Property description

The Butler Creek Lodge is located only five miles west of the Missoula airport on a splendid 4 acre property secluded in the woods. Four bedrooms comfortably appointed with top quality beds, dressers, and private baths. A loft area with couches , TV, queen size bed and futon. A large dining room and kitchen area. A great room with couches and chairs on the main level leading out to the deck area. Internet access, lan line phone and direct TV. A private 2 bedroom suite apartment across from the lodge with an entrance creek side is available for additional guests. Inquire about terms and availability if you need additional space apart from the main house. We call this area the Butler Creek suite.
Outside, Missoula Valley's inspiring scenery and local wildlife can be enjoyed from our deck areas or creek side on our secluded grounds. Tranquil and magnificent!
Located so close to Missoula, you'll find many nearby opportunities for dining, live entertainment, great shopping, theatres and recreation. Choose from fly fishing, golf, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, swimming, day trips to Glacier National Park or Flathead Lake, or numerous other national forests in the area.
Transportation to and from the Lodge is easy. We are close to the airport and Interstate 90, yet far enough away to provide you with peace and solitude. Ample private parking for six or more vehicles.
Make the Butler creek lodge your home away from home when you visit Montana. Plan a fishing trip with friends, bring the whole family on a skiing adventure, plan a family event, a wedding, special anniversary retreat or holiday gathering.
A great corporate meeting place as well.
The lodge can be rented with full services or no services at your request. For more information about the Lodge give us a call. We will be happy to answer any questions you have. The lodge is family owned and operated ensuring great attention to detail and pride in every aspect of your stay.

About: Dennis and Dorinda have retired after 30 years in the customer service industry. They live on the property in the caretaker's house. They are native New Yorkers transplanted to this tranquil and magical setting. They enjoy every aspect of life in Missoula. Having grown up in the Bronx and Westchester County in NY they are used to everything that NY City offers in the way of culture, shopping and lifestyle. They don't miss a thing except perhaps the white sandy beaches of long island. The magnificent rivers and many water ways satisfy their love of being near the water. Bird watching and communing with nature right at home on the lodge grounds provides a storybook retirement for them. Their family pets love the lifestyle as well. Luke and Leo are brothers from the same litter. They love to frolic in the creek and explore nature with Dennis and Dorinda. Gomez their 30 year old Macaw is lots of fun to be around. He is beautiful and dances for the guests. Gomez loves being outside on the deck and enjoys the surroundings. Lots of birds and wildlife for him to enjoy. He loves the guests at the lodge and will greet you with a happy 'Hello'

Why Missoula, MT, USA:
Missoula is a magical place. The scenery is breathtaking. Hip and modern while still giving you that old west feeling. On the way to the lodge you will see horses, cows, deer, wild turkey, large birds, mountains and more. We immediately fell in love with the historic city center. The allure of a University town really appealed to us. So much going on all of the time...all four seasons. The galleries, artist communities, farmers market and street festivals provide ongoing activities week after week. The parks, ski areas, golf courses, bike trails and forests provide enjoyable outdoor recreation year round. The change of seasons and endless outdoor activities make you feel like you are on vacation 12 months a year!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
You will feel secluded tucked away in the lodge off of a dirt road in the mountains among the pines and just fifteen minutes you can be in the heart of down town Missoula enjoying live entertainment, great food, wonderful shopping, art galleries, the University Of Montana and historic monuments all around.
