Minutes To Glacier National Park
About Christie Dunn
We fell in love with Glacier National Park after spending a summer working in the park. We continue to work in & around the park today.
Christie Dunn purchased this Chalet in 2007
Why Christie Dunn chose Columbia Falls
We chose this home for its location to the West Entrance of Glacier National Park. The cabin views amaze us everyday. We also fell in love with its character & history to this area.
What makes this Chalet unique
Wildlife frequent the area daily. You may see the reclusive moose or a deer family wondering by while sitting on the front porch. From here you can listen to the birds sing their tune nightly.

This was our first trip to Montana, and the five of us were not disappointed. We stayed 8 days at the Glacier View Chalet on the Reclusive Moose Cabin's property. The home was clean and well-appointed with a million dollar view from the back porch looking into Glacier National Park. We spent several days dayhiking in Glacier, including the iconic Highline Trail. The scenery is just stunning, and we saw mountain goats, bighorn sheep, a black bear with cub, mule deer, red fox, marmot and white-tail deer. We also spent a full day rafting the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and just taking in the crystal clear waters and solitude. When we weren't doing these activities we would take a down day and just ride the bikes that came with the house a mile down the road to the Blankenship Bridge where the North Fork and the Middle Fork of the Flathead River meet and swim, fish or just explore. At night, we sat in the hot tub and star gazed. We had to wait until around 10:30 pm at that time of the year for it to get dark, but it was well worth the wait since we saw night skies like no other. There is so little light pollution here that we saw clouds of stars like what is seen in astronomy magazines. Several shooting star sightings were a bonus. Christie and Ryan checked in on us on the first day to see if all was OK, and were very helpful in suggesting activities, restaurants, hikes, food shopping and other information, but made sure to give us plenty of privacy also. I would recommend this vacation and property to anyone who loves the outdoors, but would also like to retire to a comfortable home each night. The Big Sky state certainly lived up to its name, and the people here also have big hearts and very friendly. Look forward to coming back again someday.
Perfect Montana Retreat
The Glacier Chalet was the perfect place to call home while visiting Montana. After a long day of hiking or coffee on the back deck, the view was exactly what was needed. All of the amenities inside were modern, yet fit right in with the Montana environment. Our family of 5 fit perfectly with plenty of room. The short drive to the park allowed us to enjoy time with each other without having to spend a lot of time in the car. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and would go back in a heart beat. Thank you for opening your home and making it feel like ours!
My favorite place
Ever since we stayed at the Reclusive Moose I have been pining for our stay and trying to find a way to return.
The house was perfectly appointed with every last detail considered. An amazing kitchen and a great common area. Hands down the best part of the stay was meals ( morning coffee... dinner ) on the deck. A view of the park and wildlife to boot.
Christie was a great host, and we followed her suggestions on where to cool off in the nearby river and lake.
Great locale; not only for access to the West access to Glacier but also to the North Fork area of the park.
I cannot recommend this spot highly enough. So wish that I was back there right now.
Life Is Good
We had 6 adults, our main purpose was to hike Glacier National Park, perfect location for Glacier! Comfortable beds after a long days on the trails. Loved to sit and drink morning coffee on the back porch. Private and seculeded location.
Family Friendly cabin in excellent location!
Our family of 5(2 adults and 3 kids, ages 10, 13,15) loved our stay at Glacier Chalet! Communication with owners were excellent, and we had zero issues with Chalet. Location to West Glacier entrance was excellent(15/20 mins) and several restaurants same distance that were good. Beds were comfortable and it was very clean. Loved waking up to Mountains out our window! Kitchen well supplied and while there was warning that water runs out, we had no issues with 5 people for showers. We timed doing laundry during the day while out. Our favorite part of Chalet was drinking coffee or having a cocktail on the back porch over looking the view. We loved having bikes to take a quick ride to the river for a dip, that was a bonus! Wifi worked well despite being in wilderness, and we would stay here again and again! One of the best homeaway.com properties we have ever had! My kids were sad to leave!
