Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Aaron and Jessica moved to Montana in 2012 because it really is the 'Last Best Place.' Aaron, a Navy veteran and agriculture student, and Jessica, a physical therapist, love to welcome friends, family, and guests to our cabin. We are slowly but surely working to develop a large garden/small farm on our land and look forward to someday having goats, horses, and cattle in addition to our chickens.

Why the Owner Chose Wineglass (Livingston, MT, USA):
We bought this property because it was a dream come true. Beautiful, spacious, close to town but secluded, perfect for animals and gardening...we love it!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with the view from the front porch of the cabin, and we are sure you will too.
