Rocking H: Spacious 3-Bedroom Home with Hot Tub

Location

Bozeman, MT, United States

Description

The Rocking H Ranch House sleeps up to eight in three bedrooms and features a hot tub, lots of privacy, and mountain views. There are actually four bedrooms to choose from (see photos), one of which has bunk beds and a queen bed. The Rocking H is an ideal home and space for a family or a romantic, quiet get-away. There is lots of space for people to spread out in three sitting areas. The yard is the size of two football fields with parking for six cars and even a large RV. Parking inside the two-car garage is also available.

It’s the perfect base camp. The Rocking H is 15 minutes from Bozeman’s Main Street and 15 minutes from the Bozeman’s international airport (BZN). The west entrance of Yellowstone National Park in West Yellowstone is a 1.5-hour drive through beautiful Gallatin Canyon. Big Sky Ski Resort is 48 minutes away, and Bridger Bowl Ski Area is a close 30-minute drive. Rafting/floating/fishing on the Madison River is 25 minutes away.
Bozeman Hot Springs, where you can soak in healing hot water, is about 5 minutes away by car. The Rocking H is a 10-minute drive from a public 3-par golf course and fishing on the famous Gallatin River. Guests are given a code to enter the home, and the code changes with each new guest.

The Rocking H is outfitted with everything you need to cook for a large group. In addition to a large dining table near the kitchen which can seat 10-12 if you have guests, there is kitchen table which seats 4, and a kitchen bar which seats 2. There are 12 place settings of western-style dishes plus plastic dishes for little tykes.

The lower level of the house is always cool in the summer, but there are three standing room air conditioners on the main level to cool it down on the occasional hot day. There are heaters in all rooms and a cozy gas fireplace you can run anytime for that fun fireplace feel. There is a wood-burning fireplace on the main level. Just let your host know if you want to have a fire.

The full lower level with large windows has a pool table, foosball, bar, and the gas fireplace mentioned above. Kids love the lower-level bunk room that sleeps four. They think it is their own cabin, so don't tell them it is just brown paneling.

The Rocking H has three TVs. Each television has local channels, Roku systems with Sling for basic cable channels and sports, and Netflix and Amazon Prime for movies.

The original homeowner was a local college rodeo rider, a Montana State Senator, and one of the first landowners in the area when farmland was turned into building lots years ago. The house is still used for extended family gatherings. The grandkids won't allow remodeling, so guests should expect a cozy nostalgic feel in this clean, functional, spacious, and set-up-for-entertainment country get-away. This ranch-style home might feel like a trip back to the 70’s in Southwestern Montana. This home has not been remodeled since it was built, and it's holding up well as the images suggest. Complete with wood paneling and carpeted floors, the home is authentic, clean, and comfortable.

In addition to the large hot tub on the back deck, there are two tables, an umbrella, a sunbed, and a gas barbecue grill. Watching the sunrise or the alpine glow on the mountains at sunset from the hot tub on the back deck is a pretty nice way to spend some time. Kids enjoy playing on the old horse wagon in the horse pasture out back, and it makes great family photos.

Up to two dogs are welcome. Guests will pay a pet fee. Sadly, cats are not allowed due to allergies. Horses are welcome to stay in the fenced pasture behind the house!
