Beautiful house and great ski in/ski out
We had a great ski week and love the house. Love Big Sky!!
House was beautiful. Great Ski access. Want to rent it again for next year!
Glad that you enjoyed your stay in our Big Sky home and were able to get in some great skiing at the resort. We look forward to hosting you again next year!
This was our third year staying in Cowboy Heaven. The ski-in/ski-out couldn't be better at this property and parking was great, however, I would rate the house itself as "okay". The kitchen was not as well equipped as other homes we have stayed in. Property management was responsive to address our needs quickly, however they showed up at our door two days before our departure asking if we were leaving that day (he had incorrect departure information). The day of our departure the cleaning crew was waiting in the driveway before checkout time and they were there emptying/refilling the spa while we were eating our breakfast. Maintenance of the home needs some attention (ceiling in second master was damaged from a water issue in the garage upstairs, significant efforts were needed to get the dining room patio door to lock, BBQ grill was not in very good condition, toilet in the master bath needed special attention to prevent it from running after use, fireplace was impossible to use without smoking up the house, and all of the mattresses were less than desirable). All things considered, we had a great time in an absolutely beautiful place and would do it again in a heartbeat!
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, we truly value your feedback and are constantly looking for ways to improve upon our service and product. We have reached out to the owners of the home to make sure they are aware of the need for a better equipped kitchen. We have since detailed the grill to ensure it is fully cleaned and are currently addressing the other maintenance needs mentioned. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future!
Great home in a great location!
We just returned from a 5 day stay at this wonderful ski in/ski out home with a group of 10 (4 adults and 6 kids). We were all enjoyed our stay and the accommodations a great deal!
The adults took the two downstairs bedrooms which could both be considered a "master" bedroom with their own private bathrooms. The laundry was also downstairs which we used every day basically (they had detergent on hand). The two youngest kids slept in the main floor bedroom, and the 4 oldest kids setup in the loft (where there were 2 twin beds with trundle beds underneath, along with another bathroom). The kids absolutely LOVED the loft...it was their favorite part of the home along with the hot tub! The loft gave them their own area to play games, watch TV and just hang out which was great. The only downside of the loft is the TV is quite old and we couldn't hook up a DVD player or iPad to it for the kids. Also, the open nature of the loft meant us adults needed to keep the noise down at night once they went to bed, but after a full day on the mountain the kids usually crashed pretty hard anyways and it was never a big issue. There also were many games and books in the house which our kids really enjoyed!
We used the hot tub and wood burning fireplace daily, and enjoyed the great views from the living room as well. They had ample wood in the garage and the supplies in the kitchen were adequate for making our meals every night. We didn't have to buy things like paper towels, soap, etc. but we did bring things like paper plates/bowls/etc to make cleanup easier for the kids (the # of bowls were a bit light in the cupboard). The description on the VRBO site for existing supplies in the kitchen could be improved we thought.
As for the ski in/out access, we now realize that with most of our kids being beginners/novice skiers or snowboarders, we could not FULLY use the ski in/out access because the trip from the home since the trip down to Madison Base was a bit difficult for their skill level. However, as they improved we did have some kids who made the ski in/out which was awesome! The garage is perfect to hang and dry all your gear too...great setup for ski in/out. The house is closest to Madison Base so we used that area almost exclusively. It was perfect in that it was never crowded and had some nice green runs with an AWESOME ski school we would recommend to any family.
Overall we had an amazing experience in this home and on the mountain. We will be back!
Thank you for leaving us such a detailed review, we truly value your feedback and are constantly looking for ways to better our guest's stay. We will make sure to pass along your suggestions to the homeowner. Happy to hear you all had such a wonderful stay in Moonlight Mountain Home! We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you all again in the future.
Fantastic place to kick back and relax in Big Sky
My family and I completely enjoyed staying here over Labor Day weekend 2017. The house was clean and cozy with plenty of room for all 8 of us. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed listening to the elk bugling in the evenings. The beds were very comfy and we all slept fantastic! Instructions for the home were very easy to follow and clearly laid out. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

This is a great home year round with easy access to hiking and biking trails in the summer and some of the best ski-in/ski-out access to Big Sky Resort's ski terrain in the winter months.
We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future for your next visit to Big Sky!
Wonderful host - Upgraded us to even more lovely home!
Due to circumstances beyond the host's control, the host was unable to have us stay in the property as we had reserved it, so they upgraded us to an even more beautiful property, no extra charge. So while i cannot review this particular property, I give the hosts 5 stars for excellent service and quick responses to every question. Really top notch!
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and your experience with Natural Retreats. While we would have preferred to have had you stay in the original property you booked we were unable to provide all of the amenities you were promised. I am glad to hear that your alternate property worked out well for you.
I am happy to report to all future guests that the hot tub has been replaced with a brand new tub and all amenities of this home are in perfect working order.
