                        My boyfriend and I stayed at Ty's place for a few days in mid-June and had an absolutely wonderful time. The views from the deck are amazing and it was so QUIET. You couldn't see or hear any neighbors. The only "man-made" sound we heard was the occassional train going by far in the distance. It's about a 20 minute drive to the entrance of West Glacier via Blankenship Bridge which was great for us as we spent most of our visit at the park. Everything was very clean and in good order. We would absolutely love to come back sometime, but it is a long trip from the East Coast! If you want a quiet, peaceful getaway at the doorstep of Glacier National Park, this is the right place. Our only regret? We tired ourselves out hiking each day so we never stayed up past dusk (~10 PM) to see the beautiful Montana night sky!

                        WOW! Say it backwards, WOW! Teakettle Mountain Ranch was the perfect retreat for me, my wife, son and his girlfriend. We had an incredible time. Critters were so much fun. A Momma black bear with 3 cubs just a stones throw from the property. We were literally about 15 feet from them (in our truck of course). We also saw elk close to the house and numerous deer, many bucks. Glacier National Park is beyond words. We did the Going To The Sun Road twice it was that special. Again, the wildlife and overall scenery left all of us speechless at times. It is that spectacular. Other activities included Rafting, hiking, trout fishing, a Winery tasting and Brewery tasting with some great restaurants through out the week. Ty was wonderful with his insight on the area and suggestions. His home is soooo nice. Quiet, remote. The perfect place to relax anytime of the day. We cooked some great meals in the kitchen and even had s'mores over the fire pit. Careful Ty, you might get some new neighbors, we were looking at property by you. We liked it that much. Looking forward to next year already. What a great place. Thanks for sharing Ty. We Wisconsonites appreciate you sharing your beautiful home with us. See you in 2014.

                        Your first step into the cabin tells you that you made a wise choice in cabins. There is a beautiful kitchen with lots of natural wood ans great cookware. We grilled out elk and antelope provided by a local friend. The view From every window and deck is ncredible. I want to say thank you Ty for sharing your lovely home with us!

                        We would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Glacier National Park. On the easy 15 minute drive in to the park we saw a couple bears and even a moose right next to the property. The property is very private and has incredible views from the deck and family room. We spent many nights on the deck with a fire enjoying the great views of the park. Ty, the owner answered all of our phone calls and questions promptly and was very easy to deal with and had some good tips on exploring the park. The master bedroom is very spacious with a nice fireplace if the nights get chilly. The kitchen is also very spacious and could serve the needs of a large family. As for Glacier, it was incredible. The scenary and hiking are the best I have experienced. We hiked every day with our 5 year old son and were blown away by the raw beauty of this park. We saw multiple grizzlies,bighorn sheep,goats,5 moose and many other small critters. You will not be disappointed if you rent this home, it was great!

                        We stayed at this property for close to a week, and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The views are spectacular, the cabin is well-kept and immaculate, and despite being "off the grid," we never felt like we were truly roughing it. The cabin is about a 20-25 minute drive from Columbia Falls, depending on the condition of the roads, and how comfortable you are driving on narrow dirt roads. The real surprise though was how close we were to West Glacier - only a 20 minute drive to the park entrance over the Blankenship bridge. (Google maps will try to route you back through Columbia Falls and onto 2. Don't believe it.) We were able to spend all day enjoying the great hikes and sights of Glacier National Park, and then relax on the deck overlooking the valley with a glass of wine, far away from the crowds and the constant trains. Our host was friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive. He made sure that we had his cellphone number before he left, and I'm sure that if we had needed anything, he would have been happy to help, but the cabin was so well-equipped that we never needed assistance or supplies. I would not recommend this cabin for people with mobility issues, as the bedroom is reached via a small, steep, winding staircase. Also, I'm not sure that this would be appropriate for families with very small children, as there is a deck overlooking a steep slope, and a creek on site. We prefer to rent homes or cabins when we travel, and this is one of the nicest that we've stayed in. I highly recommend it.

                        I stayed at the Teakettle Ranch house for a week and a half in June. It was my first time visiting Montana, and I couldn't have found a better place to stay! The house and property are beautiful and really well maintained. The deck is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the views, and the grand-style living room and kitchen are walled by huge windows, so you can enjoy the sun by day and the stars by night. Ty is a helpful and gracious host - he was able to help me make the most of my time in his neck of the woods. And an unexpected bonus - by staying in a solar powered house, I ended up learning how to be a little more efficient in my day-to-day energy usage! My only regret: I did not get to see any moose. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. And I plan on returning to the house next time I visit Montana.

                        A great place to unplug and unwind. Ty is a fantastic host and the off the grid house is charming and quirky. Bring a jeep, enjoy the amazing views, it's a quick hop over to the park, hope you like antlers, and you'll be happy you went!

                        Ty was very helpful and also very kind. The views from this cabin were amazing and it was fairly secluded which was great for enjoying nature, but was also a short commute from the park.
