We are walking distance to fishing in the Yellowstone. Imagine walking out the front door and seeing Emigrant Peak at 11,000 across the street. Our vacation retreat is located in the town of Emigrant, MT in Paradise Valley, MT. We are 55 minutes from the Bozeman airport. We are 30 minutes from the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. We have spectacular mountain views and three acres of common ground. We are minutes away from Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa where you can enjoy the hot springs pools, fine dining, and entertainment. Their number is 1-800-HOT-WADA. We are 20 minutes from Livingston with gourmet restaurants, community theatres, movie theatres, art galleries and unique shops.

Things to Do: Inside of Yellowstone, between Mammoth Hot Springs and Gardiner, Montana, soak in the Boiling River (hot water from Mammoth) and the Gardiner River. This is a great hike and then a refreshing experience. Bring your water shoes to enjoy this activity year round.

Rudy and I live in Maryland. Rudy is a licensed public insurance adjustor and I am a speech/language pathologist at a middle and high school. Rudy is originally from VA and I am originally from MI. We have both lived in 5 different states.

We love to travel, especially in the west, and enjoy visiting our grandsons in Oregon.

We are committed to providing a rental experience that serves our guests and makes their trip as comfortable as possible.

Rudy and Lisa Rudacil purchased this townhome in 2005

Rudy and I had spent 3 summers vacationing in Montana (Glacier National Park and in Yellowstone). On a trip to Yellowstone in 2005, we were staying in Paradise Valley and watching the townhouses, at Avalon Villas, being built. We were so taken with the breath taking views, the wildlife and Emigrant, that we decided that we wanted to own our own small piece of Montana. Two months later we called the developer and asked her if any of the townhouses were available. There were two left. We chose an end unit, thinking that we would have more light and views of the Big Sky. This all took place while driving on the Washington, DC Beltway. When I turned to my husband to ask him if we he thought that we had made the right decision, he said, 'look out the window.' In the lane next to our vehicle, was a semi-truck from Billings, Montana. I guess that was our sign.

Our Amazing Time in Paradise Valley

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
How could I live this long without realizing how beautiful Montana is, especially Paradise Valley where the Yellowstone River flows? I had the most wonderful vacation staying in Lisa and Rudy's townhouse (in an extremely small development) which is just across the road from the Yellowstone River. The location is perfect: A 30 minute drive to Yellowstone Park, A 30 minute drive to Livingston (where there are excellent restaurants), views of mountains and plains, in the middle of breathtaking countryside. Day trips Into Yellowstone Park are easy; we saw elk, bison, a bear, mountain goats, and a red-tail hawk. In the valley we saw swans, an osprey nest with chicks, rabbits, many horses, cattle, geese, and on the Bear Tooth Highway, free-range cows.

Chico Hot Springs resort is 3 miles away, offering a gourmet restaurant, bar, swimming or sitting in pools fed by natural thermal springs, a fantastic riding stable offering trail rides of 1 to 3 hours and more. (This horse wrangler and staff are the best run outfit I have ever encountered with tons of support and encouragement for novice riders, including children.)

This house is very clean and comfortable. Lisa and Rudy are excellent, well-organized hosts. I highly recommend a vacation in Paradise Valley and staying at this house. It is an excellent value!

Owner's Response: Ermon, we so appreciate your catching the "Montana Fever" and especially when you were staying at our townhome. We were more than happy to guide you through some of the most beautiful places in the US! Thank you again for being our guests.

Wonderful spot for a family vacation

We had such a wonderful time in Lisa and Rudy's townhome. The location was perfect with a quick drive to Yellowstone as well as Bozeman and Livingston which are great Montana towns that are well worth exploring. The Rocky Mountain Museum is well worth the visit with the best dinosaur exhibit I have ever seen.

The home is cozy and clean with everything you might need and then some. We were thrilled with the views out every window and the beds were very comfortable. The tour books were a great extra bonus! Our family of 5 had plenty of room to relax at the end of our busy days.

On the drive to Yellowstone the first day we saw a whole herd of wild sheep grazing along the roadside. Wildlife viewing in Yellowstone was fantastic! We saw 5 Grizzly Bears including a Sow and her three cubs. The hiking book led us to some wonderful spots with good hikes and fishing for our son.

I would highly recommend this home for almost any type of vacation. Lisa was full of helpful tips and even let us add an extra day at the last minute. We had an amazing time and would love to go back!
Owner's Response: We are so glad that your family had such a wonderful trip and it was our pleasure helping you enjoy your stay with us! Rudy loves writing his guide books each summer to tell our guests where we have been and about the beautiful spots we've seen each year!

It was great that we were able to extend your trip without any conflicts. At this time of year, we can be quite flexible.

Thank you for your emails during your stay. We love hearing about our guest's trips!

Thank you again for being our guests.
Lisa and Rudy

Very comfortable and well equipped

The unit was clean and well equipped. Having a washer and dryer was great. It was a pretty warm week, so the portable A/C units in the two bedrooms was really appreciated.

Yellowstone is about 30-40 minutes away, but getting anywhere in the park takes quite a bit more time. Livingstone is pretty close, and Bozeman is a short distance down the interstate.

Actually sat on the back patio one evening watching a doe and fawn in the back yard (about 30 feet away).

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • Stayed: Jun 2013
The property was in an excellent location! We had beautiful views and it was far away from the bustle of Yellowstone that we enjoyed the serenity.The unit was spacious and well stocked as well as very clean.
However it was still close enough to the park to explore new things everyday. We had a blast ziplining with the Montana Whitewater Company in Gardiner.

We spent many of our days in Yellowstone, but we also found a few hikes in the Emigrant area. Our favorite hike was on Tom Miner road through on the Petrified Forest Trail.

This was a wonderful place to stay!
Owner's Response: Dear Becky,
Wow your family got to enjoy new things. It sounds like you all had a great trip. We are really pleased that you ejoyed your stay at our vacation home in Emigrant. The Paradise Valley is the perfect distance from Yellowstone.

Best,
Lisa and Rudy

We would stay at this townhome again, or at any property rental owned by the same owners. Everything we might have needed was available, it was clean, lovely furnishings, nice sheets & towels, beautiful accommodations and even better than we had hoped. The owners were kind and wonderful to deal with and the entire experience was perfect. Located about 30 minutes from North entrance to Yellowstone, a nice drive each day and the beauty of the area is indescribable. Rent without hesitation!
