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.

The cottage was wonderful. Even in "off" season, we found the location convenient to the wonderful hikes of East Glacier National Park.

Thank you Colleen and Marty!

Despite the smoke, we enjoyed our stay at Timber Frame Guest Cottage in East Glacier. The location was great in relationship to the park and we could walk to several good restaurants. Would definitely recommend and come back!
