WINTER WONDERLAND FUN***IMAGINE THIS***
*Bright blue skies contouring crispy white mountain peaks, sparkling diamonds dancing in the silent snow enticing you to come out and play.
*Roaring belly laughs as you sled daringly downhill with your loved ones in Mill Creek.
*Soul-fully huddling together on this MAGIC DOG SLED RIDE, jingle belling through a winter wonderland with Absaroka Dog Sledding Company.
*Courageously braving your adventurous spirit and soaking in Boiling River,The famous NATURAL HOT SPRINGS IN YELLOWSTONE.
*Taking your time (and your camera!) on a old-fashion coach ride through the Park all the way to Old Faithful!
*Driving leisurely through Lamar Valley, the best winter wildlife watching route (only one open in the Park in winter)You might spot wolves, coyotes, buffalo and here and there a sneaky fox.
*Finding yourself pleasantly surprised at the end of this route at the sight of Cooke City; a tucked away old-western rural mountain community where you can rest your horse(o sorry, park your car!} slurp some hearty winter soup and be ready for the trip back home.
*Ever thought about crossing the country on skies or snowshoes in Yellowstone Park?
*Ever dreamed about building your own snow hut?
*And in case all of this overwhelms you because you really want Peace and Rest.....
Paradise Mountain Retreat will offer you this without driving yourself crazy. You do not have to go anywhere and enjoy the mountains, cliffs,caves, canyons, trees, sage brushes, deer, squirrels, eagles, blue birds. You can take all this in while relaxing in the comfort of your own hot tub or warm blanketed deck-chair.
Yes! Your own Private Peaceful Paradise!

                          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 5 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.
