"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

A hidden gem in downtown Hamilton
Our stay couldn't have been better. The apartment was beautiful and equipped with everything we needed and more! Craig was a delight to meet and even stocked the refrigerator with breakfast. There is a beautiful deck upstairs and a delightful wine bar downstairs. The apartment was so clean and beautifully decorated. Its in a great location. walking distance to all of downtown. We enjoyed meeting you craig and hope to see you again soon. Mark and Kathy

The Scandia House is absolutely fantastic!
We had a great stay at the Scandia House. It exceeded our expectations! Very well appointed! Very tastefully renovated! Kitchen fridge was stocked with basic breakfast food, which was absolutely fantastic! Would highly recommend to anyone!
Fabulous stay in Scandinavia loft!
What a lovely place to stay in Hamilton!! The decor was super. It was sparkling clean and comfortable. All the amenities were great, and the owners had so many thoughtful touches! We especially loved the breakfast items left in the refrigerator for us.
Wonderful place to stay
The loft is really beautiful and comfortable with nice furnishings. A lovely renovation was done on the property. It is downtown and convenient to shops, restaurants and a grocery. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and spices. Breakfast food is also provided and was well more than we could eat. That was very nice since we could be set for the day. The owner was very kind. Hamilton is a cute town and close to a variety of things to do. We enjoyed dinner in the wine bar downstairs one night. Highly recommend this accommodation.
