'A MOONLIGHT GETAWAY'
check us out on Facebook for last minute specials and extra pictures!
This luxury ski in/ski out end-unit townhome in Saddle Ridge is located slopeside at the Pony Express lift. The Pony Express lift, shared by both Big Sky and Moonlight Basin, offers individual or combined lift tickets for both ski areas. There are 5300 acres of sheer skiing enjoyment at one’s disposal. For lift ticket value coupled with light crowds, Moonlight is an extraordinary experience.
This astonishing three bedroom, three and a half bath sports the finest of everything: fully furnished rooms with accompaniments that not only add character but also deliver on deep engaging comfort, breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys from all windows, and ski-in / ski-out convenience. After a long day of skiing or hiking, one can enjoy the scenic views of Big Sky, Moonlight Basin and Lone Peak Mountain while relaxing in the soothing comforts of our outdoor hot tub. The unit has two large decks and allows for outdoor dining during our warm summer months.
With over 2,100 square feet of comfortable space, this home feels cozy and inviting. Tucked upstairs, the master bedroom offers a quiet, serene escape from the activities experienced during the course of the day. The master bedroom is home to a beautifully carved sleigh bed, a reading nook that duals as a sleeping niche, a master bath with full shower and a walk-in closet.
The two additional bedrooms, located downstairs, offer both privacy and comfort.
The first bedroom, highly spacious, has a large walk-out deck and in suite bathroom with both shower and bath. In addition, this bedroom contains a functional day bed with trundle. The second bedroom hosts twin beds with a very spacious in suite bathroom that contains a shower. The main floor hosts a beautifully appointed living room with dining area and a gourmet kitchen. This is an ideal getaway for families and friends. We are proud to offer you our exceptionally clean, professionally decorated home for you to enjoy!
Many rentals in the area attest to be ski-in, ski-out venues. However, this is rarely the case. Often times, a sea of obstacles makes the trip to the lift rather cumbersome. Our back patio is truly adjoined to the hill that leads immediately to the ski lift. Simply attach your skis and shimmy down the bunny hill – your ski lift will be waiting. It is literally seconds away from our back patio.
In addition to all of the aforementioned, The Moonlight Basin lodge is just steps away. Moonlight Basin offers an array of amenities: a gourmet restaurant, bar and grill, spa, health club, pool and skating pond. All of their information is listed on the Moonlight Basin website.

We stayed at this property for 1 week. Property was perfect, very clean, and felt like home - not a rental. Everything we needed was there and exceeded our expectations. As for Moonlight Basin - we used to travel to a different ski area every year until we found Moonlight Basin. Now we visit Moonlight annually. The Tracy family and Moonlight make for a perfect combination. We have tried other properties at Moonlight, and they are all wonderful, however, the experience with these owners makes this property exceptional. After dealing with this VRBO, we will be asking for the privilege to utilize this property again.

This was a return visit to the Tracy home at Saddle Ridge, We rent VRBO homes all over the U.S. often, and this one is a favorite. It is well stocked with every amenity to make our ski trip special. We especially like being able to ski in and out so easily and the views are amazing. The kitchen has everything I am used to having in my own kitchen and even has spices needed for cooking. The full size washer and dryer was convenient and there was also a boot dryer for our ski boots! This home has a warm inviting feel to it. We hope to stay here when we ski Big Sky again next year, Thank you Tracy's for sharing your great home with us!

Summertime in Big Sky

We had an awesome time during our summer vacation in Big Sky. The condo was comfortable and clean. There weren't a lot of people around in the summer which is a lot different from Colorado ski towns. It was absolutely wonderful. The views are spectacular and the wildlife was abundant. We saw bears (a momma grizzlye and two cubs, and a lone black bear) and moose and their babies. Not from the distance, right off the road. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back. It's a beautiful area and the condo was everything we expected it to be.

We had a wonderful time at the Tracy's home. The accomadations were more than we could've asked for. My family and I wanted to spend some quality time together since we don't get to do that at home and we couldn't have done it in a more beautiful setting. The views were breathtaking and the wildlife was amazing, we even had a Red Fox visit us on the patio while we were in the hot tub, sooo cool. Being from Minnesota I thought I knew what snow was, I was wrong. They get SNOW by the FEET not inches!!! The fishing was great and we had a blast playing the board games that were provided. We also enjoyed having a couple of cocktails while talking by the fireplace. We would definitly go back, my son and I said we would love to move there.

One of the best locations at Moonlight

I just wanted to take some time and say how much I enjoyed my week skiing at Moonlight Basin and our evenings staying at Saddle Ranch W-2. After spending most of the 2009-2010 season riding at the big resorts in Colorado, Moonlight Basin was such a nice change of pace. With less crowds I was able to get in more runs, by not waiting in lift lines after each run, plus it was nice to actually be staying on the mountain in a true ski in ski out lodge. Not having to get dressed in a parking lot or chalet is defiantly a luxury. All I needed to do was look down and see if the chair lift is running, get dressed, walk out the back door, and then a short ride down to the chair lift, where you can purchase lift tickets, and off you go for the day. The skiing at Moonlight rivals some of the best terrain in Colorado. For the motivated skiers, hikes from the Head Waters or Lone Tree lifts would give you access to some amazing, mostly untouched terrain. If hiking isn’t your thing, then the terrain that is accessible from the lifts is challenging for skiers of all skill levels. At the end of the day getting back to the condo is a breeze; with just a short catwalk that will bring you right back to where you began the day, the back door of the condo. No walking back to the car, or through the chalet, this truly is a ski in ski out facility. Our evenings were spent in the spacious condo, with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the beautiful mountain views. Of course the hot tub is a nice perk, its pretty easy to relax when soaking in this hot tub when every where you look there are beautiful mountain views. I just want to thank the generous owners for sharing their space with us, my expectations where blown away!! All in all it was a great week at Moonlight Basin and we will are planning on returning and staying here for years to come.

True ski in and ski out, beautiful views, professionally decorated, spacious and very well equiped. We( 3 couples) stayed at Moonlight from February 20 to the 27th, 2010 and could not have had better accomodations. The skiing was not bad either-no lift lines and plenty of variety; easy access to Big Sky too. Highly recommended!!

This was an awsome vaction spot. The accomodation made it work for all of us doing many activities like alpine skiing, cross country skiing, dog sledding, and snow shoeing. The place was truly ski in - ski out and working with the owners while renting it was very smooth during the entire process. We would definitely come back to this unit and owner again!

We stayed in this condo January 6-13, 2010 and wished that we had planned another day or two. It was wonderful. There were 6 of us; we had plenty of room. It was very convenient, clean, comfortable, and the location was perfect for skiing. The views were spectacular. We highly recommend this condo and Moonlight Basin resort.

I have stayed in this unit with 4 or 5 others every year for the past 4 years and will continue to do so every year. Even with a lot of people, there is more than enough room for everyone (plenty of beds, spacious kitchen, living room, etc.). You can't beat the location either. You can see the chairlift from the deck and a quick ride down a small hill gets you there (where you can also buy lift tickets). The runs are long, not crowded, and accommodate every skill level. Lift lines are extremely short and the employees are all very nice. If you decide to go over to Big Sky, you can ski over easily as well, so don't even need to get in the car. And, after a long day, nothing beats relaxing in the outdoor hot tub with a great view of the mountain! Highly recommended!

We stayed at your villa from Sept 21 thru Oct 2, 2009, and enjoyed every day. A trip to Yellowstone let us see elk, moose, bison, wolves, and fox. Coming back that night there was a small herd of elk just off the road between Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. Another enjoyable side trip was to Virginia City, an old west mining town, that is on the Historic Register and preserved as it was years ago. After nine days of sunny weather we woke to a cool morning with a blanket of snow. That changed the spectacular views and made the hot tub very inviting. Also, a small black bear ran around the end of the adjoining villa. Well equipped, everything we wanted with nothing missing. A 10 for views, comfort, furnishings.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: The Tracy's When our kids were little, we started a family tradition of skiing over the Christmas holiday. We skied Minnesota, Colorado and Big Sky. In 2006 we stayed in Moonlight Basin and fell in love. We bought our home that week! We couldn't ask for more convenience when it comes to skiing. We put our skis on at our patio door (which is on the ski path from the lodge), and ski down to the Pony Express lift. When we are ready to come home, we ski the Powder Ridge run, shoot right past the lodge and follow the ski path back to our sliding door. Although we feel that our home has many perks, our favorite is being able to actually ski in and out from our patio. Our unit is in the most recent phase of development in Saddle Ridge. This unit was professionally decorated, and we keep the house stocked with every amenity our guests could possibly need. We make multiple trips to the house throughout the year, to maintain it and keep it up to date. We live in Minnesota, but our daughter does all of the rental bookings/marketing for us. She lived in Chicago for a number of years, but recently moved to the east coast. So, if you have a few contact names and numbers, that’s why! Although the Big Sky winters brought us to Montana, we truly enjoy every season out here. Our family makes about 6 trips a year, and regardless of the season, it's always beautiful. No matter what time of year, there are plenty of outdoor activities and wildlife to enjoy. We work with a local management company to care for our home, and make sure our guests have a fantastic stay, even if we are a few states away. We hope you enjoy your stay!
