The condo was beautiful. Best vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated, cozy, clean and welcoming! It was an incredible place to stay! It's located a few miles up the road from Big Sky Resort, so the quieter and calmer vibe was welcomed by our family. Roads are a little confusing at first, but definitely worth it. We stayed in mid-August. We arrived on Sunday evening and departed on Sat. We did not have any problems for the entirety of our stay. We chose to purchase the membership at Moonlight Lodge, where we utilized the outdoor heated pool, hot tub and workout room regularly. We had the facilities to ourselves most of the time and that was really enjoyable. The lodge was luxurious and staff was helpful and friendly. Through the lodge we booked horseback riding with Lone Mountain Ranch. We had no experience with horses, yet learned so much and had a wonderful ride through the mountains. Also through Moonlight Lodge we had access to the lake and we went canoeing. We booked the guided tour through Yellowstone Park. It was quite pricey, but definitely worth it. They picked us up outside the condo and provided lunch and drove us easily to the best spots. Through Big Sky Resort we went on the Nature Zipping tour. Everyone loved it. Several locals said they enjoyed this more so than the Adventure Zip Lining tour. Guides were very knowledgeable and fun. Also through Big Sky, we did the Lone Peak Expedition. For those who have height fears or claustrophobia just be thoughtful. We went at the 8:05 time slot and we're driven in a slow, windy truck route to a tram that took us to the top for about 20 min. The view was beautiful, but everywhere you look the views in Big Sky and especially Moonlight Basin, are stunning. We went on an easy hike to Ousel Falls(about 1.6 miles) and that was so worth it. Very pretty. We ate several times at Compass Cafe. Our daughter can't eat egg and they had a few delicious options for her. We also went to the Cinnamon Lodge all you can eat Taco Tuesday night for $12. The Farmer's Market in Big Sky is on Wed from 5-8 and we had delicious Tri-Tip beef sandwiches. Our last night in Big Sky we ate at the River House, recommended by locals. It specializes in BBQ and did not disappoint. Best pulled pork sandwich ever! We have three children ages, 8, 9 and 13. They agreed this has been the best vacation so far. It exceeded our expectations in all areas! We termed it Luxury Adventure!

Nicest accommodations in 20 years of taking ski trips out west

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well maintained, modern yet rustic and cozy. A 1 minute walk to slope and lift or 1 minute walk to Moonlight Lodge where you can buy lift tickets or eat in a sit down restaurant. Great views, nice hot tub, comfortable beds. Easy to love this place.

An enjoyable stay for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Saddle Ridge C5 last July. As an expat family, we stayed in many hotels around the world, but it was our first time renting a private home for vacation, so I was a bit nervous not knowing what to expect. However our stay at C5 turned out to be a very pleasant one, encouraging us to do more private vacation home renting instead of hotels in the future -after all, we got a lot more space to hang around as a family, to live like a family, with kitchen, grill, and laundry etc. The decoration of the whole house is appealing yet not overwhelming, the view from the windows or balcony is wonderful, the surrounding is quiet and peaceful in summer, with little wild flowers blossoming. We drove to Yellowstone a couple of times, about an hour but was a beautiful drive. We also drove to Bozeman a few times to stock on groceries. Our two kids enjoyed a range of activities at the base camp. We also did whitewater rafting in the nearby Gallatin River. It is worth noting that the manager or owner of the house is friendly and prompt in responding my emails. There was welcoming pack with tourist information and coffee/candies on the kitchen counter upon our arrival. Overall we all enjoyed our stay and would return if possible or recommend to our friends.

Awesome President's Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I booked this unit for our stay at Moonlight/Big Sky for President's Day weekend and could not have been happier. The two bedroom suites accomodated our two couples while the singles crashed in the bunks in the spare room. We had 6 total people but the condo definitely had room for 9 as advertised. The unit was clean, very well furnished/comfortable, and very reasonably priced. The owner was extremely friendly and responsive anytime we had any questions.

The location can't be beat. Moonlight Lodge is literelly a 1-minute walk, where you can buy lift tickets, grab a bite to eat, and relax at the bar. You can be out the door and on the Iron Horse quad lift in about 2 minutes, assuming you were smart and got your lift tickets the night before. The area shuttle (free) stops at the lodge, so this condo is perfect for those opting to go without a rental car. So much accessible terrain, it would take weeks to ski it all...and lift lines on the Moonlight side were all but non-existant on one of the busiest ski weekends of the year. We did opt to pop over to the Big Sky side a few times (one lift ticket gets you everywhere) and the lines were appreciably longer, but still nothing like I've experienced in Colorado.

Overall, this place gets our resounding praise and we'd book it again right now for next year if we knew we'd be able to make it back!

Everything we were hoping it would be!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this townhome from the moment we arrived. It was beautifully decorated, spotless, roomy and in a beautiful spot with perfect views. We loved staying there. We took advantage of the grill, the hot tub, the user friendly kitchen and laundry, DVD player, and perfect for relaxing living area. Every detail has been considered! I love that there were tons of places to stash our stuff and lots of room. We enjoyed the shops in the village, the beautiful hike to Oussil falls, seeing elk as we were driving to the trail head, and nearby whitewater rafting. The people we met in the area, from the helpful visitors center, to the shops, were fun, friendly and helpful. We did day trips from there to Yellowstone, and Bozeman. If we had had more time we would have hiked more of the trails. There were so many! 5 stars!

Saddle Ridge

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Saddle Ridge C5 the first week of April 2013. We had a wonderful spring ski vacation. The condo furnishings are very nice and the listing photos are accurate. The proximity to the lodge and ski lift was very convenient. We had no problems with the facilities, hot tub, grill, internet, etc. It is great place and will stay here again when we ski Big Sky.
