GENERAL DESCRIPTION - This freshly furnished & decorated vacation home is conveniently located in the village of West Glacier – gateway to Glacier National Park. Glacier Ridge Cabin is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, the Amtrak train depot and dining at the historic Belton Chalet (seasonal). Easy to find, the home sits away from it all on a forested ridge in a small residential area shared by several homes. Out the door you will find miles of Flathead National Forest land to wander on foot, snowshoes or skis.

Glacier Ridge Cabin features a light and airy 1000 sq ft open floor plan with attached garage. The home sleeps up to 4 adults or children. With its exceptional location, recently renovated living spaces, fully-equipped kitchen, cozy gas fireplace, ductless air conditioning, 2 wide screen TV’s with Blu-ray players (Netflix provided), stereo/CD player with Bluetooth connectivity, WIFI, cell signal booster, Foosball table, deck with gas grill, fire pit and floor to ceiling windows, this house is a vacation retreat setting ready for year round fun and vacation memories to last a lifetime. Thoughtful attention to detail, quality and comfort have been paramount in putting together this vacation home for your dream vacation.

Getting a good night's sleep is a key ingredient for the best vacation days, so we have endeavored to create a most comfortable sleep experience for our guests. The king & queen bedrooms both have top-rated Serta mattresses. Beds are furnished with 400TC quality sheets, down and synthetic pillows and layered bedding so you can get it just right. Open the windows for cool mountain night air and you have the recipe for a perfect night's sleep (or turn on the ductless air conditioning on those occasional warm nights).

The upper floor is an open loft master suite with a king size bed and a half bath. Wake up to a bird's eye view looking towards Glacier Park through the cathedral windows. Features include a 31” wide screen TV, Blu-Ray disc player, and a recliner for TV viewing or relaxing with a book.

The first floor bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed. Across the hall, the TV room with 42” wide screen TV and Blu-ray disc player provides a second, private living space to read or watch TV. The first floor full bathroom has a shower/tub combination.

Sliding glass doors in the kitchen access the deck which faces Glacier National Park and offers a filtered view of peaks through the towering larch and fir trees. An attached garage serves as a game room for Foosball players of any age, laundry area and offers secure storage for your gear.

Prepare a romantic gourmet dinner or a family meal and serve on Royal Doulton stoneware place settings. Or, set a pretty table on the deck with the colorful Melamine dishes and stemmed glasses. A full array of utensils, pantry basics, condiments and household supplies are provided. For making your favorite brew in the morning, you will find a Capresso coffee maker, coffee grinder, French press and electric kettle.

Check out our resource file full of information on Glacier Park and area activities and attractions to help you with your trip planning (3 canisters of bear spray available for guest use). Packing a picnic lunch is a cinch with a cooler, reusable ice packs, and picnic dishes available. Take the beach towels and beach blanket along and stop at one of the pull-outs along Lake McDonald for some refreshing lake time.

After a day of exploring, come home and build a crackling fire in the fire pit. S'mores, ‘wishing on the first star’ and sharing memories while gazing at the fire are a special way to wind down the day.

This cabin is centrally located for day trips to the east side of Glacier Park, the North Fork, and area attractions to the west. It is 29 miles to Glacier Park International Airport and 25 miles to the hot spot Whitefish - home to an array of recreational activities, shopping, dining and nightlife venues.

This location is perfect for year round fun in Montana’s great outdoors. Spend winter days exploring Glacier Park on cross country skis or snowshoes, cross country skiing on groomed area trails, downhill skiing at Whitefish Mountain Resort, or just snuggling up with a book by the cozy stove and enjoying the peaceful winter scene out the room sized windows. (Snowshoes provided at the cabin).

September and October are quiet and golden with autumn color – a peaceful time to settle in and explore Glacier Park’s gifts.

Open year round, we welcome you to Glacier Ridge Cabin while you explore the Crown of the Continent. Contact us now to book your Glacier Park dream vacation!

About Kim Sands & Drew Paslawsky

We have been blessed with 39 years of exploring and recreating in the mountains, lakes and rivers of Northwest Montana. We are delighted to have the opportunity to create a home from which to share this wonderful part of the world with our guests.

Why Kim Sands & Drew Paslawsky chose West Glacier

West Glacier is a great year round home base for exploring the splendors of Glacier National Park, Whitefish, Flathead Lake, Bigfork, Kalispell, the North Fork area and up to Glacier's sister, Waterton Park in Canada. We like the 'away from it all' feeling of this property with it's convenient year round access.

What makes this cabin unique

Loving nature and the outdoors, I am captivated by the way the floor to ceiling windows bring the outdoors in, and enjoy observing the light of morning and evening on the landscape. It is like having all of the comforts while perched in the midst of nature.


Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful trip! Your cabin was simply the best - we appreciated the warmth of the space, so comfortable and with such thoughtful touches. The sights here were unbelievable...loved the skies, colorful waters, and profusion of flowers, especially the beargrass. We so enjoyed the hikes, biking, bear sightings, and rafting. Hope to come back again someday for some huckleberry ice cream. Thanks so much! We feel so blessed.

5 Stars On All Counts

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties over the past 20 years and the Glacier Ridge House was the best. Everything is exactly as represented on the VRBO site. All of the photos are current. The property was immaculate, very well equipped, had lots of natural light, was private, and perfectly situated for exploring the west side of GNP. We stayed for 10 days in September, cooked all of our meals there and never once said "Gee, I wish they had a ...." Temps ranged from 35 degrees to 85 degrees during our stay and the house was always comfy. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of layers to keep you warm. The gas wood stove in the living room made the whole downstairs cozy. The house had several well-lit places to curl up and read. The Wi-Fi was high speed and easy to connect to. We enjoy music so it was easy to connect our iPhone to the speaker system; the mini-jack cord was even provided. We enjoyed the deck and view from the dining area. The large capacity washer and dryer with folding table and clothes line was a big help for packing light. There are a number of guidebooks and trail guides available at the house. Kim was very responsive to all of our emails. She provided helpful suggestions for hikes, interesting day trips, and restaurants. The property is close to several towns which have fun shops and great dining. We would absolutely stay here again.

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Glacier Ridge Cabin was wonderful. The cabin is immaculate, comfortable, and equipped with anything a visitor might need; the setting is very quiet and just a stone’s throw away from GNP. Owners Kim and Drew are accessible, responsive and guest-focused; in addition to seeing that every detail is in place in their beautiful home, they provide a wealth of information about the park and the region. They are committed to Glacier and to helping visitors experience this special place in a meaningful, memorable way, which for us added to our time there. Can’t say enough, all other reviews are absolutely true. We hope to return very soon.

Glacier Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many vacation homes but this one has to be the best. Everything stated about the cabin on the web sight is met. The cabin exceeded all of our expectations. Can't say enough about Kim, and the information that supplies us with, and the time that she saved us with her recommendation of where to eat, shop, and trails to hike. The communication with her and Drew was very timely and well done. Being so close to the park made it easy o get out early and beat the crowds to the parking spots in Glacier. We did several hikes and got to see most of the big animals in the park. The bear, and big horn sheep a little to close for comfort, the moose and mountain goats at the right distance.

We want to thank Drew and Kim for letting us stay at their cabin and we had a super good time at our home away from home.

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Glacier Ridge Cabin. Perfect location! The house had everything we needed. Very comfortable beds - we slept like a dream after our days of hiking and other adventures. Great deck for relaxing as well. We highly recommend this cabin and would not hesitate to go back. In addition to all that, our hosts were super informative and helpful. Sincerely,

Whitfield/Pyland Family
