There is plenty of parking and very little traffic at the end of Bozeman's quiet and eclectic North Montana Avenue. The Cabin has a nice side yard to the south and it sits on a large corner lot. Walking distance to downtown, several parks, the library, several great craft breweries, delicious dining options, a couple of coffee shops and the free bus to Bridger Bowl, the Cabin is well situated.
It is also well appointed with all new high efficiency appliances including a washer and electric steam dryer, refrigerator with ice-maker, garbage disposal, dish washer, microwave, gas range, range hood and vacuum. The kitchen is fully stocked with kitchenware and service ware for eight or more. There is a small growler collection for you to use to fill up at the local breweries. The cabin features partial light top-down bottom-up blinds in the kitchen and living spaces and full dark-down bottom-up blinds in the sleeping rooms and office.
The cabin offers new queen size beds in each of the three bedrooms. Each bedroom has a chair, closet, nightstand(s), lamp(s), alarm clock, luggage stands, coat hangers and dresser. The master bedroom also offers an iron and ironing board.

About Reno Walsh
My wife and I have lived in Bozeman, Montana for over twenty-two years. My wife is from Montana and I am from the midwest originally. We both moved to Bozeman to play in the mountains and make a life for ourselves in a place we want to live to rest of our lives. We are outdoor enthusiasts. We ski and snowboard as much as we can in the winter and mountain bike, trail run, fly fish, raft, canoe and garden as much as we can in the summer. We live next door to the Cabin On Montana just across the alley to the west. We both work full time here in Bozeman. I work from home which allows me some flexibility to meet with our guests and to offer my assistance when needed. We are proud parents and active community members. We look forward to meeting you at the Cabin On Montana and hop to have a chance to share our enthusiasm for the place we call home with you.
Reno Walsh purchased this House in 2012
Why Reno Walsh chose Bozeman
Three years ago an old man came over to borrow a drill. When he brought it back, I offered him a glass of lemonade and we sat on an old Bridger Lift Chair on our deck and started to talk. After some time passed the man said, "I'm getting older and don't want to have to take care of that place next door any longer. You and your wife should buy it." I assured him we could not afford it. He insisted. My wife and I then scraped together all of our savings and made him an offer and suggested a contract for deed. He and his wife accepted. My wife and I had our first child shortly after that. Then my parents started to visit more often. They were staying in vacation rentals because our home is too small. That is when we decided to see if we could get a permit to operate a vacation rental and a loan to renovate the cabin so that my parents could stay in whenever they wanted to visit and we could rent it out otherwise to help us cover the significant costs of owning a home in Bozeman. We got the permit. We got the loan. We renovated. My parents are staying there when they visit. Now we just need you to come and stay at the Cabin On Montana.
What makes this House unique
The Cabin On Montana is the sixth permitted vacation rental in Bozeman's downtown R2 zoning district. We presented our case to the city commission explaining why the property would be a great representation of Bozeman and assured them that we could jump through their hoops. The city required us to pay a significant fee to obtain a permit. They required us to write a narrative, to speak to the commission multiple times, to bring the cabin up to code, have the cabin inspected by the fire department, the health department, the engineering department and the planning department. They required a sign. They required insurance and a business license. We asked our thee approval of the property owners that live in the vicinity and everyone agreed that the cabin adds value and appeal to the neighborhood and encouraged us to move forward. Then we obtained a business license and called our business a Cabin On Montana. In the end, the cabin is permitted, it is insured, it is up to code, the neighbors are welcoming and it's a pretty nice place to stay.

We had a fabulous time celebrating our daughter's graduation from MSU. The house was wonderful! Super place, great location and they even allowed us to have a grad party!
Perfect vacation spot
My family, including my husband, my kids, my brother and sister and I stayed at the cabin on Montana during our kids spring break vacation and I can not rave about this place, and the owners enough. A roomy, clean and quaint bungalow with more than sufficient housewares and personal supplies to make our stay extremely comfortable. We had a issue with the dishwasher midweek and the owner was over within hours to fix it so it was not to disturb our stay. Just a few blocks from the beautiful down town area. Great neighborhood. I will keep this cabin mind for you future visits to Bozeman. Thank you!

Thanks Jim - Come back anytime!
Reno was an amazing host. He brought cribs and highchairs for our kids, helped us find sitters, helped us find a realtor. The place is great. Very clean, great linens and towels. Well equiped kitchen. Really close to downtown and on the way to Bridger. Couldn't have been better. I would give 6 stars if I could. Thanks for a great weekend.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cabin On Montana and look forward to seeing you around town more often once you move in!
Let It Snow,

Perfect long weekend getaway!
We visited Bozeman to visit the MSU campus with our son. The house is super clean, very updated and had all the little niceties that you find in a fancy hotel. Everything was provided for us from delicious coffee to shower products.
We walked from the cabin to downtown and to the campus and everything was very easily accessible.
We love this house and plan on making this our home away from home when we visit our son in college for the next 4 years!
Bozeman is a gateway city to Yellowstone National Park. Bozeman is surrounded by some of the world's best fly fishing, rafting, hiking, skiing and snowboarding.
