About the property

Family and friends will feel right at home in the warm and welcoming atmosphere of this renovated one and a half story, early 20th century cottage style residence. First floor has a large living room, wood flooring, and fully equipped kitchen and full bath. There are two bedrooms on the first floor – one with a full-size bed, the other with bunk beds. The carpeted upstairs has two bedrooms, each with twin beds. There is also a children's bed, (under 5') in the room between the two bedrooms across from a half bath. The pull out sofa downstairs offers additional sleeping space when needed. The house has accommodations for sleeping 8, however, having one shower, the house is best suited for smaller groups. A large enclosed front porch is prefect for evening gatherings. The enclosed side sun porch works well for drying waders and gear storage. A wood deck in the backyard is shaded by a large mountain ash tree. Satellite TV, and high-speed Internet. Fenced yard for your pet. Walls feature original landscape paintings by artist/owner, Greg Bombeck, and nationally known 'plein air' artists, Jean LaGassick and Ron Rencher.

Great home close to incredible fly fishing.

  • 5 of 5

Greg and Cindy's home was a wonderful place to spend our week in Montana. Their home was furnished with everything needed to live comfortably. The front enclosed porch/patio was where we spent the majority of our time. It was very hot the week we were there, so being able to enjoy the fresh air but out of the sun made the daytime hours much more enjoyable. Being able to drive 2 miles to quite possibly the best fly fishing that I have experienced, was heaven.

The house fit 6 us of comfortably and Greg was very quick to respond to any questions that I had.

We would definitely stay here again the next time we are heading to Ennis.

The home was a good value for our purpose.

  • 4 of 5

Good value; we had four guys each with a separate bedroom. Rooms and beds are small, but good value. Some windows didn't open, so it was hot at night. We had a hot week in Ennis; July 9-15 2017. Everything else worked fine.

Only one shower, but we made it work. Porch was great.

Enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

My father and I rented this home for 6 days of fishing the Madison. The home is comfortable and a well maintained older cottage. The kitchen is well stocked with all the necessities such as foil, spices and also plenty of cooking gear.

The cottage is very convenient to downtown Ennis and all it's shops and eateries.

I would definitely recommend this house in Ennis.

We had a wonderful time staying in this home. We had a problem with the oven and the owner was more than accommodating. The house had everything we needed and was well stocked with everything. We will definitely stay again!

Group leader of our hunting party.

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay and thought it was just like being home. Good, well equipped house and handy to down town with only a short drive to our hunting area. Enjoyed our stay and look forward to hunting the area again and hopefully staying in Greg's house!

Tired property that sleeps a lot of people. Good wifi and location

  • 3 of 5

Pluses: great wifi, sleeps 6-7 people comfortably, nice screened porch, laundry in basement, plenty of towels, proximity to Ennis's main drag.

Minuses: one shower for 6-8 people, no a/c, Windows missing screens, shower faucet handle broken, refrigerator doesn't close well and has trouble cooling, full/queen bed mattress needs replacement, noisy rubber mattress protectors on twin beds, no blankets upstairs, only one key supplied by owner, general disrepair.

I texted the owner on the first night regarding some of the issues, but received no response. It's clear that this property has been a rental for a while.

Owner's Response: This guest's subjective assessment is without merit as evidenced by other guests' ratings and reviews. Apparently this guest did not read the property description prior to renting. Why rent a house for 8 and then complain about having only one shower? The house is clean, well kept, and in good working order. (The shower faucet, having been damaged during this guest's stay, has been replaced.)
