Rivers to Peaks vacation rental is located just 12 miles from Bozeman, Montana, in the historic and quaint sawmill town of Gallatin Gateway, which is so named for its accessibility to the West entrance of Yellowstone National Park. It is also the entrance to the beautiful Gallatin Canyon, along which the Gallatin River winds its way spectacularly toward Big Sky and Yellowstone Park.
Our spacious guest house sits on over 32 acres of grazing meadows just 12 miles southwest of both the Yellowstone Bozeman International - Gallatin Field Airport and fun-filled Bozeman (home of Montana State University), with its boutiques, multiplex cinema, museums, symphony, rodeos, ballet, opera, live theater, cultural center, art galleries, and great casual and upscale restaurants. It also boasts the shops you're used to shopping at, and large grocery stores.
In August every year, Bozeman goes all out for its Sweet Pea Festival. People come from all over to enjoy the artists' exhibits, food kiosks, Shakespeare in the Park, live music and dance, sweet pea growing and poster competitions, hands-on crafts area, activities and entertainment for the children, and much more.
In winter, the annual community Christmas Stroll enchants everyone, complete with outdoor food booths, street and indoor entertainment and exhibits, and Santa on his sleigh, accompanied by the children, lighting the Christmas lights along Main Street, then being available for photos in the historic Baxter Hotel on Main Street.
Bozeman is the home of Montana State University, where an authentic Pow Wow takes place every Spring, complete with parade and rodeo. It also hosts football and basketball games, and many other cultural and educational events. Have a look at the AllBozeman website.
But YOU'LL spend your evenings and sleep in the quiet countryside, surrounded by cattle and horses, and in the company of a wide array of wildlife: elk, deer, moose, eagles, hawks, coyotes, foxes, sand-billed cranes, osprey, pheasants, quail, beaver, rabbits, prairie dogs, and lots more.
You'll be treated to mesmerizing sunsets and sunrises from both the living room and kitchen, and feast your eyes on the undulating foothills, the Spanish Peaks and Bridger Range, and the Gallatin National Forest.
There's plenty of room for parking up to three vehicles and one recreational vehicle just outside the front door.
If fly fishing is on your agenda, cast for blue ribbon trout, white water raft on the Gallatin, or float on the Madison, Missouri or Yellowstone Rivers by day (we have a great double mattress for this, or you can rent inner tubes nearby), or visit the famous geyser, Old Faithful, in Yellowstone National Park, just 90 minutes away. Then come home to a meal you've time-baked in the oven or crock pot.
After dinner, walk a few yards into the woods across our country road and fish the Gallatin River for prize trout from your choice of 2 private accesses. Or drive two minutes along the river to one of three public fishing bridges to laze on the beach, fish, or take a dip.
For world-class nordic or cross-country skiing, you're equidistant from Big Sky, Moonlight Basin, Bridger Bowl, Lone Peak Mountain, and Bohart Ranch ski resorts, or you can stay home and cross-country ski, snowshoe, or walk our meadows or road.
