Wishing for Peace in Paradise?
Where on Earth will you find this?
Imagine...
Tasting the spirit of nature by just entering this unique property overlooking Paradise Valley with a stunning view of Emigrant Peak.The Home is surrounded by 20 acres of canyons, hills and cliffs. There is a beautiful WRAP-AROUND DECK with outdoor seating and a hot tub that accommodates up to 7 people, a perfect place to observe Montana's starry nights. We have a front lawn that is maintained and holds the possibility of small sided soccer games, volleyball, badminton and various other lawn games. For our guests with small children, we have a smaller play teepee, a swing set and a trampoline that is dug into the ground. Take a leisurely walk to the campfire pit only a short distance away from the house where you can have a real Montana camping experience with cookouts and story telling around open fire and under open sky. For those wanting to indulge their free native wild spirit and roughing it, we offer a humble sleeping space in the larger teepee near the camp fire!

The Paradise Mountain Retreat is a 6 bedroom home that will comfortably accommodate 16 people.
The house features a recreation room with a ping pong table and an extra kitchenette.

There are two bedrooms with king size beds, one bedroom containing two twin size beds, one bedroom with a full size bed, one bedroom with a queen, the largest bedroom contains a queen bed along with two twin size beds. We also have a queen size pull out couch in the living room.

The kitchen features granite counters and is well equipped to meet all your cooking needs. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate multiple cooks and helpers, it is a great holiday kitchen. The kitchen also has a dishwasher, convection oven and large french door refrigerator. The dinning room has a wooden table that is large enough to accommodate up to 14 people.

For those cold, magical winter days the floor heat radiates through the playful Mexican style tiles while the wood stove keeps the whole house feeling cozy and warm.

For winter fun outdoors we have a list of exciting options:
* for a Hot Springs experience, try Chico Hot Springs Resort, located 15 min away. Or for the more adventurous type, try the Boiling River located in Yellowstone park just before Mammoth (40 min away).
*Sledding at snowbank camp ground up Mill Creek Road (20 min away).
*DOG SLED RIDE, jingle belling through a winter wonderland with Absaroka Dog Sledding Company located at Chico Hot Springs Resort (15 min away).
*YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK--- Take the family ice skating, snowshoeing or cross country skiing all conveniently located in Mammoth Hot Springs. (40 min)
To catch the winter wildlife, take a drive through Lamar Valley, the best winter wildlife watching route. You might spot wolves, coyotes, buffalo and here and there a sneaky fox.
At the end of this route, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised at the sight of Cooke City; an old-western rural village tucked away in the mountains where you can rest your horse(oh sorry, park your car!) slurp some hearty winter soup and be ready for the trip back home.
*world famous downhill ski resort Bridger Bowl is located an hour and a half away from Paradise Mountain Retreat.

Of course, the cozy home and hot tub will be waiting for you upon your return to the Paradise Mountain Retreat.

                              Year Purchased: 1998

                              About the owner: Pouwel and Miriam Gelderloos are immigrants from the old country The Netherlands. After many adventures and travels they pitched their tent in Paradise Valley. They were fortunate to purchase their own 6 bedroom Paradise Mountain Retreat to raise their 8 children, spoiling them with wildlife, caves, cliffs, canyons, storytelling by campfires accompanied by the music of the hooting owls, cooing doves, twitter of song birds and the whispering winds. Miriam is a former Montessori Teacher, Pouwel is a Builder/Designer/Innovator known for his signature craftsmanship. Come and vist his last project our solar powered and heated greenhouse.The Paradise Mountain Retreat is now available as a vacation rental,to share its countless bounty and blessings with kindred spirits.

                              Why the Owner Chose Paradise Valley:
                              The property really choose us. It was a perfect match. we were looking for mountains, wilderness, beauty, lots of space, a comfortable and cozy family home, sheltered garden, dramatic views and all this close to the magic of Yellowstone National Park. It is a central point between Bridger Bowl Ski Resort and Yellowstone Park. And here we are one half hour away from the Yellowstone National Park and an hour away from Bozeman, a bustling university town with its cultural and natural diversities. Not to forget to mention Historic downtown Livingston(half hour away), an eclectic gallery paradise with its eateries, breweries and wine cellars. Our children grew up with weekly Chico Hot Spring visits ( 8 minutes away), bridge jumping and floating the Yellowstone River.( 5 minutes away) But most of all they lived daily with the wildlife wonders of a mini Yellowstone Park that covered and adjoined our 20+ acres of Paradise Mountain Retreat.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The property is situated at a precise midpoint in Paradise valley minutes from premium elk and deer public land hunting grounds and prime fishing on Yellowstone River. 30 Minutes away from North entrance to Yellowstone Park with access to Lamar Valley for prime winter wildlife viewing and cross country skiing among the geysers in Mammoth Hot Springs. The Paradise Mountain Retreat is Heaven for young and old. It always surpasses everyone's expectations. It is ideal for large groups and still cozy and intimate for a intimate getaway and for small families. It is a Real Home away from Home with enough room and space, inside as well as outside, for everyone to be happy. The gourmet cooks enjoy the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, the teenagers can't wait to explore the cliffs and canyons. The younger children spontaneously kick off their shoes, run out unto the inviting lawn exploring the tepee and discovering the dug in trampoline hidden by a a circle of green bushes and then run to the swing set.They will find a family of deer or rabbits somewhere hidden close by. Moms enjoy a quiet moment in the hammock under the trees. I will not forget to mention the views from artistically placed picture windows in the house, the stillness that speaks peacefully day and night, the starry sky adored from a soothing hot tub after a day of exploring The Yellowstone National park. The house is for rent by itself, however, if you need more space we have an attached apartment available as well. Tenters are welcome also. The larger Teepee is also available for adventurous spirits! Take advantage of the many winter activities around. Great Snowmobiling and Cross Country skiing trails in Mill Creek and Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone Park, a 30 minute drive. Downhill skiing at Bridger Bowl, a 1 hour drive. Downhill sledding or dog sledding in Mill Creek, a 30 minute drive.
