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!
