How many bedrooms and bathrooms would you need for you and your friends? What amenities are you looking for, and what is the date of arrival? Please feel free to call me directly and I'd be happy to assist you in this search.
That really stinks. I post some of my rental listings on Craigslist and scammers swipe the photos and re-advertise them for a much lower price. It is so frustrating.
That said are you looking for a house to rent north of Montana? A client of mine lives in one and is moving out next month. It is super cute and I think it is priced really well for the area. It is not on the market so you probably haven't seen it.
If you would like more information, please let me know. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
