The Sapphire Getaway is close to downtown, shopping, river, parks, hiking, etc. At the same time, you will be amazed at the feel of this space, only 3 miles from the center of town. It is as though you are completely away from it all......This a wonderful place to stay because of the forested beauty, the quiet, wildlife, proximity to town and mountains at the same time ! If this apartment is booked, please check out our Hamilton Hideaway Apt. at the same location.
Some particulars important to know are that the Sapphire Getaway is a one room Studio Apartment, originally part of a larger shop, so the bathroom area has a shower and toilet, while the sink is part of the kitchenette.
The cooking equipment in the kitchenette consists of a large countertop, housing a Microwave, Induction Burner, Toaster Oven, Electric Skillet, Coffee Pot, Electric Teapot, and all accessories, plus coffee, tea, etc. Please just let me know if you need anything else, and it can usually be easily provided. Laundry equipment is available in the main home, schedule ahead, no charge.
There is Wifi, television, and radio available.
If there are extra guests, please make sure to notify me ahead of time, to assure that there are adequate towels, sheets, blankets, etc. All linens and towels are supplied, as well as hair dryer.
If there are more than 2 guests, you may have to time your hot water use a bit, as the electric hot water heater may need a little time in between showers !
The property is open for you to roam about, we sit on 3.5 acres approx. But Montanans don't relish fencing, so check with me about property boundaries before you wander off too far !
Also, you may encounter some extremely friendly Labrador Retrievers, a Yellow and a Black, usually contained in the house. I will apologize ahead of time for their exuberance should they manage to wiggle out to greet you ! They do not usually roam free, but may be sniffing about now and then.
Interaction with guests
I am usually busy doing something on site, or off running errands or enjoying some of the outdoors. However, it is NEVER a bother, if you have a question, or concern, so always be sure to give a shout if need be. We do not always have cell phone reception outside of our residential areas in Montana, so do take precautions if you are going to remote areas. If you need any information, or tips on where to go and what to do, I am at your service.
Other things to note
Hamilton is a small town, with a limited number of motels and other lodgings. The nearby towns are even smaller. So if you are planning a trip here between Memorial Day and Labor Day, I recommend that you book EARLY. Having definite seasons, everything happens in the summer, and on ALL weekends, so lodging can be very difficult to find at the last minute. That goes for camping as well. Just Sayin' !
We have a wonderful Farmer's Market in downtown, on Summer Saturday mornings, 9am to 12 noon. Don't miss it, it is really unique !
Also, being a small town, even in summer our restaurants may close earlier than you are accustomed to, so be sure to plan for dinners ahead of time, possibly contacting the restaurant you are interested in for their hours.
Please be accurate in your reservation when you input the number of guests, this is required for insurance purposes, as well as correct payment. If your party is more than your reservation states, it will need to be updated at time of check-in before accomodations will be available to you. Thank you.
