Meadow Village townhome description

The Bear's Den is a upscale vacation townhouse located on a quite hillside overlooking the Westforke Meadows area, it is close to everything with fantastic views!

The Bear's Den is a four season vacation rental located in Big Sky, just 50 miles from the West Yellowstone entrance to Yellowstone National Park in the heart of the Gallatin National Forest, Big Sky is home to the greatest scenery, the most abundant wildlife, and some of the most exciting recreation in southwest Montana.

The Bear's Den is located on a quite hillside overlooking Westfork Meadows. Walk down hill to a variety of restaurants, pubs, and shops. Only a short drive to two world class ski slopes Big Sky - rated one of North America's Top 10 by Skiing Magazine and Moonlight Basin. For X-Country enthusiasts there is the Lone Mountain Ranch - Voted North America's Number One Nordic Ski Resort with an 80 km groomed trail system that is SKI IN / OUT from the Bears Den Patio.


Summer in Big Sky boasts numerous trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, while the Gallatin River calls the whitewater enthusiasts and beckons the serene fly fishermen to its waters.

Winter in Big Sky brings opportunity not only for World Class Alpine, Cross-Country and Boarding but also sleigh ride dinners, dog sled adventures, Snowshoeing, Snowmobiling and local seasonal festivals.

After your day of Adventures, comeback to the Bear's Den and relax on the patio, deck or in the outdoor hot tub and enjoy the mountain scenery and tranquility. Wait for the darkness and do some sky watching/backyard astronomy - at approximately 6300 feet the Bear’s Den is a perfect place to explore the universe - star guide books provided. The Bear's Den is our second home and the kitchen has everything you need from the Veggie Steamer to the rice cooker and gourmet pots and pans!

Small office area with Desk, Printer, Chair, Internet is located off of the Master Bedroom.
