Glacier National Park Cabins

Glacier National Park, Montana

Glacier National Park Cabins allow visitors to rest their weary bodies in comfort and privacy after a day of adventuring. Unlike lodging accommodations, there are no other visitors to intrude on your solitude. And unlike Glacier National Park camping, your nights are guaranteed to be warm, comfortable and mosquito free.

For families, there’s no better way to bond.

Glacier National Park cabins are diverse in appearance, hospitality accommodation, and price.

However, regardless if you rent a modest, rustic cabin with an outhouse in Polebridge, Montana or a deluxe rental in West Glacier, Montana, there are a handful of common links throughout all Glacier National Park cabins:

Smoky Bear Ranch

Smoky Bear Ranch in West Glacier, Montana offers two kinds of cabin rentals: the exquisite Grizzly Cabin and the modest Little Bear Cabins.

The Grizzly Cabin is a four-bedroom/two bath log home with a full kitchen, laundry facilities and sleeps up to 12. However, the dining area and cutlery equipment is only enough to service 10 people. The enormous living area is equipped with a full size folding futon, rocking chair, couch and satellite TV (and DVD/VCR player). Additionally, there’s a Country wood stove to warm your bones during the chilly Montana nights.

The Little Bear Cabin is a cozy 500 sq ft cabin with a porch that overlooks a pond and the Apgar Mountain Range. There’s a single loft bedroom, kitchenette and one bath. With a queen bed and two twins in the loft, and a futon sleeper sofa on the main level, this cabin sleeps up to six but that’s going to be a tight, cozy fit.

Glacier Outdoor Center

Located just ½ mile from Glacier National Park’s west entrance, Glacier Outdoor Center offers one-bedroom cabins (sleeps six), two-bedroom cabins (sleeps 14), and two bedroom deluxe cabins (sleeps 14, but has extra space along with a washer/dryer) in West Glacier, Montana.

These are roomier than most Glacier National Park cabins available for rent, but the price certainly shows it. All cabins are non-smoking and no pets are allowed. Glacier Outdoor Center also provides free wi-fi to its guests.

Glaciers’ Mountain Resort

Glaciers’ Mountain Resort is nestled in West Glacier, Montana and offers five one-bedroom log cabins. It’s an intimate location with friendly hosts that are friendly and accommodating to your needs and questions.

Each cabin can accommodate four people (queen size bed and futon), has a TV/VCR, a natural gas fireplace, and offers views of the Montana mountains from your porch. A nice bonus: if you book for seven nights, your final night is half price!

Polebridge Montana Cabins

In my opinion, Polebridge Montana is Glacier National Park’s paradise within paradise. It’s remote, awe-inspiring, and truly America’s final frontier town.

And the Glacier National Park cabins available here fit just perfectly with Polebridge, Montana’s vibe. Cabins are only $30 a night (compared to the average $200!) and come furnished with beds, a table, wood heating and propane lights. However, you need to bring your own sleeping bags and pillow, cooking utensils and water jug.

It’s rustic. It’s unique. It’s not for the feint of heart (your bathroom is an outhouse). But it’s an experience you’ll never forget.

Izaak Walton Inn

Izaak Walton Inn is located between West and East Glacier Montana, making its location less than ideal as a base camp for Glacier National Park. It’s also a little more touristy and sterile than other Glacier National Park cabins.

The cabins are right next to each other, affording you barely any privacy. They sleep up to 4 people and have full kitchens. For the price, you can find far better options.

North Forty Resort

North Forty Resort is located in Whitefish, MT, making its location even less ideal than Summit Station and Izaak. Even though Whitefish is a cool, hip town, if you’re looking to adventure in Glacier National Park, you’re going to spend far too many hours commuting back and forth to the park.

Cabin options are single-family cabins that can sleep 5 people and duplex that can sleep 8. All come with full kitchens, gas fireplaces, covered porches and picnic tables.

PS Don’t be fooled by their banner—that picture is taken in the area around Bowman Lake

Glacier National Park cabins are without question a unique way to view the park. In my opinion, if you plan to stay in a cabin, choose one of the options in West Glacier, Montana or the rustic Polebridge, Montana cabins.

Additionally, there are cabins available for rent at the Apgar Village Inn and Lake McDonald Lodge in West Glacier Montana.
