Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We were born in Philadelphia and Arlington, VA, and have lived in Maryland for over 20 years. However, we have always been able to get away from it all by hiking and skiing in the beautiful Western mountains. We have visited many places in the Western US, but have always loved Big Sky the most.
Why the Owner Chose Crail Ranch: Our family first visited Big Sky seven years ago and immediately fell in love with the town, community, scenery, and people. We have gone back every year since, and finally decided to buy our own home. We love the outdoors: hiking and rafting in the summer and skiing (both downhill and cross country) in the winter. After spending time in a number of different locations on the mountain and in the meadow, we centered our search to Meadow Village and found the best property on the market...in upscale Crail Ranch. We bought the barely-used townhome empty, allowing us to put all new furniture in it with the help of one of the best local interior designers, allowing us to truly call it our home. We hope you will consider sharing this special place with us.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: Our property is one of a handful of properties in Big Sky right on the West Fork Gallatin River (the size of a creek), allowing you to be soothed by the sights and sounds of water as you relax in our home.
You can walk out the door and hop on XC ski trails, or head to the playground or hiking trails in the summer, all by foot!
After a great day outdoors, enjoy our sauna and/or steam shower. We have hired the best property manager in town, that will provide you with 24/7 services and discounted ski rentals, shopping, restaurant, and spa services available only to our guests.
