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.

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.

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.

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 Columbia Falls
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. Kim

A Perfect Stay
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.
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.
Ideally located, comfortable, and well-equipped cabin outside of Glacier National Park
The owners, Kim and Drew, have thought of everything. I have never seen a more organized, tidy household. The cabin has two bedrooms and a full bath downstairs and a king sized bed and a half bath in the loft. One of the bedrooms has a sleeper sofa and the other bedroom has a full size bed. There are thoughtful touches everywhere. The kitchen is completely outfitted with everything you would need.
The cabin is located on a ridge above Highway 2 and is less than a 5 minute drive from the west entrance of the park. There are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance of the cabin albeit down a fairly steep hill. If you have a car, there are also good restaurants in Columbia Falls.
Due to the Stage 2 fire warning, we were not able to use the firepit. There were 8 fires burning in the park when we arrived. It was hot and smoky. After a thunderstorm blew through our first night, the power was knocked out and so was the water. We called Kim and Drew and they told us that there were large containers of water in the garage for emergencies. By the time we got back from an all-day tour the next day, the electricity and the water were back on and the weather got progressively better from there on out.
The cabin does not have air conditioning, but there are two ceiling fans and if you open the windows at night and close them during the day, the temperature stays pleasant. The one night it stayed a little warm we took a dip in chilly Lake McDonald at Apgar Village (less than 15 minutes into the park) (Bring water shoes) .
We spent a week here and really felt like we got to know the park. We used Kim's recommendations and resources for hikes. We were completely relaxed by the time we left and that is a good trip.
Owners note for clarification: Glacier Ridge Cabin is listed and offered as 2 bedrooms with 2 beds - King in the loft and Queen on 1st floor. At one time, we offered the TV room as a 3rd bedroom with sleeper sofa (and bedding) at an additional charge per night. The sleeper sofa is no longer offered or available for guest use. We plan to remove it and replace it with a traditional sofa.
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,
