Overview

Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday lodge in Missoula - Montana River Lodge

Lodge, 8 Bedrooms, 6 baths + Bunk House, (Sleeps 30-40)

Montana River Lodge is a wonderful facility available to couples, families, or large groups by reservation. We are located on 25 acres of Clark Fork river frontage completely surrounded by state forest. A wide array of activities and an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful beauty of Western Montana awaits you. The lodge overlooks a spectacular river setting with great fishing, swimming, volleyball, and a huge bonfire area.

Fishing at the lodge uniquely combines terrific trout size in good numbers and very low fishing pressure. Our easement provides private access to over two miles of rarely fished trophy trout stream. Rainbow, Cutthroat, Brown, and Bull trout average 15 to 20 inches with some over ten pounds.

The beach has several sandbars, a perfect spot to sunbathe while the kids play in the river. Have you ever tried gold panning? The beach has some 'color' that is fun to swirl in a pan and gives you the feeling of a 'gold rush'. Eagles and osprey often soar over the river pool formed by the cliffs on the shore across from the lodge. Watch them swoop down on an unsuspecting trout.

The open hillsides on the mountains across the river provide opportunities to see deer and elk through a spotting scope or binoculars. Get a magnified view of the eagles and osprey as they perch in the trees or in nearby nests. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of forest with endless miles of trails and roads for secluded walking and riding, and the river provides miles of amazing fishing and floating pleasure. Just 40 miles west of Missoula, we provide a spacious, secluded, and private atmosphere for those looking to get away or just relax in an enviornment of cozy comfort. Let us know how we can make your vacation a truly memorable experience.

About The Owner

We designed and built the lodge in 2002 and operated a teen home for 9 years. In our design and western decor we have incorporated our interest in fishing, hunting and the Montana outdoor experience.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2002

Why The Owner chose Missoula

While floating the river one day, we found this amazing setting on the famous Alberton Gorge whitewater canyon. The undeveloped site was completely surrounded by hundreds of acres of state forest offering the ultimate in privacy in our end of road location. The forest around us is closed to automotive use, resulting in a nature preserve offering quiet walks, mountain biking, horseback riding, snowshoeing, or x-country skiing. The scenic setting is simply stunning. Guests repeatedly tell us the views of the river and mountains result in relaxation and rejuvination. We watch eagles and osprey gliding over the river from our deck daily. The river allows an amazing assortment of water sports including fishing, rafting, kayaking, swimming, tubing, and boating. The natural flat below the lodge made a perfect area for our sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, sports field, bath house, and bonfire ring. The large lawn areas overlooking the river are available for events such as outdoor weddings.

What makes this lodge unique

There is a fruit orchard and berry patch with raspberries and strawberries for snacking. We have several tubes and life jackets for enjoying the river. There is a 14 foot self-bailing raft, float tubes, and a one man pontoon raft available for rental.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Our family really enjoyed the chance to get away and do some fishing this summer. Their lodge had plenty of bedrooms for all 12 of us, and we were very happy with our stay.
We did run short of towels, but if you bring extras you should be fine. Otherwise you end up doing laundry every other day.
Our family really had fun at Lolo Hot Springs in Missoula, and our favorite restaurant was the OK Cafe in St. Regis.

Fabulous Hideaway with Every Vacation Amenity Except Scuba Diving!!

  • 5 out of 5
Although there were only four of us in the party, we had a relaxing, wonderful vacation, "getting away from it all." Played horseshoes on the full sized, dual pits, volleyball, hiking, rafting, horse back riding, poker at night, etc. We are not fishermen, but evidently the river offers world-class fishing. If you want huge (sleeps 30), quiet, yet plenty of room for gargantuan weddings, family reunions, fishing groups, this is the place.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
The location of this house is a perfect place to gather with family and friends. It had all the amenities needed to host 16 of us for a family wedding. We had a great time gathering for meals and the layout of the kitchen dining area gave everyone plenty of space to gather and prepare. Fishing was enjoyed as well as walking along the river enjoying the serene setting in the mountains.
Highly recommended

Great Location!

  • 5 out of 5
Every year I organize a trip for a group of friends who get together to enjoy fishing, golfing, and dining and we select a different location every year. Of all the places we have stayed over the years, this is by far the best! Wonderful scenery, solitude, and accommodations. I would recommend this to any fisherman or to any family who just wants to get away and relax.

WOW WHAT A GREAT PLACE FOR MAKING MEMORIES

  • 5 out of 5
Great place to gather for our family. Had tons of room for everyone to sleep, eat, shower and adventure.
Didn't know what to expect with kitchen supplies and was very happy with everything. Thanks to the owner for sharing your beautiful place with us. It will be something our grandkids will never forget. We had a great time and would love to do it again sometime. It was so nice to be away from everything but have everything to make our stay so comfortable.

Amazing! Comfortable, relaxing, stunning!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had a long weekend get away at this wonderful house. Not only was the setting stunning, the house is decorated with some really interesting antiques.
The grounds are wonderful to walk on, there is an orchard where the birds love to hang out. There is a large field, suitable for a large gathering. There is a wonderful bonfire area stocked with wood.
It is drivable down to the river (4 wheel drive suggested). The beach area is awesome for kids. There is some great sand for playing in. And of course some great fishing.

There is a lot to do. Horseshoes, volleyball, football, ping pong, board games, and relaxing.

The owner was a pleasure to work with.
Thanks for sharing your home. Another wonderful VBRO!!

Our lodge is located 40 miles from Missoula, at the Tarkio Exit 61, about 1 mile off of I-90 on the Clark Fork River. There is excellent fishing on our property and on the river above and below us. The Alberton Gorge is a very popular class 3 whitewater stretch that ends just upstream from the lodge. A thrilling ride awaits the adventurer on a raft ,kayak, or bogieboard. The section of river from the lodge downriver is perfect for gentle floating on a raft, canoeing or tubing. We are surrounded by state and national forest lands, and there are numerous trails for hiking, horseback riding, mountain bikes, ATVs or even snowshoeing in the winter. Our beach is the ultimate swimming hole or the pefect place for a sunny afternoon nap. Mountain bikes are available at Lookout Pass for touring the famous Hiawatha Trail thru tunnels and over trestles. The National Bison Range is a favorite day trip. The nearby historic Jesuit Mission has amazing frescos and an informative history of early mission work among the local native tribes. But above all else, the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery is the highlight of all these activities.
