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!

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!!
  • 5 of 5
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!

BEYOND PERFECT...

  • 5 of 5
Could not have wished for a more perfect place to celebrate our first anniversary...the cabin is so comfortable and well appointed...you lack for nothing. We loved the location directly between the park entrances and the cabin grounds are spectacular...Gary and Theresa are perfect hosts - they are there when you need them and give you space to be alone as well. We loved it so much we are planning our return trip for August and would not want to stay anywhere else..if you are looking for a really wonderful place to be secluded yet very welcome and comfortable, could not recommend any place more highly! Not having cell service was a bonus for us and really allowed us to reconnect and enjoy the beauty of life together in amazing surroundings....would absolutely recommend without hesitation.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I can't say too much about how nice this rental was. Theresa & Gary were so welcoming. They thought of everything from soaps to spices & everything in between. The rental exceeded my expectations from a welcome basket & flowers to a loaf of homemade bread. The property is right between East & West Glacier, so everything is easy to reach. I would definetly stay here again & hope I will be able to sometime.
