Cedar Creek condo description

Our mountain retreat has been a family affair for years and now you also have the opportunity to enjoy the condo and 12 months of recreation opportunities. Even if you are here for a conference, you should find a little time for R&R.

Alice took the photos and her skills leave a bit to be desired but she is still a 'photographer's work in progress'. Also, we have a bit more decorating to do including the addition of a couple chairs in the living area.

From our 2nd story condo with cathedral-ceiling you will have the very best views of Andesite Mountain and Mountain Village Town Center - it is a site to see at night with all the lights!

'Homey and comfortable' are the terms our friends use to describe the place. Our decor reflects Montana's Big Sky Country showcasing the great out-of-doors.

In addition to our 2 comfy bedrooms/2 baths there is a linen closet and storage room for your use.

Off the dining area is a balcony with $1 million view. A great place to bask in the afternoon sun or watch the sunset. If you stay in the winter months, we also provide a shovel for you to keep the deck clear of snow - and we get a lot of it!

For skis, poles, boards, boots or more storage, there is also a keyed locker in the hall for your private use.

You are on your own for food but you will always find the essential staples - coffee, tea, salt, pepper, cooking spray, Mrs. Dash, sugar, sweetener, flour, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and coffee filters. Just fire up the crock pot and then enjoy the day!

The 40 in. flat screen TV has channels galore; WiFi internet is password protected and only for your use; and cell service is very good.

There are plenty of activities to do in and around Big Sky all year long. Whether you ski or snowboard in the winter or like to hike, zipline, mountain bike, fish, visit Yellowstone National Park and take in the farmers market and cultural events in the spring, summer or fall, Big Sky and the surrounding area has what you are looking for. At the end of the day, consider a special meal or dip in the hot tub at the main lodge at Mountain Village or Moonlight Basin. For your convenience, there is a free shuttle to these areas as well as the Town Center, Meadow Village and Buck's T-4.

While the condo is in the Mountain Village, it is just a short drive to a multitude of recreation - but near to Bozeman - an exploding medical, cultural, commercial, university and hi-tech community.

If you are considering other options or have more than 6 people, please take a look at our Comfy Country Retreat (VRBO.com/47536). It is located between Bozeman and Big Sky at the southern end of the Gallatin Valley and about a 45 minute drive to Big Sky's Mountain Village.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: Alice came to Montana more than 35 years ago to attend graduate school at Montana State University. She loved it so much that she was determined to return when she retired. Lloyd met Alice in Nebraska. Alice's only requirement for getting married was that Lloyd had to be willing to move to Montana when they retired. So here we are!!! We each have a PhD in soil physics and enjoyed careers working in agricultural and environmental research and extension. Lloyd was a federal agricultural scientist in Nebraska and conducted research on rainfall - induced soil detachment, animal waste management, irrigation management, conservation tillage, soil compaction and soil quality. Alice was a professor at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. She conducted most of her research on farm fields specializing in rain - induced soil erosion on steep hillsides, soil compaction, reduced tillage systems, and crop production under drought conditions. Her work as a state extension specialist focused on translating research results on the above (and associated) topics into useful information for farmers, ranchers, agricultural companies, and local, state and federal agency personnel. She also served with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C. for two years. First as a Water Quality Grant Manager and then as the National Director of the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE). We love all four seasons here in Montana and shy away from becoming snowbirds! However, we do enjoy traveling around Montana when we have the time. Many of our recent Montana travels coincide with visits from our grandson from Houston. He is a real outdoorsman and a fantastic photographer.

          Why the Owner Chose Cedar Creek:
          Montana is very, very special to us and we truly enjoy sharing it with others. We came home to Montana when we retired and had the opportunity to purchase this property a few years later. Alice used the Big Sky area for hiking, fishing and skiing back in the 1970s and 80s. Also, she took some soils classes that focused on timbered mountain soils and geology in the Big Sky area. Since the early days of Alice & Chet Huntley, the resort has really grown up but continued to be a family - oriented place for summer and winter recreation. For us, Big Sky is just another little piece of paradise. It is definitely Big Sky at its best!

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          Location! Location!! Location!!! * central mountain village location; * quiet setting; * modern facilities. This is what you get at the comfy mountain condo! You say you want to to travel around the area to see historical and cultural sites, recreate, tour Yellowstone national park as well as sight see and shop in bozeman? This central location allows you to get to most of these activities within one hour. Is it quiet here? You bet! Quiet hours are strictly enforced as is the no smoking policy. Come and listen to the 'silence and serenity' of mountain village. Your modern mountain condo were newly built in 2000. We are the first and only owner. While the rooms are homey and decorated to match the big sky country, you have hot water baseboard heat and a gas fireplace for a little extra heat and ambiance. This vrbo site is a good reflection of us and our hospitality. If you want big sky right outside your doorstep, this is the place for you! Otherwise, consider our 'comfy country condos' (vrbo.Com/47536) located half-way between big sky and Bozeman. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to share with you. We hope to earn your business!
