Victoria and Stuart are wonderful hosts and their property is absolutely perfect for anyone seeking a true outdoor Montana getaway. The house is tastefully decorated with every possible amenity- especially the kitchen! It was the perfect place for me and my sons to enjoy the mountains and river activities we love- fishing, mountain biking, hiking… and Bozeman was just a short 20 minute drive for restaurants and shopping. Victoria and Stuart were accommodating and quick to answer any questions or needs. They’re great people and we’re so thankful they offer others the chance to immerse ourselves in the beautiful Montana mountains.

This was our 4th trip to the Shields Retreat and the property is beautifully maintained and the house is well equipped and very clean. Private and easy access to the Shields river and a short drive into Livingston for dinner or any needed items. Visited the Sage spa (about 30 mins away)for a spa treatment while the boys fished

The hosts, Victoria and Stu were very accommodating. The house is very comfortable and cozy. Lots of added touches...we all enjoyed the treats from the welcome basket! Great location with plenty of outdoor activities.

We had a wonderful time during our week-long vacation to Montana. The house was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked, including a generous welcome basket of local treats from the hosts. The house is closer to the main road than the pictures would indicate, but the location is still remote, quiet and very relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

Our primary reason for selecting this property was the prospect of walking out the door and fishing in the Shields River. But when we arrived, we realized that the river was closed to fishing due to the heat and low water levels! We were quite disappointed, but as it turned out, this was one of the most enjoyable and beautiful places we have ever stayed! It is furnished with comfortable furniture and beds, beautiful drapes, wonderful lighting, interesting artwork, lovely gardens--I could go on and on! (By the way--the pictures on the website really do not do it justice.) We cooked most meals and enjoyed the quality cookware, utensils, flatware and great barbeque. The setting is spectacular, with several deer running and playing right outside the back door and the hills and mountains in the background! Everything you need or can think of is provided. Kudos to Victoria and Stuart for creating such a wonderful space to call home for a few days!

We had a fantastic stay- beautiful property, great house and hosts. I almost hesitate to rave so that it doesn’t become even more popular! Close to Livingston, on the Shields River for cooling off— we can’t wait to return.

Fantastic. My family (2 adults +14 & 12yos) had a great stay. All you need to know is that Victoria (the owner) had a welcome basket waiting for us on arrival - a nice touch to go with the well kept and well appointed house. She was super easy to work with for an unusual request we had. I'd have to work hard to find anything to nitpick; maybe that when sitting outside you could occasionally hear some of the louder vehicles on the road in back? (But they meld into the sound of the river, so no big deal.) And the views...! You can walk the private road, or just it on the deck and soak it in. Easy access to town and sights, and the house is not missing anything. We'd go back tomorrow if I could.

Our stay at Shields River Retreat was exceptional. Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, super cozy with the fire, set in the stunning tranquil Shields Valley. We honestly did not want to leave. The kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of and the host Victoria even left an incredible welcome hamper for us upon arrival. It was by far the best VRBO we've stayed in, a true gem. We will be back!

I can not say enough about how awesome our stay was at Sheilds River Resort. Victoria was so helpful and wonderful to meet. The gift basket was so thoughtful with so many goodies!! The house was perfectly decorated for Christmas. It was the perfect location. We were minutes from Livingston. The most perfect little town. We were only about an hour from the north gate of Yellowstone. West Yellowstone was a very doable drive too. We enjoyed snowmobiling, hiking, cross-country skiing, wildlife watching, and so much more. We went to Yellowstone twice. For a small family, this house is absolutely PERFECT. The boys loved the river and outdoors. Our time in Montana went by way too fast. When we go again, we will definitely be trying to stay at the Sheilds River House. Thank you so much for helping make our Christmas great!!

Riverfront idyll in Shields Valley was absolutely perfect! The owners have thought of everything needed to make the house comfortable. The location, on the Shields River, was close to Livingston, but still away from everything. Wildlife, was around the property every day.
