Fantastic Modern "Green" Home In Downtown Bozeman

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,788 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.

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 (and where I still live). 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 is set to be built across the alley, starting in the spring of 2016.

What makes this house unique

Walk or ride Downtown!

ALSO walk or ride to the NE neighborhood shops! You will absolutely love Wild Crumb Bakery. Enjoy craft beers at the Bozeman Brewing Company and (sometimes) BBQ from the Blue Smoke food truck parked next to it.

Enjoy mountain views from a house that is right Downtown!

Enjoy the sunshine the 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.

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

Charming house with good location

  • 4 of 5

This property is well-done with creative architecture and attention to detail. Location couldn't be beat either as it is within walking distance from Main St where there is a lot to see, do, eat and drink. The only reason I cannot give it 5 stars is that it does not have A/C which made the loft sleeping less than ideal a couple of the nights. You can open the windows to get a cool breeze but then you'll here the train throughout the night. Sleeping in the two bedrooms below the loft were comfortable though. Apparently it is quite common to not have A/C in Bozeman.

Great family space for Bozeman area!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults, and 3 kids, ages 10,14,16) stayed first week in July. House was clean, and well stocked for cooking, and many bonuses a lot of rentals do not have. We enjoyed the loft for our 2 teens, and privacy for my husband and I. Loved the ability to play our music, and walk to most restaurants and shopping. Jason gave excellent communication start to finish, and even found a tubing company on the fly while we were on our way to check in, and we had one less thing to do. All of his recommendations were great for dining and grocery shopping. Check out was easy, and we would definitely stay here or any of his properties in the future.

If you're staying in Bozeman, you will love being within walking distance of Downtown. If you stay on the North side or in the NE neighborhood, you'll also be within walking distance to the fantastic NE offerings, the best of which include Wild Crumb bakery, Treeline Coffee, Bozeman Brewing Company, and Cannery District (through the Fairgrounds, across Oak Street).


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Pet Fee $25 + Tax
Cleaning $150 + Tax
Refundable damage deposit $750
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.
