Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time at time at your lovely home. Everything was perfect. The house was gorgeous and wonderfully equipped - kitchen equipment, games, DVDs, paintings, outdoor furniture etc. and a fantastic amount of information provided. Michelle and the girls have a great passion for all things to do with bears so your bedspreads etc. went down very well.







As you said the house was very large but actually felt very cosy and welcoming. Despite the size of the house our two youngest daughters decided to share the upstairs bedroom. Even the weather was great (warmer than we expected, particularly in the evenings). We had a great time sitting out on the deck for breakfast and in the evenings and the views were absolutely magnificent - the reason we were so keen to visit this area in the first place. Although there were some fires - Emigrant and three I think in Yellowstone, they only affected us very marginally with a bit of haze from time-to-time, unlike the situation when we visited Yosemite a few years ago where we almost got caught in the middle of a fire. The girls and I made great use of the basketball hoop and we all made quite a lot of use of the hot tub.







I think we visited every one of the list of 'must see' sights that you kindly provided and a few more besides. We particularly liked:



· The Canyon (we did a fantastic rim walk there which avoided the crowds and got us very close to the falls);



· Yellowstone Lake which was placid, looked fantastic and had very few people;



· 'Morning Glory' which was unbelievably colourful - and also un-crowded as most people appear to go to Old Faithful then leave.



· The Midway Geyser basin – which again was so colourful







We saw most animals – but unfortunately no bears except ‘Brutus’ and friends in the compound on the way to Bozeman.







We also spent quite a lot of time in Bozeman itself (which we really liked), we went rafting from Gardiner down the river which was excellent and went to Nevada & Virginia City on one day, the best part of which was the drive because the scenery was magnificent. We did not attempt to go further afield to Grand Teton or the Bear Tooth Pass because there was plenty that we wanted to do nearer.

Many thanks for letting us use your amazing house. When things settle down a bit I would be delighted to write a five-star review and probably send you a few pictures which illustrate the fantastic time we had there.

We arrived to this great property. Easy to find from airport and daily travels. Home was exactly if not better than described. Had group of 9 and home was laid out so everyone had a different area of house. Each couple had own attached bathroom. Kitchen was well stocker with quality ware. We used the programmable crock pot so when returning from day at yellowstone, dinner was ready! Explored Livingston and Bozeman area as well! Had more to do than we had time! We will return for future trips! Saw more animals this week than visit to a zoo!

Perfect Home, Beautiful location and Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have been happier with our choice to stay at Adele's beautiful and welcoming home. Where to start to describe how much we loved this place? My husband and I arrived with our daughter(24) and her husband(26), our son (21) and youngest daughter (16). We offered the upstairs master to our daughter and son-in-law and they loved the breathtaking views out the windows. My husband and I selected the newer addition master bedroom with gorgeous tile work in the bath, huge walk-in closet and stunning views out the patio doors. Youngest daughter selected the other smaller "master" bedroom that was also in the newer addition and had an equally beautiful bathroom and with a bigger slate shower. Son took one of the first floor bedrooms with a bathroom across the hall. This left two bedrooms that we didn't even need - SO much room for everybody!

The living room was huge with large TV (watched the Olympics while doing puzzles) and set off by the soaring windows looking out toward the mountains. My husband is the gourmet cook in the household and, after renting many VRBO homes in the past, he was practically giddy with the quality of the cookware, knives and spices that were available to us. Even quality paper towel. Thanks Adele!

The dining space was also huge and allowed for bountiful meals and bustling game time. We LOVED the pool table and used it frequently for games of Red Ball since none of us are good at pool. Probably the most laughter during the entire week occurred around that pool table! The best feature of the home is probably the deck and the beautiful sunsets and sunrises that it afforded. The deck faces east toward the mountain valley that cradles the road leading to Yellowstone's North gate. Sunsets are also enjoyed, however, for the dazzling display of light upon the mountains and any clouds that act as canvas as the sun descends behind the house.

You might think that having a host across the ocean may be a liability but Adele emailed and even called me frequently as we got close to the date. While there, the fridge starting humming and Adele had her handyman stop by who stopped it right away. Easy! Adele made great recommendations for day trips to the park, restaurants and even a ranch that allowed us to ride like the cowboys. After the traffic in the park on three of our days, it was great to return to our spacious and peaceful retreat each evening.

We hope to return someday!!!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We selected Hunkapi following an arduous search process and couldn't be more pleased with our decision. This is a five-star accommodation (see previous reviews) offering comfort, Big Sky seclusion and more than enough room and privacy for larger gatherings. It's remote enough to see the Milky Way on a clear night, close enough to civilization to make a quick run into town for essentials, and centrally located for easy day trips to Yellowstone National Park, Bozeman and other must-see/do Montana-vacation attractions. If Hunkapi is for you, drive slowly on the gravel road leading up Wineglass Mountain to/from this wonderful retreat, leave only footprints as you explore the wilds of Montana, and create the memories you'll cherish for a lifetime thanks to this superbly managed and meticulously cared-for VRBO. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

FABULOUS !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in August for my sons wedding ! The whole family came, 7 adults and 5 children. This house was PERFECT for what we needed. It was a short car ride to Livingston, but we had the privacy of family time at this spot. The beds were VERY comfortable! Everything worked, the kitchen was a great gathering place. I can't say enough about what a fantastic time we had there ! And the view from this home was nothing short of SPECTACULAR!! I have found the right spot should we have a family reunion sometime in the future in Montana.

A great House on the hill

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything one would expect a “House on the hill” in Livingston Montana would look like. From the fully furnished kitchen to the pool table and hot tub what more do you need. The 7 bedrooms rooms were just what we need for the 7 fly fishermen who stayed there. The furnishings were impeccable and the view of Livingston is worth the price alone. I am sure Adele has missed her calling as she is a great hostess and interior designer.

Having enjoyed the house before, in 2014 and now in 2016, we plan on renting it again for 2017.

Thanks Adele for an outstanding rental.

We’ll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gene for your wonderful review! We look forward to having you stay again next year. As usual we will be able to offer you the discount for our returning guests. We hope the fly fishing conference was a huge success and that you managed to enjoy some down time fishing the Yellowstone.

This beautiful home was perfect for two families. Six spacious bedrooms, inclusive of two King Master Suites made it easy when we arrived as their was no bickering over who gets the best bedroom. The house is incredibly spacious and a short 30 minute drive from Bozeman Airport. It offers everything you would want in your own home to make your stay comfortable (fully equipped kitchen, coolers to take on day trips, Large flat screen TV, DVD Player, movies, pool table, ping pong table, hot tub, out door games, board games, high quality bedding and towels, etc). I'm not sure what owner, Adele does for a living; but she would make the best concierge I've ever met. From the moment we agreed to rent her home (3 months prior to arrival) till after we returned to our own home she made sure everything was going smoothly. She gave us a three day itinerary in Yellowstone which we followed to a tee and made the trip so much more enjoyable. Although she has enough guide books and tourism pamphlets to fill a small library, we found it easier to just follow her personal suggestions and recommendations which she sent in a 13 page handout prior to our arrival. It included tips on various restaurants, places to see, things to do, etc.

If you're thinking of visiting Yellowstone or southern Montana, I would highly recommend staying here. On the days we didn't visit Yellowstone, there was plenty to do in the surrounding area including horseback riding, fly fishing, zip-lining, rodeo, swimming, etc.

Downtown Livingston (about a 7 minute drive from house) was a wonderful place to walk around with museums, stores and great restaurants. For those that want to eat in, there's a large supermarket 5 minutes from the home. With all the above mentioned things to do to keep families busy and entertained, I'd have to say my favorite thing to do was to just sit on the huge wraparound deck with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and look out into the surrounding valley and mountains (overlooking downtown Livingston) with the horses and various other wildlife roaming around. Truly a great experience!!!
