Unique, secluded getaway with a view

  • 4 of 5

Ty's place is an interesting deer camp-style cabin. Check-in and check-out was very simple and easy. The view from the deck is beautiful, and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need. We were able to meet the host when he came to work on his shop and he is a very likeable guy.

Perfect Glacier National Park house

  • 5 of 5

Great location away from the hustle and bustle of the park but still very close so it's easy to access the park when exploring. The views were spectacular and the house felt like a private lodge.

We stayed for 5 nights, the last week of June 2017. We only had one problem during our stay, which was a major one...We didn't stay long enough!!! Our advice would be: how ever long you are planning to stay, double it.

The location is perfect. You are 20min from Glacier park entrance (Apgar) and from Columbia Falls (town with everything you need). You are also really close to the Polebridge park entrance (the least frequented part of Glacier) and the Flathead Nat. Forest with the North and Middle Fork Flathead River. And as close as you are to all of this, you wont see a soul at Ty's home.

The home has everything you will ever want and need. And the home may be off the grid, but you will never know you are. As long as you don't bring your city slicker A/C with you, you will never run out electricity. You have all the hot water you want too. The stove, fridge, bedroom fireplace, outdoor grill, and outdoor firepit are all propane. There is also a traditional firepit outside off the deck too. Be careful when using open flame outside! There wasn't any fire restrictions during our stay, but you should inquire with Ty, so you know what to expect. Even if there was a restriction, it would be a minor detail and shouldn't alter plans of staying at this home.

Don't miss the opportunity to stay at Ty's Teakettle Mountain Ranch. He is one of the very few who opens up their "Montana's best kept secret" to the outside world.

Thanks Ty!

Very peaceful and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being able to come back to a quiet house after a long day of hiking. About a 20 minute drive on a gravel dirt road to the west entrance of the GNP. Off the grid was okay just took a little getting use to. A coffee maker or stove top coffee pot would of been nice. The grill and outdoor fire pit was great. There was a screen on the sliding door but no way to open windows, we had nice weather 70's but it did warm up in the living room with the sun through the big windows. Overall we were happy.

Amazing views at this unique property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed returning to this place each day after exploring Glacier National Park. It was about a 20 min. drive to the West entrance. The view from the deck is stunning, so we had dinners and s'mores there every night. The solar power provided all the electricity we needed, and it was fun to see how much we used each day. Ty answered all our questions and took care of all our needs. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

we had a wonderful time in this comfortable and relaxing cabin amidst the beauty of nature

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 nights at Ty's wonderful cabin and can not express enough how wonderful it was - from the cozy cabin, amazing deck just waiting for wine and dinner, watching the sunsets and the storms from all over the cabin, and access to the amazing nature nearby. Ty's place was centrally located to everything we did from going to Polebtidge to kyack Kintla Lake, fishing the rivers and lakes, relaxing at Lake 5, and spending lots of time in Glacier National Park. We ran hard each day and we so happy to have the comfort of this cabin to relax in afterwards. Thank you Ty for sharing with us. We will be back.
