About Susan Kirkland

We are Johnny and Susan Kirkland, we live in New York, on Long Island's North Shore, most of the year, but all of our 4 children have moved out west and made it their home. So, we thought we should follow suit, we just aren't quite ready to leave New York full time yet. We bought our house and stay there several times per year, so you can be sure that all of the creature comforts are available to you. Susan is a retired Special Education Teacher, who still substitute teaches on a regular basis and Johnny is a Physicist and software developer. Since our children have gone, we've picked up a new hobby of raising guide dogs. We have successfully raised Josh, who is a working guide dog, and we have raised London, who is now a Vet Service Dog for a disabled Vietnam veteran, and we have Gretha, a breeder dog for the GDF, as well as Dave, Sushi and North. North is yellow and the other three are black labs. This is where our home's name comes from, The Black Dog Hideaway is a tribute to our love for our guide dogs and the important work they do.

During your visit you may see our son John who takes care of the Black Dog Hideaway and lives in the private basement apartment with a separate entrance, or when you are making a reservation you'll talk to Sue who manages the home and bookings.

Please feel free to contact us anytime, we'd love to hear from you!

Susan Kirkland purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan Kirkland chose Yellowstone Country

We fell in love with this house the moment we stepped inside, and we know that you will too! There are two adorable porch swings on the front porch, and the subtle character is amazing. Downstairs, you'll notice the original woodwork, and original built in cabinets from days gone by. Upstairs was updated with comfort in mind. This house has the best of both worlds, old world history and modern updates and comforts. Plus, you can't beat the location, and proximity to downtown Bozeman!

What makes this house unique

Please enjoy the jetted tub in the master bath. Also for your comfort we have installed baseboard heaters under each sink to warm you from the bottom up.

In the master bedroom you will find a built -in wall heater for you additional comfort. For your comfort on those very hot summer days we have installed a Mr. Slim air conditioner in the master bedroom.

The stereo is located in the master bedroom cherry wood closet, and can be heard throughout the second level on built -in speakers.

In the living room, we have installed a 55 inch 3DTV with 3D glasses for 6. Original hardwood floors have been enhanced with walnut ribbon knots and refinished to their natural beauty. With the push of a button, you can enjoy our gas fireplace and enjoy a cozy relaxing atmosphere with family and friends.

The kitchen has granite counter tops, double oven, pot filler over 5 burner gas stove, ice maker on the refrigerator door, double sink, and trash compactor.

The walk to town is easy, and close, as is Cooper Park at only two blocks away. We have a covered backyard deck with outdoor table and chairs that seat 6 for added summer entertaining. A Weber grill is also on the paver patio. Our back yard is professionally landscaped with quaint limestone walk ways, gardens, and a paver patio in keeping with our 1912 Craftsman style home. Fully fenced in yard.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I traveled to Bozeman, MT for a fishing and hiking trip. We stayed in this beautifully restored home located just a couple of blocks from historic downtown, in a quiet neighborhood. It could not have been more comfortable! A fully equipped and modern kitchen is enhanced with a covered deck and outdoor dining furnishings surrounded by a quaint yard with well-maintained garden beds and privacy fencing. The master suite is fabulous, with double sinks, whirlpool tub and large open shower area. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had a wonderful stay. It's a wonderful area with a ton of things to do and choose from!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of my home. I try to keep my home and property to the highest standards for my guests enjoyment and comfort. I am so glad you enjoyed all the amenities my house has to offer. Being only two blocks from Main Street is a definite plus! The town is walkable and once you are at my house you can leave your car in the driveway and walk to all the restaurants, entertainment and shopping. I am looking forward to hopefully having you and your family come back in the future, Sue & Johnny

We had a great time. Second time we have rented the property, that should tell you we liked it. It is a great fit for us, clean, well-located, and well-equipped. We would readily rent it again.

Excellent place to stay in Bozeman

  • 5 of 5

The Black Dog Hideaway is an outstanding property to rent in Bozeman. Sue is a very attentive owner and addressed the one very small issue we had immediately. The kitchen is very well stocked with all needed utensils, pot, pans, coffee maker, etc. The house is nicely maintained and very comfortable. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The hidden gem is the coverage back porch, which is a great place to enjoy drinks and appetizers. The Black Dog is also an easy walk to downtown and it's nightlife. The university is very close by also. I would recommend the Black Dog to anyone visiting Bozeman.
