Why Bernie Mohatt chose Yellowstone

My husband and I drove through this valley on our honeymoon , many years ago ,and found it so beautiful. Over the years we have kept returning to this area. We think it is a dream come true that we found this villa for sale in 2006!

What makes this villa unique

In October, 2010, one of our renters told us that was their favorite month to visit Paradise Valley! The fall colors were spectacular and they didn't have to deal with crowds of people. They loved sitting on the back deck and enjoying the view of the valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at the villa. The kitchen is really nice! It is great to know about this wonderful villa in beautiful country. We hope to return in the future!

Enjoyed our visit to Montana

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. It was well stocked with amenities to help us out during our stay. The owners were very accommodating to answer questions for us and very helpful. We enjoyed the little bakery, eatery that was located nearby. Montana was beautiful and we sure enjoyed all we got to see when when we were there.

Cozy Villa 30 Minutes from Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the villa for 4 nights. It had everything we were looking for. The new dining set is great, we all sat down every night after spending 10 hours at Yellowstone. It was nice and quite, this place is great! It was cool to see all the wildlife around the area. I would definitely recommend this villa.

Bernie the owner was very responsive. We had a great time!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My parents,husband and I spent almost a week at this location and it was perfect. We felt right to home and it is in a safe location. The distance from Yellowstone is close enough to visit every day with just a short drive. The owners are very helpful and considerate.

Paradise Valley - Yellowstone

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just spent 5 wonderful days in Emigrant, MT visiting Yellowstone NP (Aug 20 - 25, 2016)! Bernie was a great host and even helped us out when we locked ourselves out of the townhouse - thank goodness! Our stay was wonderful and we had all the amenities of being in a home that was very welcoming. We loved the peace and quiet after spending full days at YSNP and the great views as well. It was a scenic and nice 30 min drive to the North entrance of YSNP each day (best entrance and near Mammoth Hot Springs) and we were sure to be back before dark to avoid any wildlife on the roadway. We also loved that Chico Hot Springs was 5 minutes away and we enjoyed our swim over there in the nice mineral pools. We also enjoyed pizza from the Riverside Bar & Grill across the highway. I would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to come back and visit in the near future.

Nice quiet town

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here while visiting Yellowstone. It was just far enough away that we could come back after a long day of driving thru the park and relax without the traffic of all the tourist. It was very clean and had everything you could want. The BBQ place right down the road is excellent, I would highly recommend trying it out. The villa was plenty big enough for my mom, dad, husband, myself and our two kids. My 14 year old slept on the coach while my 9 year old, husband and myself slept in the guest room (it got a little hot at night but they do have a fan for you to use, no a/c) and my mom and dad took the master bedroom (it does have a/c). We would love to go back. If only it was closer that 20.5 hours away :(

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you found the room warm. We are going to definitely work on a solution. According to the law, we recently installed and egress window in this room. We are going to have to figure out some kind of a air-conditioning system that will work with this type of window. Another option is to open the window and let in some fresh air. The days can be hot but the nighttime temperature typically this time of year is only around 50 to 60° range.
