See RATES page for 2015. Book now for 2015!

Do you want to stay in the mountains but not be stranded amongst crowds of other Glacier Park visitors?   Looking for a welcoming place to escape your everyday fast-paced life?  

 

Our guest cabin retreat is smack up against the western side of Glacier National Park.  The Northwest side of the park is less developed.  You’ll stay in an area giving you more of a wilderness experience than the front country lodging

located in and around most of the park.  

Don't be surprised if you see bear (black bear or grizzly),

moose, elk, mountain lion or wolves while enjoying

your base camp at Polebridge Ranch.

 

Tucked away in the untamed North Fork valley Polebridge Ranch is located nine miles north of the Camas Road entrance to Glacier National Park ...and about five miles before the Polebridge Ranger Station entrance in an area called ..the "North Fork".  

Other lodging accommodations in the North Fork can be either very rustic

(old, breezy, hard to access, outhouse, no water, no shower, feel like you are living with other people, etc.)

or can be quite taxing on your vehicle to access due to rough road conditions.  

The North Fork Road north and beyond us tends to become a safari all its own.  

It can be fun but if you plan to venture there make sure the vehicle you are driving is properly equipped.  

 

Polebridge Ranch is surrounded by Glacier National Park, Flathead National Forest and State of Montana land.  There isn’t much private land in the North Fork valley.  All of this is available to you yet our guest accommodations are easily accessible from Glacier National Park via the Camas Road entrance to the park.   Even better your base camp is handy to great food, a full-service bar and great hospitality just a short walk away at the Home Ranch Bottoms.    

 

While Polebridge Ranch is located in the pristine North Fork valley,

(A valley that is essentially a wilderness with a road in it), a day trip to Logan Pass, St. Mary, Many Glacier, Two Medicine or into Whitefish, Bigfork, Kalispell and Columbia Falls is simply a scenic outing.  Day trips around the park are far more convenient from

Polebridge Ranch than from any other North Fork lodging option.  

You get the best of Northwest Montana, a mountain retreat experience, wildlife sightings and few people all in a cozy wilderness setting.

We offer charming accommodations at several levels.  

Read about our efficiency housekeeping cabin,

The Bowman.  It is great for those who want more space, a kitchen and a full-amenity retreat.  The Kintla is our

studio cabin option.  

 

The Numa Peak and The Kootenay cabins are offered for our budget minded guests.  All of our cabins have their own private full bathrooms.  The Bowman and The Kintla have large porches with chairs and picnic tables.  Each cabin has its own fire ring for gatherings to recap your day’s adventure while enjoying an open fire under a clear Montana star-filled sky.

 

Even though Polebridge Ranch is located in a wonderful  natural environment there is no need to “rough it”!

 

None of our cabins require the use of an outhouse (Ick and Yuck!).  

 

All cabins are equipped with a full private bathroom in the cabin, including a shower, with hot and cold running water.

 

 All of our lodging is smoke free and

no pets are permitted on premises.  

Polebridge Ranch offers a terrific staging area location for exploring Glacier National Park and beautiful Northwest Montana.  Our cabins are convenient and comfortable, located in a wonderful wilderness alpine setting providing you with an awesome laid back retreat.  

 

The North Fork name comes from the "North Fork of the Flathead River" a wild and scenic designated river that flows along the entire length of the western border of Glacier National Park as it flows from Canada to Flathead Lake.  The North Fork valley is prized for blue-ribbon trout fly-fishing, river rafting and kayaking, mountain biking and, wildlife and scenery photography.
