Our 2016 season is soon coming to an end and we wish to thank all of our wonderful guests for their stay in our home in Pine Creek.
It is especially nice to see comments that our guests leave, including the most recent who said:
"We loved staying here! It felt like home. Y'all were very helpful and made our stay extra special. We will be back!"
We host large families, almost exclusively, that have never been to Montana, to Big Sky Country. They choose to gather here, have fun, relax, and experience this beautiful part of the world.
We thank you for considering our home for your visit to Montana in 2017, be it for a Yellowstone Park adventure, a wedding at one of the several wedding venue sites in the Paradise Valley, a reunion with family and friends, or fly fishing the magnificent Yellowstone River and the nearby world renowned spring creeks.
Our 2017 calendar is now open for June and July in 2017, and beginning to fill.
Very limited dates in August and September will be offered after the new year. If you are interested in August or September of 2017 and you are seeking specific dates please contact us and we will try to accommodate you.
We suggest you don't delay if a specific date is important, especially for you folks coming for a wedding in June or July.
We strive to provide everything you might need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. You will find a very well stocked kitchen. We have spices, french roast coffee beans and grinder, oils, paper goods, and very sharp knives to slice and dice.
Just bring food and drink. We have the most wonderful 190 feet deep well pure water that you have ever tasted.
We have two water heaters providing 120 gallons of hot water.
We have a gas grill on the lower patio.
Send us an inquiry and we will let you know if your dates are available and send you a quote for the cost of the rental.
If you wish to confirm the reservation just email us and we will send you a rental agreement and lock in your dates. You can sign the rental agreement electronically.
Our reservation system is convenient, secure, easy to use, and accepts all major credit cards.
Our family friendly 3,600sf home is situated on 10.5 acres. It is comfortable and cozy for a small gathering, yet very spacious and roomy should you be looking for a home for your big family.
We can accommodate up to 14 guests. It is nicely laid out so grownups can be upstairs and the little ones downstairs.
The house is smoke free and pet free. The access road to the house is level and paved, just a 1/2 mile off of Highway 540, East River Road, the original road to Yellowstone Park, and 11 miles south of Livingston.
Whether you choose to explore nearby Yellowstone Park, hike the nearby trail heads, fish, raft the river, or just stay home and sit on the back deck, this home provides the peaceful quiet beauty of Paradise Valley at its best.
Our home is family and kid friendly. The large pasture in front of the house has a creek and pond, fire pit, and horseshoes...
The house can sleep 12 in the four bedrooms. The main level has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining and great room. Off of the kitchen is a large deck with extraordinary vistas of the Absaroka and Gallatin Ranges and the Yellowstone River.
One bedroom on the main level has a king bed, and the other bedroom has two queen beds.
The lower level has a full daylight walkout basement, and offers a spacious family room, a full bath, and two bedrooms.
One bedroom has a queen size bed and a bunk bed. The other has a queen and a twin. The family room has a trundle bed that sleeps two.
Our fishing access on the Yellowstone River, available to our guests and members of our Home Owner's Association, is a convenient short drive away. It is accessed via a private road. There are two picnic tables and it is a wonderful place to throw in a line, or just relax and enjoy the river.
See the attached video below, as well as our photos. For launching boats from a trailer the state fishing access is a bit over a mile away just off of Pine Creek Road.
There is a lot of wildlife in the area including deer, foxes, coyotes, hawks, osprey, and eagles swooping down from the mountains to the river.
We see the occasional bear in the fall, foraging for berries, apples, and other munchies.
High-speed wireless internet service is provided. The family room offers a "smart" 48" TV, with a DVD player. Television channels available are the traditional networks, plus PBS, CW, Create TV, Amazon, Netflix and many dozens more...
There is a collection of children's toys and games. We have a high chair and a Pak-and-Play.
Paradise Valley is home to some of the world's best fly-fishing river and spring creek venues. Numerous trail heads for treks into the Gallatin Range or the Beartooth/Absaroka Wilderness are just a short distance from the home.
River rafting and horseback riding are available from a variety of vendors. (See our links.)
The Pine Creek Cafe ,just down the road, offers a great menu as well as outdoor weekend entertainment during the summer months. They also have a small store with drinks, beer and wine, some groceries, snacks, etc.
Chico Hot Springs and Resort, south of us off of East River Road, offers two hot spring pools, one warm and large enough for a vigorous workout, and one hot for soaking, a casual grill style restaurant, and a very nice fine dining restaurant. Their Sunday morning brunch is excellent.
Livingston is a charming historic western town well known for it's art galleries, and has a nice selection of fine dining establishments. Check out Anthony Bourdain's favorite 2nd Street Bistro. We had a guest who told us he had dinner there four nights out of the week he spent here. He liked it.
Bozeman is 35 miles to the west via I-90 and offers a wide variety of shopping and dining, a vibrant downtown night life, Montana State University, and the world renowned Museum of the Rockies. Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) is the closest airport.
Quite a few of our guests fly into Billings, Montana (BIL). Two hours to the east it offers more flight options, and some better pricing. Something worth checking out if you have a large group.

Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: We met and were married in Santa Cruz, California. As our family grew we migrated to the beautiful high desert country of Central Oregon. It was a wonderful experience, living in the high desert country, amid the Juniper forests, with a crisp/dry climate, and wide open spaces. After several years in Oregon we started a business designing and crafting a line of Christmas decorations. Our business grew rapidly and we moved to Southern California to be closer to wholesale markets, suppliers, and vendors. It was a formative and exciting time, selling to stores such as Nordstroms, Macy’s, Disney World, QVC, and many gift shops around the country.
Why the Owner Chose Livingston, MT, USA:
We chose this exceptional part of the world after we visited and camped in Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding area. We decided this is where we wanted to raise our family. When we made the decision to move here we placed an ad in the local Livingston paper: “Wanted: 3-4 bedroom house with acreage and a shop/barn to lease with option to buy. Five children, a well behaved dog, and a cat.” The most wonderful couple called us. We met them at the house, signed a hand written lease on a yellow pad that day, gave them a check on a bank out of state, and moved in the next day. They loved our kids, and dog, and had five kids of their own! What sealed the deal was our children picking a bouquet of wild flowers and presenting it to the owners of the house. This is what we love about Montana. Real people. Another benefit was sending our four daughters to Pine Creek School, a two room schoolhouse just down the road, and the subject of a Norman Rockwell/Life Magazine painting many years ago.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we moved here in 1987 we loved the spacious 3600 square feet and four bedrooms which was perfect for our family of seven. But, the most important thing was the great shop/barn where we established our workshop and Susan’s design studio. It was unfinished, rather a rough space, and we had to refurbish it to our specs. But, it was perfect! What we really appreciated was the natural beauty, the mountains, the river, the Big Sky sunsets, the privacy, the seclusion, the opportunity to be away from the crowd, but, still, not too far, with Livingston about 10 miles away. A fax machine, (which weighed about 15 pounds, cost $400, and used that awful thermal paper), and UPS pickup service, was all we needed in those days before the internet. We are centrally located in the Paradise Valley, close to Livingston and its fine restaurants and art galleries. The Paradise Valley is well renowned for its spring creek fishing venues, the nearby Pine Creek Lodge and Restaurant which has live music on Saturday nights, Chico Hot Springs and its exceptional fine dining, and numerous hiking trail heads and Yellowstone River fishing accesses. Or, if you just want to kick back, relax, and do not a whole lot of tourist stuff, just come to our place and enjoy the view. We are kindred spirits if such is your preference…
