Property description

It is the best of both worlds... you can relax, put your feet up, and enjoy the stunning views of the Paradise Valley of the Yellowstone, one of the prettiest places in the West. At the same time, you can also enjoy the comfort and convenience of a first-class home base from which you can launch your dream vacation, fish the Yellowstone River just out your front door, hike nearby 10,000-foot Emigrant Peak which is practically in your back yard, soak your bones just down the road at Chico Hot Springs, and see the wolves of Yellowstone Park just a short drive away. We've also set up the property to host your wedding, rehearsal party or family reunion. Just putting the final touches on the party barn for the 2015 summer season.

Your family will have plenty of space for a two-week vacation, but the location also works perfectly for weekend getaways. There is also the separate, historic, Fisherman's Cottage for even more privacy, and the entire property is terrific for a small wedding/reception or family reunion.

Fish, hike, raft, sightsee, relax any time of year. Less than an hour from Bozeman's airport, but far enough to hear the coyotes sing every night. It is all right here for you, at The Yellowstone House...!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We purchased the house and cabin in 2004 as we wanted to have a getaway for our family that was close enough to our home in Bozeman but also light years away in attitude and close to Yellowstone Park and the River. It has turned to be the best move we've ever made. We get to spend time there as a family and share it with the world as well!

Why the Owner Chose Paradise Valley:
I spent several years working in Yellowstone when I was younger and had fallen in love with the Paradise Valley. It is one of the most beautifual and relaxing places on earth.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are less than an hour from Yellowstone Park, two minutes from the river, ten minutes from a hike in the mountains,and ten minutes from world renowned Chico Hot Springs. The views from our deck are unsurpassed and the house has everything. Any questions?
