The Guest House is a quaint chalet style 1000 sq ft. home with plenty of private outdoor living areas for you and your family. The mountains of GNP can be seen easily from the north of the home just a mile as the crow flies. The West Glacier Entrance to the park is just 8.2 miles away or 11 miles to the Camas Road Entrance to GNP. The home is on a paved county road, away from the noise of the train and traffic on the HWY 2 canyon corridor. The Glacier Guest House sits on its own acre that adjoins Flathead National Forest just behind the fire ring area. Its deck and gabled windows enjoy an unencumbered view of Flathead National Forest. The forest adjoins the property with hiking trails and wildlife of its own. Desert and Belton Mountains frame the Eastern sky and Teakettle Mountain is directly behind the home. You won't have any distracting neighbors to impede your enjoyment of your rest time between excursions. The closest neighbor is the owner (and family) who is available to the guests with any assistance. The home is well maintained and improved upon constantly.

The GGH's contemporary yet rustic decor make it even more enjoyable stay. Flooring, room spacing, door entrances have all been taken in account for those who require wheelchair accessibility.

About the owner: We are an average American family who wanted to build a home for Grandmom and Poppy to come and stay comfortably. We are both Navy Veterans and have two young children. We love the mountains and playing outside. Brenda is a trained classical musician from The Peabody Institute and Tracy is a Physician Assistant.
Why the Owner Chose West Glacier: We built The Glacier Guest House on our land next to our home, but far enough as to not be intrusive. It is the perfect home base near all of the amenities surrounding Glacier National Park.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The back deck of The Glacier Guest House faces into Flathead National Forest and a corridor of over 11 million acres of wild land including Glacier National Park and The Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.
Wildlife including Black Bears, Grizzly Bears, Wolves, Coyotes, Elk, Moose and White Tail deer are often seen through the windows while seated in the Great Room. The photo of the Moose with the Red flame on the tree shows how close to the home they come.
In fact, We are Bear Aware here and we do provide a special bear-proof trash can to keep any enticements out of reach.
The Glacier Guest House is a quick 15 mins drive or 8.2 miles to the West Glacier Entrance to The Glacier National Park. The house is in one of the nicer quieter areas in the valley within a close proximity to the park.
Most especially the owners live 100 yards away and are eager to be sure that your stay is as comfortable as it can be.
