About the property

Unparalleled exclusive private country setting within minutes of Bozeman

Set within a short distance to Yellowstone Park, 3 major world class ski resorts and blue ribbon fishing rivers, this home offers amenities you won't find anywhere else. The classic vernacular farmhouse is set against a backdrop of open fields and willows and water - home to abundant birdlife including Sandhill Cranes, Blue Herons, Bobolink, Canada Geese, ducks, pheasants, song and marsh birds. Rarely can you experience a private pond out the front door and unobstructed views of the many surrounding mountain ranges as well as close proximity to a desirable destination town.

This property has it all and will provide you with an experience of a lifetime.

Imagine yourself casting a line into the trout filled pond or sharing a beach fire under the moon's glow, sitting out back watching the sunrise or out front - the sunset over the mountains or enjoying the livestock in the front or side pastures. Cuddle up next to the warmth of the fire in the Tulikivi stove or cook up a delightful meal on the Wolf. Pick fresh vegetables from the kitchen garden. Pack your cameras, your paints, your imagination and head to Montana. Learn what it's like to live in a place of such beauty. Learn from the wildlife still nesting and growing among willows and reeds. Smell the fresh ions sweeping off the mountain tops. The Cottonwoods is the place for you to recharge and unwind - find yourself in a vibrant place. Rediscover imagination.

The home features wood and stone accents including a wood burning soapstone fireplace, two gas fireplaces, gourmet kitchen, a large master suite with a private gas fireplace and a jetted tub overlooking the pond view, two other bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate additional guests. Enjoy a cozy media room as well as ample dining area for the welcome meals after a full day of skiing or hiking or site seeing. The full wrap around covered porch provides another opportunity to enjoy each vista. A private sandy beach is the perfect spot to visit or play. Soak in the hot tub facing the Bridger Range.

Hide in the ancient trees and discover the 'Secret Place' all on your own.

Come here and remember how America was started. Farming life - especially organically - is unique to all others. If you have eyes to see open them here.

If you are lucky you will spot the eagles soaring, the cranes nesting and the swans flying right above the house. Words can't express how beautiful the sun rises in this valley. It will change you to stay here. Smell the clover fields burgeoning in summer.

Spectacular getaway in the most scenic, comfortable, and charming home you can imagine.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed an extended stay at the Cottonwoods Farm. I will forever treasure my memories from our time there. We visited from South Florida and couldn't have had a more wonderful, refreshing time in the quiet, peaceful countryside setting. The bedding is sumptuous and the decor and artwork is just beautiful. The house is extremely clean and fully stocked with high quality linens, etc. My children loved fishing at the pond, playing with the vintage toys and games, and building sand castles at the little beach. Our family loved soaking in the hot tub overlooking the mountains and sunsets over the pond. We also did a lot of hiking in the Bozeman area and shopping and dining downtown-- the farm feels completely private out in the country but is so close to downtown you can easily drive in for a visit to the coffee shop. We LOVED our visit and cannot wait to visit again next summer!

Quiet & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Great location, fantastic scenery, and farm animals to boot. A place to unplug and be nearby Main Street Bozeman, or short drive to central Montana fishing.

Bring your own shampoo and cell phone for internet :)

Very comfy beds. Full kitchen for cooking, along with grill outside.

Great stay.

Montana Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My family came here for a weeks vacation to experience Montana and to get some much needed relaxation and recharging. This property was the perfect fit! It is on 40 acres and very private, yet only 10 minutes from Main Street, Bozeman. We spent many of our days just relaxing by the pond, visiting the farm animals and fishing the pond out front (caught lots of fish, including some nice sized brown trout). The owner is very kind and loved showing our kids the many animals around the farm. She has a love for the animals and it shows in how she cares for them and talks to them. Our whole family absolutely loved this part of the vacation. The home itself is warm and inviting and the there are beautiful views in every direction. We spent nearly every evening just relaxing by the fire pit next to the pond and enjoying the cool Montana air and beautiful snow capped peaks of the surrounding mountains. Montana in the Summer is unbeatable and this property, with all its amenities, close proximity to the great restaurants of Bozeman and a wonderful owner made our vacation magical. We have used VRBO numerous times and this property really is one of the best we have experienced. You will love it!

Why stay anywhere else??

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start! We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Cottonwood Farm. It is just minutes from downtown Bozeman, so it's incredibly convenient, but it's a beautiful, authentic farmhouse that feels far away from everything. Sally is a gem and made us feel so welcome from the very first moment. We were traveling with two toddlers and were pleasantly surprised to see the house is very kid-friendly. The stairs are carpeted, the porch is level with the grass, etc….it was easy for them to navigate. There is even a stash of old-school kids' toys and VHS tapes! The fishing in the pond kept the guys busy all week, and the whole group enjoyed seeing the animals every day. Rex the horse and the white turkey seemed to be the favorites :) We would stay here again in a heartbeat if we head back to Bozeman. Perfection.

Cottonwood is a slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Cottonwood is a slice of heaven. The farmhouse, vistas, animals, pond, veggie garden, Sallie...every single ounce of it is filled with charm. We spent 10 days there as a family & our young children couldn't get enough. In fact, we barely left the premises. Every morning we'd go feed Rex the horse, visit Goldee the Rooster, the chickens & turkeys, & say moooo to the cows. During the days the kids would splash in the pond, chase the ducks, look for Rubee the dog, run in the grass & play with the beautiful vintage toy collection at the house. We went fishing in the pond & Daddy caught a huge brown trout (& released him), which our son was especially thrilled about. During the evenings we grilled food, sat on the porch & enjoyed the beautiful view & quietude. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a nice meal.

Sallie is an absolute gem. She genuinely cares about Cottonwood & your experience there. She was totally respectful of our privacy, visiting us from time to time to check in, oftentimes surprising us with something new. A trip highlight was when Rex the horse had a birthday & Sallie arranged a little party for us in the barn, complete with cupcakes & thoughtful party favors. The kids will never forget that! Since we've been home, they haven't stopped asking when we can go back to Montana, & insisted on sending the animals a care package, including apples for Rex.

We may not be going back to Montana in the near future, but our time at Cottonwood is forever ingrained in our hearts. Thank you, Sallie & The Cottonwood Clan! We miss you.
