Compare location, space, amenities, and rates. No Yellowstone Country property beats DA-JA View.

About Highland Associates

We are North Carolina natives with family ties to Montana going back 70 years. A group of young Tarheels, all war veterans,, came west looking for better jobs in the booming timber industry. Some couldn't take it and headed back east. Some died here before they could choose whether to stay or go.

The "JA" in "DA-JA View" was fathered by a wonderful, hard-working gentleman who survived 10 long years here working in an industry and in weather, and living in conditions, that were nothing less than brutal. JAne started school here in Livingston just down the road in Paradise Valley when 2-room schoolhouses were still the norm. Her "alma mater" still stands and has been renovated into a nice little house on Old Yellowstone Road.

In the late 1990's, JAne and her side of the family made a trip west which included a Livingston. BOOM! She decided it was time to reestablish here. I was skeptical to say the least. My family made 2 cross-country treks in the 60's which skirted north and south of here (why, Dad?). Think National Lampoon's "Vacation" on steroids. I had skied virtually every major Rocky Mountain slope (except Big Sky, ironically). BUT I had never been to Yellowstone Country. BOOM! I was hooked. At that time, the great land rush for vacation home property was just beginning. But we found out quickly that most of the prime building spots were already gone. After months of commuting and futility looking for the "right" place, we got lost and traveled up what is now our road. It was the wrong direction for the property we were actually looking for. But it was actually fate, luck, or Divine Providence steering us in the perfect direction.

Were it not for a twist of fate, DA-JA View would have never come to be. Jane's father is gone now, but he was able to visit several occasions. He approved, but he was astounded by what Livingston had become. DA-JA View proudly stands as part of his legacy.

You will agree this is Heaven on Earth. And part of the Last Best Place

Highland Associates purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Highland Associates chose Livingston

Pay close attention to location when looking through the listings for your Livingston/Paradise Valley vacation rental. You will see that most are in the Valley. That's fine and there certainly are views everywhere.

But if you would rather be UP looking out and down over the Valley rather than DOWN in the Valley looking up at mountains (like the one we're on), your choices become limited. Mountainside properties overlooking the Valley are scarce. And usually expensive.

Even though we're up and away, It's a quick trip up or down our road from or to the main highway. As you travel on our private road, you will be going through a huge horse ranch. You will pass a few homes, but the journey is as beautiful as the destination. You will likely see deer or other wildlife along the way, so be careful.

The value of the location of DA-JA View cannot be overstated. The sensation of sheer spaciousness are incredible - even at night! The grandeur of rainbows, sunsets, sunrises and thunderstorms are magnified. The sound of trains in the distance as you sit on our decks, patios, or porches is unforgettable.

We found the land by accident after we got lost trying to find another property. Once you see the view, you will understand why it was love at first sight. There is no spot on earth quite like DA-JA View.

We're minutes from town. 35 minutes from BZN airport. 50 minutes north of Gardiner, the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Six minutes or so from Rosa's, the best pizza in Montana. And maybe 10 minutes from Mark's In & Out which has been serving legendary burgers and shakes for over 60 years.

We rent DA-JA View at a rate comparable the the Valley rentals. But that is where the comparison ends.

Compare location, space, amenities, and rates. No Yellowstone Country property beats DA-JA View.

Yellowstone Country should be on everyone's bucket list. This is Montana's Paradise Valley, the Last Best Place.

What makes this cabin unique

DA-JA View is one of the few upscale mountainside residences available for vacation rental in Yellowstone Country. One can only truly appreciate the majesty of Paradise Valley by viewing it from above. And this is a PRIME location.

The cabin lies within a horse ranch. Even the drive up to the house from the highway is a delight. Wildlife abounds, so be very careful at night.

The place is rustic yet luxurious. Close to civilization, but feels like you're alone. With the lights of Livingston twinkling at night in the valley below, you have amazing views 24 hours a day. We are about 50 BEAUTIFUL minutes from Gardiner, MT, the northern entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

"Discover Livingston resting on the banks of the Yellowstone River surrounded by majestic mountains.

Explore Park County to experience the rivers and ranges, ranches and romance. Whether you seek the rugged outdoors or culture, cuisine and comforts, you'll find exciting places and friendly faces here in Livingston, Park County, Montana."

"Located just north of Yellowstone National Park, Livingston sits on the banks of the mighty Yellowstone River. The Yellowstone River is the longest free flowing river in the United States and is home to some of the best trout fishing in the world. Hiking, biking and horse back riding opportunities abound in the area making Livingston the perfect vacation spot. Known as a sportsman's paradise, many experienced guides and outfitters can help visitors have the hunting or fishing experience of a life time.The wide streets of the historic downtown harkens back to the days of Calamity Jane, a known resident of Livingston.

The home was lovely and richly appointed. A truly pleasant setting after a long day of exploring.

  • 5 of 5

The proximity to Yellowstone's North entrance (~50 minutes) was great and the drive was scenic and pleasant (even in mid-July). Livingston is a fun town offering plenty of restaurants and bars for the day's end. Absolutely no complaints!!!

Birthday Getaway! My new home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most magnificent house in the Livingston area! Everything you could ask for in a stay in Montana. Secluded yet close to everything- town of Livingston which offers some of the best restaurants and shopping in a small town, hiking trails, Yellowstone, Bozeman hiking trails, restaurants and the airport are 30 minutes away, fishing, rafting the list could go on and on. The view is breathtaking! Doesn't matter if it's morning or evening the view has something to offer different everyday- sunrise or sunset you will not be disappointed. The calm soothing sounds of nothing but nature is worth the stay. Short drive to Yellowstone- approximately 45 minutes to an hour, the drive is amazing, watch for wildlife! The house has everything you need and please appreciate the owners property by taking care of the house while you are there- a lot of unique and one of a kind masterpieces in this home. I could go on for ever about this home but to experience it you would need to stay in it. I would recommend it to couples and families that do not have small children. If you do have children please be respectful of the work that has been done to this magnificent home. I have lived in Montana and now live on the east coast and will diffidently come back here to stay again, it is true Montana and that is what you need to experience in your stay to this beautiful state. Remember this is a mountain home that is on a well water system so have respect for that. The owners are very quick to respond to any questions you may have about your stay. Loved my birthday in Montana and good to remember what it was like to live there. This will be my place to come to every year and enjoy this beautiful state.

This a beautifu property set in a very private setting with beautiful views of the town of Livingsto

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owner Daxid could not have been nicer and helpful with direction and helpful with the reservation- the house sits in a very private setting with all the amenities that u need- you can go hiking right from your backyard or many of the trails close by- what I liked the met is that the house was very comfortable and a Greg location for everything- stores, restaurants, fishing tours all within 10 min- if you eat to go to Yellowstone only 45 min beautiful drive-

I would ref recommend the house to families or couples.

Thank you David for everything
