Staying at blue cone was the perfect family getaway! It has comfort... location... and space!!! Plenty big for a family of 5 adults! The staff at Mountain Home were most accomodating... providing for a carefree vacation!
This property is beautiful, bright, clean and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked, linens and towels are luxurious, bedrooms are spacious. Neighborhood is quiet, easy to walk around and playgrounds nearby are very well maintained and inviting.
Upstairs bedrooms are very warm. Numerous evenings the one on the left went up to 88-90 degrees (with plug-in floor fans at the door and window, and the ceiling fan on) which made it impossible for our son to sleep. Who wants to play musical beds on vacation? Master bedroom blinds are very high off the ground and do not cover the entire window -- also they are sheer. This means it was challenging to open and close them, and the tope portion of the window was exposed all the time, letting in full sun. None of the bedrooms had window blinds that block the light - they were all sheer. If you're sensitive to light, this could be an issue. We all woke up when the sun rose, which wasn't ideal being on vacation. There are electronic blinds with a remote for windows on the stairs to the top floor - why this isn't an option in the master bedroom is somewhat puzzling. With both issues, property management was sympathetic but offered no solutions.
We stayed at a different property last year in the same complex, which had proper window blinds and air conditioning. For this reason, I will choose NO for 'Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?'.
While we have traveled to Montana in the summer months, this was our first trip to Bozeman and our first trip to Montana in the winter. Traveling and seeing new places is something we love to do as a family. Which means we have seen a lot - both good and sometimes not so good. And I have to say we were impressed with this home. The description is true to what we found when we arrived but in retrospect, the description does not do justice in describing the details, the cleanliness and the beautiful location of the property. The owners have thought of every last detail - from laundry soap to a crock pot or waffle maker; from a backpack for use on the ski hill or for a hike to q-tips & even a drying rack --- all available for our use as guests. We cooked in every night and the kitchen was very well equipped & included a pantry of spices and tons of staple items. Also loved having a grill! It was only a 15 minute drive to Bridger Bowl, a quick five minute drive to groceries at Walmart or tons of restaurants/coffee/cafes. While the main purpose of our trip was to ski, we did notice many people walking on what appeared to be a quite extensive trail system through and around the neighborhood which was very quiet and peaceful. Upper bedrooms had balconies with chairs and great views of surrounding mountains - although the chilly weather kept us inside, relaxing in front of the fire place after a great week of skiing. We even lucked out and had an amazing day with 6" of fresh powder!!! While the kids (15 & 17 yrs) loved having their own bedrooms upstairs (which also included their own bathroom), the soaking tub and dual-headed walk-in shower in the master bath was "called" the minute we got home every evening!
We would definitely recommend staying at this home and if we pass through this summer on our way to Glacier, we will look forward to a few nights here :-)
The house was very comfortable, tastefully decorated and had modern amenities. It is in an odd neighborhood, don't expect something quaint.It work well for us while we skied Bridger.
Clean, spacious, attention to details, beautiful, comfortable, well equipped, every amenity including excellent location for Bridger Bowl Ski Area and downtown Bozeman. This townhouse has it all. Our family enjoyed our week and highly recommend it to those looking for a special stay in Bozeman. It is located in a quiet, family neighborhood close to a trail and stream.
The Blue Pine Cone is a first class rental and I would recommend it to anyone interested. The unit was well equipped, clean and comfortable. I we are back in the Bozeman area in the future we will consider staying there again.
