Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Ski In and Ski Out Access

Enchanting views of Lone Peak, the Middle Fork Creek, and the surrounding mountain expanse make Big Dog Lodge the perfect backdrop any time of year for your Big Sky adventures. Located only a short stroll from the Mountain Village and base area, yet beautifully secluded, the ski-in/ski-out property overlooks a pristine pine forest and whispering mountain stream, providing plenty of opportunity for wildlife watching. This 4,000 sq. foot Montana log home is well-suited for two families, larger groups, or the annual guys/gals getaway, offering an abundance of elegant space to gather, or spread out, in style. With a toasty fireplace and picturesque deck on each of its 3 levels, this cozy, storybook home is sure to satisfy and amaze. Don't forget the marshmallows! Equipped with an outdoor fire pit, you can live in luxury and still experience a genuine creekside campfire under the stars. Splendidly isolated yet close enough to all the action, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, this incredible alpine retreat makes an inspired starting point for wherever your day takes you!

Ski Rating 3.5: Ski in and out to Big Sky Resort. Best for skiers. Possible for children and snowboarders, but ski-in can be more difficult for these groups. It may be easier to pick up children or snowboarders in skier drop off area at the end of the day.

Ski Out:

Ski down driveway and take a left. Follow the road to the end to the Thunderwolf Lift Access.

Ski In:

Ski In - Intermediate and Expert take Silverknife to Bear Back Poma. Ski past the bottom of the Poma on the ski trail to Low Dog Road. From here ski the road back to the house. We recommend beginners ski to the Summit Hotel and walk out the front of the hotel and ski the road the whole way back down to Low Dog Road. Silverknife may be too step for beginners. Note: During periods of melting the road could be exposed and cause the property to lose ski access since the road is necessary for parts of the process.

Home is only ski accessible when road is snow covered.

Big Dog Lodge is part of our Platinum Collection.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group and the house was just perfect. Good sized rooms and space enough for everyone. The location was great and the views of Lone Peak were fantastic from the living room. It is a short walk to the lift and you are right at the main resort. The teenagers in our group loved the pool table and downstairs game room. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a great house with a great location.
