About the Property

Premium, 1 bedroom condominium, 630 sqf.

Downtown Bab's Condo, Vacation Rental in Missoula, everything is right here!

Kindly note that in the Bab's we also have a completely remodeled studio in the Bab's, vrbo listing # 508389 and another upscale 1 bedroom condo, vrbo listing # #577475.

This premium 630 sq ft condo is located in the historic and elegantly restored Bab's building. The charismatic Babs, built in 1905, will take you to the soul of the Missoula community in a heartbeat. Centrally located on Missoula's vibrant Hip Strip, the Babs is surrounded by the city's best restaurants and bakeries. Everything is just a walk away.

The condo has been thoughtfully designed for a homey 'Victorian/Queen Ann feel' and is ideal for out of town visitors looking to explore Missoula and the surrounding area. Brand new, functional and open kitchen, high ceilings and new windows bring lots of natural light to the space. Updated bathroom, appliances and other amenities are complimented by the original rough oak floors, vintage arches and exposed brick walls reminding visitors of the old times. The master bedroom comes with a private bathroom, air conditioner, a king-sized Tempur-Pedic mattress and solid wood hickory bed frame and nightstands. The living room with two couches is made for relaxation. Search the web using high speed wireless internet, watch a movie or play Wii on the HD flat screen TV, or read a book in the rocking chair.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Missoula, as for many people, is a special place to us. It is where we met as students in college and where we always knew we wanted to call home. After school, however, life and work took us to Asia, Finland and New York City, before we could both settle back in Missoula together and start our family. Now with our daughter Maija, we are pleased to share all that the Missoula community has to offer with visitors at our Bab’s condo.

Why the Owner Chose Riverfront, Missoula, MT, USA:
Jenni first came to Missoula as an exchange student attending grad school from Finland. She immediately fell in love with the surrounding landscape and community but most of all Kurt. Kurt’s family is from the area and always knew the Montana lifestyle was the only one for him. They both enjoy the outdoor and cultural opportunities Missoula has to offer including skiing up Pattee Canyon, taking their daughter Maija to Missoula’s award winning Children’s Theater or enjoying Missoula’s restaurants, breweries and distilleries. They feel fortunate to call Missoula home and are pleased to share their love of the area with each of their guests.
