About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Gather your family or closest friends and get ready to have a trip you won't soon forget! Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, our family home is the perfect gathering spot for a mountain vacation. Equally fabulous in the summer or winter, spend your vacation skiing or snowboarding the 'Biggest Skiing in America', snowmobiling out the front door, or navigating the rapids while white water rafting in the beautiful Montana rivers used to film such feature films as 'The River Runs Through It.' While we can't guarantee a run-in with Brad Pitt, we are confident Montana's beauty will leave you wanting more. Experience all the nearby activities Big Sky has to offer, from horseback riding to fly fishing to snowmobiling or 4-wheeling Buck's Peak, mere yards from the front door. Check out the diverse restaurants, shopping and other entertainment in Meadow and Mountain Villages or take a day trip to nearby Yellowstone National Park. Our family friendly home is ideal for large groups or several families or friends to stay together while enjoying our spacious rooms, or hot tub on our deck with a view of the mountains that can't be beat! This home is perfect for a group of snowmobiliers too, with a huge lot, drive through driveway, and right next to some of the best sledding this side of the Rockies!

About Anna Martinson

We're a brother and sister who own this house together with our families. We're from Minnesota, but loved coming to Big Sky so much, we decided to buy a vacation home here.

Anna Martinson purchased this house in 2009

Why Anna Martinson chose Yellowstone Country

We were looking for a vacation home that had an airport close by, snowmobiling or 4-wheeling right from the doorstep, world class skiing and snowboarding, and a number of other activities to keep our family members busy, such as fly fishing, white water rafting, horseback riding, biking and hiking. The views are amazing, and the access to a wide variety of restaurants, shopping and leisure activities is excellent.

What makes this house unique

Snowmobile right from the front door without need to further trailer (snow conditions permitting). We are centrally located about 45 minutes from Bozeman on one end and 45 minutes from West Yellowstone National Park. We are about 15 minutes from Big Sky Ski Lodge. Transportation is available to and from the mountain.

Great vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

Great property, plenty of room for two couples with 2 toddlers and 2 teens to spread out and relax. Beautiful view and we got to see elk almost every morning from the house. Very clean, and organized.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and very nice home. We used as home base when visiting Yellowstone and it worked out perfect. The park entrance is about 40-45 minutes away. Comfortably slept all eight of us and the views were spectacular. Highly recommend!

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and comfortable and had lots of space. It was well supplied with everything we needed. All we had to do was bring our food. We enjoyed the hot tub and grill on the deck. It is a beautiful setting and close to so many things to do!

Beautiful property in the middle of Big Sky

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, well equipped, and everything we needed. Anna was very gracious and helpful all along the way. I had many questions as we were hosting friends from out of town for our wedding nearby, Anna did everything that she could to ensure that I had a good experience and that my family was well taken care of. The house is clean, the kitchen and living areas are large and welcoming, beds are comfy, and the hot tub is a fun bonus! We would highly recommend this spot for both quality and value if you're looking for a home away from home in Big Sky. Thank you Anna!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at the house. It was in the perfect location for us: Close enough to town but also far enough away that we had privacy and the kids had room to run around. The only recommendation I would offer is to have more screens for the windows. There were plenty that we were not able to open due to the lack of screens. Lastly, not sure if it matters, but you have a very friendly little mouse who I think has taken up residence underneath the hot tub! Just thought we would let you know. Overall, loved the house and we had a great time with our family. Also, thanks for the food recommendations. the kids loved the Riverhouse and it was nice to just walk over for supper.
