Property Details

Accommodations: House, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, (sleeps up to 6)
The adjoining, yet separate and private, 1200 foot Alpine Cottage can accommodate up to six persons and is reminiscent of a Swedish country house. The living room/dining room has a vaulted ceiling and skylights, and nearly floor to ceiling windows reveal a majestic view of a mountain meadow surrounded by forest and mountain peaks in the distance. The pine walls surrounding the living room and dining room are hand painted with mountains, flowers, and birds, making it look like an artist's cottage. Two couches (one a sofa bed) and an overstuffed chair in the living room make a cozy place to relax and visit. An arched doorway leads to a fully equipped kitchen with an arched window between the kitchen and dining room. French doors from the dining room open out to a large deck with grill and deck chairs, the perfect place to relax and take in the stunning view of mountains and wildlife.

Up the stairs from the living room, the cozy pine walled loft bedroom has twin beds, skylights, a sitting area, and a balcony window that opens out to the living room below with a view to the meadow and mountains.

The master bedroom includes a queen bed hung about with romantic white linen curtains and a small chandelier over the bed. A glass door leads into a private bathroom with a whirlpool bathtub. The hallway from the master bedroom leads to a second full bathroom, complete with stackable washer/dryer.

The Alpine Cottage has a deck overlooking the meadow where wildlife may be seen. The BBQ grill and a table with chairs makes it a wonderful gathering place.

Everything at the mountain cleft resort was exactly what we anticipated or even better! The rooms were beautifully decorated, beds were great, plenty of towels, and the kitchens had all we needed for making our meals. We were a family of 25 persons, grandchildren ages 9 mos to 23 and all had a great time- plenty of games and even toys for the little ones to "play house." I would highly recommed this for any age groups to enjoy a lovely place near the west entrance to Glacier-one of the most beautiful National Parks!

I reserved this for a family reunion. It was fantastic. We could fit everyone under one roof, very comfortably. There was 16 of us and never was there waiting for the bathroom or anything the like. The place was fantastic and had everything we needed for any meal we needed to cook. The deck was the favorite place to hang out and the fire pit couldnt be beat. It was only 20 minutes to Glacier and 20 minutes to Columbia Falls. Secluded enough but close to everything. Saw two black bears within 2 miles of the place, but none in Glacier of course. Family said they wouldnt mind coming back her for every family reunion. Grandma, who is getting up there, says "if this place was closer to home then absolutely, but I don't like traveling anymore" So it looks like the one stay is going to be it for our family. In the 18 years we have been doing family reunions this rental takes the cake.

Our family has just returned from a magical week at Mountain Cleft Retreat, refreshed in body mind and spirit. This wonderful property offers comfort, seclusion, and an environment to enhance wonderful family gatherings. The special touches in decor, convenience, and proximity to Glacier Park and the Flathead River helped us maximize our times of recreation and enjoyment. In addition to 4 separate bedrooms, other areas are available for groups to find space for quiet reading, television viewing or wonderful meals together. The kitchen is well equipped and efficient. Refrigerator/freezer held food for 12 for the entire week. Outdoor grill and garden, yet another space for family enjoyment.

We just had a great week here. Everything was first class. This is like having your own house in the middle of thousands of acres. Beautiful drive to Glacier Nat. Park, Whitefish and other fun places. The owner was awesome and gave true "southern hospitality"...Montana style.
