Just being outside at Glacier Bear is a vacation unto itself. Surrounded by Glacier National Park on all four sides, our property is literally a slice of heaven.
Knowing that our guests will want to enjoy the outdoors, we built our retreat with a large, screened, wrap-around porch, perfect for entertaining your family and friends. There’s seating for 8 and two Comfort-Trap chairs for extreme relaxation. Just off of the screened porch you’ll find the barbecue grill, perfect for outdoor cooking.
To the back of our home, you’ll find a pathway that leads across a storybook bridge, to “Max Island” (named after our son). This island boasts its own private picnic table and swing chair, and is flanked on either side by two streams that usually run year-round. It’s a private, magical spot to read, relax, picnic, or whatever.
To the front and to the south side of our home, you’ll find two double hammocks, that are just waiting for you to return from a long day of exploring the park. Warning: they are super comfortable, so don’t think you can just relax in one for a few minutes… they’ll be looking for you an hour later!
To the south side of the house we’ve built a small fire pit that is perfect for campfires and stargazing. There are 10 Adirondack chairs around the fire, and cozy blankets inside the house (in the baskets behind the sofa) to keep you snuggly warm on cool nights by the fire. No matter the time of day of where you are on the property, you’ll be entranced by the beauty that surrounds our little paradise.
Best of all, we have a beautiful Caldera Tarino hot tub with fantastic jets, lights and seating for five just past the fire pit. After a long day of hiking, what could be better than a relaxing soak in the hot tub while looking up at the stars?
We look forward to sharing it with you!
