West Fork Bitterroot Vacation Retreat - Darby

We rent a furnished vacation home with an unattached apartment over an adjacent garage. The property is located 14 miles southwest of Darby, just off state road 473 (West Fork Road) in a ponderosa pine/douglas fir forest on the east flank of Trapper Peak, the highest peak in the Bitterroot Mountains. The West Fork of the Bitterroot River is a half mile away.

This timber frame house was built by my father in 1982. It is fully furnished with 2 bedrooms, full bathroom, modern kitchen, lots of windows, wood stove, deck, greenhouse, full basement and washer and dryer. There's also an apartment with a queen size bed and half bath above an unattached garage. Two full size futons were added in 1999, so there are now 5 beds. Bamboo floor was added in 2010 to downstairs living room, kitchen, and hallway in house. Pets are okay, but must not run free as we value the wildlife here.

It is a peaceful setting a half-mile from West Fork Road and is very private. Guide service is available for fishing, bicycling, back packing, horse packing, white water and flat water river rafting.

Rental rates: $125.00 per night (3-day minimum) for up to four people. $10 per night for each additional person. 11:00am checkout.

$875 per week. Rates before a 7% MT tax, $75 cleaning deposit, $200 refundable security deposit, and $100 extra cleaning deposit for pets. Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.
