Welcome to the 20 + acres of Paradise Mountain Retreat!
Paradise Valley is called God's country for a reason: you can taste the spirit of nature by merely stepping out the door and onto our beautiful WRAP-AROUND DECK...or hiking various deer trails on our 22 ACRES OF WILDERNESS PROPERTY. You will have the opportunity to discover our hidden CAVES, CANYONS, and WILDLIFE - all the infinite beauty and secrets Mother Earth has to offer. Our guests consistently express their surprise over the beauty of our home and its magnificent setting.
Experience the magic of a starry night from our OZONE filtered HOT TUB. Enjoy birds at the feeders..., deer on the lawn, our summer organic garden (and greenhouse) replete with colorful flowers and vegetables or admire picturesque Emigrant Peak as you dine or relax on the deck. Our FIRE PIT, tucked away in a CANYON just steps from the house and second TEPEE, offer enchanting evening CAMPFIRES.
And to top it all off it is a children's' Paradise also,with its dug in safe TRAMPOLINE, SWING SET, SLIDES,their own real play TEE PEE, BUNNIES, DEER and a VOLLEYBALL COURT providing fun for adults as well.
The house has 5 bedrooms and sleeps 14. For larger groups there is an attached apartment available that sleeps 4 at an additional cost.
Indoors, most tend to gather around the dining table for it offers a spectacular panoramic view of the mountains. People also gravitate to the wood-burning stove on a cool night, or on the second-floor balcony which overlooks the beautiful kitchen with marble-topped counters and provides even more SPECTACULAR VIEWS OF THE MOUNTAINS.
Did I mention the comfortable and practical Mexican tiles warmed up with our radiating floor heat.....Ahhh...it's like stepping into a warm bath!

We enjoyed staying in this beautiful roomy home, with plenty of activities available for children and adults, including short mountain hikes.
Great to have the wood stove when the weather turned chilly.
I can't say enough good things about this rental! I've been here in the spring and winter and loved it both times! It is very relaxing with a lot of little details that make it a wonderful time for all ages, whenever my kids see our pictures they ask to go back and visit!

The house was everything I wanted for the weekend, plus some. The hot tub was wonderful, first morning starter. The spacious kitchen/dinning area was perfect for our friends. We enjoyed cooking and laughing over the cooking island for most of the day. It was a lovely experience that I am looking forward to doing again!

From the minute I spoke with the Dutch owners on the phone, I knew this was the place for our vacation in the Emigrant/Yellowstone/Gardiner area. We were comfortable, peaceful, and everything was well stocked for our convenience. The organic garden and the hiking trails on the property were a big plus. It was a convenient location for fabulous fly fishing, swimming in the hot springs, and touring Yellowstone National Park.
