Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a wonderful trip here. I LOVE your home!!! It is so cozy and open! I love the view, yard and have already seen a beautiful deer wander through the back yard! Oh and a hummingbird too!!! We picked the perfect home for us! My (adult) kids already told me I did a great job finding your home and Glacier NP is definitely the most beautiful place I have ever seen! We have hiked every day and so far the Grinnel Glacier was my favorite... Simply breath taking! I actually teared up when I saw it! We have seen bear, moose, goats, sheep, elk, marmot and your back yard deer!!! Your home is perfect for us! I just love it! We could not have asked for a nicer place to call home while we have been away! Oh and one of the main reason I picked the beginning of August was for the wild flowers....the meadows have been full of color! Exactly what I was hoping for and more beautiful than I expected!

I am so sad to leave your home and the beautiful mountains and meadows that we have enjoyed so much! Thank you for sharing your home with us...if I ever move here a duplicate of your house would be a dream come true."

peaceful retreat near Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 enjoyed 6 days at this private and spacious cabin on 2 acres. The house had all the modern conveniences we are used to (except for A/C and a waste disposal unit in the sink) and had a beautiful view of a lovely grassy lawn and forest from the living room and kitchen. The lack of A/C was not a problem, even in mid-July, as the temperature rapidly cooled off at sunset. We had fun with a campfire in the fire pit and identifying all the constellations in brilliant display at night. Plus, the cabin is only a 10 minute drive from the west entrance to Glacier National Park, where we went each day to experience the amazing scenery and wildlife. This house had the perfect combination of proximity to the park and privacy, and rates as one of the best vacation rentals (out of many) that we have stayed at. Heather, the host, was in touch both at the start and end of our stay to be sure that things were OK. Overall, I rate it an outstanding and memorable experience.

Beautiful private home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Heather's home, it had everything we needed! Don't buy bear spray until you check their stock, there was plenty there to borrow during our stay, especially as you likely won't use it (but should hike with it!). The home had the very best stocked kitchen of any rental I have ever used.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time share! We love to cook and spend time in the kitchen as a family. I am happy you appreciated the kitchen, too! Yes~ most often we have bear spray to use. It can be difficult to travel with bear spray, so I am happy you mentioned it! Than you again ~ and keep in touch should you visit our "neck of the woods" in the future. Best ~ Heather & Alex

Great location for access to Glacier Park

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 days at Heather and Alex's home in Coram and had a great time. Their place makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in. Very well appointed with every thing you could possibly need for cooking. The location was great for our day trips to Glacier National park as your are only a few minutes away from the West Glacier entrance.

We had a great time and would come back in a heart beat.

Perfect house for our family

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house very near the entrance of Glacier National Park in West Glacier! Perfect location and size for our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids). The house was fully stocked (even with shampoo, soap, toilet paper, ziplocks, plenty of towels, kitchen stuff, etc), super clean, and had great wifi. Our kids loved the backyard with play set, play house, and back porch for board games outside. The grocery just down the street was more than adequate, but there are also plenty of yummy restaurants nearby. Very easy to get to and just extremely comfortable - we felt right at home. We'll definitely stay here again if we ever get back to Glacier National Park!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words!!!! Makes me smile to read your review. I love knowing your kids enjoyed the backyard & playset. And I am so happy you felt comfortable and "at home" while away from home! I believe that is what VRBO is all about... finding a home away from home. Thanks again for choosing ours! ~ Heather & Alex

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, the house is in perfect location to the West Glacier entrance and also to the different restaurants in Columbia Falls. Heather was very organized with the reservations and making sure we knew everything we needed to about the house. I didn't notice there was no ac when I booked it and it was 90+degrees during our stay but it did cool down a ton at night and there was more than enough fans to help keep us comfortable. We would recommend it and would also stay again. Thanks for the hospitality!

Great location! Great home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and very comfortable. We enjoyed the fire pit and the grill. It's an easy 5-10 minute drive to the west entrance of the park which was very handy! The home had all the utensils we needed and were all in great shape. Thank you for being so accommodating and quick to answer question Heather! We would definitely stay at your home again.

Conveniently located just outside Glacier National Park, Coram, Montana allows travelers the scenic tranquility of Northwest Montana while providing necessary comforts. Local restaurants, lounges, and grocery store allow guests to focus their time exploring Glacier National Park, Hungry Horse Reservoir, Flathead National Forest, and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. All of which create the feeling that you are living in a postcard!

Families who enjoy biking while on vacation will find miniature golf and pizza a short ride from our home. Take your bikes into Glacier National Park and enjoy many biking trails and paved paths. (Going to Sun Road is a must-see ~ by bike or car!)

If you wish to venture further than 15 minutes, we suggest a visit to Bigfork, MT on gorgeous Flathead Lake (the largest natural lake west of Mississippi); a 45 minute drive south. Or visit downtown Whitefish, MT for quintessential small town shopping and eateries; a 30 minute drive west.

We will provide a detailed list of 'Things to Do' upon arrival. {Including helicopter tours!}

Allow our home to be your vacation home in the heart of spectacular Northwest Montana!
