1. The Going to the Sun Road.  Open when weather permits, you can be pretty much guaranteed that the whole length of the road will be open.  Take the 50 mile trip over the Continental Divide for out of this world scenery and wildlife spotting opportunities.

2. The Hungry Horse Dam and Reservoir.  Most tourists visit our area and head straight to Glacier National Park (an understandable choice), but few realize that just a mile or two off the highway that leads to the Park there is a historical dam and 34 mile long reservoir offering boating, camping and day trip opportunities.  See the eagles nest  along the 170 miles of shoreline and watch them dive into the blue water on their fishing expeditions.

3. Huckleberries!  Pick your own tasty treats or explore the various options available at local bars and restaurants.  Choose from the traditional huckleberry pie, try some taffy or quench your thirst with a huckleberry lemonade.

4. Learn more about the inhabitants of Glacier.  Try ‘Pika Patrolling’ or ‘Of Bears and Berries’, just two of the offerings available from the Glacier Institute this August.

5. Low rates!  Our rates drop in mid-August to ensure you get the most from the dog days of Summer. With prices from only $38 per person per night, our full-size Family Cabins sleep up to six with two private bedrooms, full size bath, kitchen and open living area.  Extra sleeping comes courtesy of a futon couch in the living area and a private, covered balcony overlooking local Columbia and Teakettle Mountains.  These cabins are located to the rear of property, nestled on the edge of the Flathead National Forest.  Take the kids on a short hike to the Beaver Pond, get to know our llama, Star and enjoy our outdoor spaces with a game of basketball, horseshoes or volleyball.  Espresso Bar, Saloon and Smokehouse located on site.

(based on maximum occupancy in Family Cabins from Aug 21 – Sept 16)
