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

We are located in a very quiet spot, 3.5 miles south of Livingston, and 50 miles from Yellowstone National Park. We are located very close to the Yellowstone River, with the nearest fishing access a brief 10 minute walk from the cottage . Surrounded by numerous trees and towering mountains, this is a beautiful, quiet place to rest and relax.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Livingston, MT, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
