We have stayed here in both summer and winter and it is amazing. All high quality appointments as well as extraordinary views. Location is perfect. Owner and Property Manager are excellent - both attentive and responsive to all your needs. We will definitely return. Best VRBO we have stayed in in our 20+ years for renting through VRBO.

Visited Montana for a fall fly fishing getaway with customers. The accommodations were exceptional, which set the tone for our trip upon arrival. The place has everything you would expect in a luxury rental and the proximity to the fall fishing cannot be beat. The management for the rental was so professional it made renting the place seamless and easy. If you are considering a trip to take advantage of fall fishing season this is the place to stay.

What a wonderful house and experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided on Rustic Timbers mainly for the convenience of ski in/ski out, but were so pleased that there was much, much more! Beginning with great communication from the owner, every aspect of our stay was made for lasting memories. With a stunning view of the mountains and gorgeous sunrises, Rustic Timbers is in an ideal location within Moonlight Basin. Although technically a duplex, we never even heard a peep from our neighbors. The entire house is tastefully decorated and there are many amenities for the comfort of the vacationer. The bedrooms were surprisingly spacious, and the open concept living/dining/family area was perfect for family time! Loved the hot tub! And skiing in and out could not have been easier. Finally, a shout out to the property manager introduced in advance to us by the owner -- she was super friendly, attentive, and helped make our stay the best! I would HIGHLY recommend Rustic Timbers to anyone contemplating a stay at Big Sky. Unless of course we can stay there again next year!!
