About the property

Luxury home in Moonlight area, great ski access!

Please note the home directly to the North East of Robin’s Nest was recently completed and there will be some landscape construction this spring/summer. It is possible during daytime hours that you may hear some of this activity.

Panoramic, postcard views of the Spanish Peaks and Lone Mountain in every direction, and the serene, wooded highland surroundings provide the perfect backdrop any time of year here for your Big Sky adventures. This private, ski-in/ski-out, Montana dream home is situated on a spacious lot high atop the Moonlight slopes in the neighborhood of the Challenger lift. Live the VIP life at elevation! Ideal for huge (or multiple) families, larger groups, or 5-6 vacationing couples, this 4,500 sq. foot chateau has plenty of well-appointed space to gather, or spread out, in style. Grand and luxurious, yet cozy and rustic, pinch yourself this place is real. Soak in the alpenglow while relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, or catch a sublime sunset over the peak as you kick back on the vast deck. Take it all in. Beautifully secluded but still close enough to all the action, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, this majestic alpine retreat makes an inspired starting point for wherever the day takes you!

Beautiful Mountain Home!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property in August 2016 as a home base for 13 while going back and forth to Yellowstone. It was a huge house with enough room for everyone and very tastefully decorated. The beds were comfy and the amenities were good enough. There was construction going on in the lot in front of us but they seemed very considerate of our coming and goings. The only thing I would point out is there were no staples in the kitchen (Flour, sugar etc) as in some of the VRBO rentals we have been to, all in all a great time!

Fabulous Base for a 2-family Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property, even better than the pictures! Large spaces, taseteful furnishings, plenty of linens, well stocked kitchen, TVs all around with DirecTV, gaming console, board games, card table, foosball table, etc., big two car garage, snowshoes, inflatable tube to sled downhill, great deck/hot tub area, mud/ski room with full washer/dryer. There were 10 of us all together (2 Famililes, 4 adults and 6 kids ages 8-17) and could not have had a better place in which to enjoy our ski vacation. Ski out access is literally 1 step off the mud room in a groomed trail that leads down to Pony Express. Ski in access is also easy once you orient yourself on the mountain (Ski down Blue Moon Run and stay on your left hand side as if you were going down to MoonlightLodge/Iron Horse, you will see the first house in the Diamond Hitch development on your right (the one with 2 DirecTV anntennas, make a right turn before that house. Follow the groomed flatish trail down to a fork and stay on your left hand side for the Diamond Hitch Run (the right hand side is the Twin Tunnels run) if you see a Pirate Flag on your right side marking one of the homes you are on the right track. A couple of hundred feet below you will literally come to a place where you "cross the street (Diamond Hitch Road)" there was plenty of snow so you could ski through it. Immediately after crossing the street, make a right before the first trees parallel to the street until the trail makes a left on its own and you will immediately see the mud room on your right). Again once you do it once, its very easy. All in all a fantastic time. Will definetely come back!

50th wedding anniversary celebration

Great location for our family celebration! Beautiful home, with all the amenities. What a fantastic Montana experience for family from Texas, Virginia, and Montana. All 9 of us enjoyed our stay in "The Robbins Nest," Big Sky, as well as a day in Yellowstone National Park.

Wonderful Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 days in Big Sky and we had a fabulous time. There were 13 of us and the house was perfect. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and the bedrooms were comfortable and provided a great space for each person. The views are magnificent and we even ran into a moose 50 yds. from the house on the first night! The hot tub was great and the back porch was a fun place to hang out. We definitely felt at home. The only suggestion I have for summer time visitors is to remember bug spray. The mosquitoes were out in full force. This trip provided many terrific memories for our family!
