Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 15-16)

Welcome to the old Big Sky Firehouse. Located in The Meadows of Big Sky Montana, at 3145 Two Moons Rd, across the street from the 16th hole of Big Sky Golf Course. The character of this property is enhanced because a portion of it was once the Big Sky Volunteer Fire Station. Of course the fire poles and trucks are gone, but the history of this property adds to it's charm. The property was moved and remodeled and a new addition was built to transform the 3,200 square foot home into the perfect lodging destination for your Big Sky vacation.

The first floor great room has a cathedral ceiling with a floor to ceiling stone fireplace. The room surrounds you with windows and mountain views. Don't be surprised if you wake up to a moose at your door in the morning. There are plenty of moose sightings. A large kitchen with a breakfast bar, dining room, a laundry, three bedrooms with queen beds and two full baths complete the the first floor. Climb the log steps to the loft where you will find a very large bedroom with four single beds, two single beds under one of the dormer windows, a full bath and several areas for lounging around, playing board games or watching Direct TV. The downstairs includes two more bedrooms, both with bunk beds and another full bath. The covered patio off the great room includes a fabulous hot tub for working out the muscle pain of skiing or sore shoulders from a long day of fly fishing.

The property is conveniently located within minutes of Big Sky Ski Resort which now includes Moonlight Basin. Nearby are the private Spanish Peaks Club and Yellowstone Club. Fly fishing on pristine blue ribbon rivers like the Gallatin and Madison are nearby. Farther away (2+ hours) are the Henry's Fork, Beaverhead, Big Hole and the Yellowstone. Shopping, restaurants and bars are located within the village across the street and are a short walk away. There are hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain bike trails in the area. The west gate to Yellowstone National Park is less than an hour away and of course the City of Bozeman is within an hour drive as well.

We would love to have you stay at The Firehouse. Make your reservation today.

About The Owner

My family and I love to ski at Big Sky. I have skied all over, cutting my teeth on Mammoth when it only had 9 chairs (and chair #2 would sometime be a 90 minute wait,) to Vail, Aspen, Tahoe, Targhee, Jackson, Alta, Park City and Snowmass. There is nothing that combines the terrain and lack of crowds that Big Sky has to offer. It was always a dream to purchase a ski house somewhere. I live in Missoula, a 3.5 hour drive away and fell in love with this mountain. I also love the summer fun here in Big Sky from whitewater rafting, fly fishing, mountain biking and golf.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Yellowstone Country

I originally wanted a ski in ski out, but with six kids, (meaning 12 kids when accounting for friends) came everytime we went, we needed something larger. There just isn't that much on the mountain in this price range where you can get up to 15-18 people sleeping. It is a short walk away from the store where kids can get ice cream or something that dad forgot. The shuttle picks up and drops off there, also. There are numerous restaurants and bars across the street. Nice breakfast bakery as well. DVD rental, thai and sushi, too. There is a cinema within walking distance, too.

What makes this house unique

We are very close to the Big Sky Town Centre. A collection of shops and restaurants about 200 yards away across the street. A free shuttle also takes skiers up the hill to the Mountain Village. Right across the street from the 16th hole on the golf course means nice place for early jogging and its a cross country ski area in the winter. The skiing at Big Sky is impressive. It has the steeps of Jackson, Snowbird and Mammoth. The groomers and plenty of blue like Park City or Deer Valley, The largeness @5700 acres makes it the largest American ski resort. Big Sky has the second most verticle in America. At 4366, it comes in second only to Snowmass at 4406

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home! Hot tub was awesome after a long day of skiing. Conveniently located 10 minutes from the Big Sky base and 15 minutes from the Madison base. We would definitely stay here again!

Great home for groups, close to mountain, very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful trip! We had 16 people stay here and there was plenty of space to accomodate everyone. The hot tub and wood fireplace were awesome to enjoy after a long day on the slopes. Big Sky is an awesome resort with some serious terrain! House was convienently located to the town center, walkable to shuttle to take you up the mountain for skiing and apres ski activities (just so happened the big sky big grass festival was happening the weekend we stayed, great music/concerts). Overall a great trip, such a memorable experience!

Fall 2016 Retreat was a resounding success at the Big Sky Firehouse!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great "home base" from which to have our fall retreat. We had day trips to Yellowstone and the Museum of the Rockies, in Bozeman. There are many trails and hiking opportunities right out the door and Big Sky is a wonderful place to visit any time of year. The hot tub and a crackling fire were nice in the evenings after a big day out exploring nature. The home, itself, is lovely and well suited for a wide variety of ages and physical requirements (easy to access bedrooms/bathrooms on every level) and we had pinochle games going every night in the upstairs lounging area! We are all big readers and there are plenty of "flop" spots for cozy reading and/or quiet conversation. The living room was well appointed and comfy for our group bible discussions. As a group we rotate cooking and the kitchen was not only laid out well--open and conducive to work and conversation--but it was well furnished for the variety of dishes we made. That is actually a rare thing to find in a rental, usually there are no decent knives or cooking utensils, so take note if you like to cook. One can tell that the Sellman family actually uses this home and the kitchen tools are there to prove it. Speaking of the owners, Rich was very easy to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable time and a seamless transition in and out of the house. We do this retreat every year and have for over 30 years. We have had the blessing of staying in rental homes/facilities all over the world and without a doubt the Big Sky Firehouse is in our top ten as far as spacious, clean, comfortable accommodations and overall group compatibility and enjoyment. We would certainly like to stay here again as there are more trails to explore, sights to see and big lunker fish to catch. Thank you again for the opportunity to stay in this home, we hope to do business with you again in the future! Have a great year :-)

p.s. Thank you for the restaurant recommendations! On the nights no one felt like cooking it was sure nice to get out and enjoy the variety of cuisine available even though it wasn't "peak" Big Sky season. And, this will sound funny, but the Big Sky ACE hardware was pretty cool...the Henckel display alone!!

Owner's Response: Glatz group... Happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the glowing review. I'd like to say what a delight for an owner to have a group communicate with me before, during and after the stay for a truly memorable trip. Everything from early check-in, to any question, to a left behind article, this group communicated and enhanced both of our experiences. Please feel free to call us anytime. Rich

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. Our guests had initial issue with the hot tub but a phone call away we were able to fix it. Management on call were there to make sure everything else went well. Glad your group enjoyed the Fall in Big Sky
