Overpriced, Uncomfortable and noisy, but good location.
We spent 5 nights in the Wolfe Cabin. At first we were excited, but then quickly realized the many problems.
The Good: 👍 The proximity is good. Very close to West Glacier entrance. Also, the outdoor setting of the cabin in nice. Great grass lawn and many trees. I also enjoyed the front covered porch of the cabin. The Dailey fresh towels were also nice. The outdoor fire pit was also nice, but needs some chairs.
They call this place Glacier Mountain Resort. To me, “resort” implies amenities. There are no amenities. Just simply a cabin.
Also, the kitchen was stocked with junky utensils and cookware that most people would throw away. The knives could barely cut butter or bread.
The beds are very uncomfortable. The main bedroom has a saggy, springy old mattress that is far from comfortable. The futon bed in the living room is not comfortable either. My teen age son choose to sleep on the floor instead. This certainly will not accommodate 2 adults. Perhaps two young children may be able to sleep on it.
The cabin is located very close to the highway. You will hear road noise all day and night. Some people like that. I do not. I was hoping for the tranquility of nature. Also, this cabin is very close to the train tracks. There is a loud train that goes through about every 90 mins or so. This will likely wake you up at night.
You may likely lose your deposit:
Prior to leaving we cleaned the cabin. We put the futon bed back together. We piled up the dirty towels and did the dishes and took the trash to the dumpster. I was surprised to find that we were assessed a $150 extra cleaning fee for some spilled grease in the kitchen. The owner stated this took an extra 2 hours to clean, so we lost our entire $150 deposit. Really?
Needless to say, I do not recommend Glacier Mountain Resort and the Wolfe Cabin
Getting to the place was a challenge. I could not find it using my recently updated Garmin map. It also wasn't in Google maps. The telephone number that I was given was the wrong number, so it was worrisome initially. There are signs along the road for the resort, however and the attached map provided at the time of confirmation helped narrow down the location. Once I found the site, I was able to contact Nicole. She was very helpful in getting me to my room.
My cabin was clean and neat. The area is quiet even though it is close to the main road.The kitchen has all the necessary utensils.
There is wifi but no cell service, but you can get a decent signal by walking about 100 feet toward the main road.
My family spent a week exploring Glacier National Park in the summer of 2015. We initially tried to find a room in the park but were far too late for booking. We happened upon Glaciers Mountain Resort online and were so thankful for the park being unavailable! The family run resort is clean, beautiful and the owners are both friendly and helpful. The cabin is perfect for a family vacation with all the amenities of home including a large comfortable bed, a bathroom, well stocked kitchen and a small living room that converts to a second bedroom. Cable and Wi Fi are included but spend your time playing on the immaculately maintained grounds, BBQing on the grill or enjoying a morning cup of coffee on the cabin porch. Located just 5 minutes from the park entrance, the resort is also close to Coram's stores, attractions and restaurant. We will definately return and stay here again!
Clean, comfortable and little amenities added make it feel comfortable.
If you are looking for a get away from the busy hotels in Glacier Park, this is a great alternative.
JoAnn was very nice and helpful.
There are enough utensils to cook, and after long days hiking, this was better than driving to a restaurant.
We live in Montana and rarely use A/C. We left our window open but after being kept away all night by the nearby trains, the second night we tried to shut the window. It became too warm and stuffy so we turned on the A/C. Unfortunately the A/C is in the main part of the cabin and very little air flowed into the bedroom. I think a small A/C unit for the bedrooms would solve this problem.
We stayed at Glaciers' Mountain Resort in July 2013 for 4 nights. We were able to find space in between other reservations by staying 3 nights in one unit, then the last night in another. We started in Cabin 6, and later moved to cabin 2. The property consists of 6 one-bedroom cabins on a wooded property that Gary and Joanne have landscaped with lovely flower beds. Each unit has a porch with flower pots and hummingbird feeders. They are cozy 1 bedroom cabins with full kitchens and futon sofas in the living rooms. They are decorated with charming woodland themes. Unit 6 is wolf themed and is across from the other units off by itself. It doesn't have the mountain view the others have, but it is secluded and has a firepit and picnic table in back. Unit 2 was deer, elk and fishing themed. They are less rustic than I had imagined and are in excellent shape, with fresh paint, charming decor, and everything you could need. They are perfect for 2-3 people. The location is good if you are planning on spending time at Glacier National Park, Hungry Horse, or the Flathead Rivers. It is about 45 minutes into Kalispell, 35 minutes into Whitefish, and about 35 minutes to the airport. This is ideal if you want a quiet, charming place to explore the natural beauty of the area. You should be aware that although you can't see the highway, you can hear it, especially when you are outside. This was not a big issue for us.
