Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Polebridge - Numa Peak Kootenay

27' by 27' 2 story with 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Kitchen, Dining and Living Room Area

Kootenay is located on Numa Peak, more than 20 pristine acres less than 3 miles from the Bowman Lake Entrance of Glacier National Park. Kootenay is 20 miles off the grid and it is powered almost completely by solar energy. Water is supplied by a well on the property. The well is fed by mountain streams with the water table below. There is only one property, rarely used, between Kootenay and the source of all the water. Additionally,we have gone 'green' wherever possible. There are 4 log cabins (Kootenay, Kintla, Ptarmigan and Siyeh) each with spectacular views of the peaks of Glacier National Park. Kootenay has 2 bedrooms each with a queen bed, full bath, full kitchen, dining area and living area. There is a large front deck looking into the park with table and chairs.The master bedroom also includes a private sitting area as well as a private deck facing into Glacier National Park. Haycreek runs year round and is situated directly behind the cabin. It is home to the endangered Bull Trout.

About Mary Bassingthwaighte

Mary worked in Glacier National Park at Many Glacier Hotel from 1977-1980. Finally, in 1992 our family was able to move to Missoula, MT. On one of our visits to Glacier National Park, a small 'For Sale' sign was spied on the side of the road. We have now spent 20 years growing as a family in the North Fork Valley. Kira, Ian and Tristan have spent many wonderful days here during their childhood. As their mother, exposing this pristine nature and beauty felt so natural and necessary. Now in her twenties, Kira and I are working together to share our spectacular gem with all of you. Pictured here is the original family cabin which we recently remodeled and now stands as the Kootenay Cabin. Since this picture was taken, we have also expanded and attached a lodge area for our family to stay when we visit. We can assure you that although the family cabin and the Kootenay cabin are attached, the rental is separated from ours by a locked hallway and remains very private with its own entrance and great distance from the other three rental cabins. The addition was started as a way to have room for the kids when they returned with their families. Then the idea of having a place that allowed other people to experience the beauty of the North Fork Valley and Glacier came about. So here we are today trying to share this rare beauty with the rest of you.

Mary Bassingthwaighte purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Mary Bassingthwaighte chose Polebridge

Numa Peak has some of the most fantastic views of the mountains to be found even up in the North Fork Valley. People slow down as they turn our corner on the North Fork Road as the peaks come into view. The historic Mecantile in Polebridge, 1 mile down the road, offers the basic needs to campers, tourists and backpackers. It is internationally known for its' baked goods of all types (truth be told, the huckleberry turnovers are the real reason we bought the property in 1992…) Polebridge is also home to the Northern Lights Saloon. Excellent fare is often accompanied by music played by locals and visitors from around the world.

What makes this cabin unique

Numa Peak has beauty and solitude but is just around the corner from all that the North Fork has to offer. Haycreek sings the music of mountain streams all year long. Bowman Lake and all its splendour is less than 10 miles away. The main entrance to Glacier National Park is less than one hour by car and the drive itself is stunning. Beyond the views and location, our 4 cabins have been built to offer the most comfortable and relaxing stay. You may be drawn outdoors by the adventurous opportunities, but even a day at the property would be a day well spent.

Beautiful location, great vacation!

  • 4 out of 5
My family rented three of the cabins at Numa Peak for a group vacation. The main cabin has a spacious, open floor plan, along with a great covered porch that made a great meeting place for everyone, even when it was raining. Everyone cooked, ate and played games at the main cabin, it worked very well. We loved that the Polebridge area is calm and peaceful and yet close to Glacier Park with all it has to offer. Everyone indulged at the Polebridge Merc and some rented water toys to take to nearby Bowman Lake. I would recommend this property to my friends.

Quiet Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this cabin for 4 nights. It is very quiet and has a nice view. We would highly recommend this cabin. You will find a spacious master bedroom with it's own deck. The guest room is small, but my parents didn't complain at all (for their 2 night stay) and said the bed was comfortable. It is about a 30 min drive from Glacier National Park. We went into the park each day and didn't mind the drive (other than the gravel road for part of the trip). There are steep stairs to go upstairs to the bedrooms and bathroom. The Northern Lights Saloon was a great little restaurant in Polebridge, but they extremely busy when we were there and had to wait a long time for our food. It's a very laid back atmosphere.

The Place to Go if you want to completely relax.

  • 5 out of 5
We so enjoyed our visit to Mary's newly remodeled, beautiful, quiet, peaceful space. I say "Mary" because we felt so welcomed that we made a new friend too. She is delightful. She was responsive to every need, indeed asking if she could do anything for us or provide for us.
Our favorite things were the amazing mattress, the balcony, the creek and the quiet. We really enjoyed the restaurant in the unique town of Polebridge. The creek behind the home was a safe place for our 8 year old daughter who played there so happily for hours. We felt so fortunate to have found this remote gem of a retreat.
We were also surprised to see how to live in a more 'green' way. It was inspiring and overall a gentle experience. I can only tell you that I still feel calm after three weeks, so I guess that tells you something if you need to get away from it all! My daughter adds, "I promise it's good!"

Numa Peak is located on 21 acres of beautiful forest. We have our main Kootenay cabin located at the south side of the property with a small, clear, freshwater creek running behind. Our three smaller cabins, Kintla, Ptarmigan, and Siyeh are situated at the north side of the property in the meadow facing some of the stunning mountains of West Glacier. The summer offers so many activities in this remote valley. Whether you are interested in taking a canoe out on the water, hiking through the mountains, fishing, hunting, swimming (only recommended for those with thick skin!), camping, bicycling, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, driving the Going-to-the-Sun road for some of the most spectacular views in the Northwest, or simply watching for wildlife, this is the perfect spot to do it all. We are located just 10 miles from one of the entrances to Glacier National Park and less than one hour driving to the main entrance. Beyond the benefits of Numa Peaks location, our cabins are designed for you to enjoy a cozy, quiet, and serene getaway. Each cabin has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room with a wood stove, and a beautiful front porch facing Numa Peak, our namesake. We have picnic tables outside of each cabin and an outdoor grill for cooking during those beautiful summer evenings. If you find yourself relaxing outside after the sun goes down, the stars are magnificent. And if you're really lucky, the aurora borealis may show itself, maybe.

Notes:
Numa Peak has four cabins and all are handcrafted by local builders with many of the logs coming from the property itself. Kootenay is the original family home and largest of the four. It is attached to the owners lodge which now functions as the family cabin when we are visiting, but we can assure renters that their space will remain private and secluded from us. You will have a separate entrance and the cabins remain separate via an empty hallway and locked door. Please note that we are literally off the grid and power is provided by 2 large solar panels, an inverter and battery system with backup generator, and propane. We are trying to be as sustainable as possible, using the sun, wood from the Numa Peak property, energy efficient equipment, and providing jobs to the North Fork locals!
