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!

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!
Manager Response:
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?? - Suzy

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 couldn’t stay longer!!!
Manager Response:
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 longs, but maybe a return visit? We'd love to have you as our guests again! - Suzy and the Mountain Home crew
