"Wow! What a great "home base" from which to have our fall retreat. We had day trips to Yellowstone and the Museum of the Rockies, in Bozeman. There are many trails and hiking opportunities right out the door and Big Sky is a wonderful place to visit any time of year. The hot tub and a crackling fire were nice in the evenings after a big day out exploring nature. The home, itself, is lovely and well suited for a wide variety of ages and physical requirements (easy to access bedrooms/bathrooms on every level) and we had pinochle games going every night in the upstairs lounging area! We are all big readers and there are plenty of "flop" spots for cozy reading and/or quiet conversation. The living room was well appointed and comfy for our group bible discussions. As a group we rotate cooking and the kitchen was not only laid out well--open and conducive to work and conversation--but it was well furnished for the variety of dishes we made. That is actually a rare thing to find in a rental, usually there are no decent knives or cooking utensils, so take note if you like to cook. One can tell that the Sellman family actually uses this home and the kitchen tools are there to prove it. Speaking of the owners, Rich was very easy to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable time and a seamless transition in and out of the house. We do this retreat every year and have for over 30 years. We have had the blessing of staying in rental homes/facilities all over the world and without a doubt the Big Sky Firehouse is in our top ten as far as spacious, clean, comfortable accommodations and overall group compatibility and enjoyment. We would certainly like to stay here again as there are more trails to explore, sights to see and big lunker fish to catch. Thank you again for the opportunity to stay in this home, we hope to do business with you again in the future! Have a great year :-)
p.s. Thank you for the restaurant recommendations! On the nights no one felt like cooking it was sure nice to get out and enjoy the variety of cuisine available even though it wasn't "peak" Big Sky season. And, this will sound funny, but the Big Sky ACE hardware was pretty cool...the Henckel display alone!!"
