Property description

This colorful Rocky Mountain abode, cozy with lots of character, is the longtime home of a local artisan. The rooms are tastefully eclectic and Feng-Shui-ed to near perfection, making it an easy place to 'just be'. . . to unwind, and marvel at the awe-inspiring canyon vista.

Come to explore, reflect, rejuvenate, reboot. Unwind in the backyard’s sweetly adorned wood-fired sauna. Pick a good book from the house library, or stay a while and write your own!

The Red House’s three bedrooms are outfitted with two queen beds, and one single. The extra ‘Room with a View’—a curtained sleeping area off the living room—has a full-sized bed, which makes this getaway perfect for four singles, three couples, or a small family. Its 1500-square-feet is all on one level with hardwood floors throughout and the many comforts of home: a fully equipped country kitchen, dining room with bay window, full-sized washer and dryer, wireless internet, central heating, and a glass-windowed woodstove in the living room. Purposefully sans TV.

You’ll be located in the heart of the famously beautiful Bitterroot Valley, just minutes from Hamilton, a lively western town with a Performing Arts Center and everything from yoga to rodeos. This area is the gateway to the largest wilderness in the contiguous U.S. and boasts spectacular hiking trails, fishing/floating on the renown Bitterroot River, great downhill and cross-country skiing, and miles of bicycle paths.

*The Red House’s owner, Mary Lakes, is locally known as “the” go-to massage therapist, specializing in Asian Style physical medicine. When she’s not traveling, she maintains an active practice in Hamilton. Be sure to book a session to begin your stay here. Appointments: (406) 363-6213.

Manager info

About: My name is Amy Sage. I opened the first vacation rental home in the Bitterroot Valley with my SweetSage Guest House 15 years ago. As a stay at home mom with three children I have gradually expanded my property management business to include a variety of vacation rentals while still being able to mostly be home with my family. I pride myself in providing private, clean, affordable accommodations with all of the comforts of home.

Why Hamilton, MT, USA:
This home is close to town, convenient to services yet secluded with awe inspiring mountain vistas.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close proximity to the Bitterroot River provides a sanctuary for songbirds and wildlife commonly seen through the picture windows. Steps away from the largest intact wilderness in the lower forty-eight. Minutes to the river or hiking, to a hot Latte or cold Microbrew.
