About the property

Best location to walk to downtown, the river and the University.

Fully renovated and redesigned terrace-style townhouse in a six-unit brick row, originally built by early-20th-century Missoula developer T.A. Price and renovated spring of 2014 by Deluca Inc. is now available for short-term lease. The 1,400-square-foot structure’s architecture and charm have been preserved with the addition of energy-efficient systems, modern finishes and an open floor plan.

Located only a short walk away from the heart of Missoula:

--2 blocks to the 'Hip strip' with shopping, bakeries, breweries, restaurants, and the famous Big Dipper ice cream shop

--3 blocks to the popular Clark Fork River Trail

--5 blocks to University of Montana’s Grizzly Stadium and Adams Event Center

--5 blocks to downtown

Upon arrival, guests can park their cars and spend the days walking and biking around Missoula. Included are two parking spaces—one for the garage and another outdoor. Two cruiser bikes are available to guests for riding around town and along nearby trails.

The unit has three bedrooms with two king beds and two extra long twin beds and one and a half bathrooms to comfortably accommodate six guests.

The large existing bathroom upstairs has been remodeled, and a new powder room was added to the main level. A redesigned kitchen offers new appliances including a gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave. New cabinets and quartz counter tops offer ample storage and preparation space for cooking and entertaining. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the tools and serving items needed to host a Thanksgiving dinner for eight.

To open up the public quarters, the owners repurposed salvaged sinker beams from a Blackfoot River bridge, which collapsed decades ago but was recently recovered, to reframe the new opening. Original brick walls have been exposed. A modern leather sofa and chairs now occupy the living space, which has been decorated with heirloom antiques and original artwork. Foyer features an antique oak telephone booth equipped with a functioning rotary phone that offers guests complimentary calling anywhere in North America. WiFi and cable are also included with stay.

The exterior features covered front and back porches with a common lawn. A grill is provided for guest use.

Distinctive design with an unbeatable location make for a convenient, relaxing, and a truly authentic Missoulian experience.

Beautifully decorated, very comfortable place to stay while visiting our son at the U of M.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the decor, the comfort and location of this townhome! A few blocks from everything we needed made this a definite repeat stay. Our kids (14 and 21) loved the payphone. We all loved the historical photos throughout the house. The beds were very comfy too!

Holly was very accommodating and responsive. I believe hotels are a thing of the past for us here in Missoula! 😃?

A pure delight!

This is a true gem of a vacation rental. Not only is the location terrific, the interiors of this home are top shelf. There's a full-scale telephone booth with a telephone that actually works! From the amply equipped and modern kitchen to the high thread count bedding, these wonderful owners have thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. There's even a garage to house your vehicle (or bikes in our case). If you stay here, take the time to check out the vintage photos on the walls of this history-rich area. I could easily live in this "row house" home.

Fantastic!!! If you want to be close to town and the university, this town house is it!! Great location for each and it's just a couple of blocks from the Big Dipper! The area is wonderful and convenient parking behind the building. Kitchen was wonderful and is right beside the living area so you don't feel isolated from everyone when you are cooking. Plenty of space! The full bathroom upstairs is very big and accommodating to anyone staying there. The beds were also comfortable! Can't wait to stay here again!
