About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

This immaculate, quiet guest apartment, which comprises the second story of our log garage, can be rented by the night, week, or for possible short term (up to approximately 2 months, at a significantly reduced rate). It is located minutes from downtown Hamilton (walkable to town and to the river) in a quiet, park-like setting in the foothills of the Bitterroot Mountains. The guest quarters features a large family/game room with two convertible beds, Comfy Sack lounger, fold-up ping-pong table, Wi-Fi, TV and DVD/VCR, Quadra-Fire gas stove, and two opening skylights. Fully equipped kitchenette contains several countertop appliances, dishes and utensils, as well as convection, microwave, and toaster ovens. Under the counter refrigerator/freezer plus separate larger refrigerator/freezer in mudroom. The large bedroom boasts a queen bed, private balcony, its own Quadra-Fire gas stove, and through-wall air conditioner. Outside, you can enjoy a patio with a small table and chairs and a bbq grill.

There is an exercise room on the main floor of the garage as well as in-door parking for 1-2 cars. The exercise room features a weight machine with a leg press, flywheel rower, NordicTrack skier, and recumbent stationary bike.

We are convenient to world class fly-fishing, hiking, backpacking, downhill and cross-country skiing, and a host of other outdoor activities as well as some of the finest Wilderness areas in the US.

Hamilton is located less than an hour away from Missoula, a quintessential mountain university town and cultural hub of western Montana, and a few hours drive of Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. In addition to state parks and ski areas in the vicinity, there is also a local ski area with world class snow 45 miles south of Hamilton.

About The Owner

We have lived in our home (which is adjacent to the guest house) since 1988. We love the Bitterroot Valley and are proud of our community. We enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and skiing (both downhill and cross country). We also enjoy the performing arts, especially our local Performing Art Center and the Hamilton Players, our local community theater. Our Saturday Farmer's Market is the best!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Hamilton

We wanted to provide a place that we would like to have found to stay with our children several years ago when we traveled with them. Our place is clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet, reasonably priced, and is totally separated from our home, so that guests have full privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

We have a ping-pong table, an indoor exercise room, and indoor parking. We give guests a garage door opener so that they can come and go as they please with privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your hospitality -- we will be contacting you again. This was a perfect place for us!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

RoesMary and David are exceptional people, very friendly and accommodating.

The apartment was neat as a pin and in a beautiful location.

Down town Hamilton is a 10 minute drive as well as some beautiful mountain trails for hiking.

I highly recommend this vacation property, you will be well taken care of!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about cleanliness, quiet, comfortable, and providing everything you need. As for "luxury" we have never claimed or advertised to be a "luxury" place. That said, we cater to folks (particularly families) who are looking for a nice, comfortable, private place with a convenient location; one is CLEAN, spacious, and has comfy beds. RoseMary and David

Quick Trip

  • 5 of 5

Though this was a short stay it was a fabulous accommodation for our family. The owners were incredibly helpful and understanding of our needs as we blew through town. It is a lovely apartment and a place we will be staying again when we visit Hamilton. Our kids loved having the ping-pong table and fun games. We all just wish we could have spent more time there.

Short but amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stopped on our way through from Oregon and found the accommodations to be just as described and more. The hosts were very helpful with great recommendations for things to do and see in Hamilton. The use of a garage was an unexpected plus. Would recommend this rental to anyone.

Perfect location for Bitteroot

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accomodations for a couple like ourselves, as well as for larger family groupings with kids.

Property had everything as advertised, and was spotless, homey, and comfortable..

Easy to settle in. Relaxed rural atmosphere outside of Hamilton, but close to all town conveniences.

Owners were especially helpful in providing maps and guidance for hiking spots, scenery, local farmer's market, galleries, town fair, etcetera. Highly recommended.
