Our bright and cheery river cottage sits just 50' from the East Fork of the Bitterroot River. Come and enjoy the luxury of your own fishing hole and relax in the private treed setting.

This one bedroom home is newly renovated and completely outfitted for your comfort. A futon is provided for an extra double bed, sleeping a total of four people. The covered porch facing the river provides a great outdoor living space. Its location near the southern end of the Bitterroot Valley makes this home a recreationist's dream.

The Bitterroot River is nationally famous for its tremendous fishing. Wilderness areas and National Forest lands surround. The area is home to majestic peaks, crystal clear streams and abundant wildlife. From rugged to well groomed, hiking possibilities abound. About 20 miles to the south is Lost Trail ski area which is open Thursday - Sunday during the ski season. Lost Trail offers lifts and a pleasant skiing opportunity without the crowds. Chief Joseph pass has an extensive network of groomed cross country trails and is right next to Lost Trail. You can also have a swim in the warm pool at Lost Trail Hot Springs which is right on the way.

But with the river just a stone's throw away from your back door, you may be tempted to spend all of your time right here at home. We think you'll agree that our river cottage is an accommodation that IS the destination.

So give us a call, pack your bags and come enjoy all that Western Montana has to offer.
