We were born in Philadelphia and Arlington, VA, and now live in Boston. However, we have always been able to get away from it all by hiking and skiing in the beautiful Western mountains. We have visited many places in the Western US, but have always loved Big Sky the most.
Jay purchased this Townhome in 2013
Why Jay chose Big Sky Meadow Village
Our family first visited Big Sky in 2007 and immediately fell in love with the town, community, scenery, and people. We have gone back every year since, and decided to buy our own home to enjoy in all seasons. We love the outdoors: hiking and rafting in the summer and skiing (both downhill and cross country) in the winter. After spending time in a number of different locations on the mountain and in the meadow, we centered our search to Meadow Village and found the best property on the market...in upscale Crail Ranch. We bought the barely-used townhome empty, allowing us to put all new furniture in it with the help of one of the best local interior designers, allowing us to truly call it our home. We hope you will consider sharing this special place with us.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our property is one of a handful of properties in Big Sky right on the West Fork Gallatin River (the size of a creek), allowing you to be soothed by the sights and sounds of water as you relax in our home. You can walk out the door and hop on XC ski trails, or head to the playground or hiking trails in the summer, all by foot! After a great day outdoors, enjoy our sauna and/or steam shower. We have hired the best property manager in town, that will provide you with 24/7 services and discounted ski rentals, shopping, restaurant, and spa services available only to our guests.

Great family home in big sky!
We really enjoyed our stay. The layout is great for a family. Nice views of the creek. Well maintained and a big garage.
SO MUCH TO OFFER!
Thank you! We loved our stay at your beautiful home! Enjoyed all Big Sky has to offer. Downhill skiing, snow shoes, cross country skiing, hiking and even a little fly fishing (even caught two fish). Our first trip to Montana and it is definitely a do over! Appreciate all your input prior to our visit.

P.S.- moose sighting by the park on our way out of town!
Beautiful and Excellent Location for Skiing
We had a lovely stay at Crail Ranch. 10 minute drive to Big Sky ski resort which was very convenient. We also skied the cross country trail system just outside the back door. We had convenience to everything we needed skiing, stores and restaurants. The sauna and steam room were nice after a long ski day. Crail ranch is a beautiful home with everything you could possibly need. The heated garage was a plus when you don't have to scrape off a vehicle prior to heading to the mountain. The only issue we had was trying to find a comfortable sleeping temperature. The heat seemed to be a bit touchy. We went to bed at a comfortable temp and in the middle of the night we all became excessively warm when no one touched the heat. As if the temperature would escalate on its own. As an added extra perk we woke up one morning to find a Moose exploring the backyard by the creek! Overall beautiful place and great location. We would definitely stay here again.
I am so glad you enjoyed our beautiful home and Big Sky. It is great you were able to take advantage of the very close downhill skiing and walk out the back of the house and hop on the cross country trails. The moose often can be seen in the mornings out by the creek from the large windows in the dining room…they never cease to amaze me with their size and beauty. I am sorry if you got warm at night…we had a heat pump circulator replaced recently and I will get our service company to come out and see if any adjustments are necessary. I am glad it didn't affect your overall enjoyment and view of our home. We look forward to having you back next season!
All the best!
Fantastic stay and beautiful home!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time and we appreciate the flexibility that the owner provided us. We hope to be back again!
I am so happy you and your family had a great time in our home this winter. I hope your memories will last a lifetime. We are looking forward to having you back for another vacation in the winter or summer!
Great Condo - Excellent Value
Condo is large with high quality finishes. Great location at the meadows 5 miles from Big Sky Mt
It was a pleasure sharing our home with you. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again next year.
My husband and I very much enjoyed our month stay at this beautiful Crail Ranch Townhouse. The location is a perfect setting, minutes to everything in the village and a short drive to the mountain to ski in the winter. Jay, the owner, is very attentive to all your needs and the townhouse is anointed with everything you will need. As a chef I found the kitchen to be my favorite area. Roomy and again supplied with everything your family might need. We both know you will enjoy this 4 bedroom roomy townhouse.
Terry and Dona
Yes, you can have the best of both worlds! Our beautiful, luxurious townhome is surrounded by open space and a creek, lending itself to majestic views and a tranquil environment. However, it also is centrally located, just a short walk into town where you can eat at a variety of upscale and moderately-priced restaurants and visit local shops. This makes our Crail Ranch townhome the perfect place in Big Sky for all of your activities in all seasons. In the summer, you are within a five minute walk to outdoor activities such as hiking trails, golf, tennis, basketball courts, baseball diamond, a playground, and skateboard park. You are also within a five minute walk of shops, restaurants, a grocery, fitness center, massage/spa, and bank. The town's movie theater is less than a mile away in the quaint town center. In the winter, Big Sky/Moonlight Basin Ski Resorts are just 7 miles away, and you can catch a free shuttle bus to either resort if you don't feel like driving. Cross country skiers can ski-in/out of our luxurious townhome right onto Lone Mountain Ranch's 85km groomed trail system. Or strap on the skis and head to Town Center for a warm lunch and/or beverage. An outdoor skating rink and public fire pit are special touches in this winter wonderland. Bighorn sheep, elk, moose, and deer are just some of the animals frequently seen in Big Sky. Historic Yellowstone National Park is 45 minutes away, where you can hike for miles and miles, where you will enjoy the wonders of our nation's finest National Park. Take a guided tour from Big Sky, or explore on your own. See buffaloes, moose, and many other animals in the park. Don't miss the famous Old Faithful geyser erupt into the sky like clockwork, along with too- numerous-to-count waterfalls and other special attractions in the park. You can also enjoy fly fishing, rafting, horseback riding, sleigh rides, and zip lines near by.
