is located in the U.S. state of Montana
, where the American and Canadian Rockies meet. The park encompasses over 1,000,000 acres and includes two mountain ranges, over 130 named lakes, and hundreds of plant and animal species. This vast and pristine ecosystem attracts visitors from the world over.
If the awe inspiring natural beauty
isn’t enough, the area is also steeped in history. The park was established in 1910 and soon after hotels and chalets were constructed by the Great Northern Railway. These historic accommodations are now listed as National Historic Landmarks. A fleet of restored 1930s White Motor Company coaches, called Red jammers, offer tours on all the main roads in the park and a number of historic wooden tour boats, some dating back to the 1920s, operate on several of the larger lakes. Several of the boats have been in continuous seasonal operation on the major lakes of Glacier National Park since 1927!
You will find everything from rustic yet comfortable accommodations to luxury condo rentals at Glacier Park. The local timber frame chalet rentals, luxury condo rentals, mountainside vacation rentals, and beautiful lakeside chalet rentals
are designed in keeping with the history of the area.
The hiking opportunities in Glacier National Park are beyond compare. Over 700 miles of trails invite visitors to enjoy nature at its finest. After a long day of tromping through the park you’ll want to sit back and take in the spectacular view
of the lake from your lakeside vacation rental. Watch as the Osprey and Bald Eagles do some fishing. Or try it out for yourself. Fishing is a popular activity in the park and excellent fly fishing can be found in the streams that flow through the park.
Whitetail Deer are frequently seen grazing near vacation rentals. Elk, moose, grizzly bear, mountain goat, wolverine, and lynx are also known to inhabit the park. Hundreds of species of birds and more than a dozen fish species can be encountered on your hiking or fishing adventure and even from the comfort of a mountain chalet rental.

and our variety accommodation provides the perfect home away from home for a relaxing winter getaway.
