West Glacier chalet description

The Glacier Chalet looks like something out of a charming storybook. (For larger groups, also check our other units located on the same property—Alpine House: Listing 134160, and Alpine Cottage: Listing 451633). The 1000 square foot, wood sided, red roofed, two story chalet with white painted balconies is a dream come true. Located at the edge of the woods, the quiet here is soothing and tranquil. Two cozy upstairs bedrooms, one with two twin beds, and the other with one queen bed, have down comforters. Each room is in European cottage decor and has its own private balcony with views of the mountains and woods and a place to sit and relax. A full bathroom is shared between the two bedrooms.

The downstairs has a full kitchen, dining room, living room with full sofa bed couch, reading chairs and a gas fireplace, a bathroom, entry room, and front porch. The living room opens out onto a large balcony deck with deck chairs and barbecue grill. The deck overlooks the meadow below and the mountains above.

                  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 Chalet:
                  When you stay in the Glacier Chalet you are nestled in the woods where birds sing. Yet, you have the comforts and conveniences of home. Each bedroom has a walkout balcony from which you can view the surrounding natural beauty. If you're looking for romantic setting, the queen bedroom with its balcony view of the mountain meadow is very enchanting.
