“Best Location!”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

If you're planning an extended stay at Glacier National Park, Don's Hideaway is the perfect location for coming "home" to at night.
Nestled in an easily-accessible area with about 5-6 other cabins, Don's Hideaway is clean and unbelievably convenient to many of GNP's best hikes/views.
The owners are extremely friendly, but not obtrusive. They kept trying to offer us more towels, kitchen supplies, etc. There was a vase of wildflowers (that were probably just picked from the yard!) to greet us upon our arrival.
The cabin is not a 5-star hotel, but the bathroom is large, there are plenty of sleeping areas, and it is very clean. It could use a bit of updating, but they also run a nearby restaurant (Two Sisters Cafe - which is excellent).
Book early...we had to be a bit flexible with our dates even though we were 8 months away from our visit.

Stayed August 2010, travelled with family

We have traveled to the East Glacier Park area several times and have stayed at other lodgings in the area but found Don's Hideaway to be the very best!
The first review tells about the cabin etc but I wanted to add other details. There are several log cabins that sit in this area. These cabins were once a motel....most of the cabins are rented to college students that are working at 2 Sisters or perhaps the park. The owners live in one of the houses. There were several other cabins that have been remodeled and appear to have owners present. One feels safe in this area.

I can't say enough about the cabin....we were allowed to bring our doxie. Most places in the area do not take pets. The cabin is spacious and plenty of sleeping room. The kitchen has all appliances minus a microwave. There is a propane bq on the porch.

2 Sisters is a great place to eat....there are places to eatin St. Mary, Babb as welll as in the park

Be sure to go to Browning the the Indians of the Plains museum...If you wish information about Browning please contact me

If you want air conditioning, a telephone, an internet connection or a television, this place is not for you. If you want a roomy, comfortable log cabin in the middle of nowhere, but close to paradise, this may be for you. This little known hideway is located on the east side of Glacier National Park, north of St. Mary's and south of Babb, Montana.

Don's Hideway is a log cabin gem operated by the Two Sisters of Montana in Babb. The road has potholes and the paint is peeling, but you can look out your kitchen window and almost touch deer grazing. A local crow will land on your shoulder and beg for food, so be ready! The cabin is rustic but roomy and will easily sleep seven, with two bedrooms, a pull-out couch and a day bed on the porch. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, stove and microwave, there is baseboard heat in the main rooms and a nice bath with a hot shower and separate toilet stall. Like I said, there is no television, but if you will look in the cabinet in the living room you will find Monopoly, Yatzee and magazines to pass your time in the quiet splendor of an evening at the top of the world.

If you want to eat out, no problem! Right at the entrance to the road to the cabins is the Two Sisters Restaurant, a brightly colored building that offers great food at reasonable prices. If you want heartier fare in the form of HUGE, delicious steaks, want not, the Cattle Baron Supper Club is just right up the road a ways.

I'm saving the best for the last....location, location, LOCATION. Don's Hideway is located just east of the greatest National Park in the country, Glacier. Just west is Many Glacier and just north is Chief Mountain and Waterton, Canada, perhaps the most beautiful setting in the park.

What else can I say? Highly Recommended!
