About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Queen Sleeper, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 7)
Designed as a hip and modern abode by award-winning architectural firm Thinktank AIA, it has many high-end features. Upon completion, the house was given a HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARD for blending in so nicely with it’s downtown historic neighborhood and was FEATURED IN “AT HOME MAGAZINE” for its innovative design and outdoor space:
“The main floor features an open living and dining room with dark poured concrete floors which include radiant heat and and crisp white walls. A combination of metal, wood and earth-tones create a modern yet characteristically Montana feel. Tucked at the back of the house the kitchen continues the wood and metal theme found throughout the house. A loft-style floor plan allows for the maximum amount of light on the main floor as well as the master bedroom upstairs. Cork flooring on the second floor appeal to both the rustic and modern sensibility. A walk out upper deck that opens off the master bedroom is a sheltered place to take in the view of the Bridger Mountains. …The master bathroom has something for everybody with both a classic clawfoot tub and a modern, pale green tiled shower. Surprisingly, since from the outside it appears to be almost completely underground, the walk-out basement is almost as light as the upper floors, Outside, THE SMELL OF CEDER AND FLOWERS DRIFTS ON THE BREEZE. The garden is a combination of young trees and hearty native plants and flowers, Exchanging grass for small wood chips and stone walkways makes the yard a beautiful and accessible oasis.”

And, for your experiences, we have put together a personalized “INSIDERS GUIDE” to easily find the best places that locals know and you might not otherwise find.
Our DOWNTOWN LOCATION IS PERFECT because it is in a quiet tree lined street in the historic district yet within EASY WALKING DISTANCE (a few blocks!) to a food coop for groceries, a food and salad bar with different cuisine every day; elegant and casual dining, trendy boutiques, art walks, bluegrass music, coffeehouses, local ice cream, dancing in tea shops, yoga, library, theatre, wine and cheese, breweries, outdoor fireplaces, farmers markets, cultural arts center, art galleries, theatre, local rivers, and the many Bozeman festivals held year round in and around main street. Yes all of these and THE OUTDOORS!
Go green and rent a bike from a sister organization, Bozeman Bike Rentals which uses an electric bike and trailer to deliver and pick up bikes. Bike to a nearby trail called called “Main Street to the Mountains” and BIKE PATH-LINED STREETS THAT WIND THROUGH THE HISTORIC DISTRICT to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Visit nearby Montana State University for Shakespeare in the Park or the Museum of the Rockies. Begin a hike or bike a block or so away through a forest. In the evening, walk to the farmers market for provisions or dinner by a river. Nearby Peet’s Hill overlooks town and here you will find dogs, happy people and one of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen.

Bozeman Cottage Vacation Rentals
About: The Gallatin Valley has always been home to me and I started Bozeman Cottage in 1998 to help keep me here. Since then the business has grown mostly by accident and I started managing IdylWest Modern Guest House in 2013. Southwest Montana will capture you with its rugged, wild, landscape and majestic mountain views. You can truly experience why it's called Big Sky Country. My company is small enough to make sure you are welcomed warmly, and I'm sure you'll relish this spacious, quiet space to unwind and enjoy the surrounding mountains and scenery, as well as the excitement of being right in the heart of Bozeman.
Why Bozeman, MT, USA:
Catch prize blue ribbon trout at several public accesses along the Gallatin River just a few miles away, ski three downhill and two cross country ski resorts, hike in an area replete with well-groomed hiking trails, and bike the extensive trails in Bozeman itself. It's a short 30 minutes to Bridger Bowl, 60 minutes to Big Sky ski resort, another 35 minutes to Yellowstone Park AND the relaxing, luxurious Bozeman Hot Springs and Spa is just 12 miles away!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
New, bright, and hip, this house is a refreshing blend of modern design and casual comfort. Passive solar design fills the house with sunlight year round and the sun's heat in winter.
