Bozeman house description
Welcome home to Montana. Whether this is your first time in the area, or you're a frequent visitor, our home offers everything you are looking for during the four seasons. We offer fishing 100 feet from our back door, an experienced guide service that can take you fishing to spots others don't know about or all the way to Yellowstone for a tour. We even have a local baker that can have breakfast goodies waiting for you in the morning. Or you can just choose to relax and unwind.
First off, this house will not come off as a rental. You won't walk in and feel like you've been cheated. There won't be any wobbly furniture bought at yard sales or spartan accommodations. When you stay here, you stay knowing that everything is provided for you, and then some.
My wife and I are teachers, and when summers roll around we like to get away. Montana is one of the many destinations that we love. You have mountains around you, rivers and creeks, and a town that has everything. We looked for years, trying to find the right place in Montana, and we think we did. Even the inspector who came out to look over the place claimed that he sees a property like this 'maybe once a year.' And that's what we thought, too.
It's on 3 acres at the end of a road--it's actually an island--so you will not see or hear a neighbor from a surrounding home. It's like your own personal 'island' in the middle of the country, as there is a major creek running through the property on one side and a seasonal creek on the other. BUT, you're not in the country. Only half a mile down the road is Main St., which can take you in any direction. We're two minutes from Four Corners (gateway to fishing and skiing), five minutes to the first big grocery store, and ten minutes to either the University or Downtown. It's a special property. Less than 100 feet from the back door is the above-mentioned trout-filled creek that runs right through the property (400 feet of creek access just on the property).
The house is one of many levels. The first floor is the living room, with fireplace, television, stereo, and an unobstructed view of the Bridgers. There is also a guest bedroom with its own full bath, along with a half bath off the living room.
Walking downstairs takes you to the kitchen, where everything is provided. A small sitting area is to one side, while a dining area is to the other side. An air-conditioned (and heated) sun room offers more access to hanging out close to the kitchen. A washer and dryer are also featured. If you don't like eating inside, a wrap-around deck surrounds the house, complete with a grill hooked up to natural gas.
Walking down another level gets you the man cave. Television, stereo, and a separate bedroom and bathroom for privacy. There's also a wet bar area in the man cave to keep drinks cold if you don't feel like walking less than 10 stairs to the kitchen.
Upstairs is the master, with a steam shower in the bathroom. The room opens up to another deck that overlooks the property and the creek. Opening the screen door will allow the creek to lull you to sleep at night. This floor also features a den/office, that can also be used as a bedroom. Its concept is open--it overlooks the living room--but it is still an ample space.
Upstairs even more is a game room, which offers more things to do, more views, and a library of books, movies, and cds.
Outside is absolutely beautiful, and one of the major reasons we bought the place. The creek is nice, but there's also the deck around the house that overlooks it, a huge yard, a putting green, horseshoes, and a deck and gazebo right on the water.
There's space for everyone here, depending on how you want to use it. If three or four buddies are going fishing, they all have their own bedrooms. If it's just a couple, you have your choice of many nice rooms. If it's a family occasion, you can fit and hang out together, or find privacy on any of the floors, or outside.
We look forward to coming here every time and find something new to do each day. And that's what we hope for you. Let us know and we will make your stay a good one. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect home for our large family!
Perfect home for our large family!
Tom this is long overdue but we want to thank you for making our time in Montana with our children, grandchildren and our parents a great one! You did a lot to accommodate our dates and the home was perfect. Over and over throughout our stay different family members mentioned how nice the home was and the multiple bedrooms, bathrooms and levels gave privacy and comfort! The deer in the yard every day as well as the turkey were also fun to watch. We ended up catching several nice brown trout right out the back door in the creek and some were even over 20"! The sunsets on the deck were so relaxing! Thanks again for all you did for us and for the great home! We will be back! Phil & Joanna Frasier Rhinelander, WI.

Owner response: I'm so glad you guys had a great time--that's what our place is designed for. However, you will have to inform me as to the whereabouts for catching those 20" browns, as I have caught some nice fish out back, but never that big. We will hopefully see you back soon. Thanks for the nice review.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My wife and I are teachers and love having the time off to travel with our son. I like fishing and the outdoors, but I really like to come home to a nice place and have a good city nearby. I'm not getting any younger, so 'roughing it' doesn't hold the appeal it used to. My wife enjoys everything except fishing, which seems kind of tragic now that we have this place. Our 7-yr-old likes to run outside, so you could pretty much figure that he had a lot to do with our Montana purchase.
Why the Owner Chose Bozeman:
If you've ever been to Bozeman, you probably entertained the idea of living there. We thought about it for a while, ended up with a second home in Montreal for 5 years, but always kept coming back to Big Sky Country. It's great--you just feel different in Montana and we searched long and hard for this location. The house is nice and has every amenity, but it's the location that will keep us coming back.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can fish right on the property or walk the creek a little. The neighbors were nice and offered suggestions on where to cast. Everything is paved, so you can ride a bike anywhere. It was fun watching my kid walk down the creek and collect wild turkey feathers. We have a putting green, horseshoes, along with plenty of grass to run on or throw a ball around. I can't wait to be there each summer.
