Photos and Description of this Toston holiday studio

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 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 .

For all of you skiing enthusiasts, we are just 68 miles from Bridger Bowl, 91 miles from Big Sky, 102 miles from Showdown located in Neihart and the Great Divide in Helena is 68 miles.

If you prefer, we are also near caverns, historic towns and hot springs.

Lewis & Clark Caverns 36 miles, West Yellowstone 137 miles, Virginia City (open seasonally) 80 miles, Norris Hot Springs 50 miles, Boulder Hot Springs 65 miles and Bozeman Hot Springs 50 miles.

Kim's Marina~ for fishing gear & boat rentals 40 miles on Canyon Ferry Lake

If your day is filled with fishing, rafting, skiing or just relaxing with a good book, you will be comforted knowing that your luxurious romantic retreat is waiting for you!

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

It's all that and more!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this rental are exactly what you find - and then you experience "more"... every detail is well thought out for style and comfort! From the welcome basket goodies, water and candy at bedside, and relaxing/restful color scheme and decor. The property is gorgeous, inside and out pristine and very well-maintained. Owners, Ellie and Bill, are gracious and friendly. This week was the perfect break needed to sit on the deck enjoying the river and views - we could not have asked for more!

Lovely property on the Missouri River - beautiful morning sun and evening sunsets

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nicely appointed studio apartment. It is really new construction and all of the appliances are modern. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the gardening is very attractive. Ellie & Bill are extremely nice owners that will go the extra mile to help - Ellie did some great research for us regarding local fishing guides! We really enjoyed our extended stay at The Hideaway.

The firepit area is private and there is a really sweet deck located halfway down to the river that is wonderful for star gazing on a clear night.

Toston is not really a going concern these days, but Townsend and Three Forks are within a 20 minute drive. Three Forks is quite nice and Townsend also has all the services that you might need.

One caution, we were a bit surprised to find that this "Carriage House" is actually attached to the owner's home. They have done a good job of making it feel private but it was a bit of a surprise when we first arrived.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking a few minutes to write a review. It was great meeting both of you! It seems you had a wonderful stay at the "hideaway" and Montana! I enjoyed the research on the fishing guides and hope our future guests will benefit from some of the local guides. As noted on the Homeaway website: We do not share a common wall with the "Hideaway" as the garage separates our private residence from the carriage house to provide our guests with a private retreat.

Relaxing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four nights here in mid August. This is a great place to get away from it all. Very quite and with the Missouri River at your footstep there is always something to see as you relax from the outside patio of this cottage. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and I thought must have been appointed by a high priced designer but found our host, Ellie had done it herself. The pictures in the listing are accurate and not touched up. The bathroom is huge. You have a king size bed a two person eating table and a really comfortable living room with a fireplace. The furniture is top quality and the wood working is some of the best I have ever seen. Kitchen is well supplied and you actually have a full sized washer and dryer.

Bill and Ellie your hosts and owners are wonderful people who take pride in the cottage, their house and property. But most of all they are warm and inviting people who do every thing to make sure your stay is great experience. We highly recommend this property.

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.

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!
