Cozy Victorian in the Hip Strip area of Missoula

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,230 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Located walking distance from downtown and UM, this Victorian cottage is close to all that is happening in Missoula. Just around the corner is the 'hip strip' with coffee, restaurants, brewery, bakeries, ice cream and fun shops. Relax on the front porch and enjoy the picket-fenced yard circled by abundant flowerbeds. Step inside to see original wood floors, doors and trim. Loving care has restored and updated this wonderful house. The bedroom on the main floor has a double bed while upstairs is the bathroom and two dormer bedrooms with single beds. The well-appointed petite kitchen will handle your cooking needs, only lacking the convenience of a dishwasher. The fragile nature of the home does not allow smoking or pets.

About Bobbi Chenoweth

Originally from back east, Colorado was our home until our children grew up and moved away. Having retired from teaching and land management we moved to Missoula in 2008 to be closer to our daughter and her family.

Bobbi Chenoweth purchased this house in 2008

Why Bobbi Chenoweth chose Riverfront

We were very happy to find a place right in the heart of old Missoula. Our property has 2 homes, one we used for visiting friends an relatives, which gave us the idea of inviting more folks to enjoy all that we find intriguing about Missoula.

What makes this house unique

Missoula is a wonderful and unique small town with so much activity. Walking from the house is easy and the town is bike-friendly. Don't miss the rest of Montana.

An outstanding rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that I have rented the 5th Street Cottage. I will continue to do so, as I have a daughter in Missoula. The location is ideal, the house is the perfect size, and the only thing that would make it more than 100% would be a bathroom on the ground level. That is certainly not a deal breaker, however. The Chenoweths are the ideal "landlords". They care deeply for the property, and it shows in every respect. They are also lovely to have discussions with about various topics such as plantings, flowers, and travel in France. I highly recommend this property. Carolyn Miller, Austin, TX

A very comfortable house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Bobbi's house for our family members who were visiting us in late June. This was the 2nd time we worked with Bobbi and both times were wonderful experiences - Bobbi was very responsive to our emails and she kept the house very clean! The house is within walking distance to downtown Missoula and some great local businesses, which include an ice cream shop, a grocery store, a micro brewery and a bakery which are all beloved Missoulian institutions.

The only thing to take note of for people who are coming in the height of summer, and who absolutely need ACs - the house doesn't have ACs but our family members were comfortable both times, as they followed Bobbi's suggestion of closing the drapes during the hottest times of the day, and opening all the windows and doors when it cooled down later in the day.

All in all, a wonderful vacation rental!

Great vacation address

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't be more peaceful and homey. Owners keep it immaculate and the flowers planted are something to see. Everything you need in the home and then some, close to downtown Missoula and attractions. Bobbi and Hugh couldn't be nicer or more welcoming!

Felt just like home

  • 5 of 5

For our purposes -- an extended family gathering in Missoula -- this house was perfect. Four adults stayed here, enjoyed the living area and the gorgeous well-maintained garden. Easy walks to everything we needed. Efficient, hospitable and friendly owners. Plenty of space in the front room to do yoga! Interesting paintings, too.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home served as a meeting place for a little family gathering with 3 adults and one toddler. The photos do not do this property justice!

It is spacious, comfortable, and neat as a pin. The backyard and front porch offer additional sweet space to enjoy.

For a family of cooks the kitchen had the best appointed kitchen of any rental we have ever stayed in. Nice cookware, dishes, cutlery and a cupboard full of very useful staples. The gas grill got a workout as well.

What a great location as well, easy walk to parks, grocer, downtown and university.

Visiting Missoula after being away many years and staying in this charming home made me wonder why I ever left this amazing place?!

Thanks to the owners for making this stay very memorable and special!

p.s. Thanks for the high chair and pack and play too!
