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 cars on the road or trains passing nearby, like in town. You will hear great horned owls, frogs and coyote. You will not smell trash and see roaming dogs like in town. You will smell fresh, clean air and possibly see one of the friendly neighbors. You will not see buildings or many people, just nature. You will have your own private area. You will constantly have an ever changing 360 degree panoramic view of the horizon. The clouds and colorful skies are astounding with the mountains in view, especially during sunrise and sunset. The nights are particularly peaceful and unique with the cloud-like Milky Way overhead and minimal light pollution. Any night you can watch shooting stars and occasionally see the Aurora Borealis. Moose, deer, rabbits, pine martens and squirrels are commonly seen in the yard. Once in a while you'll see bears, wolves and mountain lions. It is a fantastic place to bird watch. Eagles, hawks, osprey, great horned owls, swallows, mountain blue birds and humming birds are frequently seen. There is great drinking water from a 150' deep well that is feed by an aquifer straight out of Glacier National Park.
Outstanding Lodging at the Doorstep to Glacier!
My wife, parents, and I stayed "In the Midst of Glacier" for 5 nights in September 2018. The location proved to be perfect for us to explore the many wonderful areas on the eastern side of Glacier National Park. There was significant construction in the immediate vicinity of Kiowa Junction that caused 1-20 minute delays, obviously out of control of the owner. The road back to the cabin is nearly 1 mile and very bumpy but passable in about 4-5 minutes from the highway.
Now to the really good stuff - the cabin is just really nice and fitting for a stay in Montana. It has a rustic quality to it while being very modern and upkept. We literally did not see a bug the entire stay. We never lacked hot water for showers, and water pressure and quality was excellent. The cabin's many windows make for a beautiful setting, with hills and mountains surrounding the field. We observed moose on 3 out of 5 mornings in the field right outside the cabin. Be careful of holes in the field, as squirrels, badgers, and other animals burrow in the area. There were also plenty of cows to greet us most days.
The sleeping arrangements were very nice. The coffee pot did not work when we arrived, but the owner was quick to replace it for us to enjoy the rest of our stay. The cabin was comfortable at night with provision of several space heaters. The night sky was truly spectacular as well - even just laying on the sofabed in the sunroom, we were able to see stars and the Milky Way - beautiful!
This really is a great option for staying on the east side, as long as you don't mind the ~5 minute drive along bumpy road from the highway. It was only about 20 minutes to Cutbank, 30 minutes to Two Medicine, 35 minutes to St. Mary, and 1 hour 15 minutes to Many Glacier or Logan Pass.
This will certainly be a lodging consideration for future trips to the park, and we highly recommend considering it for your stay as well!
Peacefulness close to Glacier
The cabin was very nice, very clean. James has thought of everything we could need throughout the cabin. The kitchen was full of pots and pans to prepare our meals, enough dishes, coffee mugs and silverware. In my opinion the bathroom had the best window to look out at Glacier, as well as it having a wonderful hot shower to use after our hikes. We enjoyed being close enough to East Glacier Village, Two Medicine, and St. Mary's. James gave us such great recommendations for hikes, places to eat, and had extra maps, bear spray, etc for our hiking trips. We also enjoyed watching the cattle graze around the cabin, walking to the hill behind the cabin to watch sunsets, and looking for other wildlife that might be roaming through the property. I was able to get some great photos of the Milky Way since we are away from any city lights. I appreciate the long driveway to be away from everything but its ruts, bumps, and dips became tiring.
Overall it was a great stay.
We loved our stay. The views were wonderful and we felt so at peace there. We saw a moose, deer, different types of birds, and even had cows sleeping in the backyard when we woke one morning. Besides for our wonderful stay, James was awesome from my first email to him and always quick to answer my many questions. We would definitely stay there again.
Very peaceful and quiet. Beautiful scenery
It was a short stay but very nice. Clean and taken care of, very rustic and updated at the same time. I would definitely recommend to others
We loved it! Very well appointed house in beautiful, peaceful surroundings!
The house was great. James has thought of everything to make his guests' stay comfortable. The property is beautiful, peaceful and a wonderful quiet place to come home to after an active day in Glacier NP!
This property offered everything someone could need out of a secluded get away. The cabin was clean and well stocked. The views were breath taking and James was incredibly helpful with suggestions of the surrounding area. I highly recommend this place and will hopefully be visiting again in the future.
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.
