My beautiful 1927 cottage with hardwood floors throughout is small town Americana at its best. Stroll to the movies, dinner, or a tavern. On I-90 minutes from Billings and 45 miles to Red Lodge's skiing and hiking. Self catering. Sleeps up to 8.

The space

Room 1 is bright and cheery. It has a wonderful walk in closet with a small three paned window for light. The room features a queen sized bed with a lovely white lacquered headboard with brass accents. You will also find two antique chairs and an antique dressing table and mirror. Built in 1927 by a local railroad employee, Laurel Ties has it's roots, literally, in railroad history. While the basement of the home was hand dug by local boys, support timbers for the home are actual railroad bridge timbers. The 20's were a time of change, reflected in its architecture. Original cast iron gilded light fixtures, crystal glass door knobs, rich colors and hardwood floors of my home show the craftsmanship and style of the era. While updating I tried to find vintage style fixtures and furnishings to keep the feeling strong. It's three bedrooms and 1.5 baths comfortably fit 6 people, 8 if a couple want to bunk in the living room.

Guest access

In addition to a private bedroom, guests have a shared kitchen, living room and bathroom. The shared fenced back yard with cement patio is a great place for warm summer evenings. The stairs to the attic as well as the attic itself are off limits, as is the basement. Any bedroom not your own is also off limits, as well as the garage/carriage house in back and the VW beetle parked on the patio.

Interaction with guests

I love Montana and am excited to share what I know with you. From shopping to hiking, camping and fishing, I probably have a suggestion for you. Or if you want to sit and visit, play music and share stories, I'm up for that too. I live a short drive away, but work in town and will pop in to check on how you are getting along and tend to the house, but I will respect your privacy.

Other things to note

There is a blow dryer in the bathroom and an iron and ironing board in the mud room. A small sewing kit is located in the kitchen for quick repairs. A free, one time per registered guest visit to a local gym is available on request.

Well, what can I say about the bed other than it looked so enticing I hopped right in just about as soon as I arrived and it was so comfortable that I didn't want to get out! Seriously: most comfortable bed I've encountered while traveling and I travel a LOT! Everything else was lovely, charming, comfortable, clean...blah blah blah...but THAT BED!! I really enjoyed Jennifer's place. My only regret is that I was just passing through and could only stay one night. I wish I had family in town so I could schedule a whole week at her place! I regret that my schedule didn't permit me to meet Jennifer personally...but I still felt her hospitality. I truly felt pampered and taken care of by a host who really cares about her guests. I cannot offer a higher recommendation to fellow travelers.

I highly recommend this very comfy cottage, especially for exploring history and experiences all the outdoor beauty that is connected to Laurel, MT. The drive to the NE gate to Yellowstone is beautiful and worth the time and experience. Jennifer is very knowledgeable about her town and please have a discussion about how important Laurel, MT is in our history. Great stay for my little Addy pup. She enjoyed the yard and it was so much fun and a break from the road trip.

Jennifer is the best pre-arrival host I have ever communicated with! Her home is clean, clean, clean and adorable! I loved having a coupon to the local yogurt shop (which was delicious). What more is there to say? This was a beautiful pit-stop on our road trip from Austin, Texas to Seattle Washington.
