Missoula house description
Off the beaten path, but just a short 25 minute drive from Missoula, this cozy private home sits on nearly 2 wooded acres overlooking the Clark Fork River. A large front porch provides spectacular mountain views framed by the Clark Fork River and picturesque countryside. It's fun to sit on the porch and watch for Bald Eagles soaring above the river while counting coal trains traveling on the track below.
The house features an open floor plan with two private bedrooms (both with queen size beds) and an office with a queen size futon that sleeps an additional two people. Additional sleeping accommodations include a high quality queen size air mattress with memory foam top. Feel free to bring your little ones as the house is furnished with a pack-n-play, and high-chair. The gourmet kitchen features stainless appliances and granite counter tops. The spa-like master bedroom has a jetted tub with European style shower. The second full bathroom off the living area is equipped with a stand up shower. The large deck is a great place to have dinner while enjoying the river and mountain views and watching the sun set. After dinner, you can enjoy some quiet time on the private covered patio in the back.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, the cottage is located in the heart of all the magnificence that western Montana has to offer. Located two miles from the Petty Creek fishing access and 4 miles from the Nine Mile fishing access of the Clark Fork River, and a short drive from the Bitterroot and Blackfoot Rivers, this spot is an anglers dream. During hunting season, one can enjoy unlimited access to public lands minutes from the house. All year round there are excellent opportunities to spot deer, elk, bald eagles, and much more including the occasional black bear.
The famous Alberton Gorge, home of some of the best whitewater rafting in western Montana, is only few minutes away. Or take a 25 mile scenic drive to the Lolo recreation area, which includes hot springs, hiking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. For mountain bikers, skiiers and snowboarders, Snowbowl and Lookout Pass are within an hour's drive from the house and offer both summer and winter recreation activities. Enjoy!

Great view! Tons of room

The property and the house were well maintained, clean and very comfortable for 6 adults. We spent the day rafting on the nearby clark fork river and then came back and spent the evening relaxing on the porch, grilling dinner, and taking in the beautiful view. Our dogs had a great time chasing each other around the large property. Easily accessible from I90 but you definitely feel like you are away from it all!

We stayed at this cozy home for a month from July 15 - Aug 15 last year and truly enjoyed our stay. There is a view of the river from the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and deck. Twice the train rolls around the river and it looks like something from a postcard. The house was equiped with all we needed and was perfect for our month in Montana. We enjoyed daily walks down to the river, wildlife, and coffee on the deck several times a day. The cool mountain air made sleeping perfect. We loved staying here and are sure you will too. Just 30 minutes from downtown Missoula, it is a perfect location for some down-time.
