The Coziest Room in Town!

The Garden Cottage is a wonderful free-standing one-room suite with no noises from the room next door because there is no room next door. Settle into this historic neighborhood and you’ll be just 3 blocks from downtown Bozeman’s collection of restaurants, galleries and brew pubs.

This converted Model-A barn is located in the backyard with private yard, alley entrance, and alley parking spot. It has been fully remodeled to include vaulted ceilings with skylights, a full kitchen, gas fireplace and clawfoot bathtub.

The kitchen, living area, and bedroom are in one space and high ceilings with skylight and a big, happy plant overseeing the spacious room. There is a small, traditional bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower, and a closet for storage.

A cast iron gas fireplace easily heats the well-insulated studio. There is a small tv with digital antennae and a dvd player, and of course full-fledged internet service.

The entrance has a new large deck with sitting table and a bbq grill facing the wild gardens maintained by the owners. From the entrance gate in the alley, the foot path meanders under a huge shade tree, past the flower gardens, and to a world record size rhubarb plant welcoming you to the door!

Pets are permitted with a $50 fee per pet and agreement to our pet rules.

One of the best things about the Garden Cottage is how close it is to downtown and the desirable, historic pars of Bozeman. It’s easy to leave the car parked and get to much of what Bozeman has to offer, and we also deliver rental bikes to your door as an additional option at roughly half the price of other bike rental options.

    Garden Cottage is a great cabin, solid yet airy with a high roof – a really beautiful design – set in a wild and pretty garden in a calm residential area. We met Paul, and the two owners, and they were all extremely friendly and charming. We would definitely stay in Garden Cottage again. We were there for a week for a working holiday and didn’t rent a car so we walked miles. Main Street has some good stores in particular the Country Book Store and the Co-op near the Gallatin History Museum. The Museum of the Rockies has the best ever dinosaur exhibition – worth the trip to Bozeman alone – and the Gallatin History Museum really places the town in the history of the West, and of Yellowstone. At a loose end a couple of evenings we went to the Ellen Theatre where they were showing a season of classic western films, and the musical Oklahoma! We watched Destry Rides Again – thrilling to see James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich on a big screen. We went to see Oklahoma! with an open mind (not big fans of musicals) but it was absolutely fantastic. The local farmer who played Curly (apparently his debut) is a total star. He has the most amazing voice! We have spent our subsequent holiday in Yellowstone National Park singing songs from the show to keep the grizzlies at bay – so far with great success

    Lovely stay in Bozeman at the Garden Cottage!

    The room was cozy and well kept with a very comfortable bed. Such a breeze to walk around the city (I didn’t have a car & was here for a work conference downtown.)

    The only struggle I had was to find it initially as my Lyft driver dropped me off on the street in utter darkness and my cell phone had no service. When I found the alley and entry, it was lit up with solar path lights and LEDs around the doorway to clearly indicate the charming place I would be residing for the week!

    Would definitely stay here again upon my next Bozeman visit!

      We’re glad you found the lighted path and enjoyed the Garden Cottage! This is an ongoing challenge which is why everywhere we put the address we also specify the necessity to use the alley access since there is no access from the street side. We love that you avoided renting a car which is becoming easier and easier with Lyft and Uber – most Bozeman Cottage rentals are within 5 blocks of the core of downtown Bozeman as well as many other destinations, part of what makes it worth it to stay in the core areas of town! And there’s always the in-house bicycle rentals when you need to go a little further.

      We look forward to your next visit. Thanks, Paul

We had a great time in Bozeman and your Garden Cottage was the perfect place to stay. I hope to make it up there again.

I simply loved this charming cottage! The first step inside gave me the feeling of warm hospitality. A very comfortable bed awaited me. The bedding was soft and cozy with ample pillows, blankets and comforter. A small rocker gracefully placed by the fireplace, was soothing. The kitchen boasted cookware, dishes and utensils far beyond my expectations! Windows in every direction never allowed this cottage to feel small. A great plus was having two doors to access, a yard, porch and parking space at the gate. The Skylights that streamed in the daily weather report, and a train heard occasionally moving through Bozeman made me feel I was living in my own Montana home! Location is superb for anyone who wants to be able to walk a few blocks to Bozeman’s Historic Downtown District. This rental is a gem in terms of inner beauty and charm coupled with neighborhood ambience and location. Most of all, your hospitality and assistance during my stay was incredible. Lots of personal touches. Thank you so much!

Hi Paul, Well, we just had the greatest time in and around Bozeman fishing, hiking, hanging out. And the cottage was the perfect place for us, truly our home away from home. We did borrow a few raspberries for breakfast!…..the stay in the cottage was the highlight of our trip…quiet, quaint, very comfortable. Thanks very much for everything! We’ll definitely recommend the cottage to anyone headed in your direction.

There are 3 words that we feel describe this cottage perfectly. Quaint, cozy and convenient. We felt like we were tucked away far from town yet we were just a short walk to downtown Bozeman. For us this was a great place to stay to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. A very cozy and romantic cottage.

by Kathy and Kirk of Pottstown, PA, Summer ’08

Just want to say thanks for everything. The cottage was great, and Paul the owner and David next door were exceptionally nice.
