About Lydia Fleming

We are a retired couple who live on a small ranch under the Mission Mountains 45 minutes north of Missoula. We are both native Montanans. Lydia retired recently after many years as a high school secretary. John also retired recently after teaching for 40 years at a small school on the Flathead Reservation. John taught middle school social studies and is very knowledgable about Montana history. We've raised three boys who all have degrees from Montana universities.

Why Lydia Fleming chose Riverfront

We've enjoyed our proximity to Missoula and all it has to offer. We fell in love with the Babs Building--it's historical significance, charm, and location in Missoula make it one of a kind! For those who want a personalized stay in Missoula, this fits! We love sharing our enthusiasm for Missoula and the surrounding area with visitors and would love to host you in your visit.

What makes this condo unique

The condo has the flavor of Montana and all it has to offer. Photos of our nearby national treasure, Glacier National Park, were taken by a local western Montana photographer and are featured prominently in the condo. The living room is stocked with magazines and books about Montana history and information about the wide variety of things to enjoy during your stay....

Such a great place!

We had a great visit to Missoula. The condo is clean, comfortable and it was adorable! It was easy walking distance to great bars, restaurants and yummy ice cream. We enjoyed chilling on the front porch and people watching too. I would whole heartedly recommend!

The owners offered an air conditioner that worked great in record heat Missoula. There is a Viking gas grilll in the courtyard that we used almost every day, super when you don't want to heat up the condo. Great walking distance to downtown, groceries, ice cream and popcorn. The condo is wonderful and well equipped. We would definitely stay there again!

This was the second time that we have stayed at this condo. My husband and I have visited Missoula numerous times over the last 4 years but didn't discover this charming condo until last fall. I can honestly say that it is the most comfortable accommodations that we have stayed at in Missoula. The location is ideal as it is close to downtown, the University, and right next to The Hip Strip. We can't wait until our next visit to Missoula and Unit 10 in The Babs.

Perfectly Located!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, cozy little apartment! It is so nicely appointed. Plenty of room for two and has everything you need. The bed was very comfortable and the location was perfect. It is situated right next door to an amazing italian restaurant, Ciao Mambo, and one block from the main bridge into downtown. We loved walking up and down the Clark Fork river and all over the campus. Music at the Top Hat is a must! We will definitely stay here again when we return to Missoula. Thank you so much!

The Babs building is surrounded by great places to eat and things to do. Le Petit Outre is literally across the street and has the best coffee and pastries in Missoula. Ciao Mambo, Iza, The Silk Road, and Hob Nob Cafe are all in the same block as the Babs and will probably mean you won't even want to use the kitchen! Big Dipper Ice Cream is a Missoula favorite and is only a block away for an after dinner treat.
