Our home is a charming Victorian located in a small ski and resort town famous for our Red Lodge Ales (the micro brewery is a short walk from my house) and its location abutting Yellowstone National Park. The home has been renovated and nicely decorated with everything that any visitor would need, including the most comfortable pillow top beds with comforters you'll ever sleep on. The home is a short three minute walk to the charming downtown of Red Lodge where you'll find gourmet shops, galleries, restaurants, a wine bar, a quaint, old fashioned movie theatre, coffee shops, a hometown bakery, and even a bowling alley. There is a lovely yard for relaxing in on the beautiful summer days we get. Red Lodge is a very friendly town and there are a variety of fun events to attend throughout the year.
You can hike, downhill and nordic ski, snowshoe, bike, ice skate (there is a hockey rink available in winter), kayak or canoe, fly fish or just drop a line in a river, and do just about anything outdoors you could imagine. The town is surrounded by amazing and expansive wilderness areas, which have numerous mapped hiking trails available. There is a horse-drawn wagon which gives free rides in the town on most evenings, and ski and snowshoe rentals are readily available for winter skiing and snowshoeing.
Red Lodge is an amazing and fun community and a perfect place for a memorable vacation. For more information about Red Lodge, you may want to view the town's website.

About the owner: We are Bruce- a professional, artist and musician, and Bev- a professional and musician. We are non-smokers and like living a healthy lifestyle in the Rocky Mountains. We are neat, detailed and enjoy meeting new people and learning new things.
In addition to our careers, the music we perform and the art Bruce creates in his pottery studio, Bruce is a writer. He has published several books of poetry and is currently working on selling his second novel. His most recently published book is AN UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY (Horace Simerman Literary Press, 2011).
We love the outdoors and enjoy running, cycling, hiking, snowshoeing and nordic skiing. We like to travel and love to visit cities as well as more obscure, out of the way places. We both find experiencing different cultures fascinating.
Why the Owner Chose Red Lodge: We love Red Lodge! It feels very much like home. If there were a yellow brick road leading to it, Red Lodge would be Oz! (You have to see movie 'The Wizard of Oz' to understand this...).
The community is filled with interesting and interested people. It has a very strong sense of community and it is situated in one of the most exquisite areas of natural beauty you could ever imagine.
Red Lodge has fine dining and the outdoor recreational opportunities are almost unlimited. It is a great place to own a home!
Our home is located in one of the best neighborhoods in town. It is a very peaceful and a refreshing place to stay.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We both love the sense of total relaxation we get when we are in Red Lodge at our home. Our house is very peaceful, yet we can walk to dinner in a few minutes, cross the street and go bowling or even strap on snowshoes and be hiking in the wilderness hiking in 5 minutes!
We love the quaint, small town feeling of Red Lodge. It is a wonderful place to see art, as there are a number of fine galleries in town, and one can easily spend a delightful day visiting the galleries and even meeting some of the local artists.
When we are at our house in Red Lodge, we feel like we have left the outside world, with all of its hustle and bustle, far away, and stepped into a soothing, idyllic place. It is extremely refreshing and we look forward to our trips to our home as often as possible.
