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 with a full sized bed.
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.

Thanks for making Christmas 2012 so special. The LBH was everything we imagined and more. Fully stocked a perfectly decorated for Christmas right down to the freshly cut tree.
You were great hosts...thank you
Owners Note: This was a lovely family of 4 visiting their parents/grandparents for the Christmas Holidays. The absolute BEST thing about their visit, was a gift to us from their daughter. She made a darling gingerbread Little Blue House. We love it. We posted it on our vrbo site and it is carefully packed away for next year! Thank you so much!
My husband and I live north of Big Timber in the Melville community, which is a ranching community where I was raised. We own and operate a guest ranch there (Sweet Grass Ranch) in the Crazy Mountains and also work in Big Timber. Sweet Grass County is a wonderful place to call home.
We love the charm and sense of history in the Little Blue House. The prior owners took such care to lovingly restore the property and when they decided to sell, we jumped at the chance to purchase the Little Blue House. Decades ago, relatives owned the Little Blue House so it has family history as well as unique character.
