About the property

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Paradise Valley Cottage is your comfortable home away from home set amongst giant willows and pine trees with a view of the Rocky Mountains. The cabin is a stand alone building on our ranch with a very private entrance. The cabin is centrally located between Livingston and Yellowstone National Park with easy access to all that Paradise Valley has to offer. Step onto the wood deck and flagstone patio to enjoy the magnificent mountain views and barbecue your favorite meal. Walk along Eight Mile Creek to our private pond and watch the trout jump or stop on the bridge to enjoy the music of the water flowing while gazing up at Emigrant Peak.

Five miles from the cottage is Chico Hot Springs. After a day of hiking or skiing this is the place to be to sooth your tired muscles and relax. Here you can catch a meal at the grill or make reservations for a more elegant dinner in the dining room. Later, you can take in a live band and dance the night away. On the way to Chico Hot Springs there is a general store with everything you can imagine and across the street is a post office, bank, deli, bakery and the Old Saloon where you can enjoy a fantastic breakfast, burger or your favorite beverage.

The biggest attraction is just 35 miles south - Yellowstone National Park. Besides the famous Old Faithful Geyser, you will see wildlife - bison, elk, bear, big horn sheep, and if you're really lucky, wolf. The Park has so many wonderful sights that one day is never enough. If you are able, hike some of the back trails to really experience the peaceful beauty and in the winter, take a snow coach tour, snowmobile, or cross-country ski to enjoy the silence and pristine beauty.

For all the fishermen out there, Yellowstone River is easily accessed by our private site, one-half mile from the cottage. Set your drift boat in the river or wade in to catch rainbow and brown trout. Whether you are fly fishing or bait fishing, Yellowstone River will not disappoint. In the summer, if you're look for a boating experience or want to sunbath at the beach of a lake, Daily Lake is 15 minutes away and swimming, sailing, fishing and windsurfing are some of the popular activities found on this lake.

In the town of Livingston, among all the necessities (grocery store, pharmacies) you will find museums, art galleries, a farmer's market on Wednesdays throughout the summer, restaurants and boutique shops. There is also an 18-hole golf course and Sacajawea Park which hosts the annual music summer fest in July. Wintertime brings to Livingston live plays at the Blue Slipper and Firehouse, seasonal events such as the Christmas Stroll, bazaar and New Years Dance at the Depot.

About The Owner

Rodney & I (Diane) have owned our home since 1998 and have created a sanctuary that we would like to share with you. We have traveled throughout the world and have had the most enjoyable visits when we were in a home rather than a hotel. We have tried to make the cottage be a place of comfort so that you can enjoy your holiday without worry about accommodations. We share our home with our dog, Annie and our cat, Sara. We know this valley well and can help you to plan any part of your vacation!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW! What a great night! I slept like a baby, awoke to a glorious morning scene of snow capped mountains and sighed with a feeling of deep contentment. You are gracious hosts and your cottage is so cozy!

Even more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so amazing. It was our 41 st annivasary and a very special trip for our 6 yr old grandson. We are born and bred Texans but believe we fould convert quickly! We spent 1 week in Montana exploring Yellowstone and another week in Wyoming exploring the Grand Tetons and all her beauty. The 6 yr old was never even slightly bored. He loved every moment. Him and GranPa would act like there was a baby deer outside our window. I would hear the hush, hush wisperings going on and would quickly sneak a peek outside. They would quickly laugh outloud! They were looking at the "littlebaby deer" on the big flower pot. Thought they were pulling one on me every time! We loved the privacy and feeling that we were all alone. The cabin is situated so that you dont realize the owners are next door. We love, love, loved this place. Hopefully we will be back next year, if my health doesnt fail! Thank uou so much for the use of your home.

Wonderful honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Wow, I can't believe I didn't post a review 3 years ago when we stayed here for our honeymoon. I still think about this place often. When my life here in Detroit gets stressful, I think of this place and it gives me solace.

Everything about this trip was amazing. There's a reason why they call it big sky country. The owners were ultimately hospitable. So friendly and interesting. They were like the kind of people you want to be friends with. They left us champagne and orange juice for mimosas, which I thought was very thoughtful.

The dog followed us everywhere and we would wake in the morning and pet the horses.

I desperately want to go back!

Montana Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Montana was amazing. We loved being close to Yellowstone. It was wonderful to drive though Yellowstone and see all the animals and Old Faithful.

We also visited the Museum of the Rockies which is about an hour away and walked around Bozeman.

Rodney and Diane were wonderful. Their property is beautiful. Our dogs loved being able to walk around the property.

Ideal Place for Our Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful, cozy, and SAFE stay in this well-appointed and purely "Montana" cabin. We waffled some on the decision to stay on a property where the owners reside. The decision to do so became one of the best aspects of our trip. Diane and Rodney were the absolute best hosts we could have asked for. First, for those of you who would rather avoid interaction with others, let me stress that I had the distinct impression that we would have been left alone had we wished to. But a vehicular mishap (our fault, being very inexperienced driving in snow and a little slow at reading road signs, apparently) early into our visit encouraged us to meet our hosts. We got stuck on a snowdrift and knocked on Diane and Rodney's door for help. Rodney, my husband, and some helpful neighbors dug out the car while I enjoyed a cup of coffee and great conversation in Daine's warm living room. Rodney then showed us the correct route to reach the highway in the snow and carefully kept the road plowed so we could get out whenever we wanted to. Later in the week we visited Rodney's car restoration business and he kindly took time to show us around. In short, aside from staying in a precious cabin - clean, very well-appointed, beautiful, warm, classically "Montana" complete with horses and amazing views - we also got to meet some great people who helped to make us feel completely at home and well cared for. Thank you both again for a wonderful vacation!

Cozy Stay in the Valley

  • 5 of 5

We just had a lovely stay at this cabin! Very peaceful setting and roomy, clean, comfortable lodgings. Close to many trails, hot springs, about 20 minutes from town. Very convenient to many sights, including Yellowstone National Park, which unfortunately was closed due to the government shutdown during our stay, but would be easily accessible otherwise. Plenty to do here, and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sights and all Paradise Valley offers. Many thanks to our hosts and looking forward to our return to check out the park.
