gathering here and the house worked so well for us. I have never before rented space so well equipped, well stocked, home-like and yet practical. An amazing combination.

Thanks for what you do and the way you do it.

Fun House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This truly was a fun house for our family. We enjoyed ping-pong, fuze ball and the hot tub. The location is great, quiet neighborhood, close to the sourdough trail, museums, the college campus and downtown. Plenty of parking for all. I highly recommend it for a family get away.

The property had everything it advertised.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. We had grandkids entertained with downstairs TV. Videos and great toys. The hot tub was great we saw some deer walk by while we were in it. The deck is a great place for a barbeque party. If we ever come to Bozeman again we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have Kari's family stay in our "Fun House". They were in town for a family wedding and were able to host a rehearsal dinner complete with fantastic grilling weather and open air ping pong tournament. Teens & toddlers were comfortable and had a great time. We would be delighted for this family to return to our property.

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We were in Bozeman for a family wedding. Our week's stay in this home was top notch! Denise and Tom were very welcoming and helpful. It was the perfect fit for our family of six adults and 3 small children. It's in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to the downtown area of Bozeman as well as the university and Museum of the Rockies. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance just around the corner from the house. Sola Cafe quickly became a favorite place for breakfast thanks to Denise's suggestion. The home is decorated beautifully, quite comfortable, and well stocked with all the things we needed. Our favorite spot in the home was the outside deck. We spent quite a bit of time out there enjoying the pleasant weather. The kids enjoyed the toy corner in the downstairs family room.

Denise was quite helpful with suggestions for places to eat around Bozeman. We look forward to staying at this home on future trips to Bozeman. You won't be disappointed with this choice. Thank you Denise and Tom.

Comfortable and pleasant Tracy Avenue House

  • 4 of 5

We were in Bozeman for a memorial service, so it was not a vacation. This home accommodated our group of eleven very comfortably with sufficient privacy for all. Kitchen, dining room and deck with both sitting and eating space with a lovely view of wooded back yard was very pleasant. In following the format below, the description was accurate, it was very clean, there was good customer service, and we would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

The proximity of Sola Cafe -- literally a stone's throw away -- was definitely a plus. We were very appreciative of its availability and grateful to a colleague in Bozeman who found it for us.

Relaxing, comfortable, and perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Bozeman could not have been more perfect! Denise was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. We came to the area for a family wedding, but also enjoyed day trips into the mountains, eating at local restaurants, and browsing the art galleries of downtown Bozeman. We originally considered staying outside of the city in the country, but we were so glad we settled on this property instead. It is in a quiet neighborhood about a half mile from the Museum of the Rockies and its location was so central to everywhere we went.

The home was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well equipped with ample towels, bedding, and so many thoughtful and practical items in every room for our convenience. The toys and games in the family room kept the youngest member of our family entertained. Relaxing in the backyard hot tub was a nice way to end the day. Spa towels were provided in the laundry room which led right outside to the hot tub - perfect set-up. Tip: Before buying groceries, peek into all the kitchen cupboards. It was a pleasant surprise to find a variety of spices and some other non-perishable staples for our use.

Denise, it was such a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for your hospitality and for helping to make our stay in Bozeman such an enjoyable experience!
