Honestly, a little disapointing
3/5 stars
First of all, the apartment was really clean, and someone answered the phone when I called or texted on a Friday night or Saturday - super responsive. No complaints there AT ALL. However, we don't get away much, and of primary importance to me on a vacation is to rest. So a cheap, squeaky, bouncy bed just won't do. Well, maybe for $60/night at a really cheap hotel, OK. And the walls were PAPER thin, so everything the girls in apt A said could be heard. When I called and asked about it, the response was immediate. But we could hear just about every word. Lastly, the trailhead for St Mary's Glacier is about 1/2 mile up the road. I thought I would walk out my door and start walking ("at St Mary's Glacier trailhead.") That is probably my mistake.

Lovely area
5/5 stars
Stayed with my family of 4 and 2 dogs. Beautiful area. The stairs were a bit much for my older, larger dog. He was scared to death of them and I had to carry him up and down the first day or so. The altitude is a bit much at first but makes for some amazing weather in the summer! Property was nice and very clean. Had plenty of kitchen wares to prepare meals and had WiFi…. Was not expecting that and was a great for the kids. The road getting to property is about 6 or 7 miles up the mountain. Forgot bread for some sandwiches one day so it was about an hour to go to store in back. Would recommend getting food supplies before arrival. Only down side for my family was walking the dogs felt like running a marathon and had to keep youngest son (2 years old) inside as the porch/staircase is too dangerous for a youngster. Would stay again. Thanks
