LOG HOME ON THE BANKS OF THE BITTERROOT RIVER..END OF THE ROAD PRIVACY

Florence House Rental Photos and Description

RIVER HOUSE:

This unique log sided home sits right on the banks of the famous Bitterroot River. The main house features five bedrooms and four bathrooms. (The bunkhouse sleeps an additional 9 people and is an addition $75.00 per night) The master bedroom is connected to a fully equipped exercise room with a treadmill, an elliptical and weight training machines. The master bath has double sinks, shower and a large Jacuzzi tub. Guest bedrooms feature queen beds and plenty of closet space. The large kitchen boasts a commercial gas range, large refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and landscape windows with river views on two sides. The large harvest table and ten foot breakfast bar will seat all of your family and guests with room to spare. There is a screened in porch with river views. Relax and visit with family and friends next to the wood fire place or at the gaming table next to the picture windows with river views from the living area. A two car garage is available to park your vehicles or store your vacation toys during your stay. River House is especially suited for family vacations, corporate retreats, as well as weddings, graduations and special events.

For the fly fisherman River House is located right on the banks of the world famous Bitterroot River...wade and fish the holes behind the house, or use the property for as a put in or take out point for your rafts, canoes, or drift boats.. Guide service is also available locally.... Don't limit yourself to one just one river, fish four great rivers in four days! Three other blue ribbon trout streams are all within 1 hours driving time of River House. The Blackfoot, made famous by the filming of the movie 'A river Runs Through It' is waiting 40 miles to the North. The mighty Clark Fork is a is a big, flat Montana fly fishing River that is dominated by 16 to 24 inch rainbows. Again good fishing on the Clark Fork can be had in just 40 minutes. And of course Rock Creek provides an alternative to the 'big river' experience with moose and bighorn sheep and huge salmon flies along with high numbers of hungry trout that eat them. Just twenty miles East of Missoula. Want more...hike to any one of may high county lakes to try your hand at some great cutthroat and rainbow fishing or drop a line in any one of several of the smaller streams that feed out of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness into the Bitterroot valley. Many a fisherman has visited the Bitterroot valley only to return home, sell the family farm, pack up the family, and move here for good!! LOL

River house is just three hours from the West entrance to Glacier National Park and only five hours from West Yellowstone making it the perfect base camp for exploring all Montana has to offer.

Bring your horses! Lush grass paddocks, ample trailer parking, and plenty of water make River House the obvious choice for those equestrians wanting to explore the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness on horse back. Wilderness trailheads are as close as 10 minutes away.

If 4 wheelers are your thing the Sapphire Mountains 20 minutes to the East is loaded with great single track ATV trails waiting to be explored.

Why Tom Hanks chose Florence

We invite you to enjoy our beautiful river-edge vacation home on the Bitterroot. After driving along the private driveway, you will notice the lovely setting of our special home. Situated right on the Bitterroot River, it provides the unlimited possibilities for exciting fun days spent fishing, swimming, tubing, nature walks, or just relaxing as the river runs by. Hikes in the nearby Bitterroot or Sapphire Mountains are sure to please with sightings of elk,deer, foxes, and countless species of birds. If shopping is your “bag”, the location of the home is only about 15 miles south of Missoula, where you will find plenty of places to pass the time.

Inside the home every window view is like a painting in itself. Mountains, pastures, the river and 10 acres of lush grounds that surround the home. We doubt you’ll find a more beautiful place in the Bitterroot Valley.

Welcome to Paradise!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
Incredible place to stay and the manager Tom was very helpful, provided excellent information prior to and during our stay and never once failed to answer my emails or text. In fact, Tom was fighting fires in Oregon prior to our arrival and maintained communications when his time allowed.
The house was absolutely perfect for our family reunion and the size of the property and access allowed other family members to bring their travel trailers which was great for them and keeping the crowd small inside the house. The house itself allows for cooking large meals and allows everyone to sit and enjoy each others company while not feeling crowded or overrun.
There are no words that could properly describe the view, the beautiful river and the amount of fun and enjoyment this property and Tom made possible for our family reunion. Thanks Tom and we look forward to another great stay.

The home and property absolutely beautiful, located near to Missoula and other areas. The house is quite comfortable and spacious with a large kitchen and dining area which is easy to maneuver and cook in. We spent most of our time behind the house on the river bank enjoying the quiet scenery, fishing and floating the river. I completely fell in love the beauty of this location and surrounding scenery. I could have stayed a lifetime here.

Softball Home Away From Home

This was a beautiful place for our girls to spend their time away from the field which was only 20 minutes away. 13 teenage girls stayed in the bunkhouse while the parents stayed in the big house. There was always plenty of hot water and space. We floated the river and played games...there was so much to do and see outside that they never asked to turn on the tv! The kitchen is huge with plenty of counter space and made cooking for a large group easy...they even have a few large bowls and other cooking supplies. This property is perfect for almost any large group or party and I would definitely come back!

Family vacation/ wedding

  • 5 of 5
Marvelous home! We traveled to the area with a big group of family and friends for my sons wedding. The house was perfect. There was plenty of space for all. The best was the huge kitchen. It was well stocked, the appliances were perfect and the table and the long bar sat us all plus company. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. Sitting by the river was very relaxing. Plenty of space to play and run for the kids. We had the wedding reception on the lawn. It was perfect. Tables set up by the river and dancing on the lawn. It could not have been more perfect. Tom , the caretaker was very helpful and friendly. After the wedding, we enjoyed tubing the river with the tubes provided with the house. Did a little hiking and rode horses. It was a great vacation house. We are looking forward to returning and seeing more of the area. This was a great house for large family vacations.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
My wife and I were disappointed to find the house dirty, BBQ not working, many stairs and steps making going in and out very difficult. The photos and description are very cleaver however the property is not represented as it really is. Beware it is not as it appears.

Owner's Response: These folks arrived and were surprised to find stairs in the house...They did not ask about stairs when booking or in subsequent conversations and must not have looked at the outside pictures which clearly show three levels to the house...The house is NEVER dirty when guests arrive and they didn't spend enough time at the house to even make that kind of a determination....The BBQ is in the garage and was working just fine....They were upset because I could not refund their deposit...Please note that I did not charge them the 2nd half of the rental even though they were obligated to pay according to the lease they signed and returned...please take their review with a grain of salt and look at all of the other positive reviews we have received as testimony to the quality of our rental. Thanks, Tom

Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5
We used "The River Wedding House" (as we called it) for my daughter's wedding. It could not have been a more perfect place. Tom and Terra were great. We were able to view the place many times to plan everything. They were more than accommodating. It was very important to them that the weekend went off without a hitch. And it did!!! They understood the importance of having a perfect wedding. The amount of our stress was greatly reduced by their willingness to do whatever it took. We moved in early on Friday. The kitchen was so large and roomy that we were able to make all of the bouquets for the wedding. We made decorations in the screened in porch. We also had the rehearsal dinner Friday night. The wedding on Saturday was just beautiful. The grounds were beautifully manicured. We had plenty of parking in the field. We used the bunkhouse both nights.....I was grateful for all of the room. I did not have to worry about people on the roads after the wedding. We had about 100 guests and we were not crowded. We had plenty of room! The river was a great backdrop for the ceremony. Heard the fishing wasn't too bad either! The reception was a great party! Music and dancing. Not only can we not quit commenting that this was the perfect place for a wedding but we have heard it from all of the guests, too. If you want a country wedding, this is definitely the place to have it! The Bitterroot River is so beautiful! We would do it again if we had another daughter! Thank you!
