It can be difficult to discover all there is to do when visiting a new place, especially a place like Yellowstone where the most popular activity is simply stopping where the wildlife is and checking them out. From our own travels, however, and the experiences we have enjoyed providing comfortable vacation spaces for travelers visiting our town, we have learned that participating in the tours and expeditions of the region being visited, helps create a vacation experience that will never be forgotten. This guide to the top aerial tours of Yellowstone will help you discover the rich and beautiful world we live in, made even better when you come home to our Sweet Home Montana vacation escapes every night of your stay.

Once upon a time, travelers looked upon hotel rooms as simply a place to rest and recuperate from their daily adventures while vacationing, not caring that the entire family often had to share a solo bath, that the two beds four or more people had to sleep on were bumpy and hard, and perhaps not noticing that the money they thought they were saving by sharing the room was being eaten up by the expense of eating out for every meal. Today’s travelers, however, seek something more. They want comfort, they want luxury, and they want the space they deserve and for those preparing for a vacation in Montana, they want the comforts found in our Sweet Home Montana vacation rentals. So what exactly makes Sweet Home Montana’s properties better than hotel rooms?

The Entire Family Is Invited

Unless your pet is a support animal, most hotels won’t allow you to bring them along, but many of our properties are pet friendly ones, ensuring that your entire family will be able to enjoy this vacation in Big Sky Country. Cozy and comfortable, these escapes will provide lush green areas in which your sweet fur babies will be able to frolic and roam.

Budget Friendly

It seems hard to believe, but choosing one of our Sweet Home Montana escapes can actually end up saving you money on this vacation, and who doesn’t like to save money? The math is easy, as some of the savings come from something you understand very well at home: Being able to eat at home instead of being forced into dining out every meal saves you money! 

The cost of dining out grows higher every year and although we don’t expect you to cook every night, our fully equipped kitchens will help you save money and make the chore of meal prep not so bad. Chef quality appliances and a cheerful vibe make these spaces popular, even when only being used to brew coffee and keep your cold beverages cold.

Of course, we aren’t suggesting you eat in every meal, as this part of Montana is known for its comfort food and down-home cooking, and it would be a shame to not venture out at least a few times during your stay, but the money you can save from eating in can go towards souvenirs, adventures, or perhaps be put towards another vacation somewhere down the line.

The Space You Crave

Family vacations are meant to be a time to help draw parents and children closer together, but even with those we love, there can always be a little too much togetherness making the extra space something that appeals to all. Retreat onto porches lined with rocking chairs, waiting for the sun to set the sky on fire at sunset, as your teens play video games at the dining room tables and your tweens turn the state of the art televisions to their favorite shows. For a few minutes, at least, the squabbles will cease, and peace will reign supreme.

The Family That Plays Together

We’ve talked about having the space you need to enjoy some quiet time after the end of a long day of Yellowstone fun, but what about those moments when you really want to hang out with the family? Yes, you will be living it up as you explore the natural beauty of the area, but our cozy cabins offer all the ways to enjoy a deeper family vacation experience.

Gather around the large dining room tables in the sanctuary you chose, playing the board games that are often found on bookshelves or cabinets throughout the space. This was something you probably did many times with your own parents as a child, and the memories have become treasured ones that you want to share with your family. On rainy nights, is there anything more comforting and relaxing than popping some popcorn in the microwave and sharing the fluffy white kernels as you watch a movie together? Our state-of-the-art televisions will make you feel as if you are an extra in the movie, are seated courtside at the big basketball game, or in many cases, will actually feel like you are seated in a theater, only the seats will be more comfortable and the concessions will be a heck of a lot cheaper!

Privacy and Peace

There can be a time and a place when a hotel room will make more sense, but during your vacation in Montana, the privacy of having your own space and the peace and quiet you will experience will very likely be one of your favorite parts of your vacation. No unruly guests laughing or playing the television too loudly and no door slams or arguments in the wee hours of the morning will disrupt the night’s sleep you have been waiting for all day. Just stunning views, quiet nights, and the joy of sharing a vacation with the people you love most.

The Comfort You Deserve

You work hard every day of your life, too hard to accept lumpy mattresses and rock-hard sofas, and our Sweet Home Montana family sanctuaries provide the comfort that you deserve, something your basic hotel room often cannot. Relax and rest easily in every room we offer and wake up ready to face a new day of Montana adventures; reserve your favorite property and contact us today!
