About Kaia Pelstring

My husband & I were married in 2007. We are a blended family of 6 Children, age 14-30. 2 are married, giving us 3 adorable grandchildren. We also have 2 dogs and 1 cat. Beartooth is the perfect home to accommodate all of us. And the Big Sky area has something for everyone.

Kaia Pelstring purchased this house in 2008

Why Kaia Pelstring chose Riverview Ranch

Living in MN, it is nice to be able to drive to Big Sky in a day. Our family has enjoyed the wonders of Montana for years. Ranging from annual ski trips to visiting our daughter at college in Bozeman. This area has been a large part of our lives. Our vacation home is the best location in the Big Sky area to experience all it has to offer. It is minutes from Big Sky & Moonlight Basin ski resorts, the local golf courses, Yellow stone National Park, Gallatin River, and 100's of hiking trails. We enjoy sight seeing at Yellow Stone,(especially the wild animal sightings),cross country skiing, hiking, playing tennis, walking the dogs on the bike path, white water rafting, soaking in the local hot springs, snowmobiling in the mountains surrounding our house, fly fishing just a short walk away, zip lining, And especially going out to the many local bars & restaurants for the good food, friendly people and live music. The Meadows Village area also has great shopping, out door band concerts, food, film & art festivals that we love to attend. A movie theater and Ice Skating rink have also recently been added. There is always something for everyone each season in Big Sky.

What makes this house unique

Of course the greatest benefit to owning Beartooth is that it comfortably sleeps 13 people. With 4 bedrooms & 3 full bathrooms, The 2 large living areas are also nice for numerous activities to be going on at the same time. The pool table is great for all ages. We do enjoy having 3 TV's with all the movie & sports channels, especially on those cold winter nights sitting all cozy by the fire place. And the fully equipped kitchen is so nice on evenings when you just don't feel like going out. Our family tradition is playing various card games around the large dining room table after dinner. They tend to get pretty lively and it is a wonderful bonding time for all of us.

We recently updated the backyard by adding the hot tub and patio with the fire pit. After a long day of skiing or other numerous summer outdoor activities, soaking in the hot tub is a wonderful way to relax, and the star gazing is amazing. We also fenced in the large backyard which is great for the dogs and small children. The yard is large enough for friendly Badminton games, and the tennis court, kiddie park and soccer fields are only a block away.

The summer evenings in Big Sky are the best, the day cools off, the sun sets late and we all can go out and enjoy the many activities right in our own backyard and neighborhood.

Make sure you don't miss the sunsets over the Ramshorm Mountain range, they are spectacular!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Another wonderful stay at Beartooth. This time our daughter and her friends joined us. There was plenty of room for us all. We made the Upper loop of Yellowstone, visited Yellowstone's Grand Canyon and Mammoth Hot Springs. A bit of a drive but well worth it. We learned to fly fish (sort of learned!) and did the downhill mountain biking at Big Sky (even me, grandma, enjoyed it!)

We ate several meals at Half Moon, La Luna, Huckaberries, Buggaboo and $7.00 beer & burgers at the Corral.

Thanks again for the use of your comfortable and lovely home.

Beartooth; Beautiful Big Sky & Yellowstone Vacation Home!
average rating of 4.8333335 based on 41 reviews

It’s location and comfort of the house was perfect for our 15 nights in Big Sky, Montana.

  • 4 of 5

First of all, the owner was extremely nice and accommodating. Allowing us to bring our 2dogs says volumes. Secondly, we had plenty of room yet enjoyed the cozy feel as we watched it snow one evening. All-in-all, staying at Beartooth made our vacation most enjoyable.

Fly fishing getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my husband's 50th birthday surprise for a fly fishing getaway. We could not have been more pleased!!! There is nothing left out- kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking utensils and supplies you would need. The house is gorgeous and sleeps so many people ( although we only had 4 people, we could have had 10 more!)

Plenty of towels and linens, fenced back yard and fire pit that we spent most evenings outside.

The location is absolutely perfect- my husband walked to the river every day!!

Thank you so much for a lovely stay- we will most definitely be back :)

Lovely Property Fully Furnished Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this absolutely beautiful home in a great location. What wonderful memories our family has form this home, location. The view was spectacular, having a garage was a blessing. All appliances worked great, plenty of hot water, views were spectacular, oh , the hot tub was awesome after our long hikes. All I can say it is tastefully furnished supplied with whatever you desire. The fireplace in back was great for family fun and memories, charcoal grill and gas grill were provided, amazing! There is a playground close by for children, fenced yard and a kennel for dog. There is a pool table that was great family fun, very much enjoyed. New washer/dryer, even detergent supplied. There was plenty of room throughout the home to enjoy company or private time. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to share their lovely home and for ensuring we knew where to go for sightseeing and things to do. There is an indoor fireplace if needed.

Definitely a great time for family, business, get togethers reunions, etc.

Thank you again for allowing us to make such wonderful memories!!

So much to see and do, what a Great House. In a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We 3 Midwest couples really enjoyed staying at Beartooth Vacation Home. The location just off Highway 191 is perfect for getting to Bozeman & West Yellowstone. And Meadow Village /Town Center is only about 3 miles away. The house is surprisingly spacious and the extra living area in the basement is really nice too. The 3 bedrooms with queen size beds worked out great for our group. and it was nice each couple had their own bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking great meals. Having a large washer and dryer really was nice too.The Hot Tub was a blessing after long days hiking in the mountains, and the patio with the fire pit and new Gas Grill was like an extra living area. Our dog really loved the huge back yard and we knew she was safe with the high wood and mesh fencing all the way around. The bike path a block away was great and the views of the majestic mountain ranges while walking was beautiful, adding to the enjoyment of our daily walks. We even walked to Bucks T 4 for Happy hour one night.

So many activities and sights to see, we tried to do it all. We really like how there was so much to do in Big Sky Resort Mountain Village area in the summer, only 6 miles away. The tram ride to the top of Lone Peak is AMAZING, the chair lift to Everett's 8800 restaurant was really picturesque and fun. There is also so much to do in Meadow Village, 3 miles away. I'm so glad we knew about Town Center's Wednesday"s Farmer's Market. 90 booths of food, beverages, arts & crafts, plus wonderful fresh local produce. We also attended " Music in the Mountain" on Thursday. Great Band, fun people and more food vendors. Everyone really enjoyed the night. We also hiked to Ousel Falls, a quick hike to see a lovely waterfalls.The 6 mile hike to Lava Lake was long and rocky, but the views at the lake were spectacular. We fell in love with the Gallatin River House, only a mile away, and enjoyed the live music and BBQ numerous times during our stay. Our day trips included Bozeman's Sweet Pea Festival & a Down Town pub crawl, A hike to Ringing Rock State Park. and a tour of Lewis & Clark Caverns. We spent a day in Virginia City, with dinner at Wells Fargo Stage Coach Station Steak House and the show at Brewery Follies were both excellent.

We really felt like we were staying in a comfortable HOME. We even enjoyed the available backyard games, tennis rackets and balls, board games and card games. We will definitely be returning.

Excellant location/property

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at this beautiful Big Sky property. The location was ideal as it was a short drive up to the resort where we could do some hiking, ride the chair lifts, shopping etc... It was also just a short 45 minute drive into Bozeman with all that it has to offer. The home was exactly as advertised; quiet, clean & spacious. I would easily choose to stay again. Thanks!
