About listing

A few years ago, we built a tiny house in Missoula, Montana. We call it 282 because the space is 282 square feet of bright, clean, open space. Our family of four lived in 282 for two years and we found tiny living quite comfortable. We have since moved into the main residence on the property and want to share our tiny living experience with others who are visiting our lovely mountain town. Recently updated, 282 offers one queen-sized bed and one pull-out, full-sized bed perfect for children. The space can accomodate four people (two adults and two children, for example) or two adults quite comfortably. 282 is a studio with a full kitchen (stove, fridge, sink, etc.) and one bathroom with a sink, toilet and shower. It is completely stocked with dishes, pots, pans, a coffee maker and towels. It has a kitchen table and french doors that open onto a small patio. The house is seperated from the main residence by a privacy fence and has its own entrance but you are welcome to hang out in the backyard by the garden beds. 282 is a ten-minute walk to downtown Missoula, a ten-minute bike ride (20-minute walk) to the University of Montana and is nestled in Missoula's eclectic Northside neighborhood. Full of artists, writers and filmmakers, the Northside has a brewery, an art's center and, in summer, an outdoor cinema. It's a short bike ride to Greenough Park, the Rattlesnake trailhead and the Clark Fork River. We have public transportation a few blocks away and our close-in location allows you to walk downtown. We live onsite and are happy to help answer any questions about swimming holes, restaurants serving local food or where to find the best latte in town.

    My adult daughter and I, with her cat! (thank you Jennifer!) spent nearly a week at the tiny house. Everything is exactly as pictured with nice extras like spices, shampoo, coffee, and even a couple extra toothbrushes in case you forgot yours! This was great for the two of us and you could probably add a child or two without feeling too cramped. Jennifer was extremely responsive and always got back to me very quickly. In a nice, quiet neighborhood that's convenient to the city of Missoula. Highly recommend! 11 February 2016 - 19:59:18

    We had a great stay at Jennifer and Seth's cozy little house. They were extremely generous and accommodating, and the house is very well organized and maintained. The location is excellent, and we were at walking distance from downtown. I am sure we will come back next time we are in Missoula and need a place to stay. 10 December 2016 - 03:05:00

    This will be our go-to whenever traveling to Missoula! It's a perfect location for accessing everything from the interstate to downtown to campus to trails to parks. Very well supplied and excellent hospitality. Thank you so much for such a cute house! 29 December 2016 - 16:05:00

    It was one of the coldest weeks in Missoula in a long time with -15 degree mornings, but I was very comfortable and cozy in the tiny house. The tiny house really doesn't seem that tiny! Seth and Jennifer are the absolute best! 17 January 2017 - 15:35:00

    The space worked great for my wife and I while visiting our son, who is studying at the University of Montana. It has good light, with good kitchen space, and a nice bathroom. Thank you Seth and Jenn! 07 February 2017 - 01:23:00

    This was a perfect price & size for our family of 4! (2 adults, 4year old, 5 month old) The home was very clean and we felt safe there. We will definitely stay again. 03 April 2017 - 05:28:00

    Very cozy and clean! We stayed with our two kids and we all had plenty of room and enjoyed our stay very much! Great location and it had everything we needed. Love the rock climbing wall outside and the owners are very nice too! 21 March 2017 - 22:30:00

    Jennifer was very kind! 282 was well lit, lovely, very clean, and ready for us when we arrived. The kitchen is clean and stocked, and the bed was comfortable! Just the right size heater, and the shower was great. Everything is able to be as private (blinds) or as open as you desire - and access through the back alley was super convenient. LOVED the skylights. This is a great place, and felt very comfortable. Perfect for a getaway for us, and would be my preference over a hotel room if you're travelling through. One thing! Make sure, when you shower, that you have situated the curtain, otherwise you will flood the bathroom (like we did!). That was our bad, we didn't realize, and left part of it a bit open. (Sorry for the extra laundry, Jennifer!) Kitchen is well appointed for coffee, tea, and a light breakfast. The stove works great, and dishes/glasses/teacups for four. The table is perfect for doing artwork or working on a computer, and I really want to steal her tiny couch!! Very comfortable overall, and we will look for this place when we need a getaway in future. :) 27 March 2017 - 20:11:00

    This Tiny House isn't really that tiny! And it's so tastefully decorated. 282 Tiny House gave me a cozy, private, quiet spot to hang out (even my own patio) while I was in Missoula visiting a niece. I'd go back again! 16 April 2017 - 18:20:00

    What a great place to stay. The accommodations were, clean and tidy with a bit of a Euro feel. Very nice. Close to town and the best bistro in town! 19 October 2015 - 18:45:41

    Another plus: the neighbors have majestic doggos. 25 May 2017 - 17:33:00

    Bigger than I actually thought it would be. Very comfortable. We had a very enjoyable stay. Would stay again!! I would have given a 5 star if the fridge was full sized and there was a microwave. Owner was great to deal with. Prompt response time and always in communication with us. The place was very easy to get to and very close to downtown. Overall we were very pleased!! 13 July 2017 - 00:59:00

    This is a very nicely situated "North End" accommodation. We had an early July visit to Missoula and enjoyed 282 very much. Entering and exiting was convenient through a back gate. The patio area was well shaded, peaceful and enjoyable. The A/C was much appreciated and the bed was comfortable. (Two adults.) The refrigerator was a bit small and one would need to shop daily if desiring to prep meals. Overall we felt this was a good value and superior to staying in a motel. Thanks for 282! 18 July 2017 - 23:04:00

    Such a great house in a close-in, cool neighborhood. House is very quiet and has a comfortable and charming patio to enjoy your coffee, which is thoughtful supplied. Highly recommend and will stay again without hesitation. 22 July 2017 - 14:28:00

    Very attractive, clean house. Enjoyed the press coffee maker. The air conditioner this particular summer was a welcome relief. 13 August 2017 - 11:06:00

    Second stay at Northside. This time during Christmas. Another great experience with the added bonus of 6+ inches of snow. Northside stayed warm throughout our stay. Easy access to the hills trails, our family and all the places that make Missoula special. Northside has all the amenities needed to make our stay pleasant and relaxing. Thanks and we'll see you next summer. 27 December 2017 - 18:28:00
