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 2014

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.

                                                              A great location and accommodation. Well appointed, comfortable, clean, and everything you could need in Missoula. The location is great for exploring Missoula itself but also serving as a great location in which to make day trips. Thank you for a great stay!

                                                              Beautiful condo in great location.

                                                              We have stayed in another one of their condos in this building and would again. Very spacious and clean. It has a bit of a funky heating system but the owners were very responsive to get it functioning properly.

                                                              Nice Place to Stay.. Great Location & Cool Historic Vibe

                                                              Kelsey C.

                                                              The place was clean, inviting, and even the pull out couch was very comfortable. Host was really kind and prompt with answering emails. There was a noise banging on the heating system and a whistling in the gas line early in the AM so I would say wear earplugs in the morning but other than that, it was really great!

                                                              Perfect home base for exploring Missoula

                                                              Stayed here 4 nights for a wedding. The Bab's has a classic, historic vibe in the midst of downtown Missoula with all the modern conveniences. This condo unit is spacious and clean. A Roku TV in the bedroom is a nice touch for being able to watch Netflix or other personal streaming accounts. The condo has at least 10 restaurants/eateries within a block radius and is the ideal home base for exploring downtown Missoula by foot. We did not have any issue finding street parking in front of the building during our stay. We'll definitely stay here again if we are ever in Missoula!
