  • Loved it!

    "My husband and I spent 4 nights at Withy Gate and were very pleased with it. Clean as a pin with everything we needed and more. Kris's personal touches were appreciated. Loved the patio area and it is located in a great location in Hamilton. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Montana's Eagle's Nest

    "Our extended family of 9, including 6 adults and 3 children (9,5 & 5), stayed at Eagle's Nest for one week. The house easily accommodated all of us, with room to spare, and was perfect for our family. The house was very clean and had lovely interior decor. There were enough bedrooms to sleep everyone, with very comfortable mattresses. The master bedroom was wonderful, with a large bathroom and jetted tub as well as shower. We had some concerns that there would not be enough bathrooms for 9, but it did not prove to be the case. We never even used the bathroom in the basement. The kitchen was well equipped (although a microwave would have been nice to have) and there was a very nice gas grill outside. We cannot say too much about the 360 degree view from the house -- spectacular. The numerous balconies around the house were wonderful ways to relax and enjoy the vistas. The children enjoyed exploring the area. Although it was a little trek to get there, the view and the house are worth it and getting there was part of the fun. The owners of the home were very friendly, helpful and accommodating and were nearby. Our experience at Eagle's Nest was a very good one and we hope to return sometime in the future."

  • Look no further for the perfect vacation/fly-fishing destination!

    "We spent four days here in May to attend graduation and immediately knew we had to come back! We have stayed in VRBO rentals in Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada, the San Juan Islands and elsewhere, this ranks as the best to date!! The house is IMMACULATE as are the grounds, and set far enough off the highway for no road noise. Everything is well maintained and in good working order, the kitchen is well stocked and needs nothing. As for the fishing, we didn't need to leave the property once! There are so many spots to fish on what seems like miles of easily accessed river (Bitterroot)... The only tough decision was which spot to fish and when. The big front porch was a nightly hit, sitting with a glass of wine and watching the lightening over the mountains! Grocery shopping/Sporting goods are close by in Hamilton or an easy drive to Missoula. More than one evening I was joined on the river by a family of white tail deer. My only regret was deciding to fly and leaving my bicycle at home. I could go on and on, but until you visit words are just not enough! The fishing was so good I'll need Physical Therapy to rehab the tendonitis in my elbow..... Thank you Thomas and Marilyn for making this wonderful retreat available!"
