About Patricia Cloud

Our four generations have combined creative forces to offer this great little vacation gem. We have been blessed to live in beautiful Montana for 20 + years and continue to pinch ourselves daily. We come originally from the east & west coasts and spent 20 years in Alaska before finding our home in the Bitterroot Valley.

We have 3 daughters, our son-in-law, and our beautiful grandchildren living in Missoula.

We live in our country home 35 miles southeast of Missoula outside of Stevensville, MT.

Thank you for visiting our site.

Patricia Cloud purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Patricia Cloud chose Franklin to the Fort

Spending time with our children & grandchildren is high priority for us, besides finding Missoula a beautiful, active & compelling community. There is something to do every night if you want to go out and about, or stay at home and enjoy the cool summer & cozy winter nights. Missoula may be small by city standards but it has a huge heart that expresses itself in community events, Saturday & Sunday Farmers Markets, art, music, theatre, dance, Griz football, Osprey baseball, great food & beverages all abound.

What makes this apartment unique

Attention to detail, fine craftsmanship & location, helped us fall in love with the Catlin Gem Apartment. Inside is a well appointed and cozy space filled with comfortable and interesting furnishings. Step outside and within minutes you are either in the heart of the bustling downtown area, hiking up Mount Jumbo, floating or fishing the Clark Fork, Bitterroot and Blackfoot Rivers or exploring, hiking or downhill/cross country skiing the Rattlesnake wilderness, Snowbowl, Lost Trail, Pattee Canyon or Blue Mountain. Entertainment, relaxation and exploration are only bounded by the imagination!

Nice Apartment, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I was fortunate to be able to stay at this apartment for four months while I was on a work related detail. It was quiet and comfortable and the fact that it was fully furnished and had a washer and dryer made it even better. The neighbors were fairly quiet, I hardly saw them. And it is in a central location with great walking trails nearby which made it nice for walking my dog.
