About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sofa-Bed: Sleeps 6 + 2 kids in a sofa-bed
Yellowstone Ntl Park and Chico Hot Springs are a straight 55 mn. drive on U.S. 89 and the Yellowstone River is a few miles away from the house, flowing down from gorgeous Paradise Valley.
Since a one-day visit to the Park is ample enough to see everything, you're lucky to be 4 miles from downtown Livingston with its timeless Western feel and look, for your vacation.
The closest fly-fishing spot is 4 miles from the house on famed Yellowstone River. Just 2 miles away is an Albertson's supermarket.
The most extraordinary features of 'Whispering Acres' are the magical silence of its surroundings, the millions of stars dotting Montana's Big Sky and the wonderful, happy, calm, patient and engaging local residents.
This home has a state-of-the-art central A/C system and is extraordinary for being in a remote area, yet with close-by urban conveniences.
Access is simple. Interstate I-90 is easily accessible from the house and you are 28 miles from Bozeman Gallatin Field's (BZN) national airport, or a two hour drive from Billings (BIL) airport.
'Whispering Acres' amenities: Upstairs in the house, is a vast living room with huge double-pane windows allowing spectacular views from the 'Absaroka Mountains' to the 'Crazy Mountains'. There is opulent, comfortable western-style leather seating and a 60” flat screen TV, a DVD player, hi-speed wifi throughout the house and a vast collection of DVDs.
Off the living room is a bedroom with a king size bed and access to a full bathroom through a barn-style door.
On the opposite side are the dining area and kitchen. Access to and from the 2-car garage with remote-controlled electric doors is through a living room door.
A stairway by the front door leads downstairs where a queen size sofa bed sits in the den and 2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed (one has a genuine Tempur-Pedic bed) allow for more sleeping. Each has its own private bathroom. The master bath has an oversized glass enclosed shower.
A laundry room with brand new large capacity washer and dryer adds to the comfort of your vacation. A Wii game system is all setup and can keep the kids occupied. A game table, cards, books for all ages are all there. There is another flat screen TVs in the den. Hundreds of DVDs are supplied.
Cooking at 'Whispering Acres': The kitchen is open to the breakfast area and great room, and has a wonderful view out all windows. A door opens to the large deck. We have fully stocked the kitchen with place settings, flatware, glasses, mugs, stemware, all cooking utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, and all kitchen 'tools.' Of course, there is also a dishwasher, refrigerator-freezer, island stove-top, double oven and broiler, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, blender, and waffle iron, and on and on...

The home - 'Whispering Acres' - is located on its own 20 acres and has a duck pond. (The map is approximate! The house is a bit further south at a dead end road.) It is very quiet and private, yet only a couple miles from an Albertson's supermarket, 4 miles from Downtown Livingston, and 25 miles from larger Bozeman. It's also 4 miles from the nearest fly-fishing spot, right on the Yellowstone River. So you get the best of both worlds!

Other Activities: Wildlife watching, river rafting, canoeing, horseback riding, camping, dude ranching, fly fishing, hunting, bird watching, hiking, walking, biking and mountain biking, snow shoeing, skiing, stargazing, shopping! Your days can be jammed-packed full of activities yet some prefer staying at the house, reading and staring at the stunning views to recharge their soul...
Golf: There is a golf course in Livingston at the Livingston Golf & Country Club.
18 holes over 3,128 yards with a par of 36.
Ski: Bridger Bowl, Montana, is the gem of the Northern Rockies. Located only 45 minutes from the house, this outstanding ski area is well known for offering some of the most exciting ski, snowboard and telemark experiences that you will find, anywhere. This is not your typical Montana ski resort. Bridger Bowl is a nonprofit community ski area offering a great ski experience at an affordable price. Close-by Bozeman is home to Montana State University and is a young active community located only 25 miles from house.
Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: Retired Graphic Designer, living in a rural setting to decompress. Montana is ideal for that and I take advantage of all the fantastic outdoor activities this state has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Wineglass (Livingston, MT, USA):
Montana is truly Big Sky country. It has fresh air, is quiet, unhurried, spacious, with mountains that ground you; millions of stars that invite you to reflect. There are summer and winter outdoor activities if so inclined. A chance to catch up on reading. It also has challenging and engaging people. Always nice, kind-hearted and helpful. It's the way life was meant to be.
