Bitterroot Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 1-4

This cozy 2-bedroom cabin is located off the pristine Lewis and Clark Trail (US HWY 12 W),8 mi. south of Missoula and another 11 1/2 miles west of Lolo. The 2013 Forest Fires impacted the mountains around it for a short distance. It may be awhile to beautiful mountain views from the cabin however the fire stopped within a half mile of the cabin. Thus nearby Lolo Peak, Lolo Creek and close mountains were untouched by the fire, grazing elk, deer and moose. Outstanding hunting, fishing, snow shoeing, snow mobiling,four wheeling,skiing, hiking, biking, soak or swim at nearby hot springs. The night stars are gorgeous from the hot tub during clear nights.

You may also enjoy Missoula's many coffee houses, restaurants or seasonal activities that are yours within a short driving distance. You will enjoy a memorable stay in this charming cabin.

This area is outstanding for outdoor activities as well as activities in the city of Missoula or a drive down the Bitterroot. The cabin is quite nice with a nice living room area which includes satellite tv, wifi internet (that is spotty occasionally with cloudy weather), 2 bedrooms with queen log beds, a nice kitchen and a quiet outdoor deck. A great place to come and relax and venture toward the plethora of sights to see or game to hunt.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the Whispering Moose. The cabin is cozy and the side porch is perfect for relaxing after a full day of fishing. The kitchens is stocked with everything you need. Looking forward to coming back.

Lil piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the peaceful retreat we needed. Loved the wildlife....Hummers, deer, and turkey hens with their chicks, elk bugleing, and wolf calls in the early mornings. The cabin was comfortably furnished with everything one needed. Easy commute into Missoula with plenty of eating places and convenient shopping. The nearby creek was the perfect place to sit and just reflect. We would love to return if we ever get back to the area again. Hosts Jan and Ron, were friendly and welcoming yet non-intrusive. Lil piece of heaven.

Very Relaxing Home Away From Home!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed living here for our vacation! The cabin was warm and comforting! We loved being close to all the beautiful mountains and creeks but also near enough to Missoula. Also, down the road is Lolo hot springs, which is an interesting experience! My Father especially enjoyed being able to explore the mountain roads and being close to fishing spots. We even got to see some wildlife while we were there! The first morning we were there, we were visited by three deer! Also, we went exploring one night and saw two elk and many more deer! We just had a fantastic time! Thank You so much for the amazing hospitality!

Lovely Cozy Cabin Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time at Whispering Moose for our Thanksgiving break! Fun place not too far away from Missoula. Hot tub was perfect on the 12 degree nights with the full moon and stars! Would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a cozy mini vacation. After check out we headed down the road to Jerry Johnson Hot Springs which is an easy and definitely-worth-it day trip, especially on a cold winter day. Thanks Jan and Ron for being welcoming and offering your cabin to us!

Wonderful stay, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our place was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The bedding was great, maybe more better than my bed at home! The bathroom is a bit tight and the shower water pressure is not the best, but all in all, relaxing on the porches, hot tub, and grilling out make me want to come back. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a rustic escape.

Great place to enjoy your Montana adventure

  • 5 of 5

Four fabulous nights in the Lolo river valley, that's what we were treated to. Jan and Ron made their way to our front porch to greet us and give us the low down on from fishing to star gazing. We had a great time watching the wild turkeys, the sunrises and cyclists on the Lewis and Clark trail. the cabin was just as described on their website, two bedrooms, full kitchen, washer and dryer, TV and 1 bathroom. Our privacy was never in question, the cabin is nicely separated from the main log house. Ron provided us some fresh huckleberrys and suggested we heat and pour them on vanilla ice cream, what a treat.
