About Jenni Rohrbach
Missoula, as for many people, is a special place to us. It is where we met as students in college and where we always knew we wanted to call home. After school, however, life and work took us to Asia, Finland and New York City, before we could both settle back in Missoula together and start our family. Now with our daughter Maija, we are pleased to share all that the Missoula community has to offer with visitors at our Bab’s condo.

Why Jenni Rohrbach chose Missoula
Jenni first came to Missoula as an exchange student attending grad school from Finland. She immediately fell in love with the surrounding landscape and community but most of all Kurt. Kurt’s family is from the area and always knew the Montana lifestyle was the only one for him. They both enjoy the outdoor and cultural opportunities Missoula has to offer including skiing up Pattee Canyon, taking their daughter Maija to Missoula’s award winning Children’s Theater or enjoying Missoula’s restaurants, breweries and distilleries. They feel fortunate to call Missoula home and are pleased to share their love of the area with each of their guests.
What makes this apartment unique

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful week in Missoula and this place proved to be perfect base to explore all. We came from Vermont to get my daughter settled in at college and my top priority was walkability. Favorite finds were Le Petit Outre across the street with bread as good as anywhere in France and Cafe Dolce on Brooks street. The apartment fit our needs perfectly and reminded me of an earlier life in Portland Oregon, and fed my yearning for a simpler life.
