Bozeman condo description

Welcome to ASPEN GROVE VACATION CONDOS!

Conveniently located between Bozeman and Big Sky!!!

Whether you are a party of 1 or a group of 12 or somewhere in between your needs will be met at Aspen Grove.

Here you will have the opportunity to choose among our 2 COMFY CONDOS - we just call them the East Condo and the West Condo. Rent one, the other or both!!! The condos have a double lockout door between them so you can easily open the doors and enjoy the entire area.

Aspen Grove is licensed, as required through the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, under License No. 301252.

This is a perfect, centrally located hub for your stay when traveling in the area for a vacation; wedding; family reunion; rafting; skiing, hunting or fishing trip; interim housing; or business dealings.

Both condos are one level with a private entrance. In addition, there is a washer & dryer for your use.

Your accommodations are uniquely decorated to showcase the history and charm of Montana. Each great room contains a sitting area with hide-a-bed, dining area and kitchen. Bedrooms are spacious with private bathrooms and a small table and chairs.

The EAST CONDO, with ~ 950 sf, has 2 bedrooms with private baths. The Miner's Bedroom has an antique full sized bed with shower in the bath while the Homestead Bedroom has a 4-poster queen sized with tub/shower in the bath.

The WEST CONDO, with ~ 1150sf, also has 2 bedrooms with private baths. The Sportsman Bedroom has a queen sized log bed made on site with tub/shower in the bath. The Yellowstone Bedroom has a king sized log bed with handicapped accessible walk-in shower in the bath. As a special addition, the great room has a gas stove for heat and ambiance.

Your accommodations have magnificent views of the Spanish Peaks to the south and Bridger Range to the north. There is also a 40 acre park with stream nearby and a walking path along the irrigation canal.

Our biggest attraction, of course is historic Yellowstone National Park. We are also a relatively short drive to national forests; Gallatin, Yellowstone and Madison Rivers; Lewis and Clark Trail; museums and art galleries; Montana State University; Big Sky, Moonlight Basin and Bridger Bowl Ski Areas, horseback riding, golfing Lewis & Clark Caverns and much more.

For a little peace and quiet, step right outside your door onto 10 grass covered acres with 250 spruce trees - enjoy as you wish! And don't forget about the vegetable and flower gardens and lots of sunshine in the summer.

For a vigorous walk or run, take off on our graveled road and trek 1+ miles to the top of our hill. Moose, deer, elk, fox, coyotes, bear, mountain lion, wolves, woodchucks gophers and a number of bird species have been seen the area - some more frequent & some less frequent! (Thank goodness!)

If you want a winter get-away, consider x-country skiing right your front door or head to the mountains for downhill skiing at Bridger Bowl, Big Sky, or Moonlight Basin. There is also ice skating, sledding, hot springs and snowmobiling nearby.

Testimonials from our Guest Book: (1) What a fun place you have! The views are incredible. Beds are so comfy too! Linda, Spring Vale, CA. (2) Thanks for these wonderful rooms for the family reunion. I found some good friends in your guest book from Connecticut. Peter and Frances, Old Greenwich, CT. (3) Lloyd, you are the best! Your place is warm and cozy and a perfect place to stay.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About the owner: Alice came to Montana more than 35 years ago to attend graduate school at Montana State University. She loved it so much that she was determined to return when she retired. Lloyd met Alice in Nebraska. Alice's only requirement for getting married was that Lloyd had to be willing to move to Montana when they retired. So here we are!!! We each have a PhD in soil physics and enjoyed careers working in agricultural and environmental research and extension. Lloyd was a federal agricultural scientist in Nebraska and conducted research on rainfall - induced soil detachment, animal waste management, irrigation management, conservation tillage, soil compaction and soil quality. Alice was a professor at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. She conducted most of her research on farm fields specializing in rain - induced soil erosion on steep hillsides, soil compaction, reduced tillage systems, and crop production under drought conditions. Her work as a state extension specialist focused on translating research results on the above (and associated) topics into useful information for farmers, ranchers, agricultural companies, and local, state and federal agency personnel. She also served with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C. for two years. First as a Water Quality Grant Manager and then as the National Director of the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE). We love all four seasons here in Montana and shy away from becoming snowbirds! However, we do enjoy traveling around Montana when we have the time. Many of our recent Montana travels coincide with visits from our grandson from Houston. He is a real outdoorsman and a fantastic photographer - just check out his photos on this listing. He and our son also try to get here during spring break for a little downhill skiing (mid - March to early April is usually great snow) and family time.

              Why the Owner Chose Bozeman:
              Montana is very, very special to us and we truly enjoy sharing it with others, We came home to Montana when we retired and had the opportunity to purchase this property. After a near total renovation, we get to provide traditional Western hospitality to our guests. Coming 'home' meant living in the country on 10 acres of land we had purchased in 1990. The house is another story! We renovated the house because we moved it (yes, in one piece) from Gallatin Gateway proper to our little piece of paradise. It took about 4 hours to haul it 4 miles. So, here we are in the middle of the mountains, rivers, parks and national forests of the Rocky Mountains but near to Bozeman - an exploding medical, cultural, commercial,, university and hi-tech community. It is definitely the BIG SKY at its best!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              LOCATION! LOCATION!! LOCATION!!! * Central location; * Quiet country setting; * Modern facilities; * Great hospitallity This is what you get at the Aspen Grove according to our guests. Read them for yourself!! Otherwise, come, stay and read our Guest Registry. Most of our clients want to travel around the area to see historical and cultural sites, recreate, tour Yellowstone National Park as well as sight see and shop in Bozeman. Our central location allows you to get to most of these activities in 15 minutes to one hour. Is it quiet here? You bet! Come and listen to our 'silence and serenity'. We are located in an agricultural subdivision with about 30 homes on 600 acres. You can meander throughout our property and enjoy the canal, gardens, aspen groves, and 250 spruce trees. For the hearty, take a walk or run on Lower and Upper Tom Burke Roads. If you want to sit in the trees and listen to a creek, visit our 40 acre private park. Your modern country condos were newly built in 2001-2002. While the rooms are homey and have some family antiques, you have radiant in-floor hot water heat, private entrances, ceiling fans, all the amenities of home and cool summer nights due to Montana air and the recycled wood deck above your patio. This VRBO site is a good reflection of us and our hospitality. Also, when you stay here, Lloyd and I are a bottomless pit when it comes to information about anything in SW Montana. We consider it an honor to share our information. If you want Bozeman or Big Sky right outside your doorstep, the Aspen Grove Vacation Condos are not for you. But if you are willing to have city life just 15-20 minutes away as well as an extensive array of activities within an hour's drive, Aspen Grove might just be the place for you. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to share with you. We hope to earn your business!
