The Boat Shed-Dont Let The Name Fool You!

Would highly recommend this beautiful property! All the right touches and furnishings to truly make this a home away from home...even the use of the garage! Spacious rooms with beautiful, very comfortable furniture and bedding. Fantastic views! Being an hour away from Yellowstone offered serenity after our fun filled days. White water rafting, horseback riding, touring an old West mining town and fishing kept us busy for our 7 day stay. Our only regret....we couldnt stay longer!!!
Oh Betty, we're so happy that Boat Shed was a good fit for your summer stay with Mountain Home. We agree that it's a really special home in a really special location. We're sorry, too, that you could not stay longer, but maybe a return visit? We'd love to have you as our guests again! - Mountain Home Team

Absolutely Great Property

We enjoyed our vacation with children and grandchildren in this most ideal location. They spent hours in the little creek that is in the front yard - so great for children. Beautiful location with immaculate yard and great view of mountains. Inside of this home was perfect -great floor plan and very cool downstairs on hot days. In the master bathroom there was a giant walk-in shower that was A plus! Recommend highly - we have been renting through Mountain Home for more than ten years and this was one of the best properties! None of their rentals will ever disappoint!
Aw, Larry, we're blushing. Thank you for your very kind words about Mountain Home's service. And we of course agree with you about the beautiful new Boat Shed. It's a top-notch, charming property that we're so excited to be sharing with guests. So...can we start helping you plan for a stay in 2019?? - MH Team

Large enough for 8 but also cozy for 2!

My husband and I stayed at Boat Shed in early April. Although the house sleeps 8, it felt cozy for just the two of us. We enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen and the lovely fireplace. The bed was super comfortable and the shower luxurious! We saw lots of wildlife - deer, fox, Western Bluebirds to name a few. We have rented with Mountain Home for more than 20 years and have found their service to be excellent!
Hello Heidi - We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our new Boat Shed as much as you've liked other accommodations with us. We agree that it's a very special spot with fabulous finishes. We're quite certain that Boat Shed will become a guest favorite in the Madison Valley. - MH Team

My family and I stayed in this house, and it was AMAZING to say the least! There were 9 of us, the toddler bed hopped every night, and it was just the right size for us. The pictures do the house no justice! It felt so big to all of us. The downstairs family room was perfect for the night time when it was hotter upstairs because of the cooking in the kitchen. It was well stocked and clean when we got there...and the yard! Our dogs came with us and loved every minute of it! It was far enough to see the stars at night, but close enough to the city of Ennis that we didn't feel completely out in the middle of nowhere. We will be sure to book this house again in the future! We all loved it so much! Thank you Mountain Homes for making it so easy to book, and to share the information with all of the family!
Jennifer, thank you so much for your review! Boat Shed is one of those houses that just sticks with you! It is a gem. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and we can't wait to have your family back with us! -Krista/Mountain Home Team
