Cozy Cabin Minutes from Glacier's Two Medicine Valley

Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This cozy cabin offers the best of both worlds - all the conveniences of town just minutes from Glacier National Park. Tucked in the hamlet of East Glacier, this cabin’s within walking distance to art galleries, gift shops, restaurants, trailheads, a ranger station, horseback riding, park tours, the historic Amtrak station, a general store, and a golf course which affords stunning views of Glacier’s peaks.

The cabin’s main floor contains a bright, fully appointed kitchen, a bedroom (one full bed), bathroom, laundry facilities, and a living room complete with a comfortable couch which can sleep one person. The comfy loft overlooks the living area and holds a hand-made log bed (full-size). To accommodate those with allergies, no pets are allowed.

The East Glacier area boasts breathtaking mountain scenery, meadows choked with wildflowers, and an amazing array of wildlife. Lucky visitors can spot grizzly bears, black bears, elk, moose, bald eagles, beaver, lynx, mountain lions, wolverines, fishers, pine martens, mountain goats, big horn sheep, and more.

Area activities and attractions include hiking, fishing, climbing, birding, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, boat rides, the Museum of the Plains Indians, the Blackfeet Heritage Center, North American Indian Days Powwow (second weekend in July), naturalist guided hikes, evening programs in Glacier Park, and Visitor Centers.

Roads from East Glacier travel north along the east front of the Rocky Mountains and lead to St. Mary, Going-to-the-Sun Road, Babb (home of the world’s best steak), Many Glacier, and Waterton Park in Canada. Visitors can also travel south and west over Maria’s Pass to West Glacier and back across Going-to-the-Sun Road.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2002

Why The Owner chose Glacier Park

Colleen purchased the cabin when she moved to East Glacier after landing a job teaching English at Blackfeet Community College. It was a dream come true. Ever since a vacation to Glacier in 1989, Colleen had been trying to get to live near the park. Another dream came true when she met Mark at East Glacier's Fireman's Ball--the fundraiser for the volunteer fire department. The dream with two kids and more fun than any person could hope for.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is ideally located in town but within a block's walk of the stunning view afforded by froggy flats. It's close to ammenities as well as hiking, climbing and fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Colleen and Mark,

Thanks so much for sharing your cabin with us! We had a wonderful time exploring Glacier with this as our home base. In fact, we like this end of the Park best--quieter, less people--great hikes out of Two Medicine. We like the Many Glacier area also. Serrano's Mexican Restaurant-awesome-we went twice!! We hike a lot in Rocky Mtn National Park--you have a lot more lakes and rivers--we enjoyed the water. We are off to Banff and Jasper, so thanks again for making the first leg of our journey so comfortable--it was great!

cozy cabin for sure

  • 4 of 5

This little cabin is in a great location--you can walk to restaurants if you would like and it is very close to the Two Medicine Entrance to Glacier. Overall, the cabin is good for either a couple or a couple with 2-3 kids, but because one bedroom is in the loft, I wouldn't recommend it for more than one couple. It could use a little sprucing up, but it was clean and provided us a great location for great six night stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us at our cozy cabin! We agree with your assessment that the cabin is conveniently located in East Glacier Park Village. You can walk to restaurants, gift shops, the golf course and beautiful Glacier Park Lodge. All are within a 1/2 mile of the cabin. We're glad you had fun and hope you can return to stay with us again. Sincerely, Mark, Colleen & the kids

We had a great stay at cozy cabin! Perfect for 2 couples and was very clean. Owners were easy to work with and laid back. A bit of a drive from St.Mary's and Many Glacier, but all in all a lovely place to stay!

The cabin is in a great location and relatively comfortable. It works well for exploring the east side of the park.

Has all the basics you need for few nights. The only challenge is the spiral staircase that leads to the main bedroom. Kind of a bummer getting up and down to go the john in the middle of the night. Overall it's very basic and nothing fancy but for exploring the park it's fine.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bert for your candid review. We're glad you found our cabin equipped with everything necessary for you exploration of Glacier National Park and the Rocky Mountain Front. By the way, a quick search of the Ritz Carlton website shows a comparable room starting around $590 per night. We feel we offer a great property at a more affordable rate. Take the $400+ per night savings and treat yourself to a steak dinner at one of our many local eateries! Sorry you didn't like the spiral staircase, but it sure saves some room in the main living area downstairs. And we think it's a trade that most people would find beneficial. It is pictured prominently in the photos on the website and mentioned in the written description. We look forward to your return to the area and hope that next time you will consider staying longer. Glacier is a spectacular National Park and our location, as you discovered, is convenient to all town services. And it is just 12 miles to the beautiful Two Medicine Valley. Good luck on your next adventure! Best, Mark, Colleen & the Kids

Disappointing Stay

  • 1 of 5

This cabin was highly disappointing and I would not recommend it. We started our holiday in East Glacier by cleaning stuck on food on dishes, kitchen sink and fridge, the BBQ was caked with burnt on food and there was a good layer of dust on furniture. Bathroom had several cobwebs on the walls and ceiling. The place looked like it was unoccupied or cleaned for a while before our arrival. The cabin sleeps 5, has a full kitchen but it comes equipped with only 2 bar stools to sit down at the kitchen counter and eat. This is awkward when trying to eat as a family with small kids.
