We searched for something that would feel like we were out in the woods but that was also affordable and accessible without a rent-a-car. Our 12 year old son surfaced this on the internet and we were glad he did. With rental cars going at $85+ per day (we didn't need to drive around), we decided to pay the very reasonable taxi service at $10 each way to town and save the difference vs. other more expensive options. The price was great for a cabin quad (around $120; they added a cot at no extra cost). Bathroom was huge, clean and very comfortable...not what you think of in terms of a "cabin". The cabins are owned by the same folks that run the Salmon Bake restaurant next door (a must) plus their new sister property, the Glacier Exit Lodge which we stayed at also on our last night due to full bookings (all contiguous). When you stay in the cabins you can opt to have a continental breakfast at the Lodge for $7 a head. The owners are very hospitable and offered lots of help coordinating excursions and such (Sarah). They had maid service with a nice Mexican family, and since we live in Mexico it was a nice plus to connect with them too. We'd go back in a minute!
Only one suggestion on transport, don't use "Mike's Taxi" service. The guy totally ripped us off on our last day when I failed to ask beforehand for a price with a short stop in between. Another prominent local later told me that he was not in her favor either...
