About James Latyszewski

I was born and raised in Michigan. When I was young I traveled to Yosemite, California and was blown away by the mountains, waterfalls and wildlife. Ever since, I have spent all of my summers near national parks like Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Arches, Acadia and Mesa Verde. In the wintertime I enjoy living in exotic tropical locations.

James Latyszewski purchased this house in 2006

Why James Latyszewski chose Star

This property has an amazing view of the mountains and is centrally located to all four east side entrances into Glacier National Park. It is also conveniently located between St. Mary, Browning and East Glacier. Out of all the places I've lived and visited, this is the most tranquil, peaceful and relaxing.

What makes this house unique

Some benefits for staying here are:

You will not hear the trains in town or vehicles on the road.

You will hear great horned owls and coyote.

You will not see trash and roaming dogs.

You will see the mountains during sunrise, sunset, moonlit nights and dark starry skies.

If you are lucky, you may see the northern lights, bears or even a mountain lion.

Moose, deer, rabbit and squirrel are commonly seen in the yard and eagles, great horned owls, swallows and humming birds are usually around.

There is great drinking water from the tap.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed October 23-27, 2017. Very secluded and beautiful area. The driveway is rough, but it is part of the charm of arriving on the meadow with mountain views. The cabin has everything you need, and is very comfortable. We liked the location, easy drives to both sides of GNP. This time of year, we felt like we had the park all to ourselves. We will definitely be back.

Great location!

Loved the location and the interior. Very nice with everything provided. Loved getting away from other people to our own little oasis. Beautiful views.

The best pace we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a real home from home. It is cosy yet spacious with the most amazing wildlife viewing room. On our last night we had a Moose run through the meadow about 60 yards from us - we couldn't believe our luck! The cabin has everything you could possibly need and is clean and very welcoming, the outdoors is quiet and beautiful. It's an easy 40 minute drive to St Mary's and Many Glacier and even quicker to Two Medicine. As wildfires stopped us from going beyond Logan Pass we have decided to come back for another holiday and will definitely be staying at this cabin. I miss it already. Thanks for an amazing stay James

Little house in the midst of a prairie - Seriously peaceful

  • 5 of 5

First do not let the driveway deter you, it is bumpy yes and thankful we had a four wheel drive vehicle. The house is located in the middle of a prairie with beautiful views of mountain peaks in the distance. It was so quiet there, so peaceful ...very therapeutic. The house is well appointed and we enjoyed having multiple rooms to spend time. The house was clean and in good shape and not far from Two medicines or East Glacier. St Mary is about 30 minutes away. Many Glacier about an hour away. We stayed in 5 different places in and around GNP, and this was our favorite because of its location...out in the middle of no where. James had some bear spray and binoculars there to borrow. Enjoyed walking around the prairie just taking it all in. Would stay here again. Thanks James!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. Only changes I'd make is to cut the meadow! At least an 8 foot perimeter around the cabin. A $20 box fan for the kitchen window would do wonders on cross venalation throughout the cabin. I absolutely burned up every night. We saw zero wildlife. We did go into Browning for initial groceries but never went back, I did not like it. We picked up supplies at St Mary's and East Glacier. Grill at St. Mary's lodge was great! Ate there alot. Cabin was everything we needed besides a cool nights sleep. A $200 window unit would make it heaven. Loved having the washer and dryer! Great cabin, loved the private space and proximity to the park!

Spacious and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property- well located for access to the East side of Glacier NP but away from the tourist hubs of East Glacier and St Mary. We particularly liked the well-equipped kitchen and the wildlife- moose, coyote, hummingbirds, and deer all viewed from the living room window. The owner was very helpful in providing advice, directions and responding to email. Note that there is a 'farm road' to get to the property from the main highway. It's passable in a saloon but requires some careful driving in a rental!

The house is nestled in the foothills of the northern Rockies. You can see nine summits in Glacier National Park from the windows. It is located between three entrances of Glacier; Two Medicine, Cut Bank Creek and St. Mary. The Many Glacier entrance is a one hour drive. In the yard you can frequently spot moose, deer, coyote and occasionally some bears. The house is in the middle of a small field that provides an ever changing 360 degree panoramic view. You can enjoy the sunrises and sunsets, which offer great photo opportunities of the surrounding area.
