About Lauren Kozlow

We built and participated in the design and construction of this home in the mountains between Livingston and Bozeman in 1995 as a place to raise our three children, then ages 9, 11 and 13. They are grown and live in NY, VA and MT. We are now living and working in Billings, making our home available to vacation renters. This is a perfect spot for a quite retreat with a loved one and large enough for a family reunion. Lots of hills to climb and forest/creek to explore, along with a night in the tipi across the road, down by the creek. One night we were wakened by a mama and baby moose feeding in the willows next to the tipi, we watched them in the moonlight for a long time. These are magical moments.

Lauren Kozlow purchased this house in 1995

Why Lauren Kozlow chose Yellowstone Country

We are only 20 minutes from the Yellowstone River and some of the world's best fly fishing and one hour from Yellowstone National Park. Bozeman is a half hour away and Livingston even closer. Bridger Bowl ski area is 40 minutes via Jackson Creek Road.

What makes this house unique

Having the mountains in our backyard and the creek to play in added a unique dimension to our children's lives. One could feel the peacefulness of the area as soon as one started the five-mile drive home after working in town all day. Sitting on the deck and watching the sunset is a moment to cherish. We are still in awe of the great beauty here and are very happy to share our home with our guests. The wildflowers in spring and summer cover the hillsides around the house. If you like bird watching the deck is a great place to sit with a bird book and binoculars. Moose feed on the willows down by the creek, black bear visit occasionally, deer are abundant and a herd of elk may wander through the property depending on the time of year. There is never a dull moment in nature at Aspen Hill Retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We decided to have our annual girls vacation at Aspen Hill Retreat and it has been an amazing time. The cabin is beautiful and well cared for. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place. We saw a momma moose and her baby on hill above the teepee. Snow shoeing, cooking healthy food, hot tubing and most importantly have a cozy beautiful space to escape the "real world" and enjoy each others company has made this a trip we'll never forget!! Happy New Year!

More than you expect!

  • 5 of 5

Our five night stay at Aspen Hill was simply amazing. The VRBO site made it look good, but does not do it justice. The house is beautiful, warm, comfortable, accomadating...all to the highest marks.

Lauren has thought of everything also. There was nothing lacking. We even found a first aid kit in the pantry for a slight cooking injury:)

The house and grounds were meticulously kept. Our family gathering of 18 fit very comfortably for a dinner party.

Thank you so much Lauren for opening your family home...we will cherish our family memories from there as well!

Awesome house !

  • 5 of 5

Love when I rent a house and all basics are there like spices, Pam, aluminum foil etc! The views on the way to house after the main turnoff are some of the prettiest we saw on our trip - what a gorgeous area of our great country!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas at this house and loved it. We felt at home. It was decorated for us, the fireplace was cozy, and the house was very clean and well cared for! We stayed busy with sledding and snowmobiling. I would book this house again!

Ideal gathering place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home-away-from home this was for a two week family reunion. We had family members from three continents, with ages from 8 to 80 staying here, and everyone absolutely loved the place. Our home is a small cabin nearby, so it was great for us to have the extra room and the convenience of a large place to gather for meals and telling stories of our days' adventures (white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, touring Yellowstone Park, shopping in Bozeman and Livingston). Some of the more intrepid younger generation slept out in the tipi for a night or two, although the mosquitoes drove them back indoors eventually. Soaking in the hot tub after the children were asleep, watching the multitude of stars slide by was a highlight.

The home was clean and well organized, with lots of extra linens, blankets, pillows and towels as well as a great laundry room to keep up with an active family. The big kitchen was a delight to use. Lauren and Michelle were very responsive when we had questions. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to stay in their home.
