Bedrooms Studio
Space 36 m²
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

For less than the cost of a hotel room you can stay on the top floor of downtown Missoula's historic Wilma Theater. Built in 1921, 'The Wilma' is one of Western Montana's most famous buildings and its original apartment units have recently been converted into condominiums. This is your chance to stay and share in a piece of Missoula history!

This is the perfect place to stay when you are in Missoula for business, summer or winter vacations, fly fishing, kayaking/river-rafting, University of Montana Grizzly football games, film festivals, visiting nearby family, weddings, or for any other reason you find yourself in beautiful Western Montana.

Located in the heart of Missoula's thriving downtown, this loft is within walking distance of incredible dining and entertainment opportunities including movies and an award-winning restaurant in the building itself! Also included in your stay is one off-street parking spot, reserved just for you.

Plan ahead to stay and enjoy panoramic views of the Clark Fork River, Mount Sentinel, Pattee Canyon Recreation Area, Rattlesnake Valley, Hellgate Canyon and even Snowbowl Ski Area.

This fully remodeled studio loft has been designed with your comfort in mind while using the latest in technology and 'green' building materials and techniques. Keep warm with radiant tile flooring in the bathroom and sustainably harvested bamboo flooring throughout. All new appliances, concrete countertops, rich lighting, and integrated audio/video/internet components compliment the region's natural beauty.

About Ross Peterson

I grew up here and love all that Western Montana has to offer. I feel very lucky to be able to live and work in my hometown surrounded by my family and friends. In late 2007, I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase this unit in the Wilma Building and spent the next 6 months designing and renovating it. Every square inch of this space is updated and I love sharing it with people from all over the world. I invite you to come see what Missoula looks like from the top-floor of the 'The Wilma'....I think you'll find it as stunning as I do.

Why Ross Peterson chose Heart of Missoula

Missoula, Montana is my hometown and feel very connected to this community. My family has lived in Western Montana for 4 generations and every single one of us has a memory from this building. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to be involved in the restoration of one of our states oldest and most famous landmarks. Plus, I'm very excited about the opportunities this rental has created for meeting new people and sharing this place I love so much.

What makes this condo unique

Most everyone who stays here in the Wilma Condo comments on just how convenient and comfortable it is. A great amount of time and energy was spent designing this studio space to be very efficient and offer all of the amenities people are used to having at home. Many visitors park their cars (in the private lot) upon arrival and, because of the Wilma's central location, are then able to walk or bike around town for the majority of their stay. For the warmer months (May - September) there are several farmer's markets located near this location, including one that is just an elevator ride away. People love to grab a coffee and walk to the markets or catch a dinner/movie....all without ever leaving the vicinity of the building!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Wilma Condo was absolutely amazing. The first point to make is the wonderful location and its amazing views. You are literally in the middle of everything. Every person I talked to in Missoula thought it was awesome that I was staying at the Wilma and always reminded me what history is within it.

Ross is amazing and is very accommodating. From the chocolates on my pillow to being very flexible with "check-in" and "check-out" times, Ross made our stay the best it could be. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. You can walk to almost anywhere worth going. It is very comfortable and it is obvious that he has worked hard to make it everything and then some. Thank you!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Ross was very nice and helpful and the condo was so clean when we arrived. The condo was comfortable and included all the necessary amenities and more. The location was perfect for walking downtown and for our tickets at the Wilma. We will definitely be back and recommend the property to friends and family!
