Great place to see all the sights of Glacier National Park. You are centrally located for both sides of the Park and we enjoyed the East side due to less visitors. We were able to have Capri and Shawn provide us the day ride on horses into the wilderness area. Beautiful scenery. Was able to watch them practice for an upcoming rodeo and our daughter was able to help with the horses. Friendly dogs which greet and welcome you. Very knowledgeable of the entire area and my brother from Cutbank enjoyed common friendships. We used the bunk house and main cabin. Great sleeping and restful. The buildings are off the main highway 2 and is quiet, surrounded by trees. Enjoyed waking up to the horses sounds. Enjoyed watching the trains from the cabin and did not even hear them at night. Sad moment when we knew that we had to pack up and leave after 7 days. Learned how to fly fish in the stream (Bear Creek) on their property, even caught some. The single bathroom, we learned to work around and got a schedule that worked for all. Friendly people who wanted our stay to be memorable. Thank you for all your extra efforts Capri and Shawn.
We stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed every minute! The stream was great for swimming our dog, and the guys loved the fishing! East Glacier entrance is about 1/2 hour but distances are unavoidable out here. We devoted week to east of park and had a great time. Watched wildlife on mountain across from porch. Got to watch calf roping practice and barrel riding practice on the property. Good little cafe/ bar is walking distance. No washer/ dryer but we hand washed our stuff and they dried in 2 hours in the dry Montana breeze- laundry just a mile or so away though.
No cell service and slow wifi but we enjoyed that! DVD player was nice to have but mostly we were tired from hikes, fishing and sightseeing. Would definitely return!
I was nervous coming here, but as soon as I drove up.. I fell in love with the property. The horses, the mountains, the cabins. The pictures provided here doesn't do its justice. Great price, too. They were friendly, invited us to a rodeo, and were good company. I loved that they had good dogs, too. They made sure we were comfortable and attended to our every need.
My group of 12 loved staying here, but with the one bathroom.. it was a bit frustrating BUT we got by just fine. They do have a clean outback bathroom also. Inside of the cabin was better than we thought. It has a downstairs to where all the beds are. It's great. We all highly recommend staying here.
This cabin located on the southern side of Glacier National Park was the perfect property for my wife and I. The description and pictures are great, but they do not really capture how pristine and warm this cabin really is. The owners have put a tremendous amount of work into making this location a true home away from home. The owners and their daughter have several horses, a few goats, and a couple of dogs and while it might seem that this many animals might be bothersome to people staying in the cabin, we never once was bothered! In fact, we enjoyed watching the family work with the animals, especially with the horses as they prepared for the rodeo. As for location, my wife and I both felt that this location was perfect. The grandiose scope of Glacier NP to the north and Flathead NF to the south makes driving to your sightseeing destinations an inevitable truth. However, you will NOT find a more central location than Snowy Springs. It is a mere 20 minutes to East Glacier Village where you will find quaint cafes, the lodge, shopping, and other services. A little over an hour north on Looking Glass Road (very scenic!) will put you into the St. Mary Lake area and Many Glacier Hotel. A faster option is to travel down Rt.2 to Browning and zip up 494 to 89. Less than an hour. To get to West Glacier entrance you only need to set aside 35 mins down Rt.2 and you are there. Beautiful drive. Either start at the West Glacier or St. Mary Lake entrance and you will be on the magnificent Going-to-the-Sun Road. This is the heart of the park. For those looking at shopping and more "tourist" fare, you can continue west past West Glacier a short 20 mins to Columbia Falls and another 15 mins to Whitefish for amazing shopping and eating. The owners of this property, Shawn and Capri, are both experts to the area and are very capable to help visitors plan an amazing trip. Capri helped my wife and I (we are avid hikers) plan several trails that would be up our alley and they were great! They can also outfit just about any other type of trip whether it be sightseeing or hunting. I would recommend this property to anyone! In fact, I have a few family members that are interested in traveling west and this is at the top of their lists. My wife and I are already planning our next trip to Snowy Springs. If you are fortunate enough to work with Shawn and Capri, you will not be disappointed.
My girlfriend and I stayed in late June, and we had a great time. The cabin feels very warm and inviting with light streaming in, bouncing off light-colored wood to create a vibrant glow, even on a rainy day. Here’s a breakdown:
The cabin has 2 floors. The main floor houses the kitchen, bathroom, a dining area, and a living room. The living room is spacious and would easily accommodate a family or a couple of sprawlers, like me and the lady. And I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned the sweet gas grill they have out front. There’s a fireplace for those cool mornings or late evenings, which is great for smores. The couch is a great place to read and relax. Oh and there’s a hammock outside. The whole porch set-up is pretty awesome. You start with a wood pile on your right, move left to a grill, pass a little seating area with some chairs, and then you hit the hammock and a couple of neighing horses. The lower floor features the bedroom and various beds and bunkbeds, which is nice and cool in the summer. It’s simple compared to the main floor but nice and roomy.
Initially I thought that the location of the cabin would be a hindrance because it’s 20 miles from the nearest entrance to the park, but I found it to be the perfect location. It turned out that the lakes and mountains in East Glacier/St Mary/Two Medicine were just as spectacular as anything on the other side of the park, with only the slightest taste of tourism. If you want the ability to visit both sides of the park easily without having to take the Going-on-the-Sun Road every time (you’ll see what I mean when you drive the road, which is spectacular but congested), stay in this sweet cabin.
The cabin sits on a working ranch, where you can sit back and watch horses go about their daily lives and occasionally graze by your front step. It’s not the kind of place where you take part in the ranch, but there are animals everywhere, and they’re friendly and welcome to a pat on the nose. While there, a goat got its head stuck in a fence 4 times, and I freed him with my city-folk hands. Felt like a hero.
For anyone who likes trains, which I did as a kid, you will love this cabin. You hear the faint sounds of the train gain volume as it pumps up the mountain, and then the locomotive bursts through the trees on the mountain above. You feel like the little plastic guy in one of those mountain train scenes, which makes the surrounding ranch even cooler.
Mountain cabin on 90 acre working outfitter base camp. Glacier National park is your backyard, the Great Bear Wilderness is your front yard. Trails, Trails, Trails, for hiking, horseback riding, or mountain biking. Bring your own horse or go on a guided day ride with the outfitter.
If your a winter person these trails are great for cross country skiing & snowmobiling. One of the few places you can walk out the door and get on your snow mobile, no hauling required!
