The Lakes at Valley West


The Lakes at Valley West is Bozeman's newest master-planned community, featuring two 6-acre lakes, miles of walking trails and open space in abundance, as well as close proximity to shopping and schools. The developers, Kilday & Stratton, believe it to be the finest piece of residential development land in Bozeman, perhaps in all of Gallatin County. It is the last phase of the Valley West community which has matured into an outstanding example of a master-planned community.

Kilday & Stratton intend to develop The Lakes to its highest and best use through careful planning and thoughtful design. By selecting the best artisan builders and tasking them to develop new and innovative designs unique to The Lakes, they intend to realize the full potential of this magnificent property.

Their goal is simple. Make The Lakes, THE place to live in Bozeman.
