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 Big Sky Meadow Village

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

The house was wonderful, and had EVERYTHING we needed. Great location 10 minutes from the base of Big Sky Resort, and right across the street from shopping & restaurants. 10/10 would stay here again.

I just did this. Other members of our group were very pleased with the house. This is no reflection of the House, but the busing system needs improvement. Color code busing indicating where they are going. Every frustrating and time consuming.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed the house. Obviously, we have no control over the transportation system, but is is conveniently located about two blocks from our home. Free trips up to the mountain and back down. Rich and Michelle

Spacious Big Sky Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Firehouse! Great location right near the Big Sky Center with grocery store, shops and restaurants and only a 10 minute drive up to the mountain. The house had loads of room with the 6 bedrooms plus the spacious and private loft sleeping area. Well stocked kitchen with everything we needed. Hot tub was great and well needed after a long day on the slopes! The house was everything we hoped for. Thanks!
