Property description

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! You can refer to other reviews by looking at other VRBO listings of ours, #191225 and #187368!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Pray, MT, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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!
