We had an absolutely amazing time at Glacier Bear Retreat. Glacier National Park is incredibly beautiful, and this house is the perfect place to stay for visiting the park. How often can you have your own, private, luxurious house inside a national park?
The location is phenomenal – easily accessible inside the West Glacier gate and just a few minutes walk from Lake McDonald, but also hidden in the trees and away from any park traffic.
The house itself has everything you would want for a vacation in the woods – fireplace, hot tub, outdoor fire pit, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, screened-in porch, beds that feel better than a 5-star hotel, bikes for exploring the paved paths, trail guidebooks for hiking around the park, bear mace (very important!), and such helpful, accommodating hosts! They have truly thought of every detail and made this place extraordinary. We couldn’t have felt more lucky to have spent a week at Glacier Bear Retreat. This place is magical – I hope we’ll be back!
