ON GOLDEN POND is the perfect vacation home for a group of 10 or less.Since the property is a wildlife refuge, this home isn't used as the venue for other activities, such as reunions, weddings, etc.
On Golden Pond is located in the Bitterroot Valley in Montana with close views of the Bitterroot and Sapphire mountains. You can walk out any of the bedrooms or the den and watch waterfowl on the pond and deer sleeping on the grass.
Whitetail deer, fox, coyote, California quail, ducks, geese, pheasants, turtles and bull frogs are some of the wildlife that call this property their home. That is why we limit the amount of guests. You can see wildlife in action when the environment is calm!

About Marilyn A. Morris
I always use VRBO when I travel so it was easy to place this home with them. I retired from a 32 year career in 2006. My goal was to start a lavender farm on the property and that is what I am doing!
Marilyn A. Morris purchased this House in 2000

Amazing get away!
From a well stocked kitchen to immaculately clean rooms, this is definitely a place we intend to stay again!! The views are beautiful and the house is spacious and very comfortable! Marilyn is quite organized and has considered every detail to make visitors feel right at home. She also went out of her way to answer all our questions and to meet all our needs. We were staying with 3 other couples and thoroughly enjoyed the space that is available to be together as well as enough space to spread out as well! This would be a great place for mini family reunions!
You all were such perfect guests!
Thanks so much and I do hope to see you again !
A perfect place! My son and daughter and families from Texas and Hawaii plus son and family who live in Hamilton loved it . Everything was as listed and promised - inside and out. I may not make it but I know they will want to come back. Thank you Marilyn
You and your family were such a delight to have On Golden Pond!
And you were the key person!!!
Great place to spend a week
This was the best place that we have ever stayed at. We travel all around the world and have stayed at a lot of places this is at the top of our list, Thanks again Dan Burt
Wow! Thanks Dan! You and your group were awesome!
I hope we see you again!
A beautiful property, a wonderful place to call "home" ... and an equally wonderful host.
Our siblings group chose On Golden Pond for our annual gathering (4 of us from 3 states). We were all born and raised in Montana and wanted to find a "retreat - getaway" that was near enough that other extended family members could drop in and say "hi" while we were there. Reading the description of On Golden Pond and reviews from previous guests did not fully prepare us for the wonderful place we called "home" during our stay. Of special note for me personally, I was accustomed to a daily hydro massage in my hot tub on my patio ... and was able to continue that during our stay.
As the week progressed, we kept discovering more and more that Marilyn had thought of and had provided in the facility. Never intrusive, but always available for any question or need that we may have had ... to the point of sharing the bounty of her personal garden ... she was a most gracious host.
We all would love to make a return trip in the future!
Hi Doug, you are too kind! Thank you for the wonderful review! You and your family were awesome and I will be lucky if I get to see you all again!
Beautiful home on beautiful property with a great host!
We absolutely loved our time at Golden Pond. Marilyn was such a great host, available and willing to help with anything we needed. The house was perfect for our family of 9. My grandparents loved the side suite. We hope to come back!
Thanks so much! It was fun meeting you all! And after learning a bit about each other, it was fun to find our "connections"!
This was our second visit to On Golden Pond and it was just as enjoyable as our first visit. A truly delightful property with lots of fun wildlife to watch and a great pond for fishing. We enjoyed the back deck porch which overlooks one of the ponds for the most amazing sunsets you will ever see. We grilled out for several of our dinners and enjoyed eating on the porch. One thing we particularly enjoyed was the fully furnished kitchen - all the things one would need to easily cook a family meal. Marilyn was also such a wonderful host! If we ever had any questions, she was always quick to respond either by text or coming to the house as necessary. Truly a wonderful host! I would highly recommend this property/home to anyone who loves the outdoors and enjoys a home with nice perks!
We enjoyed the town of Hamilton and visited many restaurants and shops. Some of our favorites are the Saturday Farmers' Market (so many delicious homegrown veggies and nice jewelry/pottery), Sweetwater Beads and Gifts, A Taste of Paris Restaurant (my favorite!), Naps Restaurant....so many! We did a few day trips as well to Polson, Missoula, and more. The fishing on the Bitterroot River was loads of fun!
Just a great trip full of many fun memories - we have already made our reservations for a third year at On Golden Pond! Can't wait!
Thank you so much for your kindness! Your family is amazing!! I loved having you all stay On Golden Pond
