Very nice property and very well-kept. So peaceful on the back porch. It was nice to come back to solitude after a day at the park. Also, numerous trails/lakes to explore close to the cabin.
Beautiful Secluded Home
We loved this property more than any other we have ever stayed at. It is thoughtfully and beautifully decorated, it is near an entrance to the Park (Polebridge) that has easy access to Kintla and Bowman lakes. We enjoyed the merc and the saloon and enjoyed being away from it all. Our kids loved it! We want to come back someday!
In our travels we have stayed in remote locations and in very comfortable homes, but the Lodge was the first time we ever experienced both at the same time. This home is very well-constructed and solid with large, functional spaces and comfortable furnishings. And the owners have thought of every little detail from a fully-stocked library of books to clean windows to take in the views. During our visit the daytime temperatures were in the 90s and smoke was washing across the entire West, but it stayed comfortable and cool in the house. We experienced privacy, tranquility, and plenty of creatures running about in the field. We really enjoyed hanging out in Polebridge, only a short drive from the Lodge, as well as driving to Glacier and the National Forest. We had no problem with the owners' request that we conserve water and energy and doing so did not detract from the experience at all. In our view it's beyond luxurious to have hot and cold running water, a full stove, and climate control while off the grid. The owners clearly are very attached to their Lodge retreat and it shows in the impeccable quality - so we are grateful they were willing to share it with us!
Thank you Rachael for your kind review. We are so happy that you enjoyed it even though it wasn't under the greatest circumstances with all of the smoke in and around Glacier. We hope you can return another year when the area isn't plagued with the terrible fires.
A wonderful headquarters for this unique corner of American wilderness
Having long hoped to visit this wildest corner of the lower 48 states, it was a great pleasure to stay at Lupine Meadows. The home is the embodiment of what is great about the national parks at their best. The cabin (it is quite grand for that name) has a beautiful setting (the views across the meadow into the park!), meticulous design integrated into the environment, and is extremely well outfitted. The fact that the home was designed and cared for by long time Park rangers is clear. The love of Glacier is expressed in the home and the care of all the details is evident in all aspects. From the massive log supports of the soaring ceilings to the gorgeous river stones in the fireplace, the home is an extension of the classic Glacier aesthetic. However, it is also very thoughtfully outfitted, especially important given its distance from modern society. Many rentals look great in the photos, but have slapped together details. Here that is not the case at all. Even the kitchen knives were well-sharpened (almost never happens!). Polebridge itself is charming and lived up to expectations. We rafted the North Fork, ventured into the Park's backcountry, and even saw a wolf (in addition to to the usual, less mysterious natural cast of characters seen around Glacier). I am very grateful to the owners for sharing their home with us and allowing me to bring my family to this wonderful and unique corner of our great country.
Thank you so much Robert for taking the time to write such a detailed and glowing review. We are very pleased that the cabin/lodge met and exceeded your expectations and you got to experience Glacier's wonders. Glacier truly is a very special place in our country and seeing a wolf is a very rare treat.
Unique Lodge with beautiful Glacier views
To stay in this quiet, relatively remote area, on the doorstep of north Glacier was a real treat. This is a beautiful lodge with rustic touches and views of Glacier peaks. The owner Sue was very helpful, via emails & phone calls, and helped us with all our questions, so our group of 3 couples could feel assured of a great stay. This home has everything from a gorgeous fire place to heat via thermostat, to a new washer/dryer - so every comfort is there. Sue sent detailed written information about the lodge so we knew where things were and how to operate things. She also sent hikes, and places to eat & sightsee near the cabin. The comfort and style of the lodge amidst incredible scenery, fishing, privacy, quiet, wildlife and more, made for a week we will never forget. We are grateful the owners share their beautiful home with renters and appreciated all their great help. We hope to return for sure!
Thank you for taking the time to do a review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and felt you were well informed about the property and the area. That is always our goal.
We had a very disappointing stay at this property. The owner was suspicious and fearful of our intentions of using her home (we were there for a family wedding) and repeatedly asked us how many were staying at the property, although we kept insisting no more than six would be sleeping there. The home, while in a gorgeous setting, was filled with notes of what not to do in the home ( fireplace, garbage disposal, septic system, etc). We did not have sufficient towels or toilet paper for our stay. She deducted from our deposit for a very frivolous reason, even after paying a very hefty cleaning fee. I would encourage you not to stay here.
This was a challenging situation from the beginning. The guest was very stressed about the wedding when she contacted me. Since we are off the grid I always want to be sure our guests understand where they are going and that this is not just a rental, but our home. It's apparent that this guest did not take the time to thoroughly read either the agreement or the Welcome Letter I sent. We had not received their final payment a week before arriving and it was clearly stated it was required at least 30 days prior to arrival. I contacted her and she blamed me for not reminding her. I did not need to contact her but did not want them to arrive and not be able to get into the cabin. In regard to the towels it is stated in the Welcome Letter how many towels are supplied per person during a one week rental and there is a washer and dryer available in the cabin. As for the toilet paper, we keep extra under the bathroom sink but I will check on that. I never want people to run out! The guest claimed our housekeeper arrived 30 minutes prior to the check out time, but that was not the case. She arrived 30 minutes after the time and the guests didn't vacate until an hour after the check out time. The time was clearly stated in the agreement, explained afterward and even mentioned in an email right before their arrival.
In the 11 years we have opened our home to guests, this is the first time we have ever had someone unhappy with their stay or my communication with them. It is only the second time I felt the need to deduct money from a deposit. That amount will go directly to our housekeeper.
I encourage you to read the other reviews and come to your own conclusions. I spend a lot of time talking and emailing with potential guests, as this location is not appropriate for everyone and I want people to have a wonderful experience and vacation.
La région de la rivière North Fork est une zone sauvage et pittoresque officielle. Les propriétés sont hors de la grille et de fournir leur propre électricité. Glacier National Park est notre cour avant et couvre l'Whitefish notre arrière-cour. Des activités telles que la randonnée, l'escalade, flotter voyages, la pêche, le kayak et le canoë abondent.
La communauté de Polebridge est comme visiter le vieil ouest. Le Mercantile (sur le registre historique) est célèbre pour ses fraîchement cuits griffes d'ours de l'airelle, des biscuits et des sandwiches chauds ainsi qu'une variété de souvenirs pour vous rappeler de votre voyage. (La propriétaire de la loge y vend ses œuvres). Le Northern Lights Saloon sert une cuisine délicieuse ainsi qu'une variété de bières, de vins et de boissons non alcoolisées.
Il y a une pompe à gaz à la Mercantile mais il est recommandé que vous remplissez et faites vos courses en ville pour une plus grande variété.
