Relax in our new custom built home on 7 1/2 private fenced and gated acres with panoramic Glacier Park vistas of the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Enjoy the views and solitude from the expansive redwood deck overlooking active beaver ponds where wildlife and birds abound. Moose, bear, deer, fox, waterfowl, and songbirds are frequent visitors where they share with us the natural beauty of Montana. Our home is sheltered in a gently sloping aspen
grove with berry bushes, dogwood, and marsh grasses surrounding the ponds. The property is located two miles from the village of East Glacier Park (Amtrak stop) and from there a short drive to the entrance of Glacier National Park.
The house consists of three bedrooms and two baths. There are two 4' showers and an antique clawfoot tub where one can luxuriate after a long days hike. Each bedroom has mountain and pond views. The two main floor bedrooms each have two twin beds while the upstairs master bedroom has a king bed where the sunsets and alpenglow will amaze you. Go to sleep to the sound of beaver tails slapping the pond surface reminding you of the wilderness around you.
The open floor plan on the main level has 12' ceilings with knotty pine paneling, circular-sawn wood floors, solid maple kitchen cabinetry, and limitless views of mountain peaks. Sit in the comfortable living room recounting your days events or daydreaming as you overlook the ponds, Mt. Henry and Scenic Point. The dining area has a large oak table with seating for up to ten dinner guests. In building our dream home, much thought and effort went into designing the kitchen. In this large space you have the accoutrements and prep area to create the simplest of Montana breakfasts to the haute cuisine of a gourmet 5 star restaurant.
The optional sleeping cabin can accommodate two guests with a double futon bed and a twin bed, electric heat. It has rustic pine paneling, wood floors, and views of the main pond and mountain peaks. The cabin has no plumbing but is only a few short steps from the main house. Ask owner about extra charge to use the sleeping cabin.
Whether you are whitewater rafting, kayaking, fishing the renowned Blackfeet Reservation lakes or in Glacier Park, summiting the surrounding peaks, hiking the picturesque Glacier Park trails, horseback riding, attending Pow Wow Days in Browning, golfing, sightseeing on the scenic Going to the Sun Road or hiking out your front door on tribal lands, you can be certain that an adventure awaits you in Big Sky Country. No matter where the events of the day may lead you, there is always a warm comfortable home awaiting your return.
We are avid outdoor lovers that feel a deep connection to the wilds of Montana. We have designed and built this home ourselves with craftsmanship and careful attention to detail.

The Rocky Mountain Front is one of the true wild places in the lower 48 states. The proximity to Glacier National Park and the surrounding untrammeled lands drew us to this unique location.
We are able to immerse ourselves in the surrounding beauty whether walking around the ponds or relaxing on the sofa gazing out the picture windows.
We have always had great experiences with VRBO rentals, but this one was the best place in which we have stayed. The cabin provided easy access to Two Medicine, St. Mary's, and Many Glacier. It also was an easy drive to West Glacier. This made for a perfect home base for all of our Glacier National Park adventures.
The cabin was comfortable and well set up. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates and utensils, and we used the gas grill to cook up supper on more than one occasion. We enjoyed being able to cook breakfast, pack our lunch for days in the park, and cook supper when the day was done. The quiet solitude of this rental was refreshing. We spent a lot of time looking out at the beautiful views on the property. While we were there, the huckleberry's were thick and ripe. We did spot a moose on two occasions, including once wading across the pond.
The owners stopped by the first night to make sure that we had everything we needed. They really went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience. Their guest book in the cabin is filled with lots of stories of great experiences. It is also a good source of information on the places people enjoyed visiting and the wildlife they encountered.
We enjoyed this vacation so much that we are talking about returning next year and adding a few more days to the vacation. If we do, this property will definitely be the place we will book to serve as our home away from home.
We were debating whether to stay in a private location or a big lodge for our trip to Glacier National Park. We are so glad we stayed here. It was so relaxing and calm. The house was very spacious and it was very clean from kitchen to bathrooms, bedrooms and living areas. It was the perfect place to have a couple of very slow mornings before heading to Glacier NP and a nice calm place to wind down after a busy day in the park. Owners were very responsive when we needed to make contact. They also suggested some great places eat (Serranos, the Mexican restaurant was indeed fantastic). This was an all round great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay around East Glacier for more privacy and peace than the big hotels/lodges can offer.
Very convenient location to all of East Glacier & beyond. The home is very well appointed and comfortable. (Even better than the photos). Our group of 3 couples had plenty of space to relax. The covered deck overlooks a stream & wet lands and was a perfect place to unwind after our hikes. The kitchen has everything you need to fix a gourmet meal. It was well stocked with supplies you don't always find in a rental. Barbara & Phil were exceptional with communications and making sure that everything was in order for our stay. Thanks Barbara & Phil, we had a splendid good time at Stunning Peaks! We highly recommend this property.
We felt we'll taken care of by Barb and Phil who made it clear they were available to help with whatever questions we might have. The house is airy and clean and had a beautiful view - and it's a hop skip and a jump through jaw dropping vistas to get to the best the park has to offer. There are also several tasty places to eat in Nearby East Glacier. We felt lucky to stay at this beautiful home!
We LOVED staying at this house! It was beautiful and inviting inside. Great view from the master bedroom. Our family of 6 had plenty of space to enjoy our time. The owners were wonderful to communicate with. The house was clean and had all the basics for cooking. They had several jackets our kids wore because we were not prepared for the cooler temps, and they loved using walking sticks. Easy to get to the east entrance of park and not a bad drive to the west entrance. We had a wonderful stay here and would stay here again.
What a great house this is ! We loved our stay here because it was a very comfortable home with windows and decks to see the mountains as well as the wildlife. We found everything we needed in the kitchen as well as games, laundry and bear spray. The house is very clean and modern with great furniture, heat and everything you might need. Phil had good suggestions about places to eat and places to go see. Staying on this side of the Park was so much more enjoyable. You have easy access to the West Side of Glacier for day trips as well as less traffic and a more laid back atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about this house and the people who own it. I would love to go back and stay here longer.
