Property description

Enjoy authentic Montana hospitality at the Cabin in the City. Steps from the university, stocked with local beer, you'll live like a local but enjoy the amenities of a hotel. The property comes with two off-street parking spaces (a rarity this close to campus) and a warm atmosphere nestled in the University District, a leafy neighborhood of century-old bungalows, and views of the nearby mountains and river.

Completely renovated, the cabin features a full kitchen, living room, and bedroom. The living room couch pulls out to make a bed sleeping two, and the queen-sized bed in the bedroom also accommodates two. This is a cozy property reminscent of a small cabin in the woods, and the cedar panelling and warm atmosphere reflect that. Heat is provided by an electronic, automated gas stove, conveniently keeping the cabin toasty warm while imparting the ambiance of an old-fashioned woodstove. Air conditioning is also provided upon request in the summer.

Guests can enjoy all the amenities of the university due to its location just down the street while also taking advantage of the dining, drinks, and attractions of the University District and Missoula. Less than 100 yards away is Food for Thought, famous among students and locals alike for its good breakfasts, coffee, sandwiches, and takeout options. Two blocks south is Buttercup Cafe and Market, featuring locally-sourced breakfasts and lunches, an espresso bar, and a selection of beer, wine, and prepared meals for takeout.

The M trail is on the other side of campus and offers the quintessential local hike. Nights with nice weather bring Missoulians in droves to watch the sunsets. The Rattlesnake Wilderness trailhead is a 10 minute drive away, offering access to hundreds of miles of trails. The banks of the Clark Fork River are a few blocks north of the cabin. We'd be happy to loan out some innertubes to float the river. On warm days it'll seem like half the town is doing it. You should too.

The owner lives in the adjacent property and is on hand whenever needs arise, and would be more than happy to provide any help guests require, along with restaurant, trail, or fishing recommendations and directions.

You won't find anywhere in Missoula with our level of hospitality, comfort, and proximity to the university. The cabin would be perfect for a long weekend, travelers stopping by Missoula, vacationers, or those needing longer-term housing options.
