About the owner: I am a retired entrepreneur and founder of the Calendar Club, the world's leading seasonal retailer. My wife Zoey was a model and fitness instructor for Princess cruises when she was younger. When we met in 2005 she was doing interior design work for private clients. I became a PSIA certified ski instructor at 60 and teach skiing part time at one of Big Sky's two world class ski resorts. I am also an avid fly fisherman who has fished all over the world from Argentina to Mongolia. I teach fly casting/fishing to friends and family. In the past, I have been a professional trainer of bird dogs and now have a Brittany and English Setter that hunt with me often on my pheasant lease. Four years ago we were introduced to the fast growing sport of pickleball. Since then, we became official USAPA pickleball ambassadors and started the Big Sky Pickleball Club which now boasts 100 members. We have two world class pickleball courts on the property and teach the game.
Why the Owner Chose Big Sky, MT, USA:
When I decided to buy a mountain home it had to meet two important criteria. It had to be close to 'world class' skiing and fly fishing. I narrowed my search down to three places in the United States that had both, and decided on Big Sky for many reasons. The first time I saw this property I knew this was a special place. Where else could a person have a trout stream in their back yard, two world class ski resorts out thier front door and be within 60 miles of some of the most famous and sacred trout rivers in the world? The property I bought provided me with a blank canvas on which I have created my art. That art consists of hardscapes, landscapes, gardening and home improvements that make the Southfork Lodge a life style and not just real estate.
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
When you stay in the Southfork guest cabin you are not just getting a rental... You are experiencing a lifestyle. You never know if there will be a Moose outside your door or a family of ducks in our pond. You will experience the 'Wild West' while being pampered with down comforters, flannel sheets and coffee on your deck overlooking the rivers. We're wild... But not uncivilized. For pickleball enthusiasts, this is paradise. With our two dedicated courts and the amazing spectator's pavilion, we are able to hold clinics, tournaments and exhibitions.
