Montana Weddings at Old Chico

I thought I would share a link to some wedding photos that were taken at Old Chico along Emigrant Creek. And in one case, at the cottage. Go to Nashan Photographers, select Chieko- weddings from the "please select a category" drop down box. Select the Colavito.Hoovestal wedding for the session at the cottage and the Wells.Wright wedding for pictures around Emigrant Creek and Old Chico. Both beautiful weddings with a fantastic photographer. She really captured the beauty and some of the history of the area while focusing on the their happy days. Enjoy!!

Here we are, February, and in Montana that can mean a whole lotta winter is left. What to do? Winter hiking, skiing, and maybe a little sledding. We will beat the winter doldrums!

Hint: It is kind of easy when the scenery is this good!

Picnic on the Patio

Just outside the basement door is a patio overlooking the creek. This spring day was perfect for a picnic there.

The cook grilled up some delicious steaks.

Easter at the Cottage

We spent Easter at the cottage and had a wonderful spring weekend.

Our stay would not be complete without an egg hunt on the lawn.

Emigrant Creek still has a touch of snow in it, but it is melting quickly and it won't be long before we have flowers and leaves.

Lounging and Cooking

I purposely designed this kitchen to be quick and effecient. Who wants to spend their vacation cleaning house. It is very easy to work in with plenty of counter space, new appliances, and cooking utensils.

The basement features an area outside the bedrooms for lounging and the french doors open onto the patio that overlooks the creek.

The main floor also has a lounging area complete couches and a television. Perfect for relaxing after a day in Yellowstone.
