About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-24)

The quite friendly atmosphere of Big Sky Montana awaits you. This is the last pristine ski areas of the west remaining, almost 6,000 acres, largest Ski area in United States. There are never lines at either the ski hill or the grocery store. Small town atmosphere, with Village activities all the time, and Mountain activities year round.

The scenery and views are ones you have only seen in magazines or movies. This is the best-kept secret in America. It also has the Gallatin River, Yellowstone River and Madison Rivers, all year round trophy trout rivers with world-class fly-fishing. It is also near four golf courses. It has downhill skiing, cross country skiing and heli skiing, and sledding hills. It features horseback riding into the mountains all seasons. There are hot spring swimming pools open all 4 seasons. There are individual snowmobiles for rental or large snow cat excursions into Yellowstone Park that will show you geysers, winter animals and Yellowstone Park Lodge. There are also moonlight sled rides into the woods to large tents with cowboy dinners and entertainment cowboy style. They turn to wagon rides with dinner when the snow is gone. There is no end to the entertainment in the months without snow. There is hiking, mountain bike riding park excursions, white water rafting, high mountain lake fishing and river fishing, zip lines and children's activities and village activities including rodeos and hockey and concerts and art shows nearly every weekend year around.

Our home features five bedrooms, full-size kitchen, two laundry rooms, two family rooms, and 3 fireplaces, one outdoor. The home is made of 90% reclaimed lumber, which came from a 100-year-old dairy farm in Nampa Idaho.

The home features two large antler chandlers. Enjoy a cold night on the deck huddled up close to the fireplace. Radiant floor heating through out the house will sure keep you nice and toasty, no cold tile here. The home is halfway up the mountain road between the mountain village and the meadow village, four minutes either way to Big Sky and Moonlight Basin Ski Areas.

It is 45 miles from Yellowstone National Park and 40 miles from Bozeman, Montana. Start making memories in our rustic get-away with your family in our Big Sky retreat. This home is especially set up for large families. It has additional small kitchen in basement. Two Dishwashers, Two laundry rooms 2 fridges, internet TV, TVs in most rooms, Hot tub in backyard, and jetted tub and shower in master bedroom. It has sleds for children, an indoor grill, and a state of the art kitchen with under the counter ice maker.

The home does have wireless Internet and internet tv, but who has time for these when there are so many activities outside.

The rates and the calender are both up to date. Feel free to email me and ask any question you may have. Thanks

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our family has been coming to Big Sky for 14 years now. We started in a small condo, and as our family grew, we traded up and added properties, till we finally built our dream home. We have 4 married children and 9 grand children. This home fits us all. It has everything our large family requires. We are from Idaho, but now live in Georgia. We bought the remains from a 100 year old milk farm and reused the lumber that was salvaged from this farm. We now have Idaho and Montana and Georgia all in one. This home is warm and cozy with in-floor heat and the perfect location. It is in the most beautiful place on earth. It is remote enough to give us seclusion, yet around enough natural wonders to keep us exercised and entertained and challenged. Our family counts the days till we return to our 'Pontana.' as referred to by our grand children.

Why the Owner Chose Antler Ridge, Big Sky, MT, USA:
Big Sky is the perfect location, in the woods, but close to skiing, restaurants, grocery stores. fishing, Yellowstone, and naturally occuring moose, elk, deer, bears, and bighorn sheep, that always have the right of way and our wonder and respect. There is never a shortage of things to do, and never a moment when it is inappropriate to fall out and snooze till you wake up to graze through the pantry. Or, you may want to hop in the car and head to the ski hill for a couple of runs. Lazy days or energetic hikes are here for the taking. Bozeman is a 40 minute drive through the most beautiful montain peakes and along the Gallatin River that begs you to stop and toss in a line, 365 days every year. It is a quaint town that has everything you could ever need, except Wall Street, and Times Square. It now has direct flights from Atlanta and other major cities. The airport is being expanded, much to our dismay. We like parking across the street with $3.00 parking fees and leaving our keys at the delta counter. At last, our mecca is being discovered.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has radiant floor heat, cozy fireplaces, comfy beds, 2 of everything including diswashers, washers, dryers, ovens, refrigerators, and ski areas. You can cross country ski out the front door and sled down the road, as there are only 2 houses on it. The ski hill is less than 10 minutes away. There are snowflakes on the floor that sparkle, and antler chandeliers to remind you of the wonders around you. You can enjoy the hot tub in the back yard and jump out of it into the snow banks. There is nothing like Montana and the comfort of our home. The biggest resort in the US , where kids ski for free is 4 miles away. You, too, may return every year for the rest of your life.
