The Trout House on the Shields River

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

536 Highway 89 North Livingston, MT 59047 United States

This completely updated and remodeled home sits on 10 acres with breathtaking mountain views in every direction. Less than 1 hour drive to Yellowstone and a 10 minute driver to Livingston and Clyde Park, this home is the perfect place to feel local, relax, watch wildlife and fish.

In the winter, you can take the backroads to Bridger Bowl Ski Area on the east slope of the Bridger Mountain range. It’s a memorable and beautiful “less traveled” road in Montana well worth the drive (only 33 miles in a car).

Stunning 4 bedroom home just North of Livingston.

Relax on the large deck and enjoy the mountain views and visiting wildlife.

Fish the Shields River on the property or the Yellowstone River just minutes away.

    David R from N/A, CO recommends this vacation rental

    Great home on the Shields River. Fully equipped kitchen and comfortable spacious living space. Beautiful view of the Crazy Mountains from the living room window and river access from the property. Close to Bozeman Airport. A little over an hour to Yellowstone National Park on scenic Highway 89. Minutes to downtown Livingston for shopping fine dining and some great western hospitality. I hope to stay here again in the future!

    Mark T from Butte, MT recommends this vacation rental

    The house is well appointed and nestled on the banks of the Shields however it is hard to access from this location due to a steep bank however if you are a fisherman you can figure it out! Rooms are comfy, bbq is not very large, kitchen is wonderful but could use some serving platters and larger pots for bigger groups. Definitely recommended.

    • Manager Responded on 8/12/2019

      Thanks for the helpful feedback. We would be happy to add some new items to our kitchen to better accommodate our next large group! We hope you all come back for another visit!
