Overview

Missoula Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom Lower-Level Walk-out Garden Apartment With Private Patio

The Garden City Guest House is nestled in the quiet Rose Park residential neighborhood just blocks from many services, including City parks, free Mountain Line Bus, the University of Montana and Montana College. This spacious, private, and well-maintained guest house is within walking distance of shopping, dining, sports venues, fitness centers, trails, child care, post office and library, churches, fairgrounds, and many more community and commercial centers. It is also a short distance from most Missoula-area outdoor and tourist destinations. If you point to the center of a City of Missoula map, you would likely find you’ve landed on our special guest house—open year-round, perfect for a weekend getaway or a longer stay.

The guest house is a garden apartment on the lower level of a single family home. The owner and family live on the upper two floors of this newly-remodeled, vintage 1940’s home. We would like you to feel right at home during your stay at the Garden City Guest House and will do whatever we can to ensure your visit is relaxing and memorable. The guest house is thoughtfully furnished and stocked with many family-friendly touches of home, including books, movies, games, puzzles, and more.

The guest house has been furnished to create a serene and peaceful environment for your stay. The 650-square foot guest house can accommodate two people comfortably, and will sleep up to four people in one queen bed and one queen sleeper sofa. The bedroom is comfortably furnished with a queen size bed, bedside tables, shelves, and a five-drawer dresser inside a spacious walk-in closet. You’ll find a 6’ couch in the living room which folds out into a very comfortable queen size memory foam sleeper. All linens are provided. The full bathroom has all new fixtures and furnishings including a tub and spacious tiled shower, an ultra quiet bath fan, and brand new washer/dryer. All flooring is new, including plush carpet in the bedroom.

The kitchen is well-equipped and furnished with all new stainless steel kitchen appliances, including a full-size smoothtop electric cookstove and oven, an 18” “silent” (46 DBA) dishwasher, and a French-door refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser. You’ll also find a microwave, coffee maker, Keurig and K-cups, juicer, blender, toaster, an easy-to-clean granite composite sink with electric disposal, and many other features to make your dining-in experience easy and convenient.

The guest house is a non-smoking establishment with all the modern amenities such as cable on a 42” flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and free wi-fi internet. This walk-out garden apartment was designed with a distinctive separate entry that feels like home, a 100 square foot private patio with BBQ grill and shaded seating, a large garden area, and free off-street parking well lit for safety and convenience.

You’ll find lots of light in this newly redone guest house, accented by stylish mahogany trimmed windows. The daylight design allows the guest house to stay cool, even on the hottest days. For cooler nights, stay comfortable with an electric fireplace, insulated windows, and cozy furnishings. Wall heaters create the perfect temperature in each room utilizing separately zoned thermostats.

We also want to provide you with every opportunity to live sustainably, even while on vacation, if you should choose. We have provided equipment such as a compost bin, plastic bag dryer, recycle bin, laundry washing ball, and energy efficient appliances. We recently converted the fenced-in rear yard to a water-wise landscape, and this summer we anticipate a garden setting representative of the intermountain west grasslands. We maintain several fruit trees on the property—plum, pear, apple, and cherry—and our guests are free to make use of any fruit in season.

SO MUCH BETTER THAN A HOTEL!

  • 5 of 5

The Garden City Guest House is without doubt the best place I've ever had the good fortune to rent. The owner did a great job designing and finishing the space so that it is functional and spacious, but also attractive and homey. Tons of amenities in the bath and kitchen make the place even better. (Things like good shampoo, Q-tips and tissues, kitchen gadgets and appliances, spices and other pantry staples [a lot more than you would expect!], fresh eggs....but also things you might need but didn't bring, like an umbrella, extra tote bags, etc.)

The owner also did a great job making sure we'd know everything we needed to know to park, get into the house, operate stuff in the house, etc. Communicated well and enough that we knew we could rely on her for advice/meeting our needs, without overdoing it.

On top of all that, the backyard gardens were beautiful and so pleasant to walk through on our way in and out of the property. We definitely found ourselves glad to have at least one day that we could spend mostly "at home" so we could really enjoy the place.

You will not be sorry if you rent this place! I have been to Missoula twice before, and very happily stayed with relatives both times. This time we were in town for a wedding, and other folks were staying with the relatives. It will be a hard choice to make on the next trip, because this place is so great!!

Has all the touches

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this property. Great location, its own parking, walking to downtown, university and more. It is a new remodel done tastefully, with all of the little things that were very thoughtful. It was perfect.

My new favorite place to stay in Missoula

  • 5 of 5

I tell everyone I meet how nice this place is for a quiet relaxing stay. The place is every bit as nice as the photos show. There were fresh cherry tomatoes and pears on the counter when I checked in.

I stayed here during a weekend class at the University of Montana in October. This place is so super quiet I didn't hear anybody upstairs. There is parking in the alley by the back gate and the location is close to the University. The owners have a book on the counter with restaurants and attractions close by.

I needed wifi for class and it worked flawlessly during my stay. Other amenities include a full kitchen, large bathroom, and TV with full cable package when you're ready to unwind. The bed was super comfortable and there is a large walk-in closet in the bedroom if you're staying long enough to unpack.

U of M Mom and Grandma from California

The guest house was perfect, clean and very comfy. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. It was equipped with everything you could think of and more. I cooked, I baked, I didn't bring like a vegetable oil back to California with me of course so when I put it in the cabinet for someone else to use I noticed there was flour, canola oil, Crisco, balsamic vinegar you name it , it was there... so when I say it has everything ..it does, I can't wait to stay there again ..Thanks Jennie for the best place to live at while in Missoula!!

This place doesn't miss a beat: Lemon bars, wi-fi, cozy blankets, fluffy slippers, veggies from the garden, and a bottle of wine chillin' in the refrigerator, etc etc! We vote this the best kept secret in Missoula! Thanks J and I, you've got a Garden-Gem-of-a Place! See you next time, Dan and Lisa from Edmonds, WA

Cute basement apartment in Missoula

  • 4 of 5

Wonderfully appointed apartment in Missoula. Well located and generously stocked for cooking onsite. Inspiringly built with sustainability in mind. Only concern was that the bed was a little soft for our taste.
