Kara Stermitz is a fifth generation owner of the Elliott Guest House. Originally built by Kara's great-great grandmother, Sarah Schultz, the home was an early day boarding home for expectant mothers. Kara's great-great grandmother Sarah, a mid-wife, journeyed in her horse and buggy to outlying ranches to pick up expectant mothers. She pampered Mom and Baby, giving them respite they likely would not have again soon. Nowadays, Kara takes great enjoyment in offering the home to her guests as she raises her four children and works as a Marketing Administrator/Operations Manager for Confluence Consulting, a stream restoration and environmental consulting firm in Bozeman, MT. Kara has strong ties to Park County, as her family still ranches near Yellowstone Park. Kara is an avid flyfisher and can talk with you about many excursions and choices in the area. When she is not busy in Livingston, Kara chooses to travel elsewhere to flyfishing adventures!
Owner purchased this House in 1992

Very comfortable and convenient to all things " Livingston".
My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely. The " Elliot " house was just what we were hoping for. Extremely comfortable and walking distance to town. Every possible necessity was there for your benefit. Clearly a great deal of time and effort had been made by the owner to make our stay pleasurable . Would rent it again absolutely. George and Sue
Elliott Guest House
Super location (a 2 min walk to a happening downtown scene), super quiet, super clean, super beds and a super shower. Very impressed. Would stay again in a heart beat. Thanks Kara!
Cozy house for our family visit to Yellowstone National Park.
Nice little town. House was charming and perfect for our 3 night stay.
Charming house but not sturdy enough for us.
We don't want to break anything in a house we rent. Being a family with a handicapped child, meant we felt a bit like walking on eggs this week. We loved the neighbourhood and town and Montana. The house was a great starting point for visiting Yellowstone and other attractions. Kara is a good host, but we think the house is in need of some serious maintenance.
We were disappointed to hear that our home did not meet what you were looking for. We checked in with you at least twice to see how your stay was going, and if there were any needs. We did not receive any feedback during your stay alerting us to problems. The Elliott Guest House is kept in excellent condition and maintenance, with current electrical, flooring, plumbing, structural, appliance, and infrastructure. It could be that the level of special needs for your child would be best met in a much more standard lodging choice. We wish you the very best.
The house was clean and well organized with supplies and equipment.
The property was well maintained and located near many Montana attactions.
10/10 would recommend
Hosts like Kara have separated themselves by being a true host of home sharing websites. Personalized notes, directions and suggestions for your stay all exist in her rental. Also, you can fit about 10 people in this place! Tons of places to sit with everything being fully functional.
Thank you again for opening your home to my friends and I. I will certainly be reaching out when I visit beautiful Livingston Montana again!
Our home is uniquely close to theaters, art galleries, dining, the Yellowstone River, and other fine amenities. You can safely walk downtown after a day of enjoying the outdoors. Montana Rib and Chop, one of our best eateries, is a short walk down the alley.
