Bozeman farmhouse description

Set within a short distance to Yellowstone Park, 3 major world class ski resorts and blue ribbon fishing rivers, this home offers amenities you won't find anywhere else. The classic vernacular farmhouse is set against a backdrop of open fields and willows and water - home to abundant birdlife including Sandhill Cranes, Blue Herons, Bobolink, Canada Geese, ducks, pheasants, song and marsh birds. Rarely can you experience private fishing out the front door and unobstructed views of the many surrounding mountain ranges as well as close proximity to a desirable destination town.

This property has it all and will provide you with an experience of a lifetime.

Imagine casting your line into the trout pond out front, sharing a beach fire under the moon's glow, sitting out back watching the sunrise or sunset over the mountains or enjoying the horses in the front pasture. Cuddle up next to the warmth of the fire in the Tulikivi stove or cook up a delightful meal on the Wolf. Pick fresh vegetables from the kitchen garden. The Cottonwood is the place for you to recharge and unwind - find yourself in a peaceful place.
The home features wood and stone accents including a wood burning soapstone fireplace, a gas fireplace, gourmet kitchen, a large master suite with a jetted tub overlooking the pond view, two other bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate additional guests. Enjoy a cozy media room as well as ample dining area for the welcome meals after a full day of skiing or hiking or site seeing. The full wrap around covered porch provides another opportunity to enjoy each vista. A private sandy beach is the perfect spot to visit or play. Soak in the brand new hot tub facing the Bridger Range. Pasture out front provides animals with the best possible environment. Visit in the Spring to herald the arrival of the new baby cow and early summer to see the beehives come alive.

This is truly a one of a kind location.

              Owner info

              About the owner: Being an artist and native Montanan I have observed carefully the rapid changes in this beautiful state over the years. My hope is to offer my guests a chance to glimpse into the past. Staying here means living among wildlife, native ancient willow groves, live water fresh from the mountain source, and a peaceful location. The home is tastefully appointed for privacy and comfort and rest. I have been inspired to paint, to grow gardens and to hope and dream while living here. My desire is to share that experience with you. I am a naturalist, a beekeeper and raise non - hybrid natural beef and am planning lambs this year to produce wool for mittens.

              Why the Owner Chose Bozeman:
              The Cottonwoods epitomizes a dream of living in rural Montana - in the heart of the Gallatin Valley as well as the beauty of nature and the farming way of life.
