About Susan Kirkland

We are Johnny and Susan Kirkland, we live in New York, on Long Island's North Shore, most of the year, but all of our 4 children have moved out west and made it their home. So, we thought we should follow suit, we just aren't quite ready to leave New York full time yet. We bought our house and stay there several times per year, so you can be sure that all of the creature comforts are available to you. Susan is a retired Special Education Teacher, who still substitute teaches on a regular basis and Johnny is a Physicist and software developer. Since our children have gone, we've picked up a new hobby of raising guide dogs. We have successfully raised Josh, who is a working guide dog, and we have raised London, who is now a Vet Service Dog for a disabled Vietnam veteran, and we have Gretha, a breeder dog for the GDF, as well as Dave and Sushi. All three are black labs who lives with us all of the time. This is where our home's name comes from, The Black Dog Hideaway is a tribute to our love for our guide dogs and the important work they do.

During your visit you may see our son John who takes care of the Black Dog Hideaway and lives in the private basement apartment with a separate entrance, or when you are making a reservation you'll talk to Sue who manages the home and bookings.

Please feel free to contact us anytime, we'd love to hear from you!

Susan Kirkland purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan Kirkland chose Bozeman

We fell in love with this house the moment we stepped inside, and we know that you will too! There are two adorable porch swings on the front porch, and the subtle character is amazing. Downstairs, you'll notice the original woodwork, and a beautiful stained glass lighting fixture over the dining room table. Upstairs was updated with comfort in mind. This house has the best of both worlds, old world history and modern updates and comforts. Plus, you can't beat the location, and proximity to downtown Bozeman!

What makes this house unique

Please enjoy the jetted tub with TV in the master bath. Also for your comfort we have installed baseboard heaters under each sink to warm you from the bottom up.

In the master bedroom you will find a built -in wall heater for you additional comfort.

The stereo is located in the master bedroom cherry closet, and can be heard throughout the second level on built -in speakers.

In the living room, we have installed a 55 inch 3DTV with 3D glasses for 6. Original hardwood floors have been enhanced with walnut ribbon knots and refinished to their natural beauty. With the push of a button, you can enjoy our gas fireplace and enjoy a cozy relaxing atmosphere with family and friends.

The kitchen has granite counter tops, double oven, pot filler over 5 burner gas stove, ice maker on the refrigerator door, double sink, and trash compactor.

The walk to town is easy, and close, as is Cooper Park at only two blocks away. We have a covered backyard deck with outdoor table and chairs that seat 6 for added summer entertaining.

Adorable House!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the week of my wedding and used the house to get ready the day of the wedding, as it is close to the church where I got married. It couldn't have been more perfect! The kitchen was beautiful and functional, and we loved the huge master bathroom. It truly has all the amenities a rental house could have, which I really appreciated, as I have stayed at rental houses before that were not completely stocked (ie not sufficient toilet paper, paper towels, plates, etc.). Although the house does not have air conditioning, there are ceiling and wall fans that helped keep the place cool.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Renting this property for our mini-family reunion was so easy from the start. Owner Sue was responsive to specific questions regarding the house accommodation for my elderly mother. The house was as beautiful as the photos. The location could not be more convenient (we walked everywhere including downtown for Music on Main). The outside deck was perfect for our family meals and games. The beds were comfie. The kitchen well stocked. Everyone remarked on the 'jewel' I found on VRBO, and I'm sure we would rent again if the occasion arises. Thank you for a great reunion weekend, Black Dog Hideaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and advice about the couch. Although the couch was upgraded with a more expensive mattress, and is only a year old, so basically new, we will inspect it when we are out there. We always appreciate our guests comments. Thank you for choosing Black Dog Hideaway and we hope you will visit again soon.

Bozeman's Best - Black Dog Hideaway

Bozeman's Best - Black Dog Hideaway
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week to tour MSU with our son, catch up with great friends and catch some great turns at Big Sky and Bridger Bowl. The house was a "home" to us, with well stocked kitchen, comfy LR with gas fireplace and huge master suite with whirlpool to soothe those aching muscles. Plenty of room in the dining room for a 8 person dinner and the available grill assisted us with a nice winter BBQ! Location was perfect as we walked the short distance to "downtown", including 3 awesome breakfast eateries within 2 blocks. Ample parking for 2 cars off street. Good location in family neighborhood. Nice LG screen with lots of channels and numerous Blu Ray movies to pick from, as well. Sound system upstairs pre-set to FM 93.7, a perfect radio station for our tastes, another nice touch. When warm, the back patio and 2 front porch swings will be very handy - we look forward to that usage during the Spring / Summer. Susan is great and very client-focused, wanting to make sure all was perfect for our stay. All was perfect and we will definitely be back!

The two blocks walking distance from our home to Main Street is great, and I am glad you had the opportunity to eat at some of the great restaurants in town. I hope you will be back and try some more of what Bozeman has to offer. We look forward to hearing from you in the future. Thanks again, Sue & Johnny (owners)

Brothers review Black Dog Hide Away stay

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I appreciated our stay at Black Dog. It was as described and more. The kitchen was especially well-furnished with everything a cook could ever want or need. It's location suited our needs as well. We ate at a couple of Main Street eateries. Our cousin lives nearby, and we split our times going to either Big Sky or Bridger for some excellent skiing.
Thanks so much for the stay.

We had an amazing experience, our goal was to tour MSU for our son, to be part of the incoming freshman class. It quickly became so much more, we loved the neighborhood feel, the proximity to it all, the environmental awareness of your town, the friendly people. The Black Dog Hideaway, speechless, so well laid out,so well provisioned, loved the sun angles, so well equipped, every room was a delight in its own way, the master bed room and bath, wow!

Owner's Response: Wow!
Thank you for such a great review! I am so glad your stay at Black Dog Hideaway was so nice for your winter stay. Good luck to your son and maybe we will see you again for Move-in day, Parents Weekend, or the famous MSU vs. UM football game. Or spend some time and enjoy the fabulous summer weather, tour yellowstone, and enjoy all that Bozeman has to offer.
Thanks again,
Sue & Johnny (Owners)
