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, 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.

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, 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.

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 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.


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.

Wonderful Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many rental homes and this one ranks at the top. The owners were quick to respond with different questions I had before the trip. The home was very clean, wonderful location and equipped with a variety of things to make our week a memorable one. The owners provide tp, paper towels, condiments and more--all the things that you usually need to buy or bring. They have so much information provided about all the activities to do in the area. Loved it!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of the most immaculate air bnbs I have ever stayed in! Anything you could think of that you needed to make it more like home was available and well organized! The location was perfect, very close to the southern gate of the park with hiking trails, McDonald Lodge, and Apgar area. Sleeping areas were perfect for two couples- gave privacy for both. Great view from the deck and lovely little fire pit all well stocked with wood and lighting supplies. Walking distance to the Glacier Highland cafe for breakfast or dinner which was also a great plus. Hopefully we will be back in Glacier again some day and we would definitely stay here again!! Thanks so much for the great vacation :-)

Could not pick a more perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start -- the perfect location, the perfect hosts, or the perfect house! The house is literally 2 minutes from the GNP entrance, making it 2 minutes from horseback riding with Swan Mountain Outfitters, 2 minutes from Glacier Raft Company, and only about 5 minutes from Apgar Village. We were pleasantly surprised by the Glacier Highland restaurant, within walking distance. Other stuff not open during our early May visit, but you really wouldn't have to go more than 20 minutes to entertain/feed yourself from this VRBO's location. And now the house ... we've been plotting on how to convince the owner to sell this to us in a few years. The beds were extremely comfortable and we loved the open layout. The interior is exactly as pictured, maybe even bigger than the pictures make it look. Finally, the hosts. If we can't buy the house from them, we might just move in with them! They have thought of absolutely everything. So clean, and I can't think of one single thing we lacked. The pantry has all the basics, and if it doesn't, the hosts will let you know beforehand so you can grab it in Columbia Falls. They also helped us plan our activities, which proved to be super helpful. They could not have been kinder, more gracious or more helpful. I know it sounds like I'm buttering them up to buy this house (haha), but I'm very serious. I have done 4 VRBO stays now and this, by far, tops them all. The only note I'd make (that the hosts can't help) is that the Glacier Guides Lodge is next door. We heard ZERO noise from them, but when you step out onto the deck, you can see one of the Lodge houses. But we also saw lots of deer -- this is a very private and not-well-traveled road. Perfect. Can't wait to go back. Just looking at the picture makes me miss this spot like crazy.

Owner's Response: One small correction - Glacier Ridge Cabin sits on a quiet dead end road with several other private homes, one of which you can see through the trees from the deck. Glacier Guides Lodge is on another access road and is not near the cabin.

Wonderful Glacier home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and would recommend this house to anyone visiting Glacier. The west entrance is minutes away and they have everything needed to make meals. The home is super clean and charming. Our kids loved the upstairs loft. The Netflix was a nice way to unwind after hiking all day.
