Fantastic Modern "Green" Home In Downtown Bozeman

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

3-Bed, 2-Bath, Archictectural Award Winner, Full of Sunshine, Mountain Vews

Completely custom modern "green" home, architecturally designed with elegant fixtures and finishes. MT State AIA Award-Winner.

OUTSTANDING LOCATION: 2 blocks from Beall Park, which I think is Bozeman's best neighborhood. Walk or ride not only to downtown (shops, bars, restaurants, grocery) but also to the NE neighborhood (amazing bakery, great new coffee shop, brewery), the fairgrounds (farmers market) or the Cannery District (brekkie/lunch spot, pizza, brewery, distillery, kombucha bar, more). The absolute best of in-town living in Bozeman.

MAIN LIVING: on the 2nd floor -- lets you live downtown but still above the street and neighboring houses. Mountain views, especially during winter, when the leaves are off the deciduous trees.

KITCHEN: open to the dining and living areas; extra large gas cooktop; custom spice rack.

MASTER: bedroom - king bed; 2 closets. Master bath -- 2 shower heads with separate controls and custom glass tile; toilet in area separated by pocket door.

2ND BEDROOM -- on the ground floor with a king bed; bathroom adjacent with luxurious shower and custom everything.

SLEEPING LOFT: accessed via a pivoting staircase (national award-winning small project!); double bed, twin bed, upholstered chair, and dresser. A very cozy space.

3 BALCONIES: off the kitchen, south-facing, and with a propane grill; off the living room, north-facing; and off the master bedroom, south-facing.

BONUS for CYCLISTS or SKIERS: I'm a cyclist (road, gravel & mountain biking) and a skier (most often Nordic but also alpine and backcountry). I have lots of info for your cycling or skiing adventures and work stands and tools that you could use.

About Jason

I moved to Bozeman in 2001 just by good luck. I absolutely love Montana, Bozeman, Downtown Bozeman, and all the opportunities for outdoor adventure that abound here. Great people, too. No wonder -- so many of us moved here for the great quality of life, and we're happy!

Jason purchased this house in 2007

Why Jason chose Bozeman

The good fortune continued and resulted in the Apple Treehouse being built in 2007 on a new lot that was created from the side yard of the house that I bought when I moved here. It was the first of my smart infill projects and is "green" in many respects (an infill project, small lot, small footprint, well insulated, solar hot water, solar electricity, green materials used throughout).

Across the alley from the Apple Treehouse, I bought my neighbor's place in 2013 and have created two new small lots for quality infill, as well as fully restoring the historic brick house that was on it. The restoration project received a Historic Preservation Award from the City of Bozeman. Apple Treehouse version 2.0 was built across the alley in 2017 and is my current house.

What makes this house unique

Walk or ride Downtown!

ALSO walk or ride to the NE neighborhood, Cannery District, and Fairgrounds! You will absolutely love Treeline Coffee and Wild Crumb Bakery. Enjoy craft beers at the Bozeman Brewing Company and Mountains Walking Brewery (and wood-fired pizza). Cannery District: Pizza Campania (also wood-fired), Lot G (creative brekkie and lunch), 406 Brewing, Wildrye Distilling.

Enjoy mountain views from a house that is right Downtown!

Enjoy the sunshine that comes into a house with 2nd-floor main living.

Feel good about staying in a house that heats its own hot water and produces its own electricity.

Also a wealth of local info.

Perfect house for our group

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bozeman with 4 teenagers to tour the University. This house worked perfect for our group with girls on 3rd floor and boys at bottom level. House decor is impeccable and it is outfitted with all the amenities one would need: wifi, stocked kitchen, cable tv, comfy seating, fireplace, blankets, etc. Jason was easy to work with and a wealth of information on area. Would stay here again.

Wonderful stay in a bright and modern house

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing trip to Bozeman and very much enjoyed staying in this home for Christmas. It was very well-equipped and clean. We very much appreciated the heated floors and unique fireplace to keep us warm during our stay. It was also very bright so even on the chilly days the sun warmed the place right up. The location was excellent in that it was close to downtown but also quick to get up to Bridger Bowl. Our young children loved being able to walk to Beall Park to play in all the snow. Jason was great with communication and easy to contact if we had questions. We would definitely recommend this home and would stay here again!

Very impressive modern home!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best properties we have ever stayed for winter vacation. The home is decorated nicely with super comfy beds. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and the property owner stayed in touch to make sure all was well. We will be back next year for additional skiing.

Loved this house, its location and owner

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very pleased with this house, its amenities and its location. Jason is a very thoughtful homeowner in terms of the design of the house, its furnishings, and how it is stocked and organized. This thoughtfulness caused my family and I to be very happy with the house in every way including hosting a gathering at it after our daughter's graduation, which our guests enjoyed in part because the house is so cool and comfortable as well as because we got a taste of living nearly in downtown Bozeman. We walked from the house into Bozeman several times for going out to eat, going to karaoke at the Eagle's club, running errands and more and loved this aspect of the house's location. In addition, it is a pet friendly home and we genuinely appreciated having our daughter's dog there with us throughout our stay. There's even a small fenced in yard, which was great. Should a need for a house of this size arise in the future, we would definitely rent it again because the house and its owner, Jason were and are a pleasure!

Excellent, warm, fun house fully stocked from bathroom to kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend stay here when visiting Bozeman. The location was ideal, close to downtown and restaurants while still in a quiet neighborhood. Jason was very welcoming and available when we had questions. The house had an ideal set up for our family of 4 with grandparents in tow. Our 10 year old son was endlessly entertained by the unique pulley staircase to the loft. All in all an excellent choice. Would be a tough place to stay for someone who has difficulty with stairs as the kitchen and living room are upstairs.

A wonderful light filled home with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect for my husband and I while we stayed in Bozeman visiting our daughter and new grandson. The kitchen was well equipped for all the cooking I did , and a great selection of coffee pots. We had a great location to town and to our daughters home. Just a perfect experience. Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you, Monica! I enjoyed visiting with you, your husband, your son-in-law, and your son during the different times that our paths crossed. So glad the house worked out so well for you. Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter! --Jason

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $150 + Tax
Refundable damage deposit $750
Pet Fee $25 + Tax
Tax Rate 7.0%

The $100 initial payment is a NON-REFUNDABLE reservation hold fee.
The remainder of the rental amount is due 45 days before the start of the booking, and that part is refundable for cancellations made more than 30 days before the start of the booking. For cancellations made closer than 30 days to the start of the booking, refunds will be given only to the extent that the house replacement bookings are obtained using my normal efforts.
Rates are subject to change until reservations are confirmed.
The reason for the cleaning fee is to allow shorter bookings and a lower per-night charge. Every guest stay, regardless of length, requires the house to be cleaned. I pay the cleaners a living wage. If you use only 1 bed/bedroom, I'll refund $50 of the cleaning fee. If you use only 2 beds/bedrooms, I'll refund $25.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
