It was seventeen years ago that I established the Bitterroot Valley’s first vacation rental home, with my own SweetSage Guest House. As a stay-at-home-mom with three children, my business slowly expanded to managing other nearby properties, while allowing me to remain mostly at home with my family.

Today, I’m a licensed, insured property manager and SweetSage has grown into a diverse enterprise with a unique selection of both vacation and long-term rentals. With every guest and tenant, I’m dedicated to providing the best the Bitterroot has to offer . . . clean, quiet surroundings, the comforts of home, and, always, my special attention.
