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. It features five bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master bedroom is connected to a fully equipped exercise room with a treadmill, an elyptical 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. For those evening barbeques there is a screened in porch with refrigerator, built in gas grill and 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..(all types of watercraft are also available for rent for a nominal fee.) 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.

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!

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!

WONDERFUL STAY OUR LOG HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
I booked the lodge which was 5 minutes away from where my niece was getting married. I am from a large family and all my brothers and sisters were able to stay at the lodge. The 5 bedrooms were perfect for us. My mom ended up staying in the master suite with one of my sisters so Tom brought in a cot for my niece which worked out terrific.
Having the River right there was so relaxing and pretty. We al enjoyed our stay.
The only reason I did not give it a 5 was because there is always room for improvement, being the first rental of the year there were a few little things that needed tweeked. I would definitely stay here again and probably will when my other niece gets married.

WEDDING IN MONTANA

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 11 family members stay at The House. It is such a calm setting and was close to the wedding site. The river was high and fun to watch the jumping fish. The kitchen was such a wonderful surprise as we had to make kabob's for the wedding, Longhorn beef from my brother's place in SD. The kitchen was big enough for us to spread out and get all the work done and still joke around. The other high light was the two spacious living rooms, one with a poker table and the other with a fireplace. Plenty of space to spread out and enjoy each others company! Tom was very helpful with any questions we had and gave us an immediate response each time.We have recommended this place to many of our relatives and friends already. The Shack in nearby Missoula was a great place for breakfast.

2012 FLORENCE, MT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the beautiful location of this property with our extended family. This house is very nice, but the entrance is only a foyer, with at least 4 or 5 stairs to every level. And definitely not child/toddler friendly. Our only disappointment was the bunk house. We thought it was attached to the main house, it is not and it is just beds, no bathroom.

Every one was very helpful with all our questions and/or needs. This is a quiet secluded property and a totally wonderful place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous river view from every window on the main floor. We especially enjoyed the kitchen/dining area which was the main gathering place for our group - ample room for all.

Thank you for the lovely time in Montana.
