Overview

About the property

One Bedroom Lower-Level Walk-out Garden Apartment With Private Patio

The Garden City Guest House is nestled in the quiet Rose Park residential neighborhood just blocks from many services, including City parks, free Mountain Line Bus, the University of Montana and Montana College. This spacious, private, and well-maintained guest house is within walking distance of shopping, dining, sports venues, fitness centers, trails, child care, post office and library, churches, fairgrounds, and many more community and commercial centers. It is also a short distance from most Missoula-area outdoor and tourist destinations. If you point to the center of a City of Missoula map, you would likely find you’ve landed on our special guest house—open year-round, perfect for a weekend getaway or a longer stay.

The guest house is a garden apartment on the lower level of a single family home. The owner and family live on the upper two floors of this newly-remodeled, vintage 1940’s home. We would like you to feel right at home during your stay at the Garden City Guest House and will do whatever we can to ensure your visit is relaxing and memorable. The guest house is thoughtfully furnished and stocked with many family-friendly touches of home, including books, movies, games, puzzles, and more.

The guest house has been furnished to create a healthy, serene, and peaceful environment for your stay. The guest house will only be rented to non-smokers - no exceptions. The 650-square foot guest house can accommodate two people comfortably, and will sleep up to four people in one queen bed and one queen sleeper sofa. The bedroom is comfortably furnished with a queen size bed, bedside tables, shelves, and a five-drawer dresser inside a spacious walk-in closet. You’ll find a 6’ couch in the living room which folds out into a very comfortable queen size memory foam sleeper. All linens are provided. The full bathroom has all new fixtures and furnishings including a tub and spacious tiled shower, an ultra quiet bath fan, and brand new washer/dryer. All flooring is new, including plush carpet in the bedroom.

The kitchen is well-equipped and furnished with all new stainless steel kitchen appliances, including a full-size smooth-top electric cookstove and oven, an 18” “silent” (46 DBA) dishwasher, and a French-door refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser. You’ll also find a microwave, coffee maker, Keurig and K-cups, juicer, blender, toaster, an easy-to-clean granite composite sink with electric disposal, and many other features to make your dining-in experience easy and convenient.

The guest house is a non-smoking establishment with all the modern amenities such as cable on a 42” flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and free wi-fi internet. This walk-out garden apartment was designed with a distinctive separate entry that feels like home, a 100 square foot private patio with BBQ grill and shaded seating, a large garden area, and free off-street parking well lit for safety and convenience.

You’ll find lots of light in this newly redone guest house, accented by stylish mahogany trimmed windows. The daylight design allows the guest house to stay cool, even on the hottest days. For cooler nights, stay comfortable with an electric fireplace, insulated windows, and cozy furnishings. Wall heaters create the perfect temperature in each room utilizing separately zoned thermostats.

We also want to provide you with every opportunity to live sustainably, even while on vacation, if you should choose. We have provided equipment such as a compost bin, plastic bag dryer, recycle bin, laundry washing ball, and energy efficient appliances. We converted the fenced-in rear yard to a water-wise landscape, and the garden setting is representative of the intermountain west grasslands. We maintain several fruit trees on the property—plum, pear, apple, and cherry—and our guests are free to make use of any fruit in season.

SO MUCH BETTER THAN A HOTEL!

  • 5 of 5

The Garden City Guest House is without doubt the best place I've ever had the good fortune to rent. The owner did a great job designing and finishing the space so that it is functional and spacious, but also attractive and homey. Tons of amenities in the bath and kitchen make the place even better. (Things like good shampoo, Q-tips and tissues, kitchen gadgets and appliances, spices and other pantry staples [a lot more than you would expect!], fresh eggs....but also things you might need but didn't bring, like an umbrella, extra tote bags, etc.)

The owner also did a great job making sure we'd know everything we needed to know to park, get into the house, operate stuff in the house, etc. Communicated well and enough that we knew we could rely on her for advice/meeting our needs, without overdoing it.

On top of all that, the backyard gardens were beautiful and so pleasant to walk through on our way in and out of the property. We definitely found ourselves glad to have at least one day that we could spend mostly "at home" so we could really enjoy the place.

You will not be sorry if you rent this place! I have been to Missoula twice before, and very happily stayed with relatives both times. This time we were in town for a wedding, and other folks were staying with the relatives. It will be a hard choice to make on the next trip, because this place is so great!!

My first reaction was...wow!

  • 5 of 5

I could live here. Delightfully decorated, comfortably furnished and extremely well equipped and maintained for a vacation rental. Missoula seems to have a lot to offer for outdoor enthusiasts. Unfortunately, wildfires in the area led to our decision to shorten our stay.so we didn't get to do as much in the area as we would have liked. We did manage to take a nice evening walk along Rattlesnake Creek Trail and we managed to do a couple nearby hikes the next morning before the smoke rolled back in. We would love to visit again someday and definitely would stay here again.

An amazing guest house!

  • 5 of 5

The guest house afforded us privacy and quiet along with an opportunity to visit with my parents who were staying elsewhere. We bbq'd one evening and sat on the lower patio. What a great location in town and space. Thank you to Jennie and Isabella!

Charming property

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this property more than once now and the experience has been enjoyable. This place is in a great neighborhood close to everything. Jennie takes great care of the place, which is evident by the meticulously landscaped backyard. Very cosy to sit out on the patio chairs on a warm evening with a glass of wine to enjoy the end of the day. Everything you need is here and it beats a hotel room hands down. If you're one that likes a nice hot shower with great water pressure, you'll find it here. We highly recommend this place and will stay here again.
