Babb house description

The StoneHouse at Duck Lake is a unique property built by Montana songwriter, David Walburn, as an exclusive retreat for outdoor enthusiasts and the eco-minded traveler. It is a private residence that is nestled between Montana's finest panoramic views of Glacier National Park, Chief Mountain, (sacred among the Blackfeet Tribe, standing alone at an impressive 9,080'in elevation) across to the open vistas of the Cut Bank Plains.

The wildlife is over the top! Loons, elk, moose, bear, grebe, sage grouse, hawks, badgers, American pelican, owls, foxes, wolves.... well, you get the idea.

The StoneHouse was designed and built using green building materials to enhance its durability and energy efficiency against the wild eastern Montana climate. After a day of outdoor adventure, come inside to the warmth of a wood stove with an artistic hearth taking center stage.

The StoneHouse has two bedrooms each equipped with Queen-Size beds. One bedroom has an additional built in bunk bed for 2 more single sleepers ( kids or adults! ). There is a full sized bathroom with soaker tub and shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new appliances; refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and kitchen range. We have all the kitchen amenities to create a wonderful meal for family and friends.

The owner, David Walburn, lives on property June - Sept in a separate private residence at the lodge. David is a seasoned performer at the Many Glacier Hotel. All guests of the StoneHouse will receive complimentary tickets to one of David's nightly shows. He is also an excellent resource for information on Glacier National Park and the surrounding area. He is happy to share his knowledge of Montana, fishing, hunting, songwriting, bow building, or anything else he can share to make your stay here more enjoyable.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: David Walburn - Montana Singer•Songwriter, avid outdoor enthusiast, fly fisherman, hunter, hiker, skier, and homesteader. During the summer, I work at The historic Many Glacier Hotel as the resident musician, performing acoustic concerts for Glacier Park guests. I have lived in Montana for over 20 years and it's here that I feel most at home. I have built The StoneHouse at Duck Lake over the past 4 years with a few dedicated friends. It has been my mission to build something unique that people will enjoy, appreciate and, hopefully, wholly experience this amazing landscape with its vast and beautiful wilderness. This is definitely not your cookie cutter vacation rental. It is meant for those who have an adventurous spirit and a love of the American west.

              Why the Owner Chose Babb:
              We have been summer campers on Montana's east side for over 10 years and have fallen in love with its rugged beauty and wild landscape. We created a space - a travelers rest - that blends with this landscape. After I finished, I realized that this space should be shared by those adventure travelers who want a different lodging experience other than the usual motel/hotel. It is meant for those who want to explore off the main highway, can unplug from modern life for awhile and appreciate the native country and culture of Montana.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our family enjoys waking up at The StoneHouse wondering what the day's adventure will bring. We have caught mammoth rainbows on a fly rod, rode the float tube on endless quests searching for the perfect swimming hole, took the spotting scope for bird watching, bear spotting, and star gazing. We have gone on endless hikes into Glacier, had some banner kite flying days. In the winter we have trekked in snow shoes, sledded across the Duck's Head, skijored, ice fished, wrote kids songs, talked with owls and star gazed for hours, even experiencing the Northern Lights on occasion. What will your adventure be?
