About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-10.)

A well kept historic home with a location that is unbeatable! The Elliott Guest House is a completely restored home built in 1916. Fine linens, regional art, and a fully furnished kitchen grace the home. The Elliott Guest House is distinguished as one of the area's first vacation homes. It is a premiere place for flyfishers to stay. We love to host our guests. This is our only home that we manage, so your stay will not feel like a corporate booking or distant management company experience.

We are your premiere weekend getaway in fall and winter.

Our home is ideally suited within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and live theater. Fish or sightsee during the day (within a 15 minute drive) and come home to a charming home near restaurants and live theater at the end of the day.

For 100 years, we have had the pleasure of hosting expectant mothers, vacationers, extended families from the Livingston-Gardiner-Bozeman area, and yes, even actors from 'A River Runs Through It' and the 'Horse Whisperer'. If only our walls could talk and share with you all of the comings and goings at The Elliott House!

The home is very clean, and the owner pays close attention to details. There are three bedrooms and one bathroom that features an antique claw foot bathtub. A generous supply of books, magazines, and games abounds. Call ahead with your grocery list, and the owner will stock the home for you, book you for massage therapy at the nearby Firehall Fitness Center, or send you a list of yoga classes just one block from the home.

Enjoy the sunny front porch and walk to breakfast just two blocks downtown. Relax in our air conditioning and well kept furnishings.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Kara Stermitz is a fifth generation owner of the Elliott Guest House. Originally built by Kara's great-great grandmother, Sarah Schultz, the home was an early day boarding home for expectant mothers. Kara's great-great grandmother Sarah, a mid-wife, journeyed in her horse and buggy to outlying ranches to pick up expectant mothers. She pampered Mom and Baby, giving them respite they likely would not have again soon. Nowadays, Kara takes great enjoyment in offering the home to her guests as she raises her four children and works as a Marketing Administrator/Operations Manager for Confluence Consulting, a stream restoration and environmental consulting firm in Bozeman, MT. Kara has strong ties to Park County, as her family still ranches near Yellowstone Park. Kara is an avid flyfisher and can talk with you about many excursions and choices in the area. When she is not busy in Livingston, Kara chooses to travel elsewhere to flyfishing adventures!

Why the Owner Chose Livingston, MT, USA:
This property has always been in the ownership of a Stermitz or Elliott. Kara is an authentic Montana girl!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Elliott Guest House is uniquely located in close proximity (within a short walking distance) to shopping, art galleries, a fitness center, the Firehouse 5 Playhouse, Blue Slipper Theater, Montana's Rib and Chop House, and other amenities. Within a 5 minute drive lies the Yellowstone River, and within 15-20 minutes' drive are the Spring Creeks. The Elliott House is meticulously cared for.
