Enjoy private beach access to Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. The Walsh Guest Cottage is an exclusive getaway for two. The Cottage sits on the historic lake-front property of Thomas J. Walsh, US Senator for Montana from 1913-1933.

Unplug and relax among the old growth cedar forest and swim in the crystal clear waters of Glacier's largest lake, if you can handle the cold! This place is an ideal basecamp for adventuring in Glacier; whether you prefer to hike, fish, ride or paddle.

The space
The Cottage is a studio bedroom with a King bed, a small kitchen table and a full bath en suite. There is not a full kitchen, however, there is a mini fridge, keurig coffee, microwave, electric kettle, dishware, and utensils.

Born and raised in Montana I love the outdoors and exploring new places! As a Property Manager and former Ranger in Glacier National Park I love sharing my local knowledge with people who are new to the area.
