Recent Bitterroot Valley reviews

  • Just what we were looking for!

    "We recently spent 4 nights at this property, and it was EXACTLY what we were looking for! Fairly remote, peaceful, quiet, close to Conner, Darby, and not too far from Hamilton... And right in the middle of the mountains and forest, with rivers and lakes all around! We found oodles of huckleberries nearby to pick and consume, and my family of 7 (5 kids!) enjoyed all the outdoor opportunities to play and/or relax! This house (2 buildings, actually) gave us lots of sleeping options, and our oldest (teenage) son loved being able to sleep in the room over the garage and away from the house (apart from the house but not too far!). The owners were wonderful to us, helping us on site as well as working hard to mail us some things we accidentally left behind. Very nice to have that, as it's above and beyond the call. Bottom line, we felt at home, and although it isn't a super "plush" place, it's exactly as advertised, which we appreciated. We'd stay here again if we plan a trip this way in the future!"

  • above the rainbows

    "Welcoming atmosphere was the first impression of everyone arriving at the lodge, we had a two night family stay and all wished we had more time. A partially rainy day led to beautiful skies and rainbows that we were looking down on. Yep, had to get pictures of that! We all enjoyed hiking the mountain with the fall colors, exploring rock outcrops, tending the fire, cooking in the great kitchen. A special moment occurred when the almost two year old boy heard the piano for the first time. His face lit up, he circled the round room several times before finding his great grandmother at the piano. A first music lesson became a cherished memory for all of us. The comfortable beds, including a crib, the convenient bathroom setup and totally great space have the family hoping to come back again."

  • Sitting on the deck feels like your flying over the valley!

    "Sitting on the deck, watching the large fluffy clouds, the sun slowly rolled over from hill to hill, highlighting different peaks and valleys - a real treat to watch! You feel on top of the world. The jacuzzi was GREAT! Beautiful home with all amenities, and accommodating owners. We do recommend arriving for the first time in the daylight."

  • Ski Trip Stay

    "We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the river house. Most of our group had never been to Lost Trail and we really enjoyed getting to know the mountain, even though the snow conditions were marginal. It was spring skiing in February. Pretty easy to imagine how great it would be on a powder day! A fisherman in our group caught 2 Browns and 3 cutthroat after skiing - you don't get to that every day! The accommodations were perfect, very nice place to stay!"
