Outside activities on the property include a firepit (for storytelling and s'mores), horseshoes and a newly added volleyball court as well as swimming, fly fishing and rafting.

The main level features an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen and island, a timberframe post and beam throughout with a rock fireplace, and a master suite with all amenities, including a gas fireplace, TV, artist easel, master bath, walk in shower and gas fireplace. Lots of outdoor decking and living areas overlooking the river, including a hot tub and covered porch/barbecue deck. Included is a river view apartment over the garage.

A magical place in both summer and winter, this home is a stones throw to Missoula.

Wildlife viewing opportunities include year-round ducks, geese, eagles, fox, deer and elk, and the occasional beaver trudging upstream. For the fishing enthusiast in the family, there are opportunities to take Rainbows, Browns, and cutthroat trout, and well as a place to put in or take out a raft.

LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
Great country setting with an amazing country cabin feel through and through. Met the owner and had a great time talking with him a bit about the house and surrounding area. It was really nice renting from such a laid back easy going guy. Kids had a blast as well as the adults. Would go back and do it again in a heartbeat.

NOT PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED OR MAINTAINED

  • 3 of 5
After we rented the property through the VRBO website, we had a difficult time getting in touch with the owner for follow-up questions and specific arrival details. All emails went unanswered - it was impossible to communicate with this owner (Al) via email. It was sometimes not possible to leave phone messages, as his mailbox would be full. Phone messages, once we were able to leave one, were eventually returned.

The outdoor jacuzzi was broken the entire length of our stay. The owner did not warn us in advance that the jacuzzi was out. When the first members of our family group arrived and saw it wasn't working, Al was called. He came out to look at it and basically just shrugged his shoulders and walked away. We heard nothing further from him while we were staying there.

The jetted tub in the master bathroom was also broken. The kitchen and pantry were full of old expired food. We cleaned them out. Gross.

Although we live in NYC, my husband is from Missoula and his extended family still live in the region. This was a gathering of his family. So, to anyone reading this who thinks we probably just had unreasonable Big City expectations, please note that the entire family shared our frustrations.

The house has a lovely back yard along the river, with nice seating on the deck and around the fire pit. This lived up to expectations, thank goodness. The home is large and can easily accommodate over a dozen people. It's not luxurious (nor did we expect it to be) but it's comfortable. Big hunting lodge theme, though, with taxidermy animals, etc.

The home is not in a rural setting; it's one of 3-4 big new lodge style homes built along the river, but it's surrounded by an older subdivision. We didn't care, but just an FYI in case a potential renter thinks the home is more isolated.

Since Al doesn't seem to have the time to devote to managing and maintaining his property, he should really hire someone to do it for him. As it stands now, I would not recommend renting this home.

PEACE AND SERENITY PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a special place to stay! I had high expectations when I booked the Fly Fisherman's Lodge and all expectations were met. A short 25 minute drive south from the Missoula airport, the small town of Lolo is a beautiful drive along the river and mountainside. You might get lucky to see a field full of buffalo. Reserve St. is the main shopping street between the airport and Lolo and has every kind of store you could imagine, along with the sometimes heavy traffic. Rosauers grocery on Reserve St was excellent. Once in Lolo I discovered a local grocery store corner Tyler Way, it has everything (ice, beer, wine, groceries) so no need to shop any further than that. The lodge was open and clean upon our arrival. The entry is grand. The walls are decorated with wildlife and nature. The master suite is entirely decadent in comfort. You might be tempted not to leave that room! The kitchen is well equipped. Everything has been thought of with tons of dishes, pots and pans (mostly metal though) two ovens, 1 fridge, huge pantry. space is plentiful. We had 18 in total over 7 days ages 18 months to 79 and all had a fantastic time. All beds were very comfortable. We used all the amenities, ping pong,basketball, horseshoes, hot tub, pool table, foosball, bean bag game for kids. etc. It was amazing with 18 people under the same room, at times was quiet as we were spread out everywhere. The river was very high and moving very fast. We tried to fish from the property but were not able to succeed due to the conditions. We would have needed to fish elsewhere where it was more shallow. Huge snow pack still coming down from the mountains. We had plenty of seats around the fire pit for listening to the guitar and roasting marshmallows. The river is so close, it was a real treat to sit out back and see deer, eagles, wild horses, geese, ducks, wild turkeys, etc. The owner was very approachable and extremely helpful. We even got to tour the new LOLO PEAK BREWERY, which is a stones throw away, (one traffic light north). How we wished we would be there for the opening (JULY). This brewery is going to be super fantastic and the "happening" place in town with food and great brew, so make sure to check it out. Mornings are a great time for an early walk. Snow capped mountains, wildlife milling about, spectacular scenery. Our family reunion was perfect because of this wonderful place. It felt like home, we all hated to leave. Definitely recommend & would go back. Wonderful memories.

PERFECT, ABSOLUTELY

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 days at this awesome house, relaxing on the deck, watching sunrises, sunsets, wildlife, and the river. Every morning we thought "How could anyone ever tire of this beautiful view??!" This is a great place to unwind, and get away from it all! The house is extremely comfortable, and has a great open feel. The owner has provided everything, and more than needed. The kitchen was a dream to cook in, the layout was just perfect, it had everything, down to sugar and various spices that you could want. The beds were comfortable, no problem sleeping at all. The master bath was out of this world! One evening we grilled fresh rainbow trout on one of the three grills on the beautiful deck, it was one of the best meals we've had! We took short day trips taking in the fabulous views of the area...and don't forget to stop in Missoula for huckleberry ice cream cones, they were delicious! We would love to go back someday, and we would recommend this place to everyone. Al, the owner was great to work with. Thanks, Al, for a memorable stay!

AWESOME MT VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Spectacular! The house combines beautiful, rustic, fun, luxury and great access to the outdoors. The outdoor area is great with the deck, bar, fire pit and the interior is laid out great for accomodating a large group of people. Being on the river completes it! Owner is great to work with. We really enjoyed our time and would defiintely come back.
