BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This spacious and open home features exposed timbers, lofted ceilings, beautiful finish touches and some truly amazing mountain views.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS: The home has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. The main part of the house is all on the second level. A flight of stairs takes you up to the living area - where you will find the master bedroom with a king size bed. Attached is a beautifully tiled bathroom with a huge double shower. This bathroom is the only bathroom on this level, so it is also accessed off the living room. The other two bedrooms are on the main level. One bedroom has a king size bed and an attached bathroom with a sauna and the bunk room has one queen futon and a single futon. There is also a half bath on this level of the home.
KITCHEN: This complete kitchen has everything you will need to prepare any meals you desire during your visit. It is a long kitchen area, separated from the living area by a tall counter with a few barstools - for hanging out to chat with the cook! Off to the side is a dining table that seats four. Patio doors off the dining area lead out to a beautiful deck area for barbecues, or just relaxing and taking in the views.
LIVING ROOM: The living room has a cozy leather sofa for snuggling up in front of the woodstove on chilly evenings. The home has some books and games for entertainment, plus there is a television with a DVD for watching movies. The home does not have television reception, but there are movie rental stores nearby if you need a movie fix or you can stream from the internet.
SETTING, ACREAGE, VIEWS: The cabin is located on 20 acres in the Paradise Valley, between the small towns of Emigrant and Pray. Views are of the rugged Absaroka Mountains, and Emigrant Peak - which is just above the main attraction in this part of the valley, Chico Hot Springs.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Chico Hot Springs, or "Chico" as the name is shortened by locals, is open to the public, and is a must-do while you are here. Go for some great food, a relaxing soak in the hot springs, or some fun local music and a great dancing scene. Besides Chico, there is fishing on the Yellowstone River just a few minutes away, hiking and mountain biking on nearby trails, horseback riding, golf, skiing, tours of Yellowstone National Park, and everything that the towns of Livingston, Bozeman and Gardiner have to offer.
CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: It's about 4 miles to the town of Emigrant, which has a small general store, saloon, cafe, post office, and ice cream store. Livingston and Gardiner are both 20-30 minutes from the home. Gallatin Field Airport in Bozeman is the closest, and is about one hour away.
The views in Montana were breathe taking and the weather couldn't have been any more perfect. The home we stayed in, Chico Peak, was very unique and warm. Every window you looked out of had a view of snow covered mountains. I enjoyed sitting on the window bench reading and watching my kids explore outside while my husband was cooking on the grill. At night we would lay outside and watch the stars. My sons were amazed with how many there were. Then we would head in and warm up on the sauna. It was a vacation that my family will never forget. I would highly recommend this house and I hope that we get a chance to make it back there.
Our family of 5 called Chico Peak home for 6 nights. It was very difficult to leave this peaceful retreat. After long days in Yellowstone, we were always happy to return to our house under the mountain. The view was breathtaking. I could have stayed in the home without any other adventures and been completely content. In addition to the mountain, we watched elk and enjoyed bird watching from the back patio. The home is situated on a lot of property so you will not have another rental or another home close to you. It is extremely private (which we loved). We journeyed almost everyday to the park which was about a 40 minute drive of even more beautiful scenery. The drive never got old as we enjoyed looking for wildlife and watching the Yellowstone River wind through the hills. This rental is everything I would expect and hope for with a family vacation. I would recommend to the rental management company adding general guidelines for the sauna. As they replied promptly to all our questions and it is easy to turn on, we didn't know how much water to add to get it started or what temperature is best to start with. We tweaked the temperature as we learned, but without general guidelines it was trial and error at first. The sauna was amazing after long hikes and my husband called it "the miracle cure." There is a great general store right down the road in Emigrant which we used everyday to stock the cooler. My husband also enjoyed fishing close to home and the angler store in Emigrant was really cool. We would recommend this property to all our family and friends and plan to do so as some plan to visit next year after hearing about our stay.
The house was amazing! It is very close to Gardiner and the entrance to Yellowstone Park. The property was beautiful with awesome views. We could see Chico Hot Springs from our bedroom window, which was really pretty at night. The house had everything we needed and more! We had an amazing time and look forward to booking with Mountain Home in the future. The girls were wonderful to work it and helped us so much! The only problem we had was with the water heater the last night. We had a problem keeping it lit and were unable to take showers or wash dishes for about 3 hours, but the handyman called immediately and was very helpful.
My family LOVED Chico Peak! Great views from every window and everything we needed to unwind after days of hiking in Yellowstone and the surrounding area. We would love to come back some day!
