About Vicky Holland

I love to travel and have had a dream of owning a small resort with cabins and now that is what I am doing! I was born in Snoqualmie, Washington and have lived around the Seattle area during college. Sold real estate with Windermere in Kirkland for 15 years and then discovered Paradise Valley, Montana.

Vicky Holland purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Vicky Holland chose Livingston

Great cabin on a very special piece of property with views of the mountains and the Yellowstone River to boot!

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet, views, lots of wildlife, great location near Yellowstone, Livingston and Chico Hot Springs.

Beautiful, cozy cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful March weekend in the mountains with our pup! Elk Ridge Cabin was the most perfect, cozy cabin. It had all the amenities you would need, kitchen supplies, blow dryer, guide books and local information on the area and we were even greeted with home baked goodies! We sipped our morning coffee while watching a herd of mule deer walk through the yard and House Finches at the feeder before adventuring out. We hope to return and highly recommend Elk Ridge and the Hollands!

Breath-taking weekend get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed the weekend in this cozy cabin. Upon driving up to the cabin there were elk everywhere in the pasture that surrounds it. Such an amazing site. The cabin is better then described. Very comfortable, extremely well stocked kitchen every gadget you could think of including spices, oils, paper towels etc. Just bring some groceries and your clothes everything else is provided. TV, games, reading material, etc. Vicky was very accommodating and checked in to make sure we were comfortable and the cabin was warm enough, it was a very cold winter day and it was very cozy. Great location close to Chico Hot Springs, a short drive to Gardner-Yellowstone National Park and not too far from Livingston where we enjoyed an evening movie at the local theater. We hope to return again soon.

What a wonderful little cabin! The near-by homes were far enough off that you had privacy, the view was wonderful and the elk were there morning and night every day. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay there for Christmas2017
