BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This spacious and open home features exposed timbers, lofted ceilings, beautiful finish touches and some truly amazing mountain views.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS: The home has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. The main part of the house is all on the second level. A flight of stairs takes you up to the living area - where you will find the master bedroom with a king size bed. Attached is a beautifully tiled bathroom with a huge double shower. This bathroom is the only bathroom on this level, so it is also accessed off the living room. The other two bedrooms are on the main level. One bedroom has a king size bed and an attached bathroom with a sauna and the bunk room has one queen futon and a single futon. There is also a half bath on this level of the home.
KITCHEN: This complete kitchen has everything you will need to prepare any meals you desire during your visit. It is a long kitchen area, separated from the living area by a tall counter with a few barstools - for hanging out to chat with the cook! Off to the side is a dining table that seats four. Patio doors off the dining area lead out to a beautiful deck area for barbecues, or just relaxing and taking in the views.
LIVING ROOM: The living room has a cozy leather sofa for snuggling up in front of the woodstove on chilly evenings. The home has some books and games for entertainment, plus there is a television with a DVD for watching movies. The home does not have television reception, but there are movie rental stores nearby if you need a movie fix or you can stream from the internet.
SETTING, ACREAGE, VIEWS: The cabin is located on 20 acres in the Paradise Valley, between the small towns of Emigrant and Pray. Views are of the rugged Absaroka Mountains, and Emigrant Peak - which is just above the main attraction in this part of the valley, Chico Hot Springs.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Chico Hot Springs, or "Chico" as the name is shortened by locals, is open to the public, and is a must-do while you are here. Go for some great food, a relaxing soak in the hot springs, or some fun local music and a great dancing scene. Besides Chico, there is fishing on the Yellowstone River just a few minutes away, hiking and mountain biking on nearby trails, horseback riding, golf, skiing, tours of Yellowstone National Park, and everything that the towns of Livingston, Bozeman and Gardiner have to offer.

Our 3 day stay at Chico Peak kicked off a 12 day trip out west for our family. Talk about getting started on the right foot!! The home itself was spacious, clean, convenienly stocked, and nicely decorated. The property was nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains that made for wonderful sunsets. Our 3 teenagers had a blast every night spotting the wildlife all around the home from both inside the cabin and during our evening walks. There were 3 mule deer one night right outside our sons bedroom window. The staff was so accomodating, for our cabin we had rented from another company fell through just one week before our departure!! Which turned out to be a blessing in disguise for Chico Peak was both a nicer home & setting. The distance to Yellowstone was 30 minutes and other activities we did were about the same. Our only regret in the end was that we didn't stay longer!! We would highly recommend planning your vacation with Mountain Home Vacation Rentals.

Our home that we we had at Chico Peak was fabulous! Wild Deer outside our home in morning and evening-Home was unique that made it even more fun! Very Clean--It ended up only two of us being there (friends couldn't make it). Fun places to go out to eat around the home-Yellowstone very close to home-Chico was fun for soaking and food and music! We will be back!

The views in Montana were breathe taking and the weather couldn't have been any more perfect. The home we stayed in, Chico Peak, was very unique and warm. Every window you looked out of had a view of snow covered mountains. I enjoyed sitting on the window bench reading and watching my kids explore outside while my husband was cooking on the grill. At night we would lay outside and watch the stars. My sons were amazed with how many there were. Then we would head in and warm up on the sauna. It was a vacation that my family will never forget. I would highly recommend this house and I hope that we get a chance to make it back there.

We have stayed at several Montana Mountain Home Vacation Rentals and have thoroughly enjoyed our stays. The homes always exceed our expectations and offer every amenity needed to feel at home while on vacation. We recommend Montana Mountain Home Vacation Rentals and will continue to use them ourselves.

My wife and I stayed at this location for our honeymoon. The house has all the necessary amenities one could want. Especially if you are a cook, the kitchen is great. The location to Emigrant, MT is also very convenient as well. The General Store, gas station, fly shop and the corner diner are all within a very short drive. Keep in mind this house does not get TV reception (not like we needed it) nor does it get very good radio reception either. Also make sure you bring your bug spray as the mosquitoes were in full swing in June. The location of the house to the north entrance of Yellowstone is about 45min ? 1 hour away max. All in all I definitely would stay here again

This is one of the best vacation rentals we ever had. Right in the middle of the mountains, very secluded house with all the necessary amenities. Could not ask for more. My wife and I loved this place. Our favorite place was the sit-out at the back... early morning sun, the light breeze, a beautiful view of the mountains and a cup of coffee... ahhhh..
