What To Do?

There’s plenty to do when you vacation near Glacier National Park!

While Glacier National Park may sound like the perfect winter vacation to enjoy snowmobiling, skiing, or hiking in the wintery woods, Montana has so much to offer in other seasons too. Don’t let the name fool you!

Spring offers relaxing hikes and the smell of fresh-budding flowers. Summer is perfect for a dip in the crystal-clear glacier waters, and if you’ve never visited Montana in the Fall, get your camera ready for nature’s rainbow of autumn leaves.

Glacier Haven Resort offers easy access to Whitefish, Kalispell, and Hungry Horse, MT if you’re looking for charming local shops. Plan to spend some time at Flathead river, Lake Macdonald and Hungry Horse Resevoir for the best scenery Montana has to offer!

4 star rating Randy and his wife were great! Very knowledgeable and helpful before our 5 day hike in Glacier NP. Three bedroom cabin was clean and had everything we needed. The cafe next door was perfect before stepping on to the trail. Recommend the homemade huckleberry pie. 100% pure HUCK! Very lucky to have the option to rent bear spray canisters since we were from out of town.

5 star rating Nice clean campground, we spent 3 nights in our 5th wheel there. Due to the time of year (late Fall) we just about had the whole campground to ourselves. John was very helpful with information concerning the area. As others have stated the train tracks were fairly close but we enjoyed watching the trains. We would definitely stay there again.

4 star rating This gem of a place is located 20 minutes from the entrance of West Glacier on Highway 2, centrally located between the West side and East side of Glacier National Park. The owners Randy and Julie really make you feel like a VIP guest, giving you all kinds of helpful advice (that is spot on, by the way) about the best (and off-the-beaten path) places to go in the Park, best places to go white water rafting, best hikes and more. It's surprisingly affordable for this area, the rooms are updated and modern and although a bit on the small side, they were impeccably clean and well kept. There's a TV, coffee maker, fridge and microwave in each room, plus a quiet fan (which we ran at night because we were there in summer). I am an extremely light sleeper and although they are located right on the highway and next to the train (which I was nervous about), with the white noise from the fan, I couldn't hear anything and slept really well (by the way, nearly 100% of the hotels/ cottages near West Glacier are directly on the highway and/or near the train). They have a full hot breakfast available on site every day but Monday; our options (seasonal) included eggs, omelets to order, waffles, toast, sausage, instant oatmeal, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, yogurt, juice and more (she even had gluten free bread for toast, just ask her for it), for $12.99 per person (in 2014). The restaurant is also open for dinner most nights of the week, they have home made huckleberry pie, and you can even pre-order lunches (sandwiches, etc.) for when you are out hiking in the national park. They make you feel like you're one of the family, go out of their way to be gracious and kind to people. Places like this are hard to find people, so please be nice to Randy, Julie and their family! My only feedback is, we happened to get assigned to room 5, which has a picnic table next to it, and there was a large group that decided to hang out at the picnic table until 11pm on a Saturday night--and they were loud--so we finally went outside and asked them to keep it down, as we were trying to sleep (the picnic table is right next to our window). They quieted down and went to bed shortly thereafter, so it wasn't an issue, just wish they had "curfew" hours or something for common areas. Other than that, you can tell that the owners here really care about details and are kind, warm and friendly. Love our experience here!
