Review submitted: August 23, 2014   Date of arrival: August 17, 2014

Perfect! That’s the only way to describe this place. Nancy and Dutch have done everything they can to make this truly a comfortable place to stay. The furnishings, décor and appointments leave nothing to be desired. The quietness of the area spoils you. The views are incredible and the river very accommodating if you are a fly fisherman.

We had planned on making several day trips while here but the covered patio, (one of two patios), refused to let us leave the house. If you must leave for groceries or shopping, Florence is just a few minutes away. Plan on seeing lots of wild life with eagles, deer and turkey the norm.

We are from Pennsylvania and this was to be the first stop of five fly fishing destinations. Frankly we have become spoiled by this place and are not looking forward to leaving. The only negative comment we have is we have to leave. We can’t wait until next year……………

Perfect House for Spending Time in the Mountains

Review submitted: July 15, 2014   Date of arrival: June 23, 2014

Although our group may not have been the normal demographic (young professionals) for this property, we truly enjoyed this house and environment. We rented this property for a friend's wedding down the road. Everything you need to cook, relax and really enjoy Florence and its' beautiful nature. Property definitely described well, and very clean. You'll feel at home away from home in this quiet neighborhood with nothing but nature. I would recommend to any group, family, or couple who want to spend time along the Bitterroot River. I small breakfast shop down the road was excellent, fishing spots, and of course with a drive, hiking. Grocery store not far, and with a 20-25 minute drive to Missoula, there's a lot to do, and many chains if you forgot something for the trip.

Highlights were the spacious house with a beautiful deck, grill, sun room and porch off the master bedroom, open backyard, and the sunlit living room. The family room looked out of the deck sliding doors on a wonderful view of the river and mountains. Our only real complaint would have been the mosquitoes, apparently they were worse than normal this year. But, the property owners were nice to leave spray. Overall, awesome trip! Thanks Nancy.

Owners response: Thank you very much for your kind review, we appreciate it. We had an extremely heavy mountain snow pack this past winter and a long, slow melt which contributed to an extended runoff period, which in turn gave us a far above normal mosquito crop. With spray and mosquito dunks they only lasted a short time.

Our stay on the Bitterroot

Review submitted: July 23, 2013   Date of arrival: July 8, 2013

We found the house to be clean, well furnished and everything needed for cooking and washing clothes. The location is easy to get to and stores and Missoula are nearby. We enjoyed fishing in the river behind the house and watching deer and waterfowl along the river. This a very peaceful place and we were able to relax and enjoy our stay. The only thing I would like to have had would be a quality gas grill.

I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone, we truly enjoyed our stay.

2 Weeks in Paradise

Review submitted: August 25, 2012   Date of arrival: August 8, 2012

Dutch and Nancy have a slice of paradise on the Bitterrroot River. The house is well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The views of the Sapphire Mountains across the river with the sunrise are spectacular. We saw deer, eagles, ospreys and sand hill cranes all from the comfort of the back deck. For those who enjoy fly fishing, as my husband does, the river is at the edge of the property. Missoula is a short 20 minutes drive away. Don’t forget to visit the extensive farmer’s market on Saturdays. We would stay here again in a heartbeat if we were not moving to the area next year.

Review submitted: March 10, 2012   Date of arrival: August 1, 2011

My husband and I have stayed at this property twice now--for a month each time. Upon our arrival the first time, we were just so overwhelmed with the lovely views across the Bitterroot River to the east and the mountains to the west of us that we knew we were going to be coming back. The home was exactly as described regarding its location. As far as the photos of the house are concerned, they really didn't do the house justice. Everything was so much more roomy and comfortable and big. There are new photos now on the website, and there is nothing inaccurate about them. This is a wonderful home. It was clean and spotless when we arrived; everything was in good working order.

We enjoyed just "being" know, sitting and staring at the views and the sunsets and sunrises. But we also enjoyed going to the Garnet ghost town with visitors. And, because the Bitterroot behind the house is considered a family float river, our guests took a couple of float trips, including me. Watched an osprey dip down and catch a fish.

You can't go wrong renting this house. The best bonus is that the owners, Nancy and Dutch, are just so friendly and helpful. They really want their renters to have a good experience and an enjoyable time.

R and R on the River

Review submitted: October 13, 2011   Date of arrival: October 1, 2011

Comfortable, well-maintained home right on the Bitterroot River. The property feels out-of-the-way even though you are only 1 mile from the main highway and a quick 25 minute drive to Missoula. The adjacent properties are all large and well-kept making for a nice neighborhood. My husband and I had a very relaxing week at this lovely home, and enjoyed having a glass of wine on the back porch while gazing out onto the Sapphire mountains across the river. The house is well equipped, with everything you need, and the queen bed was very comfortable. We had decent fishing right out the back, and also used a great guide for 3 days. This house is super convenient for floating various parts of the Bitterroot. One of our favorite things about a “Montana” vacation is the opportunity to do nothing but enjoy the peaceful surroundings and scenery. This house is a wonderful place to do just that.

Abundant wildlife and comfortable house

Review submitted: January 20, 2010   Date of arrival: August 13, 2008

Staying here was a unique experience for us. To sit here in the early morning and look out, seeing deer, elk, turkeys, and that wonderful funny round marmot who is convinced, I'm sure, that this is HIS home, not ours. This is such beautiful country -- we will not forget it. Your house is lovely, so thoughtfully equipped. We never lacked for a thing -- we were so comfortable.
