Beautiful property; great location
We rented the property for a summer vacation with family. We had 8 adults and 4 kids of various ages, plus one infant. It's a lot of people in the kitchen at once, but otherwise, plenty of space/beds. It's a great house with a perfect location and beautiful surrounding property. Everyone loved the private grounds with our own lake and dock. The back deck was awesome too. The rental has everything you would need in the kitchen. Plenty of things to do for the kids. We loved it. I'd recommend this place to friends and other family wanting to visit Montana.

Mystic Mountain Montana is a great place to spend a week exploring all the activities available in Glacier NP and the Flathead Valley. Mystic Mountain has beautiful views from its huge deck, private lakes for canoeing and fishing, and a fire pit for family members to gather around in the evening. The house was clean and comfortable, with enough room for our family of 8 to enjoy! Kalli was very helpful with the registration and check-in procedures.

Mystic Mountain is a wonderful vacation destination with close proximity to Glacier National Park. We enjoyed an action back week full of hiking, white water rafting, and just generally enjoying the beautiful Montana countryside. The house is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your home away from home for a week. We have rented from Kalli in Costa Rica as well and know that her attention to detail is unmatched. I would highly recommend Mystic Mountain!! — Jessica Brock, 29 Jul 2019
We recently enjoyed a week at Mystic Mountain Retreat with our close family friends. It is truly a stunning property and the level of attention in the decor and amenities is unparalleled. We had two families of four and had plenty of space to unwind and relax. Our children loved the canoes and fished on the lake until sundown. We also enjoyed watching the osprey and bald head eagle from the back porch - beautiful. There was no shortage of guide books and tips for exploring the area at the house. We went to Glacier several times, but also hiked in Jewel Basin, which ended up being everyone’s favorite hike of the trip. We couldn’t recommend Bigfork and Mystic Mountain Retreat more - beautiful home and area of the country! — Amanda Shelton, 28 Jul 2019
Amazing views and a beautiful home!
We were a family of 9 staying at Mystic Mountain and the home was a perfect size. There were so many activities on site we certainly did not need to leave the property, but we did. The home provided for all of our kitchen and bathroom needs and there was easy access to grocery shopping. We were able to fish and swim on the property as well as enjoy the relaxing views on the deck. The rec room and the pool table provided hours of joy as did the outside fire pit. Highly recommend staying at Mystic Mountain, there was so much to do and the area provided for fun activities like going to Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake fishing, Whitewater rafting, water parks, zip lining, and the list goes on. Fun will be had by all if you plan a Montana vacation!

Heaven on earth!
Mystic Mountain is perfect in every way! The Thomas/Keller family from Illinois can not thank you enough for sharing your piece of paradise. Until next time.

Our family of twelve thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at this beautiful home. It is a stunning and peaceful property, with much to do for all ages. The older kids enjoyed the lake and canoes, pool table and fire pit, to name a few things. The younger ones enjoyed the abundance of toys, books, and games. The adults loved it all, including the gorgeous views. Kalli has gone out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and extremely comfortable. We would definitely consider renting again, and would highly recommend this wonderful property to others. Thank you, Kalli , for a fantastic week at Mystic Mountain!

The large, beautiful house overlooks private lakes for canoeing, fishing, swimming. Everything is turnkey. There are so many activities for all ages...from books, games, toys, dvds, billiards, etc. The most enjoyable times were when we discovered the natural beauty of the area. It is relatively close to Glacier Nat'l Park (45 mins and you're in the park, which is considered close). Nearby is Bigfork, MT, and Flathead Lake which is a very large lake for all kinds of water sports including sailing. We had a full house with ages 3 months to 81 years and it worked perfectly for us. Kids piled into a couple rooms, and the adults had plenty of space far from the kids (if desired)! Any questions were addressed quickly by the owner (or one of the on-call managers). Everyone was super friendly.

Perfect Family Getaway!
Our family absolutely loved this property and will certainly return. The property was well appointed and had everything we needed. The 15 acres offered plenty of opportunities to explore: Sunrises on the back patio, sunsets on the front lawn, fishing at the dock, and canoe rides on the lake. We were overwhelmed with the number of things there were to do on the property. The property was located a quick 10 minutes from Bigfork, but several times we found ourselves spending the entire day on property. The property manager was very quick to respond and helped us with all of our needs. It was nice to have such a responsive and helpful resource during our adventure in Montana. We can't wait for our next visit!

Mystic Mountain was the perfect place to spend a week with our family while they were visiting for our small wedding in Glacier. Our family of 8 was comfortable during our stay, and everyone was complimentary of the home and grounds. Every morning while drinking coffee we enjoyed watching deer and other wildlife from the deck. The house is in a perfect location to venture into Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, and the Jewel Basin. It is easy to spend an entire day on the deck relaxing and enjoying the beautiful mountain views. Our family really loved their stay, and we plan to book at Mystic Mountain in the future. — Kristen Sims Barbaree, 07 Oct 2017
What a fabulous home in which to share our summer vacation with siblings, children, and grandchildren. The amenities in the home were top-notch. And, the osprey family kept us thoroughly entranced. The television was NOT turned on during the entire week!! The location was perfect for experiencing the Flathead Valley, the Swan Mountains, Swan Lake, Whitefish & Kalispell, and Glacier National Park. — M. Barnhart, 24 Jul 2017

An AMAZING lake view home in beautiful Montana. Our time in Montana was very well spent in this beautiful home. The decorations and attention to detail as soon as you walk in are perfect. The home comes stocked with all necessary items and the kitchen exceeded expectations for a group that likes to cook! We spent our days enjoying the nearby scenery and the lake view. Our nights were often spent by the campfire pit. We have nothing but great things to say about working with Kalli and staying at her amazing property!

What a fabulous spot!! The home is absolutely beautiful with a very relaxing atmosphere. The accommodations throughout were beyond most VRBO's specifications. The kitchen was so well equipped that it was hard to find missing items. We loved everything about your wonderful home and the surroundings. However the access to the lake is a bit challenging. Montana is a beautiful state. Our first visit and we will return. — Molly Merser, 01 Aug 2016
We had a great time, and it is a fabulous property.  Everything was more than comfortable, it was exceptional.  Thank you for all the care that you take in the place.  It is certainly special. The house was an integral part of our special family celebration, and it exceeded expectations in every way. — Steve Taylor, 23 Jul 2016
Thank you, we had a wonderful time at your house! Your retreat is a stunning place to refresh your soul!  I loved it and highly recommend it to others.

We all really enjoyed Mystic Mountain Retreat. It is a beautiful and relaxing place. We were all impressed by the decor, the comfort of your home, the entertainment in side the home and outside with the beautiful surroundings and we were thankful for the mounds of information you have available. It was a wonderful getaway and we plan on making another visit in the future. Take care, Michela — Michela E, 03 Oct 2015
Be it the natural beauty, nesting osprey, campfire smores, or completely thought out layout of the wonderful home - Mystic Mountain afforded our group a GREAT vacation! — Jason Drzewiecki, 27 Jul 2015
What an amazing get-away! The peace, the snow, the privacy, all of it was just the right place for us to come together over the winter holiday. We loved it and we will be back! Can not say enough good things about Mystic Mountain. What a gem...what a find.

What a wonderful get-away with our family for the Canadian Thanksgiving (Oct.). Beautiful weather allowed us to enjoy all the amenities: hiking, fishing, canoeing, and singing around the campfire. We can't wait to come back again.

We enjoyed 2 weeks at this delightful Mystic Mountain Retreat. Enjoyed the lake the canoe, fishing, loads of hiking and wild life sitings. The home is an ideal base camp for touring the surrounding areas of Bigfork, Flathead Lake, Jewel Basin, Glacier Park and Whitefish. We would love to return as this venue would be tough to top.
— J. Morris, 09 Aug 2014
This property is amazing! Luxury in the home and relaxation and peace all around. If you are looking for a somewhat secluded property that has a lot to do right on the property - this is it. The views are amazing, the grounds are perfect. My family (from various states) came together at Mystic Mountain for 10 wonderful days in July. The kids would fish on the lake until dark at 10 p.m. This house has everything you need...games, toys, water toys, fishing rods, canoe, space outside, campfire ring. I could go on and on. You will want to explore the area, but in the same breath...stay right here at the property! — Jen K, 18 Jul 2014

A lovely second stay here! Everything was still as perfect as our first stay. We love Montana and Mystic Mountain.

Our family from toddlers to retires enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Close to town but peaceful surroundings and easy to get to various tourist sites. The home has everything available that one could need for all ages. Walks in the area is so peaceful. The pictures one sees on the website is everything you see plus! — Jean H, 28 Sep 2013
We had a fantastic time at the property and were impressed with the quality and features of the home. It was an excellent experience. I highly recommend this rental. Thanks again.

We had a phenomenal stay at this property! Big enough for 2 large families. The lake, kayaking, and fishing kept us very busy & happy. Hard to leave the property! Great location to explore Glacier, Bigfork, Whitefish, and beautiful Flathead Lake. Lots of privacy. House is spotless, comfortable and well-equipped. Highly recommend this beautiful home.

— Christine M., 26 Jun 2013

This is a beautiful home. Everything is of very high quality and comfortable. The location is great with easy access to Glacier, Whitefish, Big Fork and Kallispell. This home easily accommodates a large number of guests. The deck is gorgeous and overlooks a small lake.

Just returned from our fabulous week at your awesome, beautiful house. We had a great time with the family from Wisconsin and Colorado. We fell in love with the area and your meticulous home with all its beautiful furnishings and detail. We could have easily stayed another week. What a wonderful time and great memories for our family.
— Anne, Colorado, 03 Sep 2012

We had such a good time at your beautiful home. Kalli, your home is beautiful and was not missing anything to make our stay magical. The games and toys were a big hit also with my grandkids. Eleanor (6yrs) wanted us all to live there together forever! This says it all.

— Diane B, 07 Aug 2012
Spectacular, well maintained home. We so enjoyed your spectacular home. It's just lovely and so well maintained. What a beautiful job you have done here. We had a fabulous week with our children with spectacular surroundings and magnificent views. We enjoyed each quiet, peaceful moment.

What a wonderful experience our family shared at your beautiful, spotless home. Beautiful area with lots of activities to do. l enjoyed sitting out on the deck watching the sunset. Great location, with easy access to Bigfork and Flathead Lake. We were so fortunate to have stayed here. One week wasn't enough!!
— Anne, California, 14 Jul 2012

This house rocks! This was our 3rd time to Bigfork. So much to do and this house is the best. Forget about being on Flathead Lake, these lakes and ponds are great fun for the family and views 24/7. This home has it all even down to the toys for kids to play with. What a blast! We hope to be back soon.
— Smith Family, AZ, 20 Jun 2012

Beauty meets warmth and comfort. What a beautiful setting for our Fall Staff Retreat! We could feel the love and deliberate intention in every detail. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, and the views spectacular! Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven with us all. We can not wait to return to Mystic Mountain.

Thank you for a beautiful experience in a spectacular place for our Fall Staff Retreat.
The love here is palpable in the atmosphere down to the much appreciated beautiful details.
— Rev. Christina T, San Diego, 14 Oct 2011

This vacation home far surpassed my expectations! Not only was it extremely spacious (easily accommodated 8 adults/1 child with room to spare), but it was absolutely stunning. From the beautifully decorated interior to the private deck overlooking a pristine lake. We really enjoyed having the small lakes and canoe located only steps from house. We hope to be back someday in the future!
— Elizabeth, Honolulu, HI, 06 Aug 2011

We, as three families, had a wonderful vacation week at your Mystic Mountain home! Your home and property are quite beautiful. It was perfect for our group! The decor and house wares were great, the canoe was fun, and the week was a great time for all. Thank you for being a great host!
— Three families (Oregon), 09 Jul 2011

This was the best house ever! The stay was most wonderful, the house was great and the surroundings were wonderful. Our kids caught fish everyday and saw lot of animals. This is really a once in a life time house to rent. All the amenities were great and just like the profile said it was their and well maintained.

Peace and quiet at it's best. This home is amazing! Everything listed and pictured is the real thing. No detail forgotten even down to spices, foil, and laundry detergent. We so enjoyed the peace and quiet. Thank you Kalli for sharing Mystic Mt.

Thanks so much for the beautiful accommodations! The mountains and lakes are so gorgeous. The people in Montana are so relaxed and friendly. It's no wonder, as Mystic Mountain Retreat is a fabulously well appointed home with great views and tranquility. The lake is much warmer than we anticipated!
— Three families from, Hanogate, England & Frederick, MD, , 25 Jul 2010

Great week in Montana at Mystic Mountain! Two families annual vacation was enhanced by a stay at this wonderful home. We enjoyed the lake, ping pong, shoot the moon, BBQ's on the deck and rarely turning on the TV! What an amazing accomplishment for 7 teenagers.
