"We had prompt communication and no problems booking this rental. The house was just as advertised and was very clean and comfortable. There is a large outdoor hot tub (with sound system outside), jacuzzi tubs in two bathrooms (including a double size in the master bedroom), and a outdoor steam room with beds for three. The hot tub was all ready to use when we arrived, and we used it daily during our stay. The house is well stocked with condiments and some food staples and includes things you would otherwise buy, such as bear spray, laundry detergent, and large foam coolers with icepacks. This is a large house with king bed, queen bed, two twins and a double size sleeping mat as well as a sleeper sofa downstairs. It could easily be shared by two families if some of the kids didn't mind sleeping in the rec room. There was a nice pool table and darts that also was fun. There are wood fireplaces upstairs and downstairs as well as a wood burning stove in the master bedroom. We stayed in August and used the A/C, but this place would be wonderful for a ski trip! The location is about 15 minutes down the mountain from the ski area, where you can also zip-line (my 13 year old loved it!) and do other fun summer activities. It is about 10 minutes from the town of Whitefish. There are a few other cottages in the association, but it is essentially nestled in the woods with a few traffic sounds during busy times. Otherwise, it is very quiet. We saw two does and two fawns come to drink in an area close by while using the outside hot tub. The property manager is in a cottage next door, but we only saw him when he came to introduce himself and ask if we needed anything. You are about a 40 minute drive from the west entrance to Glacier. We spent two very long days in Glacier. Since the trip through the actual park from west to east is very slow, it takes a bit less than 2 hours to get all the way from the house to the east entrance through the park. It is a very scenic drive. If you stay in the ski village, you are another 15 minutes further from Glacier. I would highly recommend this place for a family or two families vacationing in this area! We whitewater rafted with Glacier Guides (class II rapids), and this was also lots of fun. We had a range of ages from 13 to 77 and everyone found this one of their favorite activities. Pick a sunny day because the water is chilly. We booked the rafting only a day ahead with no problems."
