Photos and Description of this holiday cottage in Bozeman - Garden Cottage

Bright and sunny, private backyard and gardens

This converted Model-A barn is located in the backyard (private yard, alley entrance, and alley parking - please do not disturb the front house residents). It has been fully remodeled to include vaulted ceilings with skylights, a full kitchen, gas fireplace and clawfoot bathtub.

With the kitchen, living area, and bedroom in one space with high ceilings with skylight, the space feels spacious. There is a traditional bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower, and a closet for storage.

A cast iron gas fireplace easily heats the well-insulated studio. There is a small tv with digital antennae and a dvd player, and of course full-fledged internet service.

There is a new large deck entrance with sitting table and a bbq grill, facing the wild gardens maintained by the owners. From the entrance gate in the alley, the foot path meanders past the flower gardens, under a huge shade tree, and to a world record size rhubarb plant welcoming you to the door!

Garden Cottage is a licensed tourist home facility through the MT Dept of Health and Human Services, license # H-301554 County 16 Gallatin. Bozeman Cottage is owned and operated by Paul House, a licensed property manager in the state of Montana, license # RRE-RPM-LIC-45468.

Note: Wallace Ave will be under construction until mid August. Since the cottage is in the back yard, it is less of an issue than if it was on the street, but we want you to be aware of some additional construction noise.

What makes this cottage unique

The Garden Cottage is a wonderful free-standing one-room suite with no noises from the room next door because there is no room next door. Settle into this historic neighborhood and you'll be just 3 blocks from downtown Bozeman.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Paul, just wanted to thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage.  It was exactly what we needed for our stay in Bozeman.  We thoroughly enjoyed The place and will definitely keep you in mind the next time we visit Montana.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet little studio on a quiet alleyway. It has everything you need with a fully functioning kitchen, and a comfortable bed. On cold days it heats up quickly.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the garden cottage in Bozeman, MT. Very conveniently located only mn from Main street this adorable little house was the perfect place for me to discover the area. It has its own parking spot. The gas furnace provides an excellent heat source. Not to mention the miniature tree in the lost/storage area which gives this place an even greener feel. Last but not least it is steps away from my 2 fave eating spots: wild crumb & Ale Works. I felt atvhome right away & will definitely be staying there again.

Quiet and central area

  • 4 of 5

Had a little trouble locating the cottage with the written direction we were given, but found the cottage easily once we got on the correct alley. Enjoyed both the quite and central location for our mini vacation. The parking space was a little tight for our Trailblazer, so don't bring a long bed pickup and try to park in there. Enjoyed the glass fronted propane stove, just gave the cottage a homey feel. Also appreciated the complete kitchen as we made breakfast each day and usually packed a lunch for our exploring. Great place, and we'll be telling our family and friends about the cottage.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy, I'm glad you had a good stay. I realized the directions were off so they are now updated, including directions from the airport now that we have our new interstate on-ramp finished! We hope to have you back on your next visit for more adventures.

Location, location, location.

Loved this little spot in the heart of Bozeman. Not sure why anyone would want to stay in a big chain hotel when you can stay in a unique home instead. When I arrived it was a beautiful fall evening and the garden was so lovely. Walking distance to everything you need...Dave's Sushi, Blue BBQ and found a great running trail/bike path several blocks away.

Garden cottage was excellent

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the garden cottage and it was excellent. My son happen to live one block over, so the location was great. The large one room studio was very cozy, large working kitchen with some essentials in the refrigerator. Gas stove fireplace to warm the room. They offer bike rental and the bikes are there waiting for you, no hassle on picking up or retuning. We rode the bikes a lot and had we had to pick them up, we were have never done it. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Cute sudio

  • 5 of 5

Really loved the location for those of us who prefer walking to driving. Great value too.

One down side - I was delayed getting there by a day due to a flight cancellation and missed the first night. No sympathy expressed (offer to reimburse?) or a response when the wifi failed to work. Hopefully the customer service bugs will be worked out for this cute and quiet getaway.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you liked the Cottage. We always strive for great communication with our guests, and in this case we did respond to your wifi outage issue in just over an hour (though unfortunately the number we called turned out to be your home land line, and the email we sent to you was not received due to the modem problem!). Our last communication that evening was that you had corrected the problem by resetting the modem. We often have this issue and we have many clients that try this and succeed as you did. Please know that if the problem persisted, we would have been on site to correct it right away. With regard to your plane delay, there are many circumstances/ emergencies where we offer refunds or discounts to our guests. In this case if there had been an empty night available as requested we would have had something to work with to help make up for the plane delay. We would love to have an opportunity serve you again in the future and prove ourselves and please do not hesitate to reach out with any other concerns. Warm Regards, Marissa
