Bozeman House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Relax in the perfect vacation rental--our family's historic farmhouse, peacefully set on 11 acres in the beautiful Gallatin Valley. Close to Bozeman, home of Montana State University and Museum of the Rockies, OUR FARM HOUSE vacation home rests in a magnificent rural setting with room to roam. This completely furnished country home boasts many amenities as well as rural charm.

Open from APRIL 1 - OCTOBER 30 each year, the cozy home offers an atmosphere of an elegant turn-of-the-century country farm setting. The lovely surrounding grounds include a productive country vegetable garden, an abundance of trees and shrubs including towering spruce trees, and free-range chickens). A fully furnished kitchen will fulfill your every dining need when you elect to 'eat in', and everything for your first breakfast on-site is supplied.

The residence boasts three lovely bedrooms reminiscent of the elegance of days gone by. A library/reading room separates the two second-floor bedrooms. Breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains are visable from every window, both upstairs and down. Family heirlooms grace each room.

The one large, country bathroom is authentically furnished with the original bathtub, retrofitted, of course, with a shower for those who do not prefer to soak in the large bathtub. The house is open and light, and delightful surprises catch the eye in every room.

You will be the only guests during your stay at Our Farm House; the entire home will be yours.

During your stay, visit our great-grandparents' homesteader's log cabin (located just across the garden on site) to experience an authentic taste of Montana during the late 1800's.

Boasting a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, OUR FARM HOUSE is centrally located in Yellowstone Country for blue ribbon trout fishing, kayaking and float trips in the Gallatin, Madison and Yellowstone Rivers. Easy access to Big Sky, Moonlight Basin and Bridger Ski Resorts. A gorgeous one and a half hour drive through the picturesque Gallatin Canyon to Yellowstone Park or through Paradise Valley to the Park's north entrance. And it's just minutes to the mountains! Public golf courses within short driving distances.

Just like Grandma's.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Farm House for 4 glorious days. Mardeen and Alice have done a wonderful job restoring and making the farm feel very homy and lived in. (Make sure to read all the articles about them while there and check out the old homestead.) Between all of the antique knick-knacks and some of the original furniture, it really made me feel like I was transposed back to my youth and staying at my grandparents farmhouse. It almost made me want to go out and do some chores... well maybe not, but feeding the chickens (and pheasant) was fun for me and our 10 year old daughter. Speaking of, she got a kick of the enormous selection of books and craft making materials. The farm is only a few miles out of town, yet it feels like hours away from anything. The morning views from the large kitchen window of the Bridger Mountains was just the icing on the cake we needed. Our family very much looks forward to returning soon. Hopefully in the winter this time.

We want to live here!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful!!!! It is a journey back to a simpler and better time. I felt as if I were once again at my grandma's house.

We spent four nights and wished we could have stayed forever. We had planned to go out to dinner while in Bozeman but decided every day to get takeout or something to cook and rushed back to our farmhouse. What a pleasant way to end the day with a glass of wine, a beautiful sunset over the wheat fields and, of course, the chickens :-)

Alice, Mardeen and Phil are the best! The girls' love for their mother, Anna Mae, was apparent at every turn. The house is a tribute to all of their years together.

We will be back and hope it will be soon.

Charming Home & Setting

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming, relaxing experience! Stayed here to attend a wedding nearby. Such a great place to unwind & regroup! Neat, clean, pride of ownership! Gorgeous setting just 10 minutes from town...Wish I had time to run, bike or fish the Gallatin... Perfect location for that! Owners were accomodating, warm & hospitable. Going back...Thank you Mardeen & Alice!

Charming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our Farm House was perfect for my husband and I when we spent the week helping our daughter, a student at MSU get settled in Bozeman. The house was charming, furnished nicely, clean and inviting. We loved learning the history of the Farm House. Breakfasts with fresh eggs were perfect. Bozeman is close enough that you can get there quickly but when out at the farm you really feel like you are out in the country with a beautiful view of the valley. Even though we were busy shopping and furnishing an apartment, each day felt refreshed after our time at "Our Farm House."

Unforgettable Historic Bozeman Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our stay (this is our 2nd visit) at this beautifully restored,warm, and inviting farmhouse !The interior of the house could not be sweeter and was surprisingly spacious, while the views out the windows take your breath away.We spent our last evening sitting with the whole family around the dining room table, watching a spontaneous performance by our three little grandchildren playing kazoos against the backdrop of the deep antique windows framing the beautiful GallatinValley .By the way, you will be greeted by a small and very friendly little flock of pampered chickens when you arrive at the end of the driveway.Our grandchildren fed them by hand. We cannot wait to return next year!!
