About Ed & Diane Grunseth

Ed & Diane have been self-employed artists throughout their life. Diane paints in oil. Ed makes furniture and sculpture. Their small family business - The Kristian Brunsdale Studio - is named after Ed's Norwegian grandfather.

Ed & Diane Grunseth purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Ed & Diane Grunseth chose Wilsall

We moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Montana to turn the clock back in a rural alpine setting with mountains, water and trees - the Montana dream! We're still near civilization with the towns of Livingston (35 miles away) & Bozeman (50 miles away) that have amenities such as the university in Bozeman, a very good hospital, excellent art galleries and great dining. Our place has allowed us to build and expand our studio, enjoy the outdoors with its abundant wildlife - it's a 24/7 vacation for us!

What makes this cabin unique

One walk on the property and we were sold because of the one acre pond, Horse Creek running along its border and the heavy Doug Fir forest for us to play in. An additional bonus is the great neighbors doing a wide variety of things from ranching to the arts (painters, writers, photographers & more) to cowboys and the fun and excitement that Wilsall brings with it's seasonal events and just hanging out. And there's road trips!

Lovely private cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for two. Very quiet and comfortable. It was nicely furnished with attention to detail and very clean. Diane was very helpful and easy to reach. Close to Livingston and about one and a half hour to Yellowstone national park.

Thanks very much to the owners for a wonderful stay.
