Welcome to the Duck Lake Vacation Rental Cabin!
About Duck Lake Vacation Rental
The Duck Lake Vacation Rental is a lakefront cabin in the woods with modern amenities, and is located just 8 miles north of the town of Columbia Falls, Montana & minutes to the West Glacier and Camas Creek entrances of Glacier National Park. Situated on an acre of land overlooking Duck Lake (a small, shallow lake on the west side of Glacier National Park) and Forest Service land, this cabin rental near Glacier National Park has everything you need to get away from it all yet stay connected to civilization. Built in 2002, it has WiFi, washer/dryer, microwave, home theater system with Bluetooth technology, gas grill, satellite TV and more.
Enjoy quiet evenings by a crackling fire in the chiminea (outdoor fireplace) on the covered 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 satellite TV or DVDs & eating popcorn. Indoors or out, keep an eye on the activity around the lake and you might even spot a reclusive moose or foraging bear!
The Duck Lake Vacation Rental cabin has a loft bedroom with a king bed with an extra thick, plush mattress and full ensuite bath. Downstairs you will find a queen bedroom with an extra thick mattress and a full bath. The cabin also has a modern, fully stocked kitchen and a full sized washer and dryer. High quality cooking utensils, linens and soap products are provided for your use during your stay. 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.
The little Duck Lake which the cabin borders has returned to being more of a seasonal lake now that the beavers have left (they left about 3 years ago). The dam they had built and faithfully maintained for years has now become worn and porous, allowing much of the water being fed into Duck Lake to flow downstream. In 2017, the abandoned beaver dam started to fail significantly. The lake will be full when the spring runoff of snowmelt occurs, but the water level will get lower throughout the summer and fall. Even though the lake may look more like a pond from mid-summer through fall, this lower water level can be more attractive to certain wildlife like moose. The photo of the moose below was taken in late summer many years ago before the beavers moved in — you can see the tall grasses and lily pads around him as he stands in the water right in front of the deck. The water view from the house and deck will change from Spring through Fall, but is always beautiful and peaceful!
