About the property

Luxury 3 bedroom Bozeman home on 20 acres with 360° mountain views!

The Roost @ Wild Mountain Ranch in Bozeman, Montana sits on 20 private acres. We are surrounded by an additional 959 acres of conservation land in the Gallatin Valley land trust. The best of both worlds with abundant wildlife, privacy & relaxation, yet only 4 miles to shopping and restaurants!

The Roost is our beautiful 1800 sq ft home with 3 bedrooms. It offers two levels to spread out & relax and sleeps 6 adults in beds. The upstairs loft has a large open floor plan with exceptional mountain views, plasma TV with DVD, Free WIFI, Direct TV cable, a comfortable sectional, bar table with four chairs and two chaise lounge sofas to relax on together. Our cell phone signal is very strong here.

Extensive custom tile work in the kitchen and bathroom, new stainless steel appliances and a full size washer & dryer make your stay as comfortable as possible. The Roost offers spectacular mountain views on 20 private acres to enjoy the peace & quiet. Gas grill with comfortable chairs on the porch, a log swing in the yard and a large picnic table to make your stay even more enjoyable. The Roost is such a cozy retreat, perfect for families and couples.

Our home is professionally cleaned between each family that stays with us. We have new duvet bedding that is washed and changed between each group that stays with us. We work hard to keep everything very clean and in new condition for all of our guests. We have very high standards of cleanliness, so expect the best! There is a new pack n play for an infant/toddler to sleep in and a new highchair.

The Roost offers a home away from home with country charm, yet we are only four miles to major shopping and restaurants in Bozeman. Peaceful yet convenient to everything you could ever want to do or see, best location ever!

We also have our larger 7 bedroom home, Wild Mountain Ranch, VRBO #622593 available for rent on this same property for $595-$795/night. Rent our two homes together or seperately!

About Edin & Melody Wells-Minthorn

We purchased our property here in Bozeman, Montana in October 2012. We are originally from Iowa City, Iowa.

Edin & Melody Wells-Minthorn purchased this house in 2012

Why Edin & Melody Wells-Minthorn chose Yellowstone Country

When we first looked at this property it had been vacant for 15 years, everything outside and inside the homes and barn were from 1987 and everything was BLUE..... Blue carpet, blue exteriors, blue countertops, blue and pink flower wallpaper, it was a blue nightmare. My husband is a carpenter, so we felt we couldn't pass up these breathtaking Bridger Mountain views! We decided to buy it and then we spent the next two years gutting both homes out and doing a complete remodel. The end result is just fabulous!

What makes this house unique

One of the things we appreciate most about our ranch (other than the breathtaking mountain views) is the peaceful country feel, yet so close to town! Being only 4 miles from major shopping, activities and restaurants makes this the perfect spot!

The owners has done a great job in making "The Roost" a very comfortable 3 bedroom home. Very well equipped, spotless, very comfortable bedding etc. You will want for nothing.

We stayed three week in Jan/17 no problem with access, the road was plowed several time.

Will stay again for sure

The Roost

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place. I would of given it 5 stars if it had an upstairs bathroom. Other then that we have no complaints only good memories to add to our Christmas weekend spent at the Roost. I have never seen so many Rooster's even had playing cards with them on it :) This was a great hit with my daughter that just started raising chickens this summer. Thank you for allowing us to stay here!

The Bozeman Roost House

  • 5 of 5

The Roodt was the perfect place to stay while enjoying Bozeman and the outlying areas. The house was comfortable, beds were perfect, and a well equipped kitchen for cooking.

The views of the mountains and open fields was absolutely stunning!

This home is great for a family or a romantic getaway.

Sit on the porch or the bench swing and listen to the silence.....
