Why Rae Grout chose Corvallis
Sage Cottage is on the property that was once part of a 100-year-old farm and still holds the peace and tranquility of a sanctuary. You won’t hear highway traffic but may hear elk beguiling in the early morning hours, coyotes howling, owls, pheasants, and songbirds. The adjacent field has Black Angus cattle in the winter and is hayed in the summer so sometimes you may hear cows mooing or tractors working the field. The 360-degree views are breathtaking. The cottage is located in the heart of the Bitterroot Valley close to Hamilton Montana, hiking/biking trails scenic driving and lots of rivers and mountains. The Bitterroot River has over 100 miles of Blue-Ribbon trout water, great for fly fishing. The night sky for stargazing is brilliant, Bill has a couple of telescopes set up for astrophotography from our backyard.

The Best Little Retreat
How can I summarize when there is so much to say. This place packs a punch! And I mean a good punch! You received well by both Rae and Bill. Two amazing people by the way. The house is the nicest cutest place to stay in with all the amenities I needed and then some. Rae makes all her own soap and cream products. Like walking into a boutique motel without the noice. I love the chickens that roamed around. The peacefulness of the area. The views were amazing. I cannot begin to express the gratitude and how much this place felt like staying in a retreat of some kind. I would come back should I be in the area in the future. I recommend anyone who loves the outdoors and peacefulness to visit this hidden gem!
The best cottage we have ever stayed at
Montana in August is great. Our stay at Bill and Rae's country cottage was what we had hoped for. Beautiful, quiet country home with scenic routes all around. It truely is a home away from home. The owners thought of everything you need and more. Questions we had were answered quickly and my husband and I enjoyed the knowledge we gained from Bill and Rae who are wonderful hosts. If you are looking for a quiet but relaxing beautiful country cottage in the Bitterroot Valley, this is your place to go. There is lots of things to do close by. We especially enjoyed the scenic drive into the Bitterroot National Forest and nearby towns. We hope to return again, maybe for our 50th wedding anniversary because we enjoyed this property so much. Watching the stars at night while sitting in the hot tub was a bonus too. Thank you Bill and Rae for a great vacation in your VRBO cottage.
