Montana Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 1- 2 people

Whether it is adventure or romance your stay at the 'Hideaway' will refresh your soul. Located on the Missouri River, this brand new vacation rental, with 300 ft. of river frontage, is the perfect location for that special getaway.

After preparing a romantic dinner in your kitchen you can relax on your private deck with your loved one while you enjoy the wild life, summer sunset or the moon glistening on the river. What could be sweeter than a blazing fire in the fire gazing and eating S'mores. If you prefer to stay indoors you can enjoy sitting or reading by your cozy fireplace.

End your evening with a salt bath in the jetted tub and then climb into a very luxurious king size bed with your choice of down or synthetic pillows for a restful night sleep. The next morning while you are getting ready for your day you can watch the sun come up over the mountains.

The Missouri River is abundant with brown and rainbow trout. You may also catch some walleye and pike.

The fall hunting is among the best and the peaceful winter scenery makes ice-fishing and skiing a very enjoyable experience .

About Ellie

Bill & I built this very special carriage house vacation rental with YOU in mind. Based on over 35 years in the travel industry we created, what we believe, to be a very relaxing, private, serene, comfortable and tranquil getaway. You will love it here!

Ellie purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Ellie chose Montana

Ellie was born and raised in Montana and her grandfather, Shadan Lahood, was instrumental to her living on the river. When she was a small girl she would take (what seemed like forever) the very long drive from Helena to LaHood Park...about 60 miles and has now created what Ellie calls a modern day LaHood Park on the Missouri river. AKA : The 'Hideaway.'

What makes this bungalow unique

Our carriage house caters to a romantic getaway. Most of our guests visit us for a special occasion eg: Anniversaries, engagements, birthdays, honeymooners and couples that are just reconnecting. We are rural and away from it all on the Missouri river. We welcome small weddings, vow renewals and elopements.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, what a sweet & special find! The "Hideaway" was perfect for our 8th wedding anniversary weekend get away. We love the thought and care that went into the design of the "Hideaway" & the craftsmanship is simply amazing. Thanks for the wine, chocolate, hiking recommendations and for the sweet hospitality. We'll be back!!!

Amazing time at the Hideaway! - A Must stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband is a Pastor and we have learned how important it is to get away and refresh to help have the energy and ability to pour into others. Staying at The Hideaway provided just the rest and relaxation that we needed. The Hidaway is adorable, layed out well, and decorated in a soothing and relaxing manner. The special touches our hosts provided (great soaps, fresh flowers, teas, etc...) blessed us tremendously and showed they truly care about their guests having a blessed and special time. The location is private and right on the river providing a beautiful view. We enjoyed just sitting and talking or reading on the loveseat that looked out to the mountains and river. It is so quiet (besides the trains in the distance which we loved) and the perfect place to clear your head from all the noise of the city and noise of life in general. It's a great place to quiet your heart, remove distractions, and hear from God.

The bed is AWESOME. I have never been somewhere where I wasn't looking forward to returning to my own bed.

If you are waivering on whether or not to stay at The it! It will be such a blessing. Words can't describe it...

Second Visit in 10 months!

  • 5 of 5

This our favorite place to get away! My husband and I have stayed a The Hideaway twice in 10 months. Easy Drive from Minnesota and the perfect jumping off point for each days adventure. We got massages in Helena, soaked in the White Sulphur Hot Springs, bummed around Bozeman, dined in historic Three Rivers, drove to Big Sky, Livingston and hit Red Lodge in the way home (Not a direct route but beautiful). The accommodations are the highest quality, beautifully appointed and very clean. It has everything needed for a romantic, adventurous, or quiet get away. We feel blessed by Bill and Ellie's hospitality. We will most definitely make the Hideaway a vacation destination as often as possible!

10th anniversary at the Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is truly an amazing location. Bill and Ellie truly put their hearts into this vacation rental and the results are breathtaking.The home was beautifully decorated and was very cozy and romantic.The mountain views were so amazing that I actually teared up when I saw the first sunrise over the mountains from the back porch. Fishing along the river was great fun (well it was after Bill helped unravel my fishing line and taught me how to use my fishing pole...thank you). We cannot imagine staying anywhere else when we return to Montana.

Relaxing, reflective retreat

  • 5 of 5

I booked this for a romantic getaway with myself! I needed to work on a novel and clear the head/de-stress, while eating clean and doing yoga. This was the perfect spot to do it, with the Missouri River looking right back at you off the rear porch. Ellie & Bill were super sweet and thoughtful; everything you need is provided, from extra TP/tissue/paper towels to laundry supplies, citronella candles, garbage bags, etc. The home is very well taken care of and clean, new feeling, and modern-enough to feel ultra comfortable.

I was so productive and relaxed that the only night I turned on the television was the first night. I did end up having to buy an internet tethering plan for my phone to stay connected through my laptop and stream a movie here and there / check email, but they note that there is no wifi in the listing so this is no surprise. I cooked great meals every day, drove into Helena a couple times to sight-see and get some wonderful massages at Ellie's recommendation, which was SO worth the drive! It's super peaceful and spiritual out there, and you can also see how local agriculture gets managed, just watching the equipment and how it gets used (fascinating to someone who lives in a non-agricultural zone of California!). Little bunnies hopped around the yard, and hummingbirds came to say hi when I had breakfast out on the back porch. Sunset and sunrise -- blissful. The wide open space and glory of the sky -- breathtaking. This was an experimental trip to accomplish some projects but also to see if MT is a place I'd enjoy and want to come back to -- and I sure did! Thanks again for a great stay!

We are located on the Missouri River between Bozeman and Helena in a very quiet,serene & rural location. Bozeman Gallatin airport is located just 43 miles away, Helena regional airport is 45 miles and Butte is only 64 miles.

Other Activities: We spent last summer exploring Yellowstone National Park, touring the Lewis & Clark caverns, floating/fishing the river, riding the tour train in Helena, MT, shopping in Ennis, MT, hiking the mountains in the area and soaking in some of the best hot springs around. And our favorite was trying out some of the best little unknown restaurants within an easy drive of the Hideaway. Some of our favorite's are: Pompey's Grill, Sacajawea Bar, Willow Creek Restaurant and LaHood Park Cafe.

Golf: Our nearest Golf course is just 20 miles away in a quaint Montana town of Three Forks.

Ski: We prefer skiing the local mountains such as the Great Divide~Helena, Showdown~Niehart, Discovery~Anaconda and Bridger~Bozeman. If you prefer a more resort style skiing experience Big Sky Ski & Resort is just an hour and half drive!
