We used a cabin outside the Glacier National Park boundary as a basis of operations for a family reunion. Some of us stayed in the cabin, others camped in the park. When the rain came, we all played cards at the cabin. The cabin was clean, well-stocked with equipment for cooking, and everything was in working order. The cabin was... More

We rented the Glacier View House, which can accommodate up to 20 or so people if every queen bed has two guests, for a family weekend in Glacier. As it was the last weekend in September, everything in the park was closed, and with last minute planning, not much was available near the park. With 40% off the rack rate... More

Rented a two story cabin for our trip to Glacier National Park (which was amazing!), and the cabin was just great! Kitchen on the second floor (which you could drive up to, which really helped my mother in law not have to climb steps) was stocked with everything but food. Only a mile or so from the Park entrance, very... More

The staff at Glacier Outdoor Center were very helpful in getting my wife & I ready for our fist kayak trip, and the trip was fantastic . They also specialize in fishing, very helpful and informative regardless of using a guide or taking it on your own. Thanks for all your help!

These were some of the nicest cabins we have stayed in in may places! Clean, well appointed, well equipped, and run by GREAT people! The 2 queen beds were comfortable with crisp sheets. The towels were fluffy and not threadbare or scratchy. The gas stove worked great to heat the place since it was nearly freezing at night. Full kitchen,... More

The cabins are sited in the trees, on the hill behind the Outdoor Center facilities and well away from the highway, with views of the mountains and night sky. They are rustic but spacious, comfortable, well appointed and have good TV and internet service. Just a great base for exploring Glacier National Park. They are a good value considering the... More

We were "doing" Glacier NP in August, accomodation was at a premium. These cabins had a night at a fair price, $450, and we were very pleased , well furnished, clean, large rooms, could sleep 12 if friendly! Near Glacier Park gate. shame no hot tub but wifi worked unlike more expensive St Mary.
