Property description

Enjoy authentic Montana hospitality at the Cottage in the City. Blocks from the university, stocked with local beer, you'll live like a local but enjoy the amenities of a hotel. The property features a warm atmosphere nestled on the edge of the University District, a leafy neighborhood of century-old bungalows and views of the nearby mountains and river.

In the summertime (and warmer months) we'll provide two bicycles for your stay at the Cottage. They'll come with locks and lights, and we encourage you to give them a try. Missoula is a great town to bike around in- it's only a 4 minute ride downtown!

Completely renovated, the Cottage features a full kitchen, breakfast nook, living room, marble bathroom, two bedrooms, and washer/dryer. There is also a lighted flagstone patio and fully fenced and landscaped yard. This is a cozy cottage built eighty years ago, but with all the latest amenities. Heat is provided by a new in-floor system complemented by an automated gas fireplace, conveniently keeping the Cottage toasty warm while imparting the ambiance of an old-fashioned fireplace.

Guests can enjoy all the amenities of the university due to its location just down the street while also taking advantage of the dining, drinks, and attractions of Missoula. Less than 100 yards away is Caffe Dolce, famous among students and locals alike for its good breakfasts, coffee, and great lunch and dinner options.

The M trail is on the other side of campus and offers the quintessential local hike. Nights with nice weather bring Missoulians in droves to watch the sunsets. The Rattlesnake Wilderness trailhead is a 10 minute drive away, offering access to hundreds of miles of trails. The banks of the Clark Fork River are a few blocks north of the cabin. We'd be happy to loan out some innertubes to float the river. On warm days it'll seem like half the town is doing it. You should too.

The owner lives a few blocks away and is on hand whenever needs arise, and would be more than happy to provide any help guests require, along with restaurant, trail, or fishing recommendations and directions.

You won't find anywhere in Missoula with our level of hospitality, comfort, and proximity to the university and downtown. The Cottage would be perfect for a long weekend, travelers stopping by Missoula, vacationers, or those needing longer-term housing options.
