Recent Missoula reviews

  • Montana getaway

    "Beautiful log home living about 30 minutes from Missoula. Lots of wildlife around the house, with deer in the yard most mornings and evenings. The creek out back was easy to get to and cast on. The house was clean and inviting with a nice view of a small cattle ranch across the road and mountains in the background. The majority of dining options seemed to be in Missoula about 30 minutes away although there's a pretty good steakhouse the other way on I90 about 15 minutes or so. The house kitchen made it easy to stay in and eat as well as fix the all important morning pot of coffee. All in all a vacation I will remember fondly."

  • Great location, clean, contemporary, fun.

    "Stayed in the condo for a week in May. Will consider renting again. Unusual and delightful sleeping arrangements (bed retracts into ceiling when not in use.) Some may be put off by this, I found it very fun and crafty solution for a small space. Linens, towels, etc. were new, and about the quality you would expect from a newer Holiday Inn Express or Courtyard Marriott. Much better than average. Extraordinary views of the valley (sunsets) and city. Don't miss Scotty's Table (restaurant downstairs) for dinner. Owner was on time for key exchange, and very accommodating and friendly. Parents visiting UM students would love this place - relatively close to campus. Damage deposit was returned promptly. Owner put a great deal of thought into this property. Unique...nothing like it in Missoula."

  • Great family friendly cabin

    "We were in Missoula visiting family. We enjoyed the wonderful location, a little outside the town but close to the grocery store and very quiet. Our youngest child enjoyed having some toys to play with and the older ones loved the spread out layout of the home. The wireless internet was so great and we were able to hookup our iPhone into the stereo (using our own cable) and listen to our favorite tunes while relaxing in the cute living room. Our family found the home to be restful, beautiful and just like being at home! Thanks to Britt for communicating so well and making sure we felt welcome."

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "This cabin was exactly as described. I was in Missoula for the marathon and decided to make it a week long vacation. This cabin was secluded offering privacy, peace and quiet, and breathtaking views. I truly enjoyed spending the evening on the front porch with a glass of wine and a good book. The owners are super knowledgable and very quick to respond. I highly recommend! Thanks for an awesome trip."

Missoula has a variable climate with relatively large diurnal variations. The climate is classified as semi-arid. Summer months are generally hot and dry. Daytime temperatures often reach around 84 degrees Fahrenheit during the month of July. However, the evenings often get quite cold, owing to the arid terrain. The spring and autumn seasons are relatively short. The winter months are cold and wet with regular snowfalls. Although Missoula's winters are considered to be milder than the rest of the state, on average, the region has around 43 inches of snow annually. Most visitors prefer the warmer summer months when they can explore all the city's attractions, in particular the biking paths and hiking trails. For those who are visiting to view the art attractions, the galleries and museums are open all year long.
