Bozeman house description

The Olive Branch Inn, built in 1889 by one of Bozeman's early pioneers, is a charming and distinctive Victorian Manor house listed on the National Historic Register. The Inn is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood with a private fenced back yard and deck, just two blocks from the historic downtown area of Main Street. Hiking/biking trails, Farmer's Market, Emerson Cultural Center, fine restaurants, theaters, art galleries, quaint shops, a grocery and pharmacy, and Montana State University are all within walking distance. The house has undergone a complete restoration, with dramatic French wall coverings, antique beds, fireplaces and stained glass windows.

Each guest room is appointed with the highest quality linens, luxurious down comforters, feather pillows, plush terry-cloth robes, hair dryers, and custom soaps... well deserved pampering for an unforgettable experience. Each bedroom features a private bath. We provide high speed wireless internet and flat screen TVs in each room.
Past grandeur has been uniquely captured through the use of romantic fabrics, rich and bold papers, unusual antiques, the warmth of natural woods, and a fine sense of creative color and design. Care has been taken to preserve the architectural authenticity, while providing present day comforts and conveniences.

Come experience the tranquil elegance of this eclectic house, the ultimate invitation for the discriminating traveler to a world set apart. Nestled in the heart of the Rockies in the beautiful Gallatin Valley, Bozeman offers many outdoor activities including fly fishing, skiing, hiking, hunting, rafting, and canoeing. Pristine rivers and spectacular wilderness trails are only minutes away, while Yellowstone and Glacier Parks are within a day's drive. Local attractions include Shakespeare in the Parks, the summer Farmer's Market, outdoor band concerts, the annual Sweet Pea Festival and the Museum of the Rockies.

Arrangements can be made for scenic day trips or guided fishing excursions.

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: I love protecting our environment and preserving valuable human artifacts such as the 1889 Mansion in the historical district of Bozeman, Montana.

              Why Bozeman:
              Bozeman Montana is one of the sweetest spots on earth and it attracts people I love. The Bozeman Co-op is one of my favorite places to spend time. There are countless ways to embrace nature in this place.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This house is unique because it is the only accommodation within walking distance of our enjoyable, happening downtown! Two blocks to a beautiful park with a large swimming/wading pool and weekly farmer's market, and to hiking/biking trails, restaurants, bars, grocery/pharmacy, music and galleries. The house was restored meticulously and every room brings joy. Feel like a local and sit on the back private deck with a glass of wine and your gourmet dinner or watch the neighborhood from wicker chairs on the front enclosed porch. No need for destination ski resort/fly fishing lodging! Stay here and enjoy being central to the best skiing and fly fishing at your whim.
