About the property

2 BR, 2 Full BA, Sleeps 5

We are walking distance to fishing in the Yellowstone River. Imagine walking out the front door and seeing Emigrant Peak at 11,000 feet across the street and hundreds of stars overhead at night! Our vacation retreat is located in the town of Emigrant, MT in Paradise Valley, MT.

We are 55 minutes from the Bozeman-International Airport (BZN). We are a 30 minute, easy ride to the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park at Mammoth Hot Springs. The ride through Paradise Valley to Yellowstone National Park is amazing!

Hells A-Roarin Horse Drive in Gardiner, MT on the Saturday of Memorial weekend, is something to see!

We have spectacular mountain views and three acres of common ground. We are minutes away from Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa where you can enjoy the hot springs pools, fine dining, and entertainment.

We are 25 minutes from Livingston with gourmet restaurants, community theater, a movie theater, art galleries and unique shops. John Banovich has a new art center (gallery) in Paradise Valley.

Come enjoy world-class trout fishing, big game hunting, skiing, horseback riding and river rafting on the Yellowstone River. Also, a great place if you live in Montana, Stay Vacation-Stay Close to Home Vacationing.

Things to Do: Inside of Yellowstone, between Mammoth Hot Springs and Gardiner, Montana, soak in the Boiling River (hot water from Mammoth) and the Gardiner River. This is a great hike and then a refreshing experience. Bring your water shoes to enjoy this activity.

Enjoy the Espresso Bar at Chico Hot Springs Resort Gift Shop and at the Wild Flour Bakery. The Old Saloon and Livery Stable are open 7 days a week here in Emigrant.

About Lisa Rudacil

Rudy and I live in Maryland. Rudy was a home inspector and licensed public insurance adjustor and I am a speech/language pathologist and retired after working for 35 years in the public schools. Rudy is originally from VA and I am originally from MI. We have both lived in 5 different states.

We love to travel, especially in the west, and enjoy visiting our grandsons in Oregon.

We are committed to providing a rental experience that serves our guests and makes their trip as comfortable as possible!

Lisa Rudacil purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Lisa Rudacil chose Yellowstone Country

Rudy and I spent 3 summers vacationing in Montana (Glacier National Park and in Yellowstone). On a trip to Yellowstone in 2005, we stayed at Chico Hot Springs Resort in Paradise Valley and watched as the townhouses, at Avalon Villas, were being built. We were so taken with the breath taking views, the wildlife and Emigrant, that we decided that we wanted to own our own small piece of Montana. Two months later we called the developer and asked her if any of the townhouses were available. There were two left. We chose an end unit, thinking that we would have more light and views of the Big Sky. This all took place while driving on the Washington, DC Beltway. When I turned to my husband to ask him if we he thought that we had made the right decision, he said, 'look out the window.' In the lane next to our vehicle, was a semi-truck from Billings, Montana. I guess that was our sign! We love Montana and Paradise Valley!

What makes this townhome unique

The mountain views from our upper deck off the master bedroom and our patio, are amazing!! Having two full bathrooms, makes our town house much more comfortable and easy for all of the guests to get ready in the morning to start their day in Yellowstone. We have just added a landline phone with unlimited long distance, so if you can't get good reception on your cell phones, you don't have to worry about contacting your friends and family!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was wonderful and stocked full of every different supply anyone could need, you thought of everything! Thank you again for your hospitality, we will definately use your townhouse again!

everything you need and a lovely home too

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this townhouse. It was beyond fully stocked with everything we needed. It is warm and welcoming and so comfortable. The owners left nothing to chance. Loved the location for access to Chico Hot Springs (about 10 minutes away) and Yellowstone (about 45 minutes away). We visited Yellowstone twice, went for a soak at Chico twice, went zip lining and horseback riding and had a great time. The rest of our extended family rented a house nearby and it was super easy to meet up with them. Just down the street, literally, is Follow Your Nose BBQ with great food and really fun live music on Saturday night. Next door to them is Wild Flour Bakery with yummy cinnamon rolls in the morning. Just across the road is a gas station with a great little general store that had all the groceries we needed without a trip to a larger town. If you like a small town feel with all the comforts of home, this is the place to stay. My sister, my son and I really enjoyed it. 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms was perfect for us. The extra twin bed fit my son just fine. Plenty of linens, dishes etc. I wouldn't change a thing and I would certainly stay here again! Thank you Lucy and Rudy for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Beautiful Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay immensely. The townhome is spacious and we had everything we needed. We appreciated that the table was big enough for all of us to sit around for a family meal (as many rentals with enough beds still have small tables). It was quiet and perfect for visiting the Northern part of Yellowstone. The views in Montana are breathtaking.

Mountain relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rudacil townhouse! The accommodations were beautiful, comfortable, and scenic - mountains from the back patio! Great places to eat and drink in Emigrant (Old Saloon, the Livery Stable, and WIldflour Bakery) or within a close commute to Livingston, and wonderful fishing from a variety of public accesses - or schedule a trip with Angler's West Fly Fishing Outfitters there in Emigrant. We really hated to leave!

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

This town home was the perfect place for my family to relax after our days at Yellowstone. It is clean and has a lot of room. Lisa and Rudy have family games for you to play. They have a folder with flyers and menus from restaurants and things to do. They have taken care to make this town home seem like your home away from home. I definitely would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
