East Glacier Park House Rental Photos and Description
New and Adorable. This charming location and very attractive house are one and a half miles west of town on a 20 acre property in the Glacier Acres Development. It is nestled on a pine forested hillside with views from the second floor deck of the spectacular Glacier Park Rocky Mountain Front. This is a comfortable and cozy house with lots of big windows, giving you the feeling that it is naturally connected with the wilderness all around. There are two beautifully furnished bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and one a master bedroom with a king bed and a sliding glass door going out onto the second floor balcony. Some visitors have enjoyed lounging on the deck furniture, sipping their morning coffee, while watching wildlife and listening to all of nature. The full bath with a tub/shower combination is also upstairs, the half bath is downstairs. The living room with its vaulted ceiling and unique furniture and decorations has a queen hide-a-bed couch, large flat screen satellite TV with DVD player and large selection of videos. The complete kitchen has everything including a breakfast bar and dining room table. Other highlights are the stack-able washer and dryer, plush beds and bedding, flat screen TVs in each bedroom, artistic log railing going upstairs and a view out the upstairs windows of the forest floor. There are two decks on the first floor, one with a barbeque. Linens are included and a free continental breakfast.
For hikers and nature lovers, casual or serious, just walk out your front door. Wildlife is all around, elk, deer, moose, abundant birds and small animals. A short climb to the top of the ridge behind the house earns a beautiful panoramic view of Glacier Park, the town of East Glacier Park and the foothills rolling out onto the prairie. Walk a little farther and you're in the defacto wilderness of the Badger Two Medicine area of the Lewis and Clark National Forest.
One mile away are the restaurants, shops, golfing, hiking trails, bus tours, horse riding, car rentals, Amtrak Station, churches, library and all other services in the town of East Glacier Park. East Glacier Park is the gateway town to the spectacular east side of Glacier National Park, where a full range of recreational opportunities await. Short rides will take you to magnificent scenery, wildlife viewing, boat rides on mountain lakes, hiking trails, picnic areas, sunsets, sunrises and alpenglow in the Two Medicine, St. Mary's and Many Glacier Valleys. Going to the Sun Highway, one of the most famous roads in the world, follows up St. Mary's Valley, over the Continental Divide surrounded by breathtaking vistas of snow capped peaks, mountain glaciers, circ lakes and the Garden Wall. Grizzly bears, mountain goats, mountain sheep, elk and moose are commonly seen right from the road.
The Park offers guided nature walks and evening programs at many locations. Lots of restaurants, shopping, information centers and other services are available all along the way. At the end of your day relax on your deck in the cool fresh mountain air. Nightlife can be found in town for those so inclined....House sleeps a maximum of six.

About Desarae or Randy
Our dream is to build four houses, one for each of our children's families and then one on top of the ridge for us. This is the first of our dream houses to be completed and we call it 'Baby Bear One.'
I came to East Glacier Park for the first time in 1986 with my two sons, 5 and 7 years old. I waited tables at 'Luna's Restaurant' which used to be called 'The Thimbleberry' and at the Summit Station on Marias Pass. We hiked and played all over the Park by day and I waited tables by night. Every year I returned to Detroit until I graduated with my teaching degree. My dream has now become my husband's dream too and our passion. We planned 'Baby Bear One' for two years and now that it has become a reality we are working on the second one.
We are excited to share this beautiful place with our 7 kids, family and friends. We hope you have a wonderful time here full of inspiration, fun and adventure and we hope you enjoy 'Baby Bear One' as much as we do.
