About Traci and Jamison Isaly

Jamison and I have lived in Montana for over 35 years. We bought a small farmstead in 1983, the year we were married, on Quinn Creek road, which is located near the Bozeman Pass. We have lived in the same cabin for 32 years and raised 3 children & many cats, dogs, chickens, pigs, calves, horses, ponies, plants, vegetables and numerous other critters. We love Montana! We love the outdoor arena, big sky, clean water, fresh air, and open space and family! We are both hard working committed community members. Jamison is going into his 25th year of teaching in Livingston. He is the high school Industrial Technology teacher at Park High School! I am a working artist, dabbling in a variety of mediums. My work can be found at The Raven’s Nest and in local shops in Livingston and other artisan shops in Montana. We hope we can help you experience a wonderful vacation by allowing us to be your host & hostess at The Raven's Nest, here in Livingston, Montana!

Warmest regards,

Traci Jo Isaly

Traci and Jamison Isaly purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Traci and Jamison Isaly chose Yellowstone Country

Why this property:

We purchased this quaint and charming little home in November of 2013. It was in tough shape, but nothing that could not be amended! We have spent the past year and 8 months remodeling each room, some with lots of repurposed components. We tried to stay true to the simple, yet fine architectural lines of the original structure and found materials that were complimentary to the original intent. We were able to establish a fresh new easy-living style to the design elements and space. Many of building materials were either repurposed, purchased, harvested, or made locally. Because of the crisp clean & simplistic approach to the elemental decor, the space feels fresh, friendly and very inviting.

What makes this bungalow unique

The location of this rental is so perfectly convenient, yet allows for some quiet space and privacy. The house was built strong and tight so is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Everything you need is literally minutes away, including walking/biking paths, the river, groceries, art, museums, dining, coffee shops, and even medical care!

Throughout this lovely home you will be introduced to many of our local writers, artists, and musicians by way of their featured works!

Close to everything, great for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer to visit Livingston, but first time at Raven's Nest. We found the house to be more than enough room for a family of four and owners we could reach at a moment's notice. We would definitely recommend it to others.

Very cozy and livable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and has an open floor plan. We really enjoyed the walkout deck in the mornings for coffee and breakfast. Walking to every thing in town was a real plus even though we had a car. Thoroughly enjoyed the house. Thanks!

Dog Friendly Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cozy bungalow in the heart of Livingston. Walking distance to restaurants. Fenced in back yard for dogs. Fully equipped kitchen for home-cooked meals. Traci was an excellent host and always a phone call away. She even left us local coffee to enjoy during our stay! Raven's nest is a true gem.

Beautifully Restored

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Tracy and Jamie have done a exceptional job of renovating this classic Livingston home. It is obvious that a lot of skill, effort, and artistic vision went into the project. It was a pleasure to enjoy the fruits of these labors. And despite the extremely low temperatures outside, inside was always cozy and warm. Thanks very much!

Perfect space for enjoying Livingston

Raven's Nest was by far, the best vacation rental we've stayed in....ever !!

Obviously the owners are artistic, and it shows in every corner of the house. We come up twice a year,

And will definitely rent this home again .
