Montana Vacation Rentals
Montana is nicknamed "The Treasure State" due to its overabundance of natural attractions – a vacation rental in this majestic state is an invitation to view America in its most simply natural, undeveloped state. Montana has over 77 named scenic mountain ranges and three of the five entrances to Yellowstone National Park. On top of those natural attractions, the majority of the state is home to a population of only six people per square mile -- many opportunities to enjoy Montana’s simply natural beauty with no crowds, traffic, or tacky souvenir shops. It’s just you and the wide open country.
Anyone who’s seen the movie A River Runs through It is already familiar with the gorgeous, wild wilderness and the ample outdoor fun found in Montana. Just like in the movie, fly fishing and trout fishing are a favorite pastime of tourists and Montanans alike. And with all the scenic mountain ranges nearby, skiing, hiking, scenic mountain biking, and snowboarding are pretty much a given with any Montana vacation rental.
With its roots planted firmly in American history, Montana is a famed part of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. In fact, William Clark’s inscription on Pompey’s Pillar is the only true physical evidence of the excursion. Great Falls, Montana is actually named for the massive waterfalls that delayed Lewis and Clark for 31 days as they tried to circumvent the natural formation. Butte, Montana started out as a mining community and still has a feel of the wild, Wild West. This town, once known for its many saloons and a thriving red light district, is the only town in America with no open container law for its downtown streets. Provided you are on foot, of course.
With all this wild wilderness, the outdoor opportunities are limitless in Big Sky Country. Kalispell, Montana is home to Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi in the continental United States. Missoula, Montana has three major rivers running right through the heart of the city. And the little town of Stevensville, Montana is nestled between both the Bitterroot and the Sapphire Scenic mountain ranges.
Many of Montana’s cities have been voted an All American City throughout the years – some of them more than once! So book your next Montana vacation rental and experience why this state is called "The Last Best Place" for yourself!
