Gnome Home was awesome! Property is gorgeous, hist was great. And its not far from Gallatin National Forest and Yellowstone National Park.

Sunrises were amazing here!Hay thats mist!I like to take B&W photos and the gnome home, property and 20mile radius surrounding the farm provide plenty of photo ops.Farmers need mowers too...I think its a mower. 🤔

Thank goodness for the Gnome home! Concise directions and clean spot, welcoming host (and animals) It was the perfect setting for a Montana night under the stars.. That night a windy thunderstorm rolled in and the gnome home was safe, warm and secure but if you're planning on tent camping definitely look at the weather forecast!
A swallows birdhouse was mounted on the back of the home which added to the already completely charming place. It is TINY and i stayed by myself so it was perfect but for 2 you'd like to know eachother very well. Still doable with added storage provided under each single bed.
If you're looking for complete seclusion this place is not it, but space allows for both privacy and communal activities. Serious sunset watching potential!

We were spending a couple of days exploring 30 mins from Yellowstone this property is perfect we slept in the Gnome Home 3ft door but 8ft ceilings windows let in a nice breeze. The fire pit is huge and has a varying level grill for any cooking need. The hosts were so friendly and welcoming a must stay will def be back!

Sheila was an amazing host! She's done a great job with the Gnome Home. The photos don't do it justice. It's an adorable, cozy place to spend an evening. The decor and theme of the space is so cute, and the beds are comfy. The property is beautiful and has all the amenities (picnic table, port-a-potty, community fire pit). I would absolutely stay here again! Also, I'd highly recommend the hot springs pool just up the road :)

Our stay at Gnome Home was amazing, absolutely would recommend. The house is so cute and is unlike anything I’ve stayed in before. Sheila was an excellent host, super welcoming and kind. The stars at night were unreal, the animals were fun and the sunset over the mountain can’t be beat. Don’t miss out, book Gnome Home.

Sheila was a wonderful host. She let us have fresh eggs for breakfast for watering the garden. The animals are all friendly and Butters the pig will love you if you feed scraps. Would definitely stay here again!
