"Our recent trip to Montana was beautiful. We live in San Diego, and due to time restraints decided to fly into BZN. From there we rented an SUV, not sure what day trips we may decide to do. A quick stop in town at the great Co-Op, then onto a short 20 min drive to Val's place.
I had contacted Val beforehand to ask some final questions before we left SD- she was great with contact/communication. I was able to text her that we had landed and were on our way to her place.
Amazing views and property that she has. It was easy to find. Val met us outside and showed us around. "The Barn" is so beautiful inside/out. Rustic, yet tastefully appointed, and wonderfully clean. She even shared some farm fresh eggs from her neighbors. You can't get fresher! And what a nice touch!
Outside, she introduced us to her horses and cattle, dogs and kitties- (all of which have names). Our son (almost 4), as well as myself and husband were delighted to meet all. After all introductions were made, Val let us explore and get settled in.
Val is such an amazing person and host. She let us all just enjoy all that her property had to offer- from feeding the horses hay in the morning and evening, to playing with the dogs and taking quiet walks down the drive. Almost every meal we sat at the outdoor table to enjoy the beauty all around (I cooked for all- but SO enjoyed it!) We were always surrounded by nature and fresh, clean air.
I thoroughly enjoyed the modern conveniences of a BBQ, gas stove, Keurig machine, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. ALL were used!
After our 8 day stay, it was REALLY hard to leave. I mean REALLY. Thank goodness for iPhones for pictures, because we took thousands. But beyond that, we all have so many wonderful memories to cherish forever. I'm counting down until I can talk my husband into coming back...a year would be too long!
I can't say enough wonderful things about our trip.
I don't have enough characters remaining to explain how AMAZING "The Barn" and Val are :)
P.S.- Check out Bozeman- such a cute town! Everyone is super friendly :)"
