About Valerie

we built this garage and carriage guest house as part of the renovation of the main house sitting in front in 2005-06. we did a large portion of the work ourselves. i am a retired econ prof from SC, and i spend a good chunk of the year doing enviro consulting at a local think tank in Bozeman. my wife and i have family in Montana, and we pride ourselves in being a small part of the Treasure state.

Valerie purchased this studio in 2006

Why Valerie chose Montana

Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley are a sublimely beautiful and wonderful place to live and visit. The people are open, kind and generous and few places on earth are as breathtaking and relaxing.

What makes this studio unique

The Carriage House is a second story apartment with 360 mountain views surrounding. It is located in the southside historic overlay district of Bozeman and easy walking distance to downtown, restaurants, the coop, and MSU

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for offering the cottage. We had an excellent, peaceful time. The XC skiing and the snowshoeing were great. Sourdough trail was the most beautiful trail ever! Glad to have the opportunity to experience Montana.

I was so grateful to be able to stay in a place so safe, convenient, cozy, and soooo comfortable. Moving my boy into Montana State made this my perfect location to stay. The house was like staying in a treehouse. I loved having all birds in the trees right outside my window. It was quiet and clean. Looks like new construction or a recent remodel. There is a small but good size kitchen, plenty of work and eat in space, quality decor. The house is overall very spacious. The bathroom door does not go to the floor but that did bother us at all. Thank you for letting me enjoy Bozeman in your home.

Nice accomodations, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Charming carriage house apartment on a nice residential street with a beautiful hot tub in the back yard. Property was clean and well maintained. Nice location. Easy to walk to town from here. Owners are super friendly and accommodating.

Only negative was the saloon type bathroom door, which didn't afford much privacy.

Super laid back area, easy walk to downtown and the college. I would take this place over a hotel in Bozeman. The property manager was great to work with and provided lots of travel info sitting on the desk waiting for you to review. A+ for sure

My wife & I currently are living in the M Carriage House apartment above the garage while our house is being built here in Bozeman. It has been a wonderful experience. The care-taker / manager of the apartment has been great too !! The location is perfect, whether it has been to the walking distance regarding downtown / main street or local parks, which has been easily accessible walking or biking ... which I've been enjoying immensely. Hyalite Canyon is almost like being out your back door ... only 15 minutes drive to a beautiful canyon which offers great hiking, rock climbing or fly-fishing. In another couple of months, I'll be able to substitute the prior activities with xc skiing, snowshoeing and ice climbing ... Over all, this has been a wonderful place to be living while our house is being built or if just for a week or weekend to enjoy all the great things Bozeman has to offer :o)
