The complete kitchen with dishwasher, range, microwave, and all the cookware is open to the dining area and living room. The dining room table will seat six, or head on out to the deck and e enjoy your meal while savoring the river view.
Relaxing will come easy on the Yellowstone Riverside deck. There you can hear the mighty river sweeping by, notice the sudden flip of a trout's tail, watch a bald eagle perched in the Cottonwood trees across the river, and see drift boats, kayaks, canoes, and rafts float by.
You will find a Hot Tub, comfortable patio set and gas barbecue grill along with a bench and hooks to hang your fishing waders. On the other side of the house, you will find a covered deck with a small table and chairs to enjoy your morning coffee while enjoying an unobstructed view of the gorgeous Absaroka Mountains.

Large windows offer spectacular views of the Yellowstone River, waterfowl, bald eagles, and the surrounding mountains.
Plan a trip into Yellowstone National Park, just a short drive South through Montana's Paradise Valley. With a little luck, you can hope to see deer, elk, bison, moose, and bears and other wildlife. Allow time to take a trip through the park to see Old faithful as well as the other amazing Geyser activity. Tour the hotspots of Yellowstone; which include: the Boiling River, the Grand Canyon, Old Faithful, the Petrified Tree, Norris Geyser Basin and Mammoth Hot Springs.
Chico Hot Springs, one of Montana's famous resorts, is just 10 minutes from the house; where you can enjoy anything from hamburgers at the grill to five star dinning -make sure to save time to enjoy a soak in the world famous healing hot springs of Chico. If you're up for some dancing plan to visit the Chico Saloon for live music on the weekends.
No smoking is allowed in the home. No pets are allowed on the property or in the home without prior written approval.
When winter sets in and snow falls on the nearby mountains, the Yellowstone River is fabulous to watch as ice chunks float by. Downhill skiers can head for the slopes at Bridger Bowl or Big Sky, while cross country skiers and snowmobilers can find fabulous trails in the mountains nearby or in Yellowstone Park. After a long day of winter play, the cozy gas fired woodstove at Yellowstone Lookout will be a welcome sight.
The magnificent North entrance to Yellowstone Park is a short drive to the South through Montana’s fabulous Paradise Valley. You’ll find that most of the Yellowstone Park roads are closed to normal vehicle traffic during the winter, from mid-December through mid-March. As such, it makes a winter visit an outstanding time to take a snow coach ride, cross country ski or snowmobile through the Park.
The only car-accessible Yellowstone Park entrance that remains open year-round is located at Mammoth (the North Entrance). That plowed road makes for a fun drive in the winter—you can explore the Tower Falls area, the Lamar Valley and Cooke City. You may even want to stop and ski on some of the many groomed cross-country ski trails which are located along this road. If you want to view wolves, check out the Lamar Valley in the winter. It is fairly common to view wolf packs from road turnouts using scopes or binoculars. In Mammoth you can rent snowmobiles, cross-country skis and snowshoes and take snow coaches that transport you to Old Faithful or take you on tours to other destinations.
In addition to soaking in the hot pools at Chico Hot Springs, another favorite winter activity is to experience the outdoor natural hot spring pools at Boiling River. You’ll find the Boiling River parking area about 3 miles inside the park from Gardiner. After parking, you’ll walk about a half mile along a path bordering the Gardiner River.
Eventually, you’ll see a place where a creek of hot geothermal water flows into the river (you’ll see lots of steam). Here you’ll see rocks piled up in the river to create natural pools where the hot water mingles with the cold river water to create comfortable places to soak and relax. It may be a little chilly when you get out, but it’s FUN and likely to be an experience that you’ll never forget.

We have lived in Bozeman, Montana (about 1 hour from the home) for over 25 years. We think you'll like the Paradise Valley and location right on the River. We sure do!
Ronda purchased this house in 2002
Why Ronda chose Paradise Valley
We bought this property and built this home in 2002. The home is situated right on the banks of the Yellowstone River. In fact, many people say it feels like the river runs right through the living room. The river and mountain views are fabulous and you might even enjoy the great fishing right from the property.
What makes this house unique
The home is loaded with all the comforts of home and the views from the riverside hot tub are amazing! The location offers a great sense of privacy while being situated in a small neighborhood of homes in the Paradise Valley. You'll find easy access to Yellowstone Park and the fun towns of Livingston and Bozeman, Montana. If you need to accommodate additional people, please contact us for options.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed here on our honeymoon trip. What a relief that the house looked exactly like the pictures, maybe better. It was just the two of us, but so many more people could have come along. We made dinner on the grill two nights. Enjoyed some wine on the deck overlooking lake yellowstone. The hot tub is amazing. Easy to use. There's nothing like looking at all of those stars. We went to the park every day. We can't say enough about this house. Fully stocked, comfortable and beautiful. We loved it here.
