About Vivian

We are a California beach family with roots in Wyoming and Texas.

Vivian purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Vivian chose Big Sky

Our family vacationed in this cabin for over a week and fell in love with just about everything Montana offers. We frequent the Colorado, Utah, and California slopes, but nothing compares to Big Sky's powder. Summer vacations in Hawaii and the Carribean now pale in comparison to the peacefulness of fly fishing on the Gallatin and Madison Rivers.

What makes this cabin unique

Riverfront cabin with blue ribbon trout fishing steps outside the backdoor. The minute you walk into the cabin, the river murmur will beckon you.

Majestic views and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place, we had eight adults and an infant and we were extremely comfortable. The house is in a beautiful location in Big Sky and it's a beautiful drive to Yellowstone or Bozeman. I can't say enough, we definitely want to go back.

Awesome family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home the week before our wedding in Big Sky. During this amazing week, three generations of our family lived, played, hot tubbed, and bonded around the living room fireplace in a way we haven't done in years. The games upstairs were very popular with the kids, the TV room downstairs was a nice bonus, and the main living area comfortably hosted our family meals. Other things that blew everyone away were the spectacular views of the mountain ranges, the wildlife wandering around, and the perfect location. By far the favorite place in the house was the hot tub. Every morning and evening we all raced out to the deck to jump in the tub, listen to the river running by and make memories that will last a lifetime. The small details and special amenities in this home are too many to count and the experience far exceeded our expectations. Not only was this an amazing place to stay, the property managers and owners were available to our requests 24hrs a day and enjoyable to work with. Thank you!

Outstanding cabin! Fantastic view!!

  • 5 of 5

This amazing, beautiful cabin includes everything you need for a comfortable stay. We loved the beauty and the sound of the Gallatin River that runs along the back of the property. We appreciated the access to white water rafting and ziplining nearby and the short, scenic drive to Yellowstone National Park. You can stop searching for a place to stay... This is it!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed this August 2017 and had a great time, great to stay on the river, peaceful. The cabin is very nice although the kitchen is very small for a large group like ours of 12 same with the bathrooms small, but overall a very nice place.
