"This is a basic cabin with the essentials and great for groups and families. It had everything we needed. It's larger than it looks in the photos. It's hard to find a reasonably priced stay in this area, close to east glacier. The cabin and location is great for those who don't want to deal with the crowds and paper thin walls at the lodges in the park. It's a peaceful location with easy access to Many Glacier and St Mary's. Would definitely stay here again."

Best Views! Most Relaxing Location! Wonderful Hostess!
"We just returned from a 2-week road trip across the US. We stayed 2 nights at Elk Willows, and everyone in our party agreed it was one of the highlights of the trip. The pictures just do not even do the place justice. The sunrise and sunset views were spectacular. The silence there was wonderful. Our 10-year-old daughter had the best time there simply playing outside with the neighborhood friendly dogs and the ranch's alpacas. She now wants to move to Montana. :)
The lodge was so very clean and comfortable. Our family of 3 was traveling with my parents. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Our only regret was that we didn't book it for longer. I would love to sit on the front porch and just watch the endless views for several days.
Glacier National Park is a simple, short drive away as is the Canadian part of the park in Waterton. The border crossing was not crowded and was easy and quick. We found the east side of Glacier nicer and more picturesque than the west side. We saw lots of bears while in and around the park. We saw elk at sunrise on the ranch. Janice was so helpful and nice. She supplied us with bear spray and told us how to use it. :) She also cleaned daily and brought us some delicious homemade caramels! She makes you feel like you've known her for ages. I had to resist the urge to hug her goodbye after just 2 days! If you want solitude and beautiful views, book Elk Willows. We loved it and hope to visit again someday."

"My wife, Jeanne and I have been visiting GNP for more than 10 years now. In 2012, while searching David's website (davidwalburn.com) for new music, I found the Stonehouse. For two folks who love the park and enjoy having a nice place to relax after a long day of hiking, this looked like a great option. To say the least, we weren't disappointed. It's everything you see in the pictures and the video. It's roomy, comfortable, furnished nicely and well built. The views of the mountains from the main picture window are stunning. On top of everything being set up perfectly, David checked on us to make sure we made it in OK and to see if we needed anything. I can tell you from experience, there is no better place to stay near Many Glacier and St. Mary's than the Stonehouse. On top of it being a great vacation home, David really cares that your stay is memorable. That brings us to 2014/2015. After several years of "attempting" to play David's music with my "band" (Dan & Steve) and showing them my GNP vacation pictures, they became intrigued by the thought of us going on a fishing trip to MT. We finally decided to try a winter "ice fishing & picking" trip. I called up David and he was glad to assist. He even agreed to play music with us! You can imagine my excitement when I told my guitar pals that "David Walburn", was actually going to hang out and "jam" with us. The day we arrived, David was at the Stonehouse waiting and making sure everything was set up just right. The ice fishing was fantastic! The evenings playing music and getting to know David were even better. He even provided us with a couple of dinners of ribs and trout. I knew David was a great singer, songwriter and guitar player, but I had no idea what a great cook he was. "Dan doesn't even like fish, but he couldn't get enough of the trout David prepared." To top off our trip, David video'd the entire experience. We've gotten nothing but compliments on how professionally the video is put together. I feel very blessed for having had the pleasure of vacationing in GNP for several years. Staying at the Stonehouse and becoming friends with David has made it that much more enjoyable. He's a straight forward, down-to-earth, gracious host, who truly loves and appreciates the experience of living in the Rocky Mountains. It comes through in his music and in the way he treats his guests. David, thank you for helping make our trips to Glacier a little more special each time. Mike"

"My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home on Duck lake. Everything was wonderful. We had a great experience staying here. Loved all the pictures, quilts, comfy bed etc. There is a view of the lake from one side of the house and a view of the mountains from the other side of the house. The beds were very comfortable and we slept very well. September 9th & 10th we were snowed in but made the most of our time by reading, watching a movie etc. Actually, it didn't just snow on Wednesday it was a blizzard that blew hard for 24 hours straight. But, we were nice and comfy in the house. The day we left the sky and the roads cleared and the mountains were majestic with all the new snow on them. The horses that roam freely are a "hoot" but be careful driving in and out. We had a horse jump a fence, right in front of our car, and we almost hit it. "Roy" was only there the first day but he was fun to have around. Enjoyed seeing the white pelican. Only saw it twice while we were there but it was beautiful. The sunsets were amazing!!! All in all some wonderful memories!!! Irene, thanks so much for the delicious fresh fruit. That was really appreciated. Close to Many Glacier for some great hiking. Don't forget to stop at FisherCap lake to see the moose. Fun to see in the wild!"
