Enjoy your vacation in historic Glacier National Park while staying on the shores of beautiful Lake McDonald. This newly built, privately owned cabin is the perfect place to re-energize after a day of hiking the trails of the Park or floating the rapids with a guided tour on the Flathead River.
Awaken to the priceless view of Logan Pass and the famed Going-to-the-Sun Road. The cabin sleeps 4, with sleeping areas on the 2nd floor. The cabin is not handicap accessible.
The property has its own beach with a boat dock for sunning or swimming. A public boat launch is a short distance away in the village of Apgar. The cozy living room will assure your relaxation after serving up a meal in the full kitchen or on the outdoor barbeque.
Scenic golfing (18 holes) is available 2 miles down the road in West Glacier, or, if you choose, drive a scenic route to Columbia Falls, Kalispell, Whitefish or Bigfork where you will find World Class Championship Golf Courses, all within 30 minutes from the 'Boathouse.' Several fine restaurants are available in Apgar, within walking distance, or in West Glacier. There are also small general stores in these two locations.
The Visitor’s Center in Apgar can assist you in planning your activities. If you prefer not to drive, you may choose to utilize the shuttle system for your tour through the Park.
After you have explored Glacier Park, you can travel west on highway 2 to find many more fun filled activities, all within a 30 minute drive. Whatever the days’ adventures bring, find rest and relaxation at the Lake McDonald 'Boathouse.'
The owners and their family will probably be occupying cabin #1 next to the 'Boathouse' but will respect the renter’s privacy. No smoking on the premises will be allowed.
Come and stay at the Boathouse and witness the history and grandeur of Glacier National Park!

About The Owner
My name is Kitty Dowaliby. I'm Mike and Sally Dowaliby's daughter-in-law and I am acting as manager for reservations for their beautiful property.
Why The Owner chose West Glacier
The owner's family homesteaded on land further north on Lake McDonald prior to it becoming a National Park. A devastating fire destroyed the original home so the family was able to acquire the present land. The original house on the current land was taken down to accommodate the current homes.
What makes this cabin unique
Our cabin is located in Glacier Park and has a phenomenal view of Logan Pass and the Going-to-the-Sun Road. We enjoy the 'hidden away' private cabin but we have access to restaurants, shopping and golf in Apgar and West Glacier and other activities located in surrounding towns.
Guestbook comments from the manager
This is a magical place. We are filled with inspiration and appreciation for the natural beauty of the lake, mountains, birds, fish, bears, goats, sheep marmots, snakes, clouds and sky! Thank you for building The Boathouse and renting it to us. We will be back!
