Overview

West Glacier House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Experience the beauty of Montana in this newer 2700 square foot 4 bedroom/3.5 bath home with a modern style on 5 wooded acres with breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains at their finest. Spend time relaxing on the wrap around deck and take in the scenery of Spoon Lake and the Great Northern Mountain. A great natural lookout sits on this property, just take a few minutes to jaunt up the hill and capture an amazing panoramic view of the many Glacier National Park peaks. This home sits high on the mountain a few minutes north of Columbia Falls only three miles from access to the North Fork River and twelve miles to the west entrance to Glacier National Park. Spend a peaceful morning in the canoe on Spoon Lake watching and listening to the Loon and seeing the Eagles grabbing ducks and fish out of the water. No kidding! If you are interested in an easy and beautiful hike there is a trail just a little further down the road that goes over a creek and around most of Spoon Lake. Peak outside at anytime during the day and catch moose or deer trailing through the yard.

You can quickly get to Whitefish and spend the day at Whitefish Mountain Resort hiking, ziplining, mountain biking and much more. Spend the day shopping and end it with some fine dining. Glacier National Park is an all day adventure and only a 15 minute drive from the house. Take the kids to the water slide park in Columbia Falls or go to the Family Fun Center and race around on the go-carts. If you are still up for even more fun go on a guided float down the scenic North Fork River and learn to fly-fish. Visit the Hungry Horse Dam and learn it's history. You can spend the morning picking huckleberry's on the property and bake yourself a pie! Huckleberry's can be hard to come by but not here. There is so much to do it's hard to list it all. End your day at the fire pit and breathe some fresh Montana air!

Last season I was very honored and excited to welcome Brett Farve and his family to stay at the home. They were very complimentary of their stay and even signed a few footballs for friends and family!

About Shannon

I own a hair and photo studio in Whitefish and have lived in Montana for 16 years. I enjoy hiking and sightseeing with my son. I have a passion for my career. I have built and designed three homes in the area, lodge style, contemporary, and modern.

Shannon purchased this house in 2007

Why Shannon chose West Glacier

I chose the location for this home because of its wilderness environment and spectacular views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time!! Thanks so much for offering the home. It was perfect---clean, plenty of space, all of the amenities of home, only 15-20 minutes from Glacier NP--we even cooked out on the grill down near the fire pit. It made for a great vacation! Wish we could have stayed longer. If, no, WHEN we return to the area, we will certainly stay there again!!

Montana Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome vacation home, up on a hill, with beautiful views! We spent 5 nights in this great home in July and can't wait to return here again. Stayed here with 3 adults and 4 teenagers and had plenty of room to spread out. There is great outdoor space on the deck/balcony. We loved building a fire by the firepit and watching the stars come out. Only a short 15 minute drive to West Glacier and GNP. Thanks to Alyssa who helped us out in many ways---overall a great home and a great experience with renting. When we return to Montana, we will definitely look her first!!!

The house was awesome! Very clean and comfortable. The views are amazing and so close to the park. We had a full house and everyone had a great time. Best memory is sitting around the fire pit enjoying family!

Summer 2014

  • 3 of 5
We enjoyed the house except the fact that the house had no window treatments in the bedrooms which meant we could see into each others rooms and the moon and the sun lit up the rooms late at night and early in the morning. If you are there in the summer ask for floor fans because the house gets warm.

Trip to Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely home form August 1-8, 2014. The first floor, elevated deck is great. We espeicially liked the view from the master bedroom and the deck off the bedroom. The uncovered windows and sliding glass door to the deck brought in natural light and fresh air-- it was a stunning view to wake up to every morning. The view and atmosphere of fresh air and sunshine felt like we were (deluxe) camping but with all the comforts of home and real bed. My first day back to my real home, I woke up thinking I was going to see the view of mountains when I opened my eyes, as it was still so fresh in my mind. But then i realized I was back home and back to reality, which was difficult.
We did alot of traveling and activities in Glacier so we didn't get to enjoy the home as much as we would have liked to, but it was nice to come home to the comforts of a house instead of a hotel room after hiking all day. We also did horseback riding; rafting with dinner through Montana Raft (highly recommend -- dinner was excellent and well worth it. We had the salmon.) There is a lot of driving involved (790 miles in a week!) since the park is so spread out, and this makes for a long day and we got home very late every night. I would recommend getting up early to drive through the park and exploring the east side. You are missing a great deal if you only stay on the west. But would also recommend some relaxation in between hike days. Dont make the mistake of trying to do it all! We rented kayaks and paddle boards at Apgar on MacDonald lake, which was very nice. Would also recommend a tirp to Polebridge (use the park road) to the Northern Lights Saloon for dinner. Awesome dinner (the trout) and a place that takes you back in time. It is an experience and an adventure.
Overall, the house was very nice, very clean (which is top priority for me.) We could not figure out why the TV would not come on, but I didn't think we needed TV anyway. So i waited until later in the week to call the owner about it. He kindly came and remedied the situation while we were out and about. And when we got home, the TV was on. Very responsive.
Regrets: I wish I had spent more time in the hammock. But I did get to use the swing!

Beautiful property, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The property is beautiful and very peaceful. As advertised. Security deposit returned promptly and all questions answered quickly during the reservation process and during the stay! There were nine of us and we fit comfortably. Plenty of room for the 5 teenagers and 4 adults to spread out inside, on the deck, by the fire pit, and on the hammock. West entrance to Glacier is about 35 minutes which we knew when we rented. Highly recommend obstacle/high ropes course at Whitefish. The kids loved it and some did it 2x during our trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sally for such a nice review! I have to apologize regarding the travel time to Glacier. There are normally directions at the house to take Blankenship Rd, which is a short-cut from North Fork Rd. to West Glacier, but those must have been misplaced. I will make sure to have those directions available for future guests.

Modern, City Style in the Woods

  • 4 of 5
We were 2 families (8 people total) with 4 children ranging in age from 3yo-10yo. The home is incredibly "modern" with high-end touches everywhere. Plenty of space for all of us to stay with 3 bedrooms containing Full size or Larger beds and one 1st floor room with 2 bunk beds good for all 4 kids. The modern flavor of the decor felt a bit out of place in the Montana woods and some of the electrical items were not working (fans in bedrooms were non-functional - which made for 2 very warm nights). Not a good property for people who have arthritis (lots of stairs and modern cabinet pulls make it challenging to open kitchen cabinets).That being said, the property manager was superb and helpful. She included a bit of fishing equipment, toys for the kids, and board games galore. Spoon lake is nearby with access to a canoe. A very beautiful setting overall with quite comfortable accommodations. This is less of a "family" place and more of a place for city couples getting away to partial seclusion in Montana's beauty.
