River Rose


Great getaway on the banks of the Yellowstone River; just a short drive from Yellowstone Park!

Bring your drift boat because there's a place to launch right out back!

Fish out the back door, hike and bike in the rugged Absaroka Mountains, drive into Livingston for some small town, western entertainment.

Fabulous dining and soaking at nearby Chico Hot Springs.

This home has limited Satellite Internet and is one of our few properties with air conditioning.

5 night minimum stay in the summer.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This western style ranch home enjoys a beautiful location on the Yellowstone River South of Livingston.

GENERAL LOCATION: Located in the center of the Paradise Valley, about 25 minutes south of Livingston, and just 25 minutes North of Yellowstone Park. Bozeman is an hour away.

BEDROOMS: The home has three bedrooms, all decorated very tastefully, with a western theme. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a large private bath. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. The third has two twin beds. There is a second full bath in the house just off the living area. For additional sleeping options, there is a day bed on the front porch. River Rose can accommodate up to seven guests.

KITCHEN: The large, open kitchen has a gas range and oven, a dishwasher and a microwave. There is lots of counter space, including a counter island area with bar stools for folks to sit and chat with the cook. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need as far as cookware and serving ware and there is a spice cabinet with all the basics.

DINING ROOM: The dining room table seats six comfortably. There is also seating for four at the kitchen bar counter and a table that seats 6 in the sun porch.

LIVING ROOM: The comfortable living room has a wood stove to warm up near on those chilly evenings, A/C for those hot afternoons and lots of couches and chairs to sit and relax and a flat screen television and DVD with satellite service. There is a small portable stereo that will play cd's and tapes and also an Ipod docking station.

SETTING, ACREAGE, VIEWS: River Rose is located on a small ranch in the Paradise Valley. As you enter the property, the long driveway weaves between irrigated green horse pastures until you reach the River Rose home, situated right on the banks of the Yellowstone River. A large grassy lawn area out front is perfect for kids to play and to enjoy the fantastic views of the Absaroka Mountains. There is a property caretaker that looks after the owners' horses, as well as the River Rose home. The caretaker's residence is far enough away that your privacy is ensured, yet he can be easily reached if there is a need. Out in back of the home, the river flows by just feet from the back door. A large grove of cottonwood trees provides some nice shady areas for picnics on those sunny days.

OUTDOOR AMENITIES: There is plenty of outdoor seating for barbecues, as well as a gas grill. Enjoy the views and the river frontage provided at River Rose! A natural boat launch allows you to start or end your float trip right at the house.

CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: The town of Bozeman and Gallatin Field Airport are just over an hour away.

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Fishing, hiking, rafting, horseback riding, visiting Yellowstone Park and just relaxing and getting away from it all! Chico Hot Springs, a charming, historic establishment, is just ten minutes away - with fine & casual dining, hot spring fed pools for soaking and even live music. The towns of Livingston and Gardiner are both about 25-30 minutes away with shopping, galleries, restaurants, etc.

Our experience with Mountain Home and the River Rose was like none other. The setting is set in the beautiful Absaroka Mtn. Range. The graceful Yellowstone River at your feet. Green horse pastures with a new born Colt. The cabin unlike any other with its graceful style and simplicity. Cleans and roomy for a whole family, yet cozy for a couple. Seated between Yellowstone and Livingston, the opportunity for beauty and shopping was abundant. Many nights spent just gazing into the foothills of the sun drenched mountains. The River Rose is definitely a vacation not soon forgotten.

We have been spending a week in the Paradise Valley almost every summer for over ten years. We normally rent a different cabin each year through the good folks at Mountain Home, and for us, River Rose was the best. It will be our first "repeat" booking of the same cabin. If we owned it I couldn't think of anything I would change,
Manager Response:

We had a fantastic few days at River Rose. Beautiful house in a beautiful location. We had Osprey nesting across the river and right outside the window and we enjoyed watching people go by in their little fishing boats.We visited Yellowstone from here, had an interesting evening at Chico Hot Springs and ate at The Old Saloon in Emigrant who served excellent food.
Manager Response:
Hello Christine - It sounds like you packed a LOT into your few days at River Rose and in the Paradise Valley. Good for you! Thank you for being our guests and we hope that you'll be able to come back soon. - Suzy

George and Karen were awesome! Had it not been for them, our vacation would not have been as successful and robust, as were the 3 days we spent here!
One of the most beautiful places I've been to!!

The house has the most beautiful views. The river was awesome and saw plenty of wildlife while we were there. The kitchen is perfect for making family dinners and gathering around the table. The home is centrally located (close to the entrance to Yellowstone)! Would definitely recommend staying here with a family.
Manager Response:
Hello Jackie - Thanks so much for being our guests and trusting us with your precious vacation time. We're thrilled to hear that River Rose was to your liking - we thought it would be! Again, thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon. - Suzy

Family reunion representing IN, TX & CA. Couldn't be happier with the accommodations. Beautiful surroundings and the house had absolutely anything and everything to make your stay comfortable. Loved the floor plan and the fact that you were not right on top of any neighbors. The caretaker lives at the front of the property and was most gracious and welcoming. Takes about 40 minutes to get into Yellowstone from the house but, that was okay as this sure beat any hotel! (plan to be at the Yellowstone gate when they open to avoid long lines to get in) Plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and a nice yard for the small kids to play in. There is a large grocery about 20 minutes away and a small convenience store with gas a few miles up the road. The house and scenery really does look like what is posted and does not do this place justice. Only thing I would say in warning is that the river behind the house has a very fast current so you would want to be cautious with small children or pets. We like to rock hunt and found several interesting pieces along the bank. The horses in the pasture were beautiful and enjoyable to watch. The place was spotlessly clean and was as well stocked as my own home. Loved that it has internet access and a washer and dryer. Wish we could have stayed longer. While there, I looked around at some of the other places we could have rented and quickly concluded that I had made the right decision by booking River Rose. The reservation staff was exceptional, as well. Be sure to go to the little bakery in Emigrant early to get fresh, made from scratch goodies! It was a looong drive for all of us but River Rose made it worth the trip!
