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!!!

Great value, great property, great people!

  • 5 of 5

Capri made us feel totally at home! The beautiful cabin is nestled in the woods. We saw elk and deer. Sis, the old hound dog, made us feel like we were hers. The horses and general layout were ideal. The location is between East & West Glacier. Plenty of fishing sites, easy access to rafting, riding, trails and anything you would like to do! You have to try it - as long as my family isn't trying to get it for the same dates! :-)

Excellent with extra care for comfortablity.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is nestled in the mountains beside a ranch, so you actually get the beauty of the area with the horses and meadows adding extra charm. They added extra touches to the decor to make it even more like home.

Beautiful ~ Serene ~ BEST Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful family vacation! The house is awesome ~ very clean and comfortable! The kitchen is nice and well stocked with all pots, pans, dishes and small appliances. Shawn and Capri went above and beyond in making us feel welcome; helping with us ideas on where to visit in Glacier National Park; allowing us to share their precious pets (Sis, the sweet older dog and T-Bone, the baby calf). We cooked outside around the fire most nights and enjoyed the very peaceful setting of their mountain cabin. Everyone in our group agrees ~ the BEST vacation ever.....and by the way, Glacier National Park was pretty awesome too!

Great relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place to see all the sights of Glacier National Park. You are centrally located for both sides of the Park and we enjoyed the East side due to less visitors. We were able to have Capri and Shawn provide us the day ride on horses into the wilderness area. Beautiful scenery. Was able to watch them practice for an upcoming rodeo and our daughter was able to help with the horses. Friendly dogs which greet and welcome you. Very knowledgeable of the entire area and my brother from Cutbank enjoyed common friendships. We used the bunk house and main cabin. Great sleeping and restful. The buildings are off the main highway 2 and is quiet, surrounded by trees. Enjoyed waking up to the horses sounds. Enjoyed watching the trains from the cabin and did not even hear them at night. Sad moment when we knew that we had to pack up and leave after 7 days. Learned how to fly fish in the stream (Bear Creek) on their property, even caught some. The single bathroom, we learned to work around and got a schedule that worked for all. Friendly people who wanted our stay to be memorable. Thank you for all your extra efforts Capri and Shawn.
