Bozeman house description

This newer, very affordable 4 bedroom 3 bath vacation home away from home is located in the heart of the Gallatin Valley in a quiet, family-friendly subdivision with 360-degree mountain views. River Rock Retreat borders a recreational area and beautiful fish-stocked pond, complete with two man-made beaches and sporting a wide, winding sidewalk surrounding it. You'll be a short walking distance around the pond to a local Pizzeria on the water, full gym and tanning with daily and weekly affordable rates, ATM, community center, spa and salon, an arcade with mini bowling and pool, two churches, and even a convenience store- all right on the water at the River Rock Pond less than a five minute walk from the house! Also on the water is the beautiful River Rock Community Center with an industrial kitchen, tables and seating for 60, and beautiful views for large events.

River Rock Retreat is also within walking distance of the Gallatin River and centrally located to the Madison and Jefferson Rivers. We are away from all the city noise but only minutes from the heart of Bozeman. You'll find a wide variety of casual and fine dining options nearby, and several grocery stores if you choose to do your own cooking. Our kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cooking gear and dishware, appliances, refrigerator and freezer, toaster, microwave, coffee/cappuccino machine and dishwasher. Feel free to use any cooking essentials in the pantry or pick up your own supplies.

You'll enjoy modern amenities like Direct Satellite TV offering over 140 different local and national channels. With two different receivers, the kids can watch one station or movie downstairs in the recreation room while Mom and Dad relax to their favorite show upstairs! You'll also have access to FREE high-speed wireless internet throughout the whole house.
Our home is also professionally cleaned before each new guest party arrives, so just relax without worries at the River Rock Retreat.

Pick a THEME for Your Stay! (No Extra Charge):

1. Romantic (Bottle of fine wine, roses, chocolates & Aromatherapy bath bubbles in master bedroom)

2. Fiesta (Look for Pina Colada Mix with Tequila in the fridge, and festive bouquets around the house)

3. Laid Back (Some popular local micro brews or soda, & a gift certificate for Gunny's Pizzeria, a local pizzeria located within walking distance right on the water of the River Rock Pond behind our house)

Big Sky Country: We work hard to make sure that your stay in our home is just what a vacation should be. Help yourself to any books, movies, or food in the pantry, and of course the fully equipped Massage Room.

Our home is your home, so kick back, relax, and leave all your worries behind. Use our home as a quiet getaway retreat or a base from which to do every outdoor activity under the Big Sky Country.

                          At our River Rock Retreat, you'll be staying in a quiet, family-friendly subdivision with 360-degree mountain views that borders a beautiful fish-stocked pond. You'll be a short walking distance around the pond to a local Pizzeria, less than a mile from the Gallatin River and centrally located to the Madison and Jefferson Rivers. We are away from all the city noise but only minutes from the heart of Bozeman. You'll find a wide variety of casual and fine dining options nearby, and of course we'll give you the insider tips about little-known local favorites, plus several grocery stores if you choose to cook. You'll find walking and biking trails right out the back door and a nearby park/recreation area, nearby national forest access and fishing access. Relax and enjoy this little peaceful oasis in the heart of the Gallatin Valley.

                          About: We are both Montana natives, and love the rugged beauty of the Gallatin Valley. Though we love to travel ourselves, we can't imagine moving away from this beautiful area, and in particular the Bozeman area. Zak was a property manager up at the Yellowstone Club, a multi-million dollar association of homeowners, where only the best was expected. We carry those same expectations in our vacation rental. We run a successful home-based business and have ample time to be outdoors. Every time we fly over the majestic mountains coming home to Bozeman Montana, we breathe a deep sigh and know that we're coming to the best home a person could ask for.
