Meadow Village guest house description

Our historic renovated log cabin sits above the South fork of the Gallatin River on a 14 acre gated estate. This unique 'one of a kind' property is beautifully landscaped and walking distance to golf, tennis, meadow village, town center and a number of Big Sky's best restaurants. This upscale cabin features a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, gourmet cookware, and all the utensils necessary for incredible meals.

The entire cabin features old world plaster walls, and original oak flooring. The river rock wood burning fireplace includes a heat-a-lator insert helping to make the cabin warm and toasty. Your deck overlooks the Southfork of the Gallatin, a small stream loaded with willing trout. Elk, Moose, Deer and Bear are regular visitors.

Your host is a PSIA certified ski instructor and private or group lessons can be included with your rental at very affordable rates.

Ours in not just a rental... it's a lifestyle!


In sight of World Class Skiing: If skiing or snow boarding is your passion, you couldn't be in a better spot. Your cabin has views of ski runs of Big Sky Resort. Included with your rental is V.I.P. parking in the Summit Hotel at the base of Big Sky. Make the short 10 minute drive up the mountain and have your car valet parked in a heated garage. Ski and boot storage is available free of charge. Walk up the short flight of stairs and you're at the base lifts ready to tackle 'the Biggest Skiing in America.'

As a PSIA certified ski instructor, I am usually available to show guests around our two resorts or give pointers that will improve their abilities.

Not Just a Rental but a Lifestyle.: Drive through the electronic gate off the main road leading up to Big Sky's resorts and you enter a private world few people will ever know. First you'll encounter a waterfall and bubbling stream emptying into our stocked trout pond surrounded by native willows. Bull Moose, Deer and Elk are frequent visitors to this ecosystem. Hand raised Mallard ducks swim happily and bald eagles soar above. Everywhere you look are mountains and pine trees and below the cabin the pristine South fork of the Gallatin River runs. While in this private estate one can only marvel at the sights, sounds and smells that make us and everyone who visits happy to be alive.

On the property you will have access to the prettiest bocce ball court west of the Missippi, a professional grade horse shoe court, stocked trout pond and over half a mile of private river access.
.

Fly Fishing Mecca: If you like to fly fish you might consider this the mecca of the sport. Within a 60 mile radius of your cabin are a dozen world famous trout rivers including; the Gallatin, Madison, Firehole, Gibbon, Jefferson, Yellowstone, Slough Creek and more. Walk out your back door and catch wild trout on a 2 or 3 weight fly rod. Go 1.6 miles to the Gallatin River, one of Montana's most reliable and prolific rivers.

We can arrange guided float trips or walk-wade trips for you and might even take you down one of our local rivers in our own float boat. If fly fishing is your thing, you're in the right place.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I am a retired entrepreneur and founder of the Calendar Club, the world's leading seasonal retailer. My wife Zoey was a model and fitness instructor for Princess cruises when she was younger. When we met in 2005 she was doing interior design work for private clients. I became a PSIA certified ski instructor at 60 and teach skiing part time at one of Big Sky's two world class ski resorts. I am also an avid fly fisherman who has fished all over the world from Argentina to Mongolia. I teach fly casting/fishing to friends and family. In the past, I have been a professional trainer of bird dogs and now have a Brittany and English Setter that hunt with me often on my pheasant lease.

                  Why the Owner Chose Meadow Village:
                  When I decided to buy a mountain home it had to meet two important criteria. It had to be close to 'world class' skiing and fly fishing. I narrowed my search down to three places in the United States that had both, and decided on Big Sky for many reasons. The first time I saw this property I knew this was a special place. Where else could a person have a trout stream in their back yard, two world class ski resorts out thier front door and be within 60 miles of some of the most famous and sacred trout rivers in the world? The property I bought provided me with a blank canvas on which I have created my art. That art consists of hardscapes, landscapes, gardening and home improvements that make the Southfork Lodge a life style and not just real estate.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
                  When you stay in the Southfork guest cabin you are not just getting a rental... You are experiencing a lifestyle. You never know if there will be a Moose outside your door or a family of ducks in our pond. You will experience the 'Wild West' while being pampered with down comforters, flannel sheets and coffee on your deck overlooking the rivers. We're wild... But not uncivilized.
