Wonderful Glacier Homestead
Glacier Homestead was our dream venue. All our guests came together for 2 days making it not only a wedding but also a relaxing mini vacation. I wanted to sit in every area just to soak in the different views and decor. Many of my guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. My daughter and her husband said it was perfect. Doesn't get much better than that!Sent on 05/18/2019
Thank you to Terri, Amy and Cassie, couldn't have been more helpful!

Spectacular Outdoor Setting Next to Glacier NP!
Glacier Outdoor Center was the perfect setting for our wedding! We were looking for an outdoor venue in close proximity to Glacier National Park, in addition to having the convenience of lodging on site, outdoor activities, and GRC met just that. We booked about a year and a half in advance and are so grateful we did. The staff were very friendly, professional, and accommodating. Special thanks to our day-of-coordinator, Amy, for making the planning and set-up a seamless process! The cabins were clean, cozy, and rustic (loved the Montana charm!). The venue is stunning with the mountain peaks in the backdrop. There’re several trout ponds on site, so some of our friends and family got to enjoy some fishing! We organized a white-water rafting trip too with our friends and family and had an absolute blast! (The rafting office is just down the road). Our guests spoke so highly of how much they enjoyed there stay here! We’d recommend GRC over and over!Sent on 09/10/2019

Having worked with Terry & Cassie for multiple weddings, I have nothing but good things to say. They and their crew put their heart and soul into every wedding I've been part of. Not only one of Glacier Park (and this valley's) most perfectly located venues, but they have everything to offer all in one place. Great owners, staff, location and venue! - Jennifer Mooney
