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.

Subdivided into three fully furnished apartment units, the Bon Ton House offers accommodations for groups of various sizes.

Unit A - 3br/1ba - VRBO #602133 -
Unit B - 2br/1ba - VRBO#602136 -
Unit C - 1br/1ba - VRBO#680278 - (this listing)

Owner info

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

Why the Owner Chose Bozeman, MT, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
