Property description

This very private and luxurious 2,000 square-foot home is sited on rolling foothills above the Yellowstone River just 25 miles south of Livingston and 30 miles north of Yellowstone Park.

The architect-designed home is surrounded by three mountain ranges and features 9-foot ceilings and 8-foot doors throughout, a vaulted beamed ceiling in the living room with soffit lighting, and rustic native yellow pine floors and trim. Tastefully decorated with art and artifacts, the McCulley Cabin feels like a luxurious private home rather than a vacation rental. The secluded location and attention to design and aesthetic details set this home apart from others in the valley. It is an extremely comfortable place to stay for a few days or a few weeks.

Huge picture windows and sliding glass doors in every room provide views of Emigrant Peak, the Gallatin Mountains, the Absarokee-Beartooth Mountains and the Crazies! You wont know which window to look out as each provides a spectacular view of snow capped peaks. Radiant floor heating throughout makes the cabin very comfortable for winter visits.

The gourmet kitchen is the focus of the main living area and is the perfect setup to socialize while cooking with family and friends. The cabin is very tastefully decorated with unique Native American artifacts, vintage cowboy art, and some pieces by local contemporary artists. Some of the furniture is from the company that made furniture for the old Yellowstone Park lodges.

The cabin is less than a mile from the Yellowstone River. Also about a mile away is the famous Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa. Chico offers hot spring pools, guided outdoor activities such as horseback riding and whitewater rafting, fine dining, a grill, and a saloon with live music several nights each week. Fine dining is also available during the summer at the Yellowstone Valley Lodge and year-round in Livingston.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: A love of fishing, nature and big beautiful spaces brought us to Montana in 1997. We fell in love with the area, purchased a 20 acre lot and built this cabin in 1999.

Why the Owner Chose Paradise Valley:
I think it's one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, am reminded time and time again when I visit from my home in Seattle.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is excellent for birding and in the winter months, deer and elk are often seen grazing nearby. We are close enough to Chico Hot Springs that you can easily drive down for an early morning soak before breakfast.
