About the property

Sleeps 1- 2 people

Whether it is adventure or romance your stay at the 'Hideaway' will refresh your soul. Located on the Missouri River, this quiet vacation rental, with over 300 ft. of river frontage, is the perfect location for that special getaway.

After preparing a romantic dinner in your kitchen you can relax on your private deck with your loved one while you enjoy the wild life, summer sunset or the moon glistening on the river. What could be sweeter than a blazing fire in the fire gazing and eating S'mores. If you prefer to stay indoors you can enjoy sitting or reading by your cozy fireplace.

End your evening with a salt bath in the jetted tub and then climb into a very luxurious king size bed with your choice of down or synthetic pillows for a restful night sleep. The next morning while you are getting ready for your day you can watch the sun come up over the mountains.

The Missouri River is abundant with brown and rainbow trout. You may also catch some walleye.

The fall hunting is among the best and the peaceful winter scenery makes ice-fishing and skiing a very enjoyable experience .

About Ellie

Bill & I built this very special carriage house vacation rental with YOU in mind. Based on over 37years in the travel industry we created, what we believe, to be a very relaxing, private, serene, comfortable and tranquil getaway. You will love it here!

Ellie purchased this studio in 2010

Why Ellie chose Toston

Ellie was born and raised in Montana and her grandfather, Shadan Lahood, was instrumental to her living on the river. When she was a small girl she would take (what seemed like forever) the very long drive from Helena to LaHood Park...about 60 miles and has now created what Ellie calls a modern day LaHood Park on the Missouri river. AKA : Hideaway Montana

What makes this studio unique

Our carriage house caters to a romantic getaway. Most of our guests visit us for a special occasion eg: Anniversaries, engagements, birthdays, honeymooners and couples that are just reconnecting. We are rural and away from it all on the Missouri river. We welcome small weddings, vow renewals and elopements.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our stay at your "hideaway!" You've done a great job making it comfortable and inviting. Our daughter gave us a couple nights stay here for our Christmas gift. We got to spend New Year's Eve here in 2016. Thank you for your hospitality. We also enjoyed the views and photographing the area.

Amazing time at the Hideaway! - A Must stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband is a Pastor and we have learned how important it is to get away and refresh to help have the energy and ability to pour into others. Staying at The Hideaway provided just the rest and relaxation that we needed. The Hidaway is adorable, layed out well, and decorated in a soothing and relaxing manner. The special touches our hosts provided (great soaps, fresh flowers, teas, etc...) blessed us tremendously and showed they truly care about their guests having a blessed and special time. The location is private and right on the river providing a beautiful view. We enjoyed just sitting and talking or reading on the loveseat that looked out to the mountains and river. It is so quiet (besides the trains in the distance which we loved) and the perfect place to clear your head from all the noise of the city and noise of life in general. It's a great place to quiet your heart, remove distractions, and hear from God.

The bed is AWESOME. I have never been somewhere where I wasn't looking forward to returning to my own bed.

If you are waivering on whether or not to stay at The it! It will be such a blessing. Words can't describe it...

We are very picking guests... and this vacation rental was gorgeous and the view was even better! We feared it would be a long drive into Bozeman and Townsend but it only took about 35-40 minutes to get to Bozeman and 15 to get to Townsend. It was relaxing under the brilliant stars with a fire pit burning and during our stay we heard and saw a broad range of wildlife and birds... the flowing river right out front was so soothing. We highly recommend this for a break from everything... especially for a couple.

The hosts we so welcoming... they went above and beyond as compared to other rentals we have stayed in. This is a memorable spot in this beautiful state.

The photos of this rental are exactly what you find - and then you experience "more"... every detail is well thought out for style and comfort! From the welcome basket goodies, water and candy at bedside, and relaxing/restful color scheme and decor. The property is gorgeous, inside and out pristine and very well-maintained. Owners, Ellie and Bill, are gracious and friendly. This week was the perfect break needed to sit on the deck enjoying the river and views - we could not have asked for more!

Lovely property on the Missouri River - beautiful morning sun and evening sunsets

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nicely appointed studio apartment. It is really new construction and all of the appliances are modern. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the gardening is very attractive. Ellie & Bill are extremely nice owners that will go the extra mile to help - Ellie did some great research for us regarding local fishing guides! We really enjoyed our extended stay at The Hideaway.

The firepit area is private and there is a really sweet deck located halfway down to the river that is wonderful for star gazing on a clear night.

Toston is not really a going concern these days, but Townsend and Three Forks are within a 20 minute drive. Three Forks is quite nice and Townsend also has all the services that you might need.

One caution, we were a bit surprised to find that this "Carriage House" is actually attached to the owner's home. They have done a good job of making it feel private but it was a bit of a surprise when we first arrived.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking a few minutes to write a review. It was great meeting both of you! It seems you had a wonderful stay at the "hideaway" and Montana! I enjoyed the research on the fishing guides and hope our future guests will benefit from some of the local guides. As noted on the Homeaway website: We do not share a common wall with the "Hideaway" as the garage separates our private residence from the carriage house to provide our guests with a private retreat.

We are located on the Missouri River between Bozeman and Helena in a very quiet,serene & rural location. Bozeman Gallatin airport is located just 43 miles away, Helena regional airport is 45 miles and Butte is only 64 miles.

Other Activities: We spent last summer exploring Yellowstone National Park, touring the Lewis & Clark caverns, floating/fishing the river, riding the tour train in Helena, MT, shopping in Ennis, MT, hiking the mountains in the area and soaking in some of the best hot springs around. And our favorite was trying out some of the best little unknown restaurants within an easy drive of the Hideaway. Some of our favorite's are: Pompey's Grill, Sacajawea Bar, Willow Creek Restaurant and LaHood Park Cafe.

Golf: Our nearest Golf course is just 20 miles away in a quaint Montana town of Three Forks.

Ski: We prefer skiing the local mountains such as the Great Divide~Helena, Showdown~Niehart, Discovery~Anaconda and Bridger~Bozeman. If you prefer a more resort style skiing experience Big Sky Ski & Resort is just an hour and half drive!
