This bungalow is in Livingston Montana, about 50 miles from the north door of Yellowstone National Park. The north door of the park is the only door that is open all year. The state hwy that leads from Livingston to Yellowstone National Park is scenic but a easy drive any time of year. Livingston is on I90, 20 some miles from Bozeman, home of Montana State University. Livingston has the population of about 7,000, Bozeman is about 40,000.
The house is less than a mile to the nearest Yellowstone River boat ramp, golf course and off leash dog park. The cottage is pet friendly.There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with 2 twins. 2 full bathrooms. Modest house in a modest neighborhood. Very private backyard with deck and gas grill. It is in a family type neighborhood. The house is chocked full of warm character with wood floors, some original to the house, original board ceilings in kitchen and main bedroom., wonderful artistic flair in the palette and character. Original art work abundant on walls. We, as owner/operators try to run the house in the most sustainable,green way possible. Bamboo towels, dishes, cotton bedding, cleaning with eco friendly cleansers, etc. except where regulation and safety require germ killing,etc. Do not expect a highly watered groomed lawn. We only water plants and the plants that we have added are native. In dry years the lawn will also be dry. We do not use chemicals on the lawn either.
Some guests have reminded of the fabulous star gazing to be had right from the deck in the very private backyard. Sometimes there may even be some northern lights. They are not the crazy spectacular ones that folks further north see, but they can be very entertaining nonetheless.
Livingston is the most beautiful town in Montana. Stunning view down Main Street business district of the mountain range above. Lots of night spots.Livingston has several independently owned restaurants, several great independently owned breakfast spots, 2 live theaters, 1 first run movie theater and about a dozen art galleries.

What makes this bungalow unique
very private back yard, pet friendly with pet sitting available for a fee- less than one mile from nearest Yellowstone River access with river shuttle service available for a fee- less than one mile to golf range and golf course. Livingston is a fabulous little town with wonderful home town village feel. Night spots and breakfast spots are numerous. Plenty of outdoor guide services available for those who want to fly fish or hike and would like help. Also great rafting and floating.
as far as the home itself, it is very clean with wood floors every where, very cute homey atmosphere with a back deck and private back yard. we practice sustainable efforts with bamboo towels, cotton sheets, down comforters,etc. You will not find a highly groomed lawn. What you will find is native plants and if the year is dry then the lawn is too. We have two sheep who help us keep our 10 lots cleaned up. They don't actually mow at this guest house though.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Easily five stars, if what you're looking for is for laid-back elegance, comfort, privacy, and easy access to beautiful Montana. There's plenty of room: the kitchen, dining room, and living room are all open and ready for family and friends to gather, laugh, cook, and eat. It's clean and full of light, with beautiful artwork by one of the owners herself. The back yard is private, with a gas grill, table, plenty of chairs, and a lovely view of the stars at night. My bed was cozy and warm. An easy walk takes you to the river and the "Silent Giant," and downtown Livingston is close by (Yellowstone too, though there's lots of beauty to be found all around). I went with some dear friends, but I often travel alone, and it's a great "home" for a solo traveler too. That openness doesn't make it feel empty if you're by yourself, and the privacy - especially out on the back deck - is just what I look for when traveling alone.
P.S. The bathrooms were also great. When I took my first shower back at home, I actually missed the one at the Bungalow! (a first!)
