Livingston Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, up to 4

Contact us for weekly and monthly rates with dates and number in party and if you will be bringing pets. (We are looking for longer rental terms for October through May. Let us know if you're interested.)

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.

About juliann jones

I am a working artist, website: http://planetjuliannjones.com. My husband and I purchased this house, completed gutted it and rebuilt in 2006-07. all new everything. I hear it is described as an 'artsy place'.

juliann jones purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why juliann jones chose Livingston

great place to come to either get away from it all or for outdoor adventures. great for outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers. works equally well for artists and writers as sanctuary.

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!)

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
The house is spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Livingston was filled with exciting events during our stay that we didn't have to leave town at all. The Base Camp Bungalow is a short walk to the rodeo ground fair ( a must see event), many excellent restaurants and shops on Park & Main Street. I love the local Livingston spirit while staying at this house.

Different but adequate

  • 3 of 5
We wanted a reasonably priced stay close to Yellowstone. This house fit the first requirement but not the last. Some of the other reviews we read before we decided on this place made the distance from Yellowstone sound like no big deal. Let me tell you the 52 miles (@ 1hour) to the north entrance of the park is a real drag to drive there and back for 4 days. The house itself was uniquiely decorated with lots of room inside. The kitchen and bathrooms were grungy, in need of a good scrubbing, not just a once over with Clorox II wipes. The location, on the far end of town, was not within walking distance to the business section and restaurants of Livingston. It was quiet, except for a barking dog and trains whistling through the night. All in all it was adequate and beat staying in a hotel room.

Back again!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this treasure last year with some girlfriends and loved it so much I was able to convince my husband to come back this year. I was a bit worried he might not love it as I did, but he was perfectly happy! He wanted to do some fishing and it's just a short 10 minute walk to the Yellowstone from Basecamp. The owners were great about giving us local info and we took an amazing drive to another river, the East Boulder, perfect for fishing. This visit was a great romantic getaway for just the 2 of us, although with 2 bedrooms, a blow up bed, comfortable couch and 2 full baths, many more can be accommodated. We had lovely mornings sipping coffee on the porch, adventurous days hiking and visiting the sites (Yellowstone Park is an easy under an hour drive), and delicious dinners in town. Please try the 2nd Street Bistro if you come to Livingston. The Sport is a more casual dining establishment, Pinky's Cafe is great for lunch and the Other Cafe has terrific breakfasts. The accommodations are lovely, clean and comfortable, and having laundry on site is perfect if you are planning some outdoor activities. I can't say enough good things about this find!

Live like a local

  • 4 of 5
Base Camp Bungalow provides an experience to live like a local. My husband and I enjoyed 4 wonderful weeks with this home serving as our base for hiking, fly fishing and photography in the Absoroka Mountains and Yellowstone Park. The home description and pictures provided an accurate portrayal of the property. Our host, Juliann, was warm, welcoming and made sure all our needs were met. The home was clean, well maintained and charming with original artwork by Juliann! The location is fabulous...close to town, the Shane Arts Center, a microbrewery just a few blocks away and a wonderful gateway to Yellowstone. We enjoyed day trips fly fishing on the Yellowstone, West Boulder, Gallatin and Stillwater rivers and the many creeks in Yellowstone Park. Many hiking trails are nearby providing amazing photography opportunities. Livingston is bustling in July with festivals, farmers markets, live bands, art gallery walks and performing arts. Base Camp Bungalow feels like home at the end of each busy day and we can't wait to return.

What a cozy home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this great house for my nieces and their husbands. They were coming to town for their father's funeral and this house made all of the heart ache easier to bear. The house was spacious enough for us to gather for family meals, BBQ,s and getting together. The neighborhood is quiet and not far from downtown or the river. We had one little four legged pupper that stayed at the house with his humans and the yard had no escape routes and Linc was very comfortable. My family is planning a reunion for next summer ant this house is going to be rented by us again...for sure. The house is comfortable, spacious and so cozy. Everything we needed to cook for the family was available and the kitchen was easy to maneuver in. I would definitely suggest staying at this great house! The owners are pretty awesome too!!

So impressed nothing but good things to say.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just left this rental today and couldn't wait to write a review. This was such a great experience. The owner was friendly and helpful but not overbearing. The house was better that described, and the location was amazing. Downtown Livingston is walking distance and Yellowstone is a little over in hour. If you are worried that this is too far from the park, don't be. It's not that long a drive and the road from the house to the park is unbelievable, almost as beautiful as the park itself. We considered staying in west Yellowstone but are so glad that we didn't. It is for tourists. Livingston is gorgeous, quiet but with stuff to do. We brought our dogs and the owner was great about it. They loved the yard! The kitchen was well stocked and the bathrooms were nice. My husband and I work in hotels and were not used to home rentals but this was a great vacation memory. I would definitely stay here again (can't wait!) and would recommend it to anyone going to Yellowstone.

Yellowstone National Park is 50 miles south of Livingston. The park is a must see any time of year. The absolute best months to go are not June, July and August because the park is crowded. The off months are fabulous. Livingston is situated 50 miles from the only door of Yellowstone that is open all year. Winter travel in Yellowstone is magical. You ride special snow coaches in to Old Faithful area. Other attractions are of course the Yellowstone River itself which is less than one mile from this cottage. The nearest boat access also. There is an off leash dog park just 3 blocks away. Livingston is surrounded by 3 mountain ranges, Absarokees, the Bridgers and the Crazy Mountain Range. All of these have ample opportunity for hiking, etc. Scenic drives are great too. Livingston is a town of about 7000. If you feel you need a bustling retail center Bozeman is only 25 minutes away, is the home of Montanan State University and is about 40,000 people.
