The staff were so friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome. I came in early May, when most of the shops were still closed for the season, including their onsite cafe, but was provided with a breakfast/snacks for the day.
Located in West Glacier in the Montana region, Cozy and Secluded Cabin - 4 Mi to Glacier Natl Park has a terrace.
The location is excellent (provided you travel by car), just what we wanted a few minutes from the West Entrance to Glacier National Park. The facilities are excellent. The four adults comprising our party were very comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with some lovely mugs and a great coffee machine, there is lots of local information, the huckleberry soap in the bathroom is delicious! The WiFi worked perfectly. We had all we needed. The check-in process was really easy, the managers of the property communicated really well and it was clear what needed to be done in case we needed anything.
Glacier National Park is beautiful, but many people want to go there. There is a inexpensive day pass available 40 days in advance for about 15 minutes. If you don't have one, you have to wait until 3PM to get in. This is addition to the entrance fee. Be prepared for weather from freezing to summer. The west end of Going to the Sun Road is being repaved in 2023, so it is gravel. From West Glacier, you can take your time drive to the Saint Mary entrance and get there about 3. Do not drive to the Polebridge entrance unless you have a pass, and a truck. The road outside the park is mostly unpaved, and all of it inside at the entrance, with warnings. Do your research!
We Canoe'd on Lake MacDonald the first day and then traved up to the MacDonald Lodge and hiked up alon the Trail of the Cedars. The First day we secured a 3 day pass for the following 3 day so we hiked Avalanch Lake and Avalanch Falls, also up to Red Rocks and spending time on the Sacred Cascade Falls trails and saw a deer. We had a wedding at Paddle Ridge the next day which was a beautiful location, with a very accomodating staff. Our next day we traveled over to East Glacier, St Mary's and Many Glacier ...across the Continental Divid and there were beautiful views! I will come back in September with more family and stay for 9 days! Peace, Patty and family
The park is beautiful, but lots of driving to get from one scenic location to another. Not all roads are always open, often due to winter damage for example. This would not be an issue for someone focusing on one area of the park for a focused camping, hiking, biking or fishing experience.
The cottage was very clean. We felt like we were home that all we need are groceries. The kitchen has everything. Very close to the park entrance. We would definitely recommend these lovely stand alone cottages to our friends.
The road to the sun was amazing and so fortunate to have bought a pass ahead of time. Multiple stops along the way for sightseeing, hiking and cooling off in the lakes. Many additional visitors to the park, but manageable. The locals were very helpful along with the visitors centers to provide points of interest. McDonald Lake was spectacular, but the lodge was outdated, smelled musty and needed some work... very glad to not have booked a room there!
Great for larger groups (fishing, hiking, Glacier Park exploring)—you should travel with a minimum of 4 people to make it worthwhile money-wise. The cabin we were in was a 2-bedroom, and could probably have slept 8 people because we had 4 queen beds. The cabin was clean and had a big kitchen (which we did not use because we stayed only 1 night with 4 people). But the cabin would have been great for a longer stay, and a bigger family group.
