Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit in your lovely mountain home! It is more lovely than we could have imagined, and the internet does not do it justice. Our visit to Montana was more enjoyable than last time, and we did a lot more than three years ago. We contribute most of that to where we stayed! We rented a raft and floated down the Flathead, road horses at Many Glacier, hiked to Avalanche Falls and Hidden Lakes, went to Polebridge (one of our favorite places) twice, saw bears, a moose, eagles, ground squirrels, chipmunks, many many hummingbirds, beavers. I could go on and on!!

Beautiful Custom Log Home on the River Bordering Glacier Park
average rating of 4.840909 based on 45 reviews

Amazing property. Stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

On the river, couldn't ask for a better location and property for family vacation. All kinds of amenities. After a hike up Logans Pass, coming back to sit by the river was the best.

This is a spectacular home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the views of the mountains and the river. The patios were our favorite places...lots of birds to complement the great views. Hoping to travel back to this house in 2018. Owner was very responsive to questions and the house is extremely well maintained.

It was everything we hoped for! The views were just breathtaking! Sitting at the dining room table and looking at the river and mountains was awesome!!! The upstairs area was perfect for star gazing!! All bedrooms were very comfortable! The fireplace was great for taking the chill out and just cozying up and reading a book! I think each bedroom should have a TV. Loved taking walks everyday! A little problem with flies but got it taken care of!! Did we enjoy our stay, you betcha!!

Cabin and location were exceptional

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was spacious and beautiful and very well appointed. We arrived much later in the evening than we anticipated but everything was easy to find and the cabin was ready for us. The location is exceptional. The view is spectacular and just steps from the Flathead River (alas, no luck with catching fish though my brother and husband tried every day of our stay). We were given excellent directions to the place and everything worked or was in the spot that the owner said it would be. The highlight of our trip was the last morning when we watched a pack of wolves stalking a herd of elk from the front porch deck on the Flathead River. We will never forget the memories of this place and would like to go again in the future. We think it's wonderful that the owners allow people like us to share in this fabulous place and experience Montana/Glacier. We are blessed to have found it!!

Peace, Solitude, Magnificient Surroundings and Memories

  • 5 of 5

When my Husband suggested that I would love Montana as much as Alaska and that we should visit, I thought to myself ... I am always up for adventure. But nothing could ever compare to Alaska. Several health scares with my Husband and we were not sure if this trip would ever happen. Steve and Kathy kept in constant contact and assured me that there was no rush to make a decision and wished for a speedy recovery. Well, we made it to the cabin and I could sit here and type all the words in the dictionary to describe the amazing scenery but there is never a picture that tells the memories of the heart. The cabin is tucked directly on the river bank and you hear nothing but Nature. You see nothing but the unfolding granduer of Glacier National Park. The first morning we wake up to a beautiful Elk crossing the clear, flowing river. We both couldn't grab our cameras fast enough to see what other jewels Nature would bestow upon us. As the fog began to lift, 7 deer crossing the river to the front of the cabin. I made a new friend, Pip the Chipmunk, who visited me most mornings and even joined me on the porch for an afternoon reading. I couldn't believe that we had not only found a cabin on the river at the base of Glacier National Park but we found a place to call home for the week we were here. This trip wasn't just a trip for us. My Father-in-law had passed 3 years ago and his and our Mother's one dream was to see the beauty of Montana. The best we could do was bring our Mother so that she too could experience the magnificient beauty that this Glacier Chalet and Glacier itself had to share with us. We spent two days in the Park and after 1400 pictures we still feel like our pictures could never capture the memories we were blessed to experience. This home was the base for our creating memories that will always be the foundation of Montana for us. We wanted for nothing!!! A Cabin filled with all the comfort of a home. A beautiful deck that provided a view that a magazine couldn't capture and a solid foundation for hearts filled with memories. A true blessing of Nature this home, the scenery and Nature offered to us. I learned that Alaska holds a major part of my heart but thank you to Steve, Kathy and The Glacier Chalet for allowing Montana to be placed right beside Alaska!!! ♡♡♡♡
