This 2300 square foot rustic retreat is located across the river from Glacier National Park, in West Glacier, Montana. The home features an eight-person hot tub on the back deck, which is 20 feet from the river's edge, and a large front deck.

Our vacation home is located in West Glacier, Montana — one mile from the west entrance to Glacier National Park. It fronts directly on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River at the confluence with McDonald creek.
Across the street is the 18 hole Glacier View Golf Course, and across the river is Glacier National Park. It is located at the dead end of River Bend Drive affording much privacy. It is common to see deer, elk, moose, beavers, bears, eagles, osprey and all sorts of wild fowl.
As the river level lowers, fly-fishing is excellent from the gravel bar just outside your back door.
We have furnished the cabin with comfortable Arts & Crafts-era antiques, new furniture and the walls are adorned with wonderful artwork. The home is equipped with Satellite television with a DVD player, CD player, wireless Internet.
The Village of West Glacier is at the entrance to Glacier Park. The famous “Going to the Sun” road starts in West Glacier and goes all the way across the Park, offering countless opportunities for access to the Park interior.
West Glacier features 4 raft companies who offer exciting rafting, fishing and hiking trips. For dining out, there are several options to choose from. A grocery store, saloon (this is Montana after all), gift shops, post office and gas stations complete the amenities available.
Apgar Village is just inside the Park on Lake McDonald and offers lake access (boat rentals), a restaurant, and gift stores. The Lake McDonald Lodge is ten miles away and offers a fine restaurant, lake tours, and “Jammer” tours of the “Going to the Sun” road.

Guestbook comments from the manager
As soon as we glimpsed your magic ‘cabin in the woods’, we all sighed. On exploring the fabulous interior…it was pure love… The girls in our group toured your treasures on the walls and ran our fingers over the timber furniture attempting to discover the past history of your collectibles.
Although rain fell and the misting clouds obscured our view into the valleys deep below, the Park in October was serenely beautiful. Our hope for bear sightings will have to be on another visit.
For Australians peeking into your National Parks and staying in your personalized home, it gave us a taste of Montana bliss.
Thank you for sharing.
