  • Two day mastermind session

Because this retreat is offered during the golden days of a Montana summer, we are also excited to offer you the opportunity for lots of outdoor fun, such as bicycling and driving the spectacular Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Boating on beautiful Lake McDonald (just a short walk from Glacier Bear!), ziplining adventures down the mountain at Whitefish Mountain Resort, treetop walk atop Whitefish Mountain, whitewater rafting, flyfishing, and horseback riding are also available at an additional expense.

Location: Glacier Bear Retreat

Glacier Bear Retreat is a brand new storybook cottage located INSIDE the boundaries of Glacier National Park in beautiful West Glacier, Montana. Glacier Bear is located on almost an acre of private land with Fish Creek and Apgar Creek flowing through the property, creating a quiet, private and peaceful haven. A short walk brings you to the shores of beautiful Lake MacDonald.

Aptly named “Retreat”, Glacier Bear is perfect for nature-loving individuals looking for a quiet place to reconnect with the nature in spectacular Glacier National Park. For more photos of Glacier Bear, please check out
