Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Private Home

Postcard views of Lone Peak and a serene wooded setting will provide the perfect backdrop any time of year here for your Big Sky adventures. This private log-home resides on 20 acres of pristine pine forest, yet is just minutes from Meadow Village/Town Center, and only 7 miles from the biggest skiing in America. Enjoy easy access to local shops, restaurants, golf, activities/events, and over 80 km of groomed Nordic trails. Even with that much excitement nearby, don't be too surprised when you spot an elk or moose, or even a bear passing through the wilderness terrain surrounding this lodge. Ideal for larger (or multiple) families, groups, or 4-5 vacationing couples, this 4,000 sq. foot house has plenty of well-appointed space to gather, or just kick back, in style. A stunning, floor-to-ceiling river rock fireplace surrounded by picture windows framing Lone Mountain sets a magical mood in the home's main room. Soak in the alpenglow while relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, or catch a transcendent sunset over the peak from the expansive back deck. Also, there is a caretaker onsite in an apartment separate from the house who is available to provide local knowledge of the area and Yellowstone Park expertise. Secluded but still near the heart of all the action, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, this incredible hideaway makes a convenient and exquisite starting point for wherever the day takes you!

No ski access from home.

About Big Sky Vacation Rentals

We came to Big Sky in 1996 and fell in love with the wide open spaces. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Fabulous sking and fishing. Beautiful wildflowers and wildlife right outside the house.

Big Sky Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2000

Why Big Sky Vacation Rentals chose Big Sky

We decided to build a house in Skywood because of the 20 acres of privacy yet minutes away from skiing, golf, fishing, hiking, restaurants and shopping

What makes this house unique

This property is very unique because it is private. There are three levels to the house and numerous areas where people can participate in various activities. Plus you can hike, snowshoe on the property.

Will come back again!

  • 5 of 5

Our group loved this home. We had children with and it was big and easy for everyone to have plenty of space. The views alone are worth it! We likely will be coming back yearly now with hopes to get this home! Had all the items you could possible need from kitchen stuff to bathroom items. This house had it all.

Beautiful house, excellent stay, but a few suggestions for future renters

  • 4 of 5

The stay overall was great; however, I have a few suggestions for future renters.

1. The road is very icy and steep, it would have been nice to have been aware of that prior to the stay, as cars in the winter can have a difficult time getting up to the house and twice a car went into the ditch during our stay

2. The email explained that someone from the staff would come to give us some pointers and answer any questions or set up a meeting to do it the next day, that never occurred at all

3. The house was very chilly, and the main bedroom was said to have a heating unit near the bathroom, but we could not find that anywhere and had to use a heater in the room the whole stay

During our busiest time of the year we do apologize that your check-in greeting did not happen.

Lovely home, with incredible view of Lone Peak

  • 5 of 5

The architect did a nice job of orienting this log home so that the peak is framed within the LR and DR and BR windows, and the large lot allowed them to remove just enough trees to allow you to see the mountain while still hiding the lights from town in the foreground.

The location is super - very private, but short drive to ski lifts, grocery, restaurants.

The house had everything we needed.

Just a few points for the owner/manager:

Hot tub was too cold on day-1 (understandably due to the fact that they replace the water before each new renter).

Foosball table needs one leg-less player replaced - parts are easily found online.

Pull-out couches were not great for sleeping (but teenagers managed to sleep somehow)

Seemed like they use the mud-room to store porch furniture - would rather have seen a few benches and coat hooks in the mud/boot room.

Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after sundown so we couldn't see the view out the back of the house until morning. It was unbelievable! Pictures don't do it justice. The house was well maintained and the property manager came over the first night to make certain we were settled and to explain everything. The house is so well equipped too - everything we could possibly have needed in the kitchen was there. The caretaker was also really nice and understanding even though visitors didn't pay attention to the "no parking here" sign. The location was great too - snow covered road to the house was very drive-able, easy access to the main roads to get to Yellowstone and Bozeman and yet not too far away from the resort itself. Definitely a "hideaway" we'd love to visit again!

Fantastic Rental !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time on this vacation. The house was impeccable; very high quality and stocked extremely well. The location is perfect; on a good deal of land so you feel secluded, yet close to everything. We saw a doe and her young fawn feeding on the lawn every morning, and were able to watch through the floor to ceiling windows - what a wonderful way to start each day! The management company was also a true pleasure to work with. We will definitely be back!
