Aside from it's premier location, the home has great access and recreation opportunities for summer and winter adventurers! XC skiing around Livingston and Yellowstone National Park, 35 minutes from Bridger Bowl, fall hunting, summer fishing ... the opportunities are endless!

The home and property is somewhat of a landmark to locals and guests, most knowing the "red house at Carters Bridge," as it is so beautiful and unique it has been seen in films, such as Walking Out. It's also a fantastic wedding venue and often used as a location for portraits and pictures.

If the exterior isn't enough to make you feel like you have stepped into a dream, the inside of this gorgeous and immaculately maintained home will convince you that this is your perfect vacation home. Originally built in 1901, was moved to it's current location and remodeled completely in 1995, the house has all the updates of a modern home, with the feel and coziness of a time gone by - even central air conditioning!

    Patricia G from tarpon springs, FL recommends this vacation rental

    Due to a change in our original rental, where the owners decided to cancel the rental, less then 48 hours before our arrival, We booked this on 6/1/2019. Turnkey Property Management , needed to find us (7 adults) a place to stay. the location was about 20 miles further away from where the original rental was. We were lost for words to say the lease,after getting 7 adults to agree on a location and having the carpet pulled out from under us all.All though the cottage served us, there was compromise that we all needed to was 1.500 sq.feet smaller !!!! than he original rental. that being said,Turnkey P.M..did their best to satisfy us all. Respectively , Pat Grippe
