About the property

Quiet, view cabin, studio w/loft bedroom, 1 Bath, Dogs ok w/small pet fee

Dexter Peak cabin is perfectly situated on 25 acres at the base of the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains. This cabin is one of two cabins that we own, the other one about 1/4 mile away on a separate 20 acre parcel on its own which can be rented together or separately. See Elk Ridge cabin vrbo #191225. A 24' camping trailer has been added on the same parcel, but privately located behind our large garage. The RV has a queen bed with new innerspring mattress, as well as two bunk beds, measuring 32" x 72" and the dinette makes into a 4' x 5' bed. The RV is self-contained all on its own with its own campfire pit, bbq, shower, refrigerator/freezer, stove, tv, stereo! The tariff for the RV is $55-100 depending on the month.

Just 35 miles north of Yellowstone Park, these accommodations offer breathtaking views of four mountain ranges. Varying lights of the Montana skies and glimpses of nature and wildlife soothe the soul year round. Perfect for creative reflection, a romantic getaway, that special fishing trip or as a home base while enjoying the wealth of activities, breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife the area provides.

The Dexter Peak Cabin sleeps two, has a loft bedroom with a king-size bed and a full-sized, firm quality futon couch on the main floor. Please notice the staircase going to the king-size bed. The ceiling height is between 4-5' above the king bed, one cannot stand up. The cabin has a full kitchen, stocked with the basic essentials, a gas BBQ, television, VCR/DVD with a selection of classic movies, a washer/dryer, and an outdoor firepit located at the lower portion of our property in the draw. A rustic steel fire pit has been added outside the cabin for your convenience, firewood is provided.

The cabin sits on the edge of a meadow with its own private yard and covered porch. There is a wrought iron table and chairs and lounge chairs to enjoy the peace and quiet and views of the 11,000 foot tall mountains before you.

The door opens to a complete kitchen with hickory cabinets, a full bathroom and laundry area and a cozy living room with television, with built-in VCR/DVD, CD player, table and futon couch. A nice selection of videos and books adorn the bookshelf for your enjoyment after the adventures of the day. A rustic staircase rises to the loft with a king-sized bed. Foam sleeping pads are available for small children.

The kitchen is well appointed with a refrigerator, four-burner stove, microwave, cookbooks, pots and pans, dishes, glassware, knives, toaster, blender, and coffeepot and grinder. Laundry soap, iron, ironing board and dryer sheets are provided for your convenience.

About Vicky

I moved to Paradise Valley almost twenty years ago for the closeness to nature, and small town friendliness and to live a bit more simply. I met my husband, Gary, at age 39, and married a few years later. And through him, I discovered a new talent in myself with art. We purchased an old log bar/apartment and added a 1800 square foot art gallery and frame shop. Gary is a painter and framer and we are lucky to feature so many friends fine art and crafts. We feel like we are on vacation every day looking at the constantly changing light on the mountains and wildlife in our area with our two Shihtzu's, Kopi and Jessie, our deer-headed chihuahua, Gabe (an angel in disguise), and Buford, our orange cat, a gentle warrior. My mother and brother have moved here from Seattle and are enjoying the sunny skies, mountains and wildlife of the area too.

Vicky purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Vicky chose Livingston

Location is ideal, quiet but close to Livingston, fishing streams and river, intimate view of mountains, close to Yellowstone Park and a few miles from Chico Hot Springs, a favorite for locals and travellers alike!

What makes this cabin unique

Views of wildlife, mule deer, red foxes, elk, eagles, red-tail hawks and many other birds. The changing light on the mountains, the sunsets, views of approaching storms, quiet and star lit skies are a constant reminder of the miracle of life! We are grateful. We hope that sharing this special spot with you will be a lasting gift for you.

Paradise valley has a name for a reason. The cabin was more than we needed as for amenities. Cooking utensils and spices were ample (my wife accidentally used a pepper oil thinking it was olive oil. a pleasant surprise.) Washer & dryer with all needs were supplied. Vicky was so gracious, calling us from AZ shortly after our arrival to be sure all was OK. Her husband Gary looked after us and was very knowledgeable of the area and history including local Indian (a term most native american's prefer) studies. He also runs an art gallery down the road and is an acclaimed artist. My wife found several of his pieces irresistible . Even though it was her birthday I was able to talk her down and only acquired One very nice piece for our new home. If it weren't an 8 hr. drive I'm positive we would visit more often. Only 3 small detractions. 1. Cell service available. 2. Almost not enough headroom in sleeping loft (it only adds to the charm). 3. My personal desire was for a cabin nestled into the foothills (However plenty of space. you can see neighbors homes but do not feel crowded in any sense).
