About Wade Shafer
We are transplanted Minnesotans... came to Bozeman in 2003 for our careers... and the warm weather! We formerly had a vacation rental in Detroit Lakes, MN listed on VRBO. The great experience with our MN rental led us to purchase one in Bozeman in 2013. That home is in Bear Canyon (VRBO # 696631). We purchased this home in December of 2016.

Perfect Ski Weekend with Old Friends
Every year, several old friends from near and far gather to ski for long weekend. We ski and then we relax in a rented house while taking turns to cook for the group. Wade and Kathy's house was PERFECT for this group. As typical, we spent most of our time in the well-equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed the gas fireplace, the cozy warmth of the well heated home, and the hot tub. We felt pampered in such an accommodating, beautiful home in one of the most beautiful valleys, fully able to relax and enjoy our short time together. Hope to be back again in a couple years. Thank you!
Big Family Christmas Fun
We had a fantastic stay in Bridger Canyon over the week of Christmas with family coming together from all over the country. The home comfortably accommodated 16 of us ranging in age from 9 to 87.
The location was perfect. Skiing, both downhill and x-country, were conveniently just a few miles further up the canyon. A trip to Bozeman for groceries or shopping (Costco!) was also a short drive away.
Because of the large number of us and the fact that it was the holiday season, we did do a LOT of cooking. Thankfully, the kitchen is well-stocked, much better than most rentals, has a large refrigerator and two ovens.
The house simply had everything we needed. We have additional family in the area, and the baby gear was a huge help for my niece's one-year-old. The Pack-n-Play and high chair meant that she didn't have to haul gear to the house to hang out with us during the day.
The house was comfortable, had multiple gathering spaces, and Wade was simply great to work with. The multiple zones allowed us to keep sections of the house at different temperatures. This was a big plus for our family, who are acclimated to a range of climates.
We were all so pleased with our time together in Bozeman. Thank you!
Tip: If you happen to visit the area around the winter holiday season, check out the Candlelight Tours at Lewis and Clark Caverns (about an hour's drive away). They are only offered a few days a year and were a real treat.
The property was amazing and the owners were very accommodating and personable! I would highly recommend for any larger group
Great Stay for Brawl of the Wild
14 family members from 4 states gathered to root for both teams this weekend! The property is wonderful with plenty of room for all! Kathy and Wade make it “easy in easy out “ with excellent communication! We’re already planning our next trip !
We had a large group for a conference on campus. The beds and bathroom arrangements made it easy for getting everybody ready for sleeping at nights and leaving in the mornings. Although we didn't have time to enjoy all the amenities we were able to relax when we were on site! We even got the travel bus in and out easily.
Perfect Place to Stay
We have traveled and stayed in the Bridger Canyon area for many years and this home has been our favorite that we've had. It had plenty of space to fit our party of 10. The internet situation in some of these mountain homes can sometimes be troublesome but it was the best we've had in any home we've stayed, even when we experienced unseasonable terrible snow and cold. The owners are awesome people! They met us at check-in to show us around, were available to us for a couple of questions we had, but also kept their distance so we felt comfortable. This is a perfect place to stay in Bridger Canyon, great home, and a great location in the canyon!
