Located so close to Missoula, you'll find many nearby opportunities for dining, live entertainment, great shopping, theatres and recreation. Choose from fly fishing, golf, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, swimming, day trips to Glacier National Park or Flathead Lake, or numerous other national forests in the area.
Transportation to and from the Lodge is easy. We are close to the airport and Interstate 90, yet far enough away to provide you with peace and solitude. Ample private parking for six or more vehicles.

A great corporate meeting place as well.

Dennis and Dorinda have retired after 30 years in the customer service industry. They live on the property in the caretaker's house. They are native New Yorkers transplanted to this tranquil and magical setting. They enjoy every aspect of life in Missoula. Having grown up in the Bronx and Westchester County in NY they are used to everything that NY City offers in the way of culture, shopping and lifestyle. They don't miss a thing except perhaps the white sandy beaches of long island. The magnificent rivers and many water ways satisfy their love of being near the water. Bird watching and communing with nature right at home on the lodge grounds provides a storybook retirement for them. Their family pets love the lifestyle as well. Luke and Leo are brothers from the same litter. They love to frolic in the creek and explore nature with Dennis and Dorinda. Gomez their 30 year old Macaw is lots of fun to be around. He is beautiful and dances for the guests. Gomez loves being outside on the deck and enjoys the surroundings. Lots of birds and wildlife for him to enjoy. He loves the guests at the lodge and will greet you with a happy 'Hello'
Dorinda and Dennis Delena purchased this lodge in 2000
Missoula is a magical place. The scenery is breathtaking. Hip and modern while still giving you that old west feeling. On the way to the lodge you will see horses, cows, deer, wild turkey, large birds, mountains and more.
We immediately fell in love with the historic city center. The allure of a University town really appealed to us. So much going on all of the time...all four seasons.
The galleries, artist communities, farmers market and street festivals provide ongoing activities week after week. The parks, ski areas, golf courses, bike trails and forests provide enjoyable outdoor recreation year round. The change of seasons and endless outdoor activities make you feel like you are on vacation 12 months a year!
You will feel secluded tucked away in the lodge off of a dirt road in the mountains among the pines and yet...in just fifteen minutes you can be in the heart of down town Missoula enjoying live entertainment, great food, wonderful shopping, art galleries, the University Of Montana and historic monuments all around.
We are the owners of a local restaurant (The Catalyst) and every year we struggle to find a fun, unique venue for our holiday staff party. By chance we discovered the Butler Creek Lodge and it was amazing. Beautiful home, beautiful grounds, great hosts, perfectly appointed - it honestly could not have suited us better. A great bargain for all you get. We love our staff and wanted to show them our appreciation for work well done - this was an ideal venue for that. We hosted about 40 people for the party, and since the lodge is only 15 minutes from downtown Missoula, our guests had the option to use one of our designated drivers to get home quickly and safely, or they could stay the night in one of the 7 amazing bedrooms (we also rented the 2 bedroom suite). The options for use of this rental are endless. It truly is a treasure for Missoula and more people need to know about it! I use VRBO all the time, and when looking for a property that rents for just one night for a private party it is nearly impossible to find - Missoula - support this business!!
Recently we had a group of friends (8) attend the Paul McCartney concert in Missoula, MT. We stayed at the Butler Creek Lodge and had a fantastic time. Dorinda and Dennis greeted us upon arrival and as Dorinda showed us around the lodge Dennis put on some Beatles music to get everyone geared up for the concert. They really added a warm and welcoming environment to our stay.
The property itself was amazing and pictures definitely won't do it justice. Several rooms in the large lodge so that everyone in our group had their own bed for the evening (definitely better than cramming 8 people into two hotel rooms). The kitchen, dining, and living room area provided a big, open atmosphere where we all could relax and enjoy drinks or play a few games. As a huge bonus, the drive into Missoula only 15 minutes.
The only thing we regret about our visit was not staying longer! We were looking for something to simply sleep in for a night that would accommodate a large group and ended up getting a vacation property that we can't wait to go back to...next time for several days!
The house was awesome. The owners were so nice. We loved the place. Wish we had more time to spend and enjoy the house. It is well worth the price .It is a place that I will always go back to if I ever go back to Missoula .
