Charlo apartment description

Welcome to the Mission Mountains Vacation Rental — a charming second-floor guest suite overlooking some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of western Montana. This is a secluded retreat — yet easily accessible via U.S. Highway 93.  

Imagine sipping your morning coffee on your quiet, private deck while watching the sun come up over the glorious Mission Mountains, rising 7000 vertical feet from the valley floor.

During your stay you may just want to rest and take in the peace and beauty of this special place. (As a special benefit, the guest suite sits above a small, private licensed acupuncture clinic, and guests are welcome to schedule a treatment during their stay.)

But if you like activities, we are located in a recreation paradise — the Mission Valley of the Flathead Indian Reservation, in the heart of the Northern Rockies. Right here you will find forty private acres to roam along lovely Marsh Creek, next door to the world-class birding of the Ninepipe National Wildlife Refuge. We are just a few miles from the National Bison Range and other vast expanses of public lands and tribal lands (accessible with purchase of a permit). An easy half hour drive brings you to beautiful Flathead Lake, and in 1.5 hours you can reach Glacier National Park. In every direction you'll find hiking or walking on mountain trails, swimming, mountain biking, sailing, kayaking or canoeing, wildlife viewing, and a thousand other kinds of fun and relaxation!

The Mission Mountains Vacation Rental is fully and tastefully furnished, with two bedrooms (3 beds), full bath, full kitchen, living room / dining area, your own private second-floor deck, washer & dryer, TV with DVD player, radio, and WiFi. Stunning views of Mission Mountains, live creek with 40 private acres, great access to outdoor recreation, adjacent to Ninepipes National Wildlife Refuge, short drives to National Bison Range & Flathead Lake.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1991

              About the owner: The owners are professionals in the area: a historian working for a local government, and a licensed acupunturist.

              Why the Owner Chose Charlo:
              The most beautiful place in the world!

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              This is truly a place of great beauty, and also a place of rich and diverse human cultures and history. Ecologically, this is one of the most vibrant areas remaining in the lower 48 states. Virtually every plant and animal that was here when non-Indians first arrived over 200 years ago is still here (including such now-imperiled species as grizzly bears, gray wolves, trumpeter swans, and bull trout). With the Ninepipes National Wildlife Refuge and Owl Research Institute literally next door, and the National Bison Range just a short jaunt down the road, this is a place of great wild abundance. Culturally, this is the homeland of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, and a visit offers guests a chance to learn about their rich and vital cultures, and the complex history that is still present all around us here.
