Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Ski In and Ski Out Access

Spectacular views of rugged mountains and pristine pine forest combined with close proximity to the Mountain Village set the stage here for all your Montana adventures, any time of year. Privately located in a serene wooded setting about halfway between Moonlight and Big Sky Resort, you may even catch a glimpse of a friendly fox or resident moose, or perhaps the occasional bear. Well-suited for families, groups of friends/colleagues, up to 4 vacationing couples, or the annual guys/gals getaway, this 3,000 sq. foot ski-accessible log home provides plenty of space to gather, or spread out, in style. Infusing rustic elegance with modern amenities, no detail has been overlooked. The cozy abode features a log interior and open floor plan, with windows framing Lone Peak and Andesite Mountain like precious pieces of art. On the breathtaking back deck whip up some sizzling steaks on the propane grill, or just relax and take it all in. Cap off the day with a starlit soak in the new outdoor hot tub. Savor the good life up here! Minutes from Lone Mountain, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, White Otter is your base camp to lifelong memories and fun for everyone. Make this happy alpine retreat a tradition in your travels.

Ski Rating 3: (Anticipated opening date for White Otter lift is December 16, but the lift may open earlier in the season depending on snow conditions)

This property is ski accessible vs. true ski-in/out. It is possible to come in and out on skis, but poling and skating will be necessary.

Ski Out:

Two options. Trail is groomed immediately to left of house. Ski the trail to the bottom and turn right. You will need to skate/pole for approximately 100 yards to lift. Option two is to go to the top of the driveway put skis on and skate or walk the road to the end of the cul-de-sac that connects with the lift. Take White Otter lift to White Wing Run.

Ski In:

Lower Morningstar to second set of Powder Ridge signs on the left. Follow the signs for White Otter Access and follow the access trails back towards the White Otter skier bridge. Cross over the bridge and immediately turn right on the groomed access and ski back under the chair lift. Follow to the bottom of the White Otter Chair and take a right turn on the groomed access behind the lift. Follow this slightly down sloping trail for 100 yards back to area behind the cabin and hike up to the cabin. Option 2 is to ski past the bottom of the chair lift to the cul-de-sac and skate or walk the road back to the cabin.

The cabin was nice but what really made it great was the scenery and seeing deer and even a fox.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was surrounded by big pines and wild flowers. It was just like roughing it but we had the cabin. Lots of wild life

Great property! Very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this cabin was wonderful. All 4 of our families fit very well in this spacious cabin. The upper game room and large deck were utilized often. We saw 2-3 deer outside almost every morning. The property management company was also very helpful. We'd definitely stay here again.

Great for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families together. There was plenty of room to spread out or spend time together. Property was clean and properly stocked for what we needed. We saw moose right near the cabin. Plenty of activities/attractions near by and not a bad drive to Yellowstone national park. Whitewater rafting was the group favorite. Also enjoyed horseback riding and trout fishing, all nearby. Call ahead to restraunts to make sure they are open or still serving food. Summer is apparently the slow time and it was hit or miss to find somewhere open. Management service did a good job prior to check in to make sure we had the information we needed.

Awesome property and management company!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Group of nine men who ski every year at different resorts enjoyed 35 White Otter Cabin more than any location we have visited, Big Sky exceeds all expectations as a destination. House is ideal for dedicated skiers, families or couples who want to relax. Very close to Big Sky base with shuttle provided, White Otter lift used every day by some of group to access mountain, easy ski access.Book Big Sky staff are excellent!
