About the owner: We have been coming to Big Sky since 1972 and 1994.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We had planned to build a home in Big Sky but loved this home and the location! The home is warm and inviting and has a great layout. It's in a very private setting but close to amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Wildlife also like this area and we have seen bears, moose, a coyote, deer and elk on our property.
The Drake is at an elevation of 6490 feet which is advantageous to those who are concerned about symptoms that can affect people at higher altitudes.
