'THE BUNGALOW' ON LILAC - THE NEIGHBORHOOD FAVORITE

Missoula Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This Bungalow kitchen is roomy and equipped for cooks and families! The Bungalow's neighborhood and recreation access is superior to all other vacation rentals in Missoula, quiet and friendly - the mountains come right down to the back yard. Everyone loves the upstairs loft, for play, computer work, naps and reading! ''What a wonderful place - Loved all your literature too! It inspired me to go to the used book store downtown and to stock up on our own Montana collection.' Jennifer Nunn, 2009

'What a fantastic place for families! Our two daughters (8 and 3) loved the place, the kitchen is well-equipped for family cooking, and Lane and Linda were fantastic hosts. The list of great family activities is endless: hiking, farmers markets, parks (Caras and Bonner were our favorites), restaurants, kid camps (M.O.L.A.!), festivals, minor league baseball, etc. We were at the Bungalow for three weeks in July and never lacked for fun things to do, all within walking/biking distance.' Derek Baggerly 2009

You will enjoy the patio in the garden, relax with a book and view. A gas Grille for outdoor cooking, and commuter bicycles with baskets are available for your around town use. You have a garage all to your use and may store bicycles and recreation equipment. Secure off-street parking - a summer brooke for floating and exploration, drifts by the front of the Bungalow. The neighborhood school playground is very close by.

The nearest walking trail is the loop trail through Greenough Park. There are both paved trails and a footpath through the woods. This is great spring bird watching habitat along the riparian corridor. Drive north on Rattlesnake drive to the trail-head for the Rattlesnake National Wilderness Area, about four miles upstream from here.

Our guests are University faculty and visiting professors, business travelers, experienced fly-fishermen, University students and their parents, musicians, film-makers and writers. The Rattlesnake neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful setting in the mountains and river corridors and trail systems. You will gain the energy and rest you seek with vacation travel here in Missoula. Please read our posted Guest's Comments. Guests are asked to leave their street shoes at the door when entering, please bring indoor footwear for your comfort, floors are slate, hardwood and marmoleum.

Mountain Line bus system with a downtown transfer station can be picked up near the corner just down the alley towards town. The University of Montana is just across the walking bridge over the river – just a short walk from here.

Our favorite local coffee house and restaurant is the Rattlesnake Gardens. Watch for the former nursery at 2501 Rattlesnake Drive on the left. They have a selection of food preparation and grocery items, wine and fresh bread and coffee drinks.

We have a solar-assisted on-demand gas-fired hot water heater. The evacuated tubes on the dormer roof collect heat from the sun, heat the glycol solution which transfers heat to the domestic water in the tank upstairs before passing through the Rinnai water heater. All water for the house is filtered through charcoal and then softened for all uses with a potassium salt – except the cold water faucet at the kitchen sink which is filtered but not softened. This water is excellent for ice cubes, drinks and coffee.

Abundant fresh organic produce, meats, fish and bread, and bountiful deli counter are found year-round at the Good Food Store. They also provide many gluten free foods. Along the way you’ll discover the Missoula Angler shop.

The southern boundary of the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness (RNRAW) is just four miles north of Missoula, Montana. The National Recreation Area (NRA) lies south and adjacent to the wilderness and receives heavy human use, but primarily in the South Zone, within about three miles of the main trailhead. Far fewer people venture into The Rattlesnake Wilderness which is in the more remote northern portion of the RNRAW. A road that is closed to public motorized use and that is used as a trail leaves the main trail head and goes into the National Recreation Area along Rattlesnake Creek along a cherry stem NRA corridor to within about three miles of a scenic Wilderness cluster of high alpine lakes. Near the NRA entrance at about 3,600 feet, the elevation rises to 8,620 feet on McLeod Peak and a picturesque mountain setting.

Linda and I live in the house next-door and do all of the property maintenance and gardening ourselves. We both have professional backgrounds, Linda works in the local hospital foundation office as a fund-raising officer and we love to attend all of the music recitals and public lectures at the University of Montana - just a 20-minute walk from our home. We are members of the Missoula Art Museum.

Lane Coulston purchased this bungalow in 2001

The Lower Rattlesnake neighborhood is walking and biking distance to restaurants, the University of Montana, Medical facilities, the vibrant downtown neighborhood, the City Library, and all of the walking-biking-hiking trail systems. The City bus-stop is a half-block from the door.

Everyone loves the feel of this neighborhood, the locals and the visitors.

Beautiful hideaway close to everything

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks at the Bungalow when our family gathered for a wedding in Missoula. We hosted dinner in the lush little garden for extended family several times. It was lovely to sit outside and grill some food and enjoy such a beautiful, private setting. The house is situated within easy walking distance to town and Greenough Park. The bungalow is very comfortable, nicely decorated, and the kitchen is well appointed. (We did lots of cooking!) Lane and Linda are the perfect hosts!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this rental. Beautiful, quaint, cozy and comfortable house in charming neighborhood. Immaculately maintained and beautifully appointed. Kind, gracious and helpful host who took me on a walking tour of the neighborhood so I could get a lay of the land. Also gave me other suggestions to make my stay in Missoula what I wanted it to be. House is in walking distance to hiking trails and bike paths. While I had a rental car you don't need one as bikes are part of rental and bus route into town is nearby.

Honestly, I feel lucky to have found this rental and give it 10 stars! Thank you Lane :)

Family Time in Missoula

  • 5 of 5
Arrived in Missoula later Sunday afternoon and was greeted by Lane. He was very kind and accompanied myself and my husband on a walk around the Rattlesnake neighborhood and creek trails (beautiful area) where we saw an osprey perched on top of a cottonwood. Our son, who lives in Missoula, joined us for the week. On Monday, we used the bikes provided by the bungalow and the three of us toured downtown Missoula, explored the multitude of shops, had coffee and then returned to grill out Lake Huron salmon for supper. So much to see and do downtown! I also shopped at The Good Food Store (very good for lunch) and Bob Ward's. The rest of the week was spent fly fishing on the Clark Fork and Bitterroot Rivers, visiting the hot springs at Quinn, playing Trivia at the Holiday Inn and a huge "Wisconsin style" fish fry at the end of the week with our son and his friends. Enjoyed meeting and feeding the "hot chicks" Freckles and Speckles.
Can't say enough about the "bungalow". It was very clean, comfortable and provided us with everything we needed to make our stay in Missoula superb! Looking forward to our next trip "out west" and would love to stay at the bungalow again.

Great cottage.

  • 5 of 5
Well stocked and conviently located. We have 2 young girls. They loved the loft. It was an easy walk to the park and there was also a nice playground just a few blocks away. We will definitely rent this home again on return visits to Missoula.

Perfect place to enjoy Missoula

  • 5 of 5
This was just a great experience. My spouse and I had planned to return to Missoula for an extended stay upon retirement (we had both gone to school there) The Bungalow on Lilac was nothing short of exceptional, immaculately maintained and thoughtfully furnished and provisioned for its guests.The owner provided great advise on activities and gave us produce from his garden. We plan on staying there again next year.
