About Mariana Johnston

Hi, we are Lynwood and Mariana. We love to create beautiful and efficient spaces in unique places.

Why Mariana Johnston chose Bozeman

The Bon Ton House, built in 1880, is one of the original homes in Bozeman’s Bon Ton Historic District south of Main Street Downtown.

When we bought the house, it had been run into the ground as a neglected long-term rental. Even in its dilapidated state, the property still had a wonderful feel and we knew that if we didn't bring it back from the brink it might be lost forever. Working intensely for over a year, we renovated and refreshed every square inch of the house and yard.

It was important to us that we retain the charming 19th century feel of the home so we saved the original windows, trim, interior doors, glass doorknobs, hot water radiatiors, and hardwood flooring. With new fixtures and furnishings, the Bon Ton House is the perfect combination of historical charm and modern comfort.

Possibly the oldest and largest Norway Maple tree in Gallatin Valley stands as the cornerstone of the backyard. Under the shade of this amazing tree, we installed flagstone walkways through a beautiful green lawn and natural stone patios featuring a large picnic table and fire ring with firewood provided free for guests.

After restoring both the house and yard, we furnished each of the three apartments with hand-picked decor and stocked each unit with all the luxuries you would expect from a high-end vacation rental. We make it our goal to ensure a pleasant stay for all guests at this beautiful and charming piece of Montana history.

What makes this apartment unique

When it comes to location, it doesn't get any better than this. Being just two blocks from Main Street means that guests can stroll down the street and be right in the heart of Bozeman's amazing downtown. The Downtown Bozeman Association is active in ensuring that this part of the city remains the heartbeat of Bozeman. Their motto "Life is Downtown" couldn't be more spot on.

Lovely place and the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Bon Ton house for 4 nights with my son - we were bringing him to Bozeman to start at MSU. The apartment (A) was perfect for us. The beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed and there was coffee for me which made my day. There were other families staying there and the fire pit in the gorgeous backyard was a nightly gathering place. We loved our stay and will definitely return!

Great for town centre; great host, decor a little dated

  • 4 of 5

Booking and pre-stay communication could not have been better - Mariana was very prompt with her replies and really helpful with information about our stay, not just about the house but also for Bozeman, Yellowstone etc.

The house is just five minutes walk from Bozeman main street so we were able to leave the car behind for meals, shopping and looking at the sights. Mariana also alerted us to the Streamline (free) bus service, one of which stops right outside the house and this was really useful for traveling a little further round town.

The house has everything you need for a short stay - laundry facilities being particularly impressive. Beds were comfortable and linen etc clean and fresh. Dining facilities in the kitchen were ok for four people but could maybe be a bit cramped for six. There is a good-sized outside picnic table in the garden (some comfy deckchairs would be a bonus for sunbathing/relaxing outdoors)

Furniture and decoration is a little dated and we would have liked air conditioning (July daytime temperatures were in the high 80s). Whilst it did cool down at night we had to leave the windows open for air and use the fans to keep cool. These were noisy so did affect our comfort a little. The other downside is that there is only one bathroom/toilet and even four of us had to queue up at times for access.

Altogether though we would recommend Bon Ton house as a good place to stay in Bozeman, particularly for it closeness to the centre of town

Lovely apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 shared this 3 bedroom unit while visiting our son in Bozeman. It is in a great location, walking distance to the restaurants & shops of Main Street and close to the University. It was spacious and had what we needed to make some breakfasts and a dinner in the kitchen. It was just perfect for our stay!

Comfortable and clean accommodations, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The Bon Ton House was a perfect place for my family and me to stay when we brought my granddaughter to tour and interview at MSU. The house is just a couple of blocks off Main Street for easy access to shops and restaurants and just a mile from campus. Easy check-in/ check-out, all the necessities were supplied, and Mariana was a welcoming and available host.
