Christie was quick to respond and always pleasant. The check in process was seamless and we had no issues during our stay.

My husband, 2 toddlers, and myself stayed at the boathouse and it was everything we could have hoped for and more!! We stayed mid September and it was very peaceful at the property. The view was beyond beautiful, and we were lucky enough to see a beaver and otter go for morning swims. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we plan on coming back.

Best place to stay in Glacier This was the best vacation my wife and I have ever been on. Being right on Lake McDonald was amazing. After a couple full days of hiking we spent a day just relaxing by the lake enjoying the views. We will definitely be renting this property again.

Love the Boat House Everything was as described. The view and location in the park is the most beautiful and very convenient to Apgar and West Glacier. We had such a wonderful time and will be back for sure.

Fantastic rental. I was hesitant to do a vacation rental because of prior experiences of problems with cleanliness but this rental was very clean. We loved every minute.
