'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.

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