Livingston home in a quiet neighborhood on the very edge of town, with fishing out the back door.
Anglers can hit the river, kids can play in the small creek out back, and the rest of the crew can walk to downtown!
Stunning views across adjoining city park land and Yellowstone River to the Absaroka mountain range.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This four bedroom home is located on the eastern edge of Livingston with fabulous views of the rugged Absaroka Mountains to the south and the Crazy Mountain range to the east. The home has a rustic, western style with use of recycled barn wood and metal in the design. A small creek, actually the North fork of the Yellowstone River, flows right past the deck in the back yard. The creek has beavers, ducks, geese and otters to entertain those who just want to relax on the back deck. Across the creek is a large city park called Mayor's Landing. For those willing to brave a creek crossing, the main Yellowstone River is within sight and just a two minute walk from the back door. A large beaver dam helps to cross the creek with dry feet!
GENERAL LOCATION: The home is located on the eastern edge of town. A great little coffee shop is 3 blocks away and the main part of town with shopping and restaurants is 10 - 15 blocks from the house. It is a one hour drive to Yellowstone National Park and about 45 minutes to Bozeman's Gallatin Field airport.
BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS: There are four bedrooms in the home and four full bathrooms. On the main level of the home is a master bedroom with king size bed and an attached private bath with stall shower. The second bedroom has two twin size beds. There is a full bath with tub and shower out in the hallway. Upstairs is a second master bedroom with king size bed and attached bath with a double shower. There's a flatscreen TV in this bedroom with cable. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a full bathroom with tub and shower out in the hall. All bedrooms have iHome docking stations. Anglers Rest can accommodate up to eight guests.
KITCHEN AND DINING: The home has a complete kitchen with a gas range and oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and grinder, blender -- all the essentials! You will have all the cookware and serving ware you need for your crew. A nice gas grill is out on the deck for barbecues. The dining area is just off the kitchen, with an oak table that seats six to eight comfortably. There are a couple of stools at the kitchen island for overflow. The wrap around deck is set up with plenty of seating for those outdoor meals.
LIVING ROOM: The cozy living room is centered around the fireplace (gas-fired), which makes a great place for relaxing after a day of hiking, fishing or exploring. The living area is set up with a flat screen television with cable service and DVD player, and a stereo system with CD player.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Catch a trout just off the back deck before breakfast, or enjoy this bird watcher's paradise, with eagle, osprey, kingfishers and more in abundance. In addition to the amazing access to the Yellowstone River from this great location, you can walk to downtown and it is just a short drive to hiking, biking, rafting, and horseback riding in the summer months, and skiing and snowmobiling in the winter months. Yellowstone National Park is less than an hour away, and for an authentic and specialized guide service through the park, be sure to schedule a tour with our sister company, Greater Yellowstone Guides.
OUTDOOR AMENITIES: A huge deck wraps around the home with a large hot tub for soaking and star gazing.

We recently stayed at anglers Rest and had a marvelous time. The home has all of the space and conveniences you could possibly want while vacationing. The views are spectacular especially at sunrise. Even though the house is located in town you don't feel like you are in town when you look across the creek and river to the beautiful mountains. We highly recommend anglers Rest!!!

Staying at angler's Rest was one of the most magnificent vacations our family have ever been on. The house was beautiful and sat majestically on the Yellowstone River where just sitting outside on the porch and musing about the beauty and serenity of nature lowered our blood pressure by 50 points. It had every convenience we could ask for. The neighbors and townsfolk were so friendly, we were all ready to pack up and leave the big city of So. California and move to Livingston, Mt. We came home refreshed, rejuvenated, and renewed. We would recommend this vacation to any and everyone.

Overall the experience at the Angler's Rest was very positive. The information we got in advance was very helpful. The directions to the house, how to get in, etc. were very good.
The location of the house worked out well for us. The neighborhood was nice. We took lots of walks and were never bothered by anyone or any dogs, although there were plenty around.
The house worked out quite well. There are some items that do need some attention. There were a couple of chairs in the living room area that needed repair. One screw had come out of the chair arm and I fixed that. Onother of the chairs has a bad leg that needs tightening. (We tried but were unsuccessful at fixing that one.)
The kitchen and living room areas were not very well cleaned before we arrived. This should at least be mentioned to the house cleaner.
The back screen door needs to be fixed. It is continually off its track.
The closet door in the small bedroom was off the track.
The cable TV instructions need to be changed. The TV in the living room needs to be set on channel 60 in order to get any reception. It says that it is supposed to be on channel 3 or 4. I had to call the cable company and get instructions on how to get it to work. It would also be nice to have access to the local network stations.

We rented this house for a week for a family vacation. We were 7 adults, one baby and a dog. We were very happy with the house, the neighborhood and the help from Lisa at Montana Vacation Rentals. The views from the house are amazing and my husband and father in law enjoyed fishing right from their own river. Bozeman is a short drive away, but we felt that getting to Yellowstone for day trips was a little too far.
We were extremely happy with the beds! they were so comfortable. The hot tub was also a nice addition.
The house could use a recycling bin, we felt guilty about throwing away all those bottles and cans. Emigrant has recycling dumpsters but we found this at the end of our trip.
Overall we loved our stay and Montana is such a great place to relax and enjoy nature.
