The Guest House is a quaint chalet style 1000 sq ft. home with plenty of private outdoor living areas for you and your family. The mountains of GNP can be seen easily from the north of the home just a mile as the crow flies. The West Glacier Entrance to the park is just 8.2 miles away or 11 miles to the Camas Road Entrance to GNP. The home is on a paved county road, away from the noise of the train and traffic on the HWY 2 canyon corridor.
The Glacier Guest House sits on its own acre that adjoins Flathead National Forest just behind the fire ring area. Its deck and gabled windows enjoy an unencumbered view of Flathead National Forest. The forest adjoins the property with hiking trails and wildlife of its own.
Desert and Belton Mountains frame the Eastern sky and Teakettle Mountain is directly behind the home. You won't have any distracting neighbors to impede your enjoyment of your rest time between excursions. The closest neighbor is the owner (and family) who is available to the guests with any assistance. The home is well maintained and improved upon constantly.
The Glacier Guest House is a fully equipped home perfect for families or those that require wheelchair or handicap accessibility. The GGH's contemporary yet rustic decor make it even more enjoyable stay. Flooring, room spacing, door entrances have all been taken in account for those who require wheelchair accessibility.
The Glacier Guest House is a new home, just built in June of 2012.
There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, one room includes a hideaway pop up twin trundle. All the bedroom mattresses are Tempurpedic for the benefit of the best nights sleep after a long day of hiking. Each bedroom has two windows bringing in lots of light and the feeling of bringing the outdoors in.
The Master has direct access to the main bath with a pocket door. The main bath has both a shower and a tub unit. The shower has a built in seat, elevating and removable hand held shower head, and hand rail. The toilet also has two hand rails for those requiring them. There is a powder room off of the great room, which is not handicap equipped but great for reducing wait time for the main bath.
The Great Room and kitchen/ dining area have expansive views out a gabled ceiling and trapezoidal windows. French doors open to the deck with wildlife and star gazing outside.
The kitchen island is a wonderful conversation piece of a single slab of pine. It seats three on counter stools and the dining area seats four more. A bear proof trash can is provided but remember to be 'Bear Aware'.
The Great Room has a 42 inch hdtv with smart dvd player. The home includes wifi. The Master Bedroom has a 32 inch tv/dvd. Basic satellite channels and Netflix are included to make your stay that much more comfortable.
There is a queen sleeper sofa and a twin sleeper in the Great Room, both with memory foam toppers.

We are an average American family who wanted to build a home for Grandmom and Poppy to come and stay comfortably. We are both Navy Veterans and have two young children. We love the mountains and playing outside. Brenda is a trained classical musician from The Peabody Institute and Tracy is a Physician Assistant.
Brenda purchased this House in 2012
Why Brenda chose Columbia Falls
We built The Glacier Guest House on our land next to our home, but far enough as to not be intrusive. It is the perfect home base near all of the amenities surrounding Glacier National Park.
What makes this House unique
The back deck of The Glacier Guest House faces into Flathead National Forest and a corridor of over 11 million acres of wild land including Glacier National Park and The Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. Wildlife including Black Bears, Grizzly Bears, Wolves, Coyotes, Elk, Moose and White Tail deer are often seen through the windows while seated in the Great Room. The photo of the Moose with the Red flame on the tree shows how close to the home they come. In fact, We are Bear Aware here and we do provide a special bear-proof trash can to keep any enticements out of reach. The Glacier Guest House is a quick 15 mins drive or 8.2 miles to the West Glacier Entrance to The Glacier National Park. The house is in one of the nicer quieter areas in the valley within a close proximity to the park. Most especially the owners live 100 yards away and are eager to be sure that your stay is as comfortable as it can be.

A wonderful place to stay close to the West Glacier entrance to the park
The Glacier Guest House was the perfect place to stay to be centrally located and enjoy Glacier National Park, Whitefish, Kalispell, and Flathead Lake. The house has everything you could ask for and is in excellent condition on a quiet road in a beautiful part of the country. We stayed from 24-June to 01-July. Brenda dropped by after we were settled in and brought an extra bottle of wine to add to the one that was already waiting for us in the house. She provided some great tips on hikes in the park and gave us the most accurate forecast of when the Going To The Sun Road would open (she was right on, as it opened on 28-June)! We had 5 adults and there was plenty of room for all of us. We cooked a number of times at the house and used the stove as well as the grill (trout we caught on Flathead Lake) and the fire-ring (our son cooked up a hobo dinner with banana boats over the hot coals). The kitchen had everything we needed and it was great eating out on the deck and sitting around the fire at night. We were able to hike/kayak at multiple locations in the park (West Glacier, East Glacier, St. Mary, and Many Glacier), traverse the GTSR a couple of times, visit Whitefish and the Whitefish Mountain Resort, and go trout fishing on Flathead Lake. We had an amazing time and we would highly recommend the Glacier Guest House and this area of the country!
Thank you. We are so happy to hear guests have had such terrific Glacier experiences. Come again as there are still plenty of trails to enjoy!
Lovely home in lovely setting
Husband and I & two friends loved our stay in this beautiful home. It is comfortable, nicely decorated and a perfect place for access to Glacier National Park. We grilled and ate on deck each evening. The kitchen is fully stocked for those of us who enjoy cooking. The hosts are very attentive if needs arise and nice people. If six stars were an option I'd give all six!!
Beautiful guest house!
We loved the guest house. Brenda was very helpful upon check in to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us some advice on the park. She said to call if we needed anything during our stay which we never needed. i loved that we knew she was near if we needed anything but left us alone to enjoy our own experience. A great host.
Look forward to coming back!
great place to stay
The glacier guest house is all we hoped it would be it was easy to go any direction, almost too quiet had a great time
Great little house
With best location in area. Just minutes off West Glacier, I will make this my go to place every year
This was a beautiful setting and home away from home, near to Glacier N.P., West Glacier and Columbia Falls. We enjoyed our stay with the comfy beds and back porch. We'd visit here again!
