This house is a crowd pleaser! Holly House, which was completely renovated in 2012, is located in in one of Missoula’s most popular neighborhoods nestled between Mount Jumbo and Greenough Park. This versatile house is perfect for family gatherings or even business retreats, yet comfortable and cozy for just a couple. Convenient to both the University of Montana and downtown (about 1 mile from both), this unique 4 bedroom, two bath home will impress you with its comfort and style. It boasts an open floor plan, in-floor radiant heat, beautiful woodwork, maple floors, and a fully appointed cook’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and granite countertops. Enjoy morning coffee on your covered front porch or the great back deck, where you can gaze up at wildlife, hikers, and para-gliders on Mount Jumbo.
Kid-friendly, without sacrificing style, the house can sleep 8-10 people. The open floor plan makes it easy to accommodate large groups for meals. Extra tables and chairs create the perfect set up for a family gathering or group meeting. The bedrooms offer a real sense of privacy. Guests always comment that everyone has their space in this house. The large private master suite has a king-size bed, and a lovely master bathroom with custom cabinets, marble tile, and a large walk-in closet. The second spacious bedroom has a queen-size bed, as well as queen-size pull out couch and great views of Mount Jumbo and the garden. The third bedroom provides two comfortable twin-sized beds. There is also a beautifully tiled full bathroom. All towels, linens, and soap are provided.
Kids will particularly love the fourth bedroom, the loft, which has two skylights that look out on the mountain and two twin beds. A great selection of children’s books awaits as does a TV with Apple TV and DVD player, an array of family friendly DVDs, and cozy beanbags and some fun toys. This house was designed by parents with the needs of family in mind. We know that when you are vacation it is nice to have a little break from the kids. This fantastic upstairs space does just that! On warmer days a free standing air conditioner will keep the loft comfortable. The master bedroom and main living area also have built in air conditioning.
Eclectic modern art adds character to the house. The open floor plan includes a dining area, as well as a cozy living room with flat-screen HD TV with Apple TV featuring both Netflix and Hulu, and DVD player. There is also wireless internet access.

This house is sure to please year-round. You will feel part of Missoula’s friendliest neighborhood close to wonderful playgrounds, magical Greenough Park and Rattlesnake Creek. Hike or bike to the University, downtown to the farmer’s markets, enjoy the wonderful selection of shops, coffee-houses, restaurants, and art galleries. Hike up Mt. Jumbo, or Rattlesnake Wilderness. Take the kids to the Missoula Children’s Museum, to the carousel, or for a swim in the Clark Fork River. In the winter, enjoy skiing at nearby Snowbowl, or a number of local cross-country ski-areas. An endless number of day trips will round out a great vacation is the Garden City. Please note that parties or events at the house are limited to no more than 20 people.
Jim and Erin Pelger lovingly renovated this house for Erin's parents, who live on the East Coast but love to visit their four grand-children in Missoula. They are experienced landlords, remodelers and lovers of Missoula.

This property is perfectly located in Missoula, close to great trails, the university, and downtown.
This house has great views of Mount Jumbo and is a short walk to Greenough Park.
The best VRBO we have ever stayed in! Holly House is so clean and comfortable and Erin is a real pleasure to work with! Everyone visiting Missoula should stay at the Holly House. First rate!
We rented the Holly House for a week, to host an employee summit and board retreat. The home was beautiful, and afforded a very comfortable, cozy, location to build camaraderie and next steps for our organization. Erin was a terrific host, very friendly, full of good ideas of things to do in the area, and helped us with anything we needed. We'll definitely be back!!
This home had plenty of space for our family. I wish we could have stayed in the summer so we could have enjoyed the lovely front porch and yard. This was conveniently located, just a few minutes to downtown and the university. We will definitely look at this house again when we visit Missoula!
Our experience renting the Holly House was wonderful! From start to finish Erin was attentive to our needs and helpful. We vacationed in Missoula for the week while visiting our son who is a freshman at the University of Montana. The house was a perfect location to hop to and from the school either by biking, car or even walking. We loved having the quaint park nearby for quick walks dodging the raindrops. We also love the location being so close to Rattlesnake as we enjoy hiking up there.
As for the house itself, it is a very clean, well kept, SPACIOUS home that allowed us to entertain some of our son's new friends to dinner. Our son enjoyed having his own "wing" at the house as a change from the dorm. We also had our daughter fly out to join us for the weekend and we still had empty bedrooms! The kitchen is immaculate and has all the basics if you want to cook. As we were on vacation we ordered in and ate out but if we wanted to actually cook something there were plenty of pans and dishes as well as spices.
Definitely give this rental an A++++ and we plan on renting again on our return to Missoula. Thanks Erin!
The house is a real gem. It is lovely house built with lots of skill and good planning. It is furnished with a comfortable furnishings and interesting art and artifacts. Erin, the owner, is close by in case you have questions or problems. I highly recommend it.
We had family members from throughout the country meet in Missoula and we all thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations. The back patio with view of Mount Jumbo and the convenient access to Greenough park were especially nice. Erin is very accommodating and easy to work with.
