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.

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 Bozeman

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.

Comfortable, clean and great location

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.

Very comfortable. Nice location.

  • 5 of 5

We found the property to be neat, well provisioned and extremely comfortable. Our hosts were gracious, even if we had a bit of a problem figuring out how to use the drier. We texted them and they came over and explained how to use use it. The location is excellent. There is a park with creek and a small lake less than a block away. We enjoyed walking around the park, and walking through the neighborhood for exercise. It was easy to get anywhere we wanted in Bozeman - It is outside of town a little bit, but you get right to Main Street and you can get downtown or to MSU in minutes. The one thing I would note is that access to the apartment is through an alley. If you follow a GPS, you come to their front door, and you will have to go around the block to the alley. That is only a problem if you don't read the instructions. However, the hosts were very kind when we came to the front door, and explained what we needed to do. I mention this because of how kind and cooperative they were. We definitely plan to return in the future. Bozeman is a nice little city with lots of things to do.

Perfect for our needs, and very accomadating owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a month while our home was being finished. It was the perfect stop-gap on the way to our new home. The apartment had everything we needed so we didn't have to move things twice. The Owners were very accommodating when we had to extend our stay by a few days. Everything is nice, clean and in good working condition. The neighborhood is great. There is a path that goes right by the house and and fantastic park at the end of block. I would recommend staying here.
