  • A Little Piece of Heaven

    "Crabapple Cabin was lovely. It is a small, adorable, cozy cabin nestled among the trees on a fantastic piece of property that the owners, Jackie and Ralph, have lovingly and beautifully landscaped. The Yellowstone River is yours to enjoy exclusively for fishing, rafting and wild life viewing. Each morning there was a family of deer playing in the river just across from the cabin. The hike along the river bank extends for several miles before encountering other property owners. This was a walk that was especially enjoyed by not only myself, but my dog each morning. While the cabin itself is small, it was perfect size for just my dog and I. It would also provide ample room for a couple with small children as there is a a loft with additional beds. Four adults might find it a tight squeeze, especially if there were additional children. But the property is huge! There is a lovely deck that wraps around two sides of the cabin and part of it is covered. I sat under the covered deck during a quite significant thunderstorm and enjoyed watching the rain! The cabin provides access to the northern entrance to Yellowstone, which I visited while I was staying at the cabin once and again later when I was staying in Bozeman. Access from the cabin was better and quicker through the northern entrance into Yellowstone! There is a very nice restaurant in Chico Hot Springs (the food smelled wonderful when I drove by), but I did not stop to eat. The cabin was built in 1939, and as our family has a cabin that was built in the 1920's; staying there brought back many fond childhood memories. Jackie and Ralph have made many improvements and the property is well maintained, but expect a cabin and not a newly constructed house. The Jerla's extend warm hospitality to their guests and I enjoyed the flowers and homemade wine. Jackie and I share a love of reading, so we bonded over animals, good reads and a variety of other subjects. As animal lovers, we had a bit of entertainment watching her cat, Elmo, tease my dog, Lillybeth each day. I simply cannot wait to return and plan to do so both in the winter and next summer. I would love to say something negative so that no one would stay there. (I could just move in permanently as a long term renter) But that would be very unfair to two wonderful people that I like and very untrue about a place I fell in love with! I hope that you find your visit to Crabapple Cabin in Paradise Valley as special as I did!"

  • Wonderful Spot to Stay

    "We really enjoyed our night. Even though the hobby farm is located close to the highway, we never even knew it. The cabin is spacious and has everything you would need for a comfortable stay and to prepare your own meals. Sasha and her husband are great hosts and enjoyed getting to meet them. We used this rental a place to stay on our way to Yellowstone. Prefect spot. About 20 minutes down the road on the way to Yellowstone NP there is a great little bakery and coffee shop for breakfast."

  • Simply outstanding. Even better than we ever imagined.

    "Gigi & Ian were incredible hosts. The guest house was exactly as advertised, it was better than advertised. Comfortable, super-clean, well furnished. We woke up each morning, walked just a couple of blocks to the Sacagawea Park & the Yellowstone River. Then, just a few blocks walk, we were in downtown Livingston and locating one of the restaurants they recommended for breakfast. We were there for The Hoot, and Gigi made sure we had portable chairs to take to the concert, they had 2 bikes for us to use, too. Wifi at the house worked well, however, it was nice to be "unplugged" for the week! The neighborhood is gorgeous, historic homes, charming and unique. Neighbors and people in town were as friendly as Gigi & Ian. Spent a lazy few hours, one afternoon, on the hammock under the aspen trees. The terrace off the main bedroom was great for star gazing at night. Incredible sky, perfect weather and wonderful lodging. I can't say enough about how comfortable and enjoyable this guest home made our trip. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! We will be back next year, for sure! And, I know I've likely found a few more occupants for next spring and summer, I've been spreading the word about the home and the town on Livingston. Thank you, Denise & Randal - Blue Springs MO (Kansas City MO Suburb)"

  • Best Vacation Ever

    "Our family of 5 called Chico Peak home for 6 nights. It was very difficult to leave this peaceful retreat. After long days in Yellowstone, we were always happy to return to our house under the mountain. The view was breathtaking. I could have stayed in the home without any other adventures and been completely content. In addition to the mountain, we watched elk and enjoyed bird watching from the back patio. The home is situated on a lot of property so you will not have another rental or another home close to you. It is extremely private (which we loved). We journeyed almost everyday to the park which was about a 40 minute drive of even more beautiful scenery. The drive never got old as we enjoyed looking for wildlife and watching the Yellowstone River wind through the hills. This rental is everything I would expect and hope for with a family vacation. I would recommend to the rental management company adding general guidelines for the sauna. As they replied promptly to all our questions and it is easy to turn on, we didn't know how much water to add to get it started or what temperature is best to start with. We tweaked the temperature as we learned, but without general guidelines it was trial and error at first. The sauna was amazing after long hikes and my husband called it "the miracle cure." There is a great general store right down the road in Emigrant which we used everyday to stock the cooler. My husband also enjoyed fishing close to home and the angler store in Emigrant was really cool. We would recommend this property to all our family and friends and plan to do so as some plan to visit next year after hearing about our stay."
