About Eleanor Harvey

My parents and I moved to MT from GA in 1997 after my youngest of three sons left home for college. We built O'Carroll's B&B (where I now reside) that year and then this guest house in 2003. As a transplanted southerner, I still get a thrill from the mountain views, the beautiful Yellowstone River, the wildlife, the rainbows, the glorious summers with low humidity; and yes, even the cold winter wonderland days. Now it is just I and my two standard poodles, Joie and Jacques, who operate the B&B and host the guest house and the cabin.

Eleanor Harvey purchased this house in 2003

Why Eleanor Harvey chose Livingston

Our guest house is literally in the heart of Paradise Valley only 35 miles north of YNP's north gate. We are only 7 miles from Chico Resort with it's famous hot springs pool and fine dining. Fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, white water rafting and quiet river floats, scenic airplane flights, rodeos, wildlife observation, and bird watching just begin the list of activities to be enjoyed.

Great overall experience.

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful with easy room for six, kitchen was well appointed, mattresses were comfortable, view of mountains was wonderful, and despite road right out front, noise was negligible. We watched sun rise and moon rise over mountains every morning and evening. We had a Bald Eagle as a neighbor everyday. Short, beautiful 30 minute drive to Yellowstone NP NW entrance. Great convenience store 4 miles south with Chico community 5 minutes north. Owner was wonderful and accomodating. There was no AC, but temperatures were comfortable the hottest week of the year. There is a swamp cooler available, but we did not use it. This was the first leg of a dream vacation and our teenagers are totally spoiled about what to expect from now on.

The cabin with everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great cabin, well furnished, super clean and stocked with everything you could possibly need during your stay.

Our group consisted of two couples and our 15 year old grandson and we had more than enough room for everyone.

Eleanor, our host , was very accommodating and only a phone call away, we look forward to returning to this great place.

Thanks Eleanor, what a great place!!!

Phenomenal view, great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed for staying 3 nights - we wish we could have stayed longer. Eleanor is a great host and such a sweet lady! She suggested the RV park down the road where we found some souvenirs and would have stayed for the campfire but were too tired after a long day. So much to do in the area - 30 minutes from Yellowstone, close to Chico Hot Springs and grocery shopping in Livingston. The views were UNBELIEVABLE - spent lots of time on the porch - one night watching the storm/lightning and the next night looking at ALL the stars - now I know why Montana is called Big Sky Country. Great place - would recommend to anyone!
