The Waterman House in Historic Downtown Bozeman

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + one convertible bed (futon), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a completely restored 1890s vintage historic home originally built by Bozeman pioneer Christopher Waterman. The home has wood floors, oriental carpets, 9-10 foot ceilings, and horse hair plaster throughout. It has been been completely restored and remodeled over the past few years. The home is outfitted with Montana made Mission style furniture. There is a hot tub and unique outdoor concrete dining area.

The home was located on Main Street in Bozeman until the 1960s when it was rescued from destruction by Ann and Roger Stradley who bought it and moved it several blocks to its current location. We purchased it in 2003 and remodeled the whole place, new kitchen, two new baths, and refinished all the original wood floors.

The home was once owned by the justice of the peace and several hundred Montanans were married in what is now the living room.

Home has exquisite views of the Bridger Mountains, the Gallatin Range, and the Spanish Peaks.

The Waterman House is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from MSU campus and all the experiences of downtown Bozeman.

**If you need additional space, the M Carriage house, adjacent to this property is available. See vrbo rental #346216 for more details on the M Carriage House**

You must be 25 years or older to rent this home.
