About the property

Luxury 3 bedroom Bozeman home on 20 acres with 360° mountain views!

The Roost @ Wild Mountain Ranch in Bozeman, Montana.

The Roost is our beautiful 1800 sq ft home with 3 bedrooms. It offers two levels to spread out & relax and sleeps 6 adults in beds. The upstairs loft has a large open floor plan with exceptional mountain views, plasma TV with DVD, wifi, a comfortable sectional, bar table with four chairs and two chaise lounge sofas to relax on together!

Extensive custom tile work in the kitchen and bathroom, new stainless steel appliances and a full size washer & dryer make your stay as comfortable as possible. The Roost offers spectacular mountain views and 20 acres to enjoy the peace & quiet. Gas grill with comfortable chairs on the porch, a log swing in the yard and a large picnic table to make your stay even more enjoyable. The Roost is such a cozy retreat, perfect for families and couples.

Our home is professionally cleaned between each family that stays with us. We have duvet bedding that is washed between each group that stays with us. We work hard to keep everything very clean and in new condition for all of our guests. We have very high standards of cleanliness, so expect the best! There is a new pack n play for an infant/toddler to sleep in and a new highchair.

Peaceful yet convenient to everything you could ever want to do or see. Located in Bozeman right next to town and major shopping! Best location ever. We have a security gate at the entrance of our property to ensure your relaxation & privacy!

About Edin & Melody Wells-Minthorn

We purchased our property here in Bozeman, Montana in October 2012. We are originally from Iowa City, Iowa.

Edin & Melody Wells-Minthorn purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Edin & Melody Wells-Minthorn chose Montana

When we first looked at this property it had been vacant for 15 years, everything outside and inside the homes and barn were from 1987 and everything was BLUE!! Blue carpet, blue exteriors, blue countertops, blue and pink flower wallpaper, it was a nightmare! My husband is a carpenter, so we felt we couldn't pass up these breathtaking Bridger Mountain views! We decided to buy it and then we spent the next two years gutting both homes out and doing a complete remodel. The end result is just fabulous!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

One of the things we appreciate most about our ranch (other than the breathtaking mountain views) is the peaceful country feel, yet so close to town! Being only 5 miles from major shopping, activities and restaurants makes this the perfect spot!

Awesome piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The owners has done a great job in making "The Roost" a very comfortable 3 bedroom home. Very well equipped, spotless, very comfortable bedding etc. You will want for nothing.

We stayed three week in Jan/17 no problem with access, the road was plowed several time.

Will stay again for sure

The Roost

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place. I would of given it 5 stars if it had an upstairs bathroom. Other then that we have no complaints only good memories to add to our Christmas weekend spent at the Roost. I have never seen so many Rooster's even had playing cards with them on it :) This was a great hit with my daughter that just started raising chickens this summer. Thank you for allowing us to stay here!

The Bozeman Roost House

  • 5 of 5

The Roodt was the perfect place to stay while enjoying Bozeman and the outlying areas. The house was comfortable, beds were perfect, and a well equipped kitchen for cooking.

The views of the mountains and open fields was absolutely stunning!

This home is great for a family or a romantic getaway.

Sit on the porch or the bench swing and listen to the silence.....

Perfect Montana Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Roost for 3 weeks so we could be close to our family in Belgrade. The Roost provided absolutely everything we needed - plenty of room, completely stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, quiet, awesome views of the Bridgers and daily wildlife viewings!! It is so close to town and Costco!! Great restaurants in Bozeman and lots of hiking trails nearby. We'll be back when we next visit Montana!
