About the Property
Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 10), 2 kitchens
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 and enjoy reading a good book with your favorite beverage.
The StoneHouse has two levels both with separate entrances and parking. (The house is never rented to two separate parties at the same time except upon request. Even if its just a party of two you get entire house) The upper level has two bedrooms, full bath, kitchen and living area. One of the upstairs bedrooms has an additional built-in bunk bed for 2 more single sleepers
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 lower level has one bedroom, full bath, galley kitchen and living area which includes two bunks for extra guests.
The StoneHouse is one of the nicest vacation rental properties around Duck Lake.
The StoneHouse is uniquely located on a beautiful scenic ridge with outstanding views, plenty of privacy and lake frontage.
If you are looking for a unique Montana vacation rental with access to real Montana adventures, look no further than the StoneHouse at Duck Lake.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: David Walburn - Montana Singer•Songwriter, avid outdoor enthusiast, fly fisherman, hunter, hiker, skier, and homesteader. From 1999 to 2014, 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 24 years and it's here that I feel most at home. Four of those summers were spent working nights performing and the days building the Stonehouse. 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, MT, USA:
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?
