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
This is a truly ecclectic, rustic home that offers amenities and features designed to make guests feel comfortable. The views out the back are unparalleled with wildlife visits being a regular occurance. The natural habitat of the river is home to a variety of birds including bald eagles, red tailed hawks, owls, pheasant, robins and dozens of others. Guests are consistently amazed that they are able to enjoy staying in the "country" while being minutes away from exceptional dining, entertainment, and recreation.

My husband and I stayed here with our four teenage sons. The house was perfect for us. The boys loved the piano, chess, DVDs and the hot tub! We loved the fact that the house was incredibly well-stocked. The view is amazing!
I am a really light sleeper, so the train noise was an issue for me, but the boys didn't even notice! There are ear plugs in the house, and Ambien helps:)
The kitchen is a little tight, but the openess of the family room and dining area made that a virtual non issue.
We were surprised and thrilled that there were so many great restaurants in Bozeman! Saffron Table was fantastic. The boys said it was one of the best meals they have ever had. My husband and I went to Plonk and had great cocktails and food.
Overall, it was a great stay, and the hosts are super responsive and helpful.
Thanks for the great review Desiree - we are so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay at Cherry Creek Guest House. Bozeman is an amazing vacation destination and it sounds like you all took advantage of everything the town and the home has to offer. We look forward to your next visit!

Relaxing, beautiful, and stress releasing weekend!
We had a wonderful time! A nice break for some very busy ladies! Thank you!
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review Olivia. Wonderful to hear that you and your guests were able to unwind and enjoy yourselves. We look forward to your next stay with us!
Michael and Debra
Great home with everything you need.
The house was great, conveniently located to downtown Bozeman and Bridger Bowl for skiing. House was superbly stocked with everything we needed. The only negative is the close proximity to the train which is not light sleeper friendly. Otherwise, a great experience.
Thanks for taking the time to give us a review Derek. Glad you found the home well-stocked and conveniently located for your skiing weekend. Hopefully you also found the complimentary earplugs to offset our nostalgic neighbor. We would enjoy hosting you and your family again - especially if you leave us with another snowman!

Nice cozy home
We stayed at the cheery creek house during a snow storm. So it was quite lovely to just tuck in for the day next to the fireplace. The next day was crystal clear and we watched as a parade of wildlife passed by and hung out in the yard - which our kids loved. The home was clean and kitchen was well appointed with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. The hosts were nice and even shoveled snow for us during our stay. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is because the house is very close to the train tracks and passing trains made it hard for everyone to sleep. The hosts did provide earplugs but we unfortunately didn't see them until we were checking out. Other than the trains - the home was perfect for us!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review Kim. We are happy you enjoyed the home, our furry friends and the amenities. Your family certainly experienced one of our snow-filled windy weekends! We do find the train sound carries further during such conditions. Hope you'll come see us again - the home is wonderful every season. Michael and Debra
If I could give it more than five stars, I would.
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.)
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.

Comfortable, clean, extra amenities
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!
Thanks for your kind comments Dan. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed the holiday weekend at Cherry Creek Guest House and that you had everything needed close at hand. We look forward to your next stay with us!
