About the property

Carriage house: living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, fireplace, wifi

This beautiful, spacious, fully stocked apartment was custom built in 2005, and is newly remodeled as a VRBO in 2014. The location is minutes away from downtown Bozeman, 40 miles to Big Sky Ski resort, or 85 miles to Yellowstone National Park.

If you would like to book directly through me or have questions please call me at 406-451-8828.

A driveway leads to a private parking space right next to the front door. Indoor steps lead up to a tiled kitchen, open to the living room with two seating areas; one by the fireplace (games and local interest books are in the shelves), and one with comfortable chairs for visiting or reading. The TV is wall-mounted, and swivels between the spaces, so it may be viewed anywhere. A large bedroom contains a new queen bed with drawers at the foot, and more storage in a wardrobe. Beyond that, a large office desk and chair are tucked into a private nook.

The location is charming, inside the picturesque Valley West subdivision, with walking/running trails, a park with play-area for kids, a lake with a pavilion, and a moment's walk to the Streamline bus stop to access Bozeman's free and wonderful public transportation. Owners live across the yard, and can be reached via text message, phone, email, or doorbell.

There is a $50 cleaning fee per stay, and a 7% resort tax on all stays less than 30 days.

We look forward to having you visit, and we hope you enjoy Montana as much as we do!

About Amy DeFrance

Dan was born and raised in Montana. He's a sixth-generationer! Amy grew up just outside of Detroit, and moved in 1997. We've been married since 2000, have two lovely children. We enjoy the fine things that Montana has to offer, especially hiking and skiing.

Amy DeFrance purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Amy DeFrance chose Valley West

We love this place because it's close to the things we value: fresh air, open spaces, and nature, but still has the amenities of a bustling modern town.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a great neighborhood. During the summer, the sunsets light up the sky in pink and orange, and the winter is crisp and cold with mostly blue skies and a snow white landscape.

Secret Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cute apartment. It was well appointed, and and very comfortable. Everything was neat, clean and well organized. We came to Bozeman to visit relatives, but we found plenty of things to do in the area. This place is located a bit away from downtown, but is easily accessible. It's a really great place to stay if you want to explore Bozeman and the surrounding areas. We wish we could go to Bozeman more often - you must see the Historic Museum and the Museum of the Rockies.

Every amenity in a cozy apartment located in a quiet neighborhood a few miles from downtown

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, completely updated and fully-stocked apartment that far exceeded our expectations. The pictures do this place justice ... it's exactly as shown. There's a well-maintained local park with a small lake, picnic facilities and a nicely equipped playground a short walk away. New amenities such as dining establishments and a convenience store are also easily walkable. Access to downtown is easy by car. The FREE city-sponsored shuttle bus runs close by to get you to the university or to downtown. You can't do better than this place.

2nd stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time to stay at Lark Gables. Very comfortable apartment; extremely well-furnished. There are lots of extras that eliminate the need to purchase or bring kitchen and laundry items. The apartment is located conveniently in Bozeman...about 10 minutes from most locations in town.

Lark Gables Is perfect for a couple or single person. Cute and cozy, extremely clean in a safe neighborhood. Located close to a park with a walk/run trail and near a major thru street, so easy to find your way around Bozeman.

Great location for the Bozeman area

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable 1-BR apartment that was fully accessible to all points around Bozeman. Easy to find from the airport and just minutes from downtown. Cozy atmosphere with good-size kitchen/living area. Separate BR from living area and bathroom just off the kitchen. Plenty of room for bags/suitcases in the BR. The kitchen had all the appliances and kitchenware for meal preparations. Coffee beans and creamer provided along with detergent for washing machine - very self-contained unit for a couple on vacation with a rental car. One very minor issue is the size of the shower, but otherwise a great place to stay.
