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.
