About Linda

We are a married couple with three grown children, currently spliting our time between California and Montana.

Linda purchased this house in 2010

Why Linda chose Ennis

We spent our first few years as a married couple in Montana and we couldn't wait to return to this beautiful area for our retirement. We enjoy fishing and the outdoors but we also wanted to be walking distance to other activities that the town of Ennis has to offer. We rent out this property when our extended family is not visiting.

What makes this house unique

We hope that you enjoy the quiet tranquility of life on the river. While also taking advantage of the many wonderful treats that Ennis has to offer, everything from community events like the annual rodeo and fly fishing festivals, to the shopping, entertainment and yummy local eats.

We fell in the love with the charm of Ennis and the undescribeable beauty of Montana. And we hope you will too!

Loved this house on the river and right in town!

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Guy were great hosts and this house right on the river was perfect. The house is clean and well maintained, had everything we needed/wanted, and the location on the river and right in town exceeded our expectations all around. Great fishing right out the front and Guy and Linda may even help you out if you forget your net (thanks Guy!). We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place and hope to get back to Ennis again soon. When we do, we'll be sure to stay here again!

It was exactly what we were looking for.

Our stay at the Madison River front home was great! It had a great view of the river, outdoor fire pit to give it a camping atmosphere, while still providing the comforts of home. I would absolutely rent this home again.

Fantastic Stay on the River

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Guy's home is perfect for a relaxing stay on the river. My father and I stayed here for a fishing / hiking long weekend and it was absolutely perfect! Views off the porch of the river flowing by, deer wandering in every evening, and close proximity to town so you can walk to get something to eat or meet your fishing guide. Top notch all around!

Had a great time fishing the Madison river and walking into town for dinner and drinks Loved the view out of the big picture windows of the river and the Madison mountain range. Owners were great and would answer any questions you had definitely worth another stay. John
