Newer neighborhood. Each of 12 homes is less than 10 years old and on an acre lot, so they are not close together. Our property is one of four adjacent to the common area bordering the Bitterroot River. The neighborhood is within sight of the Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge, although it is a 4-mile to drive around to the Visitor Center.
Guests will need a car to get to our home. We are 24 miles south of Missoula and about 27 miles north of Hamilton, Montana.
