This vacation home is in a quiet, peaceful, park-like setting on four acres along the beautiful Bitterroot River, convenient to Missoula which is just 13 miles away.
Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck while you watch beautiful sunrises over the river and Sapphire Mountains. In the evening, watch the sun set over the Bitterroot Mountains. Fish, swim, or float the river behind the house.
Hike miles of nearby trails to rugged peaks and mountain lakes, creeks and ponds. Wildlife abound. Canada geese and a variety of ducks use the river. Watch deer and fox wander through the property and eagles and osprey dipping for fish.
The living room, with glass doors opening to the deck, faces the river and the Sapphire mountain range. The family room faces west to the Bitterroot mountain range and contains a futon that opens to queen-size bed. There are two bedrooms, each with a large bathroom. The main bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has two twin beds.
A sunroom is connected to the main bedroom through french doors. It's a great place to sit and read, work on your computer, or just enjoy the view. The kitchen is fully equipped, including your basic cooking essentials such as spices, oil, coffee, tea, sugar.
Some comments from our guestbook:
'Thank you so much for sharing this lovely part of Montana with us! The home and setting were so inspiring to all who visited.'
'You have such a wonderful home! We had a great time relaxing, tubing, and hanging out in Missoula. The kids enjoyed Splash Mountain. Our favorite was just sitting on the deck in the evening watching the river and the animals.'
'All the men in the family loved being at the river. Thank you for your kindness.'
'We enjoyed our stay in the Bitterroot Valley and have many fond memories of your place on the river. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us.'
'We were here for a wedding and your home made our stay perfect. The location, the river, the deer and the (very hot) weather all combined made a very memorable vacation.'
'The view of the river and mountains beyond is magnificant, and the house is spacious and very well stocked and equipped.'

We are Dutch and Nancy Dillon and live on the adjoining acreage. There are several acres with each house and lots of trees, so plenty of privacy for both. We've lived in the Bitterroot Valley since the 70's and just can't imagine living anywhere else. It's quiet, peaceful, and beautiful here. We take pride in ensuring the vacation rental is well maintained and that our guests have everything they need to make their stay most enjoyable. We have, ourselves, stayed in vacation rentals. Using that as a learning experience, we have tried to make our vacation rental as close to home as possible.
Peaceful. Quiet. Country living but can be to town (Missoula) in 15 minutes or head the other direction 15 minutes and hike mountain trails.
Watching the sun rise over the Sapphire mountains. Watching the change of colors in the river. Watching the sunsets over the Bitterroot mountains. Fishing in private in the early morning or evening. Quiet, quiet, quiet, only disturbed occasionally by meadowlarks, Canadian geese, and coyotes.
