Bright and sunny, private backyard and gardens
This converted Model-A barn is located in the backyard with private yard, alley entrance, and alley parking spot. It has been fully remodeled to include vaulted ceilings with skylights, a full kitchen, gas fireplace and clawfoot bathtub.
The kitchen, living area, and bedroom are in one space and high ceilings with skylight and a big, happy plant overseeing the spacious room. There is a small, traditional bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower, and a closet for storage.
A cast iron gas fireplace easily heats the well-insulated studio. There is a small tv with digital antennae and a dvd player, and of course full-fledged internet service.
The entrance has a new large deck with sitting table and a bbq grill facing the wild gardens maintained by the owners. From the entrance gate in the alley, the foot path meanders under a huge shade tree, past the flower gardens, and to a world record size rhubarb plant welcoming you to the door!
Pets are permitted with a $50 fee per pet and agreement to our pet rules.
One of the best things about the Garden Cottage is how close it is to downtown and the desirable, historic pars of Bozeman. It's easy to leave the car parked and get to much of what Bozeman has to offer, and we also deliver rental bikes to your door as an additional option at roughly half the price of other bike rental options.

About Paul House
I am a painter and teach art to home bound children. I purchased this property when I moved here from Reno, Nevada in 1976 when I came here to study art at MSU.
Paul House purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Paul House chose Bozeman
I had three little children and I bought this property because it was the least expensive house on the market in Bozeman at that time. I loved it because it had character, was near downtown, my kids could walk to school, and it was just as near the foothills. The cottage was just an old garage that was first inhabited by my friends, Greg and Bucky for a year or so to help them save and get started in their married life. When they moved to Dillon my son put a lot of work into making it a nice place and we called it Harold's Ski Palace until he bought his own house. I like small, efficient, cozy spaces and it's fun to share it!
What makes this Cottage unique
The Garden Cottage is a wonderful free-standing one-room suite with no noises from the room next door because there is no room next door. Settle into this historic neighborhood and you'll be just 3 blocks from downtown Bozeman.

Very cozy and conveniently located close to downtown.
Paul was extremely accommodating to us on a very short notice.
The studio style was perfect for us. Clean and tidy!
Would definitely stay there again.
The cottage was clean and comfortable within easy walking distance to town. We plan to stay there again.
Great location. Beautiful cottage. Peaceful and quiet.
Super nice cottage for 1 or 3 people. Great location, quiet and nice outside deck. Will definitely stay again.
Generally as described/advertised.
Conveniently located very near downtown and located within a nice older neighborhood. Very much appreciated that a well behaved dog was accommodated.
The premises could use a bit of extra cleaning from time to time and a bit of routine light maintenance, e.g., sink drain, oscillating floor fam, tree branches heavily rubbed against side of house and rooftop when winds were present one night. Alley parking area small but adequate for mid to small vehicles. Again some trimming of tree branches would be beneficial.
Paul was very responsive regarding a couple of questions. Enjoyed staying at the Garden Cottage.
We are glad you had a good stay and were respectful guests with having your dogs along! We also appreciate the constructive comments and have addressed those issues already. The tree was heavily trimmed this spring but they must have missed a branch that could reach the roof during windy times. And we've had time to do a deep clean. We hope you'll visit again.
Happy Travels, Paul
Cute little cottage tucked back into a quiet garden. One floor, nice kitchen area, comfy bed and a great claw foot tub in the bathroom. Nice deck to sit outside and enjoy a drink. Walking distance to downtown. Cons - limited TV channels (may be a +!), nice skylights add light to the inside, but make sleeping in very difficult. It was unseasonably warm while we were there, but cottage cooled down nicely with fans.
Good Bed, poor Bathroom
When traveling, you want a nice bed and a nice bathroom. Unfortunately, this rental only has one of those. The bed and room was comfortable but the bathroom left a lot to be desired. A rounded bottom claw foot tub/shower with curtain all around and not even a soap dish inside with very touchy water adjustments was unpleasant. The sink is tiny with a small unfinished wood shelf above it and a small mirror to the side. This is a very substandard bathroom and not easy to use.
Bozeman is a great place and the location is convenient, although the walkway in to the cottage has low hanging branches. It was nice to have a small kitchen to prepare coffee and snacks in and the place was clean.
