The Red House is a lovely Victorian located in the residential west side of Livingston. Built in the early 1900’s, the Red House has been fully renovated and tastefully furnished to provide you with an elegant and cozy vacation home. Its convenient location provides something for everyone. It is four blocks from Sacajawea Park & the beautiful, wild Yellowstone River. A ten minute stroll takes you to Livingston’s vibrant downtown where you can enjoy restaurants, bars and shopping. Yellowstone National Park is but an hour away and Bridger Bowl is a 50 minute drive.

You will find yourself close to so many activities, such as hiking, fishing, skiing, biking, floating and soaking, that it may be hard to decide what to do each day! We love Livingston and we feel you will too! Come stay here, enjoy our small town hospitality and let your worries and stress melt away.

If we can do anything to make your stay more special (anniversary, birthday, wedding, graduation, or family reunion celebrations), don’t hesitate to give us a shout and we will make arrangement for you or hook you up with the right information.

BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS: The main floor has a bedroom with its own full bath, queen bed, sitting chair, night table & lots of closet space. There are two bedrooms upstairs. One is the master bedroom with a queen sleigh bed, connected bathroom (shower only) and a separate walk-in dressing room. In the master sitting area, there’s a TV and an adjustable sofa which can convert into additional sleeping.The other upstairs bedroom is tastefully furnished with a double bed, a large 3 drawers night table, antique small side table, comfy chair, small cabinet & closet. Additional sleeping space can be found in the living room on the leather queen sleeper sofa. There is an additional half bath on the main level. Sheets are high thread count with high quality brand name pillow-top mattresses to ensure your comfort.

KITCHEN AND DINING: The kitchen is completely new with a full selection of cookware and tableware. There is a butler’s pantry/wet bar right off the kitchen for your entertaining convenience. The dining table seats 6 comfortably with room for two additional side chairs for a larger crowd. An antique sideboard close by houses linen and additional serving ware. There is a breakfast nook in the kitchen where you can share your morning coffee.

LIVING ROOM: The living area has a luxurious Italian leather sleeper sofa, leather chair, fabric slipper chair and a chaise lounge situated around a large leather ottoman which can serve as additional seating when needed. The dining area is open to the living area allowing some to linger around the table after dinner while others ease into the living room to relax. There are large windows in both areas that flood the rooms with a warm glow in the evenings.

OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT: The Red House has a covered front porch with comfy seating to relax and watch small town life drift by. For more privacy, enjoy outdoor relaxing and dining in the backyard under the large maple tree. Kick back and chill or show off your outdoor cooking skills on the large gas grill. There is plenty of room for parties of twelve or more.

INTERNET: Full Internet capability.

AIR CONDITIONING: No central air nor window AC, but as with most mountain homes, we open all windows once the sun goes down and close them by 9AM to keep in the cool mountain air. The house stays comfortable throughout the day if you follow this guideline. We also provide fan for each bedroom and living room.

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Recreational opportunities are just minutes away with an extensive trail network for hiking, horseback riding, biking and cross country skiing. The town of Livingston has a good selection of fine and casual dining and an abundance of art galleries and unique shops. The Livingston Roundup Rodeo and parade, Summerfest and monthly downtown art walks are favorites with both locals and visitors. Yellowstone National Park is just an hour away and our well loved Paradise Valley is reachable within 15 minutes. There's so much to do that you may never want to leave!

Some of the art displayed on our walls is by Parks Reece (a friend and a nationally known artist) and other local artists. Chau is also a jewelry & metal smithing artist. Chau's cool creations can be found along with Parks' works at galleries in downtown Livingston (B-Hive, Frame Garden, Parks Reece gallery & Livingston Center for Art & Culture). You will usually meet Parks at our town summer art walks!

About Chau Nguyen

Chau (like Jo but with ‘ch’ sound) Nguyen and her family moved to Montana in 1996 looking for a slower pace and a higher quality lifestyle. They lived in the Shields Valley area for the first 6 years but later moved to Livingston to be closer to the town activities and more involved with the community.

When the children were little, Chau was an at home mom and a potter. Once her kids started school Chau was able to have more time teaching art classes at the non profit Livingston Center for Art and Culture (LCAC) and resumed her career as a business analyst at a local online printing company, PrintingForLess. In 2013, Chau semi retired from the corporate world to manage her Red House rental and to be a full time jewelry artist. Chau's hobbies are traveling, cooking with friends and reading.

Nowadays, Chau enjoys taking care of the Red House, provides enjoyment for her guests and spending more time honing her skills in metal smithing and enameling for her jewelry. Chau loves traveling and cooking with her friends. If you have questions about Livingston, Montana and/or your stay here, Chau would be happy to speak to you.

Chau Nguyen purchased this house in 2005

Why Chau Nguyen chose Livingston

We purchased the Red House as an investment rental and were leasing it on a yearly term. We love old homes with their unique character & have put lots of time, work & updates to the home. Recently, we decided to offer it as a short term vacation rental so we can share one of “the last best places” with more guests. The house is very comfortable, spacious and inviting.

What makes this house unique

Livingston is a friendly town with a wonderful small home town feel where we all watch out and help each other. There are plenty of outdoor guide services available for those who want to fly fish or hike and need a hand. Also great rafting and floating opportunities.

The Red House is well furnished and comfortable with all amenities of home. Great large shady back yard for relaxing and sharing an outdoor meal with your family & friends.

Convenient location - easy walking distance to grocery, park, river, movie theatre and local downtown eateries. You can choose to either get away from it all or immerse yourself in outdoor adventures & festivals. Outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, artists and writers, this place is your home!

Charming in every way!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and homey place to relax while visiting our son. The house is very well equipped and attention to detail throughout. Close proximity to town and not far from other attractions - Yellowstone, natural bridge, Bozeman, etc.

A special thanks for the personal welcome and bottle of wine.

Very well equipped and pleasantly decorated

  • 5 of 5

Stayed late October 2017. We were personally met by the owner who walked us through the house and chatted with us about the local attractions, etc. The house has about any kind of appliance or kitchen implement you could want, with a very large and well organized kitchen, a beautiful and well-furnished dining and living room suite, and three private bed rooms - two of which have their own attached bathrooms. Heating was needed at this time of year, and was more than adequately available throughout the house. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant.

Perfect house for a mini-family reunion weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight (five adults, two teenagers, and a youngster) spent the weekend in the Red House, and it was perfect in every way. We had plenty of room for everyone, and it was quite comfortable. We spent Saturday night around the dinner table playing card games and just having a blast. The house was just what we needed. And Chau is a wonderful host. Stay here - you will love it!

Perfect lodging in lovely Livingston!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in lovely Red House! The property is spacious and very comfortable, as well as beautifully decorated in a style that honors the historic character of the house while reflecting the artistic taste of the owner. Unlike most vacation rentals, this house is fully stocked with everything in the kitchen to cook meals for a family. Red House is perfectly located for exploring Livingston, Bozeman (Museum of the Rockies and Wild Crumb bakery are musts!), Yellowstone NP and the surrounding beauty spots such as Paradise Valley and Big Sky/Gallatin. Chau was super friendly and helpful, steering us to good dining options and local sights. Can't recommend this place highly enough; thanks for opening your beautiful home to visitors!

Sweet Summer in Montana

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the enchanting Red House in Livingston, MT. If we could, we would spend two months there instead of just two weeks! The kitchen is stocked with almost every piece of equipment you would want. The communal areas are well-furnished with the kind of furniture you really don't want to get out of. The three bedrooms are roomy, beds comfortable, and there is ample storage. One of our favorite activities on a late afternoon was to sit on front porch, watching children play nearby. I can't forget to mention the lovely backyard, with gas grill and a table that sat 8. We are now spoiled for all other rentals, I'm afraid!!

One of the best houses I have rented

Absolutely loved this house! It was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of comfortable seating. Chau is a delightful host and has thought of everything to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The location is great for a day trip to Yellowstone or to hang out in Livingston.
