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 Big Sky

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.

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!

Felt like coming home!

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather was unseasonably warm, we were still able to get some spring skiing in for our spring break! While it's about 20 mins to the ski hill, the home is also about a 20min drive away from a ton of hiking/snowshoeing trails in Yellowstone. We hiked Specimen trail this trip and actually did need the snowshoes. The recently upgraded Riverhouse Grill is the closest restaurant (+/- 1 mile) and was a great option for us and our 1.5 year old - who enjoyed running down by the river. The neighborhood is quiet and family-oriented, and our daughter even made friends with one of the neighbor kids at the park (which is conveniently located within the same cul de sac). The owners also recently upgraded the laundry appliances - which was a nice treat. We will definitely be back - thank you for the hospitality.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home in a great location! Minutes away from shopping centers, dining, a movie theater, grocery and liquor stores, and of course skiing. Less than an hour away from Bozeman. Enjoyed local hot springs and nature hikes, would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Big Sky. Comfortably sleeps 13. House was equipped with all the essentials - spices for cooking, baby gear (highchair, stroller, gate, park down the street), outdoor games, towels and toiletries, card and board games, and (to my surprise) coffee! The view from the living room and master bed room is incredible. Used the hot tub almost every night! Owners are friendly, Kaia was a great communicator in getting the reservation set up. Will definitely be returning and recommending this cozy house to friends and family. Thanks again for a great stay!

We came out mid March and it was awesome! The snow was starting to melt but both Big Sky Resort and Bridger Bowl had fantastic runs. The local shuttle bus stops right at the street corner by the house, so I could catch first lift without stressing out my lady. The house is beautiful with lots of room for activites and many people, but the real fun is in Big Sky town center. There are 2 solid breweries, lots of food and shopping and a cute little movie theatre just 5 minutes away from the house. This is a wonderful town to vacation in and anear amazing house to stay in!
