About the Property
Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Outfitted with many hand-peeled log accents and rustic iron work, this upscale cabin evokes the feeling of the great camps of decades gone by.
There are two huge, magnificent trees inside that support the structure. The lodge also offers the modern convenience of wireless internet if you feel the need to 'stay connected.'
Located in a large meadow, Lupine Meadow Lodge has wonderful views of the peaks of Glacier National Park. With many windows and four decks, you will have ample opportunity to relax and appreciate the beauty.
The cabin is surrounded on two sides by the Flathead National Forest. As the North Fork is remote and pristine, this high-tech cabin provides its own electricity from an underground generator and solar panels as this location is off the grid.
Lupine Meadow Lodge is located in the North Fork Valley of the Flathead River in Northwest Montana. The North Fork is designated a 'Wild and Scenic River' and its beauty is startling.
The cabin is located on the western border of Glacier National Park and is six and one-half miles north of the small outpost town of Polebridge. This picturesque town is comprised of a Mercantile which has basic provisions and a renowned bakery, The Northern Lights Saloon (restaurant and pub), a few rustic cabins for lodging, and approximately 40 residents. The Northwest entrance to Glacier National Park is accessed through Polebridge and is only about 8 miles from the cabin.
The North Fork is a special place and a true back country enthusiast's paradise. Known as America's last true wild lands, the North Fork is home to abundant wildlife including grizzlies, gray wolves, moose, elk, deer, mountain lions, snowshoe rabbits, bald eagles, and hawks.
There are many outdoor activities including excellent fishing on the North Fork River or the nearby mountain lakes and streams, hundreds of miles of trails, and old logging roads on which to hike and mountain bike. Lupine Meadow Lodge also provides excellent access to Glacier National Park.
Whether your desire is to get away and relax, or to make the most of the back country, Lupine Meadow Lodge will be sure to make your vacation remarkable. The lodge has a bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and a bath with a shower. There are two bedrooms upstairs with a queen bed in the master and two twin beds in the second bedroom. The bath upstairs has a tub/shower combination.

The community of Polebridge is like visiting the old west. The Mercantile (on the historic register) is famous for its freshly baked huckleberry bear claws, cookies and hot sandwiches as well as a variety of keepsakes to remind you of your trip. (owner sells her art in there) The Northern Lights Saloon serves delicious food as well as a variety of beer, wine and soft drinks.
There is a gas pump at the Mercantile but it is recommended that you fill up and do your grocery shopping in town for greater variety.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We both worked at Many Glacier on the east side of Glacier National Park in the 70's. We met when Sue was working for the concession in the coffee shop and Greg was in maintenance and took coffee breaks. We returned the following summer and a married couple and became a ranger and Greg continued in maintenance. We spent 8 summers at Many Glacier hiking and climbing all over the park so we know it well. Our son Merritt was named after two of our favorite mountains in the park.
Why the Owner Chose Polebridge, MT, USA:
Fast forward to 2004. We were interested in purchasing property near Glacier and decided on this location with it's beautiful views of Glacier and the rustic lodge feel of the cabin. We have since expanded the cabin into a lodge with added personal space and a three car garage. We made sure the expansion looked like it fit with the original structure rather than like an add-on.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We loved how quiet it was and there are no other neighbor buildings visible. You can sit on the back porch looking at the peaks of Glacier and hear the wings of the birds as they fly over.
