About Jenni Rohrbach

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.

Jenni Rohrbach purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jenni Rohrbach chose Missoula

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.

What makes this apartment unique

The Babs is one of Missoula’s premiere historic buildings. Located near several of Missoula’s gems including downtown, the Kim Williams trail and the University, visitors can easily walk or bike to restaurants, shopping, bars, and hiking trails. Not to mention the best ice cream (The Big Dipper), pastries (Le Petite) and beer (Kettle House) are just around the corner. In addition, the condo itself is fully stocked with the comforts of home including a full-kitchen, children’s amenities (pack n’ play, high chair, books and toys as well as eating utensils) and king-size temperpedic bed. The Babs also offers a rec room with pool table and a garden area with a Viking grill available for guest use.

Lovely, roomy accomdations

  • 5 of 5

Great location on corner of Higgins St where you will find many great restaurants, shops, parks all within walking distance. There is a very nice coffee/bakery cafe right across the street. The condo had all the cooking utensils you need (other than a baking sheet); there are no cooking supplies ie, condiments, seasonings, oils, etc. so bring your own. This first floor corner condo brought in lots of light. The owner, Jenni, lives on the premises and we met her during our stay. Jenni was friendly, attentive and responsive. Great value for the money and we would differently stay there again.

Great Location But Loud

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we were satisfied with our stay. The apartment is comfortable and the proximity to good food, the downtown, and the university is excellent. However, we were woken up every morning by a loud rattling (pipes in the old building) that went on for several minutes around 6 am. If you want to sleep in, this is not the place for you. That was the only issue, though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving us this review. I must say that I do feel sorry that I wasn't informed about the "noise at 6am". A simple phone call would have been appreciated, and as I'm only 5 minutes away, it would have been an easy fix. Nobody needs to wake up that early, especially during a vacation. It's this time of the year, when temperatures change and our boiler needs adjusting. But I'm glad we got your feedback, and so we are back to preferred temperatures and hours. But to inform our future guests, yes, Bab's is an older building and our steam heat system can make noise at times. And how much noise, is a very personal experience, that I cannot put it into a rating. From about May to September, the heat if completely off, as the weather gets warmer, and as we also have electric heat inside our condos. This condo for instance, has an efficient and quiet, wall mount electric heater, with a thermostat you can easily adjust yourself.

The Babs

My stay at the Babs was great. The apartment was well equipped and cozy. Going across the street every morning for good coffee and great bread was a definite plus.

Nice weekend with the family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here with my family for the weekend. The apartment had everything one would need and was SO CLOSE to downtown and the University. My husband was especially excited at close proximity to his favorite brewery, Kettlehouse!

Great communication with owner. Easy to cook in kitchen, mattress was so comfy, nice to have dining and roomy living space. Natural light from all the windows helped with the gloomy weather.
