General description

  • Main home
Rural mountain home with wood burning stove and private nature trail, located 35 minutes from Missoula in the Sapphire Mountains of the Bitterroot Valley. Hand-constructed straw-bale home is located off a 2.5 mile dirt road and features 3 bedrooms, a clawfoot bathtub, .25 mile private trail loop, ski-run, and an artist loft. Our 40+ hourseplants are situated around skylights and wood floors. 4 WD vehicle is necessary as well as working knowledge of wood-burning stoves (firewood provided!)

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Many plants
  • 3 dogs
  • A cat
We have three dogs and one cat that all get along in our mountain home. Our dogs eat 2x a day, love attention and love to roam our property during the day, barking softly to go in and out. No need to pick up dog waste as our 20 acre lot is mostly forest! We have a 4 year old border collie who loves to play fetch with a frisbee, an 8 year old Bernese Mountain Dog who loves cuddles, and a 14 year old lab who loves treats. Our cat (also eats 2x a day, litter cleaned daily) is as sweet as can be!

We have many houseplants, but they should only need water 1-2x a week, and we will need to have an overnight stay every night. Depending on the weather, the woodstove will have to be maintained. As this is a rural stay, 4WD access and knowledge of wood burning stoves is essential.
