Property description

This house is perfect for your Glacier Park experience and has no cleaning fees. It was owned by the direct descendant of one of the first train porters in East Glacier. A hundred years ago Myron Chase made the adventurous trip to work for the railroad through this wild land. Decades later, his kids continued to live and raise further generations in this beautiful town. We are proud to take care of the same house that Byron Chase loved so much.
Just read our reviews to know that this is the ideal, affordable home while you visit Glacier National Park. We enjoy offering a chance to explore this amazing landscape and return to a comfortable and inviting home without breaking your bank. Let us help plan your visit with hiking, fishing, exploring advice as you request.
Nestled in the town of East Glacier with unmatched access to all corners of Glacier National Park, as well as thousands of acres of wilderness land to the south. This area offers world class fishing, hiking and photography. The house is located just one block from the famous Seranos Restaurant and minutes from the nearest Glacier Park entrance. We love sharing this area with enthusiastic travelers and are at your disposal for information about the area and help planning your trip. In fact, if your lucky, you might catch Smiles on his way to the local trout hole, I am sure he wouldn't mind if you "tag along". If planned ahead, we would be happy to show you some of our favorite places for fishing, hiking and berry picking in this wild and amazing land. We also offer access to bear spray, walking sticks, fishing poles and bicycles. So, . . . . . . .
Enjoy the view of the mountains while relaxing in a reclined lawn chair after a long day in the park. Bite into bar-b-que grilled burgers and hot dogs while the kids run in the spacious wrap-around yard. Savor the flavor of a Montana cook out with the family gathered around the picnic table.
Once in the house, the living room in your East Glacier home provides ample space and seating to enjoy company, catch a bit of national news on Satellite TV, post pictures from the day by WIFI, or settle in with a movie and/or board game. Else, spend the evening watching the sunset while playing an old fashioned game of horseshoes or strolling around the landscaped gardens.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed as well as its own television and DirecTV. The second bedroom provides a queen bed and a twin bunk. The living area is roomy with a couch, two swivel chairs, satellite television, and family games. The kitchen is fully stocked with the utensils needed to create fantastic meals and a small WASHER/DRYER is also available to help you keep up on vacation laundry.
It is an excellent location for a family, traveling friends or a couple looking to enjoy the area and come home to a comfortable and well equipped house; to spend the evening chatting over a game of HORSE SHOES, watch the sunset over the mountains from the front yard or make a nice dinner while keeping up on world news. For TRAVELERS LOOKING TO FEEL EMBRACED BY THE ADVENTURE OF GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, THIS IS THE PLACE.

Car: Recommended

East Glacier is a great little town with nice shops featuring local pottery, art, wood carving and general Glacier Park gifts. Many restaurants are within a mile walking distance of the house and the entire park, east, west, north or south side, are accessible from this centralized location.

The town of East Glacier sits on the southeast corner of the park. Therefore, West Glacier, the west entrance, is only 1 hour west, St. Maries is less than an hour north and Many Glacier is just over an hour north. Waterton, Glacier's sister park in Canada is also a relatively quick trip at just around 2 hours north.

The Canadian Rockies are extremely majestic with shear cliff faces that inspire awe. I have also heard reports, and have myself seen, abundant wildlife in the general Waterton area. Bring your passport.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi there. My name is Wendy. My story in Glacier National Park starts in 1990 when I visited my brother working in Many Glacier. 6 years later, during the summer of my freshman year in college, I worked in Many Glacier myself. In 2004, I applied for a teaching position in Browning, Mt., home of the Blackfeet Tribe, border of Glacier National Park. I was a full time classroom teacher for over a decade traveling from India to Mexico as well as spending 5 years of that experience teaching in the locale town of Browning. Raised in northern Idaho, I love this area and the activities available here. I now spend my winters chasing my fisherman boyfriend to the Olympic Peninsula in northwest Washington state where we work as salmon and steelhead fishing and Olympic rainforest river guides and I continue to do work with the school system on a less structured basis. We are both avid outdoorsmen and feel fortunate to have found two remarkable places to split our lives. So, come enjoy the wonders of Glacier National Park! And perhaps, come fishing, floating or mushroom foraging with us on the Olympic peninsula this fall/winter!

Why the Owner Chose East Glacier Park, East Glacier Park Village, MT, USA:
This property is a block from a house that I have owned for 12 years and rented through VRBO for 10 years (listing #173195). When this property came listed on the real estate market, I thought it would be a perfect match to my already established rental. Only a block from Seranos Restaurant, it is comfortable and perfect for a vacation to Glacier National Park. Don't tell my other house, but I am growing quite attached to this "newer" property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cute house offers WIFI and Directv. The on-demand hot water system means there is no running out of hot water. (We have had multiple guests vote this "THE BEST SHOWER OF THE TRIP".) It sits on a large lot with a small aspen grove in one corner and plenty of running space for children. The BBQ and PICNIC TABLE are a pleasure in the afternoon and setting sun of the evening, and, it is only ONE BLOCK FROM THE FAMOUS SERANOS RESTAURANT. There are a few nice gardens which I will undoubtedly expand as I love flowers! The feeling one gets from the open space in the yard and the looming mountains not far away is unmatched. Really, Glacier Park is unmatched, and I am lucky to have the opportunity to experience it from this great location, you will be too!
