What makes this cabin unique

Eventhough this is a studio, its much larger than a studio. There is a sitting area to watch Movies. A nice porch with two chairs. A little firepit to roast marshmellows.

Cozy and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 11th anniversary. The cabin is great for two people and provides seclusion and privacy from the rest of the property. The location is prime for easy access to West Glacier entrance. The Internet access is spotty in the cabin but sometimes it's nice to be completely removed from everything. We would definitely stay here again.

Great little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently took a weekend trip to cross country ski in Glacier National Park. Amy's cabin in Martin City was the perfect place to stay! It was close to the park and easy to get to while still feeling secluded. The cabin is a perfect peaceful hideaway for two, and very thoughtfully laid out. It was clean, welcoming, and altogether charming. We especially enjoyed the record player and the old John Prine record we found! The whole trip was awesome. We would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for a cozy base camp for GNP.

Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very enjoyable honeymoon at this cabin. It was big enough for the two of us and gave us easy access to hiking in Glacier NP and groceries, etc in town. Amy was great to work with and we loved the economical price!

Good Deal & Location

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is very cozy-- I would describe it as a "studio." For just my husband and I this wasn't an issue, but it did seem smaller in person than the pictures suggested online. We really didn't mind, but some might. It's in a prime location if you're planning on going into Glacier Park during your stay. It's a short direct route to either GNP or Whitefish depending on which direction you head. Unfortunately for us, the weather was less than satisfactory so we were unable to do as much outdoor fun as we had planned. This put a huge damper on our plans. That being said, some of these things I'll list probably wouldn't have been such a big deal had we been able to actually enjoy the outdoors... It rained from the night we arrived (Friday, Sept 4) until Tuesday. We were holed up in the cabin a lot of that time because part of the park was closed due to snow/icy conditions. We found it incredibly boring being stuck inside. The DVD collection didn't have anything to offer other than movies we had never heard of and TV series that started with season 3. The WiFi was incredibly spotty, to the point where we couldn't both be on our phones at the same time and Facebook wouldn't even load pictures. I believe this has something to do with the placement of the router, possibly being up at the main house. We couldn't find one in the cabin to try and reset so I don't think it was in there, I think it was a few hundred feet away, which would explain the terrible service. Netflix was out of the question. There wasn't any cable, which I knew ahead of time and was fine with, but without Netflix, any realistic DVDs or reliable WiFi we started to twiddle our thumbs. You can only play Scrabble so many times... So we drove to Walmart and bought the Godfather Complete Collection for $30 and that's how we passed our rainy evenings. FYI, you can rent movies right down the road at the supermarket (it's like 2-3 miles away heading toward Whitefish). We found this out after the fact, of course. All that being said, the actual cabin was very nice. It was lacking some basic amenities like condiments which would have been nice not have to buy just to leave behind a few days later, but whatever. We made due (and now the next few renters won't have to purchase ketchup...) I'm quite certain the experience would have been drastically different if the weather had cooperated but alas, it did not. Oh well, we couldn't have gotten a better deal and the location was convenient.

One Can't Find a Better/More Economical Place Near GNP to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay for a couple with one or two young children or "seniors" like us, or even middle age couples too!! This is my second time staying in one of Amy's properties. Last year I stayed in the large/very accommodating house with six other "senior" guy hikers and this time in the cabin which was great for my wife and I to stay in outside GNP for the four nights we day hiked the trails. There was one snag with the TV not working, but after a brief adjustment both my wife and I found this inconvenience to be quite nice too!! The owner couldn't have been more cordial with her warm, friendly service to us!! If you are looking for an outside mountain view off of your front porch, this isn't the place for you. BUT if you are looking for an exceptionally clean, fresh, totally furnished for all your needs (except doing laundry) this place is prime to consider! Oh crap! Now with this recommendation it probably won't be available the next time I want to return!!

Cozy Cabin in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Amy's cabin. It was exactly what we wanted: a small kitchen stocked with the necessary tools, a bathroom, and a bed to rest our weary heads on after full days of hiking. The cabin was clean, spacious, and perfectly located 15 minutes outside the west entrance to Glacier National Park. Amy could not have been more helpful or more accommodating than she was. She made sure we had everything we needed, advised us on the best hikes, and was a cheerful resource for the area. I would HIGHLY recommend her cabin to anyone looking for a pleasant, quiet place to stay in the area.
