Overview

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!

Gorgeous views, very quiet

  • 5 of 5

The views are amazing right from the porch. Lots of great hiking right here in the area and we spotted quite a few wild animals within a handful of miles. Wildflour right down the road has incredible breakfast and the Old Saloon is a lot of fun!

What a Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband has always wanted to go to Montana, so for his birthday we went. This place is absolutely a slice of Paradise.

We enjoyed our time there so much and meeting the owners. Annie and Sara are wonderful pets. Annie likes to play and Sara likes to rub up against your feet.

We will be back at some point. Truly a wonderful vacation.......

Perfect escape

  • 4 of 5

I really liked this place, and the more that time passes, the more I realize how much I enjoyed staying here. While the weather did its best to ruin my stay, the hostess, property, and peace I found here made it easy to shrug off the clouds and rain. Although the mattress was somewhat tired (minus 1 star), it was overall a comfortable place. There was a helpful book with things to do in the area, and enough kitchen supplies to make a memorable meal in the mountains of Montana. I originally found this rental at the intersection of budget and location, but if I'm in the area again I will seek to stay here without any regard for either. It is truly a peaceful slice of paradise!

Beautiful and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

It's a very quiet and lovely cottage that's off the highway. The owners are welcoming and sweet. It felt like home and it's very spacious for a studio. There's useful books, recommendations, maps for surrounding areas and Yellowstone. It does get chilly at night so definitely wear or use something warm and the night sky breath taking. The views of the mountains are exquisite, the sun rise is gorgeous and I couldn't have possibly asked for a better location! :) I recommend this place for people who are traveling with a party of 2 or 3.

Remote and quiet location, lovely Absaroka Mountain Range view.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is cozy and comfy, with a nice covered patio for eating meals and enjoying mountain views. The unit is built onto the owners' garage, so you'll be right near their house. Privacy still not an issue other than the possibility of an early wake up from their sweet dog barking a bit. Easy drive to Chico Hot Springs, Livingston, and Yellowstone, but be prepared for plenty of driving!

Good Property but Home Away has problems

  • 4 of 5

The cottage and owners were very nice. Photos were a little over complimentary. Unfortunately Home away had no address listed. The Home Away location map was off by a few miles and no arrival package was received with directions. When I tried to download the Home Away APP the site is always'unavailable.' All said I would stay there again. Good location, quiet. Nicely appointed. The problem is mainly with Home Away.
