Property description

Delight in the rustic elegance of this log home near the Bozeman Pass in the Bangtail Mountains. All of the comforts of home await our guests in this beautiful home situated at 6,000 feet among the aspen trees, tall native grasses, and pine forest. The home is fully furnished. The main level has hardwood maple floors, the upper floor is carpeted, and the basement has tile on radiant slab heat. The main living area is heated with the radiant stone fireplace. The outdoor hot tub under the stars is sure to relax after a long day hiking, having adventures in Yellowstone National Park or on the area rivers.

The fully-equipped, tiled kitchen, and adjoining, formal dining room, are also warmed by the radiant stone fireplace. Laundry facilities are available for your convenience as well as satellite TV, satellite wireless internet, VCR/DVD, games, books, and barbecue grill. The master bedroom has high ceilings, two balconies, mountain views, and a tiled Jacuzzi bath.

This secluded and elegantly furnished, four bedroom, 2 ½ baths home, sleeps 8-10 comfortably. Bedrooms include one king size bed, a queen bed, two twin beds, and a combination bunk bed; single above, double below, with a single trundle bed. Other sleeping options include a double hide-a-bed in the recreation room, and if you like sleeping outdoors the tipi has a double futon and a single cot.

Enjoy 45 acres of lush, mountain hillsides with wildflowers, hiking trails, abundant wildlife and a tipi, across the road near the creek. A year round cutthroat spawning creek meanders gently through the property with many hidden springs flowing into the creek.

In Montana we tend to have extreme weather year round. Please prepare for this by choosing to bring a 4-wheel drive vehicle.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We built and participated in the design and construction of this home in the mountains between Livingston and Bozeman in 1995 as a place to raise our three children, then ages 9, 11 and 13. They are grown and live in NY, VA and MT. We are now living and working in Billings, making our home available to vacation renters. This is a perfect spot for a quite retreat with a loved one and large enough for a family reunion. Lots of hills to climb and forest/creek to explore, along with a night in the tipi across the road, down by the creek. One night we were wakened by a mama and baby moose feeding in the willows next to the tipi, we watched them in the moonlight for a long time. These are magical moments.

Why the Owner Chose Livingston:
We are only 20 minutes from the Yellowstone River and some of the world's best fly fishing and one hour from Yellowstone National Park. Bozeman is a half hour away and Livingston even closer. Bridger Bowl ski area is 40 minutes via Jackson Creek Road.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having the mountains in our backyard and the creek to play in added a unique dimension to our children's lives. One could feel the peacefulness of the area as soon as one started the five-mile drive home after working in town all day. Sitting on the deck and watching the sunset is a moment to cherish. We are still in awe of the great beauty here and are very happy to share our home with our guests. The wildflowers in spring and summer cover the hillsides around the house. If you like bird watching the deck is a great place to sit with a bird book and binoculars. Moose feed on the willows down by the creek, black bear visit occasionally, deer are abundant and a herd of elk may wander through the property depending on the time of year. There is never a dull moment in nature at Aspen Hill Retreat.
