Our reservation system is convenient, easy to use, and accepts credit cards, or checks.
If you are unsure of your exact dates, while the rest of your clan is deciding, just let us know and we will put a tentative hold for a week or so, on your projected travel dates.
Our family friendly 3,600sf home is situated on 10.5 acres. It is very comfortable and cozy for a small gathering, yet very spacious and roomy should you be looking for a home for your big family. We can accommodate up to 14 guests.
The access road to the house is level and paved, just a 1/2 mile off of Highway 540, the original road to Yellowstone Park.
Whether you choose to explore nearby Yellowstone Park, take a hike at the several nearby trailheads, fish, raft the river, or just stay home and sit on the back deck, this home provides the peaceful quiet beauty of Montana at its best.
The house can sleep 12 in the four bedrooms. The single/trundle bed in the family room will sleep an additional 2 people, for a maximum occupancy of 14.
The main level has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining and our recently remodeled great room. Off of the kitchen is a large deck with extraordinary vistas of the Absaroka and Gallatin Mountains and the Yellowstone River. One bedroom on the main level has a king bed, and the other has two queen beds.
The lower level, nice and cool in the summer, has a full daylight walkout basement, and offers a spacious family room, a full bath, and two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen size bed and a bunk bed. The other has a queen and a twin. The family room has a trundle bed that sleeps two.
Our fishing access on the Yellowstone River, shared with other members of our HOA, is but a convenient short drive away. Picnic tables included. See the attached video below. For launching boats from a trailer the state fishing access is a bit over a mile away.
Our property is family and kid friendly. The large pasture in front of the house has a creek and pond.
We have a gas grill on the lower patio.
The access road to the house, off of East River Road/ Highway 540, is level and paved.
There is a lot of wildlife in the area including deer, foxes, coyotes, hawks, osprey, and eagles, swooping down from the mountains to the river.
The kitchen is very well equipped and the pantry is supplied with paper goods, oils, spices, and whole bean french roast, a coffee grinder, and a Bunn coffee maker that brews a perfect 10 cups in 4 minutes.
We have 2 water heaters providing 140 gallons of hot water.
High-speed wireless internet service is provided. The family room offers a television with a DVD player, and ROKU internet TV streaming viewing with hundreds of channels. Other television channels available are the traditional networks, plus PBS, CW, and Create TV. There is a collection of children's toys and games. We have a new crib, compliments of one of our guests this summer, a high chair and two Pak-and-Plays.
Paradise Valley is home to some of the world's best fly-fishing river and spring creek venues. Numerous trail heads for treks into the Gallatin Range or the Beartooth/Absaroka Wilderness are just a short distance from the home. River rafting and horseback riding are available from a variety of vendors.
The Pine Creek Cafe is a mile away and offers a great menu as well as outdoor weekend entertainment during the summer months. They also have a small store with drinks, beer and wine, snacks, etc. and a Sunday brunch.
Chico Hot Springs and Resort, 13 miles south, offers two hot spring pools, one warm and large enough for a vigorous workout, and one hot for soaking, a casual grill style restaurant, and a very nice fine dining restaurant. Their Sunday morning brunch is excellent.
Livingston is a charming historic western town well known for it's art galleries, and has a nice selection of fine dining establishments.
Bozeman is 35 miles to the west via I-90 and offers a wide variety of shopping and dining, a vibrant downtown night life, Montana State University, and the world renowned Museum of the Rockies.

Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: We met and were married in Santa Cruz, California. As our family grew we migrated to the beautiful high desert country of Central Oregon, living and working on a cattle/horse ranch. It was a wonderful experience, living in the high plains, amid the Juniper forests, with a crisp/dry climate, and wide open spaces. It is very much like our wonderful Paradise Valley of Montana where we now live. After several years in Oregon we started a business designing and crafting a line of Christmas decorations. Our business grew rapidly and we moved to Southern California to be closer to wholesale markets, suppliers, and vendors. It was a formative and exciting time, selling to stores such as Nordstroms, Macy’s, Disney World, QVC, and many gift shops around the country.
Why the Owner Chose Paradise Valley:
We chose this exceptional part of the world after we visited and camped in Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding area. We decided this is where we wanted to raise our family. When we made the decision to move here we placed an ad in the local Livingston paper: “Wanted: 3-4 bedroom house with acreage and a shop/barn to lease with option to buy. Five children, a well behaved dog, and a cat.” The most wonderful couple called us. We met them at the house, signed a hand written lease on a yellow pad that day, gave them a check on a bank out of state, and moved in the next day. They loved our kids, and dog, and had five kids of their own! What sealed the deal was our children picking a bouquet of wild flowers and presenting it to the owners of the house. This is what we love about Montana. Real people. Another benefit was sending our four daughters to Pine Creek School, a two room schoolhouse just down the road, and the subject of a Norman Rockwell/Life Magazine painting many years ago.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we moved here in 1987 we loved the spacious 3600 square feet and four bedrooms which was perfect for our family of seven. But, the most important thing was the great shop/barn where we established our workshop and Susan’s design studio. It was unfinished, rather a rough space, and we had to refurbish it to our specs. But, it was perfect! What we really appreciated was the natural beauty, the mountains, the river, the Big Sky sunsets, the privacy, the seclusion, the opportunity to be away from the crowd, but, still, not too far, with Livingston about 10 miles away. A fax machine, and UPS, was all we needed in those days. Rather than expound upon the beauty that you will find here, we suggest you peruse the various pictures we have posted here. They are a small sample of why we love this special place. We invite you to come and visit us. We are centrally located in the Paradise Valley, close to Livingston and its fine restaurants and art galleries. The Paradise Valley is well renowned for its spring creek fishing venues, the nearby Pine Creek Lodge and Restaurant which has live music on Saturday nights, Chico Hot Springs and its exceptional fine dining, and numerous hiking trail heads and Yellowstone River fishing accesses. Or, if you just want to kick back, relax, and do not a whole lot of tourist stuff, just come to our place and enjoy the view. We are kindred spirits if such is your preference…
