Property description

Our vacation getaway is located in the historic little town of Emigrant, MT. People from all over the world come to paradise valley to enjoy world-class fly fishing and easy access to Yellowstone national park (30 miles). Paradise valley is nestled in the Gallatin national forest surrounded by spectacular mountain views of the absaroka mountain range. To the east, majestic emigrant peak dominates the view at 10,921 feet. Emigrant is a quiet country town with a hospitable western atmosphere! Conveniently located within walking distance there is a bank, post office, bakery, general store, gas station, fly shop, gift shop & ice cream emporium. There are numerous public fishing access sites for the Yellowstone river, national forest access sites and Dailey lake which are all only a short distance away throughout paradise valley. When you arrive at the townhouse, you will have access to free wi-fi. Please contact us, prior to your arrival so that we can answer any question you may have about Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding area. we are minutes away from Chico Hot Springs Resort and day spa where you can enjoy the hot springs pools and 3 restaurants (fine dining, saloon & pool side grill). Also available at Chico: live music every fri. & sat. Night, a variety of horse back riding options, white water rafting & dog sled treks in the winter.
Just a short drive north on 89, you will find Livingston, MT. Featuring gourmet restaurants, museums, community theaters, a movie theater, art galleries (summer art walks) and uniquely western shops.

The north entrance to YNP is located 30 miles south on 89 in the town of Gardiner. Gardiner is shadowed by the oldest and most historic entrance into YNP through the Roosevelt arch. In our opinion, YNP is one of the most spectacular and scenic places on earth. This historic town is home to a variety of restaurants, gift shops, two gas stations, a grocery store and adventure based companies. The north entrance is the only entrance open to the park year round. This is a great little town to simply walk around and explore!
At the townhouse you can relax at the end of the day on the upper deck or lower patio, watching the sun work its magic on the face of Emigrant Peak. While there are numerous activities available to you, you can also simply relax and enjoy your picturesque surroundings. The townhouse was built in 2003 and is approximately 1200 sq ft. Amenities are:
*air-conditioning (master bedroom ONLY)
