No better to place to stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is AMAZING!!! Our party of four adults stayed in mid August and could not have been happier!!! The house is gorgeous, clean with all the comforts of home. The location could not be better. Many of the properties for rent near west Glacier are right off a noisy highway, but not this one! It is tucked back off a quiet road(barely saw a car) on a beautiful, tranquil lake. The owners are so helpful and friendly with EVERYTHING! We had so much fun having evening dinners, kayaking and fishing on the property we really didn't want to even visit Glacier National Park. It is also close to Big Fork And Whitefish Montana which are two wonderful little towns to explore. The rest of the time we hiked and it was so nice to come back to this wonderful property!!!! Can't wait to return (believe us we will be back!!!)

We know that you would have liked to extend your stay, but we are so happy to hear that you would like to return. It would be wonderful to have you as guests again. Sincerely, Tom & Julie

Great Place for All Ages

  • 5 of 5

Tom did a great job accommodating our 3 generations of family. He answered all our questions and went out of his way to keep us up to date on the forest fires in Glacier Park.

We would go back in a heartbeat. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer and spend more time at this relaxing location.

The only negatives we could remotely come up with is that the basement hideabed was reported to be a bit uncomfortable for our newlywed couple. The place was so clean and perfect that we probably made an extra effort to leave it the way we found it because these owners obviously take great pride in a their truly lovely home.

Amazing home & location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for a "girls weekend/bachelorette party" for 12 women. The house is immaculate and wonderfully stocked with everything you need. The owners are nearby to help but not intrusive. Beds are so comfortable! The lake is nice and warm for swimming, even in June. We had a perfect time and Tom & Julie were great, even when our hen party got a little too loud. Thanks again!

The Shangri-La of the Glacier National Park area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I very rarely return to any vacation property, but we were so enthralled with the beauty, tranquility, and warm hospitality of the Lake Blaine Mtn Resort that we could think of nothing else but returning to the cabin we'd visited in summer 2012. Our return trip was even better than the first...mostly because we had the opportunity to stay longer and spend more quality relaxation time at this property than on our first visit. This is your ideal vacation property if you enjoy fishing, kayaking, quiet relaxation, and viewing wildlife, all while retaining all the comforts of home (and more). Nestled at the foot of a mountain and immediately adjacent to a creek, field, and lake, the cabin is simply perfect. A unique blend of lodge and contemporary home, it is perfectly appointed for whatever your vacation up the fresh trout you caught in the creek on the property; watching the sunset over the adjacent tranquil field with grazing deer, soaring eagles, waddling turkeys, and acrobatic swallows; or, kayaking on the creek. Add this to the fact that it is such a short and easy drive to the western entrance of Glacier National Park, and there is really nothing you could enjoy doing that isn't easily accessible. If you tire of outdoor pursuits, a visit to the quaint town of White Fish offers galleries, a large variety of restaurants, and a ski resort (if you are there during the skiing season).

As with the first stay, Tom and Julie (the owners) were devoted to making our stay exceed our expectations, but we were hard pressed to find any wants or needs that weren't already provided. They are the perfect hosts...ready and willing to help in any way, but perfectly adept at allowing guests their privacy and the making you feel as if the property were your own private hideaway.

My only regret is that we can't vacation there every year, but I know the draw of the place will pull us back again in a year or two.

Owner's Response: Jen and Mike, Holy Cow! We don't even know what to say to that wonderful review. We always want our guests to enjoy themselves as much as you did. We're glad your second visit lived up to your expectations. It's so gratifying to know how much you enjoyed it. Look forward to picking up where we left off. Sincerely, Tom & Julie

I must say the we have stayed in many vacation homes but this one surpasses all!!! The home is beautiful. The property is scenic and very inviting. Tom and Julie are great hosts and gave us a lot of info about the area. The home is well equipped with all you need. We flew in from Ohio and was limited with what we could bring and to our surprise the home had everything we needed. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and it was a great time. Anyone planning a trip to this area, do yourself a favor and check out these properties. Thanks Tom and Julie for a memorable stay. WE WELL RETURN!!!!

Ask for "House Rules" BINDER before renting this property

  • 1 of 5

Owners not helpful with concerns we expressed about their extra charge for cleaning after my wife and family double cleaned the floors and counter tops. Their "House Rules" Binder is absurd. I would NOT recommend this property to anyone who wants to have a hassle free and relaxing week on the lake. The area is a great area to vacation in but find a place where the owners will treat you with respect.

Owner's Response: Please know this is not typical. Most all our feedback we receive is very positive. We are sorry that it was necessary to charge for the additional cleaning as addressed in previous communications. Our priority is to provide a very clean and fresh environment for all guests. Before anyone books a reservation we send out our rental agreement for their review. It clearly states all of our terms & conditions prior to guests signing of the rental agreement. Upon arrival, the owners give an orientation and are always available. Respectfully, Tom and Julie
