Our Guest Accommodations

We have 2 beautiful vacation homes that are for rent as guest accommodations. Both have been completely re-designed and remodeled (by us!) to offer our guests all private bedroom / bathroom suites in luxurious and artistically inspired lodging. Both are truly unique homes, designed and remodeled by artists, so of course you will be surrounded by original art and beauty...

"This house is amazing. We had our annual family of 11 trip to Yellowstone and stayed at your wonderful home. We could not have asked for a more breathtaking view and loved the open spaces within the home. Also loved that all 5 bedrooms had their own bath, (and all were large beautiful baths). We saw so much wildlife outside our door and Shirl is so accommodating. We will surely come back again!!” -Terri

The Nest

The property's breathtaking backdrop of Yellowstone National Park calls for elegantly rustic architectural spaces, so we designed and built them... some from scratch, the others remodeled. Now, we have 2 beautiful properties that we rent which are adjacent to one another - The Guest Lodge and The Nest. Our home and studio/gallery is just next door. 

As artists, we wanted to create something different, tasteful and creative, where our guests could experience the grand views of Yellowstone in a unique way, wrapped in luxury and rustic elegance. We appreciate beauty in nature, architecture, and art and feel more people should have that opportunity. So now, you can experience Yellowstone, nature and wildlife, along with original fine art, in a finely designed, deluxe, comfortable and relaxing space of your choice.

Take inspiration from the art and the views - relax, rejuvenate and take in your Yellowstone experience. Watch the birds and animals go about their daily habits...maybe see an osprey catch a trout, elk often swim across the river from Yellowstone Park to our property, an eagle may fly by at eye level. Soak in the sunset as you relax after dinner, hear the river while you sit on the couch reading, gaze at the stars from bed at night. This is Yellowstone at it's finest.


Designed, built and updated by artists - and it shows! The buildings fit into the landscape gracefully and live with the life around them, capturing both the views and the essence of living at the edge of Yellowstone. Come join us for an amazing Yellowstone experience, like no other.


All photos were taken from the property... amazing what we see at our spectacular riverside location!

John and Shirl can tell you where every screw or nail is because they put them there, they can tell you where each stone came from and how heavy it is. They know the stories of all the recycled logs and beams and barn wood they used to build because they stood on the land it came from, and pulled all the old nails, and brushed off the old moss.  Some of the beams once supported a local bridge, the logs were the rafters of a train mechanic shop in Livingston, the old boards protected a hay barn in Shields Valley. These homes have stories, past lives, soul!  Yes, John has been up on the roof working with a headlamp at night, running a power saw. Shirl put in way too many days in a row tiling new bathrooms to be ready when guests arrived. It hasn’t always been easy, but the results are worth the effort. Please come and enjoy our 'labors of love'. :-) 

"This house belongs in architectural digest!! Owners have thought of everything and were wonderful to deal with. Perfect home for families or just the adults. Highly recommend this property.” -Harry
