Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Missoula

JANUARY NOTES: Again we're reminded of how wonderful and variable the riverside view is. Each day the resident Blue Heron stands patiently at the edge of an ice floe. With patience of your own, you'll spot his successful feed. In between is Caras Park, featuring Bald Eagles on a convenient perch. Perhaps best of all is the drama of changing ice and water channels as temperatures dip below freezing. Nature lovers: it's a great time to book and you'll stay toasty from your perch in 501.

Part art gallery; part modern big city-loft; part trip back to the Deco era of Edna Wilma’s reign in her namesake, the historic Wilma Theatre.

Old walls came down in our recent remodel of this river view condo at the Wilma. What has emerged in their place is open space, Deco angles and plenty of artful detail: yacht-like mahogany cabinetry, venetian plaster, restored original terrazzo floors, Deco crown-moulding and authentic ceiling papers, Red-Dragon granite, 1930’s light fixtures and more. Historic restoration is juxtaposed with modern convenience: WIFI, satellite radio, surround sound and HDTV, air conditioning.

THE LIVINGROOM invites connection and conversation with its comfortable leather furniture, electric fireplace, and full-length window seat above the park and river. Designer lightening offers many options for creating a mood or for highlighting art. The well-appointed kitchen sits at center, reminiscent of a theatre entrance and marquee. As Alice Waters suggests: “Good food begins with good ingredients” and as our guest, you’re steps from Missoula’s Farmer’s Market and fresh, local produce.

THE BEDROOM: Serene, plush, elegant. The comfortable bed is dressed with fine linens. Your bedside view includes: Deco papers, theatre curtains, original 1930’s art and floor-to-ceiling display shelves of artifacts. Infinite space is created by a mirrored vanity room to the side, featuring a floating reverse-painted glass counter, and a surprising double view of Mount Sentinel.

THE BATHROOM: Is restored to offer modern convenience and comfort. The highlight is the walk in shower with two heads, one overhead and one on the wall.

THE ART: Rare and original art is provided by Eccentric Books and Images for your pleasure. Descriptions of the pieces and their historical significance are provided. Some pieces are available for sale upon request.

THE SETTING: The historic Wilma theatre building sits at the center of Missoula’s downtown. Our town is well known for its diverse cultural and outdoor experiences, as well as its natural beauty. Much of this is within walking distance from the condo. And view is best summarized by a recent guest: “More extravagant than I expected!”

**Please check out our other two listings: #341660 an 8th floor river view condo in the Wilma and #184692 a three bedroom home on the great trout fishery Rock Creek; (about 90 miles from Missoula).

Terrific location, great views, nicely appointed.... with some fixable flaws

  • 3 of 5

First, the pros:

* Location is central in downtown to the waterfront, restaurants, hotels, shopping, etc.

* Parking space provided is closeby and very convenient

* The building is an historic landmark that has visible signs of re-investment and upkeep everywhere you look

* The unit itself is bright, spacious, nicely decorated and clean

* The corner location offers superb north and west views of the surrounding city and mountains

* Toiletry items, dishware, wifi, Satellite TV, coffee & tea, etc.

Cons:

* The bedroom closet is tiny --- hanging anything longer than a sport coat will drag on top of the drawers

* The hangers provided are sleek stainless steel ---- our clothes kept falling off of them

* There is no door to the bedroom --- it has been removed from the hinges --- seriously impedes privacy, sound, and light blocking during sleep

* The window blinds are translucent, not opaque --- when that bright early morning mountain sun rises, so do you

* Could not figure out how to hook up an iPod to the stereo system --- I travel with my own cords but couldn't find a port

* There is a keypad on the unit door, a key code for the elevator, AND AN ACTUL LOCKSET KEY FOR TO ENTER THE BUILDING ITSELF. My wife and I accidentally left our key inside the unit one evening, and upon our return that night were locked outside the building for ~2 hours. The number provided by the owners went un-answered and just as we gave up hope and started to prepare to sleep in our car, thankfully a resident from another unit walked past and let us in around 2am

THIS IS A MAJOR FLAW THAT ALMOST RUINED OUR STAY --- the building entrance doors need keypads as well!!!

We never heard back from the owners regarding our multiple messages ( we were getting pretty distressed when we were leaving them ) and I wonder if the number provided was even valid --- it just kept going straight to a voice mail box....

Elegant condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed two nights in this beautiful Wilma condo. The views are fantastic and the location is truly in the heart of Missoula - walking distance to restaurants, live music, movies, shops, the University District, and the Clark Fork River. We were there in January and had everything we needed to cook and enjoy watching the snow fall. The owner dropped by to help make up the couch for our son to sleep on, drop off extra towels and later to inform us of a live concert in town. He is so helpful and available. The condo itself is elegant. The owners have spared no expense and attended to every detail of lighting, furnishings, art, and décor. I do not recommend young children given there are antiques. This condo is best suited for a couple who loves to be pampered and surrounded by beauty - you'll find it here!

Artfully CoZy

  • 5 of 5

We just had a most fabulous winter vacation stationed at the historic and artful Wilma building in downtown Missoula. This particular unit is absolutely wonderful and the owners are very responsive to all your needs. Anything we asked for in terms of little things that came up for us got immediately resolved. The art and original building materials as well as the keeping of the unit both in-line with the period but with all the modern convenience made is giddy in our home away from home for 10 days. We are at Scotty's Table and enjoyed the fare and also used the spa - which is within the building. Stephanie at the spa is fabulous and very knowledgable on skin and nails. We enjoyed all the best neighborhood food at Plonk, Liquid Planet, The Good Food Store, and Iza. The views are stunning and we WILL be back!!

Love the Wilma Building!

  • 5 of 5

We are making it our mission to stay at all the possible condos within the Wilma Building. So far this has been our favorite! Absolutely beautiful! Owners had showed us this condo on one of our previous stays, we were lucky enough to stay in it. The Wilma is the perfect location to all that you need for a visit to Missoula. Great restaurants, shopping, hiking and a Farmers Market to die for! We love it here and can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Our guests love the magical views of the Clark Fork River from our condo during the winter months ...large sheets of ice flowing past snow blanketed banks of the river and over Brennan's Wave...while in the warm comfort of our condo. Thank you for the kind review and have a wonderful and prosperous New Year.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed, attention to every detail. Stunning bedroom (fabrics, draperies, comfortable bed and unique ceiling fan). Huge kitchen well stocked with all the essentials. Quality linens and bathroom towels. Awesome views of the river, the M, surrounding city and mountains.

Owner took the time to stop by and personally notify us of the ongoing construction (which was not an issue) in the building.

The only caveat, as with all Wilma condos, loud music from Caras Park night time events and street noise makes its way in.

Perfect Missoula Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this well appointed, beautiful condo could not be better! It's a wonderful place to enjoy the very best of Missoula. Sunsets are spectacular and the River Walk is right out the door. Restaurnants, coffee shops, regular shopping are all very convenient. The owners provided very clear instructions and wonderful information about the art hanging in the condo. The parking spot was a real plus! I look forward to staying here again when I visit my children.
