Comfortable cottage in a superb location VERY near to Glacier!

Make happy memories, experience the incredible beauty of Glacier, venture to pristine lakes, explore wild rivers, call it an adventure! Our family cottage is the perfect place to rest up after all your Montana exploring. We welcome all adventurers!

The space

Our River Bend cottage is a cute, updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath home in West Glacier, the perfect spot to launch your Montana adventures! River Bend cottage is located on the 18th hole of Glacier View golf course, less than 2 miles to the entrance to Glacier National Park and across the street from the Middle fork of the Flathead river. Our family loves the opportunity to unwind, relax and take time together that the pleasant serenity of River Bend provides. We sincerely hope you will have as much fun hiking, fishing, floating, rambling, laughing, relaxing and restoring in our cottage as we do!

We have done our best to make River Bend a comfortable, affordable, delightful place to stay. The first bedroom has a queen sized bed,located upstairs next to the bathroom, has a washer and dryer so you can hike clean! The second bedroom is downstairs with a twin over full bunkbed, and another twin bed. The family room and the living room have large windows and doors opening onto the back deck where guests can rest and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views. We have added a gas grill to cookout on! The full kitchen has everything necessary to share meals together including a microwave, dishwasher and AC. We have provided games, books, maps, and an opportunity to observe nature and enjoy each other.

Guest access

Guests use the whole house, deck and yard! The garage is not available for guest parking. But there's plenty of room in the driveway!

However, the garage has some items we are happy to share with you. There are some coolers, a few bikes (nothing fancy), and a set of golf clubs (again, nothing fancy or new!) for guests to use.

Interaction with guests

Our family lives on our little farm 30 minutes away in Whitefish. We want your stay in Montana to be AWESOME, so let us know if there's anything you need.

Other things to note

Guests will want to stop in Columbia Falls to load up on groceries before heading up to West Glacier! Super One Foods is a convenient choice. There are little stores in West Glacier for incidentals.

My parents, brother and I had a wonderful stay at the Staggerin' Inn. It was so nice to have a house that was so affordable and so close to the park (it literally is a 2 minute drive, and is conveniently located really close to a grocery store and other West Glacier Shops and Restaurants). For the price it was just fine, nothing fancy, but it was very clean. The basement where I slept had kind of a damp smell, but it's a basement! The view from the back is amazing, it sits on a lovely golf course and has a view of the mountains. Like I said it's the perfect place for a family to be able to spend time together so close to the park! Also the owner was very accommodating, letting us check in early and was always available via text. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location, close to West Entrance

Our family enjoyed being together in the house close to the park. Sitting out on the deck in the mornings and evenings was delightful.

Miriam was responsive to our questions.

Nice, quiet, well furnished and as advertised

  • 4 of 5

Nice location close to park and at edge of golf course so very quiet. Well furnished and very comfy for 4-5 people. Basement room is a bit dark but not awful Biggest problem was finding where to turn lights on and several didn't work in the basement room.

Owner's Response: I apologize for that - I found the same thing when I arrived there after you left! Turns out that we needed new light bulbs! Got them all changed and good to go now! 2 burnt out bulbs makes for a very dark room indeed! Thanks!

Nice location at West Glacier

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Check in/out were easy and the location was great, about 1/2 mile from the local store, Canadian park information and a nice restaurant. The place was rather musty when we arrived, but this improved with our stay. I'm guessing it had been empty for a while? The place is for sale and this is evident by how the owners are taking care of the yard, several light bulbs were missing, etc. With a few improvements, this would be a really nice place to spend at Glacier. We just spent our evenings there so it wasn't a huge problem. I slept on the couch in the living room as the downstairs didn't have a bathroom.

Owner's Response: Lightbulbs were replaced. Yard needed a mow and got one on July 4 as it is a very busy time in the Park and we work with the public so needed the opportunity to get out there! I think this cabin is a great little spot and love being out there! It is all a cabin a national park should be! Glad you enjoyed your time in Glacier! It is certainly a special place to us!

40th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Staggerin' Inn was perfect for our 40th anniversary celebration. It's situated on the edge of a beautiful golf course, the mountains in the background, and we were able to enjoy the freedom of a private home at the edge of the Glacier NP west entrance. It was comfortable and cozy and provided for all our needs.
