Story Cottage

Bozeman Montana

Listing Type: Vacation Home

How would you like to stay in a home that was also the little candy store on the corner' It is told the living room with its leaded glass windows was once a small shop; the ring of a bell brought the proprietor through the French doors to sell penny candy to the neighborhood children.

Two bedrooms with queen beds, dining, living room and kitchen, pantry and bath plus laundry room make up this cozy and bright Victorian Cottage for up to 4 persons. New and selected period pieces along with Phone and Cable TV/VCR complement the interior decor.

A private fenced yard with grill completes the charming corner lot.Located in the Historic Bozeman Park District, it is one tree shaded block from the lovely Cooper Park, a gathering place for walkers, friends playing Frisbee or a picnic. Centrally located just five blocks from Main St. shopping, it's only a half mile to Montana State University and Aquatic Center, 1.5 miles to the Museum of the Rockies, fifteen minutes to the hot springs or skiing with Yellowstone only 1.5 hours away and great fishing everywhere up the Gallatin River to Big Sky and beyond.

Story Cottage is an 'important element in the streetscape of seven small turn of the century houses.' The Park District was originally deeded to Nelson Story in 1872. One of the earliest settlers of Bozeman, Story drove the first herd of cattle up from Texas in 1866 and was the last private 'Freighter' to supply Union Fortifications along the 'Bloody Bozeman Trail' when that area was returned to the Sioux nation in 1868.
