About Steve & Margee Newhall

I purchased this 40 acres in 2005 after living in nearby Livingston Mt. since 1977. It is my dream retirement home after 28 yrs. at the Livingston Post Office. My two Sons now have places of their own, and I married my dream husband in 2007. We both love it here and decided to share our place. We will be vacationing ourselves in our 29 ft. RV, on our property, discretely away from the vacation home. We respect your Montana vacation experience and privacy. The views are spectacular and you can have the experience of a lifetime.

Why Steve & Margee Newhall chose Livingston

Location, Location Location! Rightly named , Paradise Valley, and only 34 miles to Yellowstone Park.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this property's views, privacy, comfortable new home with high wood ceilings, open floor plan, hardwood floors, walk in shower and many, many windows. We have since improved many aspects of this property in very unique ways, such as the landscaping and local juniper wood accents.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts, Steve & Margee, went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable! The house was immaculate and beautiful. There was fresh bread and chocolate chip cookies along with fresh country eggs in the refrigerator.

Our family enjoyed everything about the house and the great view. We highly recommend this as a great place to stay and visit Yellowstone. Can't praise this place high enough!! Just stay there and you will understand what I'm trying to verbalize.

Owner's Response: What a pleasure it was to host Janet and her family! Super friendly & fun group! They left our home clean & tidy. They shared good & helpful advice on gardening. It was much appreciated as this was our first year. We also are considering beekeeping, and they shared their knowledge and passion and experience as beekeepers themselves. We Highly recommend them!

We enjoyed to spend time in this beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Margee were very nice and friendly. Perfect location on good height and spectacular views. We would recommend anyone visiting from north entry of Yellowstone to stay here. Worth to spend even 36-40 minute drive to Gardiner MT. Considerable as a second home. Our rooms were so spacious, nice, clean, well organized and comfortable that we (six person) did not want to leave. We looked at other 25 similar properties between Livingston - Garndiner MT and must say that we love to stay again in this house. Thanks
