I stopped by there yesterday to check out the gift shop. The selection is unique and surprisingly doesn't carry a lot of cheap junk. Many of the items are fair trade. The baskets are very nicely made and reasonably priced. The store has an earthy...More

Ridiculously hoaky! Drive by and keep right on driving! There is nothing at this place that is worth seeing.

Nice place to stop and do a tour, but super expensive. If you have balance issues or are in a wheelchair, it is not accessible.

My hubby always plans some fun stops along our Harley ride and this one was a hit. Whether you believe or not, this place DOES make you wonder. Just go with it! Have fun. We sure did.

This place is located along the main highway on the way to Glacier National park. Very interesting place to visit. Great people that work there and a great experience for people of all ages. It's an experience you'll remember for a long time!

There is not a lot of walking, however, the walking you do have to do is downhill and the house you stand in is slanted, on a hill, making it difficult to stand up for anyone with good knees!

It's at 7800 Hwy 2 East, on the left side of the road as you leave Columbia Falls. Easily visible from the highway.
