Great Location for visiting Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Teakettle Ranch. The view from the deck was outstanding. Having the propane fire pit on the deck was nice, as under the dry conditions we wanted to stay away for making a fire in the fire pit in the back yard, The cabin is comfortable, well maintained, and well furnished. A short easy drive from the cabin to the West Glacier entrance was nice convience. Ty was was very flexible and accommodating when it was decided to extend our stay by a day.

Second time, good as the first

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Ty's place twice now, and both experiences were great. The cabin is cozy, private and clean. It's located close enough to Columbia Falls to make it convenient to shop for groceries or even take in a high end dinner at one of the local restaurants. If you love hiking, as we do, Glacier is minutes away. We will definitely be back. Thanks Ty!

Nice secluded cabin

  • 4 of 5

Nice getaway in a pretty setting. Farther from Glacier Park (20+ minutes) than we would have liked. Good place for more than two people. Ty was courteous and responsive.

basement bedrooms "damp"

  • 2 of 5

The good- kitchen had plenty of pots, pans etc... decent living room size, no issue with lack of power or hot water. Only spoke with owner over the phone and he seemed like a nice guy.

The not so good- The bedrooms in the house are located in a walk out basement and they had a damp musty oder. My kids, all who have allergies, could not sleep in the basement bedrooms and used the sofas and recliner chairs upstairs. the master bedroom only has one small window that opens which we put a fan in so my wife and I could sleep in there. The other bedroom had 1 window that opened but no screen so we could not air out the room without letting all the bugs in. Most windows in the house either do not open or do not have screens. Outside deck has a very steep staircase (they must not have building codes in this part of the state) with no railing and it was roped off so no way to access the yard unless you went through house and around. Pictures do not show that directly to your left as you approach the home the owner has a large metal building and in the yard and driveway piles of wood, old machinery etc...

Nothing to screen your view from all the stuff. I saw in other reviews the owners said he cleans the place himself but lots of dead flies and dust in window sills. Given it cost 1K for 3 nights it should have been spotless.

Owner's Response: First off thank you for your review. Sorry that your kids have bad allergies and I wasn't able to wash the sheets and linens in special detergent as you requested. I have never had anybody complain about a musty smell or dampness it is a cool basement. The stairs from the deck going down to the ground are clearly marked do not use because they are still under construction. This past winter my slop collapsed under a heavy snow load so I am under construction and that is why there are boards and Machinery in the side yard that does not affect any mountain View. I do most of the cleaning and take pride in it. However, sometimes flies can die in between cleanings. Once again I do not feel my house is kid friendly and $225 a night is a steel for what you get try to rent a nice hotel room for that.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Teakettle Ranch cabin was the perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day. So close and convenient to Glacier National Park and the surrounding area. The cabin was charming, spacious, private, peaceful and very comfortable. I didn't know being 'off grid' could be so comfortable, no inconvenience at all. We spent all our evenings on the back deck watching the sun set and roasting marshmallows.

Enjoyed meeting our host, Ty and he kindly made recommendations for the area. He even pointed out the cabin was surrounded with huckleberries which we enjoyed picking to add to our morning pancakes.

I would happily recommend this cabin to all my friends. A great Montana experience!
