In 1883 the editor Bozeman’s Avant Courier newspaper announced that the newly built upscale neighborhood South of Main Street was quickly becoming a “Bon Ton residence street” (Bon Ton meaning fashionable or sophisticated). Today this section of town is known as the Bon Ton Historic district and is still Bozeman’s most grand and beloved neighborhood. Built in 1880, the Bon Ton House is one of the original homes in this cherished district that sits just steps away from the heart of downtown Bozeman.

Brought back to life by intensive renovations in 2014, the house offers fresh and clean accommodations while still retaining its historical charm. Hot water radiators, glass doorknobs and original hardwood floors give guests a taste of old Bozeman.

With a large, newly landscaped backyard, guests can relax under the shade of a large Maple tree, have a meal at the picnic table, or enjoy a small fire at the fire ring. Wifi is always provided and an off-street parking pad is accessible from the alley. Guests may use the new laundry room at the back of the house where detergent is provided.

The Bon Ton House, rich with history, offers guests a peaceful and restorative home base to explore Downtown Bozeman and the surrounding area.

About Mariana Johnston

Hi, we are Lynwood and Mariana. We love to create beautiful and efficient spaces in unique places.

Why Mariana Johnston chose Bozeman

The Bon Ton House, built in 1880, is one of the original homes in Bozeman’s Bon Ton Historic District south of Main Street Downtown.

When we bought the house, it had been run into the ground as a neglected long-term rental. Even in its dilapidated state, the property still had a wonderful feel and we knew that if we didn't bring it back from the brink it might be lost forever. Working intensely for over a year, we renovated and refreshed every square inch of the house and yard.

It was important to us that we retain the charming 19th century feel of the home so we saved the original windows, trim, interior doors, glass doorknobs, hot water radiatiors, and hardwood flooring. With new fixtures and furnishings, the Bon Ton House is the perfect combination of historical charm and modern comfort.

Possibly the oldest and largest Norway Maple tree in Gallatin Valley stands as the cornerstone of the backyard. Under the shade of this amazing tree, we installed flagstone walkways through a beautiful green lawn and natural stone patios featuring a large picnic table and fire ring with firewood provided free for guests.

After restoring both the house and yard, we furnished each of the three apartments with hand-picked decor and stocked each unit with all the luxuries you would expect from a high-end vacation rental. We make it our goal to ensure a pleasant stay for all guests at this beautiful and charming piece of Montana history.

What makes this house unique

When it comes to location, it doesn't get any better than this. Being just two blocks from Main Street means that guests can stroll down the street and be right in the heart of Bozeman's amazing downtown. The Downtown Bozeman Association is active in ensuring that this part of the city remains the heartbeat of Bozeman. Their motto "Life is Downtown" couldn't be more spot on.

Nice property.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nice, clean, pleasant, has a very good feel. Kitchens are well-equipped. The fire piton the back is great. It is very close to main street which is super convenient. We rented units A, B and C for our families for my son's wedding.

Great location and plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a guys fishing trip. If you're just staying in Bozeman don't even rent a car. You can walk everywhere. Good space for a lot of people. We rented all 3 units so it was nice to get your own room and space. I would only suggest buying some cheap lounge chairs for around the fire pit. The park benches were not comfortable. Would absolutely stay here again.

Fabulous House / Smart location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Bon Ton house was just fabulous. The facilities were perfect for our trip.

We found the property to be clean, comfortable, and very well maintained. Perhaps the best thing for us was the location. From the Bon Ton house we were able to make a short walk to the restaurants, coffee shops, and downtown areas we hoped to visit.

I can recommend this spot without reservations for family trips, corporate retreats, etc – especially for those flying in who might not have ground transportation. We hope to return to Bozeman, and this would be our first choice for accommodations.
