THE STONEHOUSE! LAKE FRONTAGE, GNP E. SIDE, ST. MARYS, MANY GLACIER

East Glacier Park House Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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.

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose East Glacier Park

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.

What makes this house unique

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?

Enjoyable

We had a great stay at Stonehouse enjoying fishing on the Blackfoot reserve. This is a great basecamp to explore Glacier park, for fishing, or just for relaxing.

Great experience

Fantastic views, great fishing, beautiful space and location! The only thing I would improve on was the cleanliness in the kitchen, but I would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: Dear Dallas, I just saw your review and would like to take the time to apologize that the cleanliness of the StoneHouse kitchen was not up to your standards. I personally clean the house myself to insure consistence and professionalism and take great pride in the fact that there is never evidence of prior guest and everything is in order and ready for you stay. Our 5 star rating across the board is evidence of this. Unfortunately, for your one night stay in March, I was not able to travel the 2:30 hour drive over the mountains to clean the house myself and had to delegate the responsibility to someone else. They obviously didn't do the job to my standards. I hope this will not keep you from considering us the next time you are in the area.

Thanks,


David

Fall Stay at the Stonehouse

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Stonehouse. As far as we can tell, this is the nicest home at Duck Lake. What a great location for visiting the East side of Glacier Park. The fishing at Duck Lake was excellent and David readily offered great advice on this and other hiking opportunities in the area. The view of the peaks in Glacier Park cannot be adequately portrayed in photos. It is absolutely fantastic. The home is well-equipped, clean and comfortable. We look forward to another visit!

Great Base Camp for Glacier National Park Visit

  • 5 of 5
We had a great visit to Glacier National Park (best by far our favorite park over Yellowstone and Grand Tetons), made even better by our stay at The Stonehouse at Duck Lake. The Stonehouse is new-rustic and quite comfortable. The two bedrooms were perfect for housing our family of two adults and four daughters who shared the bunk & queen bedroom. It was a perfect setting to start and end full days of hiking, wading and sightseeing at GNP. Every sunrise and sunset was uniquely beautiful and lightning over the mountains was striking to watch. The location gave us quick access to the park from multiple entry points at St. Mary's, Many Glacier & Watertown Lakes in Canada. Our daily excursions to and from The Stonehouse were an adventure in themselves with cows and horses roaming roadside and right up to the house in the mornings. Bird watching from the cabin became hands on when the girls rescued a stunned yellow warbler that had flown into the side of the house. Great locale for night sky gazing, on clear nights able to easily spot satellites and meteors, although recent bear activity had us a bit skittish about roaming outside at night. We enjoyed meeting the owner, David Walburn and his friend John, and hope to make it back there again to take advantage of the dock they were building which will be a nice addition to the property. David's show at Many Glacier Lodge and his music was a Montana experience in itself that widened our appreciation for Montana history.

Stonehouse is Great!

  • 5 of 5
My family recently stayed at the Stonehouse. It is a peaceful property and is a great home base to see the Eastern side of Glacier, such as St. Mary, Many Glacier, and Two Medicine. It was really nice to come back to the house after a very busy day of hiking and driving around. Making meals in the modern kitchen, looking out the picture window at the mountains, seeing meandering cattle and horses, and sleeping in comfortable beds was great. Also, it is near a lake so we saw pelicans, bald eagles and heard loon song at night.

I would highly recommend a family staying here. Thanks David for the great house!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Perfect! We found Stonehouse to be just right for our family. We explored Glacier during the day and had a comfortable place to return too and relax. Beautiful view of the Mountains from the large picture window which changes in beauty with sunrise/sunsets. A great family table to gather and play games, getting away from electronics is a must for our family with 4 teenagers. Stonehouse is a perfect location to get really acquainted with GNP. After one day exploring the West side of Glacier we were so thankful to be staying at Duck Lake with far less crowds and great access to Two Medicine, Many Glacier and Waterton Lakes. Getting to experience David's performance at the Many Glacier Lodge solidified our Montana experience!
