"The Scandia House Loft" was a labor of Love, it took two years to restore this former house of Pleasure. In the process of restoration we discovered old coins, whore house tokens, old newspapers ,wooden nickels and other artifacts. It left us with this beautiful place in downtown Hamilton, Montana over The Blodgett Canyon Cellars Wine Bar and Tasting Room... we added a lovely 2nd floor deck with access to the roof top lounge with a fantastic view of the Bitter-root and Sapphire Mountains. You'll agree it is an enchanting place to stay...We look forward to meeting you all...

What makes this Villa unique
My wife and I bought this Property two years ago. It was the 2nd or 3rd brick building on Main Street. The city father "Marcus Daly The Copper King" built the Bank 1st and the Scandia Whore House 2nd or 3rd. In 1897, 120 years ago we didn't know it at the time but, we bought the downtown religious shrine (Just Kidding). As we took it apart we found old coin, whorehouse tokens and the gabled skylights. It looks like a crystal palace now compared to the dark hole it was. Then we put in a roof top lounge, 2nd floor deck, restored the murals downstairs and opened The Blodgett Canyon Callers Wine Bar. Upstairs we put, in tin ceilings 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The cozy bar has an 1875 railroad map and club chairs it has a great vibe through out. We put up a 5 piece wainscot to represent the way we felt it would have looked back in the day, I used gold and black oriental rugs all a round. The street side great room has a beautiful gas fireplace and dining area. Well equipped Kitchen with a Black walnut island for your prep work

Wonderful weekend in Hamilton, Cozy stay at this property, will stay again when visiting family. Highly recommend this beautiful property.
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and wished we could just move in and stay forever! Great flow and spacious for entertaining. My family of 7 came to visit and we all had plenty of room to sit and visit. The refrigerator was stocked for breakfast with eggs, bacon, English muffins, OJ, coffee, a case of bottled water and some pepsi. Owner met us for check in and showed us how everything worked. Perfect location in town for walking to restaurants. Grocery store across the street. Perfect. Can’t wait to come stay again!
Amazing stay in downtown Hamilton
The apartment was in a perfect location and is very well-kept. My co-worker who stayed here absolutely loved it, and we are most definitely going to book again when we're back in town. Craig is also an amazing host and I would recommend his property to anybody.
Beautifully Restored Gem on Main Street in Hamilton
This spacious cozy loft on Main Street was so charming and sparkling clean and is walking distance to great restaurants, markets, gift shops, coffee shops, bars, breweries and wineries (Blodgett Canyon Wine Tasting Room is directly below the loft, which is a fun, very romantic place to enjoy dinner and a great glass of wine at the end of your day). The loft also has everything you would need and more. I highly recommend The Scandinavia House and we really hated to leave. Next visit, we will be staying longer.
