About The Owner

Pouwel and Miriam Gelderloos, are immigrants from the old country The Netherlands. After many adventures and travels they pitched their tent in Paradise Valley. They were fortunate to purchase their own 5 bedroom Paradise Mountain Retreat to raise their 8 children, spoiling them with wildlife, caves, cliffs, canyons, storytelling by campfires accompanied by the music of the hooting owls, cooing doves, twitter of song birds and... the whispering winds.....

Miriam is a former Montessori Teacher, Pouwel is a Builder/Designer/Innovator known for his signature craftsmanship. Come and vist his last project our solar powered and heated greenhouse.The Paradise Mountain Retreat is now available as a vacation rental,to share its countless bounty and blessings with kindred spirits.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Emigrant

The property really choose us. It was a perfect match. we were looking for mountains, wilderness, beauty, lots of space, a comfortable and cozy family home, sheltered garden, dramatic views and all this close to the magic of Yellowstone National Park. It is a central point between Bridger Bowl Ski Resort and Yellowstone Park. And here we are one half hour away from the Yellowstone National Park and an hour away from Bozeman, a bustling university town with its cultural and natural diversities. Not to forget to mention Historic downtown Livingston(half hour away), an eclectic gallery paradise with its eateries, breweries and wine cellars.

Our children grew up with weekly Chico Hot Spring visits ( 8 minutes away), bridge jumping and floating the Yellowstone River.( 5 minutes away) But most of all they lived daily with the wildlife wonders of a mini Yellowstone Park that covered and adjoined our 20+ acres of Paradise Mountain Retreat.

What makes this house unique

The property is situated at a precise midpoint in Paradise valley minutes from premium elk and deer public land hunting grounds and prime fishing on Yellowstone River. 30 Minutes away from North entrance to Yellowstone Park with access to Lamar Valley for prime winter wildlife viewing and cross country skiing among the geysers in Mammoth Hot Springs. The Paradise Mountain Retreat is Heaven for young and old. It always surpasses everyone's expectations. It is ideal for large groups and still cozy and intimate for a intimate getaway and for small families. It is a Real Home away from Home with enough room and space, inside as well as outside, for everyone to be happy. The gourmet cooks enjoy the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, the teenagers can't wait to explore the cliffs and canyons. The younger children spontaneously kick off their shoes, run out unto the inviting lawn exploring the tepee and discovering the dug in trampoline hidden by a a circle of green bushes and then run to the swing set.They will find a family of deer or rabbits somewhere hidden close by. Moms enjoy a quiet moment in the hammock under the trees. I will not forget to mention the views from artistically placed picture windows in the house, the stillness that speaks peacefully day and night, the starry sky adored from a soothing hot tub after a day of exploring The Yellowstone National park. The house is for rent by itself, however, if you need more space we have an attached apartment available as well. Tenters are welcome also. The larger Teepee is also available for adventurous spirits!

Take advantage of the many winter activities around. Great Snowmobiling and Cross Country skiing trails in Mill Creek and Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone Park, a 30 minute drive. Downhill skiing at Bridger Bowl, a 1 hour drive. Downhill sledding or dog sledding in Mill Creek, a 30 minute drive.

Great time and great place to stay

Our party of 8 really enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable as advertised, the views of the mountains are even better then the pictures. The distance to Yellowstone was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here, with two families consisting of four adults and six children ages 4-13. This is a very comfortable house in an absolutely beautiful location. The pictures don't do justice to the view. Plenty of toys, activities and equipment for the children. Particular highlights were the campfire, hiking trails out the back door, and the trampoline for the kids. The kitchen was also very well equipped. Although the hot tub had just broken prior to our arrival, Pouwel got tickets to nearby Chico Hot Springs for us and this was very enjoyable.

We had intended to use the house as a base for day trips to Yellowstone National Park but ended up spending more time at the house!

I think Miriam and Pouwel have created a fantastic vacation spot and we will certainly be back for a longer stay.

Perfect Montana get away!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for my dads 60th birthday get together. We had 5 kids and 10 adults for a weekend stay and had a great time. The property is beautiful, well cared for and comfortable. The owners seem to be constantly improving it and there was more fun stuff to do than we had time for. The kids loved playing outside on the play set and in the yard and on the trampoline and inside with all the fun games and toys. There was nice music and a great kitchen, beautiful views and landscaping. It was just a short drive to Chico Hot springs for a swim too. The owner is super nice and we look forward to staying here again soon ;)

Owner's Response: Thank you Meghan for the happiness, enjoyment and gratitude your family spread around here at the Paradise Mountain Retreat. I am so excited to see you all back in August! You will now still be able to experience the new hot tub and see and taste our newly designed food forest garden having by that time fully bloomed into fruition offering all kinds of delectable fruits, foods and medicinal herbs! Your children will have a blast with the raspberries! The volleyball net will also be in place and you can try your luck as a volleyball team in addition to GrandPa's basket ball team! Make sure this time you come and visit our other dug-in-the hill greenhouse which will be loaded with tomatoes and cucumbers. We will be happy to give you a tour and show you our off-the-grid features you were interested in. See you all back in August! It was and is a pleasure meeting you all again! Miriam and Pouwel.

What a view

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time! Everything was perfect. The view, the beautiful kitchen, loved having a washer and dryer, enjoyed the hiking behind the house , the deer family that visited everyday, our grandson loved all the activites in and around the house, the relaxing hot tub, the short drive to Yellowstone (grizzly, moose, elk, deer, black bear, longhorn, and bison) and all the fun/laughs we had sitting out on the beautiful deck. Oh yes the 2 puppies had a great time also. We thank you for sharing your home with the gang from : Adirondack,NY, Lancaster , Pa., Mt Washington, NH and The Bride and Groom from Bozeman, MT. Would love to recommend this vacation home to friends and family.

Mountain Paradise-Fun for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for our extended family, ages 5 to 70 to gather. What a picturesque landscape to be surrounded by on this unique land. The house is designed thoughtfully and very well appointed; we found everything we needed to cook all of our meals and there is even a convection option for the oven which made for amazing cinnamon rolls. There is something here for everyone to do; hike on the land to see views of the entire valley, meditate in a teepee, soak in the hot tub, jump on the trampoline, play games, volleyball, badminton or just sit on the deck and read. This place was even better than we expected and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this place and hope to go back soon!

This is the Peaceful Place in Pardise Valley

  • 5 of 5
Don't look any further for a great place to surround your family gathering in the peace and love surrounding this fabulous vacation spot. This was our first adventure like this and we plan to repeat it in the near future at this retreat. Miriam, Powell, and Kai are fabulous people and know how to make a home inviting for our group of 11. We loved being so close to the river for fishing and agate hunting and just enjoying the river and mud, hiking. hot tubbing, reading, sunning, star gazing, bird watching, badminton. volleyball, photography, and eating to our hearts content. In fact we enjoyed this home so much that we didn't even make it to Chico Hot Springs or the Park. Spend time here with these
folks and you will enter the real world refreshed, relaxed, and ready to return to this retreat!!!
