The Little Blue House, llc is an 1895 Carriage House converted into Big Timber's first official Tourist Home in June of 2011 and perfect for 1 or 2 couples or a small family. Keeping with its original charm and character, this 'in-town' vacation home offers nightly rentals within walking distance to fine dining, shopping, a movie theater, local bars stocked with locals, followed by a church for everyone!
Big Timber is flanked by the Yellowstone and Boulder Rivers, so access to World Class Fly Fishing is just minutes away. Horseback riding, a float down the river, hiking the Crazies, a visit to the Crazy Mountain Museum, or wild game and bird hunting is so close; you would think it's in our back yard!
The Little Blue House welcomes you to a private courtyard, with a BBQ, outdoor table with seating. Comfort awaits as you walk through the front door. The living room is warm and inviting with a stone wrapped fireplace, cozy sofa, leather chairs, a flat screen satellite tv, and art on the walls.
Passing through the living room, the charming kitchen is 'just like yours'. You will find a full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, stove with oven, a microwave, pots and pans, lots of dishes, oodles of glassware, a blender, mixing bowls and mixer. Expect items like spices, foil, saran wrap, olive oil and more.
Off the kitchen is a small bathroom with a shower. Off the other side of the kitchen is a hallway to the 'Main Floor' bedroom showcasing a mid 1800 4 poster mahogany full sized bed. Simply put, it spells old fashioned charm and romance.
Dashing up the stairs, you enter a private 'Suite', featuring a white tiled bathroom with a garden tub for a soothing soak after a long day. A king size bed adds comfort to your stay upstairs, along with a separate reading area, a flat screen satellite tv, built in dresser and a writing desk. You'll also find The Little Blue House guitar hanging on the wall for your use.
We can offer the home as a 'Whole House' (2 bedrooms) or simply as, 'The Main Floor' (1 bedroom). Whichever option you need, it is your choice, and 'all of it' is completely yours. We do not rent to anyone else during your private stay at The Little Blue House.
We are NOT a B&B. We do not turn down bedding at night, put a chocolate on your pillow, or serve fancy eggs in the morning. We don't even make your bed. The Little Blue House is truly 'your home' away from home. Our goal is to provide guests with a high level of privacy and independence, while still being right next door, available for help and guidance if needed.
Although our Little Blue House has been thoroughly updated, its vintage charm has been retained. We worked very hard creating The Little Blue House. We adore it, and hope you do too!
UPON YOUR ARRIVAL, EXPECT: Coffee, OJ, Eggs, English Muffins, a special treat and a couple of sodas.

We both were born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, in Seattle. After 20 years of marriage and working together as sign makers, we decided to take the leap. We sold everything, looked at 15 towns in the area, and finally found Big Timber...near Yellowstone Park, the rivers, skiing, plein air painting, warm summers and a little guitar playing.
'Life is nothing, without a little adventure'
We chose Big Timber for its central location to mountains, rivers, airports, and, yes, even entertainment. Being the county seat, Big Timber provided enough structure and an economic platform for the giant leap we were making. Driving many of the roads in the surrounding area offers a new insight to our place in America. Striking are 'the waves of grain', 'the purple skies' and vast land. The experience of a 'small town' is unique, and the opportunity to be a part of it has been quite an experience.
Being the First Montana Tourist Home in Big Timber, we can offer a private IN-TOWN home setting on a 'Nightly Basis'. Just like in your own home, you can cook any meal you want, which will save on your pocket book.
The difference between a B&B and a Tourist Home is 1) we don't sleep in the same home as our guests, and
2) we don't fix any meals for you. Instead, we stock your fridge with coffee, oj, eggs, english muffins, etc, so that you don't have to dash out and shop right off the bat!
Many people have told us that staying out of town can be too remote and they miss out on the 'local' events such as the Sweet Grass County Fair, the rodeo, shopping, dining, massage, antiques, galleries and more. 'While the husband's off fishing, the wife can be in-town shopping and having lunch!' (...hey, we didn't say it, but that's what we've been told!)
We are offering the best of both worlds, in-town convenience, with easy access to the great outdoors!
The hot tub's not too bad either! And your hosts? Barb and Jerry - we're outstanding and can help you make your trip to Big Timber and memorable one!
Big Timber is centrally located in South Central Montana within an hours drive to many activities.

The town offers you a choice between fine dining or local montana bars, a cinema, gift shops, real estate offices, medical services, a Carnegie Library, a NRA Rodeo, County Fair and more. Big Timber has big town pride!
