Missoula cabin description

This peaceful retreat is nestled in the foothills of the Sapphire mountains in Montana's Bitterroot Valley, a 45-minute drive from downtown Missoula and 15 minutes from Florence, the nearest town. From the Missoula airport, you'll drive down the beautiful highway 93 with spectacular views of Rocky Mountain peaks. You'll head east into the hills, winding through forests and meadows to your mountain haven. The cabin is located near a maintained county road and all-wheel drive is recommended, October through May, for the last mile.

Majestic ponderosa pines and a vibrant display of wild flowers surround the cabin. Inside, wide windows to the south and west bring the snow-capped peaks of the Bitterroot Range into view wherever you turn. From sunrise to sunset, you will bask in the immense landscape - inviting you to savor meals on the deck, take a walk among the lupines on nearby trails, or nap with the summer breeze carrying the scent of pines. The abundant natural light and open floor plan create a feeling of calm spaciousness inside the cabin. This unique home features energy-efficient straw bale construction - a solid and durable option with renewable materials.

When you're ready for adventure, culture, dining out or shopping, the surrounding area offers multitudes of opportunities. You can enjoy an active day in the forest, on the river, browsing through shops or taking in some local music or theater; then return in a short amount of time to your serene mountain sanctuary. The cabin shelves are stocked with information about the many options for outdoor fun and city activities.

The nearby Bitterroot River is perfect for fishing, swimming or boating. Local outfitters offer guided fishing, rafting, kayaking and canoeing trips, or you can rent equipment nearby. For land lovers, dozens of hiking and biking trails wind creekside through scenic canyons in the Bitterroot and Missoula valleys. In the winter, the crisp Montana outdoors beckons you to snowshoe, cross-country ski or downhill ski at your choice of areas located within one and a half hours drive; or right outside your door when there's snow.

Missoula is a thriving university town full of shops and restaurants. Local favorites include Saturday morning farmers' markets and weekend music, arts and crafts festivals. Right in the heart of downtown, the riverside Caras Park hosts outdoor live music and food events. A Carousel for Missoula is another popular downtown destination for kids of all ages. Museum lovers will want to check out the Missoula Art Museum and the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula.

When you're spending a quieter day in the hills, the cabin is just a 15-minute drive away from Florence, where you can shop for groceries and other necessities, or savor a slice of pie at the local cafe.

This cabin holds all you need to live the mountain life for a week or two. This getaway is tastefully furnished with cozy new beds, comfortable seating, a fully equipped kitchen, a barbecue and deck furniture. The cabin is designed and set up to ensure you a relaxing vacation.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: I fell in love with Montana the first time I saw it back in 1978 when my mother, brother and I were visiting a sister who was working in West Yellowstone. The beauty of the land spoke deeply to me so I decided to make Montana my home. That decision, combined with buying the land in 1990 and building a straw bale house there in 1994 have been some of the best decisions of my life.

                  Why the Owner Chose Missoula:
                  I purchased the property to build a meditation retreat center, which was the site's initial use for several summers. I chose the location because of the awesome views and the peaceful and healing energy of the land. I built the house with the help of friends and family. It's a very special place to me and to friends who have stayed there over the years and I'm happy to make it available for others to discover its healing magic and peaceful beauty.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  As a lover of the outdoors and wildlife, I appreciate being surrounded by natural beauty at the cabin. Often, I see deer quietly chewing grass, hawks soaring overhead and the most amazing sunsets. The elk herd sometimes passes through the property from the nearby Welcome Creek Wilderness area. I enjoy hiking right from the doorstep, through the forest and meadows. On hot days, I head down to the Bitterroot River to swim or watch birds at the nearby Lee Metcalf bird refuge. The quiet solitude of the place has inspired friends who are artists, musicians and writers to spend time there, creating. The cabin's remoteness as well as it's close proximity to services in Missoula's city center make it an ideal getaway for any length of time.
