Paradise Valley cottage description

Paradise Valley Cottage is your comfortable home away from home set amongst giant willows and pine trees with a view of the Rocky Mountains. The cabin is a stand alone building on our ranch with a very private entrance. The cabin is centrally located between Livingston and Yellowstone National Park with easy access to all that Paradise Valley has to offer. Step onto the wood deck and flagstone patio to enjoy the magnificent mountain views and barbecue your favorite meal. Walk along Eight Mile Creek to our private pond and watch the trout jump or stop on the bridge to enjoy the music of the water flowing while gazing up at Emigrant Peak.

Five miles from the cottage is Chico Hot Springs. After a day of hiking or skiing this is the place to be to sooth your tired muscles and relax. Here you can catch a meal at the grill or make reservations for a more elegant dinner in the dining room. Later, you can take in a live band and dance the night away. On the way to Chico Hot Springs there is a general store with everything you can imagine and across the street is a post office, bank, deli, bakery and the Old Saloon where you can enjoy a fantastic breakfast, burger or your favorite beverage.

The biggest attraction is just 35 miles south - Yellowstone National Park. Besides the famous Old Faithful Geyser, you will see wildlife - bison, elk, bear, big horn sheep, and if you're really lucky, wolf. The Park has so many wonderful sights that one day is never enough. If you are able, hike some of the back trails to really experience the peaceful beauty and in the winter, take a snow coach tour, snowmobile, or cross-country ski to enjoy the silence and pristine beauty.

For all the fishermen out there, Yellowstone River is easily accessed by our private site, one-half mile from the cottage. Set your drift boat in the river or wade in to catch rainbow and brown trout. Whether you are fly fishing or bait fishing, Yellowstone River will not disappoint. In the summer, if you're look for a boating experience or want to sunbath at the beach of a lake, Daily Lake is 15 minutes away and swimming, sailing, fishing and windsurfing are some of the popular activities found on this lake.

In the town of Livingston, among all the necessities (grocery store, pharmacies) you will find museums, art galleries, a farmer's market on Wednesdays throughout the summer, restaurants and boutique shops. There is also an 18-hole golf course and Sacajawea Park which hosts the annual music summer fest in July. Wintertime brings to Livingston live plays at the Blue Slipper and Firehouse, seasonal events such as the Christmas Stroll, bazaar and New Years Dance at the Depot.

                        My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful, cozy, and SAFE stay in this well-appointed and purely "Montana" cabin. We waffled some on the decision to stay on a property where the owners reside. The decision to do so became one of the best aspects of our trip. Diane and Rodney were the absolute best hosts we could have asked for. First, for those of you who would rather avoid interaction with others, let me stress that I had the distinct impression that we would have been left alone had we wished to. But a vehicular mishap (our fault, being very inexperienced driving in snow and a little slow at reading road signs, apparently) early into our visit encouraged us to meet our hosts. We got stuck on a snowdrift and knocked on Diane and Rodney's door for help. Rodney, my husband, and some helpful neighbors dug out the car while I enjoyed a cup of coffee and great conversation in Daine's warm living room. Rodney then showed us the correct route to reach the highway in the snow and carefully kept the road plowed so we could get out whenever we wanted to. Later in the week we visited Rodney's car restoration business and he kindly took time to show us around. In short, aside from staying in a precious cabin - clean, very well-appointed, beautiful, warm, classically "Montana" complete with horses and amazing views - we also got to meet some great people who helped to make us feel completely at home and well cared for. Thank you both again for a wonderful vacation!

                        We just had a lovely stay at this cabin! Very peaceful setting and roomy, clean, comfortable lodgings. Close to many trails, hot springs, about 20 minutes from town. Very convenient to many sights, including Yellowstone National Park, which unfortunately was closed due to the government shutdown during our stay, but would be easily accessible otherwise. Plenty to do here, and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sights and all Paradise Valley offers. Many thanks to our hosts and looking forward to our return to check out the park.

                        Our cottage was very clean and neat and we had all the comforts of home.The property owners were very friendly, and that includes the household pets. Everything was very up to date and comfortable and a very welcoming place for two weary sightseers to come home to. The property was more than I had expected and the pictures were good but could not show the real beauty of the area. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for this sort of vacation and would go back again if I were in the area.

                        The listing was exactly as described and pictured, and very neat and clean. It was cozy and home-like, with a very efficient kitchen in which I could prepare breakfast as well as lunches to take with us for our day of adventures. There is a BBQ outside the front door area so you have that option as well. Beautiful views, of course, because the area is beautiful, but so peaceful to come 'home' to at the end of a day, and be able to be away from the many people who flock to this part of MT each summer. Diane was who we dealt with, and she was very friendly and helpful. I have already recommended this property to other family members. Nearby attractions: The town of Livingston is about 20 miles west of the cottage, and has many little shops and art galleries as well as standard stuff like groceries and gas. We loved this town, and wished we were staying longer so we could explore more of what it had to offer. We were there mainly to visit Yellowstone (which is about 30 miles east of the property), and we did go there several times (amazing, of course; I highly recommend the park website as it accurately describes what's available and when guided tours and hikes will take place), as well as doing a 2 hour horse trail ride in the area. My main advice would be to allow for about twice the amount of time you think you want to spend in this area if your budget and/or schedule will allow it. Relative to hotels and other options in the area, this property is very affordable. Another time, I would plan for and book 10 to 14 days.

                        Our stay at paradise valley was just what we needed. Beautiful and restful. We stayed here in the evenings and toured Yellowstone during the days. If we return to the area, we will make a point to stay in Paradise Valley.

                        This was a beautiful place to stay for our honeymoon! I've always wanted to stay in a little cabin in the mountains, and couldn't have been happier here! Diane and Rodney, the owners, were very professional, friendly, and even blessed us by being our witnesses at our wedding ceremony. They really made our stay special! We fell in love with their adorable dog, Ethyl, who came to visit us daily, what a sweetheart she is. We loved our cottage stay in the gorgeous mountains, with breathtaking views in all directions. It was so hard to leave this wonderful place, and Diane and Rodney made us feel right at home and welcome. Everything we needed was in the cottage, just like at home, and it was very well stocked with so many things. It was clean, comfortable, and very cozy. We really, really didn't want to leave this beautiful place!!!

                        We have vacationed in Paradise Valley every year since 2000. This was our 3rd stay at Diane and Rodney's cottage. The cottage meets our needs and is located in an area that we prefer. Diane and Rodney are great and friendly hosts. Their cottage is very clean and comfy. Their property is well-maitained and the views are spectacular. We will return.

                        My wife and I stayed at this cottage for a week in October. The place was super clean and had everything we needed, with ample heat and hot water. Just outside are a couple of friendly horses. The night sky is amazingly clear. The city of Livingston is twenty or thirty minutes away, and a general store can be found less than ten minutes down the road in Emigrant. The cottage provided great and easy access to Yellowstone, but you could spend a week just soaking in the environment on the ranch. The owners are lovely and attentive if you need anything. If we are ever back in the area we will be sure to book here again!
