About the property

1br/1ba luxury apartment located in the heart of downtown Bozeman Montana.


Stay in Bozeman's most cherished neighborhood just steps away from the heart of downtown. Built in 1880, the Bon Ton House is one of the original homes located within the Bon Ton Historic district and offers guests turn-of-the-century ambiance combined with modern comfort and unbeatable location.

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

Located just two blocks South of Main Street in Bozeman’s lively downtown, Bon Ton House guests enjoy the convenience of an easy stroll to all of the local businesses that make Bozeman so unique. The local farm-to-table mentality of the Gallatin Valley means that visitors have access to countless locally owned restaurants, bistros, coffee shops, and tasting rooms offering high-quality gourmet cuisine and beverages.

Local gear shops, ski shops, bike shops, western boutiques, book stores, and a historic theatre (The Ellen) are just steps away from house. The Bon Ton House is a frequent home base for visitors to Montana State University.

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.


This is unit is located within a shared house, and rambunctious behavior including running, stomping, hollering, and wailing has the potential to disturb other guests staying on the property. Guests who choose to stay in this unit are expected to be respectful of other renters and refrain from these types of activities while on the property. THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. While small gatherings are permitted before quiet hours (9pm), large parties and gatherings are NEVER permitted on the property. If there is any chance your group might not be able/willing to refrain from running, being boisterous, or hosting parties, we recommend finding a vacation rental facility better suited to your needs.

About Mariana Johnston

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

Mariana Johnston purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Mariana Johnston chose Yellowstone Country

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

When we bought the house in 2012, it had been run into the ground as a neglected long-term rental. Even in its dilapidated state, the house 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, with the help of friends and family, we renovated and refreshed every square inch of the property.

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 apartment 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.

The place was perfectly located in historic Bon Ton neighborhood walking distance to shops, restaurants. The place was immaculate and cozy with all the amenities. We shopped at the co-op and farmers markets and cooked. Mariana and Linwood were wonderful hosts! We'll be back! Thank you!

Charming one bedroom apartment in heart of old Bozeman

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the accommodations. Clean. Great little kitchenette. Comfortable bed. And the best part for us was the centralized location situated in a charming historical neighborhood. We were walking distance from old downtown Bozeman. And we were not too far from MSU.

We had a lovely stay for the better part of a week. The apartment is very nicely furnished and we were pleased to find some bathroom and kitchen essentials provided. When we needed extra blankets, the owners responded promptly. It was great to have access to the lovely back yard and we enjoyed a patio fire while we made S'mores. We loved being close to downtown and having off street parking. It couldn't have been better. We will gladly stay here again!

Very clean and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the space. It is very close to downtown and has a great outdoor space. We never heard the other renters or street noise. We were disappointed there was no air conditioner...the nights were uncomfortably warm. We also wished there would have been a larger bed.

This property was excellent!! The Unit was clean, extremely well kept and decorated wonderfully! Very comfortable. The backyard was very enjoyable as well, picnic table, shade and fun rocks! The details and thought put into this property were astonishing....they truly thought of everything. We walked several times to a little park that was close by at night to relax. It was very convenient to downtown. We walked every night to enjoy the many restaurant choices Bozeman has to offer, even stopping for ice cream before walking home. Would absolutely rent again!
