Ellison Lane Riverfront Rental - Missoula

This vacation home is in a quiet, peaceful, park-like setting on four acres along the beautiful Bitterroot River, on a quiet country lane. The house is located at the north end of the Bitterroot Valley/south end of the Missoula Valley. Missoula is just 15 miles away and has much to offer with shopping, restaurants, museums, farmers markets, the University of Montana. Florence, 3 miles from the house, has several restaurants, a bank, grocery store, and medical facilities. There are several small towns to the south with a variety of restaurants, museums, historical attractions and special events and festivals. Be sure to check www.visitbitterrootvalley.com for more information on the Valley.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck while you watch beautiful sunrises over the Bitterroot River and Sapphire Mountains. In the evening, watch the sun set over the Bitterroot Mountains. Fish, swim, or float the river behind the house or just take a chair down to the river and enjoy the scenery.

Wildlife abound. Canada geese and a variety of ducks use the river. Watch deer and fox wander through the property and eagles and osprey dipping for fish. Hike to nearby mountain trails, lakes, creeks, and ponds.

There are a number of golf courses in Missoula, Stevensville, and Hamilton. And for cyclists, there is a bike path from Lolo south to Darby.

The living room, with glass doors opening to the deck, faces the river and the Sapphire mountain range. The family room, which has a gas fireplace for cool evenings, faces west to the Bitterroot mountain range. It contains a futon that opens to queen-size bed. There are two bedrooms, each with a large bathroom. The main bedroom has a queen bed; the second bedroom has two twin beds.

A sunroom is connected to the main bedroom through french doors. It's a great place to sit and read, work on your computer, or just enjoy the view. The house is spacious and very well stocked and equipped, including your basic cooking essentials and supplies.

For 2014 season we added a new gas grill and new table and chairs for the east deck.

For 2015 we have added a roof over the east deck, a screened porch off the sunroom and a paver stone area for seating and for the grill. Also, the living room and dining room have been updated with laminate flooring and a new dining room table and chairs.

No smoking. Well behaved dogs allowed, but no cats.
