Things to do during "cabin time" in Bozeman
Bozeman, MT short term cabin rentals are near the Gallatin River and downtown. Over the past few years, Bozeman Montana has earned a reputation for being an outdoor and adventure enthusiasts playground — and for good reason. The mountains provide a challenge for every level of biker, hiker, and climber, and for winter sport aficionados, there is plenty of powder to pound — and plenty of unique wilderness accommodations.
Since the lush outdoors is the main attraction to Bozeman, why not start there? Bozeman is well-known to rock climbers for its challenging routes and beautiful views. If that’s not your choice, grab your hiking boots and mountain bikes and hit one of the many trails that surround the area’s traditional log cabins, luxury tree houses and mountain resorts. Bozeman’s wilderness trails cater to a variety of skill levels — the South Cottonwood trail is an easy trek, and both the M Trail and the Drinking Horse trails have easier options. The Palisade trail is a short but sweet asphalt trail that leads to the breathtaking Palisades waterfall. Those looking for a challenging all day hiking affair, try Baldy Peak Summit or drive out 30 minutes to the Hyalite Peak trailhead. Many of the trails are dog-friendly and a few even allow for horseback riding.
Winter in Bozeman is also a treat. Thrill seekers can find plenty of places for ice climbing in Hyalite canyon, while those who prefer to stay on the ground can try their hand at snowshoeing or cross-country skiing — and those who prefer to enjoy a book and a mug of hot chocolate by a frosted window can hunker down in any number of cozy rental cabins and lodges. Anglers and ice skaters can hit the ice-covered ponds and spend the day reeling in the fish or twirling on their toes. For those who are anxious to try out some downhill actions, Bridger Bowl Ski area is one of the premier runs in the area.
When you decide to come inside, make the Museum of the Rockies one of your stops. The museum is a Smithsonian partner and home to the nation’s largest collection of dinosaur fossils as well as a planetarium. With exhibits from all over the world and notable lecturer’s, it’s sure to make a lasting impression. Continue your educational and cultural excursion by wandering through the Gallatin County history museum and learn of the Native American and settler history of the area, When your brain is full, wander over to the Emerson Center for Culture and the arts. Bozeman vacation rentals enjoy easy access to an old school building that has been transformed into an art gallery, a performance theater, and a community center that hosts public events such as lectures, classes, and the winter farmers market.
After you’ve exhausted your energy preserves, grab some local grub or a refreshing craft brew downtown. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, head out from the cabin early to fuel up at Storm Castle or Cateye before starting your adventures. If by dinner you’re craving classics, head to Garage the Soup Shack and Mesquite Grill. Craving something a little different? Cafe Zydeco serves up authentic cajun, or try out Z’s or I-ho’s Korean for a unique culinary experience. To wash it all down grab a craft brew at Bozeman Brewery or sample an inventive cocktail at Plonk. You won’t leave hungry.
Bozeman is quickly rising as one of the top places to visit in the U.S, and you can see why. Book your cabin, load the car, and come on out.
