Grabow Hotel - Bozeman CVB

Grabow Hotel

204 E. Callender St. #25 Livingston, MT

406 220-1056


The grand, historic Grabow hotel building sits in the heart of Livingston, the 1880s original rail gateway to Yellowstone, the first national park in the world, and called by Architectural Digest "One of the most beautiful downtowns in America." Known for its flowers, it once hosted John D. Rockefeller and European royalty. It's a close walk to museums, shops, galleries, and bars/restaurants.

The Space

Stunningly pretty "Yellowstone" is a full ground-floor suite with living room under Mission arches, modern dine-in full kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and two bedrooms. Small patio outside, with larger flower garden/yard at the opposite end.

Guest access

Suite has two entrances: through the beautiful lobby, or the private side door on B street.

Other things to note

There's a commercial space next door, so modest normal quiet during day hours can be appreciated.
The 9-5 2-hour parking zone in front just means avoid that between 11-3, but overnight/weekend is fine, and normal neighborhood spots are close by too.


German immigrant William Grabow settled in the Livingston area in the early 1880s. There he established a flour mill and helped introduce the manufacture of brick. Between 1908 and 1911, William built this prominent corner building, where he and his wife, Elizabeth, established the Grabow Hotel in 1911. It was soon recognized as one of Montana’s leading hostelries. Guests at the Grabow enjoyed “every known convenience,” including hot and cold running water in each of the thirty rooms and a fine European style restaurant. William died at the height of the 1918 flu epidemic and Elizabeth, six feet tall and eminently capable, ran the business until 1936 when the hotel fell victim to the Great Depression. The once-popular hotel was sold at sheriff’s sale and later converted to offices and apartments. In 1998, William and Elizabeth’s grandchildren, sisters Patricia Grabow and Bonny Grabow Milligan, brought the building back into the family and began its restoration. They burned the 1936 sale document, the source of three generations of family grief, over the graves of their grandparents.
