Let Sage Cottage 406 be your Vacation Getaway

Our cottage is located on our small farm in the Heart of the Bitterroot Valley, Montana. The house was built to be exclusive as a vacation gateway and is the perfect setting for people who want to enjoy peace and serenity, a couples retreat, or a small family getaway to enjoy all the wonderful things the Bitterroot Valley has to offer. This serene setting overlooks Hamilton and is close to hiking/biking trails and lots of rivers and wildlife to enjoy, great for scenic drives.

The cottage privacy yard has spectacular views looking over the Bitterroot Mountain range, 7 miles from Hamilton Montana, Sage Cottage 406 has its driveway with a large parking lot, fire pit, hot tub, privacy yard, and modern convinces like a washer/dryer, free Wi-Fi, 2 smart TVs, and all new appliances and complimentary handcrafted soaps made from ingredients on our organic farm like lavender, roses, and honey. We also provide local honey from our beehives.

Less than 10 miles away is the Bitterroot River, it has over 100 miles of Blue-Ribbon trout water, great for fly fishing. The night sky for stargazing is brilliant, Bill has a couple of telescopes set up for astrophotography from our back yard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, silverware, and utensils; it has an electric stove, Instant Pot, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, espresso maker, toaster, cookbooks, and supplies in the pantry. It is stylishly designed with Italian ceramic tiled backsplash and glass drawer pulls Bill blew in our glass studio.

Just off the kitchen is a full-size washer and dryer, with complimentary laundry soap.

The bedroom is warm and inviting with a comfortable queen size bed, latté colored walls, espresso lamps, and chocolate blackout curtains. Along with the 40” smart TV, it has a writing desk equipped with writing paper, Sage Cottage cards, and coloring pages for the young and young at heart, along with colored pencils. We hung one of our favorite prints from Tim Cox above the bed named “Just for the heck of it”

The living room has a futon that folds out to a queen-size bed for extra guests. The dining room table is tall with tall chairs to better see out the windows and enjoy the views. A smart TV is on the wall between the living room and kitchen swivels so it can be watched from the living room or the kitchen.

The full-size bath comes with complimentary soaps, handcrafted by Rae using ingredients from their farm. It includes an inviting tub with a pebbled beach tile on the floor and Tuscan type tiles on the walls. In the bath is a linen closet supplying extra towels, linens games, and puzzles. We have our hand-blown glass drawer pulls on the cabinetry adding to the artistic elegance.

This cottage has its private driveway and entrance with a digital keypad on the front door. 360-degree views can be enjoyed from this location with the kitchen window looking out to the Bitterroot Mountains and the living room windows has a view of the Sapphire Mountain range. In the spring and summer months feel free to stroll in the surrounding gardens. You can stroll in the garden any time of year but when the flowers are in bloom in the spring and summer it is the best.

We designed this house to have free Wi-Fi and installed 2 flat screens, smart TVs, people staying can enjoy complimentary Netflix / Hulu and network channels or stream music. The TV in the bedroom has a wireless soundbar that connects to handheld devices.

Behind the cottage is an outdoor hot tub always warm and ready with spectacular views of the night sky or Bitterroot Mountains. So bring your flip flops, bathing suit, and a robe, the water is nice to soak in the year around. Winter / cool weather is a favorite time in the hot tub. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise and listen to the birds sing and chatter.

The cottage is supplied with Sage Cottage organic products and we worked to keep a hypoallergenic environment. The soaps are handmade artisan soaps made with lavender grown in Sage Cottage 406 gardens. The cottage is cleaned by a chemical engineer, Rae, leaving no trace of DNA behind. Sorry, no pets so we can keep the place dander-free. In honor of Bill’s mother, the doors are larger to allow wheelchair access. Our home is on the same property and we love to meet our guests but also respect their privacy. We are happy to accommodate our visitors and make the stay at our little house comfortable and enjoyable.


For our tiny human guests/kids, the cottage has a Graco pack n play and booster seat with a tray. The seat straps to one of our chairs and fits ages 6 months to 4 years. We also offer wall plugs for those who would like them to add extra protection. The cottage even has a rocket ship tent for kids to play in. Even with all the best childproofing we still ask that all tiny humans/children be supervised at all times. One of the funniest things we have found kids like about staying at our cottage is chasing our free-range chickens. We encourage this, the old girls need their exercise, so please feel free to give them a chase.

Bill and Rae Grout are glass / Steampunk artists who live on a small farm overlooking the Bitterroot Mountains. Building this cottage was their ultimate art project using our blown glass cabinet knobs, artesian tiles, and elegant touches we built this house specifically as a vacation getaway.

Relax and enjoy this sanctuary.
