The present day Polebridge Mercantile boasts a bakery, general store and cabins, serving the most adventuresome families, floaters, fishers, hikers, bikers, artists and “lifers”. Nestled up to the primitive west entrance to Glacier National Park, on the Wild and Scenic North Fork of the Flathead River and in the North Fork Valley is where you can find them. 35 miles from pavement, electricity and “civilization” you can find fabulous baked goods, spices, t-shirts, prints, books, etc. from Polebridge artists and complete separation from the everyday grind. No street lights. No cell phone service. Unbelievably serene views. We ate the most melt in your mouth homemade sandwiches and literally bought every last one of their famous huckleberry coconut macaroons. The food alone is worth the drive out there, but if you don’t stick around longer than that I promise you’d be missing out! And, for just $35 per night you can rent one of their adorable cabins and take it all in even more.
The next time we come out here, it’s on my list of things that absolutely cannot be missed!
