A cozy cottage just 10 minutes south of Bozeman near Sourdough Canyon Trailhead.
Nestled in the foothills of the Gallatin Range with fantastic views of the entire valley.
Rent with Sourdough Ranch Main House for a group of up to 13 guests!
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This charming two-bedroom cottage enjoys a prime location south of Bozeman with fantastic mountain views, lots of peace and quiet, and hiking right out the back door. The original Black Bear Cottage was built in about 1920 and originally encompassed the area now represented by the living room, a small loft and the kitchen. The dining room was originally an open porch and the bathroom out the door to an outhouse! The building was completely renovated in 2013-14 and the original look, charm and character of the cottage were retained as much as possible and has been tastefully decorated for a comfortable lodge-like feel.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS: The cottage features a first level master bedroom with a king bed and master bath with a gorgeous stone tile bathroom and a spacious double showerhead stall. The second bathroom features a tub and shower combination and is located just off the main level living area. A large open area comprises the second floor which features a gorgeous queen-sized log bed, a nice twin pull out sofa and a great twin-sized sleeping platform in front of a window that sleeps one person comfortably, or is great for just for relaxing and reading a good book! This area is really kid friendly, too, with plenty of books, games and toys available. Both bedroom areas feature flat-screen SmartTV televisions with 12 local channels available.
KITCHEN AND DINING AREA: This fully equipped and well-designed kitchen has top of the line appliances and amenities, high-end countertops, and gorgeous Alder cabinets. An electric range, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and dishwasher make meal preparation convenient. An island separates the living and kitchen area and provides additional counter space. A dining room is just off the kitchen as well, seats 6 people, and is surrounded by windows that lend a wonderful lightness to the space.
LIVING AREA: The kitchen opens up into the living room with a gorgeous rock gas fireplace as the focal point, where a small leather sectional sofa allows you to enjoy a cozy evening by the fire. A mini-split cooling and heating unit is located here, as well as in both bedrooms, and helps maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the house at any time of the year. Air-conditioning is a rarity in Montana, so this feature is a great amenity!
SETTING, ACREAGE, AND VIEWS: A spacious deck with plenty of seating is on the front side of the home, where you’ll enjoy meals overlooking the valley! The home is immediately surrounded by an abundance of trees and bushes, and the opportunity to see wildlife in the area is incredible. Note: Views from the cottage are 95% stunning but Bozeman's drinking water facility is in the view shed on the property.
OUTDOOR AMENITIES: Take advantage of 240 acres and miles of private roads and trails that are part of this property. Bozeman Creek is at the bottom of the hill for fishermen, and Sourdough Trail is just up the road for hikers. Also, there is a small pond on the property that is stocked with brook trout!
CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: Downtown Bozeman is just six miles away.
NOTE: Winter guests will need 4 wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: Besides hiking and mountain biking right on the property and on nearby Forest Service trails, the stunning Hyalite Reservoir Recreation Area in the Gallatin National Forest is also a short drive away. Guests can spend time skiing at nearby Bridger Bowl, which is about 20 miles from the home. Horseback riding, rafting, golfing, tours of Yellowstone National Park, and everything that the town of Bozeman has to offer are at your finger tips.
