Overview

West Glacier Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage With 2 Bedrooms + 2 Full Baths, With Mountain Views

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.

About Clyde Morgan

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 Clyde Morgan 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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Unexpected comfort in wild setting

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Alpine Cottage...it's exquisitely decorated, completely stocked with whatever we needed and so comfortable. We have twin three year old girls and they loved staying in the loft where there was a secret nook that was their very own. It was quiet and close to so much. It would be a perfect place for a family or for a romantic get away. Loved our time. We will be back!!!

Do NOT rent the cottage without renting the alpine house. We only had to tolerate other renters for one night and one morning which was too long. We could hear everything and they were loud and obnoxious.
This cottage is just as depicted. All of the amenities necessary with the exception of NO air conditioning and NO ceiling fans. The housekeeper lent us her personal fan and stated she could not obtain anymore. If we were closer to a store, we would have purchased fans for each room. Ventilation came from opening all windows. Our kids slept upstairs and could not have lights on because of the bugs.
The cottage was tidy but not particularly clean. There was mold in the master bath, spider webs hanging from the ceilings, toilet was dirty at the bottom and bugs flying around in the house.
The cottage served our purpose (as a base for exploring Glacier National Park) but I would rank this rental as really fancy camping. This cottage may be lovely in the winter but we came in July.

Owner's Response: We have taken steps to reduce sound transfer between units and will be taking additional steps to dampen any sound transference. It does get warm sometimes in our part of Montana, but the nights cool down making it great for sleeping. We have purchased additional fans for those desiring them. We have very high housekeeping standards. If you notice any issue, please contact our housekeeper or us, and it will be resolved.

Exceptional Vacation - Cozy, Serene, Great Sunrise Views!

  • 5 of 5
When the hotel our group booked was sold out, I began looking for alternate lodging and was excited to find Mountain Cleft Retreat. The price was economical, the photos looked great, the location seemed convenient to Glacier National Park, and the owners were wonderful to work with. The driving directions were easy to follow and accurate, and even though it felt like I might wind up in Canada, I arrived safe and sound at the retreat. The landscaping was beautiful, and the scent of lavender filled the air as soon as I opened my car door. I was downright giddy walking up the porch and exploring the house - everything was cozy and quaint, perfectly comfortable, and exceptionally clean. The photos I had seen online were entirely consistent with the actual house. The bedding was comfortable, and the bathrooms were well-lit and modern. The kitchen could have used a few more odds and ends, but just about everything we needed was there, including a nice new dishwasher and a 4-slot toaster. Each morning I enjoyed a cup of tea on that incredible deck while watching the sun rise over the mountains, and each evening that same deck was a lovely place to enjoy the peace and quiet of dusk. It took me about 15 minutes to get to the park entrance and about 15 mins to get to Columbia Falls (in the other direction). Alpine Cottage is a find, and I was so pleased with the accommodations that I am making plans to return with my family next year. I highly recommend Mountain Cleft Retreat to anyone visiting the Glacier National Park Area, and if you like to watch the sunrise, I recommend Alpine Cottage. It definitely has the best early-morning views.

Listing description and photos showed well the property
Property very well maintained and clean
Owners very helpful in providing maps to get to the place which was not easy. I would recommend to add coordinates to the address, for GPS.
Only recommendation would be to ask the administrator to enhance coordination with the visitors and maintenance crew
I would definitely recomend the place

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.
