4 SEASONS OF BEAUTY

Missoula Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This peaceful retreat is nestled in the foothills of the Sapphire mountains in Montana's Bitterroot Valley, a 45-minute drive from downtown Missoula and 15 minutes from Florence, the nearest town. From the Missoula airport, you'll drive down the beautiful highway 93 with spectacular views of Rocky Mountain peaks. You'll head east into the hills, winding through forests and meadows to your mountain haven. The cabin is located near a maintained county road and all-wheel drive is recommended, October through May, for the last mile.

Majestic ponderosa pines and a vibrant display of wild flowers surround the cabin. Inside, wide windows to the south and west bring the snow-capped peaks of the Bitterroot Range into view wherever you turn. From sunrise to sunset, you will bask in the immense landscape - inviting you to savor meals on the deck, take a walk among the lupines on nearby trails, or nap with the summer breeze carrying the scent of pines. The abundant natural light and open floor plan create a feeling of calm spaciousness inside the cabin. This unique home features energy-efficient straw bale construction - a solid and durable option with renewable materials.

When you're ready for adventure, culture, dining out or shopping, the surrounding area offers multitudes of opportunities. You can enjoy an active day in the forest, on the river, browsing through shops or taking in some local music or theater; then return in a short amount of time to your serene mountain sanctuary. The cabin shelves are stocked with information about the many options for outdoor fun and city activities.

The nearby Bitterroot River is perfect for fishing, swimming or boating. Local outfitters offer guided fishing, rafting, kayaking and canoeing trips, or you can rent equipment nearby. For land lovers, dozens of hiking and biking trails wind creekside through scenic canyons in the Bitterroot and Missoula valleys. In the winter, the crisp Montana outdoors beckons you to snowshoe, cross-country ski or downhill ski at your choice of areas located within one and a half hours drive; or right outside your door when there's snow.

Missoula is a thriving university town full of shops and restaurants. Local favorites include Saturday morning farmers' markets and weekend music, arts and crafts festivals. Right in the heart of downtown, the riverside Caras Park hosts outdoor live music and food events. A Carousel for Missoula is another popular downtown destination for kids of all ages. Museum lovers will want to check out the Missoula Art Museum and the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula.

When you're spending a quieter day in the hills, the cabin is just a 15-minute drive away from Florence, where you can shop for groceries and other necessities, or savor a slice of pie at the local cafe.

This cabin holds all you need to live the mountain life for a week or two. This getaway is tastefully furnished with cozy new beds, comfortable seating, a fully equipped kitchen, a barbecue and deck furniture. The cabin is designed and set up to ensure you a relaxing vacation.

Keywords: Quiet cabin in the pines with mountain views, close to vibrant Missoula and outdoor community.

I fell in love with Montana the first time I saw it back in 1978 when my mother, brother and I were visiting a sister who was working in West Yellowstone. The beauty of the land spoke deeply to me so I decided to make Montana my home. That decision, combined with buying the land in 1990 and building a straw bale house there in 1994 have been some of the best decisions of my life.

Rosemary Polichio purchased this cabin in 1990

I purchased the property to build a meditation retreat center, which was the site's initial use for several summers. I chose the location because of the awesome views and the peaceful and healing energy of the land. I built the house with the help of friends and family. It's a very special place to me and to friends who have stayed there over the years and I'm happy to make it available for others to discover its healing magic and peaceful beauty.

As a lover of the outdoors and wildlife, I appreciate being surrounded by natural beauty at the cabin. Often, I see deer quietly chewing grass, hawks soaring overhead and the most amazing sunsets. The elk herd sometimes passes through the property from the nearby Welcome Creek Wilderness area. I enjoy hiking right from the doorstep, through the forest and meadows. On hot days, I head down to the Bitterroot River to swim or watch birds at the nearby Lee Metcalf bird refuge. The quiet solitude of the place has inspired friends who are artists, musicians and writers to spend time there, creating.

The cabin's remoteness as well as it's close proximity to services in Missoula's city center make it an ideal getaway for any length of time.

RETURNING TO MONTANA

  • 5 of 5
Was the perfect get-a-way for the family. Although the rivers were a bit high the stay was just right for the family. We were remote enough to have the solitude and family time we were looking for and close enough to go play in town or head to the river. Game nights a + for us on our family vacation. We also enjoyed listening to the elk each night an were fortunate to get a glimpse of them on occasion.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
I spent some quiet winter time here and was stunned by sunrise and sunset views. This is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. The wood burning stove kept the house warm, and the panoramic view of the the valley to the bitterroot range is worth the trip. The house is literally at the end of the road, and located on a large property, so if you're looking for privacy and seclusion, then this is the place. It's a little far from the nearest store (maybe 10 min drive) but I just bought what I needed when I came in. Rosemary was extremely helpful in getting me settled in and showed where to go to play in the mountains.

BREATHE THE CRISP, CLEAR AIR

  • 5 of 5
This spacious strawbale house nestled in the foothills of the Sapphires has at least a dozen large windows that look across the valley towards the mighty Bitterroot Mountains. Sitting in the rounded window wells, we saw deer, raptors, turkeys and a woodpecker. We were lucky enough to have fresh snow, making the inside of the house feel especially welcoming and warm. The morning and afternoon light slants through the many windows with a golden magic. All of the beds were extra compfy, and the large clawfoot tub with blissfully hot water was absolutely divine. We enjoyed the nature trail that wound through a tree-covered ravine and built a snowman. The price was reasonable, especially since we were able to bring our dog. We definitely plan to return this summer!

PERFECT MT. HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
My brand new wife and I stayed here after our wedding in nearby Corvallis. It could not have been a better spot to unwind from all the wedding planning and ceremony excitement. Rosemary was very accommodating and friendly and even left flowers on the table for us newlyweds! There is little praise that hasn't been said already. Stunning views, lots of wildlife (Raptors, song birds, turkeys, elk, deer), cozy house with lots of character. I particularly loved the wood stove on our chilly fall nights. I highly HIGHLY recommend staying here for whatever the occasion: romantic get-away, artist retreat, rustic holidays, or just plain needed quiet relaxation. Any time spent at the 4 Seasons of Beauty is time well spent.

PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Rosemary's cabin was perfect timing. After several long traveling days, we could unwind here and enjoy the amazing property, views of the mountains, and spectacular sunsets. The cabin is spacious and clean with a nice big kitchen in which to cook. We appreciated the nice extras...maps and books about hiking trails, history of the area, and novels. The cabin reflects Rosemary's commitment to healthful living with a very safe environment for families with allergies, i.e. natural products available for use. This is a lovely place!

WONDERFUL TIME AT A WRITING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This "little house in the woods" was perfect for our writing retreat. Airy, with magnificent views, plenty of areas to write at (with enough outlets for laptops!), everything you need in the kitchen for a home-cooked meal, and the quiet surroundings with crickets' songs at night. The road to the cabin was fine for our rented Chevy Impala (but it was summer and dry weather). The phone reception worked great for my Verizon. No wi-fi, but free wi-fi available in places in nearby Florence (such as Cafe Firenze, where people are very nice!). Rosemary (the owner) is very nice and accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed. In short, if you are looking for a secluded retreat in Montana's wilderness (where deer come to your front yard and hummingbirds fly in your open doors), this is the place to be.
