About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Full Size Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Wonderfully exclusive large studio apartment above detached garage.

Only 4 blocks from Bozeman's downtown mainstreet. You will be a 5 minute walk to the areas top restaurants, shopping/galleries, and bars. Relax in our spa-like soaker tub after an exhilarating Montana day or enjoy cooking with our new gas stove in our fully stocked kitchen. During the winter months you can cozy up to the gas fireplace while looking at the stars through the skylight above or spend the summer months on your own private fenced-in patio. We also have a well stocked library downstairs where you can read stories about Bozeman or wildflowers of the Rocky Mountains. There is also an assortment of children's books for the young visitors! The apartment is perfect for two people with it's one bedroom but if you have one or two more it is no problem. We just added a brand new full size bed downstairs where others can fall fast asleep in the privacy of their own space.

The apartment is stocked with anything you will possibly need from bathroom to kitchen. We even welcome each guest with bottled water, 1# bag of delicious coffee (single serving coffee packages for 1-3 night stays), microwave popcorn, nuts, and a bowl of chocolates!

If you want to bike around town we also supply a couple town bikes for your enjoyment. There is also a stackable washer and dryer for your convenience.

About Lyn Petersen

I moved to Bozeman in 1991 and became engrossed with the wonderful community, people, the mountains, flyfishing, hiking and hunting. I purchased our house in 1998 and built the garage apartment in 2004. The apartment was my 'dream house' with my long sought after bath tub. A cute boy from work, Pete (Great Falls, MT native), helped me move into the apartment and 3 years later we were married! We moved back into the main house for extra space to fit our growing family. Now we have two beautiful daughters, Dawson and Holden. Pete is a full time fishing guide in the summer while I substitute teach and work two nights a week at the Bozeman Brewery pouring the best local beer in town!

Why Lyn Petersen chose Yellowstone Country

We both love Montana and thought it would be fun to give people a wonderful place to stay while playing in the Big Sky Country. We previously rented the apartment to one couple for four years but decided to turn it into a vacation rental during the winter of 2012 to serve other families that want to enjoy the Gallatin Valley.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is a very quiet, relaxing place to stay. With the wonderful tub and warming gas fireplace it'll be hard to ever leave! Our library features many Montana books about climbing, fishing and hunting along with featured authors such as Ivan Doig and David James Duncan. The outdoor patio is a wonderful place to sit and drink your morning tea or coffee while taking in the warmth of the sun. If you would like to learn how to flyfish or go on a guided trip we can do that too!

Comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean and well thought out apartment. Everything you need away from home. Comfortable, clean, cozy and close to downtown Bozeman. Quiet and private, truly felt like home. Loved the kitchen and bathroom (lovely soaker tub). Would return here in a heartbeat.

Great Apartment Close to Main Street Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay--and we'll be back. The apartment is well-equipped and spotless. The beds are comfortable, and the kitchen functional. My two-year old loved the toys. The location (a 5 minute walk to Main Street) is convenient. Lyn was an excellent host. If you are headed to Bozeman and want a place from which to explore downtown, I couldn't think of a better choice.

cute, cozy, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lyn's property for three nights during our friend's wedding. It was a perfect home base: centrally located, private, and very well-appointed (coffee! bikes!).

For those not from the area, she has many ideas and recommendations for things to do in town, as well as maps, stashed around the apartment.

We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the property.

I think my favorite touch was the awesome tub/shower combo. 👍

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lynn's apartment is cozy, extremely clean, and with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. Most of all, Lynn and Peter are extremely caring hosts and we felt they would do anything for us to make us feel welcome. We will stay there again when we come see our daughter at Montana State University.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, clean and well maintained, full kitchen with good counter space, good selection of pots and pans. Very close to restaurants and night spots on Main St. When the weather was extremely hot during the day, the apartment got warm but cooled down nicely at night. Lyn was very nice and helpful. We've stayed there twice and will again!
