Hi, we're Scott and Nancy!

Meet Scott & Nancy

For many years we had fished, hiked, rafted and camped in and around Glacier National Park so when it came time to make a move we began looking for our own piece of paradise in the wilds of the North Fork valley. Because there is so much federal land, Park Service and Forest Service, there wasn't much private land available and what was obtainable was remote and mostly inaccessible. When this particular property became available, we investigated its proximity to the river and Glacier Park. We made an offer without seeing much of the property and as they say "the rest is history". Now over 20 years later we can say that we have never regretted it even for a day.

Here is our property:

Glacier family vacation

“ Excellent ”
August 2, 2014
Our family of 11 stayed at Grizzly Cabin for a week. The location was actually very nice. The cabin was clean and well stocked for dishes and cooking utensils. A short trip to the West entrance to Glacier National Park if you are willing to drive on a little gravel. Blankenship road got is there is about 15-20 minutes. Also only 20-30 minutes from Whitefish and 10-15 from Columbia Falls. Location is very quiet and wooded. The temps got up in the 90's while we were there, but the cabin stayed quite cool and great for sleeping as it cooled off at night. Our hosts were very nice. They provided us with hiking maps and a guide book and also had bear spray on site that we could use if needed. The only unpleasant surprise was that the water was quite sulphuric and we decided to bring drinking water in. The good news is that we purchased a few gallons and would then take them with us into glacier and we could refill them for free at any of the campsites. We always filled our hydration packs at these sites prior to hiking anyway so it was not inconvenient. The cabin water was fine for bathing. We would recommend this for any familiy looking for a quiet, peaceful place to stay near Glacier.
