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! So whatever your needs maybe, you’ll find it right outside your door at your finger tips! Having these amenities so close allows you to just sit back and relax! In addition, the Yellowstone River, Mill Creek, Dailey Lake and Grey Owl Public Fishing access are only a short distance away! I have compiled a document with local businesses, activities and travel arrangements, so you can pre-plan your vacation in advance! If not, bring your laptop computer and utilize the free Wi-Fi for exploring or to just keep tabs with work. Please contact me and I’ll send you an email with a complete listing of information regarding local attractions, activities and travel!

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 Emigrant

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!

                                                                Terrific townhouse, spacious, clean, comfortable and amazing location!

                                                                Leticia M.

                                                                We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! Location, Location, Location! Plus we strive to give our guests the feeling of a home away from home!

                                                                Very convenient and great location!

                                                                We had a wonderful stay in Emigrant. The townhouse was clean, had plenty of room, and included many convenient home items that you typically would not think of bringing. (Laundry detergent, garbage bags, sandwich bags, bottle opener, bear spray, etc.) Drew, was very welcoming and I would definitely recommend to others.

                                                                Drew's townhouse is wonderful! Everything was clean & orderly when we arrived.

                                                                My two sisters and I planned a "bucket list" vacation to Yellowstone & stayed in Drew's townhouse. It is beautiful & cozy & in a nice community! We decided to extend our stay by a week and Drew worked very well with us on staying the extra days! Thank you for opening your beautiful townhouse to us! I highly recommend this as a gateway to Yellowstone, Gardiner & Livingston!! We had a blast!!

                                                                Everything Exceeded Our Expectations!

                                                                SANDRA S.

                                                                This was our first time using HomeAway. The bar has been set. We stayed in 11A. It really did feel like home. This is like taking your home on vacation with you and more. The unit was "fully-furnished" with top of the line everything. Everything you can think of....griddle for pancakes, top quality pots and pans of every size, plates and glassware, even a grill if you want to cookout. The pictures don't prepare you for the "WOW" factor. The bedrooms are set-up with beautiful furnishings and comfortable beds. The bathrooms are spotless and handicapped accessible. Having the washer and dryer in the unit allowed us to travel lighter and such a convenience. There were coolers in the garage for you to use...we had bought one and left it when we left also. Please check out the unit before you buy anything. I would bet it's there.

                                                                We are not sure how they had the Mule deer and rabbits there to meet us every evening as we drove up the driveway to the unit!

                                                                The short drive to Yellowstone offered us photo opportunities of Elk, Mule deer, Whitetail deer, Antelope, Eagles and even a Black Bear! The mountain ranges are breath-taking.

                                                                The units location allowed us to even take a day trip to "The Little Big Horn".

                                                                We are already discussing our plans for next year.

                                                                This is a wonderful, beautiful place to stay. We highly recommend it!

                                                                Owner's Response:


                                                                We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Having your home with you takes a vacation to the next level.......relaxation whereupon you don't need a vacation from the vacation! That is what we have tried to provide for our guests! A place that actually brings you to a new level of nirvana! We would love to have you or your friends as guests next year! I plan on making more improvements in ammenties with the newest and most advanced items!

                                                                Thanks Drew

                                                                Thanks Drew! Sharing your home away from home was a fantastic experience for us. This Townhome has everything we needed and is perfectly situated in the Paradise Valley. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the fishing. I would describe this rental as "Turn-key". From the time we walked into the home we knew we made the correct decision. Hope to visit again next year. Thanks again.

                                                                This place is the Cat's Meow, even if like me you don't like cats. Don't hate! It's a quick drive to Yellowstone. The River is accessible across the highway. The General Store is well stocked and surprisingly affordable. Emigrant has a great restaurant right down the street, although we made use of the well equipped kitchen.

                                                                Drew even supplies bear spray. We absolutely loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

                                                                Do yourself a favor and jump in. The only thing we'd change is the pic in the front entrance because it made us miss our Jack Russell.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We are located three miles from the world famous Chico Hotsprings! For fine dining, message, live music and thermal hotsprings, it just doesn't get any better! Bring your dancing shoes!!!! Plus the blue ribbon trout water the 'Yellowstone' is just a stones throw away. Three eateries (Wildflower Bakery, 'Follow your Nose Barbeque' and the 'Old Saloon'), bank, post office and a general store is within walking distance!
