Glacier Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 - 4), well stocked kitchen, large dining.

This quaint cottage is a cozy base for your next Glacier Park vacation. Come for a rejuvenating, getaway. Lovely 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 comfortably. 10 minutes from West Glacier National Park and 15 minutes from Hungry Horse Reservoir.

This updated cottage has slate floors in the entryway, solid wood floors in the kitchen, and original wood floors in the living room. The living room has a gas fireplace to take the chill out of the cool evenings. A large covered patio offers glimpses of Abbot Creek and is the perfect place to 'wine' down after a day of sightseeing in Glacier Park, hiking, climbing, fishing or visiting Hungry Horse Dam a short 5 miles from the Cottage. You may even spend a day shopping in Whitefish, Kalispell, or attend a play at the Bigfork Summer Theatre.. These are all well within an hour of the Cottage.

The Cottage has private off-street parking large enough to accommodate a boat and trailer for use on the many area lakes.

The property has 70 feet of beautiful Abbot Creek running along its southern border. Abbot Creek is a year-round babbling mountain stream that can soothe your stress and rejuvenate your soul. My 11 siblings and I fished this lovely stream when we were youngsters!

This home sits on the original homestead property and belonged to the owner's Great Aunt who was a Martin and the daughter of the original homesteaders of Martin City. Martin City is the small town nearest the property. The owner's Father helped set the first turbine in the historic Hungry Horse Dam which is nearby.

Enjoy a scenic 10 minute drive to Glacier National Park. The Middle Fork of the Flathead river is a short hike from the cottage. Whitefish, Kalispell, and Columbia Falls are all within a 15-40 minute drive.

Amenities include:

2 bedrooms with queen beds

Bathroom with full tub shower

Gas fireplace in the living room

Private yard with large trees

70 feet of Abbot Creek frontage

Large outdoor covered patio

Fruit trees - Small garden

Fire ring w/ firepit wood

About Gabriela Egging

Abbott Creek Cottage belonged to my great Aunt Rose, the daughter of the original homesteaders inside the Canyon. It sits on part of the original homestead. The Cottage has been updated many times but the living room is the original cabin.

My father set the first turbine in Hungry Horse Dam just 4 miles from the Cottage. As a little girl my brothers and sisters and I would fish in Abbott Creek and sail our paper boats on feast days... Many a summer afternoon was spent walking the Creek to the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and picnicking along the way! A rough trek by any standards!

I was raised in Martin City, one of twelve children! My parents owned a grocery store, meat market and lockers near mile marker #144! The new highway took our home and store.

Abbot Cottage Great location, great cottage with many extras.

  • 5 of 5

Stay 3 nights and the cottage is great; large and roomy. The white noise machine in the bedroom is a real help with the road noise. The property is large with no one around you. I would stay here anytime I'm in Glacier.

Nice with a few drawbacks.

  • 3 of 5

Nice house clean and comfortable. Outside area very nice and private. Too close to Road traffic noise was pretty bad. The instructions given me on how to get to the cottage were wrong which created some inconvenience trying to find it initially.

Abbot cottage is a great escape nestled at Glaciers west entrance.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very inviting and provided all the necessary elements needed for a relaxing getaway. Very comfortable and situated in a great location. Not too close or far away from many great places. Visited Glacier, had a fun and successful day of fishing at Whitefish lake and cruised Yaak Valley. What a fun time and thanks for sharing a piece of your heaven with us, oh and the wine.

Highly Recommend Abbot Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place in an excellent location -- close to Glacier Park's western entrance. Three adults lodged quite comfortably in Abbot Creek Cottage with all the comforts of home. Highly recommend a stay there.

Convenient to Glacier

  • 4 of 5

Perfect home base to really see Glacier N P. Home is close to the west entrance to GNP. This allows you to see as much of the park as you can squeeze in for one week. The home is very clean and roomy. Dealing with the owner was a pleasure and someone you would probably want as your neighbor. Yes there is noise from the 4 lane highway nearby but it didn't seem to bother the 4-6 deer (including babies) that came through the yard everyday. We actually captured video of the babies running around the yard playing. Also loved the fact that we could a do laundry at the home.

Great cabin, mixed thoughts on location

  • 4 of 5

This spot had many many positives and only one negative.

First the positives: the cabin was lovely, well taken-care-of, comfortable beds, functional well-equipped kitchen, easy laundry, clean, updated, absolutely nothing wrong with it. The owners were very nice, very easy to work with. We lost our keys hiking, felt terrible about it, and they dropped off some new keys within an hour or so. The location is very convenient to Glacier, just 10-15 minutes from the entrance. There's a nice fire pit outside that we used to roast some marshmallows and hot dogs. There's a little creek on the property but you can't see it very well due to brushy overgrowth on the embankment.

Now the one negative: the noise from the nearby road is really terrible. There's a nice tree barrier for the view but it does nothing for the noise. For us it ruined the experience of being out in the countryside, it was really intrusive. Not too bad at night trying to sleep as the traffic dies down and the house is well-insulated, but we couldn't open the windows or enjoy spending time outside. Because of this, I probably wouldn't return, but I may be too picky about traffic noise! If this doesn't bother you, I'd recommend this place with absolutely no other reservations!

I was raised in this area along side my twelve siblings. We hiked the trails in the Park, we climbed mountains, fished the streams and rivers, kayaked, rafted and swam the many rivers and lakes of this area. We camped, we picked wild huckleberries in season, gathered mushrooms, and wild raspberries and sarvis berries for eating. We photographed the wildlife, explored the mountain trails and the lookouts situated on the mountain peaks. We drove the backroads to remote camping places and viewed the wildlife found along the way.
