Check in is any time after 3pm and up to 10pm. Our office closes at 8:00P and we're willing to do check-ins until 10:00p but after 10:00p our office is closed and you will not have access to our property. Heads up! If you do not check-in by 10pm, we will consider you a no-show. Your reservation will be cancelled and you will forfeit your deposit. So please, please be mindful of the check-in times.
Check out is 10 am. You may request a later check out time and, again, we will do our best to accommodate you but, please be aware that in the height of summer, it is difficult for us to fulfill those requests. If you have not made prior arrangements with us for a late check-out and you stay beyond 10 am, we reserve the right to charge you a late check-out fee of $150 and you will be asked to leave immediately.
Unfortunately, no. Our cottages are pet free to keep them clean and to keep allergens low.
*Please be aware that misrepresenting an emotional support animal or pet as a service animal is illegal and interferes with the lawful rights of people with disabilities. Therefore, Jacobson's Cottages reserves the right to file a legal complaint with law enforcement for the misrepresentation of a service animal.
Sorry, no. In order to keep our guests and staff safe, we will only be accepting credit card payments at this time. Please note, a valid credit card and photo ID are required of all registered guests at check-in.
No, we don't. Because our cottages were built in the 1930's as one of the original motor camps, they are smaller than a modern-size cabin and have limited floor space. For health and safety reasons, we can not allow air mattresses, cots, sleeping pads etc. We require the guests occupying the room to sleep in the bed(s), not on the floor.
That's a tricky one to answer. Yes, we do offer free WiFi but because we are located in a wilderness area, WiFi is not what you will find in a city or more developed area. High-speed internet is not available in our village so, please, plan accordingly to avoid disappointment. We say "expect it to be spotty and weak and be happily surprised when you can watch your Instastories." Besides, who wants to be on the internet with views like these?!
No. We are a completely, 100% non-smoking property and smoking/vaping is not allowed anywhere on our property. With limited areas outside of our property to smoke without disturbing our guests and neighbors, we would ask that smokers book with the other hospitality options in our area.
Yes! There are places to eat nearby. East Glacier Park has several restaurants with our favorites being Serrano’s Mexican and the Empire Lounge at Glacier Park Lodge. Breakfast goodies can be found at Glacier Park Trading Co and Brownie’s Hostel and Bakery. Two Medicine Grill is serving breakfast and lunch for casual dine-in or take-out. The Whistle Stop is also open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Great Northern Dining Room at Glacier Park Lodge and The Summit Steakhouse provide a more formal dining experience if you are looking to go more upscale.
Absolutely! The cottages are a short walk to where the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) exits the park. You will have great views of Dancing Lady Mountain and the Rocky Mountain front as you hike west into the park. We are also a short drive from Two Medicine Lake, inside the park, that has several trailheads and ample hiking trails with spectacular vistas. Here is the link for trails inside Glacier National Park.
Remember that you are in the wilderness so hiking in groups and carrying bear spray is highly recommended.
- Visit the impressive Glacier Park Lodge. GNP is the “Crown of the Continent” and Glacier Park Lodge is the crown jewel of the Park’s lodges.
- Golf at the Lodge’s 9-hole golf course.
- Take a hike on one of the many trails at Two Medicine Lake or tackle the CDT in East Glacier.
- Visit the Art Galleries and shop for local art.
- Ride your bike on some of the most scenic (and challenging) roads around without the crowds that are on the west side of the park.
- Grab your binoculars and go birding or wildlife viewing
- Canoe or kayak on Two Medicine Lake
- Go fishing. Fishing inside the Park is free. Outside of the park you will need to get a Reservation License and Permit.

Only one cottage has a full kitchen and two queen beds. We do have a community grill on the property that can be used. All of our cottages have a microwave and mini fridge.
No. If you are interested in swimming, you can try the invigorating waters of the Park. Two Medicine Lake has nice beach areas and places for kids to safely swim.
