Great semi-secluded cabin away from the Glacier NP crowds. Well built, quiet, well stocked kitchen, plenty of chopped wood for heating and cozy. The bunkhouse had the same feeling. The decor in the house and bunkhouse leave you with a homey feeling and plenty to gaze at. The Polebridge Mercantile is a must visit. Their bakery really cranks out the goodies all day long. They do have a few gluten free options, but I would be cautious (I tried a muffin and had issues). The owner contacted me before the trip to make sure I understood the workings of the solar electricity, generator, water, etc... which was much appreciated. Pretty much all of the windows have screens on them, so you can open up the house to get nice airflow without worrying too much about the bugs (mosquitoes are horrendous). Prior visitors had left behind cans of bear spray to use.
As described in the posting, this cabin is off the grid - no internet, no phones, no TV (not that you need it with the surroundings) although you can play movies. No cell phone signal worried me a bit in case of emergencies, but once there, it was a bit refreshing and everything went well. We were able to get phone signal on Camas Road on the way into GNP. The rooms in the main house are open to the rest of the house and are not private. This was not a problem for our party, but may be for others. The shower is on the second level of the house (also one in the bunkhouse) which could be a problem for handicapped individuals. For the water, the tanks were always empty in the morning so we had to start the generator first thing. This could make for a very chilly start to the day if you're staying there in the winter time. I will put out a word of warning to the motorcycle visitors, the roads are gravel!! If you have a duel-sport or a bike you don't really care about, I suppose this doesn't really matter, but nice road bikes beware. Lastly, and this is minor, the refrigerator is pretty small for large groups. It was okay for our party of 5 but if you plan to cook at home a lot for a larger party, this could be a bit of a hiccup.
Overall nice cabin! I wouldn't let my review deter you from staying at the cabin, I just wanted to include some things I would have found helpful prior to the visit. Great find!
