Recently we have had some wild life visitors of the massive type…. Several moose have wandered through looking for adventure and probably munchies! The picture attached is a pregnant Cow...

Glacier’s North Fork Stands Out

Glacier’s North Fork Stands Out

Vivid displays of color spread out over the North Fork Road right now.  As you head north toward the Canadian boarder the brilliant fall colors fade off into the jagged Canadian Rockies. When we take this road less travel toward our neighbors at the “Polebridge Mercantile” we are not surprised when we witness the wildlife that claims this territory as their home. Just the other day a momma bear and her cub caused me to stop and wait...

We certainly have seen evidence of wild life around the north fork.  Just the other day we pulled out of the driveway and there in the middle of the road was a Cow Moose… strutting across the road.  They are truly magnificent animals,  but as magnificent as they are, if irritated. they can become dangerous. Keeping our distance they ignore us as we snap a picture or two!  Love this place.

I am so excited to share with you that we have seen some of the first blooms of Bear Grass for 2015! We are expecting a full house this weekend so I was working in the yard making sure we are ready and there was the most beautiful, delicate, white bloom, peeking out among the new ferns. I was reminded, once again, why this property is such a blessing and why we feel in love with it the first time we drove up the driveway! We should...

We have been working hard to get ready for our Open house Saturday, May 8th. Most importantly, we are nearly ready to welcome guest from all over the world this summer. Took a much needed break and went to town for supplies. We were about a mile up the road when I had to stop the car and wait for a cow moose and her two youngsters to cross the road in front of us. What a site to see. I am told that they do stop by our pond for...

Winter on the North Fork

Winter on the North Fork


Posted By on Feb 2, 2015

We are truly in the middle of a winter wonderland here on the North Fork.  As I look out the window on a clear day, I can see Glacier’s Apgar Mountain Range majestically jutting up, as if it demands attention.  If the moon is out, the range’s snow capped mountains glow through the night.  I still can’t seem to take in the full beauty of this place. Last week, I had a very special guest here from New York.  I watched...

We are so thrilled to have hosted a family of 10 at the Inn for the Thanksgiving holiday.  What a precious time with an amazing family.  They came to us from the east coast and Montana.  What a joy it was to serve them and watch as they reunited and quickly became reacquainted.  Their time here was special for us and our family.  Our daughter, Cassie, and her boyfriend, Justin, stood in for us and received many praises from this...

Fall on the North Fork is Disappearing


Posted By on Oct 11, 2014

Fall is definitely on its way out on the North Fork and there is a hint of winter in the air now.  The flowers have dried up and are all gone now. We are looking forward to our winter guests as we button up the hatches and put away all that reminds us of summer.  We will have firewood ready for the stove soon.  We love to hear the crackling as the fire takes off and roars….
