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.

Jenni Rohrbach purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jenni Rohrbach chose Riverfront

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

The Babs is one of Missoula’s premiere historic buildings. Located near several of Missoula’s gems including downtown, the Kim Williams trail and the University, visitors can easily walk or bike to restaurants, shopping, bars, and hiking trails. Not to mention the best ice cream (The Big Dipper), pastries (Le Petite) and beer (Kettle House) are just around the corner. In addition, the condo itself is fully stocked with the comforts of home including a full-kitchen, children’s amenities (pack n’ play, high chair, books and toys as well as eating utensils) and king-size temperpedic bed. The Babs also offers a rec room with pool table and a garden area with a Viking grill available for guest use.

Great spot in the heart of Missoula

  • 5 of 5

Missoula never disappoints and the more we're out and about, the more we enjoy our visits. This condo facilitates that beautifully. It's well situated and appointed. Ample parking in a location convenient to the primary roads. Yet the big from porch is a nice, relaxing place to watch the passersby. The owner is very responsive and helpful. The first level means occasional late night "entertainment" from the not-so-clever souls walking across the parking lot next door. But they are harmless, pass quickly and what else would you expect in spot close to the center of a university town?

The Best VRBO in Missoula!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best VRBO in Missoula. The condo location is perfect with a short walk to everything in downtown. The living space is large and has a great kitchen. We have stayed in this unit three times and plan to return again.

Great Location, Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Babs Condo! The condo is clean, well supplied, and very quiet, even though it is close to busy Higgins Avenue. The age of the building and the well kept historic features add to the charm. Jenni and Kurt are always prompt in responding to emails and calls. My husband and I love to walk and were able to walk to most of the activities we did, from the university to downtown. In addition, there is a great local cinema, well known ice cream store, bakeries, coffee shops, local bookstore and restaurants within two blocks. A short walk across the Higgins bridge takes you to downtown Missoula, where there is so much to see and do. The river trails nearby let you explore Missoula both to the East and West. We certainly plan to stay here again.

GREAT APARTMENT IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is within walking distance of great restaurants, the downtown core and the university. The apartment itself is in a historic building that has been beautifully restored. The apartment is tastefully remodeled and being a corner unit, has lots of natural light. The place is well appointed with everything you need to prepare meals, enjoy technology or just relax. The bed is new and very comfortable, with soft sheets and great pillows. A winner.
