ACTIVE ESCAPE IN THE RATTLESNAKE, NEWLY REMODELED, 1940'S CHARM, GARDEN, BIKES

Missoula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath + Open Office/Bedroom/Loft + Workout Studio, Sleeps 8

The Rattlesnake house is a delightful blend of 1940’s charm and twenty first century ease. Nestled in the lovely lower Rattlesnake valley, the home features stunning views of Missoula’s iconic Mt. Jumbo and Mt. Sentinel. Enjoy morning walks through Greenough Park or an afternoon of hiking or biking in the Rattlesnake Recreation area. You will find the best of Missoula at your fingertips, including The University of Montana (within walking distance of Griz games), farmer’s markets, museums, fine dining, cafes and bakeries. The beautiful Rock Creek and Clark Fork rivers provides an opportunity for world renowned fly fishing, floating, swimming, kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding. There are seven golf courses in the area. Additionally, this house is perfect for the out-door enthusiast with the Rattlesnake Wilderness just up the road. It is ideal for family gatherings, stress-free vacations, or a place to heal and relax after a treatment at St. Patrick Hospital.

This classy abode features a gorgeous back patio and grill, ideal for summer barbeques at foot of Mt. Jumbo. Enjoy vegetables from the garden and Italian plums in the late summer and early fall, all from the back yard. Come winter, curl up by the fireplace with a good book or play board games with friends in our the overstuffed leather coaches. On the main floor, you will take pleasure in a cozy living room, classic dining room and state of the art kitchen. Stay fit and healthy in the workout studio and entertainment room which includes a treadmill, flat screen TV, free weights, and yoga mats. The master suite features stunning bamboo floors and a slate multi-jet shower. Finally, enjoy a souvenir of the “last best place” by purchasing any of the 17 spectacular framed prints of the Missoula valley displayed throughout the house, taken by professional photographer, Tom Robertson.

Avid outdoor enthusiast, local dentist, pilot, professional triathlete. I grew up in Great Falls, MT, moved to Missoula in 2003, and fell in love with the town. I love to mountain bike, telemark and skate ski, hike, backpack, and garden. I would love to share the opportunity to experience Missoula with you with my well equipped house. Everything you need, all in one place.

Adam Jensen purchased this house in 2011

This house has convenient backdoor access to countless outdoor activities literally from the back door. Hike up Mount Jumbo (three blocks away), walk through the beautiful Greenough Park along the Rattlesnake River (three blocks away), run around the Waterworks Conservation area (5 minutes jog away), and mountain bike just up the road in the Rattlesnake Recreation area. Or sit on the peaceful paver patio, next to the large garden, while watching deer, elk, and hang gliders fly off of Mt. Jumbo. Inside is a home away from home, with a modern kitchen, propane BBQ, beautiful dining table, comfortable leather couches next to the cozy gas fireplace, Direct TV with Tivo, huge master bedroom with private bath. The new shower features a 6 jet and rainfall shower head panel and views of Mt. Jumbo, which is perfect after a long adventure outside, or even a workout in the convenient workout studio in the basement.

outstanding place

This place was great. Completely comfortable, nice things everywhere, close to everything you'd want in Missoula. I particularly appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. Every spice and condiment you could want, sharp good-quality knives (which I've never seen in a rental, anyplace), good cookware, etc. Can't recommend the place more highly!

Three friends and I stayed at the Active Escape and had a great time. The home met all of our needs and the cruiser bikes were an added bonus. The location had great access to the University, Rattlesnake recreation area, and downtown. The house had all the amenities and was a great place for relaxation. I hope to be back soon! Absolutely love Missoula!

Perfect home base for a great week in Missoula

  • Submitted: Aug 14, 2013

Aiming for a week to unwind, visit friends, and satisfy family member's varied interests we found this the perfect accommodations. We hiked, skied, walked, biked, did a bit of climbing, went to a concert, a movie, shopped, and ate out about once a day (if you count runs to great Missoula bakeries). Convenient to bus lines and walking distance to town, we used the rental car less than half the days we stayed.

The workout room got used each day whether for yoga or dumbbell exercises, and the space in the house was arranged across the three floors in ways that made privacy, desire for music, TV movies, and different schedules entirely possible for the five members of our family from age 50 to 15. In the master suite we had complete quiet and privacy no matter what else was going on.

The house was pristine, hot water and water pressure excellent, the kitchen well-equipped, the grill was great, the bikes handy, the neighbors friendly, and we opted to look after the chickens and retrieve the eggs which was fun. Everything was as expected. The owner was very responsive before and during our stay and was a good connection to ideas about local options. Hope we will be back again.

Wonderful home and location!

This house was perfect for our family 4! It's proximity to the trail systems and the university campus were ideal. The construction made it a bit difficult to get in and out but that's temporary. The deck and yard were perfect for hanging out and wildlife watching!

The location of the house was convenient. It was nice to walk one block and get to the trail to hike up to the "L". The house was clean and perfect for our family. We also took advantage of the bicycles to go to the park and downtown. We had a lovely time in Missoula and look forward to returning!
