Property description

This parkside home, is perfectly situated at the bottom of the Rattlesnake neighborhood in beautiful Missoula, Montana. It was completely remodeled within the last 18 months with hickory floors, new stainless steel appliances and new paint and fixtures. The home is a five-minute walk to Mount Jumbo and The University of Montana (UM), a five to ten minute stroll to the Riverfront Trail system, and a fifteen minute walk to downtown, the Farmers Market (May-November), nightclubs and restaurants. A grocery, hardware, and video store are in the mall which is a ten-minute walk from your front door. There is a city park across the street and a view of Mount Jumbo from the deck.

You can float the Clark Fork River, walk home with your tube or stop at Finn and Porter for a drink and/or a bite to eat without ever getting in your car. A motorhome, motorcycle or bike rental may be available directly through the owner of this home for an additional fee. ( For these additions, you will need to reserve them in advance) In fifteen minutes, guests can be at the base of Snow Bowl Ski Resort for downhill skiing or in Pattee Canyon for cross country skiing or on the river fly fishing. Guests can walk to Caras Park for music and food at Out to Lunch or ride a bike to Ogren Field to watch the Osprey ( rookie pro league) play baseball .

Sargent Gregory Park is ten yards away. Greenough Park and Rattlesnake Creek are just five minutes away, and the Rattlesnake Wilderness Gateway, a popular spot for mountain biking, hiking and bird watching, is just a ten-minute drive away. This home features Bosch and JennAir stainless steel appliances, new furniture, plasma HD TV, ceiling fans, air conditioning, an on-demand hot water heater for endless hot showers, a deck with a gas BBQ and beautiful views of Lolo Peak. If you need additional space, I have a luxury 33 foot Class A Monaco Motorhome with Leather interior, its own bathroom and sleeping for four more ( two on the hideabed) that I can set up in the driveway for an additional $100 per night, ( five night minimum). It can be a great place to get away from the rest of the crowd for a nap or a respite when the family and friends are around.

  • Pet Fee $200
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a 59 year old semi retired professional who rents out his home in order to help me travel the world and country. I recycle your vacational rental dollars into my vacation dollars all over the US and world. I am ex Grizzly and been in Montana for 36 years. If you are concerned about who you are renting from, I can provide answers and references.

Why the Owner Chose Missoula:
I personally built this home with my own two hands. I lived in this home for many years before I took some time off to travel and when I return, I love sitting in front of the fire, reading in the morning. The home was completely remodeled 18 months ago and everything in the home is basically brand new. It is very special to me and my family. I have lived in Missoula since 1975 and I can help you find the enjoyment in it too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Its only after living here that you truly appreciate the lower Rattlesnake, which is a true walking neighborhood. You can walk everywhere to the things you need or want to do and because your neighbors do, you will meet many of them very quickly. Once you get here, you won't need a car. You can have a drink with dinner and walk home. Walk to a baseball game, OUT TO LUNCH, or the library or Children's theatre. The best part for me and for you might be just sitting next to the fire reading.
