Better than The Four Seasons!
We have traveled near and far, from Maine to Spain, and we have never experienced anything as fantastic as Glacier Bear Retreat. Before we even arrived, Gail sent tons of useful info (hiking trails, etc) and when I asked questions (where can I bike?) she called with detailed explanations. During our stay she made herself 100% available and was like a 24/7 concierge.
The house itself was phenomenal with top-of-the-line everything….automated reclining sofas, heated beds (seriously!), thick down comforters. Everything we needed was there…wood for the fire pit; a well stocked pantry; citronella candles to detract bugs.
We had a fantastic vacation. Obviously the area is gorgeous and very worth visiting- but Gail and Glacier Bear Retreat made it out-of-this-world. My kids are already asking when we can return!
