About the Property
2 Bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen), plus queen size futon, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Looking for a waterfront cabin in the woods with modern amenities located just minutes to a town and major National Park? You've found it at this home on Duck Lake, just 8 miles north of Columbia Falls & minutes to the West Glacier and Camas Creek entrances of Glacier National Park.
Situated on an acre overlooking Duck Lake (a small, shallow lake on the *west* side of Glacier Park) and Forest Service land, the Duck Lake Vacation Rental by Glacier National Park has everything you need to get away from it all yet stay connected to civilization. This modern cabin the woods, built in 2002, has WiFi, washer/dryer, microwave, home theater system, iPod dock, gas grill & satellite TV, yet feels far and away from your busy, everyday world.
Enjoy quiet evenings by a crackling fire in the chiminea on the deck watching ducks, osprey, eagles & blue herons as the sun sets over the lake. Spend the rainy evening indoors with the warmth of the propane stove watching TV or DVDs & eating popcorn.
Drive the back roads to Glacier Park, seeing beautiful forest & river views typical Glacier Park visitors never see!
Suitability: Ideal for one or two couples, this home sleeps 2-4 quite comfortably and can accommodate up to 6 people utilizing the queen sized futon located in the ''office'' area.

About the owner: We've loved the Mountain West since we were introduced to it in the early 1980's and finally moved into the Rocky Mountain Region in 1995. We love to spend time in the National Parks located in the Western US and just generally explore this fabulous area of the country. When we aren't dreaming of being independently wealthy, we are working hard at our jobs to earn 'play' money so we can continue exploring the Western US and beyond.
Why the Owner Chose Columbia Falls, MT, USA:
We bought our home near Glacier National Park because it was the quintessential 'cabin in the woods' on a small lake, yet close enough to civilization to give us all the comforts of life we have become accustomed to. The house's proximity to Glacier National Park, Kalispell, Whitefish and Bigfork (Flathead Lake) is fabulous! It's essentially 20 minutes away from everything.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have thoroughly enjoyed watching the wildlife from our deck overlooking Duck Lake (moose, bear, beaver, heron, eagles, osprey and, of course, ducks) including the little squirrels and chipmunks around the house, and love the wonderful 'back road' access to Glacier National Park. The house is centrally located to virtually anything one would want to do while visiting the area -- Glacier Park, Flathead Lake, Polebridge, Whitefish & more. Secluded, yet still quite close to everything. Even Glacier International Airport is only about a 20 minute drive from the house!
