THE WATERMAN HOUSE IN HISTORIC DOWNTOWN BOZEMAN

Bozeman House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + one convertible bed (futon), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a completely restored 1890s vintage historic home originally built by Bozeman pioneer Christopher Waterman. The home has wood floors, oriental carpets, 9-10 foot ceilings, and horse hair plaster throughout. It has been been completely restored and remodeled over the past few years. The home is outfitted with Montana made Mission style furniture. There is a hot tub and unique outdoor concrete dining area.

The home was located on Main Street in Bozeman until the 1960s when it was rescued from destruction by Ann and Roger Stradley who bought it and moved it several blocks to its current location. We purchased it in 2003 and remodeled the whole place, new kitchen, two new baths, and refinished all the original wood floors.

The home was once owned by the justice of the peace and several hundred Montanans were married in what is now the living room.

Home has exquisite views of the Bridger Mountains, the Gallatin Range, and the Spanish Peaks.

The Waterman House is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from MSU campus and all the experiences of downtown Bozeman.

**If you need additional space, the M Carriage house, adjacent to this property is available. See vrbo rental #346216 for more details on the M Carriage House**

You must be 25 years or older to rent this home.

NOTE: there is a basement apartment in this house, with outside separate entrance that is not available for rental. The owner reserves this space for his personal use.

Keywords: Historic Home, Classic 1890s Design

My wife and I a part time residents of Bozeman, and love the place. The town and people are rare and fine folk. I am a retired econ prof from SC, and I work part time at an environmental think tank in Montana. We have family ties in Montana and have lived and loved the place for a long time.

We have listed a few of our favorites on the map, and included a complete visitors guide (food, attractions, activities, walking tours, day adventures, shopping, etc.) in the house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Bozeman is a classic American place with unique quality of life. The people, the mountains, the climate, make Bozeman one of the finest places on earth.

Our home is just a couple blocks and easy walk from MSU campus, several nice large city parks, downtown Bozeman, and any number of great restaurants and food stores. We have listed a few of our favorites on the map, and included a complete visitors guide (food, attractions, activities, walking tours, day adventures, shopping, etc.) in the house.

Wonderful Stay in Bozeman

I rented this home for 11 family members traveling to Bozeman for my daughter's graduation from MSU. Since we live only hours away from Bozeman, I had driven by this home while visiting my daughter. The house was much larger than I had expected from the online photos and seeing it from the outside. There was ample space for each family member, including three children. There is a futon but the two older children chose to sleep on the floor in their sleeping bags. We brought a playpen for the baby. The kitchen had almost everything we needed to prepare for a small graduation party we held in the backyard. The historic home is beautiful with comfortable beds and nice bedding. Being an old home, the plumbing and floors can be a bit noisy but this also adds to its character and charm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Waterman House.

Possibly the best place to stay in all of Bozeman. Beautiful, comfortable, historic house in a great neighborhood. 3 bedrooms 1 bath upstairs, 1 bedroom 1 bath downstairs. Walking distance to the Bozeman Food Coop and Montana State University. Bobby, the owner, is very cordial. My children loved the front porch with rocking chairs and the back yard. A great jumping off point for exploring Yellowstone National Park, downtown Bozeman, the Gallatin National Forest, and more.

Memories of a Lifetime

My now husband and I lived in this house for almost two years, and fell in love with the house, the owner and each other here. There are plenty of places to say in Bozeman, but there's something magical about staying in a home where early settlers were married, and where new generations continue to make lasting memories. I don't know if casual "modern-historic" is too much of an oxymoron, but it's really the only way to describe the Waterman house. It's posh, but you don't have to leave your boots at the door. My husband, two dogs and came to Bozeman and never left.
