Loved everything about it. Only things that could use improvement are the master bed could use an upgrade. Otherwise, we loved it. Great tv, comfortable chairs and couches, nice hot tub and great views.

Big fun in Big Sky at Cowboy Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The cabin with a great view had plenty of room for the 3 of us, had a well equipped kitchen, a nice hot tub steps from the door and the access to the slopes just a few steps more. We enjoyed playing wii in the evening and watching the beautiful sun rises every morning. Very convenient for lunch time access to the cabin. I would gladly stay here again.

Great place. Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced for the area.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a great place to stay while in the Yellowstone area. The views from the porch were outstanding and the cabin itself was very well equipped and comfortable. The rental process was very easy and everyone we dealt with were prompt and professional.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Location, Location, Location!!! The Cowboy Heaven cabins are so easy to ski in- ski-out. It's nice you can park your car and never use it while you stay. The check in crew had so much information, little tidbits and good advice. The living area of our cabin was perfect for four of us. The bedrooms needed updating and new mattresses. Bring your own pillow, even with two or three of their pillows we were all struggling to sleep. I would recommend this for two couples or a family with two to three children.

Owner's Response: Marilynn, Thank you so much for staying with us and I am so glad that you enjoyed all the helpful information from our staff. Bedding is so personal, but I want to be sure that people who read your comments understand that all the bedding (throw pillows, pillows comforters and duvets) were replaced in the past 12 months including one of the queen mattresses. In addition, the bunk set was recently custom made for the cabin along with the new dresser in that room. In the master the headboard is also brand new. I am very sorry you found the pillows uncomfortable. We try to provide a variety of pillows in each of our units and if you stay with us in the future and are having trouble sleeping we would be happy to bring some additional options for you to try. Again, many thanks for your comments and we hope to see you again in the future! Sincerely, Kirsten King, Owner Big Sky Vacation Rentals

Perfect cabin for Big Sky ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults and kids aged 12 and 14) spent a week at Bandit Hideaway in February 2015. The cabin is located on the Moonlight side of Big Sky with very good ski in/ski out access to the Powder River ski trail with room to park a car just next door. The cabin was cozy for the four of us with a queen in one bedroom and a bunk bed in the other. With our bags and ski gear it was a bit crowded for the four of us. The kitchen was adequate (we cooked several meals) and the living area was comfortable. The main living area is heated only by the gas stove so it was a bit difficult to maintain a good temperature but we managed. This cabin is the 2nd one in from the ski trail so that was the best part and you can leave your skis on the covered deck. They even cleaned the snow off the deck each morning which was nice. The absolute best part of this cabin was the private hot tub – nothing like coming back from a day of skiing and being able to enjoy your own hot tub on the deck with nice views of the mountains. Aside from skiing, we enjoyed a great day trip down to Yellowstone (on Yellowstone Alpen Guides) which we would highly recommend.

Here are our pros and cons (just to be honest):


• Location – can’t beat the ski in/ski out access. Nice peaceful spot with great views.

• Hot tub – what more can you ask for?

• Full kitchen – saved a lot of money by making our own meals

• Wii – kids enjoyed the wii in the living room

• Washer/Dryer (except you can’t use it at night since it is in the bedroom)


• Could have been cleaner – under the beds was dirtier than I would have expected and one of the showers definitely needed some scrubbing. Found some trash from previous renter in drawers.

• Queen bedroom sure could have used more storage room – hard to live out of suitcases in such a tight spot.

• Cabin temperature was hard to control – ceiling fans would have been a big help.

• Toilets – constantly had to unclog them. Probably low flow ones but having to constantly plunge a toilet is just not that enjoyable.

But I would most definitely stay here again. We were very happy with our choice.
