About Karina Pettey, Property Manager

The Sue Family built their home on the banks of the river in 1976. The five years they spent carving out a home in the wilderness with their four children are deeply etched in family lore. They still love the beauty and remoteness of their wilderness home as well as the wildlife that frequent the property.

Karina Pettey, Property Manager purchased this cabin in 1976

Why Karina Pettey, Property Manager chose Polebridge

This property is one of the few North Fork rentals with private river access. It is an excellent location for the outdoor enthusiast to relax and enjoy the beauty of the North Fork.

What makes this cabin unique

The views from the living room, master bedroom and deck are spectacular. The fire rings are right on the edge of the river bank and take in the views as well.

Beautiful Setting. Rustic

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Polebridge/Glacier. This is one of our favorite places to be. The house setting is amazing. Gorgeous views! We took advantage of the river access and floated from Ford to the property, beached the boat for the night and the next day we leisurely floated to Polebridge and had dinner at the Northern Lights Saloon. We lost count of the fish we caught. It was amazing. The house was comfortable. It certainly was rustic which we expected but it might not be for everyone. The caretakers were responsive and kind.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin provides all the beauty and seclusion nature has to offer. We enjoyed fishing at the river, sitting and watching the sunset in the evenings and the wild life in the mornings. We stayed with teenage boys. They were never bored. We will come again and recommend this place to our friends.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from our stay in this amazing location. The cabin has enough amenities you can enjoy the comforts of home yet still feel a part of the nature you are immersed in. I haven't slept in a more comfortable bed away from home - ever. The views of the Flathead river and Glacier National Park on the far side were amazing from both the bedroom and the living area and provided a backdrop that is indescribable in its beauty. The quaint Polebridge just down the road was a great getaway for a meal and the bakery was phenomenal. Glacier National Park is very accessible just 12 miles down the road but I personally never wanted to leave the cabin and the river you can walk to for fishing and wading. It would be a great spot for rafting and kayaking from basically your front door. We had dirt bikes and four wheelers and loved exploring the area on the roads and trails. The large fire pit was so enjoyable in the evenings and was a big favorite. Owners were great to work with and the property was clean and well maintained. Definitely will return and recommend to all.

Polebridge Cabin in one of the most beautiful scenic places in the world!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this very comfortable and spacious cabin on the scenic North Fork River. The views of the river and GNP mountains are truly some of the most beautiful we have ever seen! Cabin had everything we wanted and needed, owners were very accomodating and informative of the Polebridge area. Flyfishing from the bank of the river, rafting, and stargazing were just a few of the activities we enjoyed during our stay. We look forward to our next stay!
