About the property

One bedroom with full kitchen and bath with town and mountain views

Private apartment (562 sf) with separate entrance downstairs from family on 23 acres, separate bedroom with queen bed, walk-in closet, dresser, full kitchen with breakfast and dining table, bathroom with radiant floor heat, full-size W/D, quiet cork flooring, wifi, and TV/DVD. We are right next to hiking/biking/running trails which connect to the valley trail system. We live in a peaceful rural setting with views of town and mountains. If you are interested in outdoor activities in an educated mountain town, Bozeman in southwest Montana is ideal. We are ten minutes from town, twenty minutes from our local downhill ski area and from an Olympic-class cross-country course as well as one hour from Big Sky and Moonlight Basin Ski Resorts. We encourage you to visit our first national park, Yellowstone, filled with geysers, bison, wolves and grizzly bears. It is truly spectacular. Note that this is a smoke-free property--due to fire laws and the health of all of our guests, no smoking is allowed anywhere on the property. Thank you for your understanding. In the winter, we recommend a 4WD/AWD vehicle.

About Pamela Poon

We are two professionals who enjoy travel and outdoor activity. We have traveled extensively in Asia and some in Europe, Mexico, and the South Pacific. One or both of us enjoy rock and ice climbing, back-country and downhill skiing, and backpacking in wilderness areas. We are also love to read and go to local theater and performing arts events. We have two grown daughters who live in California and come home to visit when they can. We also have a very friendly 4 year old golden retriever.

Pamela Poon purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Pamela Poon chose Bozeman

We chose this property because we enjoy the peace of a rural mountain life. The air is clear, red-tail hawks, great-horned owls and coyotes often sing us to sleep. We see snowshoe hares dance in the winter-and the occasional black bear comes by in the fall!

What makes this apartment unique

We are surrounded by more than 1000 acres of undeveloped land, but are close to town for work and entertainment. The mountain views from our house are splendid and the lights of town are terrific at night. Coffeehouses, an artisanal bakery, and even Walmart are ten minutes away but we away from it all too.

There just aren't words to describe how amazing this place is!

  • 5 of 5

I must say, my husband initially gave me a hard time about booking a stay at someone's home. However, after staying at Pam and Robin's, he couldn't stop talking about how "perfect" the set-up was. He called it an "eye-opening" experience to a whole new way of booking travel! First, the apartment was super clean!! I generally complain about cleanliness at hotels--he was glad I was comfortable as it made for a more pleasant vacation for us both--haha! Next, it initially looked as if it was pretty much in the middle of nowhere. However, it was a 5 minute (or less) drive into town! It was seriously the perfect location--gave us the feel of being in Montana without making us feel too secluded! Lastly, as my husband described the hosts--Pam and Robin--they are "good people". Just can't say enough about how beautiful Montana is and how much we enjoyed this experience! Thank you so much Pam and Robin! You are truly some of the nicest people we have met! We look forward to returning one day with the rest of our family!:-)

Picturesque home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Pamela's rental was the perfect little spot for my sister and I to make our Thanksgiving dinner and catch up on life. It was cozy and comfortable. Just out of town enough to be peaceful with a great view while being convenient to all the activities we did. Pamela, Robin, and the pups were very welcoming.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Pam and Robin are wonderful hosts! Their little corner of the world was everything and more than described on the site. Although we didn't have much time to visit since we were out exploring, the time we did have made us feel very welcome.

We will definitely stay again if/when we return to the Bozeman area!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful country apartment with us!

Beautiful location, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved this location, we had great views of the valley and city of Bozeman from the balcony and a short drive to enjoy the city itself. What a wonderful way to wind down our vacation to yellowstone. We hope to be back in the future!

Cozy apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

Was a nice get away, but close to town, owners Robin and Pamela were very friendly and accommodating. Lots to do in the area, including hiking , and lots of restaurants to chose from. Great view from the deck, including wildlife.

Out of Town but So Close

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed three visits and each time it has been just the right place to stay.

Lovely view from the deck and a small green lawn that overlooks Bozeman...

Big Gulch is away from noise and town, but with just a few minutes drive is

near everything. Large bath with washer/dryer, nice kitchen with all you need,

open space where you can sit and read or watch a bit of television (few channels available)

but we don't watch a lot of TV...PBS is good. Would recommend to those who like to

be away from it all, yet has all you would want on a Bozeman vacation. Lee & John D.
