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, 2 wide screen TV’s, Blu-ray player (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.

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, DVD player, and a recliner for TV viewing or relaxing with a book.

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 explore Glacier Park’s gifts.

About Kim Sands & Drew Paslawsky

We have been blessed with 38 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 Glacier Country

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.

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.

My Parents Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for my parents as a thank you gift to stay in at the beginning of October. They were in love. They could not stop talking about the conveniences this home offered. Not only was is minutes from the park entrance, but Drew and Kim have the home extremely well stocked of all items you may need during your stay. The home was immaculate upon their arrival which is always appreciated. My parents are already talking about the next trip back. Thank you Kim and Drew for all your help with making my parents surprise a memorable experience!

Nice forest setting near the Park

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was as described... Well-maintained well-equipped and everything you need was there, from spices to BBQ. Very comfy beds and nice forest setting. Perfectly positioned for access to the park. The owners had everything laid out for us and we're extremely responsive to questions, etc. Unfortunately, the location was also very near the railroad and we found the noise and frequency of the trains (especially at night) to be disruptive of the otherwise peaceful setting.

The right place to stay for Glacier!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and we couldn't have asked for a better location to Glacier NP. The home is very nice and cozy, with plenty of space for 5 of us. Everything we might have needed was there. The books and maps were very helpful. The beds were very comfortable. We loved the back and side decks and the fire ring in the backyard. Very private and pretty place. Thank you for providing a wonderful home away from home Drew and Kim!

Excellent cabin to stay in when visiting Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5

Drew and Kim have placed a lot of thought into the cabin; they have thought of everything to make one's stay so enjoyable. Wonderful location just outside of the west entrance. We could not have been more pleased. After a day of hiking, it was a very comfortable place to come home to .

Excellent rental and location for visiting Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well stocked. Plenty of room for 4 people. Beds and couches were comfortable. It was very close to the GNP west entrance, less than a mile. But it was secluded enough from neighbors to feel you had plenty of privacy. Would definitely recommend staying there to friends and family and plan to rent it again if we return to the area.
