Montana’s Most Trusted Property Management Company

Stay Montana is a local, family & employee-owned boutique vacation rental company that specializes in making Montana memories. We strive to provide the best customer service possible and continually exceed our guest & owner expectations. We even provide our family recipe, Ella Cookies at check-in. Our guests & owners love them!

Chris & Jen Torsleff founded Stay Montana in 2016, bringing over 60 years of combined hospitality and resort property management experience working and learning from great companies like Vail Resorts, Ritz Carlton, Hilton, & Marriott. They are proud to have started in bellman and busser positions and worked their way to key leadership roles in some of the most respected companies in the industry. Chris & Jen are located in our Bozeman office. Stop by and say hi!

In 2022, we became employee-owned with David Moore and Laura Dwight joining our local ownership team. Over the last years, they have proven their leadership and worked extremely hard, thus we’re thrilled to add them. David and Laura live in the Flathead Valley with their respective families and young children. David has been part of the Stay Montana family for 7+ years and is our Regional General Manager with a wealth of exceptional hospitality experience. Laura is our Director of Marketing, has been with Stay Montana for 4+ years and brings 18+ years of hospitality marketing experience, plus an MBA with a specialization in Marketing.

We’d also like to introduce, Alicia, who handles Business Development in the Gallatin Valley. Alicia is a seasoned hospitality professional with over 15 years of experience in the industry, specializing in short-term vacation rentals in Big Sky for the past 7 years. She excels in building close relationships with homeowners to understand the unique qualities of each property. Passionate about sharing the wonders of Big Sky, Alicia finds joy in connecting visitors with the magic of the area!

Mel and Charmaine

Columbia Falls Owner

“If you’re looking for a first-class Property Management Company, Stay Montana is outstanding. This team goes above and beyond and we have always been satisfied. We live in Canada and decided to rent out our vacation home in Columbia Falls. Stay Montana was highly recommended to us. We contacted them and in a short period of time, our house was on the market as a vacation rental. They literally looked after everything for us! We feel so fortunate to have a property management company that cares about the homeowner and renters. David and the Stay Montana team have been a dream to work with. No matter when we have contacted them with a question or in need of help, they have always been there for us. If you want to work with the best, we recommend Stay Montana.”

"Excellent Property Management Co. Everyone has been so nice and helpful to work with. I'm really glad I chose them to take care of my property."

Graham

Bozeman Owner

"This is the best management company I have ever worked with. Amber Vogl has been incredibly impressive to to work with and is always a pleasure to talk to. They are quick to respond to any needs or questions I have no matter how small. They were invaluable in getting my unit on the market. They have done an excellent job of keeping the vacancy low. They also provide suggestions of improvements that can be made to get more renters. The guests have been equally impressed with their performance. I would hate to have to compete with them because I am not sure how anyone would do any better. I will be a customer for life."
