EMIGRANT LODGE - 4 bedroom home with central airconditioning

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,184 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

This four bedroom, two bath vacation rental home is located off of U.S. Highway 89 in the scenic Paradise Valley area of southwest Montana. The home has central air conditioning. This home, with its breathtaking views, makes this an ideal Montana vacation retreat. A short scenic drive leads to Yellowstone National Park. Fly fishing enthusiasts, hikers, horseback enthusiasts and anyone who loves the outdoors will enjoy their stay in this area of Big Sky Country.

This home is a NON SMOKING home and this home does NOT accommodate PETS.

Benefits/Strengths of Emigrant Lodge:

1. THE VIEW. We believe that the view is breathtaking. We have seen the property in the early Spring and late Fall. The pictures speak for themselves. The amazing views can be had from the deck, the screen porch, the 3 bedrooms which face Paradise Valley, and the living room.

2. THE LOCATION. The home is approximately 30 minutes from Roosevelt Arch/Yellowstone National Park, approximately 15 minutes from Chico Hot Springs, approximately 30 minutes from Livingston, approximately 60 minutes from Bozeman and approximately 5 minutes from portions of the Yellowstone River. The small town of Emigrant is approximately 10 minutes from the house; Emigrant has a small convenience store, a fly shop, restaurants, a bank, etc.

3. THE WILDLIFE. We have regularly seen groups of deer in the yard and between US Highway 89 and the house. There are rabbits which live around the house and have little fear of people. We are told that elk have been seen on the property but we have not yet seen them. From the deck and porch you can see grazing and production fields which, at times, have cows and deer. In the mornings it was not uncommon to wake up to the sound of songbirds.

4. THE HOME. In 2014 the home was extensively renovated. The walls in the kitchen were removed and new sheetrock walls were installed, new counters were installed, new cabinets were installed, new appliances (stove, fridge, and dishwasher) were installed and a new vinyl tile floor was installed. The plates, cups, silverware, pots, pans, etc. are good quality and were also replaced in 2014. The home has a nicely equipped kitchen including coffeemaker, tea pot, crock pot, electric griddle, toaster and serving dishes.

The walls in 3 of the 4 bedrooms were removed, re-insulated

and new sheetrock was installed and painted.

In 2014 we also replaced all of the carpeting in the house.

The living room has a matching couch, chair and ottoman, side tables, a coffee table and an entertainment center. The entertainment center has a new HD television and a DVD/VHS player.

The dining room table easily seats 6 people; it has 6 matching chairs. There is also a kitchen bar with two stools adjacent to the dining room table. The dining room has a fairly new laminate floor.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, a large bureau with a mirror, a night stand, and a large armoire which contains a new television. The bedroom which is adjacent to the guest bathroom has a queen bed, a nightstand, a cedar blanket chest and a bureau. The third bedroom has a queen bed, a bureau, and a nightstand. This bedroom has a new television. The last bedroom is set up as a kids bedroom. It has 2 twin beds and 2 bureaus. It does not have a television. All of the bedrooms have large closets and are nicely decorated.

The screen porch has 2 rocking chairs, a loveseat, 2 chairs, 2 ottomans and table. The deck has a picnic table and 4 Adirondack chairs and matching tray table.

5. INTERNET/SATELLITE TV. The home has WI-FI with DISH Internet service. DISH Internet service is limited; streaming and downloading is NOT allowed due to the limited nature of the service. Satellite TV is provided by DISH.

6. NEIGHBORS. There is a good amount of space between the house and other homes. The closest homes are behind and uphill from the house. When one stands in the driveway one can see one of those homes and a number which lie between the home and the valley below. We have yet to meet all of the neighbors but the ones we have met appear to be 'the salt of the earth'.

7. QUIET. We are struck by the silence only punctuated by the sound of the wind, the songs of the birds, and the occasional sound of a very distant cow.

8. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact us.

Why Lorraine chose Yellowstone Country

In 2007 we visited Yellowstone National Park and fell in love with the area. Since 2007 we have vacationed in YNP on almost a yearly basis and each year we fantasized about the possibility of one day owning a Montana home that would serve as our retirement home and a gateway into YNP; unfortunately, as years passed this dream seemed to be beyond our reach. In late 2013 one of Lorraine's friends asked her to join her on a trip to the Yellowstone area and while she was visiting she had the opportunity to look at a number of homes that were for sale in the Emigrant area. After a great deal of soul searching and lengthy negotiations we were able to acquire 'Emigrant Lodge.' The home had a great many strengths but also needed a fair amount of renovations. Two trips to Montana and with the assistance of some amazing contractors/friends we have been able to perform a great many of the necessary renovations. While all of the planned renovations have not been completed we are well on our way. We are most fortunate to have been able to acquire this home and are pleased with the results of our renovation efforts; we are confident that you and your family will find this to be a comfortable and enjoyable home away from home.

Beautiful lodge only a short drive to Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location! The house was so spacious and allowed our big group to spread out a bit after a busy day of sightseeing. The screened in porch was amazing and offered a great view of the area. The property was clean and well maintained and stocked with enough linens for our group. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. They thought of everything. We would love to stay here again!

Beautiful panorama

  • 4 of 5

Lovely place. The view is gorgeous from the back patio and screened in porch. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped (including with plastic cups and plates for kids, which was nice for us). It was an easy drive to Gardiner and Yellowstone, and we also enjoyed a day at Chico Hot Springs.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location to explore Yellowstone National Park. The house is a 30 minute drive to the north entrance of Yellowstone, which we drove to and explored twice while we were staying there. We loved the screen in porch to drink coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night. The house has gorgeous views of Paradise Valley and Absaroka Mountain range. While your staying at the house, you should reserve a table at the Yellowstone Valley Grill. It's about a 15 minute and a beautiful spot with amazing food. Great vacation with the family!

Great Yellowstone House

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this house. Great base for Yellowstone explorations. I am very picky about cleanliness and this house surpassed my expectations. Would highly recommend this house! Owners were very responsive. We had 7 in our group and the house was extremely spacious and comfortable. We lived in the awesome screened in room, relaxing at the end of the day enjoying the beautiful mountain view. The welcome gift was an unexpected delight making us feel like we were truly welcomed into the home. You won't want for anything in this house! Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home.
