This well-built and spacious 4000 sq. ft. 5-bedroom home has privacy, beautiful views year round, park-like setting and creek, with loads of room for family or multi-family use. The house has a superb location, just 1.5 miles from Main St., a few blocks from the Museum of the Rockies and several restaurants, and less than a half mile to MSU. The house is located in one of Bozeman's few R-1 neighborhoods where frequent rentals are restricted, so contracts are for rental periods of 30 days or more. Rates are comparable to or less than similar listings, and multi-month discounts are available.

The house is adjacent to the Bozeman trail system, and the owners can often ski right from the house. The shallow spring-fed creek which runs through the lower back yard, is one of the tributaries of the Gallatin, which in turn joins the Jefferson and Madison rivers 30 miles west to form the headwaters of the Missouri.

"Spring Creek is the best! Paul is great to work with. We were very comfortable with 10 family members. We loved having a family dinner picnic outdoors by the stream. The broad porch, with an incredible view of the mountains, was a wonderful place for family get-togethers. The grounds and flower garden were in beautiful condition and much enjoyed. We loved being near both town and hiking trails. The house had a charming kitchen filled with everything you could need, plus rooms filled with family games, latest audio and visual equipment and delightful collections of books. The master bedroom and bath, with private access to the porch, was a special treat. Gilbert & Nancy, Jacksonville, Florida
"Your house had wonderful surprises! The kitchen was a great place for us to prepare our holiday meals. The piano was such a treat. Something for everyone. Great skiing, the gym, the yard, the porch swing. It is truly a work of art." Thank you for sharing. January '11
"Thank you, we loved your home. We gathered from New Hampshire, Arkansas, Maryland, Denmark and Bozeman to celebrate an 80th birthday and 55th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful place to come together. We enjoyed white water rafting, floating the Madison, Norris Hot Springs, the Farmers; Market, Music on Main, and great meals together." July '10
"We had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. We all enjoyed the views, wildlife, basketball and Bozeman. A great homebase for three generations." May '10
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Spring
Creek house. It was so comfortable and spacious and the kids really loved the
big yard! The house was very well set up with everything we could possibly
need and the instructions on everything was a huge help. We've stayed in
several houses over the past few summers and it's little things like that that
make a big difference in being comfortable in a strange house. Please give the
owners our best regards and thank you Paul, for all your help in making our
vacation a really nice one!"
