About the property

2 Bedroom,, One Bath Cottage; Sleeps 4-6

Our cottages are located 4 miles south of I-90 and Livingston, and 49 miles from Yellowstone National Park. Our property is located at the end of a small private and quiet road. This fully furnished cottage is all tongue and groove walls and ceiling; very cozy with large windows. Nestled in the mountainous Yellowstone River Canyon, entrance to the Paradise Valley, with the Yellowstone River a short 10 minute walk away, or a 1/2 mile drive to the closest fishing access. Within a few miles are three world-class fly-fishing spring-creeks. Four miles to the heart of Livingston's busy hub of activity. We have three other cabins on this property that are available for rent to larger groups or family gatherings. A great way for families to each have their own space, yet share a vacation together. Consider # 863032, # 863033, or # 883141

About Mark or Betsy Tomaszewski

We are Mark and Betsy Tomaszewski. We are a home-school family of four, who are active in the outdoors. We love to do anything that gets us out in the woods. We love to hunt, hike, horseback and four-wheel anywhere we can. We are also an active 4-H family, involved in the shooting sports. We are an entrepreneurial family who runs our businesses with all family members. We have recently become VRBO members, and are excited to bring our awesome cottages to the public!

Mark has been a building contractor for the last 28 years, and a home inspector for 13 years. Betsy has had the blessing of being able to raise and educate our two high energy youth. We have lived in the Bozeman/Livingston area for 30+ years and are proud to call this home.

Mark or Betsy Tomaszewski purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mark or Betsy Tomaszewski chose Yellowstone Country

This property is so beautiful and peaceful you will not want to leave! We are tucked into our own small forest of trees, with abundant wildlife and birds overheard every day. You will probably see the resident mule deer or white-tail deer who walk through every day. The Canadian geese and waterfowl are constantly flying overhead. The sunsets are spectacular on the mountains on the east side of the river.

This property is wonderfully unique, in that we are 1/4 mile from the major North-South road going to Yellowstone National Park, yet we are at the end of a small private road that seems to be an oasis. A perfect place to come and relax, yet also be four miles from Livingston.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because it was so beautiful and quiet, yet four miles from town. The Yellowstone River is within our view, and we have about two acres of treed privacy.

We are 40 minutes from Bozeman and 1-1/2 hours to Billings. The Yellowstone River is known for it's world class fly fishing, and within a few miles of us there are numerous spring creek private fishing opportunities.

Peaceful, Private Yellowstone Canyon Cottage, 4 Miles From Livingston
average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Beautiful scenery! Great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This was base camp for our family of 5 (kids ages 6, 10, 12) for 3 nights. It was good access to Yellowstone but also great get-away from Yellowstone congestion each evening. Get to Yellowstone early unless you don't mind crowds!

The cabin is clean, very comfortable, and has all you need for your stay. I even used the washer & dryer one night.

Betsy and family are great hosts! She met us on arrival to make sure we were settled but then offered us privacy. She quickly responded to any questions that we did have. She is centered on hers guests enjoying their stay, Even had fresh ground coffee & eggs from her hens for us!

Yellowstone is awesome but so is Livingston. The cabin feels private but is close to town. We can see & hear the Yellowstone river from the property. On our anniversary we ventured into Livingston downtown and enjoyed live music & local brews. The next night the kids really enjoyed ice cream from an old fashion drive in. I would stay here again and recommend this cabin to others looking for comfortable place to stay close to good amenities and beautiful scenery!

Cozy Cabin & Friendly Owners

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cozy cabin for 4 nights. This trip was a family re-union and we visited the Yellow Stone National park everyday. We were out during the entire day and were only able to come to the cabin to sleep at night. The cabin was cozy and comfortable.

Very relaxing and kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

Betsy was very friendly and accommodating. The cabin was clean and well kept. Everything was provided that we needed other than our own groceries. Perfect place to wake up and enjoy coffee on the covered porch, while our kiddos played in the grass. It was a great location for driving to Yellowstone and there was a nice walk we did by the cabin along the river. We were very happy with our stay and so were our kiddos:) would definitely choose to stay here again!
