Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Pleasant Pheasant. What a beautiful and peaceful place. We just got back from our trip yesterday. We both agreed that the 3 days at your place was our favorite of the vacation. We found boots to rent for our waders in Livingston and fished 2 times while there. We also took a hike up to Mill Creek falls and enjoyed exploring the area. Just wanted you to know how much we loved your place!! Thanks for sharing it with us. -Ellen, Atlanta, GA

BREATHTAKING VIEWS IN EVERY DIRECTION!!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a family reunion, the Pleasant Pheasant was sheer perfection for our group! The retreat could not have been located in a prettier location. The home and cabins were very clean, well appointed and tastefully decorated. We spent our days in Yellowstone and would meet for family dinners at 8, exchanging stories about the park. I would recommend this property for many reasons - you won't be disappointed. We hope to go back, now that Montana is now on our "favorite places" list. I could not get enough of the spectacular views!! Thank you - it was WONDERFUL!

BEAUTIFUL! COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER PLACE

Beautiful! Couldn't have asked for a better place
  • 5 of 5
When we first arrived I was already blown away by the view! Then we went into the house and was blown away again, it was beautiful and couldn't have imagined a better place to get married and spend time with our family and friends. Margie was great. She answered all my questions and gave recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Jason the caretaker was also super helpful and very, very nice. He answered any question we had and also gave us great tips on things to do around the house. I would recommend to anyone that this is the place to stay, we are already planning a trip back!!

THE TRUELY PLEASANT PHEASANT!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of the Pleasant Pheasant don't do this retreat justice. My extended family of 17, 6 being 2 to 10 years old, had an absolutely fantastic vacation here. We used the main house and the bunkhouse and all family members had individual spaces as well as a terrific common area in the house and decks. We were suprised with the extra space in the lower level, and how nice the bunkhouse was. Everything is supplied in the house and we really did not need to bring anything except food. The surrounding yard is all grass and fenced in - perfect for ball games that do not need adult supervision. We enjoyed white water rafting, horse back riding, and many visits to Yellowstone. The views all around the retreat were fantastic if you like mountains, sunrises and sunsets. We are planning to return as soon as possible as it is a 14 hours drive, but the whole family agrees this spot is perfect in every way.

TOTALLY HAPPY!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was better than hoped. The location was secluded with gorgeous views, The property was well kept, clean, equipped as needed, including the kitchens of which there were three. This allowed 3 different families to maintain their own schedules.
The location is very convenient for access to Yellowstone National Park.
Some of our group took an all day fishing trip, that was 3 hours away.
We did a half day horseback ride which was very close.
The owner was very helpful during the negotiation process and the planning phase. She had a list of suggested activities in the area, which was very helpful.

EXCELLENT PLACE - HAD AWESOME MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for place close to Yellowstone NP for large group this is an excellent spot.
The photos and information about the house is accurate. The house is located in a very scenic place. The place is very spacious and we liked it a lot. The owner was very help from the start. She provided a lot of information about activities and things to do while in Yellowstone.
We wished we stayed a bit longer. We had 15 in our group with 1 child and 4 toddlers. We had enough space among ourselves. The Kitchen was fully equipped. We didn’t cook much, most of the time it was only breakfast. The house had wifi & the quality was good. Bathrooms were clean. I don’t have any complaints.

A PLACE TO REST THE SOUL

  • 5 of 5
Sometime ago (Sept '11), my family (wife and four kids then aged 11, 7, 7 and 5) stayed at The Pleasant Pheasant. With a change of jobs, I have just re-read my email to Margie after we got back to Australia. This is what I said:

The Pleasant Pheasant will always be in our memories. It is such a fantastic location and cabin. For a family looking for a taste of Montana - we couldn't recommend it more highly. It is hard to describe the sense of space and majesty you feel when you are there. The two mountain ranges are breathtaking and constantly changing colours and feel. A storm rolled in one night and all we could do was stare as clouds rolled down the mountains.

As for the log cabin, what can I say other than we felt right at home, which was exactly what we were after.

The kids loved the freedom to be themselves, exploring in Elbow Creek, running around and around the cabin, watching a snake crawl across the yard and deer visiting for breakfast.

The drive to Yellowstone National Park was a trip in itself. The Park is huge. I knew it was big but wow! I doubt you could explore what you wanted to in a lifetime. The kids are now Junior Rangers.

An afternoon dip at Chicco with the kids was just what the doctor ordered. We also went to the Snowcamp (?) trail head but the kids wouldn't get out of the car until we promised the bears were all gone.

Livingstone and Bozeman were both fabulous day trips. Dinner at Montana's Rib & Chop House in Livingston was a highlight. One day the kids parked themselves in the kids' library section of the library in Bozeman (after finding the best candy store in town). Museum of the Rockies was amazing. The kids are also now Bobcats' fans and we have photos and hats to prove it.

I won't say goodbye but farewell as I hope you will let us stay again. We will definitely be back. We are already looking at You Tube videos of winter in Bozeman and we are keen for the kids to ski at Bridger and Big Sky. We look at the real estate pages and dream of owning a place in Paradise Valley."

Yes. We will be back
