ABBOT CREEK COTTAGE, ONLY 12 MIN FROM GLACIER NATIONAL PARK!

Martin City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 - 4)

This quaint cottage is a cozy place to base your next vacation. Come for a rejuvenating, UNPLUGGED getaway. Lovely 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 comfortably only 12 minutes from Glacier National Park.

This updated home has slate floors in the entryway, solid wood floors in the kitchen, and original wood floors in the living room. The living room has a gas fireplace to take the chill out of the cool evenings. A large covered patio overlooks Abbot Creek and is the perfect place to wind down or 'wine' down after a day of sightseeing in Glacier Park or hiking, climbing, fishing or even shopping in Whitefish, Bigfork or Kalispell.

The Cottage has private off-street parking large enough to park a boat and trailer for use on the many area lakes.

The property has 70 feet of beautiful Abbot Creek running along its southern border. Abbot Creek is a year-round babbling mountain stream that can soothe your stress and rejuvenate your soul.

This home sits on the original homestead property and belonged to the owner's Great Aunt who was the daughter of the original homesteaders of Martin City. Martin City is the small town nearest the property. The owner's Father helped set the first turbine in the historic Hungry Horse Dam which is nearby.

Enjoy a scenic 12-minute drive to Glacier National Park; the Flathead river is a short hike from the cottage. Whitefish, Kalispell, and Columbia Falls are all within a 15-40 minute drive.

Amenities include:

2 bedrooms with queen beds

Bathroom with full tub shower

Wood stove in the living room

Private yard with fire ring

70 feet of Abbot Creek frontage

Large outdoor covered patio

Fruit trees - Small garden

Abbott Creek Cottage belonged to my great Aunt Rose, the daughter of some of the original homesteaders inside the Canyon. It sits on part of the original homestead. The Cottage has been updated many times but the living room is the original cabin.

My father set the first turbine in Hungry Horse Dam just 3 miles from the Cottage. As a little girl my brothers and sisters and I would fish in Abbott Creek and sail our paper boats on feast days... Many a summer afternoon was spent walking the Creek to the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and picnicking along the way! A rough trek by any standards!

I was raised in Martin City, one of twelve siblings! My parents owned a grocery store, meat market and lockers near mile marker #144! The new highway took our home and store.

Great cabin, mixed thoughts on location

  • 4 of 5
This spot had many many positives and only one negative.

First the positives: the cabin was lovely, well taken-care-of, comfortable beds, functional well-equipped kitchen, easy laundry, clean, updated, absolutely nothing wrong with it. The owners were very nice, very easy to work with. We lost our keys hiking, felt terrible about it, and they dropped off some new keys within an hour or so. The location is very convenient to Glacier, just 10-15 minutes from the entrance. There's a nice fire pit outside that we used to roast some marshmallows and hot dogs. There's a little creek on the property but you can't see it very well due to brushy overgrowth on the embankment.

Now the one negative: the noise from the nearby road is really terrible. There's a nice tree barrier for the view but it does nothing for the noise. For us it ruined the experience of being out in the countryside, it was really intrusive. Not too bad at night trying to sleep as the traffic dies down and the house is well-insulated, but we couldn't open the windows or enjoy spending time outside. Because of this, I probably wouldn't return, but I may be too picky about traffic noise! If this doesn't bother you, I'd recommend this place with absolutely no other reservations!

Pictures do not do the cottage justice! Can't say enough good things about this place! Two beautiful bedrooms, cozy yet spacious living room, huge well stocked kitchen with nice eating area, big bathroom with cabinet for personal storage, convenient entry/laundry area, fantastic patio with grill! Nicely decorated cottage with homey touches. Wonderful attention to our needs: we mentioned our future daughter-in-law was joining us for a few days and the owners went above and beyond and bought an air mattress for her to sleep on. Although close to Highway 2 , it is buffered by a grove of trees and was actually a very quiet, secluded place. An easy twelve minute drive to West Glacier in one direction and a five minute drive to the grocery store in the other. This was a great place to return to after a long day of hiking in Glacier, with a beautiful tv and woodstove in the living room to help us unwind Would recommend this place to everyone and would definitely stay here again!
