About Dean & Kristi Drenzek
Dean is a Wisconsin transplant and Kristi is a native Montanan. We met teaching school on the Blackfeet Reservation near Glacier Park near the Canadian border. We have lived in Bozeman long enough to see our children grow up through Anderson Elementary and Bozeman High Schools. Kristi likes yoga, antiques and lunch with her friends. Dean likes Model A Fords, history and cross-country skiing.
Dean & Kristi Drenzek purchased this Barn in 1999
Why Dean & Kristi Drenzek chose Bozeman
When we were looking for a house with acreage, we found this property: a great outdoor space, but still relatively close to town. Instead of having a view with city lights, we found a place with a view of starlight. This is a place where you can see fox and deer and eagles; you can cross country ski or take a walk, picnic in a meadow surrounded by mountain ranges, or fish in Hyalite Creek. There are many fine places to sit and chat or take out a drawing pad and record what you see. There are many ways to enjoy the 1915 Barn and its surroundings. You will find your own.
What makes this Barn unique
When you walk into the barn you will enjoy the original 11-foot ceilings made of darkened antique wood. The warm colors used on the walls accent the antique furniture and handmade vintage barn-wood bed frames. The carefully chosen drawings, photos, and maps are decorative and informative. An end of the 14 foot by 60 foot living/TV/game room is a garage door that is a giant 'window' to the world. The kitchen has 20 stoneware place settings and a table space for each. A modern kitchen and laundry will allow you to do things you do at home. The entire barn has a sound system, an intercom and WiFi. We subscribe to DirecTV with over a hundred channels. Each bedroom has a personal sound system- just plug in your mp3, iPod, or computer. Each bedroom also has a shower/toilet/sink and a sitting area. The beds have Hilton brand mattresses and headboards that are handmade from antique barn wood. The hay loft has great acoustics and a sound system. There also is a basketball rim and a hardwood floor in the hay loft. The rounded exposed rafters let you feel the shape of the roof. From the attached deck you can see the 10,000 ft. Spanish Peaks, the Tobacco Root Mountains, Gooch Hill and the Horseshoe HIlls. In the yard and surrounding pasture you will find part of the barn's log wall, horseshoe pits, part of the old corral, a log house, a creamery, old farm implements and a tractor. At the corner of the property is Hyalite Creek. It is a great place to collect your thoughts, catch a fish or just sit and listen to nature. Come find your special place at the 1915 Barn.

Great location for a group of old college friends with families to gather and enjoy the nature of Bozeman. The 1915 Barn provided all the space we needed and fun to have basketball, ping pong and billiards in the barn.
A Perfect Holiday Spot
This is our second time staying at the Bozeman Barn for the holidays. We love the space, cleanliness, and open loft area for the kiddos to play with their toys on Christmas morning.
MSU Winter Graduation
We hosted family and friends from four different states for the holiday season and a MSU graduation. The accommodations were outstanding for having so many people under one roof! The hosts went above and beyond to ensure our stay was memorable. You can guarantee we will be returning to the barn for many other events and reunions!
Wedding weekend retreat
This is hands down the most amazing place to stay. So much fun for young and old.
Wedding Week Stay
We are in awe of how beautiful the 1915 Barn is! It was the perfect spot for our small (30 guests) wedding reception and the perfect home base for the wedding party for the activities leading up to the wedding! I would definitely recommend this venue and home - it is one of my favorite parts of my wedding week!
We are honored that our property is part of some great memories!
This is one of the absolute best VRBO's we have stayed in. We chose this place for my daughter and her boyfriend's graduation from MSU and we couldn't have been happier. Two families, 10 adults and the accommodations were amazing! All bedrooms have their own bathrooms plus a powder room on the main floor. The place is beautifully decorated and very comfortable, and was a great spot for entertaining because of all of the open areas, the pool table and the upstairs loft. Very well appointed with amenities in all of the bathrooms and the kitchen was well equipped. The yard and the view...spectacular! Dean and Kristi were gracious hosts and were quick to respond on any of our questions. Our only regret is that we didn't find this place 4 years ago when she first started college! Such a great place!!!
We appreciate your kind words and are pleased your group enjoyed the space! We had a good time visiting with you all :)
