About the Property
3 Bdrm, 3 And 1/2 Baths, Den, Two Decks, Patio, Hot Tub, Exquisite Finishes!
Residence Physical Description:
This is a lovely almost 3,000 Square Foot, three level Condo with three and one half bathrooms, one master suite on the ground-level, a second master suite on the third-floor along with a large guest bedroom/bunk room. There is also a modest den for quiet gathering/TV, napping, or reading; yet this den has a new Queen sofa sleeper with a door for added privacy. This den can act as a fourth bedroom if desired. The residence occupies a premium location, close to the clubhouse and swimming pool and located at the end of its building which means it has beautiful, sunlit windows around three sides of the residence. The second-floor gourmet kitchen is fully supplied with all utensils, a granite-topped kitchen island with seating for two and granite counter tops and back-splash throughout the kitchen. There is wood cove molding throughout the entire residence with many wood accents such as overhead beams in the dining room off the kitchen. There are also two small decks for sipping coffee and admiring the views on both the north and south sides of the second floor living level along with a private patio, hot tub, and gas grill on the ground level facing south toward the green space and golf course. All three bathrooms have enclosed, glass-door, stone showers with granite vanity tops and the third floor Master bathroom also has a large soaking tub and dual sinks with a multi-head shower. The first two floors are laid with hand-cut quarter-sawn real wood flooring with carpeting throughout the third-level. There is an elegant, eight seat dining room off the kitchen with windows on two sides, and located close-by there is a windowed, granite-topped office space that can serve as additional dining space for children. The main living room is windowed on three sides with spectacular sunny southern exposure mountain and golf course views and a slate, real-wood fireplace. Finally, the residence is equipped with a large, one-car heated garage so skiers and boarders begin each day with clean, dry equipment. A second vehicle may be parked outside, directly behind the garage door.
Location and Amenities:
This is a South facing residence with all day sun which looks out across a large green space, driving range, and golf course with views across the green space to the mountains south of Town Center. Almost unheard of in Big Sky, you will have summer access to a private association swimming pool & hot tub with year-round access to an association clubhouse, pool table, and exercise room. There is a lovely tributary of the Gallatin River running directly in front of the residence which provides a peaceful babbling brook sound effect when running freely in three seasons. The World-famous Lone Mountain Ranch Nordic Ski Center maintains an extensive cross-country trail network which literally encircles the residence and flows both out into the green-space and golf course as well as up-mountain into two different trails which lead back toward the Ranch; one a moderate difficulty, 15 minute route and a second, more strenuous 25 minute course. A trail pass is required in the winter and in the summer months these trail systems become multi-use, hiking, jogging, and biking recreational avenues. The residence is a 40 minute drive to West Yellowstone and its entrance to Yellowstone National Park. A two-minute drive east on Little Coyote road takes you to a lovely fishing pond and public recreation facility providing: 8 tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields, 18 hole mountainside Frisbee golf course, climbing wall, and a world class, concrete, feature-rich skateboard park complex, picnic shelters and charcoal grills. In the winter ski season, Lone Mountain Ranch Lodge and Nordic Ski Center is a three minute drive west, the drop off at the Big Sky base lodge is 6 minutes up the mountain, and the drop off at Moonlight Basin is 10 minutes up the mountain trail. One cautionary note for a winter stay in this residence: the mountain shuttle bus to the lifts is a whistle-stop on Little Coyote Road, three times a day (8am,11am, & 4pm) and it requires a transfer in Town Center and for some guests, this limited service might be an inconvenience. The concerts, skating, rodeos, farmers markets, movies, galleries, restaurants, bars and many activities of Town Center are a 10-minute walk in summer as the crow flies, or an easy 15-20 minute walk on the road through the golf community, and in all seasons, a three minute auto ride. Basically, the area and the location of this residence puts your family in an optimal Alpine retreat and sets the stage for making exquisite family memories!

This is a spectacular residence for children of all ages. We have laid the bedrooms out so that the logical concept is to have children sleeping on the third floor in the Den and/or Bunk-room and to keep adults sleeping in the entry-level Master Suite because this entry-level Master has doors to the outside, to the garage, and directly to the hot tub and patio. Do as you see fit based on the ages of your children....moreless

- Pets Not Allowed:
Sadly, this residence is NOT wheelchair accessible and in the strictest sense neither are our other residences in Firelight Meadows. That said, our Firelight Meadows layout is MUCH more friendly to a wheelchair as there is only one 6 inch step to overcome to gain entrance to the residences and once inside there is a main living space bedroom and bathroom so please feel to take a look at the following residences: VRBO Numbers: 240962, 608472, and 528804...moreless
Bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, Beds for 8
- There are three bedrooms and a den in this residence. One of the bedrooms is located on the entry-level of the three story condo. This bedroom has been made into a second Master bedroom suite with a Queen bed, private access to the patio and hot tub through its lovely French-style glass doors, a sitting area, and a private bathroom. We feel that this main-level bedroom is more appropriate for adults. The other two bedrooms and den are located on the third floor of the residence. We have placed a pull-out couch in the den. As with our other VRBO residences, the guest bedroom is a bunk room with a queen bed and a single over twin bunk bed. The main Master suite is also located on the third floor with a King bed, sitting area, dual head shower, large soaking tub, and dual sinks....moreless
Bathrooms: 3 Bathrooms, 1 Half Bathroom
- All three bathrooms in the residence have granite vanity tops, natural tile floors and natural stone tiled, full glass showers with seats. The Master Shower is dual headed. The Master bath also contains a large soaking tub. These are truly lovely bathrooms. The main knock on the residence as it is currently configured would be that there is no guest bathroom on the second-level main living space. This will change at the latest by Mid-September 2015 with the conversion of the second-level laundry room to a second-level stacked high-capacity washer/dryer and lovely but small guest half bath so that folks do not have to trek to their bedrooms from the second-level to use a bathroom....moreless
- Do not miss having at least one lunch at the upscale ski-in restaurant/bar located on the mountain...a bit expensive but oh so worth it! Our meadow place is upscale, spacious, a nice place to hang...not ornate but comfortable and comforting. When I ride a lift and talk with folks who live on the mountain in ski-in/ski-out residences I ask them where they eat out for dinner and recreate and they never say anyplace on the mountain; they always drive to the meadow to recreate in bars or restaurants and after they have had a few drinks they must wind back home up a rather dicey mountain road. I think ski-in-ski-out is the ultimate in convenience for skiing but almost nothing else is convenient to ski-in/ski-out locations plus the mountain village is colder in the summer and 2,000 feet higher in altitude than the meadow. Come live in the meadow where the non-downhill skiing recreation lives, where you can walk to and from entertainments of all types! We are biased I must admit!...moreless

Fees and Rental Conditions:
- Property Damage Protection $59
- Residence Cleaning $265
- Hot Tub Clean and Fill $60
- Tax Rate 10%
The VRBO damage deposit insurance of $59 is required so that we do NOT have to collect a refundable, cash damage deposit and this is a wonderful benefit for all stakeholders.
We would consider splitting the rent into two payments; but our standard operating procedure is to collect 100% in advance. Cleaning fees are moving upward in Big Sky; great dependable labor is difficult to find and difficult to manage. Our places are spotless. Thank you.

Enjoy the Big Sky Zip Line on the mountain! Big Sky now offers a brand new 3 screen Movie Theater located in the Meadow. No more trips to Bozeman just to see a movie! You can eat in the theater and enjoy your favorite child OR adult beverage while watching the movie. In the summer ride the Tram to the TOP of Lone Mountain and see for hundreds of miles around. Remember if you are skiing and you do not posses the skill to ski from the peak, you can still ride the Tram up to the Peak and then ride the Tram back down again. This is a MUST DO. You can enjoy a gourmet meal in a newly opened log structure restaurant up on the mountain (I understand this will be open summer and winter as accessed by a chairlift from the base of Big Sky). There is simply soo very much to do right in Big Sky it is difficult to describe it all. Then to all of this, you add all that Yellowstone Park contributes to your family experience!
Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: Michele and I live in Minnesota, we have three children, and we have vacationed in Big Sky for more than 15 years. Big Sky is like a great marriage: you will fall in lust with it at first sight, it will grow on you, you will have many adventures, occasional hardships like getting lost while hiking or getting a federal speeding ticket in Yellowstone Park, or hitting an elk with your vehicle, you will create memories and while Michele and I have LOVED going to Big Sky, we have always LOVED going home....until a fall trip with the kids in September, 2013. It is inexplicable...but we absolutely did NOT want to come home for the very first time ever. Our hearts are hooked by Montana. God's creation is truly magnificent!
Why the Owner Chose Big Sky, MT, USA:
Our original coach home chalet, VRBO# 240962 was a 'test' purchase to see if our family could really fall in love with the area enough to come back to over and over again: It passed the test! We have recently decided to build a greater presence in Big Sky by purchasing two more lovely residences in the Meadow: VRBO #608472 and VRBO #582804. Why? Because a great deal of year-round recreational activity is developing right in the Meadow as it morphs into Downtown Big Sky AND the combination of the three ski resorts into one resort making Big Sky “The Biggest Skiing in America” will attract more enthusiasts to Big Sky to see how lovely it is. These three residences should be great Legacy investments for our children and their families should we be fortunate enough to not have to sell them in our later years. Michele and I have been in the advisory business for decades and common ownership of real estate by ones children is a recipe for discord while individual residences will be a blessing. And now with this final residence, Mom and Dad will also have some separate space as our adult children begin having families of their own and it is no accident that this new Spanish Peaks Condo has a swimming pool so that even when grandchildren are in Big Sky, our grandchildren will want to visit Grandma and Grandpa! Our prayer is that our four residences can become a blessing to large families with Children and Grandchildren and that they will be rented for family reunions and large gatherings of friends, for wedding parties, and other family-focused events. Hey…our home state of Minnesota is beautiful but Montana is awe inspiring....renewing. Normally, it takes an ocean to renew and revive us but we have discovered that if you can get into the back-country by hiking, fishing in remote locations along the Gallatin, riding a horse or mountain biking into the Porcupine wilderness, you will be revived beyond words. As our family does, we hope you come back over and over again.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The main residence description gives you great insight to the general benefits of this residence. This section asks for Unique Benefits: 1) If you look at all four of our VRBO listed properties in the meadow, three at Firelight and this one on the meadow and golf course, you have available the opportunity to sleep about 32 people comfortably in beds because all four of the three bedroom residences also have pull-out couches and bunk beds in lofts or dens. Family reunions, weddings, large nuclear families etc…etc…..Think of the progressive dinners you could enjoy! 2) The residence is smack dab in the middle of the largest network of cross country ski trails in the nation. The trail network is maintained by the fabled Lone Mountain Ranch. 3) A lovely visual and audible stream runs in front of the residence and gives delight in three seasons when sitting quietly on the patio or the deck above the patio or in the living room with the windows open. 4) The south-facing living room view means sun all day with a beautiful view out over green meadow space and a golf course then into the mountains south of Town Center. 5) Association Clubhouse (for quiet and orderly gatherings). 6) Association Gym. 7) Association Swimming Pool and Hot Tub in the summer months. 8) Less than one mile to a massive public park with a pond, stream, tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer, baseball, awesome skateboard park, bathrooms, picnic tables, charcoal grills, climbing wall etc…. 9) 6 minute drive to Big Sky lifts, 10 minutes to Moonlight Basin lifts, 3 minutes to Lone Mountain Ranch cross-country ski lodge and HQ, 10) Two car heated garage. 11) Year-round private hot tub on the patio looking out on the meadow green space. 12) Brief walk to the meadow Golf clubhouse and driving range. 13) What are awesome cross-country ski trails in winter are magnificent bike trails in the summer. 14) There is a second deck just off the dining room on the North side of the residence.
