Babb house description

Ideal vacation lodging: a beautiful ranch setting, apart from the traditional tourist scene, in comfortable, relaxed surroundings. Elk Willows Lodge is one of 4 unique accommodations we offer. All are in a private setting for guests looking for lodging with a personal touch. If your vacation is centered around exploring this unique area, you are within minutes of area activities and attractions. The East Entrance to Glacier Park is 15 minutes away, Many Glacier Valley is 20 minutes, Two Medicine Valley is an hour's scenic drive as is Waterton National Park in Canada. The Ranch is an ideal place to return to after a day of activity; to kick back, relax and plan your next day's adventure. If you prefer time to read, write, photograph or other more solitary pursuits, you will enjoy the space, privacy and inspiring natural ambience. All our vacation rentals offer the serenity, privacy and views that Paul Ranch Montana is famous for.

Centrally located for a variety of destinations and pursuits, this premium vacation home is spacious, comfortable, and well-maintained. Each of our residences is personally and individually decorated so you will be in a comfortable home. The spacious kitchen and breakfast bar are perfect for casual meals and the separate dining area offers views of Glacier Park mountains. The living room includes a library and the separate sitting room includes a gas fireplace. The master suite includes a large bathroom with double sinks, garden tub, and oversized shower with seating. The smaller bathroom has a tub/shower combo and single sink. The on site washer/dryer provides an extra convenience. Daily service to your accommodations allows you to concentrate on your vacation, not housekeeping.

A large deck off the front door offers mountain views of Glacier Park that are beyond belief and is a perfect place to dine, to start your day with morning coffee or to end your evening relaxing and viewing wildlife that inhabit the property. A large open field invites an evening stroll; equipment is on hand for outdoor games and activities. This is a plus for families traveling with children.

RANCH MONTANA PAUL LLC proudly announces it has been accepted as a Silver level GreenLeader into the new GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the U.S.

WILD HEART REFUGE, comprised of 155 acres, has been set aside on the Ranch as a wildlife refuge. The commitment of Paul Ranch Montana is to leave acreage undisturbed to support indigenous wildlife that live on, give birth on and migrate across the land.

SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR OTHER LODGING CHOICES which include our newest addition 3 bedroom/2 bath vacation rental (Meadowlark Meadows Guest House), our economical 2 bedroom/1 bath vacation rental (Wagon Wheel Guest House) and our no-frills historic bunkhouse (Chaps & Spurs Bunkhouse).
