About Essie Hayes

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 here on several occasions. He approved, but 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 the Last Best Place.

Essie Hayes purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Essie Hayes chose Wineglass

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 OK 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 outrageously 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 2-mile drive up to the house from the main 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 55 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. Livingston delivers an eclectic blend of shops, museums, galleries, live theater and music, as well as unique restaurants for every taste. 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. Boutiques, cafes and art galleries featuring some of the countries most renown Western artists make a day of shopping a cultural surprise."

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This location was ideal for our family. We loved Livingston. You are close enough town to get what you need but also far away enough to enjoy the peace and quiet and the views. We will be back.

Simply AMAZING home

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING stay at this incredible home! Hands down, my dream home! It was a clean and cozy cabin. I loved all of the decor! It was close enough to town to drive in in just a few minutes but far enough you felt like you were on a secluded mountain in Montana! The VIEW!!!!!! Ahhhh.... it is STUNNING!!! We even got some snow while we were here! We loved the location. We went to Bozeman for a day and to Yellowstone also. Can not say enough great things about this rental! Our time there was perfect! We will definitely be back!!!!
