Overview

About the property

1 MBR Suite, 1 Bunkroom -2 Full/2 Twin, 2 fold-out , 2 full bathrooms.Sleeps 6

We fell in love when we saw the view of Big Sky Resort's spectacular Lone Peak, which is enjoyed from the Master Bedroom Suite, Living Room and Outdoor Deck. Combine that with the in-unit hot tub room, fireplace, plenty of space, lodgepole pine beam work and one of the best Mountains in the Rockies convinced us that we want to hang our hat here.

Slope side often requires a lot of walking, is noisy, and comes at a premium price. We're only a half mile away on the free shuttle. Take our elevator down to the heated indoor garage, and a few steps out the door you can board the free shuttle that takes you right to the Big Sky Resort entrance.

The large 'L' shaped Living Room, Dining Room, TV/Den area gives everyone space to spread out with couches, recliners and good reading lights. Or for some private time escape to the peaceful sun room for a nap, or use the desk to set-up your lap-top.

Full renovated 2016 kitchen with new appliances, laundry, internet, HD Smart TV/Blue Ray DVD/CD/VCR surround system, firewood, and a boot & glove dryer-handles 6 pair of each at once.

About Brett

I'm from a northeast skiing family. My parents met through a ski club my Dad was president of, and started me on skis at the age of 3 at Whiteface, a NY Adirondack mountain that hosted the 1980 Olympic Alpine events. This great mountain, with its 3,200 vertical drop, is where I learned to ski every type of condition, in all forms of extreme weather.

After college I got into exploring new ski areas, and started tallying all the ones I had been to. According to my Excel list I've been to 124 ski areas so far.

I have been to most major resorts throughout North America, and have started ticking off some of the more exotic ones on my bucket list in South America, New Zealand and Europe. I still enjoy the small family run operations too. For me, its just about being outside gliding down a mountain. I don't need fancy resort infrastructure and perfect groomers to have fun. That is the beauty of starting the sport in the era I did.

With all that said, my wife and I were looking for a place out West that we could take our kids to, and spend some retirement time at. I had been to all the big name mountains prior to my first visit to Big Sky which we instantly fell in love with. The mountain had every type of terrain: from the double black diamonds I enjoy now, to the type of terrain I will enjoy in my senior years. The lifts were old salvaged lifts from other ski areas. That was okay. We saw the potential and saw that Boyne was pumping money into the resort, so we bought our place in 1991, and haven't looked back since. With most new lifts replaced by high speed detachables, new lodges, and the tram to the top, this area rocks.

Throughout the years we've been slowly fixing our Montana home up, and in 2016 we renovated the kitchen and entryway completing our wish list. We have really enjoyed seeing our renters positive comments about their stay, and we will continue this labor of love to make it great for us and them.

Brett purchased this condo in 1991

Load-up and ride the elevator up two levels and it will open right across from our condo-easy. In-unit, dedicated hot tub room for your privacy is a plus. Tub is cleaned and filled with fresh water at check-in. Big Sky access is a half mile away on the free shuttle that picks-up right outside the Skycrest garage door and drops you off at the entrance. No long walks, no parking hassles. We always utilize the ski/board overnight check service during our vacation stay which is right at the base of the chairlifts. Wet ski boots and gloves...we have a dryer that can handle 6 pairs of both at once. Free wireless internet, TV/DVD/CD/VCR

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Brett & Bonnie's Big Sky condo is amazing! We stayed here over Thanksgiving 2017 & couldn't have picked a better place! It was immaculate & every detail was extremely well though out (loved the dimmers on all the lights!) plus the view of Lone Peak is fantastic. We spend a lot of time just gazing at that gorgeous peak watching the clouds and light change. The hot tub & wood burning fireplace were cozy treats after hiking in the snow. We also loved the layout! I spend a lot of time in the very well equipped kitchen cooking & loved that I could see the TV and be part of the goings on in that area. Also, like that the master was on one side and the 'kids' room on the other so everyone could have their space. And liked the L shape living room area so I could read in front of the fire while others watched a movie. The sunroom was also a great cozy spot for reading or just admiring that awesome mountain view again. We'd love to come back again someday! Thank you Brett & Bonnie for providing us with a special place to enjoy a family Thanksgiving this year. Janet Zahl

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Great place. Good views. Nice hot tub. Rats nest of wiring on the tv tho-couldn't get it running. Bring a 14 year old to set up the tv for you.

Owner's Response: Our building converted to DIRECT TV satelite after the cable company went bankrupt. Not a fan because of the slight delay at start-up and when channel surfing, but the HD picture is crystal clear. We started having an intermittent loss of signal that we thought was solved the week prior with a system reboot, but this renter arrived to no signal as Hurricane Irma was hitting Florida and most of the country was watching the news. They were patient with me as I tried to solve it over the phone between them and DIRECT TV, but it would take a house call days after they checked out to locate and replace a bad section of cable of theirs, not mine. As for the "rats nest" of cable behind our A/V surround system. I leave it neat and tidy, but often our guests pull it out and hook up their own devices and things get a little jumbled back there. Very sad to have my fisrst 4-star rating, but I understand it and the frustration they went through.

Very cool place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very cool and comfortable. You drive into the garage, take the elevator and go up to nice unit. The owner has included all the comforts of home. We enjoyed staying here and would recommend it. Some places have a sterile feeling but this place felt like home.

Great place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

The area is gorgeous. The condo met all our needs. If you plan to visit Yellowstone a lot like we did it's a bit far but the drive is awesome. The condo has a lot of room and great views.

Owner's Response: Yes, Yellowstone Park is a lovely 45 minute drive along the Gallatin river and through the mountains. The road is flat and wide following this river basin into West Yellowstone. Many come to Big Sky because they also want to explore the area and enjoy the many activities available including white water rafting, AND it is a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the park. Often the gateway towns to Yellowstone are booked solid. Plus you get our off season rates while places like the town of West Yellowstone charge top dollar. We give you a large space to set-up base camp nestled in the mountains with mountain & lake views.

Ideally located in the Big Sky Mountain Village on the free shuttle loop-a half mile from Big Sky Resort. Just far enough away to give us the most spectacular view of Big Sky and Lake Levinsky from this condo's elevated perch. We're ten minutes from the golf course, and white water rafting & fishing on the Blue Ribbon Gallatin River. Bozeman/Yellowstone Airport are an 1:10h away. Yellowstone Park's West Yellowstone entrance is 50 minutes away. We are just around the corner from the popular Beehive Basin hiking trail. There are many excellent restaurant and bar choices in the Big Sky Mountain Village as well as the Meadow Village and Canyon areas where vehicles are recommended. Renters love how easy it is to come and go from the heated indoor parking garage accessed a few steps away from the elevator; directly across from our front door.
