About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8), Tipi Sleeps 2-3

Come and spend a few days or weeks on the Yellowstone. Visit Yellowstone National Park, Soak and dine at Chico, Go to a play in Livingston. Or just relax and watch the River flow by.

This home is ideal for families wanting a great vacation location or couples wanting a weekend getaway. Play, relax, refresh and watch the wildlife in a home poised high above the Yellowstone River with stunning views of the river and the mountains. Fish from your own back yard. Watch the resident Bald Eagle fish and the White Pelicans float the Yellowstone. Relax and refresh while lounging on the patio or in the sun room in the sunlight. Cuddle in the warmth of the fire in the evening. Be awed by the star filled sky as you see more stars than you have ever seen. Search for the Big and Little Dipper, the Milky way and other constellations and galaxies. Watch the snow line move down the mountains as fall and winter come to Paradise Valley in Big Sky country.

Visit Yellowstone, America's First National Park 35 miles to the south and see Bears, Elk, Deer, Moose, Bison and a host of other animals. Tour the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, watch Old Faithful Geyser put on a spectacular show, tour the hot pots at Mammoth Hot Springs and dine in the 100 year old Old Faithful Lodge. Soak in the natural beauty of the Boiling River.

Go horseback riding, drive a dogsled, cross country ski or hike in the mountains, and then soak in the natural hot springs or go to the Day Spa at Chico Hot Springs 7 miles to the south. Enjoy a leisurely dinner amid rustic elegance in the Dining Room at Chico, long noted as one of the regions best restaurants. Kick up your heels to live music every weekend in the Chico Saloon, or enjoy a game of pool or watch sports on the live screen TV.

Enjoy local live theater, shop, dine, golf, hunt, fish and visit the museums in Livingston, Montana 20 to the north.

Visit Bozeman, Montana 50 miles to the west and tour the Museum of the Rockies, wander along Main Street, attend a concert or a play, or catch a movie. Shopping opportunities are varied and plentiful. The closest airport is just west of Bozeman in Belgrade, MT

Point of View is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house situated on a bluff overlooking the Yellowstone River. The home has a great room kitchen, dining and living area. The fabulous sun porch has additional dining facilities and a large cushioned built-in bench just perfect for that afternoon snooze or sleeping the kids.

Walk, or drive if you prefer (4 wheel drive recommended), down the winding path to private river frontage where you can picnic, fish or easily launch your boat or raft. The lower property is two lots, the second lot has a Tipi which can be rented together or separately from the house. It has it's own fire pit and picnic area. The boat launch is shared between the two lots. The house has it's own fire pit and picnic area which is private from the Tipi guests.

TIPI RENTAL: Also, you can add 2-3 more people by renting our Tipi for an additional $85.00 per night. This "Glamping" (Glamour Camping) Tipi is situated privately on the Yellowstone River just a walk down the hill from the main house. It has a queen and twin bed and can accommodate three adults or kids . A perfect spot for a romantic stay or great fun for the kids camping by the fire. When booking the house be sure to ask for availability of the Tipi if you wish to add it to your reservation.

Point of View is available as an all season rental. Fishing is great in the spring, summer and fall, hunting opportunities abound in the fall and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are winter opportunities near by in the Absoroka Mountains. Hike in the Gallatin, Crazy and Absoroka Mountain Ranges. The opportunity to relax and watch the bald eagles, deer, white pelicans and the river flow by exists all year long.

All this and end-of-the-road privacy too. There are no neighbors to the East, South or West and one great one to the North.

This is a great site for a summer wedding. We have had 3 weddings here in the past and the bride and groom loved the idea of being married right next to this historic river. WOW! Book your wedding now. The owner is a Marriage Officiant and is able to conduct your wedding for you.

Come and visit Southwest Montana. We have crystal clear air, wide open spaces, lots to see and do or just sit and enjoy the privacy and the quiet in a perfect vacation setting.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Your Hosts Gordon, Pat and Paul Mabie. My wife Pat and I spent 24 years in the U.S. Army. After we retired we moved to Bozeman, MT to be closer to the grandkids. We are RVers who love to travel. We spend our summers in Montana and our winters in Key West, Florida. We are delighted to be able to offer our vacation rental home to guests who want to visit Southwest Montana. Gordon has recently become a Marriage Officiant and is able to conduct weddings. at Point of View

Why the Owner Chose Livingston, MT, USA:
Our son, Paul, wanted to purchase a home in Montana. We joined in the purchase with him. We fell in love with this home and its location on the Yellowstone River.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can fly fish from the river bank, swim (life preservers recommended) play horseshoes, float the river in a tube, boat, raft or life preserver, picnic or just relax and watch the river flow by. Deer use the 800 acre undeveloped land next door to the south as a river crossing. There is a bald eagle that fishes and patrols the river. White pelicans float downstream often.
