Imagine sitting at your dining room table viewing an eagle perched high in a tree, a raccoon fishing in the river, and deer grazing in the lawn. Riverside Retreat will offer you this and much more! Our large home is ideal for those vacationers who are looking for a peaceful setting yet the convenience of town nearby. Less than one mile off Highway 83 on the south side of town, Riverside Retreat is a spacious 4500 square foot home sitting on 2 acres edged by the Clearwater River. Over-sized windows throughout allow for scenic views of the mountains, the river, and ample opportunity for wildlife viewing. The covered deck is private, relaxing, and a great place to end your day!

The heart of Seeley Lake is only minutes from your front door. This quaint town has shopping, restaurants, a children’s playground, and the beautiful Seeley Lake. Outdoor enthusiasts will be thrilled with the extensive opportunities our mountain community offers: boating, fishing, hiking, bird watching, ATVing, golfing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice-fishing, snowshoeing and more! Beyond our town it is only a day-trip to tour Glacier National Park, Garnet Ghost Town, or the city of Missoula.

So whether you are looking for a restful, relaxing get-away or an outdoor adventure, Riverside Retreat is the perfect setting for you and your family. If your dates are unavailable, please check our our sister house, Riverside Hideaway, just a few houses down in the same beautiful neighborhood. Come see us and enjoy the beauty of Western Montana.

About Pam

My husband and I have been residents of Seeley Lake for 15 years, but Trace grew up in Missoula and is a true mountain boy. Trace built this lovely home, and it is ideal for family. The neighborhood is a pleasant surprise sitting on a ridge, hidden from town. We love all the fun activities available here as well as just relaxing by the river reading a book. Over the years we have enjoyed friends and family visiting to sharing our piece of heaven and decided to open this opportunity to others through a vacation rental. We have found the small-town atmosphere and family-oriented activities appeal to all ages from preschoolers and teens to grandparents. We hope your family will enjoy your time here.

Pam purchased this house in 2007

Why Pam chose Montana

We live in Seeley Lake and feel truly lucky to have all the beauty and adventure of the outdoors at our fingertips. When family and friends visit they always rant and rave on what a wonderful time they have enjoying the area and serenity of our riverside home. We look forward to allowing other families experience the beauty of Western Montana.

What makes this house unique

We thoroughly enjoy the quietness of the neighborhood with fantastic views of the mountains and the sound of the river flowing through the backyard. Whitetail deer are more frequent than household pets, and it's a joy to watch the baby fawns frolic on the riverside in the summer. In the winter, snowmobiling trails are accessible from the driveway, and extensive cross-country ski trails are minutes away.

Absolutely perfect in all ways!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not begin to express how happy I am with this vacation rental! Everything about it is perfect! We were married in Missoula and brought our family of 5 and with 4 more family members meeting us here there was MORE than enough room for everybody! The sense of peace and tranquility is overwhelming! Our most frequent visitors were the deer grazing in both the front yard and in back playing by the river. Don't let the thought of having no cable t.v. be a deterrent either, who needs t.v. when you have all that beauty out every door and window? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this rental to anyone wanting to experience what the beauty of Montana has to offer. We will be back and next time in the winter!! We are moving back to Montana and my new bride is in love with the area and this home, so a winter snowmobile vacation is in our plans!

Thank you Pam and Trace for sharing your slice of heaven with us!!!!

Michael and Tara Edwards.

San Juan Capistrano, California

Breathtaking Views From Every Window And Doorway

  • 5 of 5

Think about getting away and looking around you and seeing deers and their fawns grazing in the grass. Watching your family in complete comfort and bliss, Pam and Trace have be gracious enough to share this piece of Heaven with people who should and need to experience such beauty. Words can't express how much we fell in love with this masterpiece built with love. My Husband and I got married in Missoula on July 10th and this house was perfect for us to spend time some quiet one on one bonding time with our friends and family from Montana. We live in a desired town called San Juan Capistrano, in Orange County California and are dreaming and planning on moving to Montana. Thank you Pam & Trace

*For those who are looking for TV, we brought our Chromecast and it worked great. You can stream movies from Netflix and YouTube linking to the WiFi... You won't even want to watch TV with all the nature surround you. 🌲

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights at Riverside Retreat and what a great time! The house is absolutely beautiful, very large, new, extremely clean with thoughtful touches for travelers, and has amazing views from inside of the house! The owner was very friendly and helpful.

We did not choose to experience any of the nearby restaurants but did spend some time canoeing on Seeley Lake and enjoyed shopping in town, which is conveniently a minute away. I would definately rent this home again if I return to Seeley Lake!

Two adults and two teens

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a spectacular view. It was very comfortable and had many extras like an outdoor fire circle for a campfire. The home is very spacious and the teens enjoyed having their own living space in the basement. This is a great property to enjoy outdoor activities. We had a great time staying here!!

Memorial Weekend with Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Riverside Retreat! The home was plenty spacious for our family of 8. We spent most of our time in the over sized living room enjoying the view and occasional wildlife. Pam and her family could not have been any more friendly and helpful. This home was a great stay for our relaxing trip!
