Property type house


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Our Timber Framed Guest Cottage is a very sweet cozy place completely furnished for your comfort. It has one bedroom and a large loft area with another queen bed and one twin bed to sleep up to 5 people total. There is a gas fireplace and large gas grill on the back deck. Bathroom is small but sweet with a claw foot tub to soak in if desired or shower with enclosed curtain.

The cottage is located in a very quiet area of town on the edge of an aspen grove and field of wild flowers. It is just one block off the main road through town and is walking distance to a variety of services and shops - restaurants, antiques, golf, groceries, car rentals, AmTrak train station (summer season only), horseback riding, and shuttle services to all hiking tails and lodges within Glacier National Park (summer season only).

It can also be a great winter get away if you like to cross country ski, back country skiing and snowboarding. Essex is a 1/2 hour drive that offers miles of groomed xc ski trails - classic and skate.

The cottage shares a very large yard with our other rental home right next door (VRBO listing # 328250). It is an ideal setting if traveling with a large group or multiple families. There are yard games to enjoy as well: badmitten, croquet, volleyball, soccer, etc. We also have a few bicycles available for your use - single speed 'townie' type bikes to roam around the town of East Glacier on.

We are in a great location to come and explore Glacier National Park all four seasons. Come relax and enjoy the town of East Glacier Park and the national park while staying in our cottage.

Lovely vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The cottage is warm and homey with a well supplied kitchen, a fabulous shower head, comfortable beds, a cozy living room, and quiet surroundings. A softer light over the table might be nice. With so many windows, we got a nice little breeze in the bedroom and in the loft - wonderful for sleeping! This trip was our first time staying on the east side of Glacier and I highly recommend the Timber Frame Guest Cottage. It's an oasis. The perfect place to unwind and relax.

Owner's Response: Laurie, thanks for your review and I'm so glad you had a lovely time in Glacier Park and at our cottage. I also appreciate the feedback about lighting above the table and will look into trying to improve that.

Loved the property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most perfect little cabin for exploring East Glacier. The on-site property manager, Marty was wonderful giving us hiking and restaurant recommendations. We loved the cottage setting. The well furnished back patio overlooked a wooded area. The weather was nice enough that we enjoyed cocktails and even made dinner to eat outside one night. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and all the stuff you don't want to buy for one use - spices, olive oil, condiments etc.

The bed was super comfy as were the leather couches. Also very cute decorating touches.

We would love to rent this cottage even if we weren't exploring the park!

Cozy, private cottage w/ easy access to East Glacier

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I recently stayed here & we absolutely loved it! It was exactly what we were looking for in a cottage in East Glacier. It was nicely appointed with comfy beds, full kitchen & access to laundry if we needed it after a long day of hiking.

Marty, the property manager, was very responsive & super helpful when we had questions about what hikes to do. We'd definitely stay here again & would recommend to anyone looking for a place in East Glacier to stay at.

Great location for East Glacier. Cottage couldn't have been better for the two of us. Location is also convenient for a day trip to Waterton Lake N. P. We enjoyed talking with Marty about the area and other things. Highly recommended.

The property was very well kept and beautiful. We had a pieceful stay and there was a lot to do. The girls rode the bikes every day all over town when they first woke up. Marty the on-site manager was very friendly and we enjoyed chatting with him, he was also very helpful with tips of the area. Thank you so much and we hope to come back again maybe during a winter stay sometime.
