About the property

Get away from it all...

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 soaking tub and shower with a bay window. 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! TV room, too! 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. Pets... maybe. Please discuss. We can accommodate horses for an extra fee, but arrangements must be made in advance.

FYI- so far as we know, there are no other acomodations until you get to Hamilton.

This was a beautiful place to stay - very peaceful setting. Elliot was very responsive to anything we needed and offered some great suggestions for places to go and things to do. The room was very comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in a very interesting clean and cozy home away. The only problem was we would have to share the kitchen with the owner for meals so we had to eat meals away Or feel like we were in their space The owner was very nice and accommodating We would stay again

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

This property proved to be a real find. The accommodations were comfortable, and we had the run of the house and property, including kitchen privileges. Location was convenient to the beautiful Bitter Root Valley, as well as Missoula, and the setting is quite nice. The only caveat would be that you need to be an animal lover, as there are two dogs and two cats in residence, all very friendly. We enjoyed their company, as well as the folks who took care of them, and the owner's tenant. We would certainly consider returning.

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.
