly what you need. You will feel like you are HOME.

Beautiful riverfront property close to Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5
Darlene was very pleasant to work with both by e-mail initially, and then in person when we arrived. We were very appreciative of all the information she provided as well as her lovely cabin. The cabin is in a perfect location....secluded and quiet, yet close enough to walk to town for a meal and only a few minutes from Glacier National Park and the airport. We had an awesome time exploring the park both in Montana and Canada. Make sure you bring your passport so you can visit the Waterton Lakes area in Canada. While up there, we got to see a very large black bear and 2 grizzly cubs - very exciting! Luckily, both sighting were from the safety of our car as the bears walked in the road. We hiked the St Mary's Fall trail and Avalanche Lake trail in the park. Both were gorgeous! We ate at Elkhorn Grill, Belton Chalet and Lake McDonald Lodge. We would definitely return to all of them. Evenings were spent eating huckleberry ice cream and drinking wine on the lovely deck overlooking the river. It was a perfect way to end our busy days in the park. Though the weather was warm during our visit, we were always pleasantly surprised at the lovely cool temperatures in the cabin. The king bed was very comfortable and the master bath perfect for a couple with separate shower/toilet area from sink area. Thanks again for sharing your cabin, Darlene!

Two couples vacation

Darlene, thank you so much for your hospitality and sharing your home with us for our trip to GNP. It was in a great spot for easy access to the western and northern parts of the park, and the pictures really did not do the home justice. It was very clean and well-maintained, and the kitchen had plenty of accessories for cooking and eating in. My husband and I along with his brother and sister-in-law enjoyed ourselves in the park and looked forward to going home-away-from-home to cook dinner, play cards, and sit on the deck to watch the eagles. The split-bedroom private suites were a big plus! You were so right when you said to close the windows during the day to keep the house cool.
From your home base we drove to Polebridge and Bowman lake. Also Avalanche Lake, Logans Pass (a must see hike), the Hungry Horse dam, and the Lake McDonald/West Glacier/Apgar Village area. The local grocery store was well stocked and had good prices. And you can imagine our surprise when we arrived home a little over a week later and received our deposit refund check from you! Yes, we would all recommend your home for a stay at GNP. Thanks again! Patti
