About Patricia Cloud

Our four generations have combined creative forces to offer this great little vacation gem. We have been blessed to live in beautiful Montana for 20 + years and continue to pinch ourselves daily. We come originally from the east & west coasts and spent 20 years in Alaska before finding our home in the Bitterroot Valley.

We have 3 daughters, our son-in-law, and our beautiful grandchildren living in Missoula.

We live in our country home 35 miles southeast of Missoula outside of Stevensville, MT.

Thank you for visiting our site.

Patricia Cloud purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Patricia Cloud chose Missoula

Spending time with our children & grandchildren is high priority for us, besides finding Missoula a beautiful, active & compelling community. There is something to do every night if you want to go out and about, or stay at home and enjoy the cool summer & cozy winter nights. Missoula may be small by city standards but it has a huge heart that expresses itself in community events, Saturday & Sunday Farmers Markets, art, music, theatre, dance, Griz football, Osprey baseball, great food & beverages all abound.

What makes this apartment unique

Attention to detail, fine craftsmanship & location, helped us fall in love with the Catlin Gem Apartment. Inside is a well appointed and cozy space filled with comfortable and interesting furnishings. Step outside and within minutes you are either in the heart of the bustling downtown area, hiking up Mount Jumbo, floating or fishing the Clark Fork, Bitterroot and Blackfoot Rivers or exploring, hiking or downhill/cross country skiing the Rattlesnake wilderness, Snowbowl, Lost Trail, Pattee Canyon or Blue Mountain. Entertainment, relaxation and exploration are only bounded by the imagination!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is easy to find, is immaculately clean, has a well-equipped kitchen, and is an easy walk to the wonderful Good Food Store. The area that it is in is a bit busy but convenient to downtown Missoula. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Also, the owner is kind.

Absolutely Adorable!

  • 4 of 5

Extremely clean, well-appointed and perfectly decorated. It's pretty tiny, but when you are on vacation, this is all you need. We are mt. bikers, so the washer and dryer was a HUGE plus. Everything was new, clean and very tasteful. Patricia has an amazing eye, the deocor was fantastic! To be honest, I was shocked that they had put so much effort and $$ into a little rental.

The only downside, if you are looking for a "Montana Experience" this is not it. It's across the street from a trailer park and near a busy road. We had been to Missoula before and just needed a place to sleep, so it worked out perfectly for us.

I would have given it 5~stars if it weren't for the surrounding area. Then again, it would not have been this price if it was on a river at the base of a mountain, now would it? Once inside, the apartment is quiet and it felt safe there.

Patricia let me bring my well-behaved dog, which was also a plus. There isn't cable TV, but WIFI is included, so we watched the Seahawks game via my iPad.

If you are looking for reasonably priced and a comfy bed, this is a little gem.

Owner's Response: Our location area has been redeveloped and gentrified since this review. The trailer park that was across the street has been replaced with a business and a new apartment complex. The street now has sidewalks and has been landscaped, summer 2015

Property is impeccable!

I had a great time! The apartment is cozy, quiet, and the Good Food Store is right across the street. It was a perfect place for my first visit to Missoula in nine years. I definitely plan to stay here again.
