Wonderful cabin bordering Glacier National Park and Great Bear Wilderness

Romantic vacation home in Essex
We have a wonderful base-camp for your Glacier Park and Montana wilderness adventures!

Our cabin is located in Essex, MT; a small community sandwiched between Glacier National Park and the Great Bear Wilderness. Essex is a quaint rail-road town with one business (Izaak Walton Inn) and a hand-full of year-round residents. We are nestled between the tracks and the creek and guests can expect to hear passing trains as well as the muddled sounds of Essex creek.

We are minutes away from the Walton Ranger Station (a quieter entrance entrance into the park), 30.9 miles from West Glacier, 29.7 miles from East Glacier, MT and right across the railroad tracks from hiking trails into the Great Bear Wilderness. The cabin has two porches, a deck, and is within a short minute walk of the Izaak Walton Inn where you can eat delicious meals in the Dining Car restaurant or have cocktails in the Signal Stop Bar.

The cabin is small but cozy. It has an open-floor plan that includes a king-sized bed in a loft, a full bathroom, a small but complete kitchen, and a sofa in the living room that pulls out into a full-sized bed. The space is perfect for a small family or couple.

We are both people who live and love in the outdoors. Our goal is to create a space that brings the outside in and inspires folks to get out on their next adventure. Fishing, hiking, rafting, backpacking, horse riding and nature-walking are all easy and convenient from our location!

Guest accommodations at this vacation home offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations. This Essex property provides complimentary wireless Internet access.

5/5 Excellent

Cutest cabin ever! Exactly as we expected. Well equipped and very clean.
We loved coming back to our cabin after exploring Glacier. The upper deck and the fire pit were ideal for relaxing. Izaak Walton was a bonus. It’s quaint and nostalgic

Beautiful area and cozy cabin!
We absolutely loves out recent getaway to the this little cabin in Essex. It had everything we needed to enjoy a very relaxing weekend! The little outdoor spaces were so incredible, even with a bit of train noise! The morning we left, it rained and the most peaceful feeling surrounded the little cabin. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, close to nature, this is the place for you! Thanks for sharing with us!!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Cabin
The cabin was incredible and location was perfect as well as beautiful. We could have spent hours at the cabin either sitting in the beautiful outdoor space or the upstairs balcony from the bedroom. We enjoyed the watching hummingbirds, the wind blow the Aspen tree leaves, the mountain views, the stars at night, the sound of the steam below, the smell of the evergreens and we even enjoed the trains coming and going . The cabin's cleanliness was impeccable. The bed was very comfortable, linens were great too. The location of the cabin was perfect between the West entrance and the East entrance of Glacier National Park. The host Cassie was very nice, she gave us great tips on traveling the area, obtaining groceries, restaurants and bars, hiking trails etc... We never once felt uncomfortable. In fact, we looked forward to returning to the cabin after a long days of exploring GNP...it was an amazing experience. We will return!!!

5/5 Excellent

Great little place in cozy Essex.
The cabin is a delightful little log cabin that is clean and well thought out. Traffic is low and the home and outdoor gathering area is great. Won't hesitate to return.
