This is a completely restored 1890s vintage historic home originally built by Bozeman pioneer Christopher Waterman. The home has wood floors, oriental carpets, 9-10 foot ceilings, and horse hair plaster throughout. It has been been completely restored and remodeled over the past few years. The home is outfitted with Montana made Mission style furniture. There is a hot tub and unique outdoor concrete dining area.
The home was located on Main Street in Bozeman until the 1960s when it was rescued from destruction by Ann and Roger Stradley who bought it and moved it several blocks to its current location. We purchased it in 2003 and remodeled the whole place, new kitchen, two new baths, and refinished all the original wood floors.
The home was once owned by the justice of the peace and several hundred Montanans were married in what is now the living room.
Home has exquisite views of the Bridger Mountains, the Gallatin Range, and the Spanish Peaks.
The Waterman House is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from MSU campus and all the experiences of downtown Bozeman.
**If you need additional space, the M Carriage house, adjacent to this property is available. See vrbo rental #346216 for more details on the M Carriage House**

My wife and I a part time residents of Bozeman, and love the place. The town and people are rare and fine folk. I am a retired econ prof from SC, and I work part time at an environmental think tank in Montana. We have family ties in Montana and have lived and loved the place for a long time. We have listed a few of our favorites on the map, and included a complete visitors guide (food, attractions, activities, walking tours, day adventures, shopping, etc.) in the house.

House was great! Kitchen was good, beds were comfy, well located. Will stay here again!
Highly recommend this house
So happy you enjoyed our place. welcome back anytime
Awesome house, great location
The house was even better than expected, especially the back yard. We made good use of the hot tub.
This house was great. We were in town for a reunion and rented both the House and the Carriage House. It was a perfect arrangement and we were even able to host a small dinner for the early arrivals before the actual reunion started. The house was well stocked and very comfortable. The owners were also incredibly helpful and accommodating. Would rent there again.
Wonderful house in the heart of Bozeman
The Waterman House provided the perfect place to stay while spending a week in Bozeman. We had everything we needed, and the owners were very responsive to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful historic house within walking distance of Main Street.
A home away from home, very comfortable and well maintained.
The Waterman House is in an excellent location between downtown Bozeman and the MSU campus. The home is well maintained and provides every comfort. The hot tub is super clean. We would stay here again.
We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this one is by far the best equipped and the most comfortable place we have stayed. This place truly felt like home and we had plenty of room for the family to spread out. Ted and Nancy live close by and are very nice people to deal with, I will definitely be back.
There is a Carriage House adjacent to the property available for additional guests. For more details see the Bozeman listing for M Carriage House (VRBO #346216).
