"We visited this summer and fell in love with Big Sky - the scenery and the people.
The home is beautiful and every inch is decorated w/ love and small surprises. Our children loved finding all the small details. The house itself is warm, inviting and kid friendly with lots of games and children's books. (We seriously should not have brought our own!) If you are worried that the house is too modern & might not have enough of that cabin feel, the house actually blends the best of modern, cozy & mountain decors. It is well stocked w/ all the misc. spices (though, obv. replace if you use a significant amount) and kitchen gadgets. Our kids loved making homemade ice cream! We also found the homeowner and the property manager to be responsive and professional.
Specifically, we have stayed in many VBROs and have found they are usually either well managed (b/c it is an income property) but poorly stocked or well stocked but the property manager is a local friend/not a professional. THIS HOUSE IS THE BEST OF BOTH!
For example, when we noticed that there was construction next door, my husband mentioned to the property manager, Mariusz, (who checked in with us frequently but not obtrusively) that we hoped the construction would not be too loud during our stay. It was an off the cuff comment. The next thing we know, we are met with a fruit arrangement and gift certificate w/ apologizes that neither Mariusz or the home owner were aware that the next door home might be in a loud construction phase. We did not expect that & were so appreciative of the gesture. (Also, the construction was completely fine. Do not hesitate to stay there soon.) Another example, my husband forgot his computer cord (needed for work) & emailed Mariuz who immediately responded where we could get a cord.
I would not hesitate staying here again and if the property was not available, finding another home managed my High Altitude Property. Also, if you are considering Big Sky over other mountain towns, this was the first mountain vacation that no one was ready to go home. One last thing about the home, the downstairs is disability accessible and has access to the tv room. So if someone was in a wheelchair, they could easily access the patio, their bedroom/bathroom & the downstairs den (and the mudroom/laundry)."
