Missoula studio description

Brand New Downtown Bab's Condo, Luxury Vacation Rental in Missoula, everything is right here!

Kindly note that we also have two 1 bedroom condos in the Bab's, vrbo listing #488628 and #577475

This premium 331 sq ft studio condo is located in the historic and elegantly restored Bab's building. The charismatic Babs, built in 1905, will take you to the soul of the Missoula community in a heartbeat. Centrally located on Missoula's vibrant Hip Strip, the Babs is surrounded by the city's best restaurants and bakeries. Everything is just a walk away.

The luxury studio condo has been completely remodeled and thoughtfully designed for a very slick, contemporary, but homey 'Industrial feel' and is ideal for out of town visitors looking to explore Missoula and the surrounding area. Completely new, natural and clean interior materials and a big egress window bring lots of natural light to the space. New appliances and other new amenities are complimented by the original sheet rock and brick walls reminding visitors of the old times. The condo comes with a spacious private bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with solid beech wood counter tops, and a comfortable queen-sized bed. The condo compliments also high speed wireless internet, HD flat screen TV and three person couch, which folds down into a two person sofa sleeper.

Along with this clean, comfortable and secure condo come the additional onsite features for relaxation and entertainment:
- An entirely renovated, communal basement lounge including an official sized pool table, a big screen Cable TV and comfortable seating. Also an icebox, sink, toilet, and washer and dryer are easily accessible.
- A classic, fenced garden with a large communal patio including chairs, tables, benches and a propane Viking grill.

Kindly note: Families with kids welcome! Available for guest use are: a pack and play crib with blankets, pillows and linens. Also a high chair, an umbrella stroller, books, toys, stuffed animals and some kid's dining ware.

The luxury condo is in the basement. The washer and dryer and the communal lounge are located in the basement as well. The condo's ceiling is well insulated from sound and you wouldn't be sharing next door walls with any other condos in the building.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Missoula, as for many people, is a special place to us. It is where we met as students in college and where we always knew we wanted to call home. After school, however, life and work took us to Asia, Finland and New York City, before we could both settle back in Missoula together and start our family. Now with our daughter Maija, we are pleased to share all that the Missoula community has to offer with visitors at our Bab’s condo.

              Why the Owner Chose Missoula:
              Jenni first came to Missoula as an exchange student attending grad school from Finland. She immediately fell in love with the surrounding landscape and community but most of all Kurt. Kurt’s family is from the area and always knew the Montana lifestyle was the only one for him. They both enjoy the outdoor and cultural opportunities Missoula has to offer including skiing up Pattee Canyon, taking their daughter Maija to Missoula’s award winning Children’s Theater or enjoying Missoula’s restaurants, breweries and distilleries. They feel fortunate to call Missoula home and are pleased to share their love of the area with each of their guests.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              The Babs is one of Missoula’s premiere historic buildings.
