May 6-8, 2017; Great little cabin with a great view and 5 minutes to the Glacier National park entrance. The cabin had all the cooking utensils and a gas stove which we used at night. We sat on our deck and had wine an cheese every evening after exploring the park. Bed was so, so comfortable, satellite TV was fair in channel selection. We also purchased bear spray at the reception center/store for $44.50 which is good insurance if you encounter a bear. Also you cannot not take bear spray back in your check in luggage, so donate it to the rangers as they have to purchase their own.

We stayed in the hotel part of this; we got to Glacier NP before the season so it was fairly quiet and uncrowded both at the hotel and the park (BTW...the park road was only open for 10 of its 50 miles).
This is an outdoor center, shop, about 8 cabins and lodge less than a mile from the entrance (west entrance) to Glacier. Cabins include porch, gas BBQ, small functional kitchen, etc. Very clean, very functional, not rustic, not luxury, comfortable and a good deal. People very friendly. I can't comment on the services, rafting, etc.

We went out to celebrate our 1st anniversary with friends who were celebrating their 21st. We stayed in a bigger 2 story 2 bedroom/2 bath cabin which had both a full and stocked (dishes, utensils, cooking) kitchen upstairs and a wet bar downstairs. Each floor had a gas fireplace on both floors to keep us warm during our end of April visit. We were just minutes (< 4) from the entrance of Glacier National Park which was convenient as that was our destination for this portion of our trip. They have a small gift shop on property with a stocked fly fishing shop for the fisherman. We had read other reviews about the train noise - and yes it does exist and it was more from the horn than the actual train going by, We notice it more the 1st night than the 2nd - maybe because we were tired from all the hiking we had done in the park. We did not visit any of the restaurants or shops, other than the train station/museum as we were there before the season started and were closed.

We used a cabin outside the Glacier National Park boundary as a basis of operations for a family reunion. Some of us stayed in the cabin, others camped in the park. When the rain came, we all played cards at the cabin.

The cabin was clean, well-stocked with equipment for cooking, and everything was in working order. The cabin was quite comfortable. We had no complaints. The beds were comfortable.

The location was great for our needs. It was a half mile outside the park. The Center has a little store on the property. We were able to get some necessary clothing, sunscreen, etc. there.

Stayed: August 2016, travelled with family
