BEAUTIFUL HOME ON 20 ACRES - SPECTACULAR VIEWS. STRAIGHT DRIVE TO YELLOWSTONE!

Livingston House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sofa-Bed + Additional beds: Sleeps 8

'Whispering Acres' is a privately owned large, beautiful, comfortable 3 Bdr, 3 Bath home with a private duck pond, on a 20 acre open prairie with unobstructed mountain views. The home is not managed by an agency. I simply make it available myself.

Yellowstone Ntl Park and Chico Hot Springs are a straight 55 mn. drive on U.S. 89 and the Yellowstone River is a few miles away from the house, flowing down from gorgeous Paradise Valley.

Since a one-day visit to the Park is ample enough to see everything, you're better off in Livingston for the rest of your vacation.

The closest fly-fishing spot is 4 miles from the house on famed Yellowstone River. Just 2 miles away is an Albertson's supermarket. 4 miles away is historic, vibrant downtown Livingston with its timeless Western feel and look.

The most extraordinary features of 'Whispering Acres' are the magical silence of its surroundings, the millions of stars dotting Montana's Big Sky and the wonderful, happy, calm, patient and engaging local residents.

For more details, see: www.whispering-acres.net

Come stay with us a 'Whispering Acres': Here is an incredibly comfortable 3-bedroom (1 king, 2 queens, a queen sofa bed and additional twin beds in the house when needed) 3-bathroom home with 2 huge living rooms (upstairs and downstairs) in legendary Livingston, south central Montana (fly-fishing capital of the U.S.)

This home is extraordinary for being in a remote area, yet with urban conveniences. It sits on 20 acres, with its own private pond, and is only 1 mile from an Albertson's supermarket and 4 miles from historic downtown Livingston. It is also 4 miles from the closest fly-fishing point on the famed Yellowstone River.

Access is easy. Interstate I-90 is easily accessible and you are 28 miles from Bozeman Gallatin Field's (BZN) national airport, or a two hour drive from Billings (BIL) airport.

The home is privately owned and not managed by an agency!

For more details, see: www.whispering-acres.net/

'Whispering Acres' amenities: Upstairs in the house, is a vast living room with huge double-pane windows allowing spectacular views from the 'Absaroka Mountains' to the 'Crazy Mountains'. There is opulent, comfortable western-style leather seating and a flat screen TV, a DVD player, wifi throughout the house and a vast collection of DVDs.

Off the living room is a bedroom with a king size bed and a full bathroom behind it.

On the opposite side is the dining area and kitchen. Access to and from the 2-car garage with remote-controlled electric doors is through a living room door.

A stairway by the front door leads downstairs where a queen size sofa bed sits in the den and 2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed (one has a genuine Tempur-Pedic bed) allow for more sleeping. Each has its own bathroom. The master bath has a Jaccuzi tub. Additional bedding is available in the house if necessary to accommodate up to 8 people.

A laundry room with a brand new large capacity washer and dryer adds to the comfort of your vacation. A Wii game system is all setup and can keep the kids occupied. A game table, cards, books for all ages are all there. There are 2 flat screen TVs in the house. One upstairs and one downstairs, each has a DVD player. Hundreds of DVDs are supplied.

Cooking at 'Whispering Acres': The kitchen is open to the dining area and great room, and has a wonderful view out all windows. A door opens to the large deck. We have fully stocked the kitchen with place settings, flatware, glasses, mugs, stemware, all cooking utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, and all kitchen 'tools.' Of course, there is also a dishwasher, refrigerator-freezer, island stove-top, double oven and broiler, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, blender, and waffle iron, and on and on...

About Michael Marcus

66 Year-old Graphic Designer, living in a big city out west. In need of a rural setting to decompress. Montana is ideal for that and I look forward to retiring there one day.

Michael Marcus purchased this house in 1997

Why Michael Marcus chose Livingston

Montana is truly Big Sky country. It has fresh air, is quiet, unhurried, spacious, with mountains that ground you, millions of stars that invite you to reflect. There are summer and winter outdoor activities if so inclined. A chance to catch up on reading. It also has challenging and engaging people. Always nice, kind-hearted and helpful. It's the way life was meant to be.

What makes this house unique

It's all that the city is not, and it's necessary for one's physical and spiritual wellbeing...

Beautiful Home with Stunning View's

Beautiful Home with Stunning View's
  • 5 of 5
This split level home is the perfect place for family and friends. The views from the sundeck are stunning. It is in such a tranquil setting with beautiful mountains all around. This house has everything to make you comfortable and keep everyone having fun. Thanks to the owner, you will want for nothing. However if you need anything, the local Albertson’s is a short drive into town. If you want to be in the beauty of Montana, you will love this peaceful home. I have rented several homes as we travel, and this home really stands out.

The house was very nice and the kitchen well stocked with cooking supplies. The beds were comfortable as was the house. We would've liked more outdoor furniture but besides that it worked out great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and I am glad that you've enjoyed your stay. We thought about adding more 'outdoor' furniture but the winds always end up winning and topple them over. It would be too much to ask guests to bring them back inside every single night. You've probably noticed that the picnic table is screwed onto the deck!

We enjoyed our stay at Whispering Acres. The house is very nicely decorated, well stocked with quality appliances and utensils, and is very well tended to.
The location is only 30 minutes from Bozeman airport and was a scenic 50 minutes to the gates of Yellowstone. We highly recommend this property and it's very attentive owner.

Whispering Acres is a beautiful spot to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Whispering Acres is as beautiful and accomodating as advertised. The ambiance is relaxing, rooms are large enough for several people to be comfortable, and the completely furnished rooms and kitchen made everything easy. The big windows gave us many breathtaking views of the surrounding meadows and mountain ranges! The western decor was tasteful with touches of France, which I particularly liked! This location is quiet and nature-filled, and the house was a "home" with all the necessary modern conveniences.

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I visited out daughter now living in the Livingston area and wanted a comfortable place for all to stay while we also enjoyed the winter time offerings of the region.

This home more than met our expectations. The views of the mountains are captivating and the home is well situated to take advantage of the vistas from both large living rooms.

We have had several stays with Home Away and VRBO and this house also stands out as being extraordinarily well equipped; the kitchen included some foods and even wine!! Detailed information about the surrounding area added to the overall hospitable presentation.

Were we to return to the area I would waste no time in looking for alternative arrangements, I would rent this home again without hesitation.

Trip to 50th Class Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation in Livingston, Montana for my 50th class reunion was very special because of the beautiful house that we stayed in at 45 Wineglass Lane. The whole family could be together instead of separate hotel rooms. The ammenities were superb. Everything that you could need or want was provided. It was amazing. The house was immaculate, and the furninshings were fabulous. My whole family was thrilled with our stay in Livingston. Thank you for everything.

The home - 'Whispering Acres' - is located on its own 20 acres and has a duck pond. (The map is not quite accurate! The house is a bit further south at a dead end road.) It is very quiet and private, yet only a couple miles from an Albertson's supermarket, 4 miles from Downtown Livingston, and 25 miles from larger Bozeman. It's also 4 miles from the nearest fly-fishing spot, right on the Yellowstone River. So you get the best of both worlds!

You can see more at www.whispering-acres.net

Other Activities: Wildlife watching, river rafting, canoeing, horseback riding, camping, dude ranching, fly fishing, hunting, bird watching, hiking, walking, biking and mountain biking, snow shoeing, skiing, stargazing, shopping! Your days can be jammed-packed full of activities yet some prefer staying at the house, reading and staring at the stunning views to recharge their soul...

Golf: There is a golf course in Livingston at the Livingston Golf & Country Club.

18 holes over 3,128 yards with a par of 36.

Ski: Bridger Bowl, Montana, is the gem of the Northern Rockies. Located only 45 minutes from the house, this outstanding ski area is well known for offering some of the most exciting ski, snowboard and telemark experiences that you will find, anywhere. This is not your typical Montana ski resort. Bridger Bowl is a nonprofit community ski area offering a great ski experience at an affordable price. Close-by Bozeman is home to Montana State University and is a young active community located only 25 miles from house.
