Great Montana Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little out of the way spot. Plenty of room we travelled with four kids and the dog. Yard was large enough to set up games and the fresh chicken eggs were awesome! My boys loved going out and collecting them. Only one bathroom but with a great tub. Beds were comfy and had good pillows. No WiFi but there is plenty to do without it. Super close to Lake Como and some good spots on the river. House was well stocked with towels, dishes, and pans to cook. This is a great spot for a family and would be good for just adults too.

Location is about halfway between Hamilton and Darby so if you’re spending time in Hamilton or Missoula it adds to the drive. If you are planning activities at Como or further south this is a great spot. Will definately stay again when we come back.

Great Montana getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic! The chickens, fresh eggs, greenhouse and mountain views are wonderful! Perfect for families. There's no wifi and honestly it was wonderful to unplug for a few days. It's outside of the city and really close to many attractions. Beds were really comfy and it was quite and peaceful.

Amazing! Very pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

This little getaway is SO cute and farmhouse-y, clean and simple. The property is amazing with chickens, garden, greenhouse, picnic table, grill, fire pit, lawn, mini forest, and a little stream for our kids to play in. We were very pleasantly surprised. The pictures do not do justice to how amazing this place is-we wanted to show it off to all our friends. We enjoyed it very much and wished we could have stayed much longer. Only issue we had was tracking down the address to arrive-website didn't give an exact street address, and owner was out of cell service for a few hours. Luckily we were able to zoom in on google maps and see some lane names and then recognize the house once we were on the street.

Neat Little House.

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice home away from home. My wife has chickens and a garden so she felt right at home!! Nice little place, centrally located to all the hikes in the bitteroots which worked well for us. Lots of room to turn pickups and trailers around. Great view of the mountains, quiet neighbors, will stay again if we are back in the valley!!!

Boulder, co

This property is stunning in every way

  • 5 of 5

First off, we loved the location of this place. Just a 10 minute drive into town, it was really peaceful and had stunning views. The home itself was exactly what we needed; simple, very clean, had all the amenities for cooking, plus fresh eggs and strawberries from the garden! I wish we had more time here, next time we are back this would be my first choice. Lamar was also very helpful, letting us check in early and quick to respond to texts.
