About the Property
2 Bedroom/2 Bath (sleeps 4) Home Just Steps Away From Glacier National Park!
PLEASE NOTE* The internet speed at the home is .785 MB and all that is available in the West Glacier area for anyone. This speed allows you to watch the Netflix provided and use your devices. However, if you are in need of high speed internet you will find it the farther you get from the park. Hungry Horse, 10 miles away, offers 10MB internet speed. So, you have a trade off as with all things in life. If you want the convenience to be 2 miles from West Glacier Park entrance gate please do not have the expectation of rapid fast internet. This is a remote area, some of the highest peaks of the Continental Divide, and we even have a waiting list for phone/internet lines, so we are very happy to have what we have! The cell phone service works great at the home, but you will not have any cell service in the park.
Geothermal air conditioning or heat is available for your comfort, whatever the season. Plush wine colored leather sofa and love seat provide comfort in the great room. Custom made locally crafted log night stands, with drawers for your personal items, are next to each side of the king size beds. This home is designed with your convenience and privacy in mind - basically two separate suites with their own entrances and baths to accommodate up to four guests in your traveling group. The home is all one level so there are no stairs to traverse, or lofts. Each bedroom has it's own entrance so you can come and go as you please. A hallway door closes off one bedroom and bath from the rest of the home. Your luxury baths include 6 foot tubs with grab bars if you need some extra balance. Premium king size Sealy Posturepedic beds await, ready to provide the rest and comfort you'll need for your exploration of paradise! Bedrooms offer extra deep closets with sliding mirror doors. Each room of the home has a view of the woods and the privacy that surround the home.
There are many restaurants in the area or just cook your own meals in your new kitchen. The large pantry will give you extra space. Enjoy the morning sun from your breakfast table in the separate dining room. When you return from your day of adventure, dine or barbecue with a view of the sunset, relax in the great room, plan your next day from the library showcasing the area, or just kick back and watch the local news or a great movie. Glacier Park is so close you can even return home to prepare lunch or return for a beautiful evening at Lake McDonald after dinner. Take a swim in warm Lake Five nearby or a whitewater trip with any of the raft companies who will give you an unforgettable experience on the river wild! Historic Belton Chalet, the first lodge built near Glacier Park in 1910, is 1 1/2 miles from the home and has incredible fine dining, a great cozy pub, an a warm fireplace to take care of any of those chilly evenings.

Your cabin in the woods is located in a private area 1 1/2 miles from West Glacier, entrance to Glacier National Park. You can depart your mountain retreat and walk to restaurants, a bistro, or fine dining at the historic Belton Chalet and Pub. West Glacier offers raft companies, a grocery store, gas stations, and even a post office to send those post cards home. Isaac Walton, sitting on the Continental Divide, is a worthwhile trip on the south side of Glacier Park, featuring a railroad stop, complete with boxcars and a theme pub and restaurant with photos of the rich history surrounding the area. Hungry Horse Dam is only 10 miles from the home; this is the 11th largest dam in the world and is worth seeing. You can actually ride up and down in an elevator inside of the dam itself! Drive over the dam and enter the Bob Marshall Wilderness and the 50 mile long reservoir that holds the snow melt and moisture eventually flowing into the Pacific Ocean. The San Suz Ed is a mile from the cabin, a mainstay in the area, featuring mouthwatering specialties that you will just have to try for yourself. Lake McDonald Lodge is minutes away, so you can listen to the piano bar or take a cruise on the lake that is offered at the Lodge. An easy boardwalk adventure awaits at the Trail of the Cedars. Ask the owner any questions you may have.
About the owner: I was born in Whitefish, Montana. My family owned and operated the Hungry Horse Motel for 30 years, so I grew up 10 miles from Glacier National Park. What a playground! I purchased this never lived on, densely wooded property in West Glacier in 1994, always having the dream to build a vacation home. Finally! In 2013, West Glacier Vacation Home opened. I hope my dream will be part of your dream!
Why the Owner Chose West Glacier, MT, USA:
I chose this location to build a home on because of it's proximity to Glacier Park. There are so many things to enjoy here seasonally. Ride bikes, walk, or hike on the Going to the Sun Highway in the spring before it is open to vehicles. Spring ski at Logan Pass and be mesmerized. X-C Going to the Sun in the winter and see unbelievable views and quiet that is unsurpassed. I want to share it with you - this area has so much to offer. It is spectacular!
