Property 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 a private pond 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 yourself casting a line into the trout filled pond or 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 Cottonwoods is the place for you to recharge and unwind - find yourself in a vibrant 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. The thirteen baby chicks are now living in the new chicken coop and doing great with the help of the incubator lights.
Tree planting starts in April with hundreds of bare root plants started here at the farm from cuttings. The Canada Geese have nested on the island again and cows seem to be doing great waiting to be let out in the increasingly green pastures. All the harrowing is done except one remaining field.
Bees are going to be here by the end of the month!

  • The new chicks are now living outside as free range happy chickens. Guests are encouraged to gather and eat fresh eggs while staying. Our new farm dog is very friendly and is learning to help move the cows in the pasture. Garden is partially planted now with peas and lettuces for guests enjoyment. There is always lots to do on the farm! There will be lots of new baby fish and I found a turtle last year to watch. Guests are welcome to fish the pond and it has huge Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brown Trout. The fawns are born in June and like to hide with their mother's in the thickest parts of the old willow groves. If you are lucky you will see them when they are so tiny with spots. The bees arrive May first and will be set up well away from the main house. Interested guests will be able to participate in caring for and learning about the hives. ...moreless

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 completely unique 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 organically grown non - hybrid beef. This is tree planting time as the birds love to hide in the willows and I need more habitat!!!!!!! Lots of coyotes in Spring and Fall - as well as an owl roosting on the roof hoohooing at night. He comes to guard and comfort.

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. This property is something I dreamed of having all my life. The story of that dream is called Rex's Story and is being written even as I write this. Come and live a dream of your own and create some memories you will never forget!
