Overview

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 quiet 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 pit...star 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.

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 36 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

We truly enjoyed our stay at your "hideaway!" You've done a great job making it comfortable and inviting. Our daughter gave us a couple nights stay here for our Christmas gift. We got to spend New Year's Eve here in 2016. Thank you for your hospitality. We also enjoyed the views and photographing the area.

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 HideAway....do it! It will be such a blessing. Words can't describe it...

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, well-appointed studio apartment that is attached to the owner's home, separated from it by a garage. It has private front and and back entrances, a porch with a privacy screen on the owner's side, and lovely landscaping (still a bit in progress) on the other side, creating a kind of large garden and outdoor living space for the apartment. The house and apartment are in a small development along the Missouri River. The apartment's river frontage includes a little terrace above the river with table and chairs. Stairs go down to a rock walkway at the top of the river bank. It is very peaceful to sit in any of the outdoor spaces. We saw deer, rabbits, ground squirrels, pelicans and a range of other water birds. There is currently no river access from the apartment's frontage (very steep, very brushy banks), though it appears that you might be able to get to the river from the owner's back yard. The property is 20-30 minutes from the two nearest towns, both of which have servicable grocery stores and a few restaurants. In the mountains nearby (nearby for Montana!) there is some beautiful hiking, including Crow Creek Falls.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to write a review. So glad to hear that you enjoyed the lower deck; as it does give our guests a quiet, serene, private and peaceful view of the river. We do have plans to put a few steps down to the river from the lower deck. Our carriage house was designed to give our guests space and privacy to ensure they have an exceptional stay. Crow Creek Falls is a beautiful hike. We are happy you had an opportunity to explore some of the area.

WONDERFULLY SERENE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

Jim and I wanted a place to go that was lovely, modern and secluded. We found all of these here. The place is beautiful and right on the river. The views are AMAZING--the amount of birds we saw every day was incredible,--Hawks and Eagles nearby. Ellie and her husband have all the things you need even a bird book, a grill, a outdoor fire pit and indoor fireplace, bath salts for the bath, etc. We would go out every day for hikes, canoeing and sightseeing and come back to this beautiful home. Every morning I would walk while Jim would fish--It truly was good for my soul.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. First of all, it's beautiful inside and out. The bathroom is beautiful, the kitchen is great,the bed is comfortable, and the view is amazing. Second, it's in a great location. Just far enough from everything, while still being close enough to everything you need. Perfect for a couple's retreat.

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!

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!
