About Mary Bassingthwaighte
The photo above is a picture of my sons, Tristan and Ian, sledding off the side of our generator shed in 1996.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.
Mary Bassingthwaighte purchased this Cabin in 1994
Why Mary Bassingthwaighte chose Polebridge
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
What makes this Cabin unique
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.
Great place to stay!
Great cabin! Clean, cozy, comfortable! Off the beaten path but close to park entrance. Saw lots of wild life including a grizzly who came to forage in the field.
Beautiful views. Comfortable, clean cabin. We would rent it again.
Picturesque hardly describes the tranquility
It’s evident a ton of thought went in to planning these cabins. From the solar power, hot water for showers, gas grill tapped directly into the main propane source, and general efforts at sustainability.
Polebridge was a nice get away from the normal park traffic, we got up early and did a few hikes and saw no other hikers. Being several miles up a dirt road keeps away most folks and makes for a much quieter park experience. Plus you’re only ~40 min from apgar so you can get into the main park attractions pretty quickly. In short, Tag on a few nights here to escape the crowds and check out the mercantile if you don’t feel like cooking.
The view from the living room and porch can’t be topped. We saw deer wandering in front of the house most mornings.
For those who are concerned about being off the grid: there is ample power for lightning, fans, coffee makers, and other basics. The mountain air at night is more than sufficient to cool the house. Shut the windows in the morning to keep the house cool all day. You don’t come to glacier for the blazing WiFi but in a pinch you can grab emails from the back bedroom and get enough bandwidth to tell your boss you’ll get back to them when you return.
These cabins are new, clean and well appointed. Since Polebridge is off the grid it is amazing to have hot water, refrigeration and all the conveniences of the modern world in such a remote location. They have a solar array so are generating their own electricity to supply the cabins. The view cannot be beat! Tina was very helpful and greeted us upon our arrival. She even mailed a pair of glasses I left in the cabin to back me. There is wireless available but its pretty spotty, it was nice to just disconnect from the internet quite frankly.
overall....the cabin and surrounding areas are nice...removed from most people although the road near the cabin is very busy with rafters and those going to Polebridge.
Taking the long gravel road to the cabin area is not good for cars and was a hassle.
Traveling through Glacier Park and connecting to the better part of the gravel road works, but was not the way our navigation took us (not the shortest route) and not the way suggested by the owner.
The person on site is very nice and helpful. She made our stay more comfortable.
Remote but not too remote
A very nice modern cabin just the right distance away from the crowds. About 45 minutes from the East Glacier entrance and just a few minutes from the small town of Polebridge. And just a a few minutes from the Polebridge ranger station which also has some terrific hiking trails. The owner and manager were very responsive but we really did not need anything while we were there. The views from the porch are wonderful; great mornings and great star gazing if you can stay up that late! The Wi-fi was very minimal, but you should not be using Wi-fi if you really want to get away from things anyway! We grilled every night with a terrific modern gas grill. Just make sure to stock up on food in Columbia Falls. If we go back to Glacier, we will definitely stay here!
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!
