About the Property

3 bedroom 3 full baths, with sauna and unobstructed lake and mt. views

Recently constructed home right on the shores of Duck Lake (known for their record size trout). With an unbelievable view across the lake at Chief Mt. and Glacier Park.

After years of traveling to Glacier Park to enjoy the scenery, fly fish for monster trout, hike to small mountain lakes and waterfalls, and enjoy one of the most beautiful areas in our nation, we were able to purchase property on the far east end of Duck Lake. Located just a few miles from Many Glacier, the entrance to Glacier Park and 'going to the sun road' ( a must drive while here). We started construction of our cabin with a loft in 2008 and just completed some finishing touches. Every Year we try to improve both the home and amenities offered and often these improvements are at suggestions of the guests.

After staying in hotels, motels and friends homes, or often not being able to find a place to stay we wanted to share this beautiful area with like minded travelers by opening up our home for vacation rentals.

We love this area, and have yet to explore all that it has to offer as there is so much history to learn and things to see and do for the outdoor enthusiast.
We have included photos of the house, Which will give you a good idea of what we offer, that will make it comfortable for the traveler.

This area is still wild and woolly, not unusual to see Grizzly Bears, Moose, Buffalo, Big Horn sheep, Mountain goats, fox, and many other wild species that reside in and around the park. We love the natural aspects of this area and remind travelers to leave a small footprint while visiting to keep it pristine.
Montana is open range country, You will brake for a heard of cattle or free ranging horses before You will for a stop light. We embrace the rural feel and slower life style offered with gravel roads and a pot-hole or two.

Our home is a compact 2 full floors with loft. The loft being the master bedroom with Cal. King size log bed, lodge pole armoir and closets for storage. Full bathroom, vaulted blue pine ceilings overlooking the living room and dining room.
Main floor has a full kitchen with electric stove, microwave, blender, refrigerator with Ice maker, tile and granite counter tops, raised bar that will allow guests to be a part of the kitchen without getting in the way of the chef. Kitchen opens to dining room that will seat 8, living room off to the side with couch and easy chair to read books relax and enjoy the river rock fireplace with wood burning stove. Or walk out the French doors to the Large wrap around covered deck and enjoy the view of the lake with a cup of coffee or cocktail.
Down the stairs to the daylight basement with a large cabinet area and small library with a variety of books if You forgot one. Stackable washer and dryer located in the 3rd full bath. Bedroom has 2 double(Queen) log style beds with a trundle that can be rolled out for another single bed. An additional futon acts as a couch downstairs and can be used as an additional bed for guests that do not want to double up in one of the other beds.
After a hike or long day of fishing enjoy a 2-3 person infrared sauna to warm up, detoxify and relax in. A large coffee table that acts as a great place to put together a puzzle and French doors that open out to the lake.

A few short steps and You are lakeside, We have rafts and float tubes along with life jackets for the little ones. The lake deepens gradually in front of the house so no worries about falling in or deep drop offs. Bring booties or wading sneakers as this area is ancient Glacier run off so river style rocks and gravel abound.

Recently installed a big fire pit where you can roast marsh mellows, cook the hot dogs or just sit around the fire and enjoy the view. Picnic table and fire sticks are provided. We supply some wood but is hard to know how much each guest may use.

If you are a fly fisherman bring Your pole and waders, there is good fishing straight off the beach, once You wade out to where you can see deeper water. More than a few fish, Browns and Rainbow, have been caught and released here. We'll keep one for dinner as these trout consume the natural fresh water scuds(shrimp) which turns their meat a bright orange or red just like a Salmon.
For 2016 we purchased a paddle/peddle boat that can seat 4 persons, and cn be used by everyone for some exercise and getting out on the lake.
We supply a water dispenser with both Hot and cold water for a quick quench or cup of tea.
You can sleep 8 -9 comfortably.
There is a out door gas barbeque available and many other stored things for use, snoop around a bit if in need of something as we probably have it there somewhere.
We hope You enjoy your stay and our home as a great base camp for adventure in Glacier Park!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: The owners Joel and Cindy are originally from the Olympic Peninsula, in Washington State. We are used to the mountains and beautiful outdoors of our home state, But we are awed by the majestic wildness and topography this area has to offer, We feel fortunate to be able to come and enjoy the area with its distinct 4 seasons and sometimes crazy weather that can accommodate the region. We've made great friends in the area and community and look forward to getting caught up with them each time we come. We are blessed to be able to visit and enjoy the great Blackfeet Nation and Glacier National Park. We hope You will feel the same way.

Why Babb, MT, USA:
Our Home is very close to the entrance to Many Glacier which offers some of the best hikes and wild life viewing in Glacier Park. The East side is a little bit more remote and not part of a large city, but offers the outdoor enthusiast a perfect retreat to get away and get outside in the beautiful area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We offer a well stocked, comfortable home where You can spread out, go swimming or fishing right in front of the house all the while enjoying the amazing views of Glacier park as a back drop. We know that most travelers will be coming from great distances to spend some time in one of the most beautiful areas of our nation, We want our home to add to the beauty of the area and help to make lasting memories with family and friends. We try to offer a lot more than the typical vacation rental, and really enjoy meeting and greeting people from all over the world that have come to visit. We hope we will see You soon.
