Awesome mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 loved staying here for our winter ski vacation! The house is very spacious and we never felt cramped. The upstairs and downstairs living areas provided great spaces for separate activities, the large kitchen and dining room were perfect for group meals, and we had plenty of sleeping space. Joel was very communicative before and during our stay, making sure everything was prepared for us and providing us all the details we needed. The walk from the house to the ski hill felt a little long the first time we did it (especially when carrying our ski equipment) but after the first time it became familiar and was much easier. And the tradeoff is that the price is lower than the ski in/ski out places right on the hill. Overall we were extremely pleased. Great house, great location, great owner! You will love this mountain getaway!

White Otter Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 11 night stay at White Otter Cottage in January 2018. Our two families from NZ were really impressed with this wonderful property! It seemlessly accommodated our group of 3 adults and 5 kids with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have fun. The access to and from the White Otter chair was easy and the kids loved cutting a track through the snow in the back garden to create a path for us to walk into town. This walk only took about 15 minutes (even shorter if you catch the ski shuttle into the village from the top carpark). Joel was an absolute pleasure to work with every step of the way through the booking process, right through to the end of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and he was incredibly helpful whenever we needed it. For us, it was the little things that really stood out with this owner - a really well stocked kitchen (our welcome gift was a lovely touch), toe and hand warmers for our use, bathroom supplies in case we'd left anything behind, games/books/dvds galore, trail maps, so many extras which made our holiday easy and enjoyable. The boot and glove warmer in the drying room was particularly awesome!! It was so good to wake up to the beautiful view of Lone Peak every morning - it's spectacular from White Otter cottage. We had wonderful snow conditions and skiied every day. Blessed!! Thanks Joel and Debbie for sharing your wonderful house with us.

Top Notch Home and Owner

  • 5 of 5

I spent last week in Joel's home with 8 other friends for our annual ski trip. Joel was very accommodating for us and his home was fantastic. He provided extra amenities you don't normally get when you rent someone's home. He was also very helpful showing our group how to get to his home from the slopes and also showing us how things worked in the home.

As for the size of the home, we fit 9 adults very comfortably in the home. There was plenty of space for entertaining and also enough space to get away from the group for some quiet time. It was also very nice to only have a short walk/ski to the lift. If you had some fresh snow you could put your skis on at the top of the drive way and push down to the lift in only a minute or so.

I highly recommend renting his home for your stay in the Big Sky area.

Claremore, OK

Beautiful house, perfect for our reunion with my kids and grandkids.

  • 5 of 5

We had plenty of room for everyone to have their space when needed and room for everyone to gather together for meals. We had all our meals at the house, except for sack lunches while we were out sight seeing. The rear deck offered a great view of the mountain. And was a perfect location to grill out one evening. The hot tub looked inviting, but we didn't have time to enjoy it.

Joel was very attentive to our needs and contacting me several times to ensure that I had all of the information that I needed. Answered all of my questions as to where to do the activities that my group wanted to pursue. Could not have asked for an easier person to work with.

House was well furnished - even a bed and high chair for my youngest grandson. And toys for the other kids - legos were a big hit, as you would expect. Well stocked kitchen. Lots of places for everyone to sit our just lounge around. Very comfortable and a great view. Had several deer visit the back yard every evening.

Highly recommend. Will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Montana.

Beautiful property, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome vacation rental for a multi-family ski trip! We had 3 families and the space was perfect for us. Joel's hospitality was awesome and he was available if questions needed to be answered. The view is spectacular and the location was easy to ski out or drive to the base and park. Ski in was more challenging, but only because it's April and the end of the season. The house is stocked with all essentials and Joel was attentive to ensure we were comfortable. We ski Big Sky every year, and we will definitely be back to stay on this property!! Highly recommend this property!

About Joel Butz 920-737-9005 or Debbie Butz 920-217-1304

My wife and I purchased the White Otter Mountain House July, 2014. We are a skiing family at heart and moved to Bozeman Montans from Green Bay Wisconsin over 4 years ago. Debbie and I have 4 grown children and 6 grandchildren. It has been a great decision being that we love the mountains in the summer as much as in the winters. We are a skiing family and always will be.

Joel Butz 920-737-9005 or Debbie Butz 920-217-1304 purchased this house in 2014

Why Joel Butz 920-737-9005 or Debbie Butz 920-217-1304 chose Big Sky Mountain Village

We purchased 15 White Otter Rd because it is in an incredible location for summer activities of fly fishing, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, golfing and more.

But why we specifically wanted 15 White Otter Rd to be our vacation home is because of its incredible location to Big Sky Resort with it world class skiing for all levels of skiers.

What makes this house unique

My wife and I will be available for assistance to make your Big Sky Mountain experience one to remember. Through our travels as we rented VRBO homes, what we thought was a nice touch is that the kitchens were furnished with the essentials like spices, jellies, tea, paper toweling, napkins, coffee filters, etc and guests were welcome to use whatever was available. We hope our guests will feel comfortable 'living' in our home, making it their own for the short time they are here. For coffee drinkers, we have a press pot, a drip coffee maker (with filters provided), and a Keurig coffee maker, (so buy your favorite k-pods)
