  • 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!"

  • Fishing Family

    "We enjoyed our stay at the charming Elliott House. We appreciated the personal touches and the homey feel. I did discover, though, that I am a fan of modern conveniences. Showering proved to be a bit of a challenge in the period-correct tub (although I admit the bathroom decor was very cute!); wrestling with the curtain was comical. For couples traveling together, the second bedroom didn't bode well for husband and wife to sleep together: no big deal--I baled and slept in "the kids' room" on the bottom bunk, and slept just fine! It was great to have everything within walking distance. However, living in Michigan as I do, it was a bummer that all the shops closed up at 5 as we never got off from any rivers we fished until later. (Which has NOTHING to do with the quality of the Elliott house, but something to keep in mind as a traveler). All things considered, I would certainly recommend staying at the Elliott House if the Livingston/Gardner/Bozeman area is your destination. No farther than 45 mins from ANYTHING you'd care to experience in Momtana's fishing Mecca. Oh! And nice fish on your fb page! Congratulations!"

  • More than we expected!

    "I have to say this home was more than I expected. The pictures couldn't accurately depict the coziness of the home with its rustic decor, nor could they accurately describe the view from the house. I noticed at least one review commented on the trains, and there are quite a few. We found them quite fascinating though. It was quite picturesque to see the trains coming around the hill with the mountains in the background. We didn't have any trouble with them keeping us up at night. To us, they were a neat addition. The pool was a huge enjoyment. It is large and there are plenty of toys, etc to use. We drove to Yellowstone most days and used the pool in the evening. The house is located close to an hour from Yellowstone. With the park being large itself, there was a lot more driving than I had expected. However, the distance was stated in the description, so it was my own lack of foresight. I must say that the drive was an amazingly beautiful one though, and we made the best of it and enjoyed it! And the setting the house is located in is a most peaceful one! Internet/cell phone usage was a bit limited, but we could still find places in the house where we could get through, such as the deck off the kitchen. To us, this was a plus. It was nice to unplug from life for awhile and just enjoy one another. There were 10 of us, and we fit quite comfortably in the house without feeling crowded. Livingston was a nice sized town with plenty of grocery & supply options to help us get settled for our stay. It was only about 5 minutes from the house. All in all, I'd highly recommend this home. It was everything we had hoped for and more. It is a part of some very special memories that our family made on our trip, and we won't soon forget it!"

  • Early April 2016

    "Spring Creek fishing with 3 friends had us at the Shields River Hideaway. The house is attractive, comfortable, and the most thoroughly outfitted place I have ever stayed. Victoria is a very pleasant host. Most ideal for two couples or a family. Secluded, 10 minutes to Livingston, beautiful rangeland and snow capped mountains all around. Expect to be back again next year, and the 5 stars are fully deserved."
