Clean and pretty comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 had a nice time skiing. This condo is pretty nice, but could use some updating. Master shower is just a tub shower. We were expecting a more luxurious condo, but this was overall a comfortable and easily accessed unit. The three levels were always different temps and with only 1 thermostat, were hard to regulate. Bottom level was always cold and upper was hot. Only other issue we had was the ski in/ski out claim. It is not. Gotta walk about 75 yards to ski down to lift. That part was easy. However, to get back, you have to stop about 400 feet away and walk to the condo. That is not what I consider ski in/ski out.

Overall, this is a nice condo. However, we prefer to be able to stop and start easier during our days on the mountain. We won't be staying in this condo again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for renting from us, We are sorry you didn’t like the tub shower in the master. Most guests enjoy being able to take a bath or shower in the master. All of the furnishings, bedding, gas grill, hot tub, paint, and kitchen utensils, plates, etc. are less than 2 years old, so we are not sure what you are referring to in terms of updating or not luxurious. After you checked out, we found the baseboard heaters ON in the upstairs bedroom, which is why you may have been hot up there. It is very odd to have been cold in the lower level because that is normally the warmest part of this Saddle Ridge. Perhaps the baseboard heat kept the furnace from coming on. We wish you would have contacted us during your stay so that we could have had an opportunity to help with this. The last 2 weeks of warm weather (very unseasonable) have caused most homes in Big Sky to require some walking when it comes to skiing in/out, This is a front row, ski-in/ski-out Saddle Ridge, which is absolutely ski-in/out 90% of the season. Thank you again for renting from us. All the best, Acra and Chris

Beautiful Place With a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip to Big Sky. Acra and Chris were excellent hosts, and we are glad we chose this place. Everything was exactly as described, and the place was in great condition. The place was very clean and it was so helpful that they provided linens, towels, and other essentials. Acra and Chris were very easy to communicate with, and they were always eager to offer advice and answer questions. The condo's location made it easy for everyone to enjoy their trip the way they wanted to. It was a true ski in/ski out with easy access to the mountain. The view from the balcony was phenomenal - waking up the Big Sky sunrise over the mountain never got old. There was plenty of room for storage and more than enough room to hangout with the family after a great day of skiing. Having the hot tub was also another great thing to come home to after carving through powder all day. If we were to do another trip to Big Sky, we would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place to stay at Big Sky!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a spring break skiing trip. We had an amazing time skiing, but what made our trip more enjoyable was the condo we rented! The place was spacious and we'll equipped. The view was so beautiful. We could ski out of the back door with a short climb down hill. It was convenient to town and to the ski village or Moonlight Lodge. We loved our stay here and will definitely be booking again!
