Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-8)
2BR, 1BA cottage situated in the small town of Coram about five miles from the west entrance of Glacier National Park. Great base camp to relax and recuperate after a great day in Glacier Park . Expect a clean, comfortable home with nice beds and linens. There is a top of the line big screen TV with cable and high speed internet. This cottage is convenient to Glacier View Golf Course that borders Glacier Park with panoramic mountain views. There also are many great courses near by in the Flathead Valley, shopping in the towns of Columbia Falls, Whitefish and Kalispell, fishing on the Middle Fork or North Fork of the Flathead River and white water rafting. Horse back riding, guided hiking and fishing trips available. Fun for kids with a maze and bumper boat park very close. There is a great water slide waterpark about eight miles away.
The Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad runs by the towns of Coram and West Glacier, so railroad buffs will be fascinated but others may not like the railroad sounds. Coram Cottage is in the same canyon as all West Glacier area housing so everyone is aware of the railroad to some extent.
This cottage is also a great base camp for hiking and fishing the Flathead National Forest.
This is a very nice and economical home in a safe area for a family vacation, girls getaway, wilderness hiking and outdoor adventures.

About John Glader
I am a 63 year old retired building contractor that has lived in the area for over 40 years. I love to fish, hunt, golf, and play hockey, so that keeps me very busy and out of trouble. However, I am of nordic descent so of course not being in trouble is a challenge. Born in Minnesota I moved here at 20 because it has everything I grew up with and much more!
John Glader purchased this Cottage in 1985
Why John Glader chose Coram
I felt people needed a clean, comfortable , kid friendly, pet friendly and affordable place to enjoy Glacier Park and surrounding area without that plastic motel atmosphere.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sightseeing, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and souvenir shopping all in close proximity. Walking distance to excellent restaurants, and other ascential services. Ten minute drive to the west entrance of Glacier National Park.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Give Me Another Shot at Glacier
The “weather gods”impacted our initial visit to GNP with fires - for several weeks prior to, and snow the day of, our arrival. Between the two, only 7 miles of the Going to the Sun Road was open - and this from the east side. But we managed to see several gorgeous lakes, trails, and mountain vistas.
Our stay was much nicer. The house has an excellent location, just 6-7 miles from the west entrance. Although it is an older property it was quite comfortable. Plenty of space for spreading ou and relaxing, a well equipped kitchen, TV with probably a couple of hundred channels. And John, the owner was available to answer questions,
A potential concern for light sleepers is it is located within earshot of train tracks and there are several trains passing through daily. This was not an issue for us, it could be for others.
If we have the opportunity to re-visit GNP , we would certainly stay here again.
Needs updating on outside
The home was fairly nice on the inside and served us well. The outside is run down and needs updating. The picture is very deceiving.
Perfect getaway stay
We brought friends from Australia to hike trails in Glacier National Park. This house was perfect for two couples and the kitchen had everything you needed to prep and cook meals. The location was excellent for access to the park which made the drive back from a long hike easy. We would stay here again.
Great location for GNP!
The location was perfect for all of our plans on the west side of GNP. The house is not fancy, but was clean and more than met our needs. We spent long days in the park hiking and exploring, so typically came home late to make and eat a quick dinner (never even turned on the tv) and head to bed. Beds were comfy, there were plenty of clean towels, the washer and dryer worked well, as did the wifi, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes/pots/pans/etc for the meals we made (again, focus was on hiking not gourmet meal prep). The trains didn't bother us (we had ear plugs with but didn't use them), although the tracks are fairly close, so if you're a light sleeper it might bother you. John was great about responding to questions! Overall it was a good stay, and we'd recommend it!
Perfect location at a great price!
We stumbled upon this rental while searching for a "base camp" during our first-ever trip to Glacier. The location of this house was just what we needed! So close to the park & other amenities. Well-kept and plenty of room for the 6 of us who stayed there. We loved the large dining room table and comfortable living room for spending time together. The large yard & cozy deck with a grill were a perfect place to relax after our long days in the park. As was mentioned in other reviews, there is no AC in the house but we left the windows open during the cool evening hours & the large trees shaded the house during the day. We ran the available box fans at night for circulation (and it provided "white noise" so we didn't hear the trains). We'd definitely stay again.
Ideal location for Glacier
Overall it was a great house to be in and very accommodating for the amenities and the location. The outside does look a bit tired but the inside was great for all 6 of us, 4 adults and two kids. A few things to note: the train is not just a 'noise' but rather close to a crossing and so there is plenty of whistling throughout the night but you get used to it rather quickly. The rooster is most annoying but if you are an early-riser like he is then you have nothing to worry about.
John was great to work with and answered all of our questions in a very timely manner and was always happy to help.
