Property Details

This rustically charming log cabin with one bedroom and a loft was built by homesteader, Mickey Wagner, for his trapping friend, a French-Canadian named Baptiste. This cozy cabin is surrounded by meadows with gorgeous views of Bad Rock Canyon.

Baptiste is located on the original homestead site, nestled among large cotton wood and birch, next to a meadow and in sight of beaver ponds. The main floor plan is open with kitchen, dining, and living room and a full bath. A bedroom with a queen bed and deck access is located on the main floor, which also includes a queen size sleeper sofa. The enclosed upper loft has a double futon and looks out over a large meadow and into the majestic canyon formed by towering Columbia and Teakettle mountains. The cabin interior, remodelled in 2018, has a fully equipped kitchen, linens, full laundry, BBQ, and front deck with picnic table and fire pit in a large, private yard. There is plenty of parking, great cell service and free WiFi.

Enjoy a great read about original homesteader, Mickey Wagner and his friend Baptiste, in John Fraley's 2018 book, "Rangers, Trappers, and Trailblazers, Early Adventures in Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park. The cabin, Baptiste, a guest house Mickey constructed, is named for Baptiste Joyal.  This enigmatic prospector and trapper may have been the first Euro-American in the South Fork.

"This Cabin is Amazing!"

by Samatha


This cabin is amazing! We used our days to explore Glacier NP which was a quick 5-10 minute drive away. It was so nice to come back after a day of hiking and have s’mores by the fire pit. Overall, we had a great time and will recommend this cabin to anyone coming to Glacier.

An historic cabin with all the modern conveniences and charm!
We loved this cabin and its location - even with all the upgrades and modern conveniences, it still retained its history and charm.

"Wonderful Quiet Retreat"

by Jennifer


Such a wonderful quiet retreat so close to Glacier yet away from the abundance of tourists. Delightfully spoiled with firewood and a full bird feeder with birds to greet me each morning! And it was so clean, just spotless!
Thank you.

"Quaint and Cozy"

This cabin is quaint and cozy in all the right ways! The kitchen was stocked with all of the necessities including a book with local recommendations!

"Awesome property"

Excellent cabin experience on an awesome Montana homestead property. Great location to access Glacier and Whitefish!

"HIghly Recommend"

by Athan


We really enjoyed our stay at Baptiste! It was the perfect combination of a rustic retreat and yet accessible and close to the park and other attractions. Loved the fire pit and wood provided! The place was clean and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook with. We had a peaceful stay and a great start to our Montana adventure! I would greatly recommend this place for anyone seeking a quiet warm cabin!

"Most Scenic Terrain Imaginable"

by Adam


Baptiste was a superbly cozy cabin nestled in the most scenic terrain imaginable. Check-in was easy and straightforward, the local tips came in quite handy, and the kitchen came fully equipped. This is the perfect home base for any trip to Glacier National Park. I’d be so lucky to return to Baptiste again!

"Like a Dream"

by Caleb


The Baptiste Trapper’s Cabin was like staying in a dream. It offered everything we needed. The cabin is conveniently located close to a grocery store and the west entrance of Glacier park. This is a perfect place for a secluded and peaceful getaway.

"Beautiful Setting"

by Ryan


This is a historic cabin in a very beautiful setting, convenient to everything! Highly recommend.

"Great Cabin"

by Allen


Great little cabin off the beaten path. Would recommend for anyone wanting to get away from the rest of town.

"Loved the loft and huge yard"

by Emily


Great cabin! Our 4 year old daughter loved the loft, huge yard, horses, and fire pit! Great place to disconnect before heading back home. Really needed the washer and dryer. Thanks, E

"Wonderful Historic Cabin"

by John C


A wonderful historic cabin in a scenic location. This was our second stay at Abbott Homestead, Baptiste was definitely our favorite! Description accurate and very clean.

"Cute cabin!"

by Caolin


Cute little cabin, perfect to get away

"Wonderful Hosts"

by Paul


This is a great place to stay if you are going to Glacier National Park. The Hosts are wonderful. The touches are thoughtful and professional. It is convenient to the park and airport. Everything you need for a nice trip!

"Unique Experience"

by Chris N


It was a unique experience and I would highly recommend Babtiste to anyone.

"Sunrise Over the Trees!"

by Maggie N


We had an amazing stay!! We loved the cabin and the views were just so beautiful!! Doyle was so kind and we loved the 15 minute drive too Glacier!! Had to wake up early to see the sunrise over the trees from the front of the cabin!! they are spectacular!

"Location, location, location"

by Dennis M


Location, location, location. What a place to stay. We stayed in the Baptiste cabin. It was amazing. My 2 boys loved the loft upstairs for sleeping. My wife and I loved the wide open spaces around the house. We looked out at the mountains at night and excitedly enjoyed them each morning over breakfast This house is very near to Glacier NP. Yet, it feels like you are an original homesteader. Way out in the middle of nowhere by yourself. But, grocery and gas within 10 min drive. If you are looking to get away to some solitude, or escape the crowd of Glacier, then this is the place

"Very nice and secluded"

by Sergey K


Very nice quiet and secluded place. Quite close to the park. The cabin itself is spacious and outfitted with latest amenities. Highly recommended,

"Thanks for a Memorable Trip!"

by Liz M


My family stopped in to stay at Baptiste on a 4,000 mile road trip of America’s best national parks. We loved the proximity of this place to Glacier and the privacy that it afforded our family of four (with two girls aged 8 and 11). They pretended the cabin was their secret hideout in the woods, and my husband and I liked sitting by the fire pit. We loved breakfast and dinner at the picnic table where we also played cards in the evening. Doyle was very responsive to our text messages and even popped in to collect trash daily. The kitchen has everything you need except coffee for the coffee maker so don’t forget it! Glacier is one of the most beautiful parks in the world so this cabin will place you right on the base of that experience. Thanks for making our trip so memorable

"Incredible Cabin"

by Melanie VB


Incredible cabin in the middle of a land, where you can watch a the animal life all around! The cabin is practical with all the facilities we can expect. It is wet well located to visit Glacier.

"Beautiful, peaceful experience"

by Cameron J


A beautiful and peaceful experience throughout. Precisely what you would want as a base camp for experiencing GNP. We had an incredible time.

"Exceptional Privacy"

by Chris


Great experience! Beautiful setting and privacy was exceptional. Plenty of wood for a great campfire! We will be back.

"Beautiful Views"

by Tracey


A relaxing, peaceful, beautiful cabin with beautiful views all around. Couldn’t recommend it more highly. We hope to come back some day!

"Great Cabin"

by Michele


We loved this cabin. It is updated perfectly. Enjoyed the kitchen and grill/deck every night, star gazing. Beautiful area. Loved the remoteness, but not far to a great grocery store.

"Very Close to Glacier National Park"

by Vedika


Excellent place, great location, very close to Glacier National Park. Huge property with cows and horses on campus. We had to check in in the middle of the night and Doyle was very supportive. He in fact left the lights on so that it would be easier for us to spot our stay. I would definitely recommend.

"Fell In Love"

by Eun


We really enjoyed the stay and fell in love with Montana. Everything was perfect for us.

"We would definitely stay again!"

by Kim


All the comforts of home in a serene country setting! We loved the cabin. We would definitely stay here again.

"Thoughtful Touches"

by Pete


Beautiful place in beautiful location. Historic and rustic on the outside, but very nicely renovated and comfortable on the inside with lots of useful amenities (washer/dryer, grill) and thoughtful touches (spices, informative guest book). Good privacy and scenic surroundings, including the Homestead's resident horses and cows.


by Gage


Beautiful and peaceful spot for a getaway.

"Best Stargazing Ever"

by Sarah


Very clean! Your place had everything that we needed as we stayed here while exploring Glacier. We spent so much time outside using the fire pit and enjoying the best star gazing that we’ve ever seen! Thank you!

"Wonderful Retreat"

by Ashlyn


This cabin was a wonderful retreat after a long days hike in glacier. It was absolutely stunning, sparkling clean, and had everything we possibly needed and more. We hope to go back we loved it so much!

"Montana at its Best"

by Dorothy


Felt like we were in the middle of Montana at its best. Check in was easy. Doyle was great. We hope to be back.

"Adorable Cabin and Perfect Location"

by Katie


This is an adorable little cabin in a perfect location to visit Glacier National Park. The hosts have thought of everything you might need, down to roasting sticks for the fire pit and refilling the hummingbird feeder (we saw so many kinds!). The location is super convenient. It's only a short drive to town for groceries or to Glacier National Park. It's secluded and private. Doyle was very helpful. We'll be back!

"A Special Place"

by Becky


Fantastic cabin that was the perfect ending for a week long road trip in Montana. The location is perfect and the place is beautiful and it had everything we needed. Truly a special place and we would come back in a heartbeat.

"Great Location"

by Randy


Baptiste is a great place to stay to get a first hand close and personal experience of the Montana country just outside Glacier. It is a great location: out in the country but only a few minutes away from Glacier and local stores.

"Away from the World!"

by Scott McN and Family


Just wanted to say that we enjoyed our stay at Abbott Valley very much. The cabin was well outfitted, neat, clean and allowed us to get away from the world for a week. It was the perfect base to explore Glaicer and beyond.

If we ever make it back to Montana, our first choice would be to stay at Abbott Valley again.

Thanks so much.

"HIghly Recommend for Glacier Visit"

by Patricia


The cabin is perfect for a short or extended stay around the Glacier National Park area. Although you feel secluded in nature, amenities are just a 10-20 minute drive away (grocery stores, restaurants, etc.). The cabin is cozy and well-equipped, but the yard is the best feature. Rosemary and Doyle have created a perfect setting for barbecuing and sitting around the campfire. We probably spent more time outside than in. I would recommend staying here for a visit to Glacier National Park.

"A Great Time"

by Karena


We had a great time- very convenient to Glacier and Doyle was very helpful.

"Loved This Cabin"

by Floyd J


We absolutely loved our stay at this cabin. The hosts made it very easy to check in and left lots of materials for us to read about the area. I would definitely recommend this cabin! We hope to return again some day and stay here.

"Very Convenient to Glacier"

by Bill


We enjoyed our stay here. An excellent location: generally quiet (except for the cows occasionally), great proximity to both Glacier National Park and Columbia Falls.

"Loving Baptiste"

by Debbie LeBlanc


Doyle, we appreciate the time and effort you made so that we could stay at Baptiste. We are loving cute and cozy. This is amazing country that you live in. Thanks again!

"Perfect Home Base"

by The Warbles


We’ve decided that this is the perfect "home base" from which to explore this little corner of God’s country. The National Park is awesome, we’ve seen every species of wild animal except a Moose… A trip down to the National Bison Range was well worth it and we drove "home" through the lovely Swan Valley. It was great to arrive "home" each evening to be greeted by three friendly dogs, the horses and the cattle in the pasture. Brought back memories of my cousins farm in Minnesota. A thoroughly glorious, relaxing week. Thank you so much. ~ The Warbles.

"Magesty of Nature"

by P. Algers


The majesty of nature is so readily evident here. Last night my son and I sat in the breakfast area without any lights on and watched the storm. We talked about how a storm makes us feel both awe and a little scared. Nature at work seems to demand a little healthy respect/fear. Baptiste provided us badly needed solitude and the Park is truly beyond words. ~ P. Algers
