Come bring family or friends and soak up relaxing days at our amazingly beautiful and inviting Missoula Montana retreat home. Built in 2000 the retreat consists of the Main House which has 5 bedrooms (one of which is a large "bonus room"), 3 bathrooms, a beautiful garden room, larger living/dining area and complete fully equipped kitchen.
The extra "Guest House" consists of two private studio-type units named CREEKSIDE and MEADOW . Each unit has a living area, kitchenette, separate sleeping area and bathroom with shower. The kitchenette has sink, small fridge, microwave and coffee-maker but no full cooking facilities. These studio units have two single beds and a queen size futon sleeper-sofa in each unit.
The property is situated on 35 acres in a beautiful mountain meadow, with 2 creeks (Deep Creek and Gilman Creek) running through it. Our home is about a 30 minute county road drive from Missoula. Come sit by the creek. Enjoy family barbecue on one of our two decks. Read a good book in the garden room. Take the kids on a hike. Enjoy a family reunion or just bring the (grand) kids to enjoy a memorable Montana "get-away". If you're in Missoula for a few days or a week, let "Deep Creek" be your home base refuge. Everyone who stays here agrees it's one of the most peaceful places they've ever been.

Deep Creek Retreat is equipped with a full kitchen with dishes for at least 17 people, silverware, cookware, coffee maker, oven, microwave, full fridge/freezer combo, and dishwasher. We have had "day-groups" of up to 30 use the kitchen to feed a large gathering.
The dining room adjoins the large living room which has tall ceilings with high windows revealing views of the surrounding mountains. There is also a large bay window facing the creek and meadow where you can often see Deer, and sometimes Moose and other wildlife. We have a piano in the living room.
The Garden Room... we like to call it the "Sun Room", is another beautiful living/gathering area with decorative tile flooring, full of windows, 5 large skylights and comfortable wicker chairs.
The main house has 2 large porches: one faces the meadow, one faces Deep Creek. Each has seating and the Meadow porch has a picnic table. The Guest House units each have their own private porch with chairs.
The home is heated by a propane fueled hot-water boiler and there are window air-conditioners, but no central air-conditioning. Even on hot summer days, the mountain air cools off quickly and sleeping at night with the windows open can even be a bit chilly, so you may even use an extra blanket! This is Montana at it's finest!
A Gas Grill is available for use (located in the garage). There is a basketball hoop in the driveway by the garage.
PLEASE READ AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS:
We built our "Deep Creek" home as a Christian Prayer Retreat for small groups to get away and enjoy a peaceful time together. Now we're making our home available to you as well! Because Deep Creek is designed for peace and quiet we have designed our home in such a way as to avoid lots of distractions. The property sits in an area where internet reception is only available via satellite dish service, so we limit internet usage to web browsing and checking sites like Facebook and email. Our bandwidth is capped each month and does not allow for online gaming and downloading of large files or video/audio streaming. So, please be aware that you'll be away from heavy use of "the web" for a while.
We do not have cable or satellite TV at Deep Creek. A large flat-screen TV and DVD player is available. Cell phone reception is available, but spotty at Deep Creek. Phone reception is more dependable a couple of miles down the road. There is a telephone at Deep Creek.
We know how connected everyone is via TV/internet these days, so we want to make sure you understand Deep Creek is a bit of a retreat from these, as well as the craziness of every-day life! Please book your stay at our home agreeing to the above. Thanks.
We truly look forward to sharing one of Montana’s greatest treasure retreat homes with you!
