I learned to skii and love the snow and adventures in Montana, 1970s. I'm an avid hiker, cross-country skiier, snowshoer, traveler. The trees, animals, mountains, rivers are my guardian. I have lived in 18 countries teaching English as a Second Language, Speech Therapy. I have a daughter who is horse crazy, a whitewater raft guide, and an artist of wire and water color.

We very much enjoyed Penny and her house.
We had everything we needed and more. Very much enjoyed Penny's expertise re the area and will definitely stay again if we're back at Glacier
I do so enjoy my guests. I learn so much from them about new activities, restaurants, places to go. And....love to hear of their adventures in other places.
Great time in Glacier!
We had such a great time visiting Glacier National Park and staying at this beautiful cabin made it even more special. The cabin is only 20 minutes from the west entrance to the park, so we had no problem getting there early to hike. The cabin is cozy, yet spacious enough for families. The gardens surrounding the cabin are beautiful and Penny, the owner, is so friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this cabin to our friends and would stay there again.
I do enjoy all the guests that grace my place; I learn wonderful new perspectives from each group. And the kids, love their enthusiasm. I'm just lucky lucky to have the location.
Love this gem!
Had a great stay at Penny's cabin. About midway between both park entrances so a great location. We enjoyed hiking the trails and then coming back to enjoy the beautiful flowers, hummingbirds, rabbits, squirrels, and birds galore! Thanks so sharing your little piece of heaven.
I'm so glad when guests can relax into nature enjoying the antics of the creatures about them. And the guests recognize the convenience of location, between the two entrances. Glacier Park and its Canadian counterpart, Waterton Lakes National Park, just became the world’s first transboundary international dark sky park, 2017. It's really dark here, so amazing to view the gigantic Milky Way above you.
Perfect Cabin Home in Perfect Setting!
Beautiful, cozy and we enjoyed every single minute of our time there.
A wedding party! Great to have the groom's family find the House suitable for their functions and preparations. I was tickled to see all the activity and happiness. Thank you for being here.
Our family enjoyed our stay thoroughly! Perfect location to explore Glacier National Park. The home was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. And The owner was very gracious and helpful!!
I guess I'm lucky to be in such a great location to access both sides of the park. Great folks need restful places to relax, enjoy all party members. So good to notice this in families that come and stay. Thanks for being in my life.
A great place to stay, closer to the park and then Rivers for tons of fun options!
We had an excellent time at My Glacier House! Penny is great to work with and is a wealth of knowledge about the local area. We enjoyed four days on the river, kayaking, rafting, and paddle boarding! Thank you Penny for proving a wonderful stay for our great Glacier trip! We will be back!
So important to me to have satisfied happy guests. I try very hard to have everything ready and working.
