About the property

4 Bedroom/3 Bath With Vaulted Ceilings & Easy Access To Downtown & Hiking/Biking

This charming four bedroom, three bathroom bungalow is nestled in a green oasis right next to downtown, the University of Montana, and easy access to the extensive Missoula trail systems.

Features three complete bedrooms, a fourth bedroom with a pull-out futon, and a pull-out couch in the downstairs living room. Three full baths with showers, towels, and basic shower supplies.

The open kitchen is fully equipped and has stainless appliances, microwave, toaster and toaster oven, coffee press & more. Air-conditioning for summer comfort and the ambiance of a gas fireplace for the colder months of the year.

There is a TV downstairs with XBox for playing DVDs. Sorry, no cable/dish.

The lovely front yard has large shade trees, deck table and chairs, and sometimes even a hammock. A BBQ is available so you can get your grill on and a fire pit to create a low-key summer evening gathering. This all makes for a great setting for a summer family gathering, vacation get away, or summer/winter adventure base.

Easy access to downtown or the university, as well as the recreational areas, makes this residence the perfect stopping place with all the comforts of home at a reasonable price for character and unbeatable location!

About Reid Prison

We are two brothers who co-own our house. Our jobs require us to travel a good portion of the time. This property was recently purchased as home base. We grew up in the Missoula Valley and our family and friends are here. Collectively, we have lived in Bozeman, Portland, and China for the last 10 years.

Reid Prison purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Reid Prison chose Lower Rattlesnake

We found this property after a tough search and many house viewings.

We'd almost settled for a couple of others but this one pulled together all the criteria we were looking for with its easy access to town and biking trails, as well as as some of my favorite breweries, while still maintaining that quiet neighborhood feel.

Inside, it had been updated and remodeled with vaulted ceilings and open living spaces reminiscent of our family home. The front yard with large shade trees and outdoor living spaces welcome anyone to come in the gate to sit in the yard or on the porch. All these pieces come together to form a complete package we are very content with, we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this bungalow unique

Ultimately what makes this house unique for us is the easy comfort and unbeatable location. The house is open, friendly, and inviting; the spaces are ideal for gatherings and offers all the comforts of home. The location is top notch, being so close to the cultural centers of town while being located in a quite neighborhood near miles of trails.

Clean, family and pet accommodating, well equipped home!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was a perfect fit for our family Christmas, we even had fresh snow! A bed for everyone, pets welcomed with a fenced yard and a mud room for skiis and boots. The open kitchen and family room was so inviting for visiting, puzzles and games, a large pantry for all our holiday goodies and a cozy fireplace. We appreciated the info on local attractions and dining too.

We highly recommend this charmer and can’t wait to come back in the summer to use the front porch and swing!!

A great home in a lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend with a group of friends here. 3 bathrooms makes a large gathering very easy. The owners were accommodating and responsive. It's an easy walk to downtown and a great place to start a hike. I'm looking forward to returning.

Poplar St is a quiet, lovely, maple tree lined street close to downtown and outdoor activities. The downtown and University areas are a short walk or bike ride away. The bungalow style house is deceptively large with vaulted ceilings and comfortable living spaces. The four bedrooms, three baths, as well as the Family room daybed, accommodates six people easily and up to eight people.

The house is set back off the street with a lovely front yard complete with a porch and front swing to enjoy a lovely summer night. Mt Jumbo with it's myriad of trails affords accessible hikes and city lights viewings. Whether looking for access to downtown or University events, marathons or Grizzly sporting events, or in search of outdoor adventure, the Poplar house offers access to all and a lovely setting that will be easy to settle into and hard to leave.
