Bozeman is currently one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. And if you’ve ever flown or driven into this beautiful mountainous city, you’ll probably know why – and may have felt pulled to stay too!

I never fully appreciated Bozeman for its proximity to outdoor activities until I met my husband, an avid cross country skier, runner, hiker, and biker. The city really is one of the best places to visit in Montana.

Bozeman truly is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise — there are numerous things to do here. If you want to see Bozeman for yourself, why not take a trip and stay for a few days, weeks, or even months?

1. Black Bear Run (The Best Bozeman Airbnb)

This Airbnb home tops the list as the best Airbnb in Bozeman, Montana because of its location and surroundings. A cosy cabin in the woods is what most people imagine when they think of visiting Montana, and this one delivers perfectly.

This one bedroom, one bathroom house can fit up to four people. Making it perfect for couples, a few friends, or a smaller family.

The charming cabin is near the beautiful Hyalite Creek amongst the trees, giving you a full nature experience. You have great creek and tree views to enjoy from the lofted bedroom, living room, and back porch. Plus, the living area has a wood-burning stove for additional heat and a romantic ambiance.

Other than sharing the driveway with the homeowners, you have the entire cabin to yourself.

Best of all, this Superhost property is one of the closest Bozeman listings to Big Sky, just 40 minutes away. Plus, there are a lot of nature activities close by in Hyalite Canyon. Depending on the season, these include hiking, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and fishing.

2. Mountain Modern Loft

This beautiful apartment is one of my personal favourites because of its close proximity to Bridger Bowl ski resort; 14 miles north of Bozeman. Yet, it’s still just 2 miles from downtown Bozeman too.

This area is quiet and full of beautiful homes with mountain views that you can enjoy by driving, hiking, or biking.

With two bedrooms and one bathroom, this space is versatile for parties of up to four people.

The apartment is located right on Bridger Creek and an extensive trail system. You can hike, run, and bike in the summer on these trails. From the front door, it’s simple to get to Story Mill Park, (a great activity for kids in winter or summer), or the “M” trail head, (another local favourite hike).

What’s more, you can golf in the summer, and cross country ski in the winter, at the nearby golf course.

The Mountain Modern loft is hosted by two Superhosts, Pete and Jill – and their 4 dogs – that live in the downstairs home. The loft is completely separate.

It lives up to its modern title with fast WiFi and self check-in available to keep you connected and comfortable. Learn more about this beautiful Airbnb in Bozeman, here

3. In-Law Apartment on Beautiful Horse Property

If you’re looking for a unique Montana experience, you might consider a farm stay. This option is for animal lovers that want to experience life on a real farm.

Thanks to its location, you’ll get the full countryside experience whilst still being close to all the Bozeman amenities just 10 miles away – so long as you have a car, which is recommended.

Bozeman Vacation Rentals

The rental property includes an in-law apartment above the garage.

You can expect to interact with horses, dogs, chickens, and cats, so this stay is not for anyone with allergies! The apartment sleeps up to 4 people, making it ideal for singles, couples, or families. Plus, this apartment is dog friendly.

This is the ideal location to unwind and relax, watch the sun rise and set, enjoy a hammock nap, interact with the animals, or socialize by the fire pit in the summer!

4. Bozeman Trail Inn – Yellowstone Room

The Bozeman Trail Inn is a great option for visitors that want to be in the heart of it all. This location is close to Main Street and all of its shops, restaurants, and bars.

This private room can accommodate two people. You can also add a floor mattress to accommodate up to three people in this space. Plus, you have access to the kitchen, living room, and outdoor spaces.

The Yellowstone room is a great resting spot to return to after all of your daily outside adventures. You have three different outdoor areas to hang out in. Depending on your mood, you can enjoy mountain views, expansive fields, or sit at the fire pit to roast marshmallows.

For activities, there’s a playground in the neighbourhood which is perfect for families. The Gallatin Trail System is close by; making it easy to get out for a walk, run, or bike ride. Plus, in the winter you can cross country ski. If there’s enough snow, you can head out straight from the driveway.

5. Papa’s Tree House (Off-Grid Bozeman Airbnb)

Papa’s Treehouse is a great option for those that want to be away from it all. This treehouse is outside of town, and provides a unique off-grid experience in the trees – I would consider it rustic glamping to be honest.

This one room “house” has four beds that can accommodate up to five people. It’s fun for people of all ages, and is great for singles, couples, and families alike.

areas to stay in Bozeman

Keep in mind that you’ll need to hike to the treehouse about a half mile with everything you need for your stay, such as food and water. The hosts, Dale and Jackie, can help you get organized and settle in if needed.

Although it has no water or running electricity, the home is quite cosy. You still have to use a compost toilet and a comfy bed. You’re practically guaranteed to have a great night’s rest in the cool mountain air. Find out more about this unique Bozeman Airbnb, here.

6. Bridger View Bunkhouse

This home is centrally located, making it easy to get around Bozeman. Plus, like most listings in Bozeman, it’s close to a Dinosaur Park – one of my daughter’s favourites, and trail systems for further exploring.

The Bridger View Bunkhouse is a great option for smaller groups. It can accommodate up to 3 people in its one bedroom. This is one of the cheapest listings in Bozeman, despite its brand new furnishings.

Bozeman Airbnb

I love this listing the most because it has tons of great perks, as long as you are a smaller group. These include free bikes for cruising around Bozeman, (the only listing with this option!), trails from the front door, and great views of the Bridger Mountain range.

No matter what season you’re staying, there’s always something close by to do. Click here to learn more and book your stay at this centrally located Bozeman accommodation. 

7. The Cowboy Cottage

The Cowboy Cottage was built in 1945 and has kept its unique vintage charm, with a few modern modifications, that make it a comfy and pleasant home away from home. It features genuine cowboy artwork, antique furnishings, and high-quality bedding.

This listing is great for up to four people. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom at your disposal during your stay in this private space.

9. Ross Creek Cabin – Amazing Mountain View

This is the most expensive Airbnb on our list, but it’s also one of the most beautiful. The Ross Creek Cabin is located in Belgrade, which is about 20 minutes from downtown Bozeman.

When you see the views from this cabin, you’ll know it’s worth every penny. This cabin was built with large windows to take in the natural light and breath-taking scenery. It’s a studio space, but can accommodate up to four people, with the addition of a futon in the living room.

10. Farm Stay in Belgrade

Farming is a huge part of Montana culture, particularly in Bozeman. So of course, there are two farm stay options in this article. This unique stay is offered on a 50 acre start-up farm.

If you want to experience the real deal, this is for you. In addition to goats, ducks, turkeys, and chickens, there’s also a good chance you’ll see local wildlife such as deer, elk, birds, and foxes here. You’re welcome to gather your own eggs for a fresh breakfast during your stay too.

The property boasts a natural spring that runs through the property and a pond that can be used for ice skating in the winter. The pond is also set up as a mini beach area with a gazebo, fire pit and BBQ to enjoy.

The listing is for a two bedroom, one bath in-law suite. While it indicates up to six people, it’s best for up to four adults and two children. There’s another attached one bedroom apartment on the property that you can book as well.

As far as amenities go, you’re still within 20 minutes to Bozeman. Plus, the superhosts can direct you to a local trout fishing hole that’s just 5 minutes away. The hosts are also local outfitters and offer adventure tours, so you can inquire further about activities with them too.
