Great location for a vacation!

Glacier National park has something for everyone. There are horse back riding tours, and helicopter tours. They offer a free shuttle from the visitor center to the top of the pass. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery while letting someone else do the driving. They have rafting tours with some including dinner along the rivers edge. There is wildlife and so many hikes ranging from extreme to easy strolls. There is plenty of picnic places in the park. Lake McDonald offers paddle boards and kayaks to rent for a day on the lake. There are plenty of gift shops to stroll through to take home a souvenir.

About 30 minutes to Big Fork where there is shopping, food and breweries on the Flathead lake.

This is just the beginning. Columbia Falls has a big water slide that has mini golf, a rock wall and you can bring your own food for a barbecue. There is a wooden maze to keep your mind sharp. The house of mystery will leave you in mystery. Enjoy so many huckleberry food items from ice cream, pies, fudge to jams and candies. Flathead lake has boat tours to enjoy, as well as beach access to swim. There is no sales tax with the exception of Whitefish. After a day out exploring Montana, sit back and relax on the front porch of Glacier retreat. Come enjoy Montana's Big Sky and beautiful scenery.

Close to Glacier Nationa Park, Quiet, Well-stocked

  • 4 of 5

Pluses: Close (by back road) to Glacier entrance, quiet, large rooms, well-stocked kitchen and linens, nice porch, plenty of hot water, large dining/work table, 1.7 mile walk to river. Could Be Better: wifi was so slow as to be unusable, 10 miles from Columbia Falls, soap/shampoo containers in bathrooms empty, no facial tissues, no mirrors in bedrooms, no reading light at beds.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your stay. Unfortunately, we are in the mountains, but I do have the fastest speed possible for this area. The good news is, they are digging for fiber optics so hopefully next summer Galcier Retreat will offer faster internet services.

Great cabin! Close drive to Glacier!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent 3 nights at this great cabin and we really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was very clean, very comfortable, and had everything we needed. It's location near the west entrance of Glacier made exploring the park extremely convenient and gave us the ability to do some hiking and come back and relax without having to drive all day. Columbia Falls is only 15 minutes away and provides a great spot to grab a bite to eat or grab groceries/supplies at the grocery store. Gina, the owner, lives right next door and is very responsive if you should need anything or simply have a question. We enjoyed talking with her. We would definitely recommend a stay here if you are planning visiting the west side of Glacier National Park.

Excellent! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for our Glacier trip. Very close to Apgar (West) visitor center and towns (Columbia Falls and Whitefish). Loved having 2 bathrooms. Super clean. Gina was great and it was a pleasure meeting her even though we didn't need a thing!

This rental was perfect retreat for us - we brought our four kids to Glacier for a wedding and really enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable, loved having two bathrooms. Everything was impeccably cleaned. All the windows made it so bright and cheerful. Gina was flexible with our travel needs and was wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay here again!!
