If I could give it more than five stars, I would.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in several VRBOs in the past, I think I was prepared for the usual issues. (Unresponsive managers, dirtiness, incomplete information, broken or rundown equipment, etc.) But this place just exceeded every expectation I had. The managers (who live nearby) were extremely responsive when we had questions, and definitely went out of their way to make the place feel welcoming for us. I truly did feel like we were staying in a home.

My writer's co-op all got together to do a retreat together in Bozeman, and the views were amazing. The whole house was fantastic, and they even thought of things like earplugs and make-up towels. Seriously, I can't recommend this place highly enough.

It was a tiny bit difficult to find the driveway at night, so I would recommend having your Google Maps set, because it does tell you exactly when to turn. We had to turn around in the neighbor's driveway a couple of times at night (which, in the winter, is pretty early). And there were only two showers (but for people with families, there are also two bathtubs, so bathing little kids would have been a cinch), which if our whole group had come, might have been an issue in the mornings. But honestly, for those to be the only complaints, those of you who VRBO or AB&B regularly, that's pretty amazing.

On the upside, the house is incredible (great layout for big groups), and there's so much wildlife. We saw two big bald eagles, several hawks, a whole bunch of deer, and all kinds of birds. So peaceful and private. Inspiring, for us, a bunch of writers who were trying to be creative.

We will 100% be coming back to Cherry Creek Guest House. Can't recommend it highly enough. (From an avid traveler and regular VRBO user, this might have been our best VRBO experience yet.)

Owner's Response: Dear Becca - Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We love this property and it is so gratifying when our guests connect with everything that makes it special from the wildlife to the views to the home itself. The good news is that we have plans to add a shower in the "vintage" bathroom. Lighting is difficult on the road because of the deep snow but we'll work on that too! We very much look forward to your next stay with us ... perhaps Cherry Creek will inspire a scene in one of your books! Best wishes for much continued success. Michael and Debra

Comfortable, clean, extra amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathering at Cherry Creek over Thanksgiving weekend was very enjoyable. The home is spacious and uniquely decorated. We enjoyed family cooking together in the well equipped kitchen. Close enough to Bozeman to explore! The owners are easy to deal with and so friendly. Put this home on your 'must stay' list!

The house was more than we expected. Very spacious and homey at the same time. Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

For a family with 3 active teenagers, we just wanted to have a getaway where we could just relax and connect as a family. We relaxed in the hot tub, played board games, etc. We made so many memories. Saw some wildlife in the back yard. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

Home was situated conveniently for access to both downtown Bozeman and everything outdoors that the area has to offer. Country-like setting with all the amenities that you could want. Well stocked with the essentials plus more let us truly just show up and enjoy.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay. There is nothing quite like escaping to the country with town only minutes away. Hope some of our wildlife and birds paid you a friendly visit. We had two baby golden eagles on the fence last night! Look forward to your next stay. Michael and Debra

Why Michael and Debra Gill chose Bozeman

A little piece of history

– in 1806, William Clark and Sacajawea passed by this property via the East Gallatin River when returning to St. Louis after their journey through the rugged west. They rejoined Meriwether Lewis at the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers.

What makes this house unique

The home accommodates up to 8 people with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The upper level is dedicated to the master suite with 2 exterior decks viewing the Bridger range of the Rocky Mountains. This suite also features incredible marble floors with a custom built-in jetted tub, an expansive walk-in shower, king size bed, TV and DVD player. The main level features 2 bedrooms (two queens) and 2 bathrooms, one with a large walk in shower and the other with a bathtub. Off the sunken living room is a fourth bedroom, with a king size bed, TV and DVD player.

The retro kitchen is fully stocked with everything needed for vacation cooking. In addition to dishes, utensils and cookware, you’ll find the necessary large appliances and coffee maker, crock pot and blender. A washer and dryer are adjacent to the kitchen for convenient laundry access. The dining room table will seat 8 comfortably with a spectacular view and there is ample outdoor seating as well. The gas barbecue grill is located in the back yard for outdoor cooking.

The home has two separate leisure spaces including a cozy sitting area by the natural gas fireplace and a sunken living room with large screen TV and DVD player, huge picture windows and glass doors looking out to the yard and mountains.
