The spacious Main House features a separate bedroom perfect for a romantic get-away, or for the hosts of a larger party. This 1450 square ft. main house includes a master bed + bath suite, an open concept living room with a beautiful stone fireplace, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with attached dining area, and a banquet table that comfortably seats 16 people. Let's not forget the other wonderful parts of the main house; a screened sun porch, large pantry, laundry area, and full two car garage.
The adjoining Bunkhouse provides rooms for parties of three or more. This includes two private bedrooms, a fun bunk room that sleeps eight children or adults, a full bathroom, with double sinks, and a family room. The Bunkhouse garage contains a ping-pong table, refrigerator, and a second washer and dryer.
The Bunkhouse sleeps up to 14 and includes two private bedrooms with queen size beds and a bunkroom, which has four sets of twin sized bunk beds. The family room contains a queen sized sleeper sofa, so the Bunkhouse alone sleeps 14 people comfortably.
For all 3-16 person parties, the adjoining Bunkhouse will be added to your reservation. The Main House and Bunkhouse are attached by a covered breezeway.
Both the Main House and the Bunkhouse are newly constructed using the finest materials and craftsmanship. High ceilings, wood floors, large windows, granite counter tops, slate tile, and handmade log furnishings can are found throughout this home. All aspects of this property have been crafted with warmth and beauty in mind. Central heating and a large stone fireplace keep our guests cozy in all seasons. Enjoy unmatched views of the Bitterroot River, Bitterroot Mountain Range, and our private meadow from every window in the house.
The diverse activities offered by Mom's Place allows this property to stand on it's own, but for the adventurous soul it is only five miles from the Painted Rocks Reservoir and other outdoor activities. These activites include hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, white water rafting, fishing, floating, and boating. We recommend hiking Baker Creek, exploring the Lost Trail Ski Area, Lost Trail Hot Springs, mining for crystals, and white water rafting on the Salmon River. For those more interested in shopping and local history, Mom's Place is less than 20 miles from the quaint town of Darby. Darby is famous for it's antique stores and summer festivals; most famously the Darby Logger Days held in July.
The scenic drive through the Bitterroot Valley to and from Missoula is known by residents as one of the most beautiful stretches in the state.

Mom's Place is the ultimate Montana get-away. Just 14 miles up St HWY 473 (West Fork Road) on the West Fork of the Bitterroot River out of Conner, MT. This home sits right on the banks of the river. 87 miles from Missoula International Airport, the drive up the Bitterroot Valley is one of the most scenic and beautiful drives in the state. Less than 20 miles to restaurants, groceries, antique stores, sporting goods etc in Darby.
About the owner: My name is Paige. Mom's Place is truly a dream brought to reality by our mother, Kathryn. When construction finished in 2001, Mom had successfully designed both a vacation home for herself, and a gathering place for her six children and ten grandchildren. What an achievement! Mom had a giving heart; as much as she loved using this property, she also loved to lend it so others could bring their families and friends together.
Why the Owner Chose Darby: Mom's Place is away from it all, yet close to outdoor and historical adventure. Located on nearly a mile of private river frontage on the West Fork of the Bitterroot River, the 'backyard' fishing access can't be beat.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Some of the many benefits of this property are the private location, large party accommodation, and direct fishing access. It is beautiful, relaxing, and restful.
