Chico Peak

Pets Considered

A peaceful setting in fields full of native grasses in the Paradise Valley - 480 acres of public land right behind the house!

Just minutes from world famous Chico Hot Springs - pools, fine dining, music and dancing.

The home has satellite internet for your use. Note: The internet is not suitable for Netflix or downloading etc. It will be fine for emails and surfing the web but the plan doesn’t have enough data to stream video. Due to the home's location, faster internet is not an option.

The home has three bedrooms and two and a half baths.

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 lower level. One bedroom has a king size bed and an attached bathroom and the bunk room has one queen futon and a single futon in a lofted area. This room also has shelves full of books for your enjoyment. There is also a sauna and 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 couple of barstools - for hanging out to chat with the cook! Off to the side is a dining table that seats six. 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.

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.

CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: It's about 4 miles to the town of Emigrant, which has a small general store, saloon, cafe, post office, and ice cream store. Livingston and Gardiner are both 20-30 minutes from the home. Gallatin Field Airport in Bozeman is the closest, and is about one hour away.

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.

We absolutely loved staying at Chico Peak! The drive to Yellowstone didn’t seem very long because of the great scenery. The view from the living room was amazing! Management made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Excited about planning our next trip with Mountian Home!

Chico Peak was a wonderful get away for our family of 5! We spent most of our days at Yellowstone and it was very nice to escape some of the crowds to our own space where we could view beautiful mountains from almost every window. The house has everything you need to make those wonderful vacation memories.
Manager Response:
Hi Stephanie and Eric - We're thrilled that Chico Peak made for a nice retreat for you after your Yellowstone adventures. It does feel so peaceful and "removed", and we love that river overlook location. Did you see the osprey that cruise up and down the river? Thank you for being our guests and we hope that you'll come back soon. - Suzy

This was our second stay at Chico Peak. The house has a really great set up for multiple families, and is in a perfect location almost midway between Yellowstone and Livingston. Being so close to Chico Hot Springs is also great.
Manager Response:
Hello Pamela - We're happy that you love Chico Peak so much that you wanted to return for a second visit. We agree that it's a really special location. Thanks for being our guests and we hope that you're thinking of visit #3. - Suzy

Chico Peak is a wonderful house, perfect for a group of family or friends. The location is fabulous, close to Chico Hot Springs, Emigrant, and not far from Livingston and Gardiner. There is a ton of great hiking around the area as well. House is super functional, has a nice patio for coffee in the morning, cocktails in the evening. It was clean and well cared for. Only complaint is that the internet wasn't great which meant that we couldn't stream movies (seems that the owner might pay up for better/faster internet and add the cost to the rental). Mountain Home Montana is the best agency in the world. They are super responsive to any issues, and do a terrific job making sure the homes the represent are nice and clean with thoughtful touches. Repeat customer!

My family of 5 stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. We stayed here for our stay at Yellowstone, which was about only 30 minutes away thanks to the 70 mph Montana speed limits. I was concerned about the distance to the park, but it wasn't too bad. The cabin is about 30 min south of Livingston, which is the closest city with a good size grocery store. The home was beautiful...wished we could have brought it back with us to MN. Excellent mountain views with lots of mule deer out and about. The patio was wonderful after a full day in the park. There was no A/C in the cabin, but it wasn't needed. We had temps In the 90s during our stay, but temps really cool down at night to keep it cool. Loved it here!
Manager Response:

Our family of 5 called Chico Peak home for 6 nights. It was very difficult to leave this peaceful retreat. After long days in Yellowstone, we were always happy to return to our house under the mountain. The view was breathtaking. I could have stayed in the home without any other adventures and been completely content. In addition to the mountain, we watched elk and enjoyed bird watching from the back patio. The home is situated on a lot of property so you will not have another rental or another home close to you. It is extremely private (which we loved). We journeyed almost everyday to the park which was about a 40 minute drive of even more beautiful scenery. The drive never got old as we enjoyed looking for wildlife and watching the Yellowstone River wind through the hills. This rental is everything I would expect and hope for with a family vacation. I would recommend to the rental management company adding general guidelines for the sauna. As they replied promptly to all our questions and it is easy to turn on, we didn't know how much water to add to get it started or what temperature is best to start with. We tweaked the temperature as we learned, but without general guidelines it was trial and error at first. The sauna was amazing after long hikes and my husband called it "the miracle cure." There is a great general store right down the road in Emigrant which we used everyday to stock the cooler. My husband also enjoyed fishing close to home and the angler store in Emigrant was really cool. We would recommend this property to all our family and friends and plan to do so as some plan to visit next year after hearing about our stay.

Thank you for your wonderful review of Chico Peak and Mountain Home Vacation Rentals! We love hearing when guests have thoroughly enjoyed one of our properties! It is great to hear that you enjoyed the home, scenery and wildlife in the area and took advantage of the sauna in the home. Thank you for the feedback on general sauna guidelines to have on site! We hope to see your family and friends this summer and hope you will return as well! Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

Chico Peak was everything and more than we expected. We being a danish couple on a five weeks roadtrip. We spent a full week in this wonderful house in a beautiful setting away from all the "business" of Yellowstone but still with easy acsess to the park. The service provided from Mountain Home Montana Vacation Rentals was super and we will never hesitate to rent a property through them another time! We loved every minute of our stay.
