About Linda

We are a married couple with three grown children, currently spliting our time between California and Montana.

Linda purchased this house in 2010

Why Linda chose Montana

We spent our first few years as a married couple in Montana and we couldn't wait to return to this beautiful area for our retirement. We enjoy fishing and the outdoors but we also wanted to be walking distance to other activities that the town of Ennis has to offer. We rent out this property when we aren't there to help fuel our dream of someday returning to Montana in our retirment.

What makes this house unique

We hope that you enjoy the quiet tranquility of life on the river. While also taking advantage of the many wonderful treats that Ennis has to offer, everything from community events like the annual rodeo and fly fishing festivals, to the shopping, entertainment and yummy local eats.

We fell in the love with the charm of Ennis and the undescribeable beauty of Montana. And we hope you will too!

Beautiful well-kept house on a beautiful river

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well-maintained. The owners live next door and could have not been more helpful but never intrusive. We loved the place and the setting is beautiful. Beautiful sunrises came over the mountains and illuminated the beautiful Madison river. The hosts who live next door are wonderful people and helpful if anything is needed. Ennis is a great little town, near trout fishing rivers and Yellowstone.

A little piece of heaven, on the beautiful Madison River.

  • 5 of 5

As always, the Chirdon house is all we could hope for and more. It's better than owning a second home, because we don't worry about the upkeep, taxes, etc. The Chirdon's are super landlords.... respect our privacy... but are there if something needs their attention. We intend to keep coming back to Ennis for a long time. The accommodations, the fishing, the scenery, the weather... all first rate.

Love the fact that this property is right on the river directly across from the Ennis take out on the river. The house is cute and cozy. Comfortable beds. Very clean! All bedding and towels etc...washed and sanitized even if they look clean after each customer!!!! Nice big windows overlooking the river. Lots of windows that open for cross breezes and cooling the house. Washer and dryer on premises. Full size kitchen appliances and dishwasher! Beautiful hardwood floors. Deck overlooking the river and a fire pit that you can use. Owner allows you to use their yard also, clear down to the river. Owners are very nice and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again!

Our main focus was the river as we like fishing, but the town has lots of fun shops and restaurants for those who like shopping!

Beautiful location on the shores of the Madison and 3 blocks from Main Street Ennis

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property while in Enjis to fish the Madison a few years ago and returned last week. It's very comfortable, well appointed and well maintained. We'll look forward to our next opportunity to rent this property.

The best kind of vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent our usual long time at "The Chirdon House", and can't wait to get back next year.

It's all good: the view of river and mountains, the accomodations, the walking distance to Ennis, while still very private, the fishing, and so on. Our only complaint from last year was eliminated when the WiFi signal appeared strong and clear on our devices this year. It's "a little piece of heaven" on the Madison.
