Rustic cabin experience

  • 4 of 5

This rustic little house right by the river was a nice little place for my family to get together. It was nice that it had two living rooms because the older kids could play video games and one will the adults could talk in the other. The kitchen was huge and it was nice that it was attached to the dining room. We spent a lot of time in that room. The views are beautiful and it's close enough to town to be very convenient to the airport and to the local amenities.

Great venue!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my middle son's wedding and I had all my children together for a week. We floated from the back yard daily, had a great gathering of over 30 people for a wonderful dinner and this property could not have been any better for our event. Libby and her dad were great to work with!

Warm, comfy, and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The house was well maintained, clean, and warm. We stayed over Christmas week-end, when it was cold and lots of snow. The boiler for the heater worked well! The property manager must have plowed out the drive way on the last day. We had 5 vehicles in the parking area, which was a tight squeeze, but did work. The kitchen and dining area was large enough for all of us to prepare a family meal. There is a sitting room upstairs and a tv room downstairs. Both are large enough to fit all of us, but it was nice to be able spread out. The property is right on the river and was quiet and peaceful. The only drawback was the hot tub would not stay hot! A pleasant bonus was the manager left us some holiday treats when we checked in.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear about the hot tub. It has a standard, sleep and economy setting. If either of the latter settings are activated, the hot tub stays at 85 degrees. We would have loved to have the opportunity to come out and fix the setting. I am so happy that you were able to enjoy the rest of what this beautiful home has to offer. It was a pleasure hosting your family for the holidays. For future guests, please don't hesitate to call when issues arise.

Good but some things need to be said.....June 2016

  • 4 of 5

June 2016

Let us start by saying that we really did like this place....what we would consider a very nice, rustic fishing cabin. The location on the water is incredible. The size was great for 2 medium sized familes and it was quite clean. But here are a few things you should know and a few suggestions for the owners/rental management company:

1. It is located directly across the river from train tracks. This means that several times each night, the train rolls through and blasts it's horn. Because you're in a canyon, it's VERY loud. I don't think anyone could not be startled out of their sleep.

2. It is located very close to the Interstate 90 freeway - like, less than 100 m from the front of the house. There is a lot of traffic noise that is audible as well.

3. There is no air conditioning (which, hey, it's a rustic fishing cabin) so if you're there during a hot spell like we were (over 90 degrees F for 3 days in a row) the upstairs is almost unbearably warm and difficult to sleep in (that's the room with 2 queen beds and a bunk bed).

OK, other than that, it really is a good place to stay. Now, for the owners/rental management company:

1. If people are coming in for a short stay, and presumably they're staying there so they can prepare their own meals rather than eat out every night, it would be good if you could provide some basic cooking essentials: several spices (more than the 2 salt and pepper shakers) such as garlic salt, etc, cooking oil, and general cleaning supplies like All Purpose Cleaner for counter tops and tables. Also, there were no matches/lighter for the barbeque.

2. It would also be a basic touch to provide small quantities of shampoo and shower soap - people shouldn't have to transport their own from where ever they're coming from.

Thanks for letting us stay at your place. We really enjoyed Missoula and the great fishing the area has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such good care of the home. We have a lot of pride in this property. Because we are a fairly new vacation rental (still operating for less than a year), we depend heavily on the feedback from our renters. There is shampoo and body wash in both bathrooms but perhaps was difficult to find next to the towels in the cabinet and, I apologize for that. We don't keep it in the shower as many of our guests choose to bring their own. The multi-purpose cleaner must have been removed or misplaced, which happens occasionally so we have a large supply of back up bottles in the storage room, which I will access for the next group. I try to reiterate to our renters that there is no request too small to warrant a phone call to us as we are minutes away. John and I pride ourselves in our response time and care for our renters and wish that we could have had the opportunity to bring out items like lighters, fluid, and spices as needed. We do also understand, though, that some renters prefer not to call the management company. We know that every rental has different needs and requests, and our best way to fulfill those needs is through responding to those requests. I thank you for the opportunity to provide those needs for future guests. With your feedback, we will be able to better serve our renters, so thank you. Again, thank you for your valuable feedback, and for taking such good care of the home during your stay. Libby
