About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Moose Hollow is a fully furnished one-bedroom apartment plus loft located near Glacier National Park and the North Fork of the Flathead River. Amenities include washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen including microwave and coffee maker, satellite TV, dvd player, large book library and wireless internet. This 'cabin like' apartment is nestled just off the North Fork Road, on Moose Lane, in a quiet wooded setting. Located 8 miles north of Columbia Falls and 8 miles from West Glacier, the west entrance to Glacier National Park, you are only MINUTES from the Flathead River. The Blankenship Road is one mile north and provides a back road short cut to West Glacier.

The location is perfect for a family base-camp while visiting Glacier National Park, a friends fishing adventure, or just a quiet retreat for a couple(s). Across from Moose Hollow is Bailey Lake, ideal for swimming, fishing or boating. The public beach access is only a short walk from the apartment.

Moose Hollow sleeps 2-4 very comfortably with a queen size bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the upper loft. The kitchen is equipped with everything a home would need to make a delicious home cooked meal and dishwasher makes for easy clean up. The washer/dryer also make longer vacations more inviting as you will want to explore the multitude of outdoor activities this area has to offer.

Moose Hollow on Glacier's North Fork
average rating of 4.96875 based on 52 reviews

I could live there. Such a quiet, relaxing place.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and convenient to Glacier, Whitefish and Kalispell. Close to good Smith's grocery store in Columbia Falls, so getting sundries on your way to or from a day in GNP is easy.

If you have an all-wheel drive vehicle, you can even drive north along the North Fork Rd. to reach Camas Rd. entry into GNP. It's about the same distance as taking city and highway route to West Glacier.

So great to have really nice laundry facilities inside, too. Katie and Karsten have really done a terrific job on this place.

A great get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

What a great way to start our Glacier National Park Trip. They are just about 20 minutes from the park entrance away from all the tourist traps and other hustle and bustle of the area. The place is very clean and spacious, but even better are the Hosts. They made our family feel completely welcome and their son was so nice to our 2 boys. We will defiantly book here again when we come back. We have already started saving airline miles for out next trip.

My husband and I spent three nights here, July 28-30. It was just perfect. We stayed on the East side of Glacier for three nights before that, in a rustic cabin. It was very nice to have some luxury again! We utilized the washer/dryer, which was so nice after all the hiking we did. The first night, we went to Columbia Falls (10 minute drive) to pick up pizza-very good. I can't think of the name, but Karsten and Katie gave us the recommendation. We were gone all day the next two days, exploring the West side of Glacier, which is maybe 10-15 drive. We ate our breakfast on the deck before we left, taking in nature's wonders. I would definitely recommend this place to other couples/families. It has everything you need (including can koozies for our beer and ponytail holders for my hair!) and is the perfect spot to end a day of hiking in beautiful Glacier National Park.

Thanks Karsten and Katie, can't wait to come back! :)

Also....great BBQ place-Oso's Smokin' BBQ, located in the Tamarack Lodge, on HWY 2. Excellent.

I Would LOVE to Live There

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Moose Hollow was more than we expected. The comfort and amenities provided were outstanding. From the covered porch that we enjoyed using to enjoy the weather and meals, to the very comfortable bed and pillows. Karsten & Katie have maintained this place as I would have. The internet and satellite service were well appreciated. Having the washer and dryer available to us within the unit was bonus, and allowed us the reduce the amount of clothing we had to pack. We returned hungry and tired from a day hiking in the Glacier National Park, and enjoyed using the grill to cook upon. Having a location so close to Glacier National Park (20-minutes) allowed easy access for us, as well as being just a few miles from a grocery store for those items that we seemingly tend to forget when we go on a trip. The unit has an instant hot water heater that always ensures hot water is available. It even has a dish washer!

I would recommend this for a couple with up to 4 children, as there is a queen bed, 2 twin beds in the loft, and a couch that folds out as a sleeper.

I would easily stay there next week if I was in the area so soon.

5+ of 5 for this place!

Beautiful cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin tucked away in the wood. It had everything we needed and nothing we didnt. It was simple and clean with a cozy furnace we liked to gather by. The only thing I would caution is to anyone who NEEDS WiFi access or cell phone service, both were pretty spotty in the woods. Personally, I loved being un-plugged.

A truly wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Karsten and Katie,

Thanks for making this such a wonderful stay - one of the highlights our trip around the North West. You gave us such a warm welcome and your recommendations for local trips and directions were so helpful. The accommodation was beautifully located - both geographically for Glacier and in a gorgeous setting - and very well equipped. We had everything we needed for a great three days.

We would hotly recommend the rental in itself and as a great jump-off for Glacier. We'd waited years to go there so all the more satisfying!

Thanks again!
