About the property

2 Bedroom Sleeps 4 Wonderful Eclectic Home on One Acre Lot W/Hot Tub and Tipis

Rent a house in the Heart of the Rocky Mountains. This Cozy Gallatin Gateway House is centrally located between The Big Sky Ski Resort and Bridger Bowl Ski Resort. (45 min drive either way). Take a short easy 15 minuet drive to Beautiful Bozeman. An easy 2 min walk, a mere block from the Historic Old Faithful Inn, aka-Stacy's in Gallatin Gateway. This Legendary Steak House and Cowboy bar. There are three other restaurant/bars within 5 to 10 min. I can supply more info later.

The house has two upstairs bedrooms which have very comfortable queen beds with down comforters. (The second upstairs bedroom is being converted and pictures are on the way. This bedroom features French doors that open to the back deck, which leads to the hot tub). There is a third bedroom downstairs, where the washer and dryer are located, but be aware, there is only one bathroom, thats why I only advertise two bedrooms.

The Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly want.

The art deco bathroom is small yet a pleasure to tub or shower in.

There is a wonderful Sunken HOTTUB off of deck.

A cozy, warm comfortable House with large screen TV, Netflix, &, WiFi.

This property is not a party venue!!

About Gwen Allen

I grew up in Bozeman Mt. Kindergarten through collage, I have also lived in Kallispell Mt., birthplace of my oldest daughter. I spent 4 glorious years in Paradise Valley Mt. and also resided in Castle Rock Colorado where my other two children were born.

I have been in the antique business for the last 15 years and have now had the opportunity to head south for the winter. I have family nearby who will be taking care of my property.

Gwen Allen purchased this house in 2006

Why Gwen Allen chose Yellowstone Country

I moved to Gallatin Gateway because I just wanted to live a less hectic life, and living just out side of the Bozeman donut has provided me with a quiet country living yet close to city life. The property is located on an acre of land so I have plenty of space.

I bought the house in 2006 and did an almost complete remodel, I was able to incorporate my sense of style and design, and many elements of antiques. The stove is true vintage 1950, and works great.

What makes this house unique

I love the space and freedom this area allows. I have a tipi in the yard, horses next door and the night time sky and soaking in the hot tub is wonderful entertainment. You can even hear the Gallatin River from my house which is just yards away.

A short walk will take you to the river, to great food and entertainment, yet the property nestled in and quite private.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Angie and her family were wonderful guests and treated my house with great respect! I would host them again anytime!! They left the house as nice as they found it!

Gallatin Gateway is a quick 20 min. drive from the airport. 15 min drive from Bozeman. The small town of Salesville is just off of HWY 191 was renamed Gallatin Gateway simply because it was the Milwaukee Railroad's last stop before the Yellowstone National Parks West Entrance. (now 1 1/2 hour drive).

Gallatin Gateway is a small, quaint town and home to Stacys, Old Faithful Inn, a famous old west, Bar/restaurant, established in the 1930s, and just one block away. Stacys has a band every weekend, and the food is wonderful, best burger I have ever had, and I have tried many.

The property you will be staying at is nestled between two amazing ski resorts, Big Sky Resort, & Bridger Bowl, each a 45 min drive. Both areas have snow shoeing, sledding, cross country skiing, ice skating, snowmobiling, all the wonderful winter activity's one comes to the mountains for.

Just down the road 15 min. is Bozeman which hosts all Mountain living amenities. Bozeman is home to the Museum of the Rockies, movie theaters, occasional live theater, fitness facilities, shopping, antiquing...and so much more.

Many a fisherman flock to this area because the Fly Fishing, is epic here, with the Gallatin River, Madison, Jefferson, Missouri, Yellowstone, Big Hole Rivers within close proximity.

This is a wonderful spot just off the beaten path, but one you will be very comfortable at.

Breath taking Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! As soon as you walk in the door, you are immediately stunned by the incredible collection of antiques and art work. Gwen has set this property up to be the perfect oasis after a long day hiking mountains and living Big Sky adventures. There is a peace about every room, and every day I saw something new and interesting in the house. The location is absolutely perfect for all the great local hikes, as well as bouncing over to Bozeman or sliding down to Big Sky. My family fell in love, we are DEFINITELY booking this place again and again. I can't say enough good things. Beautiful, peaceful, and incredible!

Very cute, cozy house in a great little community.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and all the work Gwen has put into it. She was very accommodating and set up a bed in the tipi for us. Perfect place for a family but not for two couples due to a lack of privacy. There are two doorways leading into one of the two bedrooms (I wouldn't count the bed downstairs as a sleeping space because it's in an unfinished basement) and one doorway has a porch door with a screen that you can see through. The other doorway has no door, so it's impossible to have any privacy in that room. The other bedroom and the rest of the house, along with the hot tub, is excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! And yes it is true that only one bedroom has a door. If couples want to get really randy, the house might not be your best Choice .....I also do not advertise the bedroom in the basement, however people have used that space along with the tipi. The house is unique with options...Thank you!!

Beautiful, funky place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Cool house in a cool location. Lot's of room to spread out and relax. We'd like to come back in the summer to enjoy more of the outside. The nice deck made it easy to shovel a path in the snow to the hot tub. Some doors on the bedroom would be an improvement. Thanks!

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house. It had tons of room and charm! The hot tub was fabulous and the town was great. Close to Big Sky and Bridger Bowl. Stacy's Old Faithful was a great place to eat!

Wonderful eclectic home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay- the amount of treasures and unique art in the home kept us busy for hours checking it all out. We stayed in the fall, and the hot tub was a perfect way to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets in the evening. Gwen was also so easy to work with and accommodating! Highly recommend this fun and inviting house!

Unique Property - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with a VRBO property and I was somewhat anxious about the stay. After booking I did e-mail Gwen several questions about the stay and each time she answered promptly and was a tremendous help. Upon arrival, we were very pleased with the property and after a long day of driving the hot tub was wonderful. The house is unique and even after three days I was still finding new things around the house of interest. There was plenty of bedding and towels and the kitchen was more than adequately stocked. We did utilize the hot tub and deck every evening and had family over for a BBQ and played lawn game. The house gave us the opportunity to relax and enjoy our down time much more than any hotel. Though it was about 15 miles away from Bozeman, this was never an issue for us as we were going between locations of Bozeman and Big Sky. This property seems to have all you would need and more and I would very highly recommend a stay here if in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the very nice review. I really enjoy sharing my property, it's really a wonderful getaway and I'm pleased you enjoyed the space. I also try and keep essentials in the kitchen for I find its hard to bring everything one needs. Thank you again and happy trails.
