“A great value in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Have stayed here dozens of times since the mid-1990's, enjoying the combination of reasonable price, individual cottages, and "tucked away" feel. Owners are friendly and responsive, and they keep it nice and clean.

These cottages were perfect four our family during the Glacier NP part of our road trip. Unlike some of the cabins and/or motels around the area these cottages are not rustic but fully modern in terms of facilicties. That said, they are not fancy but very comfortable and the decor has just the right amount of kitch. My husband, three little kids and I stayed in the cottage with a kitchen, which was fully equipped and spacious. The staff was courteous and friendly, our room was very clean (even the carpets were in very good shape), the pillows were for real, and we had plenty of hot water. It was also nice not to have to share any walls with other guests. And last but not least, to our pleasant surprise there was a swing set in the "yard" that our kids were very happy to see after so much driving.

Room Tip: If you plan to stay for more than one night, the cottage with a kitchen in very useful. If you can...

The cabins are nice size and ours was very clean. The showers had enough hot water for four of us and the pressure was excellent. The best part was how nice the people running the place are. We were backpacking for a week and they let us keep some of our things on site for the week we were gone and even helped us with bear spray for our adventures. Very friendly and very helpful. Will stay there again if/when we return. There are also nice restaurants within walking distance.

I must admit, we were initially a bit skeptical about this place when we were booking. The booking was over the phone and got no confirmation email and no deposit was held on my card. We checked in quite late and the lady at the front desk was very helpful. We got a nice cottage, which although not fancy and upmarket as chain hotels, was very very clean and comfortable. The heater worked great in the night and the bed was good. TV was old and didn't have many channels but in a place so close to such a beautiful NP one really should not need a TV. There was a small cafe and a local store nearby and we walked down there to have some hucckleberry ice-cream later that evening. Good old small town America. Very safe, warm and hospitable people. Great stay!!

Good place to stay when exploring Glacier National Park but do note this town is not exactly near the park (though very near the park lodge which is worth seeing). The road between here and Glacier is both breathtaking and a bit of a thriller with steep curves over a mountain drop and cows walking out wherever they please. (the road scared me but was an unheralded highlight of our trip). The room was clean. Many commented on showers, mine was hot and taken at night. The other shower was "hot with some mild fluctuations" taken in the morning. Everything was clean and there were no odd smells. Bed mattress was dumpy and not exactly comfy but tolerable for a night. Ashtrays in the room do not inspire confidence in a no smoking policy and struck as as odd. Still, very nice proprietors!

In defiance of State of Montana law, none of the rooms are labeled smoking/nonsmoking. Our reservation was for a non-smoking room. It was not marked and had an ashtray right by the bed. Our room REEKED of Pinesol when we checked in, so much so that the kids had to sit outside while we aired it out with a fan. The owner (who is a smoker) blamed it on her new cleaners. As the odor of Pinesol wore off, we smelled the smoke. Though the bedding was clean, the beds, the furniture, and somehow even the bathroom smelled of smoke. The older owner was very nice, but as a heavy smoker, she just did not understand about allergies and sensitivities. She said all of the rooms were "aired out" daily. Though the kitchenette room was a great value and clean in other ways, I recommend spending a bit more money and staying in the park proper where you will enjoy nature and a true vacation ambience. It was not worth the headaches and post-nasal drips to put up with the smoke.

This is how things should be...personalized, friendly, and hard working people taking care of you...not someone getting paid lower wages who are just 'there to do a job & go home'. They really, truly care how your day went and want to help you be sure your tomorrow is just as good if not better. What more could you ask for? Love this place, it was so homey and clean. The owners were amazing, so friendly and just great people. They went out of their way to be helpful, you should listen to the recommendations she gives for food, views, etc, she knows her stuff! The cottages looked small, but in actuality were quite roomy and were very, very clean. I really just can't say enough good things about this little piece of the world!
