It was okay. The problem is that it wasn’t clear that residence was a mobile home.

  • 3 of 5

The trailer is old but in reasonably good shape. The property it’s on is beautiful. I just wish they had made it clear it was a mobile home. The other issue for travelers is that there are few if any alternatives on the east side of Glacier for a property with 3 BRs and 2 baths. The people were nice The kitchen was reasonably equipped. We ended up being glad to be on the east side of Glacier as the Road to the Sun was closed because of fires going up to Logan Pass. We could get to Logan because the east side was open. It would have been a two star if there was any alternatives.

great base-camp

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 2 couples stayed in this home for 5 nights while exploring the east/Canadian side of Glacier NP. The location was perfect for the many glacier and waterton areas, and the ride to St. Mary's entrance wasn't bad either.

We got to meet the old ranch caretakers and the new ones during our stay. Both seemed very nice. The trailer is not fancy, but very functional. The kitchen has everything needed, and the gas grill worked well. We cooked all of our meals while staying here, and didn't have any issues. One thing is to buy groceries before getting there, Browning is the closest location with an okay grocery. We stocked up in Columbia Falls before driving over from the West side of the park.

I will say the king bed in the master bedroom is awful, and should absolutely be replaced. Its so worn out you just end up rolling into the middle. We actually ended up sleeping sideways to make it work a little better, still not good. I'm not a fussy sleeper, but this was bad.

Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the views around the area much because of the fires, until the very last day. Really some beautiful mountains right around the ranch. The animals on the property are very interesting, we enjoyed seeing them coming and going.

Overall this was a great spot for us, and worked out well for our trip.

Best place to stay outside of Glacier

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place we have stayed outside of Glacier. We loved having seperate bedrooms for our adult children, a kitchen and more space to spread out. The place was very clean and comfortable. We loved watching the sunrise and sunset and seeing all of the wildlife that comes through the property. Gene was such a pleasure to talk to and so very helpful with everything. I understand this property will be under new management soon. I hope they keep the same standards.

Perfect location to visit the East side of Glacier NP and Waterton Lakes Provincial Park.

  • 5 of 5

Secluded cabins located on a 160 acre ranch with friendly Llamas and Alpacas. Located minutes from the Many Glacier and St. Mary's entrances to Glacier National park and about 45 minutes from Waterton Lakes Provincial Park in Canada. While there, the meadows in front of our cabin were visited by a herd of Elk twice and daily by a pair of Sand Hill Cranes. The managers are very attentive and interesting to visit with regarding day to day life in northern Montana.

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 5 adults and a 5 year old. The porch was our favorite spot ... the views are out of this world! We had plenty of room in the house without feeling crowded. The kitchen was very spacious and well stocked. Very convenient to St. Mary's and Many Glacier Areas. Just remember to stock up on groceries and supplies before heading into Baab. We would highly recommend this home. Just wish we had more than 2 days.

Thank you Gene & Terri for greeting us upon our arrival. It made us feel very welcome.

Unit was just as advertised. Very nice and comfortable. Caretakers went above and beyond to assist

  • 4 of 5

When we had tire trouble Gene went the extra mile to assist. Beautiful views from deck. Convenient to Many Glacier and St Mary. Recommend this unit to a larger family or two couples with or without a few kids. Clean, comfortable and convenient.
