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.

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.
We stayed at the cottage for a week while visiting Glacier & the surrounding area. The cottage was not too small, well appointed and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and more, including a small coffee grinder. The bathroom is small, but it was fine for our family of 3. The location was perfect - close to Glacier, but not too far away from shopping, Whitefish and Kalispell.
Only two small downsides: there are several steps up/down within the house that I kept forgetting about and stumbling over and it IS pretty close to the main road. If we had stayed around the house all day, the road noise might have been bothersome; as it was, we were hiking during the day and I guess we were too tired at night for it to keep us awake!
Gabriela was very responsive and helpful with a small problem we had after leaving the cottage. We would definitely stay again on another visit to Glacier. Thank you!
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, all the essentials you need. Very clean property and private stay. Glad we chose to stay here. Would love to stay again.
A perfect cottage for a family or small group off the main road in a quiet area but close to the park and town.
The layout is perfect with a huge kitchen/Dinning room and a large living room. 2 bed room fully furnished and 1 bathroom. There is a nice coveted poach with a grill.
The cottage has all the supplied to make it a home including a washer and dryer and wifi.
This was a great alternative to a hotel
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 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.
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.
I was raised in this area along side my eleven 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.
Our father placed the first turbine in the famous Hungry Horse Dam. The construction of this dam in the late 40's and 50's provided many good jobs and today provides wonderful recreation opportunities for locals and visitors. There is an interesting visitor's center at the dam site.
