About Colleen Erickson

This historic log home has been in the FORD family since the 80's. It was completely remodeled in 2011 & 2012.

Why Colleen Erickson chose East Glacier Park

This property offers a corner lot that has no neighbors to the south or east except the golfers and the bears. Smile. There is a wonderful view out each window and easy walking distance to everything you would need...restaurants, art galleries, store. Cook in the gourmet kitchen or BBQ on the lovely covered porch after a day of enjoying what Glacier has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. We have blended the old with the new in a cozy 'feel-right-at-home' environment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Many thanks for the warm accommodations. We were pleasantly surprised during our stay at the stock of various items you kept. Absolutely wonderful. Our large group easily fit in the Candy Kitchen and we were all so comfortable. The house was beautiful inside and out, and the lawn was wonderfully kept. The kids loved it! Thank you for everything!

Beautiful and special home!

  • 5 of 5

The Candy Kitchen is undeniably a very special place to stay. The home has been refurbished and the quality updates are plentiful! We were of group of friends (3 couples) meeting at Glacier National Park and it was just perfect for us...a cozy back porch where we spent a lot of time visiting and enjoying the beautiful view, lovely, comfortable bedrooms, and a great kitchen to cook in and chat. The towels (there were many!) were soft and luxurious and I loved the shower head in the bathroom we used (it was a double shower head, with one that detaches). The kitchen was so well stocked as was the large laundry room. And I have to mention that this home was incredibly of the cleanest homes we have ever rented. Colleen was so sweet and helpful in providing lots of information about the home and the area. It was such a joy to talk with her during the planning of our trip. This is definitely one of my favorite places we've rented and I would highly recommend The Candy Kitchen to anyone looking for a quality home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely gorgeous.. with a beautiful history as well! Colleen was extremely helpful and friendly from the very first email and up to and including our visit. (Thank you Colleen!). The kitchen is very well stocked and orderly... It was very, very, very clean... (thanks Pierre!) Loved the little "niceties" which included a bottle of wine and Dr. Teals soap in the bathrooms! I cannot think of anything that was missed in this beautiful home. Thank you so much!!!

Made reservations before we left - changed our tradition of try8ing new places! Cannot be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Historic, newly remodeled, luxurious, spotlessly clean, incredible views, top notch furnishings, just a walk to the iconic East Glacier National Hotel, watch golf across the road or glaciers from the other windows. When Colleen greets you at the door - you feel as if you found a long lost relative!!!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was amazing! The history behind it, the view, and beautifully furnished with everything you need in a home away from home. Even included a complimentary bottle of one of the local wines. Close to the East Glacier Park lodge and Two Medicine in Glacier Park. We were a family of 10 and were quite comfortable sharing this incredible home. Even saw bear tracks about half a mile from the house! No moose, but maybe next time. Thanks Colleen for a wonderful, memorable experience!

Great Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family and another family stayed together at this beautiful home in East Glacier. The kids loved staying upstairs together and having their own space. The kitchen was so well furnished as we like to cook our own meals on vacation. The fans were a great option as we had some hot days in the park. The yard was beautiful and the kids loved playing frisbee and other games in the yard in the evenings. We loved being close to the main lodge as well, but with better accommodations. ;) Colleen was amazing--there if we needed anything and super welcoming. Thanks for a great stay!
