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 luxury studio condo has been completely remodeled and thoughtfully designed for a very slick, contemporary, but homey 'Industrial feel' and is ideal for out of town visitors looking to explore Missoula and the surrounding area. Completely new, natural and clean interior materials and a big egress window bring lots of natural light to the space. New appliances and other new amenities are complimented by the original sheet rock and brick walls reminding visitors of the old times. The condo comes with a spacious private bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with solid beech wood counter tops, and a comfortable queen-sized bed. The condo compliments also high speed wireless internet, HD flat screen TV and three person couch, which folds down into a two person sofa sleeper.

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 studio in 2013

Why Jenni Rohrbach chose Riverfront

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 studio 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). The Babs also offers a rec room with pool table and a garden area with a Viking grill available for guest use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful! Thank you for the perfect home base during our Missoula stay. Great location for walking everywhere, back and forth from the Western Agriculture Society Conference at the UM and to all kinds of delicious food+fun shopping. We've falling in love with Missoula and only regret that we don't have more time here to explore. Thanks!

Great location!!!

  • 4 of 5

It was a wonderful location and offered everything I needed for a week while working. I also loved walking the river path every night after work. The hair on the shower curtain and in the shower did put me off a bit. Also I’m not sure the floors are washed between guests??? But otherwise everything else was good!! And the owner was very nice and accommodating!!

Beautiful centrally located studio. Walking distance the the U and downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We loved getting to stay in Babs apartments. This was the perfect central location for us and we loved getting to have our pup join us. It was nice to have access to a washer and dryer while visiting as well. Jenni was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. The upstairs neighbors were a little noisy early in the morning but other than that it was fabulous. We will definitely keep this place in mind for future Missoula trips.
