About Jeff and Kelly Fear

Both of us have shared a love for the outdoors and an affinity for the Northwest. We have experienced some unique locations in our travels but nothing of this kind. We have a passion for camping, rafting, backpacking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking and mountain biking. We are a hard working, honest and respectful family. We spent the summer of 2013 completely renovating our cabin and are not afraid to invest sweat equity. We are personable, enjoy serving people and want to share this exclusive part of Montana with like-minded guests.

Jeff and Kelly Fear purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jeff and Kelly Fear chose Glacier Country

Our family was looking for that distinctive Montana vacation property for ourselves, friends, family and our guests. We wanted a place remote, serene and accessible to a part of Montana that embodies the rugged outdoor adventure. We chose this cabin in Polebridge, MT because it accentuates all of those attributes including panoramic views of the Whitefish Mountain Range and Livingston Mountain Range of Glacier National Park (GNP). Situated on the west side of GNP, you have access to trails, lakes, rivers, forests, meadows, mountains and the park. We always wanted to own an 'off the grid' property and have the ability to escape for a weekend not spending half of it in the car. Polebridge is a one of a kind, out of the way location which has an almost timeless feel. We call it 'Little Alaska'. If you are seeking a connection with your adventurous outdoor spirit and wish to make unforgettable memories in a natural environment we want to help you achieve that desire.

What makes this cabin unique

The log cabin has a rustic feel inside and out. Assembled from logs directly in the Polebridge area it was constructed in 1981. We completely renovated the exterior by sanding, refinishing and chinking the logs in the summer of 2013. A charming full covered front porch and partial covered rear porch accent this ranch style cabin, perfect for lounging out of the sun. Placed in a meadow, full circle views of beautiful mountain ranges and an uninhibited night sky sets this cabin apart. This is a spacious cabin at 1200 sq. ft. with a large living room. Tongue and groove pine wall and ceiling accents and many updates including new stove, faucets, beds, mattresses and kitchen floor are a few of the amenities offered. However, the best amenity for any 'off the grid' property is a full functioning bathroom. A running sink, flushing toilet and a hot shower after your day outside is real commodity! Just a short walk to the iconic and historical Polebridge Mercantile and the Northern Lights Saloon. Approx. 1 mile to the Polebridge North Fork River launch access and the Bowman, Kintla Lake Ranger Station. 30 minutes to the west entrance of GNP and Apgar Village. Many different outdoor activities make this property any outdoor enthusiast will appreciate.

This cabin and the Polebridge area are extraordinary.

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to speak highly of our time in Polebridge as I would hate to see a large influx of folks ruin the remote community atmosphere of this place. The cabin is pristine, has all you need, and is in a beautiful place. The people of Polebridge are friendly characters with a strong sense of place. We truly loved our time there. We can't thank the Fears enough for sharing their cabin with us.

Best home in Polebridge

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed all the amenities of home away from the crowds and with stunning views of the peaks of Glacier. The kitchen is loaded with everything you need to prepare meals for 6 people. The fridge is on the smaller side, but was more than enough for our group. Jeff and Kelly have stocked the home with games and books, including interesting historical accounts of Glacier National Park. The grill, two decks, and comfy chairs made for awesome evenings watching the sunset and sharing stories from the adventures of the day.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I am torn about my review because if I tell the truth everyone will want to stay here and I would love to be able to book again soon. Obvious pride in ownership is evident in this comfortable getaway and the attention to detail left us lacking nothing for a perfect weekend socializing with friends. The location is one of those sublime mountain spots on earth.

Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a few days in early August and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We had previously fallen in love with Polebridge and wanted to be within walking distance of the Merc during our visit. We took many short walks to pick up freshly baked pastries or cookies at this famous hot-spot. We also enjoyed lounging on the back porch, eating at the large picnic table in the backyard and gazing at the stars from the front porch after dark. The cabin is clean and spacious, and boasts outstanding views of the mountains. We felt relaxed and comfortable during our visit and look forward to our next stay!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 1 year old son stayed at the cabin in the middle/end of August and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable and memorable experience. We were joined by my sister, and three of my closest friends from childhood who all now live scattered across the country. It was the perfect place for a reunion with old friends. One of these friends lives in Missoula and we asked him where should we stay when we go out to Montana. Without skipping a beat he said you have to go to Polebridge. We found this cabin and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The drive in was breathtaking, the proximity to Glacier was so easy to wake up and go do some fun day hikes, and even one day we just hung out at he cabin and relaxed. It was unbelievably peaceful. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for allowing my family and friends to build some really amazing lasting memories we won't soon forget!
