Our mountain cabin has been completely remodeled- new beds, furniture, appliances, cabinets, flooring, bathroom, TV, BBQ, and deck furniture.

The cabin is located 18 minutes West of East Glacier and 10 minutes East of Essex. Property is 1/2 mile off of U.S. #2. The Southern border of the lot is the Great Bear Wilderness. With a view of Glacier Park out the front window.

The cabin is very private with a creek running thru the back and Deer, Elk, and Moose often visible from the back deck. Although Private, the cabin has all the comforts: Satellite TV and cell service. The Snow Slip Restaurant is only 2 miles away with Wi-Fi, excellent food and ale.

During the winter months, the road is kept plowed with 100 yards of the cabin so it becomes a great retreat for skiers and snowmobilers. With private runs behind the cabin and Mt. Sheels, Elk Mt. and Snow Slip Mt. right out the front window.

This is a very exclusive, private cabin, one of a kind with all Glacier Park has to offer, within minutes of the front porch.

Backwoods quiet in comfort

  • 5 of 5

We were quite presently surprised by the luxurious amenities provided inside the cabin and made full use of the well equipped kitchen and laundry machines. While it was nice for us to be "disconnected" from the world for a few days. Our families were getting worried. On sunny days like we had, I recommend running the ceiling fan to even out the temperature differential between the warm upstairs loft on the chilly downstairs. Cabin is well insulated the only noise is coming from the fridge, the ceiling fan and the freight trains rumbling in the distance.

Location near the southern tip of Glacier requires quite a bit of driving to take in the sights of Glacier. We would have liked to have explored the Forest Reserve without driving right from the cabin, but didn't feel prepared. It might be good to include information on local hiking trails in the reading material in the cabin.

A Beautiful Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I stayed in the cabin for three nights. This is the most beautiful cabin I've ever seen! The cabin and everything in it looks brand new and is soooo clean. The directions were perfect and the hosts, Sahm and Robert, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful with the many questions I had before the trip.

I was hoping to see wildlife while we stayed at the cabin and I wasn't disappointed - a deer in the front yard one evening, a moose wandering across the backyard one morning, and a young grizzly bear on the side of Hwy. 2 when we were driving back from the park!

I highly recommend this cabin!!

Beautiful Secluded Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely amazing! Secluded, but close enough to drive to experience all of the beauty of Glacier National Park. The second morning there a bear ran past the deck and we watched it play in the wild flowers. Thanks Sahm and Robert for sharing your beautiful cabin!

Who wouldn't love it?

  • 5 of 5

You will love this cabin unless you don't love the following: Warm and friendly people, a cabin that is an architectural masterpiece and proximity to the most beautiful county in the continental U.S. For you city dwellers who don't like to get wet or dirty, there are endless no-blisters tourist treasures from Glacier National Park to a few fine dining opportunities. You can see amazing things without ever leaving pagement. For those of us who came here for the best of what Montana truly has to offer, you are within walking distance of National Park backcountry trails. the Great Bear Wilderness and the Wild and Scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead River. The owners, Gary and Theresa are unforgettable folks who obviously live here because this is where they want to be. Spend some time with them here and they may infect you with their warmth and their enthusiasm for this last best place.

Owner's Response: This review sounds great and sounds like our cabin. BUt.... we did not have guests during this time and our names are not Gary and Theresa. Hope this review gets put on for their cabin. Thanks

A fantastic location to vacation and relax!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin’s spectacular nature is only matched by the surrounding beauty of the mountains. My wife and I stayed here with our two daughters recently, and we were completely sad to have to say goodbye and head back home. The cabin is supremely private, well-constructed and has every comfort any person could ask for in a home away from home.

The location is perfectly situated between East and West Glacier, which makes day trips into either region an absolute breeze. There are plenty of nearby quaint shops to pick up snacks or catch a quick bite to eat. The sound of the stream running behind the cabin is so relaxing, and the views are absolutely amazing.

Sahm and Robert were fantastic, and their recommendations were spot on. THANK YOU!

We had so many great adventures each day with hiking, horseback riding, visiting the lodges and so on, but we always were excited to get back to the cabin and enjoy some quality family time in the warmth of the fire and the rustic cabin setting. The cabin itself is much larger than what a person may think by looking at the pictures. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with the elbow room.

We are already looking at our next Glacier vacation, and we will be sure to stay here again in the near future.

Thanks again Sahm and Robert!!!!
