Bozeman apartment description
The GarajMahal is a beautiful apartment above a garage (built in 2009) in Bozeman's most traditional 'Norman Rockwell' neighborhood, just one and a half blocks from Bozeman's lively Main Street. It's fully furnished with an eclectic collection from the owner's overseas adventures along with all the practical necessities. There are at least 20 restaurants within easy walking distance ranging from the classic Western Cafe (you'll see authentic ranchers having morning coffee) to the mothership of Montana's MacKenzie River Pizza 'chain' to the ever popular Montana Aleworks (restaurant, bar, pool tables) in a restored freight depot. Four blocks from the annual Sweet Pea Festival of the Arts and all the parades and music fests that happen all summer on Main Street. Four blocks to the library (free computers available) and two blocks to a small but full service super market. To remind us of our agricultural heritage, there are even two grain elevators within three blocks.
Bozeman's growing Main Street to the Mountains trail system is five blocks away, as is the city's most popular sledding hill. Walk to the city swimming pool where weekly band concerts take place in summer. Walk (or take a short drive) to the County Fairgrounds. Our free Streamline Bus Service stops two blocks away. It's an easy drive to Bridger Bowl ski area or you can take the bus. Parking is on the street, but there's room in the garage to store skis or bikes.

Perfect Apartment for Visitng Grandparents
Perfect Apartment for Visitng Grandparents
My husband and I loved staying in this cozy but spacious and sparkling above garage apartment while we were visiting our children and grandchildren over Thanksgiving. Sun streamed in throughout the apartment where we enjoyed time off from grandchildren reading in the comfort of the inviting living room area. The kitchen and bath were very well appointed-actually,everything looked brand new. We would certainly recommend this wonderful apartment to friends and look forward to returning for another visit.

This is a fantastic rental in a fantastic location! Marjorie is a great host and even left us some delicious raspberries from her garden one day! I traveled with my daughter and she brought a friend and it was wonderful to have a full kitchen to make meals and washer and dryer to keep up with two teenage girls. You are also so close to downtown that you are pretty much walking distance to anywhere off of Main Street. I would highly recommend this place and hope to stay there again on my next trip!

All of the great reviews we read were absolutely accurate. We so appreciated the added amenities of toiletries and some basics in the refrigerator and pantry as well as the beautiful Canterberry Bells in the garden. Great location for accessing town, parks etc.. such a pleasant stay for us. Thanks to the wonderful hostess and her companion Guy Noir.

We had a terrific stay. The apartment has everything you need. The bathroom is spacious and modern, the kitchen is complete and cozy with a table for four, the bedroom is roomy and comfy and the living room has comfortable furniture, a book collection, and cable tv and internet. Windows open to leafy views. Blocks from great restaurants and shops we had a great time watching the fireworks in a local park. The owner is very helpful and friendly. We had an amazing week.

Our first experience using a VRBO property and we could not have been more pleased with the GarajMahal for our 2 month stay. The apartment was bright and airy with more than enough space for both us and our rather large dog. The location was awesome...the grocery store was only 2 blocks away, along with numerous coffee shops and restaurants. The owner is a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. Just the perfect place for us to enjoy winter.

If you're looking for a clean, spacious rental close to downtown Bozeman, this is as good as it gets! Just a few blocks off of main, this little apartment is the perfect place to check in for the week. Ditch your car and walk to any number of shops, restaurants, parks, or local breweries and you can still be home inside of 5 minutes. Apartment is well-designed, well-decorated, and completely private. If you're looking to save some dough, the kitchen has ample pots, pans, utensils, and appliances for do-it-yourself meals. For those with kids, there is a playpark right across the street at the local school. Playground equipment is impressive for folks young and old. The owner is easy to work with and very accommodating. If you're looking for a weekend getaway, Gargae Mahal=Que Romantico. I give it my highest recommendation. We'll definitely stay there again!

Loved the location, the place, and the host was exceptionally friendly. It was like being in our own home even though we were in another country. I am definitely recommending this to anyone I know in the area, for their friends and family. It was very close to the beautiful main street, but still extremely quiet, even on Friday and Saturday nights. Very central to get around as well.

We had a lovely time! Definitely would stay here again with small children. The four of us fit perfectly and the proximity to Main street, pool, farmers market, and playground across the street was perfect! Thank you for such a delightful stay!

I spent the month of July 2011 here at the Garaj Mahal with my cat. I'm quite serious when I say that it was the most at home I had felt in quite awhile. Marjorie is a lovely host, and the accommodations are perfect for a cozy and comfortable stay. The proximity to Main Street in Bozeman, where the action is always happening, is fantastic. I brought my bike with me and found it super easy to get around town, and it was nice to be able to utilize the garage to store it safely. If you're looking for a true Bozeman experience, stay here.

About the owner: I grew up in Bozeman, graduated from high school here, attended college here, and then went away for a couple of decades, working as a journalist and a U.S. Foreign Service officer. I returned convinced that Bozeman really is the best corner of Montana which really is the Last Best Place. I'm a freelance writer and editor. Even though many residents have been attracted to Bozeman because it has some of the most beautiful, accessible scenery in the U.S., we also have a a lively theatre community, a remarkable symphony orchestra, and a 34-year-old highly respected opera company! And during the school year, there are always performances in various genres happening on the campus of Montana State University.
Why the Owner Chose Bozeman:
When the time came to rebuild my ancient, decrepit garage, I decided to include an apartment upstairs, to help pay for the construction. When I saw how bright and sunny it was going to be and how wonderful all the roof angles were I decided to share my prime downtown location with vacationers rather than turning it over to a long term renter. At least I get to go into the apartment from time to time to change the sheets!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Living here I get to indulge my love for cities at the same time I'm within minutes of being in my beloved mountains. I'm exactly where I want to be -- and I'm willing to share it with visitors.
