Need a break from life, well this is the place to spend some quality time with family, friends or a significant other and just unwind! This vacation rental is situated in the heart of the Gallatin National Forest and adjacent to the beautiful Yellowstone River. Trout fishing in the Yellowstone River is world renowned, as are the spectacular mountain views! The townhouse is situated in the shadow of Emigrant peak (10,921’) in the heart of the Paradise Valley and is only three miles away from the famous Chico Hotspring and Day Spa! Chico features live music every Friday and Saturday nights and the Hotsprings are very popular with all age groups! Hiking, biking, horseback trail rides, rafting, fishing, live theater, shopping, and antiquing are just a few of the activities that are available! This area has so much to offer and the activities available are endless! It is no wonder why they call this Paradise Valley!

Whatever you choose to do, you can tailor your vacation to whatever you want it to be. Your vacation can be an adventurous outdoor experience or a more laid back experience enjoying the amenities of the local cities of Livingston, Bozeman and Billings. Livingston was just featured on the Travel Channel’s “No Reservations with Anthony Bordain”, which highlighted the amazing dinning and outdoor opportunities with locally sourced organic ingredients! The oldest and most historic north entrance into Yellowstone National Park through the Roosevelt Arch is only 30 miles away where you will enter into the most majestic and scenic park in the world! Due to the volcanic geology history of the park, the scenery is absolutely incredible. Wildlife is abundant in the park, so there is never a dull moment! In addition the North Entrance is the only entrance into the park that is open year around! So don't hesitate to come see the other side of Yellowstone in the fall or winter!

The fall colors of the aspens and the contrasting evergreens make it an unbelievable scenic experience! Three miles away from your front door is the heavenly Chico Hotsprings Resort and Day Spa! So after a long day relax over a gourmet dinner and take a relaxing dip in the hot springs! The townhouse is fully equipped, so if you choose you can just relax, prepare your own meals, soak in the deep garden style bathtub, watch High Def Direct TV, and sleep in your own cozy bed!

Emigrant is a cozy country town with friendly Montana atmosphere! Located within walking distance there is a bank, post office, bakery, grocery store, gas station, fly shop, gift shop, diner and saloon!

About Drew Ellis

My wife and I arrived in Montana in a new job in the summer of 1998 and fell in love with the wide open unspoiled space of Montana. Every year I would explore a little more of it and discovered the Paradise Valley the summer of 2000 while visiting Yellowstone National Park. I worked in the park for three years, and we’ll just say we both fell in love with the area. I currently volunteer in South Dakota for the National Wildlife Refuge System and we cannot wait to get back to the Paradise Valley to unwind every chance I get!

Drew Ellis purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Drew Ellis chose Yellowstone Country

After living in Montana for nine years, ya just get addicted! They don't call it Big Sky Country for nothing! My wife and I come back to unwind and just get rejuvenated for life in the real world! Every year I bring friends and family together in the Paradise Valley as a base of operations! We hit the ground running and take advantage of the fishing, sightseeing, hiking, rafting, camping and fabulous dinning! The thermal hot springs in the area are endless and are heavenly after a day of having fun! The weather in Montana is wonderful and is always sunny! If ya don’t like the weather, wait fifteen minutes and the glorious sun will be shinning again! I purchased the townhouse to take full advantage of the area because you just can’t see or do it all in one visit. Due to the overwhelming amount of enjoyment that we have here, my friends and family encouraged me to make it available year round for everybody to enjoy! The townhouse is equipped with everything to make it truly a paradise for relaxing! Enjoy and don’t hesitate to call me for suggestions!

What makes this townhome unique

Vacationing in the Paradise Valley is truly unique due to the location. We really enjoy dining in the Dining Room at Chico Hotsprings! A truly fine dining experience! Or sometimes we like going to the Chico Hotspring lounge for live music and dancing on weekends! The do it yourself outdoor opportunities here are endless with fishing, hunting, skiing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, rafting, snowmobiling, and sight-seeing to name a few. Being located in the heart of the Gallatin National Forest and Yellowstone National Park public access is wide open! Pine Creek Falls is only a short distance away, so if you want to take a short hike, you will discover a beautiful waterfall! If you are looking for a more guided experience, you can experience all of this and more with the numerous guided activities that abound here! You can arrange fully guided events, so you can just relax and not worry about a thing! This is area is very family friendly and is a wonderful place to let children just cut loose!

Ummmm.. Can I just live here forever?

  • 5 of 5

So.... I grew up literally down the road. I remember when they built these condos and I also remember thinking "Hmmmm.. maybe I should buy one"..

Fast forward a couple years and I'm getting married at Chico ( 5 minutes away) - Needed a place for my fiance and his mother and I to stay and here we are! Check in was simple and even if I didn't know the area all the information you'd ever need was provided. The condo was immaculate when we checked in and even when we made messes, all the cleaning materials were in the perfectly logical places.

Shall we talk about the kitchen? Literally the best stocked rental kitchen I've ever stayed in.

Need a counter stand mixer? Done.

What about a pancake griddle? Yup.

Heating that works wonders in Montana winters when it's 20 degrees below zero? Perfect.

Ridiculous view of emigrant peak from the living room? YES.

The beds were great, the location is perfect, and I pretty much can't find fault anywhere. The ground floor bathroom was perfect for my Mother with limited mobility to come visit for dinner. Will 100% stay here again.

A welcoming retreat-really great!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We rent all over the world and have never have had such a well stocked vacation rental. It is a well thought out-customer friendly rental with lots of personal effort from Drew, the owner. He is great to work with, most helpful and very knowledgeable. This condo was very clean with a pretty view and easy to do day trips from to visit surrounding sights. Other than Yellowstone, our main planned destination, we also enjoyed Red Lodge (recommended by Drew}, a scenic and fun mountain town. The drive from Red Lodge over the mountain highway to Yellowstone was beautifully awesome. We also visited Chico Hot Springs a couple of times for swimming and dinner, so we enjoyed this resort too. Thanks Drew for a wonderful stay and for all your assistance, it was a vacation to remember! Great job!

Awesome vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was probably the best rental I have ever stayed in. It has everything you could possibly want, and then some! It was beautiful inside and very roomy! You won't find anything better for the price! The location is fantastic as well! Close to Yellowstone and Gardiner, MT. The mountain views from the Townhouse are absolutely breathtaking!! This is definitely where we will stay if we ever come back to visit Yellowstone and the surrounding areas!!

Fantastic Condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is great! My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Like is mentioned, Drew has everything you may want or need provided in the condo.- shampoo, conditioner, towels, hair dryer, extra pillows, blankets, bear spray, a fully stocked kitchen, etc. We stopped for groceries in Bozeman before making our way to Emmigrant and it couldn't have worked out better! Yellowstone park enterance is located about 30-40 minutes away from the condo., but the drive goes by fast as there is so much beautiful scenery on the way. We saw elk, antelope, deer, and buffalo on the drive to the park. Make sure to check out the sandwiches at the local sandwich shop within walking distance from the condo. My family say it was in the top three best sandwiches they've ever had! The Old Saloon and Chico hot springs are very close to the condo. and fun to spend time at too. Overall, I would recommend staying here to anyone. Thanks Drew for providing such a wonder place to stay! I hope to be back again soon!

Truly a slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

After reading all of the other reviews, its hard to say more, other than to affirm what they say. This is a wonderful place, magnificent views, great location. The home is beautiful, and had all of the amenities you could ask for. Normally, when you rent a condo, you will need to supply all of the little extras, from soap to TP, etc. We had all of this well supplied, as well as laundry soap. Drew was extremely easy to work with and provided outstanding communication. Be prepared to see wildlife right outside of the condo. We had a ten point buck in the drive as well as a doe and two fawns. It is a 30 minute drive to Yellowstone, but it is so beautiful, you forget the time. Both bedrooms are upstairs, so take that in consideration if you have issues with climbing. We try to stay in a condo wherever we go and this one is at the top of the list. I give it my strongest recommendation.
