Photos and Description of this Rose Park holiday house

Missoula, Montana

Elevate your next retreat to Montana’s serene Northern Rockies by reserving a stay at this 2-bed, 1-bath Missoula house, which sleeps 4. With terrific modern amenities and a convenient central location, this property certainly won't disappoint!

This meticulously renovated, historic 1920’s Missoula vacation rental bungalow features is an ideal choice for small families, friends or couples. Perfectly located in a quiet, tree-lined, idyllic neighborhood within short walking distance of Missoula’s most desirable areas, including the University, the Hip Strip, Higgins Street shops, downtown and the waterfront, as well as the town's extensive trail systems. This charming house will let you experience the best of this outdoor lover’s paradise and Missoula's vibrant community. The home's welcoming interior is renovated with beautifully restored hardwood floors, period woodwork, a new portable air conditioning unit, and a totally redone kitchen and bath. Elegant touches abound throughout the house, such as arts-and-crafts-style decor, plenty of upscale furnishings and a classic period clawfoot tub with shower surround in the gorgeously remodeled bathroom, where you’ll also find new bath amenities and 2 plush terrycloth robes for your comfort. Both bedrooms offer new, cushy top-of-the-line mattresses and new, upscale high thread count sheets on all beds, practically guaranteeing a rejuvenating night's sleep.

What really sets this charming bungalow apart is its dedication to sustainability while not sacrificing comfort and luxury. Remodeled with green building products, like paperstone countertops, which is recycled paper bonded together with cashew nut resin, making them hard as stone as well as heat and waterproof and naturally antimicrobial, recycled wood, a water-based non-VOC finish on the newly redone 100-year-old oak wood floors, non-VOC paint and plaster, organic sheets and covers, repurposed cabinets, a water efficient showerhead, absolutely no chemicals or toxic products used inside or out, including only earth-friendly safe cleaning products and essential oils, and no chemical fertilizers in the garden. If that isn’t green enough for you, this home also features all new high efficiency appliances, a newer 96% efficient furnace, LED lights throughout, an on-demand hot water system, full recycling, cruiser bikes provided for town transportation, and a convenient location within easy walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants, breweries, the Clark Fork river, the University of Montana, downtown and other stores. The home is also conveniently close to the community’s zero fare public bus system, located just 1 block away.

Look forward to preparing your favorite home-cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen, updated with all new stainless steel appliances, a Bosch dishwasher, convection oven, refrigerator, microwave, crock pot and French press coffeemaker - you'll find some of the best coffee in Missoula within a 1-block radius. Caffé Dolche is a local favorite for coffee and great food! Should you need to do laundry during your stay, feel free to utilize the provided high-end energy efficient washer and dryer inside the house. Enjoy your downtime by watching the programming of your choice on the living room’s flat screen TV with cable and Blu-ray/DVD player, listening to music on the wireless Bose wireless speaker, or surf the web via the complimentary wireless internet access, or just soaking in the clawfoot tub. Unwind outside on the home’s lovely flagstone patio in back (with new gas BBQ), surrounded by beautiful gardens with native plants and culinary herbs for your use, or on the cozy screened-in sitting porch. Sit back on the Adirondack chairs, relax, and simply relish in this wonderfully private, secluded, and oh-so-cozy atmosphere!

This bungalow is a perfect home base for a variety of all community activities. It is within nearby walking distance of the University -- only about 3-4 blocks from Grizzly and other university activities. Take advantage of Missoula's outstanding farmer's markets and Out To Lunch at Caras Park. Missoula is also a great place to tube, fly fish, float and raft on the 3 rivers close by, mountain bike, and enjoy numerous other outdoor recreational activities. With the community being very bike and dog-friendly, bicycles are offered at the house for guest use! Additionally, Missoula is known for its breweries, and you'll find several close by such as the Kettlehouse - a local favorite. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time in Montana and no matter what season you plan to visit, you will surely enjoy this bungalow!

Charming Bungalow with Exceptional Location and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this bungalow and its owner. The house is charming and makes great use of small square footage. It is extremely comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and you feel like "a local" within a short period. There is more than adequate closet and drawer space even for a long stay. Unlike most hotels there were plenty of hangars. The large tub in the bathroom is terrific as are all of the toiletries that Beth supplies. Appliances are brand new and the kitchen had every kind of equipment you could ask for, including full size washer and dryer. All pots and pans were like new. The backyard sitting area is ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine or beer at the end of the day. The BBQ grill is a plus so you don't have to go out to eat if you don't want to. Almost every good restaurant in Missoula is within walking distance. Two bicycles are provided with bike helmets so you can totally enjoy Missoula's exceptional bike trails. Beth is a great hostess. We will be back.

Our stay at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in September at this wonderful craftsman cottage in Missoula. Our first perception was that it was kept true to the period in which is was built. There were updates in the kitchen and bathroom that added to the comfort. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed including coffee! The beds were very comfortable! Most of all it was spotlessly clean!

The owner offered many ideas of things to do, places to go and information about the town.

We would definitely stay there again when we visit Missoula next time.

We spent a long weekend in the home for a fishing trip. Excellent location close to everything. We were able to walk to dinner and the Griz game. Very clean and comfortable home. Would stay again.

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the bungalow while preparing our son for his freshman year at UM. The home was beautifully maintain and sufficiently stocked with everything you would need to cook all your meals. The owners Beth and Tim even left some very yummy chocolates and flowers for our arrival. The home is close walking proximity to UM & downtown Missoula. Best yet, very nice walk to The Big Dipper! Thought we did not make sufficient use of the garden, it is absolutely beautiful! The neighbors are quiet and friendly. Parking was never an issue even though this property does not have a driveway. We just parked on the street in front of the house or just across the street. If I had any questions during my stay, Beth answered my text in a timely manner. Beth was a life saver during our stay with her many suggestions of places to eat, shop and have fun at. Thank, thank you for sharing your home with us! I only wish it was available during family weekend in October!

Beautiful Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was really perfect. Every item was supplied, the house was immaculate, and the neighborhood was very nice. The management company, Evolve, was completely on top of everything. I love it when I can just book a place and not have to worry about waiting for approval or a reply from the owner. This was just done, approved, confirmed. I think many people dont realize that travelers are trying to juggle flight plans and such.

The owner of the property was very, very "particular". We were met at the bungalow and were given an intensive breakdown of the do's and don't's of the house. The owner went over a 4 page list of instructions. This included: No shoes in the house, not to get mascara on the towels, be careful with the shower head in the tub, the composition and care of the kitchen countertop, care of the stovetop, suggested positioning of blinds in the front room, function of the hot water heater, etc., etc. After a day or so she called to let us know that she had noticed another car in front of the house. She said it may be a neighbor and she would try to contact them if it was a bother. Before we left she contacted us again to ensure we aware of the correct check out time and the requirements of the check out "checklist" that she had supplied when we arrived. This included things like stripping the beds and pillowcases and placing them down in the laundry room, taking out the trash, cleaing out the refrigerator, etc. She seems like a very nice person, and she has a beautiful bungalow; so I understand that she is concerned that it is well cared for, but it was a little over-the-top for me.

Owner's Response: Bruce, Thanks for your online review and your kind comments in the welcome book at the house. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the bungalow! Evolve prides itself on having exceptional and meticulously run properties. To meet the needs of a variety of travelers and ensure a great stay for all, the bungalow owners give all their renters a short tour of the house to familiarize them with where things are and how some items work. They also provide a list, "Things to know about the House," that includes details and tips on many household items and information for checkout. It is meant to be a reference guide that travelers to date have found very useful. The owner also goes over some of these specifics with the traveler in case they have any questions, which many have. We recognize that not all travelers like yourself may need this information, but others have found it helpful. Again, we are pleased you enjoyed the house! The Evolve Team
