Kintla is located on Numa Peak, more than 20 acres of pristine forest and meadow, less than 3 miles from the Bowman Lake Entrance of Glacier National Park. There are 4 log cabins (Kootenay, Kintla, Ptarmigan and Siyeh) all with amazing views into the northern peaks of Glacier National Park. You look right into the midst of the mountains from the entire living room area, upstairs master bedroom and the front deck. Kintla has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. There is a full bath, fully equipped kitchen, and a combined dining and living room area with a wood stove. There is a large front deck with bistro style table and chairs looking into Glacier National Park. The master bedroom is the full top floor with two foot knee walls and includes a private sitting area. Log accents abound throughout the cabin from the log supports and peak log in the master bedroom to the stairway. Haycreek runs year round and is situated on the south side of the property. It is home to the endangered Bull Trout.
During one of our many family visits up into the Glacier National Park area, we were driving down the North Fork Road and saw a small 'for Sale' sign next to the road. We couldn't believe that someone would be selling a plot of land so close to this pristine land! We whipped our car around so fast and met with a wonderful couple who had raised their family on that property for many many years. It was simple decision. For the next twenty years, my children, Kira, Ian and Tris spent many glorious days hiking, fishing, rafting, climbing, and playing in the snow (Glacier snow + three kiddos = ridiculously impressive snow forts). Our addition onto the original cabin was meant to be a place where they could all return with their families one day. Eventually the idea came about to share the property with other people who would love the quiet and splendor that this wonderful valley offers.

Numa Peak has the advantage of privacy and quiet but also with close proximity to both Glacier National Park and the township of Polebridge. The convenience to food, music and diverse company often from all over the world with the ability to return quickly home to a quiet haven is just too good to be true. It is difficult to describe the beauty, the smell...just the feel of being in the middle of nature at its best
The Numa Peak property continues to surprise us all year long with its extreme range of beauty. The summers are warm and dry filled with beautiful plants, grasses, and roaming wildlife. The winters are fierce and majestic, with pine trees becoming snow ghosts and a few lonesome footprints in the snow, a grand feeling of seclusion sets in. It doesn't matter what time of year, this place becomes an escape for our family, a place to unwind and remind ourselves of how simple and beautiful life can truly be. It would be selfish to keep this gem hidden from others so we invite you to stay and experience it all for yourself, be it adventure or a eve for stargazing.
Had a great time and the cabin was perfect! Comfortable beds with an amazing view and easy access to Polebridge and Glacier Park.
I liked the seclusion and remoteness but yet close access to glacier.
Unfortunately we lost electricity a coupe of times and I had meds that needed refrigeration . Only suggestion is auto back up generator
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and feel in love with the place and area. Sam (the manager) was very helpful and went above and beyond. Since Polebridge is so remote they don't have trash service so it is on the people staying to remove the trash themselves and Sam noticed we had a small car and generously offered to take our trash in the back of his truck to town at the end of our trip!
The views from the cabin are spectacular and we spend hours upon hours sitting in the living room with the wood burning stove going and watching the deer and other animals outside the windows from the living room. The place is also very comfortable and I personally think it looks better in person than in the photos. The location of cabin is a little remote (but isn't that one of the points :) ) , but it's an easy drive to get to the highlights of the park.
My wife and I have even talked about going back we loved it so much, but to bring our families and rent one of two of the other cabins that are next door!
My wife, daughter and I spent a wonderful week at the Kintla cabin. The accomodations were very comfortable and the views are amazing. Excellent location to explore the Northwest side of the Park, with a relatively short drive to many central Park highlights. We will be back.
Numa Peak is nestled in a small strip of private land between the Whitefish National Forest and Glacier National Park. It is considered the most remote valley remaining in the continental USA. It is home to an abundance of wildlife including Grizzly and Black Bears, Mountain lions, Moose, Elk, Wolves, Deer, and Big Horn Sheep. All the activities available in Glacier National Park are just a step away. In addition to the hiking, backpacking, fly fishing, wildlife, canoeing, rafting, biking, photography, etc... Numa Peak is in close proximity to golf, tennis, horseback riding and more. As Numa Peak is 35 miles up the North Fork Road from major civilization, when the sun disappears, so does the light! The result is a superb panorama of stars you may have never seen. Stargazing is a must!
