- Numa Peak is nestled in a small strip of private land between the Whitefish National Forest and Glacier National Park. It is considered the most remote valley remaining in the continental USA. It is home to an abundance of wildlife including Grizzly and Black Bears, Mountain lions, Moose, Elk, Wolves, Deer, and Big Horn Sheep. All the activities available in Glacier National Park are just a step away. In addition to the hiking, backpacking, fly fishing, wildlife, canoeing, rafting, biking, photography, etc... Numa Peak is in close proximity to golf, tennis, horseback riding and more. As Numa Peak is 35 miles up the North Fork Road from major civilization, when the sun disappears, so does the light! The result is a superb panorama of stars you may have never seen. Stargazing is a must!...moreless

Very relaxing and peaceful stay
Very relaxing and peaceful stay
My wife, daughter and I spent a wonderful week at the Kintla cabin. The accomodations were very comfortable and the views are amazing. Excellent location to explore the Northwest side of the Park, with a relatively short drive to many central Park highlights. We will be back.

About the owner: During one of our many family visits up into the Glacier National Park area, we were driving down the North Fork Road and saw a small 'for Sale' sign next to the road. We couldn't believe that someone would be selling a plot of land so close to this pristine land! We whipped our car around so fast and met with a wonderful couple who had raised their family on that property for many many years. It was simple decision. For the next twenty years, my children, Kira, Ian and Tris spent many glorious days hiking, fishing, rafting, climbing, and playing in the snow (Glacier snow + three kiddos = ridiculously impressive snow forts). Our addition onto the original cabin was meant to be a place where they could all return with their families one day. Eventually the idea came about to share the property with other people who would love the quiet and splendor that this wonderful valley offers.
Why the Owner Chose Polebridge:
Numa Peak has the advantage of privacy and quiet but also with close proximity to both Glacier National Park and the township of Polebridge. The convenience to food, music and diverse company often from all over the world with the ability to return quickly home to a quiet haven is just too good to be true. It is difficult to describe the beauty, the smell...just the feel of being in the middle of nature at its best
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Numa Peak property continues to surprise us all year long with its extreme range of beauty. The summers are warm and dry filled with beautiful plants, grasses, and roaming wildlife. The winters are fierce and majestic, with pine trees becoming snow ghosts and a few lonesome footprints in the snow, a grand feeling of seclusion sets in. It doesn't matter what time of year, this place becomes an escape for our family, a place to unwind and remind ourselves of how simple and beautiful life can truly be. It would be selfish to keep this gem hidden from others so we invite you to stay and experience it all for yourself, be it adventure or a eve for stargazing.
