About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This cabin is attached to what once was the Old Pray Bar which my husband and I expanded to an art gallery/gift shop. It is located on a four acre parcel surrounded by open pastures, horses, a few homes, and a striking view of the mountains. The apartment is decorated nicely and has all the comforts of home! Fully stocked kitchen, large bedroom with a chair and ottoman, queen bed and 32" television with Dishnet satellite service. Also a washer/dryer as an added convenience.

Relax after Yellowstone on the huge back deck with view of the mountains. The town of Pray is really a wide spot in the road, but 30 minutes from Livingston, 60 minutes from Bozeman and 35 minutes from Yellowstone Park. A favorite destination for many folks, is Chico Hot Springs. Chico offers fine dining, soaking and swimming in fresh, clean, therapeutic waters and live music and dancing on the weekends! Soak and check out the wildlife on the hills above the pool!

If you like quiet and quaint, this may be the right place for you!

This is a new listing, but we are not new to providing accommodations with a dab of character and special touches designed to make you feel special and remember the getaway no matter if it is one day or one week!

About Vicky Holland

I fell in love with this valley in 1993 and moved here to work in a Guest Ranch for the summer of 1994. Met my husband, Gary, that summer at age 39, and the rest is history. Left the hectic lifestyle as a real estate agent in Bellevue, Washington, and discovered that I had a creative side that needed to be awakened by my artist, husband. Bought the old Pray Bar, added on an 1800 square foot gallery and frame shop and settled in! We have two shitzu's, Kopi and Jessie, that assist in running the gallery, while Gabe, a deer-headed chihuahua, keeps me entertained at home managing the vacation rentals and the marketing details with the gallery!

Vicky Holland purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Vicky Holland chose Yellowstone Country

It was a charming space in a town called Pray with a beautiful view and so close to Yellowstone! It answered my call for simplicity!

What makes this apartment unique

Totally self-contained but near restaurants and Chico Hot Springs, as well as the fishing, hiking in the immediate area and 35 minutes to Yellowstone Park, yet only 30 minutes to the perfectly sized town of Livingston! For more extensive shopping and entertainment, the college town of Bozeman is delightful!

Terrific space, amazing location in the heart of Paradise Valley, MT

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful week at the comfy cabin in Pray. The space was clean, cozy and deck area was a treat, staring out to Emigrant Peak and spectacular sunsets. Bed was super comfortable and kitchen was nicely stocked with everything you may need to cook a nice meal. Also, very convenient whether one wants to get to the Park, or to Livingston. Truly, ideal setting for a restful yet inspiring vacation.

Just Beautiful views of the Mountains from your back porch . There a galley next door that has amazing Art from a lot of different Artist in the area , Lot of Native America treasure to be found . Worth a Look .

The apt is well stock , just bring your food & body after a tried day of hiking to the waterfall near by , or after a long Horseback ride up.

Thank You Gary & Vicky Holland for the Great RR stay we had . 😊򒠠We will return again .

Very comfortable little home from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted somewhere away from everything where we could chill out and enjoy the fabulous scenery but also travel easily to Yellowstone Park. Vicky and Gary's cabin proved to be perfect with a nice, friendly bar just down the road a couple of miles when we didn't want to cook and fancied company, and the Northern Gate into the park an easy 40 min drive.

The cabin is clean and cosy and the views are simply stunning. We played 'horseshoes' in the garden in the evenings on a couple of occasions (once startlingly a beautiful Jack rabbit in the field and often watched by the cute little ground squirrels)

Great place to stay.

My most peaceful and wonderful vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Vicky's Pray cozy cabin was my very first "home away" experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat. The cabin is convenient, really comfortable and surrounded by all the beauty that Montana affords. The kitchen was great and I cooked every day. And to have a washer and dryer right in the cabin was wonderful since I was there for 5 weeks. To top it all off, I had my first white Christmas in 50 years! Yahoo!!! Vicky, thanks for everything (especially the Chico hot soak). God Bless and hope to see you again soon. Aloha, Carole
