Recent Montana reviews

  • Best kept Gardiner secret

    "This is a property that is a must on your list for small groups or singles. As a last minute my mom found this and WOW. The pictures do not do this justice. You will enjoy plenty of space, and extremely clean accommodations. However, your host (Tom) will be the best part of your stay. He is extremely welcoming and friendly. His local knowledge is priceless, and by the end of your stay you will know you met a friend for life. As I write this review I can't help but think that in prompting this unit more people will stay, and the dates will be harder to get. I have stayed in or about YNP for 500+ days over the past 14 years, and when it comes to Gardiner visits this is my pick. Thank You Tom for your great hospitality :)"

  • Excellent!

    "We came here for a wrestling tournament and wanted to make it a family vacation. We had different family coming from Glendive, Helena, and Laurel. We were only here for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was amazing. The inside of it was beautiful and very cozy. Dan was very helpful the whole time. We already started talking about when we could rent this place again for a longer stay this summer."

  • Second stay as great as the first!

    "We loved hiking at Glacier National Park so much that this was our third year in a row that we have visited the park. It was our second stay at the Cottonwood and if we ever return to Glacier, we would certainly stay here again. The location in town is very convenient for a short walk to the bakery and to Serrano's for great Mexican food. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen and the brand new shower was nice! Thanks Ti for taking such good care of us!"

Montana Travel Tips

Things to See and Do at Montana Vacation Rentals

Montana cabin rentals and homes offer up wide open spaces, tall mountain ranges and abundant wildlife. It is often referred to as the Big Sky State because of its wilderness appeal. Perhaps Montana's most famous natural attraction is Yellowstone National Park and the tall geyser named "Old Faithful" that erupts on a regular basis. Yellowstone vacation rentals are close to great wildlife viewing. It is home to grizzlies, wolves, and various species of deer, elk and other antelope. There are several hiking trails in the park and one of the highlights is the hike up the Iceberg Trail. The route visits the Ptarmigan Falls and then traverses the southern shore of the glacial lake known as Iceberg Lake.

For those that enjoy water sports, Montana cabin rentals along the river offer many adventure opportunities. There is whitewater rafting, paddling and fishing to be enjoyed. Another favorite way to explore the landscapes is on horseback. There are numerous road and mountain bike trails available for cyclists. For technical riders, there are miles of forest and mountain single-track sections. When the season turns, it isn't the end of the adventures. Instead, when the snows blanket the mountains, it attracts even more visitors. Montana cabins are also close to some of the best ski resorts in North America and they are also some of the more affordable to visit. There are miles of downhill ski runs catering to beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. There are also Nordic and cross country skiing trails and various snowboarding terrain parks. Snowshoeing is a popular pastime and many of the parks offer winter snowshoe hikes. There are also snow coach tours that take you sightseeing and wildlife viewing in the cozy comfort of a heated all-terrain vehicle.
