"This really is a perfect getaway location for any groups/parties that are looking to see Western Montana at it's finest! Although it's less than an hour drive from Missoula, the seclusion, privacy and beauty of the lodge will make you feel like you've driven days into the wilderness. The owner, Ray, was very helpful, accommodating and reasonable throughout the entire process. You really can't go wrong with this rental.
There were 5 couples and 4 children in our group, and everyone had a great time, as there is plenty to do inside and outside of the house. In addition to nice, clean, private bedrooms, the kitchen was fully loaded with everything we needed to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as even do some baking. When it got dark, we spent most of our time in the garage, which is heated, where we had intense ping-pong and fuse-ball tournaments. There is also a ladder ball and folf goal that can easily be set up outside during the day.
During the day, it's a quick, beautiful walk down to the Clark Fork River, which is private and as gorgeous as it gets (the only thing we saw moving down there was the train and a black bear!). We also took advantage of hiking in the 30-square mile national forest adjacent to the property, and we did a scenic 4-mile raft trip down the Clark Fork as well. Although we didn't get a chance to fly fish, we saw plenty of trout in the holes located close to the lodge.
The house is fully stocked with whatever you need, and we had no complaints in regards to anything being dirty or broken. Again, I highly recommend this property, as it will not disappoint!"
