About the Owner

We are Johnny and Susan Kirkland, we live in New York, on Long Island's North Shore, most of the year, but all of our 4 children have moved out west and made it their home. So, we thought we should follow suit, we just aren't quite ready to leave New York full time yet. We bought our house and stay there several times per year, so you can be sure that all of the creature comforts are available to you. Susan is a retired Special Education Teacher, who still substitute teaches on a regular basis and Johnny is a Physicist and software developer. Since our children have gone, we've picked up a new hobby of raising guide dogs. We have successfully raised Josh, who is a working guide dog, and we have raised London, who is now a Vet Service Dog for a disabled Vietnam veteran, and we have Gretha, a breeder dog for the GDF, as well as Dave and Sushi. All three are black labs who lives with us all of the time. This is where our home's name comes from, The Black Dog Hideaway is a tribute to our love for our guide dogs and the important work they do.

During your visit you may see our son John who takes care of the Black Dog Hideaway and lives in the private basement apartment with a separate entrance, or when you are making a reservation you'll talk to Sue who manages the home and bookings.

Please feel free to contact us anytime, we'd love to hear from you!

McClain Family

We had to make last minute plans to travel to Bozeman for a funeral, and hotel rooms were limited, but now I'm so thankful that they were, because the highlight of our trip was being able to share this beautiful home with some family we haven't seen in a long time. There wasn't a single thing we would change about Black Dog Hideaway. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect. I look forward to coming back (in a warmer time of year) and staying for a longer period of time.

Adorable House!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the week of my wedding and used the house to get ready the day of the wedding, as it is close to the church where I got married. It couldn't have been more perfect! The kitchen was beautiful and functional, and we loved the huge master bathroom. It truly has all the amenities a rental house could have, which I really appreciated, as I have stayed at rental houses before that were not completely stocked (ie not sufficient toilet paper, paper towels, plates, etc.). Although the house does not have air conditioning, there are ceiling and wall fans that helped keep the place cool.

Owner's Response: Congratulations to you and your husband, and thank you for letting Black Dog Hideaway have a part in this very special time in your lives. It is always an honor for us, at BDH to host bridle parties, MSU graduation parties, family reunions, and the guest who just wants to relax and enjoy quiet time. To have our home be part of the many special occasions our guests have is very important to us and we always try to have our home "house ready". Thank you again for choosing BDH. Johnny and I wish you all the best as you both start you new life together. Come back and visit for an anniversary sometime.
Regards, Sue & Johnny
P.S. Jacqueline,
You will be happy to know we just put a Mr. Slim air-conditioning system upstairs in the master bedroom! It will keep you cool your next stay at Black Dog Hideaway!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Renting this property for our mini-family reunion was so easy from the start. Owner Sue was responsive to specific questions regarding the house accommodation for my elderly mother. The house was as beautiful as the photos. The location could not be more convenient (we walked everywhere including downtown for Music on Main). The outside deck was perfect for our family meals and games. The beds were comfie. The kitchen well stocked. Everyone remarked on the 'jewel' I found on VRBO, and I'm sure we would rent again if the occasion arises. Thank you for a great reunion weekend, Black Dog Hideaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and advice about the couch. Although the couch was upgraded with a more expensive mattress, and is only a year old, so basically new, we will inspect it when we are out there. We always appreciate our guests comments. Thank you for choosing Black Dog Hideaway and we hope you will visit again soon.

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with this house the moment we stepped inside, and we know that you will too! There are two adorable porch swings on the front porch, and the subtle character is amazing. Downstairs, you'll notice the original woodwork, and a beautiful stained glass lighting fixture over the dining room table. Upstairs was updated with comfort in mind. This house has the best of both worlds, old world history and modern updates and comforts. Plus, you can't beat the location, and proximity to downtown Bozeman!
