Property description

The 1200 foot Alpine Cottage can accommodate up to six persons and is reminiscent of a Swedish country house. (For larger groups, also check our other units located on the same property—Alpine House: Listing 134160, and Glacier Chalet: Listing 451634). 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.

Mountain Cleft Retreat is surrounded by national forest. Wildlife is abundant, especially in the Spring. Two forks of the Flathead River merge nearby where you can find a locally favorite fishing spot. Glacier National Park property is about 3/4 of a mile away as the crow flies. The West Entrance to the park is just 8 miles by road.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Melissa and I (Clyde) take pleasure in providing a wilderness retreat where people can unwind, enjoy nature, and come closer together. The Alpine Cottage is a quality place where this can happen.

Why the Owner Chose West Glacier:
Melissa lived in this area for about 20 years and loves the mountain wilderness. Her favorite spot is Lake McDonald, by Apgar Village, a short drive from the retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The floor to ceiling windows of the Alpine Cottage face toward a meadow just on the other side of the lawn. Moose sometimes graze in the meadow. The large deck with BBQ is great for a gathering with family or friends.
