I am a cancer survivor who has practically retired from a position in the Technology Leasing Industry.

I enjoy people, family, hunting, fishing and NASCAR.

Theresa and Gary Steffen purchased this cabin in 2011

We are only 56 miles from the Kalispell Airport and 20 min.'s away from either entrance to Glacier National Park and a train station, the Isaac Walton, for Trail Rides, Cross Crountry Skiing, is located just 5 miles away with car rentals available. We are also close to the Continental Divide, Many Glacier and Waterton National Park. This cabin is located in the heart of the Flathead Valley. You can also enjoy Winter activities, Skiing and Snowshoeing, Glacier National Park is a great place to get out & enjoy the solitude. Most of Glacier's roads are closed in the wintertime, but that's ok, cause snow makes for ideal ski routes. you can still enjoy Going to the Sun Road, Lake McDonald Lodge, Polebridge and Autumn Creek Trail.The Isaak Walton Inn boasts more than 30km of groomed trails at Essex. in Whitefish you have skiing, and cross country trails.Bigfork is an awesome place to visit as well, in the winter or summer seasons. Don't forget Snow mobiling! Ice Fishing!.. in the summer-Play Golf at the Whitefish Country Club, East Glacier and West Glacier! The list goes on and on and on....

Friendly people, peacefullness with breath taking scenery all around you. We have too many activities to mention. We call this Montana Cabin our Spiritual Regrouping Haven. We find that when we are in the mountain, We are at peace. The air is pure, the water is pure, what more could you ask for? We just Love it here and know that you will tooo!

Mostly great

  • 4 of 5
There's not much I can add to the good things people have said about the cabin and Gary & Theresa, because the other reviews have touched on just about everything. But what we didn't know is how close the cabin is to the highway & train track. I did not read far enough back to the reviews where that was mentioned, so it was quite a surprise when we drove up. The photos make it look more isolated than it actually is. One person who touched on it in their review said they kept the windows closed on that side of the house - well, that's not really practical when you are counting on the cool night air to keep the house cool for sleeping. I don't know if we were there at a busy train time, but all of us were awakened 2-3 times each night by noise from passing trains. And none of us are particularly light sleepers. Suffice it to say, the rail business is alive & well in Montana!
And there is noise from Highway 2 as well, though it's not quite as bad.

I'm not saying that I would NOT have stayed here because for the most part, the plusses outweigh this negative. It's a great cabin, well-equipped and beautifully decorated. The location is about the best you can get for visiting both sides of GNP. And it is a good value if you need 2 bedrooms - it was a lot cheaper than getting 2 hotel rooms, plus you have the kitchen which saves on eating out all the time. I just wish that I had known in advance about the train & traffic noise. Then I would have brought some ear plugs!

Owner's Response: Karen, Thank you for staying here at the cabin, I did find out that they were working on the tracks for the train and had a back up of the trains, so they were running more than usual at night. so sorry about that, I would have suggested closing the laundry room door to lessen the noise from the train and the highway. I would hope that the fans in the closet would've helped with that as well. Again, so sorry. We do have earplugs, since we attend quite a few of the NASCAR races! lol... Thank you again and hoping you all have a wonderful fall!
Sincerely,
Gary and Theresa STeffen

Magic in Montana

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our seven night stay in this cabin and the first words that came to my mind while starting to write this review was "Magic in Montana." Our stay was fantastic. We absolutely LOVED the cabin. It was fully stocked, clean, roomy and in an excellent location. Gary and Theresa were the "pixie dust" that created the Magic. They were wonderful hosts who accomodated our every need (from concierge services and huckleberry recipes to showing us how to work the TV remote). But more than that, they treated us like family and made the cabin really feel like our "home" - even if only for seven days. The area is a picturesque setting of unspeakable beauty and this cabin is perfectly located in the middle of it all. The lawn is kept so well, it literally looks like it could be par 3 hole on a golf course. The woods out back are full of hukckleberries and a gorgeous view of the river. Gary's warehouse facility in the back of the property is so clean and meticulously kept that I wanted to move a "tool" to see how long it took him to realize it was not in its place (my guess - not long). This acute attention to detail is also reflected in the cabin with authentic hunting and fishing items scattered throughout each room. The kids loved the loft. Beds were very comfortable. Laundry room was a nice "extra." Fire pit was "just what the doctor ordered" after returning from a long day of sightseeing and white water rafting. This was my first experience with VRBO and I can promise you I did ALOT of research and set the bar very high prior to deciding on this cabin. Without a doubt, Theresa and Gary delivered a first class experience. My family and I are grateful to have met them and and will cherish the memories we created. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Tom, Marisol and Girls,
Thank you so much for the kind words, and we too feel that we now have an extended family! We enjoyed the meals and stories we shared. it's funny that you mention "pixie dust" because Fairies are my favorite Magical Creature! We will definitely let you know when we are in your neck of the woods! Miss you all, and give our love and hugs to the girls and to Marisol, you are a gem!
Love you guys and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Soooo Accomodating

  • 5 of 5
My family was scheduled to be in Glacier this June however my husband had to have multiple emergency surgeries so we had to cancel our trip. Gary and Theresa were so kind to us, praying for us and even sent our deposit back when we had to cancel our reservation. After he recuperates, we can't wait to come visit them and meet them face-to-face! They are the best!

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5
Me, my husband, and son stayed in this cabin for 5 nights. All I can say is AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. We pull up and the owners have a fire going in the fire pit outside their cabin. They come over to greet us and from the moment we met them we felt like part of their family. The cabin is so warm and inviting, if it weren't for wanting to sight see, we probably never would have left the cabin at all. Gary and Theresa are absolutely the most amazing hosts we have ever encountered. From the wonderful basket of goodies and fresh flowers when we arrived.....to all the helpful information while we were there. There is not one negative thing I can say about our stay. Absolutely amazing cabin, hosts, and scenery. I can NOT WAIT to visit again!

Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Gary and Theresa's cabin and had such a wonderful time. Gary and Theresa are the perfect hosts and so generous with their time - even inviting us to their New Year's Eve party! When we left we felt like we were leaving old friends.

The cabin is perfect - beautifully decorated and built with such attention to detail. It was only the two of us so we had more than enough space but it would be perfect for a family of 4 or 5. The bathrooms are great and having a washer/dryer after a week of skiing at Big Sky was ideal. The kitchen is stocked with a ton of pots, pans, gadgets and utensils - we had everything we needed for a week of preparing meals.

The cabin is located halfway between East Glacier and West Glacier so it was a scenic drive of about 20 miles if we needed anything but we stocked-up on our way up from Bozeman so we didn't need anything. We spent a few days snow shoeing in GNP and then a day at Isaac Walton cross-country skiing which was really fun. Gary and Theresa's property backs up to the river and we snowshoe'd down to the edge of the proprety and soaked-into the view which was beautiful.

We will definitely stay here again.

Couldn't Ask For More!!

Couldn't Ask For More!!

My wife and two daughters stayed at Gary and Theresa's Cabin for our summer vacation and we couldn't have had a better time. Gary and Theresa are probably the most welcoming owner's we've ever encountered in our travel experience (this being the fourth time we've rented a vacation home). It started with a long flight/drive (that I miss-calculated by about 2 hours) and getting in much later than we had hoped arriving to a bon-fire with several of Gary and Theresa's friends. Now it wasn't overbearing by any sense but very welcoming. After getting settled a drink by the fire was a welcome end to our journey. During our stay Gary and Theresa were around but not too much so (they live in the cabin across the driveway). They were gone for a few days but we always had access to them if needed. They gave us great advice and tips that we used and found very helpful. I have zero doubt that if I needed something today and was in their area I could call them up and they would do whatever they could, they're just that kind of people that you wish there were more of in this world.

The cabin was tremendous. Everything you'd want in a rustic feeling but well maintained and modern cabin. It had everything we needed for our family. My wife and I are sticklers for cleanliness and this cabin easily surpassed our rigorous levels of satisfaction. We were very happy. The internet connect isn't the best but given our location that's not surprising.

The location was also ideal. In fact I'd say we lucked into a great situation. We weren't looking for a central location, but after visiting Glacier I don't think there is a better spot. It's about 20 minutes to the West spots and about 40-45 to the East spots (I'm talking about the actual sights not the gates). But if we would have stayed on one side or the other it would have made getting back and forth much more difficult. We were a few minutes west of a nice entrance to the river which made for a nice stroll on a few occasions.

The park itself is truly one of the greatest natural sites to see. If you've never been I can't encourage you more to take a trip. We didn't see as much wildlife as there is on our trip but the black bear scratches on the deck made for a great story! We did a helicopter tour just up the road and it was a great addition to the trip that I also highly recommend if possible.

My oldest daughter already is making plans to come back and rest assured the only place we'll stay is here!
