Very nice and enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

The property was just as described. Our 5 girls loved seeing the horses and playing with the dogs! Capri and Shawn were very friendly and helpful. The area is beautiful and the cabin fit our family of 7 well. There is no dishwasher or washer/dryer but we did fine without them. The cabin was clean and comfortable. We spent one day in Glacier Park and it took a good hour to get to the east gate, but the drive was spectacular! Groceries in the area are scarce and expensive so we were glad we brought most essentials along. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at this property!

Awesome Montana experience

  • 5 of 5

The property and surroundings are amazing. Close enough to everything but far away enough from the crowds. We can't say enough about the stars! We would love to stay again and will recommend to friends.

Cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Montana 25+ times and this was one of the more enjoyable stays. The cabin is very well furnished and is on a working ranch adjacent to Glacier Park, surrounded by towering mountains. Plenty of room for four adults and a couple of kids. The owner, Capri, was a very helpful and gracious host. She went out of her way to make sure everything was in order and that we were comfortable. Will be back.

A great place to get away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 5 enjoyed our 6 night stay. Our granddaughter especially loved Hoss and Sis, and made sure to get them a treat every time they came to the door. She also was thrilled by being able to get right up to and pet the horses, as well as getting the chance to sit on one prior to our Monday morning ride. This is a great place to stay for access to both sides of the park. You do have to drive a few extra miles, but the quiet atmosphere and lack of other people makes that more than worth it. The cabin was more than large enough to accommodate our party. I would certainly recommend this as a place to stay on your visit to Glacier National Park. Thanks Capri and Shawn, and all of the friendly staff!!!
