Property description

Surrounded by nature, this is a peaceful and relaxing location.
The main room is a 400 sq ft corner room in a large private Western style ranch home. A wonderfully sunny spot with it's own bath, we offer microwave, coffee service, and a fridge.
It is possible to accommodate another person for an additional $35/ night on a rollaway bed.

Guests have access to the large patio with a gas grill, and we have a peaceful barn conversation area with rustic sofas and a swing, Nature surrounds you daily with birds, deer, elk, and wild turkeys.
Although close to all that Missoula and the Bitterroot area have to offer, once you come through our gate, you can leave the world behind! We do not offer TV, but have many nearby activities such as hiking, rafting, fishing, and biking. The newly constructed Bitterroot bike trail offers over 50 miles of scenic biking along the valley, and we are just minutes from restaurants, events, and interesting places to explore and visit!

Please no smoking, guns, or pets on the property. We can accommodate horses for an extra fee, but arrangements must be made in advance.

Glad to accommodate dogs, cats, and horses. There is an extra $25/ night, per horse fee. Other matters by arrangement. Arrivals and departure times are individually arranged but I recognize that travel is unpredictable...often. If in doubt, please ask. I am most accommodating and reasonable. Damage deposit is 100% refundable... if no damage.
