About Jennelle Cassidy

We are Montanan's! Our family homesteaded this landscape and have been an intricate part of the Flathead Valley and Glacier Park since the beginning of Montana's History. Scott is French Canadian and his family is part of the Sam Steele Historic Village in Canada. Jennelle's family forged the road to this magnificent land on a covered wagon from Sweden. Our family history is bold and exciting and this is how we live our lives. We too love adventure and travel is our favorite past time.

Jennelle own's a specialty bakery for Gluten Free and Vegan needs and Scott is in the iron business. Our oldest is in college and two in high school. We travel back and forth from MT to TX but we will forever have our hearts where our home is, The Big Sky~

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you again for providing exactly what we were looking for on our


The home was perfect and gave a cabin type feeling that we loved.

Again there were a few things that could use some fixing, but past that was


I definitely recommend a new coffee pot, though we did run vinegar thru to

work a little better for the next group.

Again though those are small compared to the experience we received, we

just like to help as much as possible and we look forward to staying again

and will definitely recommend to our friends and families.

Thank you so much again.

Have a great day

Our home is just that, a home a place we come back and forth from and enjoy ourselves, where our family and friends stay because it's home away from home. Not fancy, but Montana isn't about fancy it is simple and comfortable and ready for your Montana adventure. Enjoy the views at night off the back deck. Listen to the birds and watch the deer run through the yard. Our family fav is a little badminton in the front yard and followed up by a camp fire and smores. Montana Dawn is home~

West Glacier home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here! It was the perfect location for our Glacier National Park vacation! It was only 1/2 hour from the west entrance and close to everything we needed...groceries, gas, coffee, and the liquor store. The house was decorated adorably and was stocked with everything we needed. Plus there were movies and an Apple TV for Netflix and Hulu. There was plenty of room for everyone. Every morning we saw deer in the yard when we were drinking coffee and every night we had a bonfire. Janelle was so friendly and available for everything we needed. Just an email away. Can't wait to go back and stay here!

It was very comfortable and a nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves very much. It was clean and nice and quiet house to stay in. Thank you very much. How do we get our refund from the deposit? The address was a little hard to find. Yes I would recommend this to a friend. We were there for a family reunion so most of our meals were provided there.

Overall good experience

  • 4 of 5

Good overall experience. Felt like we where staying at a friends or relatives house. All the furniture and furnishings were well used. Painting, maintainance, repairs, etc were performed by DIY. Could use some modernization and updating to feel like a professional rental. We would have liked to use the grille that was off limits.

Awesome Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Normally we stay in hotels when we go on vacation but this home worked out so much better than I expected. We were able to meet together as a family in the evening and share our experiences of the days adventure in Glacier Park around a fully stocked fire pit. We were able to wake up in the mornings with no interruptions from a hotel staff. We were able to make breakfast as the kitchen is fully stocked with cooking necessities and more. It was easily accessible to stores and also the outdoors along with so close to Glacier park entrance. The location was amazing and worked well for us. We had a fulfilled Glacier vacation. Thanks for sharing your home it was exactly as described!

Owner's Response: Debbie, your review is so kind! What we love most is everyone had the "Montana Family Time" you were looking for. You and your family were wonderful guests, respected our home and left everything just as you arrived! You are more than welcome to come back anytime. Our family has been using VRBO for many years before we decided to share our home. So welcome to the VRBO Family, you won't travel any other way. Blessings to you- Jennelle Montana Dawn

Montana turkey

I took my family to Montana for the first time. Wow what a beatiful area. The home was centrally located, close to everything. It only took us a couple of minutes from the airport. It had everything we needed to truly enjoy ourselves. We will definitely be back.

Exceptional Family Home

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our family of 5! Very comfortable and enjoyable for each one of us. We were pleased with the rooms, bathrooms and living space. Our kids loved the board games and movies, felt like home away!! The home is spaced out as a split level so the kids were in the onus room and we were upstairs watching a movie. We even had our family come over for a camp fire, HOW FUN!!! Deer in the front yard and sunsets off the back porch. The most ideal place, we were here to see family and travel between Whitefish and Columbiafalls and the airport was minutes away! We will be back for sure. Also, I would thank the owner for making special arrangements with us and their hospitality.
