  • Spacious ranch house

    "We rented the entire house and plenty of space. Two window units in the upstairs section and fans in the lower section. Very spacious with plenty of sheets and towels, water pressure was low but it could be the cost effective shower head that makes it seem extra slow of course you want to ensure there is enough hot water for large groups during the winter times. There is plenty of closed space in each room. Wish we had better access to the river but still enjoyed throwing rocks into the water. Outside patio was a nice addition to sit and relax at with a swinging bench to enjoy. Two TVs upstairs and one in the downstairs with direct tv access on everyone. Older house and great for outdoors adventures, there is an elk head mounted in the sitting area between levels. You can get a good workout if you keep going up and down between levels. Remember this is a ranch house and you may get some bugs. We did get to see a turkey a few times and three white tailed deers wondered up to the barn area...a nice treat for the kids. Grocery store and gas stations close by. Missoula is 15 minutes away if you need more options in stores and dining. Overall it took some getting use to since we had so much space to allow the kids to get lost. My 4 year old loved having his own house....one level was basically his to enjoy on his own. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 5 kids ranging from 4-13 years old. We chose this location for its space to relax and take a few days off together."

  • Exceeds Expectations

    "The house and the setting are beautiful and relaxing. Almost every room has windows that bring the outside into the house. The layout is spacious and intuitively efficient. The appointments and furnishings are lovely and in keeping with the log cabin character of the house. We stayed for 11 nights. Some days we stayed in and just kicked back, and many days we explored the area and hiked on the many trails in the valley. The house has lots of help with books about hikes and trail maps. Although we went out to dinner a few times, more than on other vacations, we cooked because the kitchen was great, and it was just so pleasant to eat at "home." The owner Amy couldn't be nicer or more helpful. She's a wonderful mixture of being available if you need her but never intrusive if you just want to be left alone. Her sheep and goats often come over to the guesthouse property and happily graze on the grass. The goats are a hoot as they try to grab branches on some of the trees by propping themselves up on the trunks. This is one of the loveliest houses we've rented. It's someplace you could actually live and be content. I strongly recommend it."

  • Awesome retreat weekend

    "I was in charge of finding a venue for our woman's retreat. We all live in the bitteroot valley, and wanted a secluded retreat that was close to home. Downing mountain Lodge was perfect. It was secluded, with an awesome view of bitterrot valley. As the woman arrived, the responses were "WOW, AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL and PEACEFUL ". DML was clean, hot tub was clean and heated, kitchen well stocked with all cooking utensils, wood pile well stocked. The great room/dining room was large, and inviting. The large outside deck was perfect for enjoying quiet meditation. The owner was available for any questions/problems, but there was no need, everything was perfect. All in all a very special get away weekend!"

  • The house, the river, the views, the area, the stars...AMAZING!!

    "We stayed at the Riverhouse for almost two weeks and the pictures do not do it justice. Sitting on the back deck surveying the beautiful scenery is fantastic and listening to the river is the ultimate in relaxing. The house was perfect for our needs and the viewing of the stars at night is breathtaking. While in the area we enjoyed the Hiawatha Bike Trail, ziplining and whitewater rafting at Glacier National Park, Big Hole Battlefield, hiking, swimming at the aquatic center in Hamilton and Painted Rock State Park. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy home cooked meals. The owner was friendly and helpful in providing information on the property and the surrounding area. My youngest son uses both a wheelchair and walker and having just two steps into the house, a first floor master bedroom and walk out deck made maneuvering around the property fairly easy for him. I would highly recommend this rental property to anyone!!"
