Another Wonderful Stay in a Mountain-Home Cabin

My mom and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in at Madison Valley Overlook! Having stayed at several Mountain-Home rentals in the past 7 years, this did not disappoint. In fact, each stay keeps getting better and better. The views from the deck (whether you are lounging at the picnic table or in the hot tub) are phenomenal! The interior of the cabin is a dream - beautiful great room and kitchen, huge master bed and bathroom, and amazing gas stove for all of our cooking. Private location, yet minutes from Ennis if you need to grab groceries, etc. We took one day to drive Gravelly Range Road (a must if you have the time) but most of our time was spent on the deck looking at the Madison Range or the stars. Nice touch to have wifi to connect "home" if you want to. If you are looking for a rental with a stellar view and privacy, this is the place! We already booked our next Mountain-Home cabin!

My wife and I had never been to Montana together, and it has been on my bucket list for the last 10 years. Somehow I found the Mountain-Home website, and found what appeared to be our perfect destination, the Madison Valley Overlook. We wished a luxurious secluded cabin with outstanding views, and this was accomplished and then some! Our first impression of the home was REALLY, this is going to be an outstanding week! The house was neat and clean, plenty of storage and living space. The master bedroom is large and comfortable, and had plenty of storage for both of our belongings. Great views with the window and patio shades drawn open, only at night; Montana air conditioning you know.  We enjoyed the daily drive up to our home for the week. The road was not problem for our rental, a Ford Expedition. I would not recommend trying to drive a sports car to this destination though. We also had a fun time exploring the road past our home which was all vacant land. We read all the posts that you should not rely on GPS to reach this destination however, we carry Verizon which got us there just fine. There were dead zones in the state, but to this particular location, no issue. This is a great destination for a family retreat as the home contains all the amenities needed. The home is centrally located to outstanding destinations, and is certainly a location in which we will rediscover in the future. I highly recommend, and HAVE highly recommended this location, as well as company to others!

This was without a doubt the best cabin to stay in while in Montana! The views from anywhere in or around the house were amazing and the home itself was impeccable. Very clean and well stocked to say the least and every amenity was thought of to make this property second to none. Only about an hour from yellowstone and 3 hours from the grand Tetons, however with the scenic roads, it felt like 5 minutes. The local town of Ennis offers excellent restaurants and friendly store fronts. We saw a large variety of wildlife including magpie, deer, pronghorn antelope, ground squirrels, and a den of foxes every day. To say the least, this was a trip that the team at mountain home helped make amazing and memorable.

We loved our stay at this beautiful home. The views are amazing. The home is spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a loft with bed and piano, dining area, large family room, laundry area and a great kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked with everything to prepare and serve meals. There is a large deck with a BBQ, spa and patio table. Everything is very comfortable and relaxing. The home overlooks the valley and is very private and peaceful, which is exactly what we were looking for. It was nice hearing and seeing birds, deer, bunnies and ground squirrels during our stay. The dirt road leading to the home is very private and a little bumpy but we didn't mind the bumps. The home is close to town and fishing is nearby. If you are looking for a beautiful home with amazing views.... this is it!

We stayed at the Madison Valley Overlook for 21 days in July 2016 and wished we could have stayed longer. The house is exactly as advertised, but there is no way to describe the beautiful views and the peaceful feeling that you experience while there. The house is beautiful and very well appointed. The Master Bedroom offers wonderful privacy from the other bedrooms which are also private from the main living quarters. We enjoyed the hot tub almost every night. The deck is a a great place to sit and read and enjoy morning coffee or evening wine. The house is secluded without being isolated. A 10 minute drive to Ennis which has everything you need. Upon arrival, the outdoor grill wasn't working properly - we had a new one within 24 hours. The beds were unbelievably comfortable. WiFi was great which allowed us to do a little work while there (that is if you can tear yourself away the views). I cannot say enough good things about the house and the rental experience. Virginia City is a short drive away as well as the Gravely Mountain Range and outstanding fishing in the Madison River. I highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to experience the friendliness and peacefulness of Montana.

Madison Valley Overlook felt very welcoming and comfortable. It had everything we needed and more. Loved our 10 days at this house! Views, wildlife, peace and quiet, lovely amenities. We felt like beloved guests in someone's nicely furnished home. The wood floors are great. Loved the dirt road, the sagebrush, the wildflowers, prairie dogs. A pronghorn walked by the porch one day. Kitchen was very well stocked and had nice appliances! Bathrooms were lovely and clean. We used the hot tub every evening. Our 15 year-old daughter enjoyed the piano in the loft. Drove past a few nice homes (neighbors' homes which you can see from the deck) on the dirt road that leads to this house. My husband is a fly fisherman (wading), so he drove about 30 minutes to get to various fishing spots on the Madison River--he favored the Palisades and Ruby Creek areas. He also went to Beartrap Canyon a couple of times. We stocked up at the grocery store in Ennis and ate most meals at the house, but enjoyed a delicious steak dinner at McAllister Inn. There was a nicely stocked pantry and kitchen cabinets had spices, oils, even cereal! We were there in late May/early June with some rainy, chilly days so we enjoyed the gas fireplace which warmed up the house quickly and gave it a cozy feeling. Plenty of books, guides, and magazines to read. Internet worked fine. Close to Virginia City & Nevada City, but we just passed through there on our drive to Dillon (beautiful scenery the entire way). Drove to Yellowstone NP twice, and saw the Tetons as well. Also a pretty drive to Bozeman from here. This area is a photographer's dream. Took one last look back through the big living room windows as we were heading out the front door for the final time, and I had a lump in my throat saying goodbye to this house and these soul-filling surroundings! And we surely miss the delicious taste of Montana water!
