We decided to visit Glacier National Park for our anniversary 2 weeks before leaving. Everything in the park was booked when I initially checked so I emailed several owners on VRBO. Later after booking then cancelling due to the reviews on Tripadvisor a room at Many Glacier , we chose to stay at Mountain Cleft Retreat. We are so glad we did! The property has a larger house that could handle a couple families, a smaller 2 br chalet and an overflow cabin. We stayed in the chalet. It was quiet, clean, and had all the conveniences we would have lacked at the lodges in the park like a TV (the Olympics were on!!), coffee pot, full kitchen, 3 balconies/decks, grill etc. The beds were comfy and the chalet had charm. It took us less than 10 minutes to get to the west entrance of GNP on beautiful backcountry roads through a national forest. The owners were accommodating and unintrusive. I think this is a newer place so stay here before everyone else!
