Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

For less than the cost of a hotel room you can stay on the top floor of downtown Missoula's historic Wilma Theater. Built in 1921, 'The Wilma' is one of Western Montana's most famous buildings and its original apartment units have recently been converted into condominiums. This is your chance to stay and share in a piece of Missoula history!

This is the perfect place to stay when you are in Missoula for business, summer or winter vacations, fly fishing, kayaking/river-rafting, University of Montana Grizzly football games, film festivals, visiting nearby family, weddings, or for any other reason you find yourself in beautiful Western Montana.

Located in the heart of Missoula's thriving downtown, this loft is within walking distance of incredible dining and entertainment opportunities including movies and an award-winning restaurant in the building itself! Also included in your stay is one off-street parking spot, reserved just for you.

Plan ahead to stay and enjoy panoramic views of the Clark Fork River, Mount Sentinel, Pattee Canyon Recreation Area, Rattlesnake Valley, Hellgate Canyon and even Snowbowl Ski Area.

This fully remodeled studio loft has been designed with your comfort in mind while using the latest in technology and 'green' building materials and techniques. Keep warm with radiant tile flooring in the bathroom and sustainably harvested bamboo flooring throughout. All new appliances, concrete countertops, rich lighting, and integrated audio/video/internet components compliment the region's natural beauty.

About Ross Peterson

I grew up here and love all that Western Montana has to offer. I feel very lucky to be able to live and work in my hometown surrounded by my family and friends. In late 2007, I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase this unit in the Wilma Building and spent the next 6 months designing and renovating it. Every square inch of this space is updated and I love sharing it with people from all over the world. I invite you to come see what Missoula looks like from the top-floor of the 'The Wilma'....I think you'll find it as stunning as I do.

Why Ross Peterson chose Missoula

Missoula, Montana is my hometown and feel very connected to this community. My family has lived in Western Montana for 4 generations and every single one of us has a memory from this building. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to be involved in the restoration of one of our states oldest and most famous landmarks. Plus, I'm very excited about the opportunities this rental has created for meeting new people and sharing this place I love so much.

What makes this condo unique

Most everyone who stays here in the Wilma Condo comments on just how convenient and comfortable it is. A great amount of time and energy was spent designing this studio space to be very efficient and offer all of the amenities people are used to having at home. Many visitors park their cars (in the private lot) upon arrival and, because of the Wilma's central location, are then able to walk or bike around town for the majority of their stay. For the warmer months (May - September) there are several farmer's markets located near this location, including one that is just an elevator ride away. People love to grab a coffee and walk to the markets or catch a dinner/movie....all without ever leaving the vicinity of the building!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Wilma Condo was absolutely amazing. The first point to make is the wonderful location and its amazing views. You are literally in the middle of everything. Every person I talked to in Missoula thought it was awesome that I was staying at the Wilma and always reminded me what history is within it.

Ross is amazing and is very accommodating. From the chocolates on my pillow to being very flexible with "check-in" and "check-out" times, Ross made our stay the best it could be. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. You can walk to almost anywhere worth going. It is very comfortable and it is obvious that he has worked hard to make it everything and then some. Thank you!

Fabulous Down Town Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a weekend Missoula experience. The top Floor of the Historic Wilma building gave us unique views of the surrounding area. The unit is an amazing remodel. It felt clean, fresh and had tasteful use of space. I slept on the fold down couch and it was very comfortable. Scott was very friendly and accommodating. What I loved best was the incredible convenience of walking out the front door and into the fun bustle of Missoula's farmers market, shops, food and river access. I will recommend this place to anyone looking for fun Missoula home away from home. Thank you Scott!

Perfect place to check out Missoula

  • 5 of 5

If you are out visiting Missoula, I would absolutely recommend this apartment. It's a very well kept studio on the top floor of the Wilma within perfect walking distance to about anything you'll want to see or do. You'll get a parking pass when you check in, so if you drove in, you'll have that covered. We parked the truck and never moved it once in three days. The view of downtown and the east mountains is great as well. I will say, this place is best for singles or couples. My brother and I, however, booked for the apartment's location while vacationing in the area. We just flipped a coin for bed vs the couch, and there was plenty of room for the two of us regardless.

Bottom line: If you're a single or couple looking to explore Missoula, book this place. I can't imagine there is a better place and location in town.

Perfect location, top notch apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Although a studio apartment, we stayed there with our two small children, and it was perfect. Carousel, dragon hall playground, insect museum, currents water park, children's museum, and tons of restaurants are within a block or two. You really can't beat the location.

Well appointed with a great view

  • 5 of 5

It was a comfortable setting on the 8th floor. We were there when it was a bit warm and they had the cooling system up and running prior to our arrival. Our view of Downtown Missoula was very nice. Being so close to everything is a plus. We used the location to hike the M, hit the markets and still have time to attend a graduation. Didn't need to use the car. It's always a pleasure to stay in the Wilma and this is one of our favorites!

The Wilma is located just 3 blocks from a multitude of activities in Missoula. MOBASH skatepark, a free, outdoor, lighted, concrete skatepark is just 3 blocks away and is open 7 days a week. This, as well as an indoor aquatic center (complete with waterslides and a 'lazy river'), the fastest hand-built Carousel in the Northwest, a children's play structure/park and freestyle kayaking 'wave' are all just moments from your front door.
