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.

Beautiful view, amazing cabin, great host!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin really wow'd us, it is so well made. The finishes are beautiful and cozy. I was worried about no air conditioning with 95 degree temperatures but the cabin stays nice and cool without it. Just keep windows shut when it starts to warm up. I couldn't see where you would easily walk to the creek and there really isn't anywhere to walk and explore right out your door. We loved the easy access to all that North Glacier has to offer and the Polebridge community. I was hesitant to leave a review because I don't want this cabin to get popular and never be able to book or afford it again. It really was a great time and Mary was so nice I have to leave the review- it is the right thing to do!

The shower is great, excellent pressure and the beds are comfy. My boys didn't want to share a bed so an air mattress on the floor downstairs worked great. There is also plenty of room for an air mattress in the bedrooms if you prefer. The deck was a great refuge with coffee in the morning. We BBQ'd dinner there too. I could really just sit back and soak in the view, the pictures are accurate. Be ready for a dirty car as all access around the area are dirt roads. Up for off the beaten path adventure? This is a great place!

Awesome cabin with an amazing view, I wouldn't change a thing

  • 5 of 5

Modern, comfortable new cabin with an incredible view. We sat for hours on the deck, reading and enjoying the view. If I could upload pictures of the view I would. The pictures on the website are not photo shopped. The view is that good.

We purposefully wanted to get away from the crowds and used this cabin as our base camp to explore the Polebridge area. Then we went for day hikes near Bowman Lake & Kintla Lake. We enjoyed having a modern well equipped kitchen. Some nights we ate in Polebridge (5 minutes up the road), other nights we cooked in the cabin.

We loved how quiet it was. Saw deer walking along the woods behind the cabin. Overall it is a terrific location and excellent cabin. The caretaker Sam was also helpful. We enjoyed talking with him and appreciated his help and advice.

Couple things to keep in mind. There are 3 cabins. The cabin next to ours was empty until our last day but even then we never heard them. Also you are about 100 yards from the 'main road' to Polebridge. You will have cars and trucks driving down the road. Speaking of the road, be prepared to drive on miles and miles of dirt road. The 'main road' is smooth, not many ruts but extremely dusty. There is a sign in Polebridge that says "dust is a 4 letter word". We agree.

None of these points would stop me from renting the cabin again. To me it adds to the adventure. Just wanted you to know.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and practically new cabin perfect for two people. Well appointed and comfortable. Two other cabins are right next to it making it a perfect spot for a family vacation. We had planned a trip to Bowman Lake the first day but, we're treated to a huge thunderstorm that lasted most of the day. The view of the mountains and storm that day will be remembered! The Polebridge Mercantile is only a mile away and worth a trip for their baked goods.

Secluded newer cabin outside of Polebridge.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, clean remote cabin in Pole Bridge, 45 minutes outside of the west entrance of glacier national park, with beautiful mountain views. If you want to unwind, and unplug, this is a great spot. As stated on the vrbo site, cabin has no tv, and we never could get the wifi to work, but we acclimated, even playing the board games available in the cabin. A few extra pillows would have been very useful. Waking up to the sight of mountains is always a great start to your day. You should absolutely check out the Pole Bridge Mercantile just a ways down the road...incredible and delicious hot sandwiches!

Perfect spot for young family!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is exactly what was promised!! Pristine views and solitude (except for the two cabins on either side). New and clean and just what we were looking for!! We LOVED Polebridge- it was exactly what we wanted, off the grid and pure. We would definitely return again! Our boys were 5 and 6 and we had a magical time just being in nature, exploring (and avoiding bears) and being together as a family undistracted by the world.

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!
