About Chris

This is our second home and we are more than happy to share it with you and your family and friends.

We sincerely look forward to accommodating everyone.

Best Wishes,

Chris and Family

Chris purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris chose Big Sky

Location, views, skiing, golfing, pristine mountains and rivers. Exceptional Really!

About Our Home and Big Sky Ski and Golf Resort:

You may want to rent a vehicle in Bozeman at the airport where you land. (There are also car services and taxis that will take you to Big Sky but ideally a vehicle is the most convenient and will allow you the freedom to explore the area.)

The Moonlight Lodge which is in the center of our development right on the top of the mountain at the bottom of the ski runs.

(In the winter there is also a skating rink set up at the lodge.)

The Moonlight Lodge hosts a very nice restaurant also which is well worth the treat after a long day of skiing.

Our home is set about four blocks from this lodge and there is a chairlift approximately 200 feet from our front door (Pony Express).

We are in the perfectly location set at the top of the mountain in the center of all the ski runs and the views from our home are exceptional.

The little town Big Sky is very quaint and is located at the bottom of the mountain. Here you will find a tiny main street with a couple of groceries stores, a theater and a 10 to 14 shops.

There is also the much larger town of Bozeman nearby where you can go antiquing, find a mall or stock up at Costco's (which we recommend you do on your way out from the airport) but everything you really need you will be able to find right in Big Sky so there really is no reason to venture out to far unless you want to visit the wonders of Yellowstone Park (30 minutes away) or head down the canyon just to take in the scenery or perhaps dine at a lovely restaurant along the river.

We would be more than happy to provide you with all of the highlights for the area and the places not to be missed during your stay as we truly enjoy our location and relish the opportunity of sharing it and all of its wonderful discoveries’ with others.

Your more then welcome at any time :)

What makes this house unique

Come experience it all for yourself.

Our home and Big Sky are exactly what you picture when you envision Montana and it is our hope that your expectations will be exceeded!

Big Ski is an ideal Ski Resort for families and couples.

It is incredibly scenic and stunning beautiful.

We have traveled to over 30 ski resorts worldwide however our experience in Big Sky still exceeds them all. It is simply the most pristine, provides the best skiing anywhere and represents the 'True Montana Experience' (wildlife and all).

The summers are spectacular here as well and Yellowstone Park makes a perfect day trip from our home.

We hope some of this may assist you in making the best decision possible for you and your family.

We also have homes in Maui Hawaii and a beautiful lake home in BC Canada as well just in case your travels take you to these areas in the future :)

Million Dollar View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while on a family road trip. We were a group of 5 adults and we all agree ----- the pictures don't do the house justice. It is much more spectacular and dramatic in person. This home has an elegant and impressive interior. My sister in law called it "the cabin/castle hybrid" and that really sums it up perfectly. There was no fighting over bedrooms. Each has it's own theme and could truly be called a master bedroom. The hot tub was clean and seems new. It was situated nicely and allowed for protection from the elements, yet it still had a great view. The house was surprisingly warm and cozy despite the high ceilings. You'll also find the home to be very quiet -- good for keeping the piece between night owls and early birds. All the beds were comfortable and the Jacuzzi bath tubs were wonderful. It's true there's only 1 television but there are plenty of other things to occupy your time. We saw several mule deer, a quartet of chipmunks and we had a couple of visits from inquisitive little foxes. There are a variety of hiking trails just steps from the house and many more within close proximity. There is no garage but ample room to park cars in the driveway and on a spot on the road. Thanks Chris for allowing us to spend time in your lovely home!!

Absolutely Breath Taking

  • 5 of 5

Every thing you need for an amazing multi-family vacation. So easy to get in and out. The views are spectacular. The owners are so nice and so easy to work with when availability permits. We got a ton of snow over our spring break and the driveway was plowed every morning. Just an overall amazing destination. Next trip to Big Sky we will attempt to book this same house.

Beautiful home in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Big Sky and enjoyed this beautiful home. Having 4 master suites for the adults, a wonderful kitchen and living area made for a very memorable trip. The owners were very accommodating for every request and we would love to return in the future.

The only thing to note is that 4WD is a requirement in the winter and even then, access to the home is challenging in winter conditions, specifically the driveway. We had a couple of issues even with 4WD vehicles that resulted in us having to park at the ski lift and walk 200 yards to the home due to ice on the driveway. This is not the fault of the owners and it would not change our decision to stay here but future guests should be aware so that they can plan accordingly.

The other issue is that this is not ski-in/out. Its a 200 yard walk to the chair lift and there isn't a trail that skis back to the home without walking through 6 feet of snow and trees. This is the only area that wasn't clear to us in advance. That being said, it is close enough to walk with the right conditions but not easy enough for families with small children. However, I do believe this was reflected in the pricing as ski in/ski out homes not as nice as this one were available for a higher price.

We absolutely loved our trip to Montana and all of us agreed that this was a beautiful home. The owners were extremely hospitable and accommodating and I would love to stay at one of their other properties in the future.

Thank you again to the Piche' family.

Spectacular Home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for large family or multi family gathering at big sky. Our group had 4 couples and 3 kids with plenty of room to spare. Huge bedrooms each wig impressive bath. Some reviewers have mentioned the lack of true ski in ski out. The ski in dumps you literally across the street from this Place. Skiing out for us was simply down the road to lift as we had plenty of snow. Fairly short walk down road if it’s not snow covered.

Huge kitchen. Plenty of all essentials for a large group. 2 dishwashers. Double oven. 2 laundry rooms. Perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank You All for leaving such a wonderful review here. Your kind words are always appreciated and we truly take them to heart. We feel our home is just what people picture when they picture Montana (both rustic and elegant). We also agree that the ski access to and from our home is excellent as well. We love that the Twin Tunnels Trail takes our freinds right back to the front door. The short walk (slide) down to the ski lift (about a football field away) is also great and like my father (who is in his eighties) says. “If you can’t make it to the lift from this place then skiing is really going to be a challenge.” (Now if we could just stop Pops from boogie boarding the big waves in Maui we would not have to worrie ;) Come on back and any time and please know that you and those you love are always more than welcome. Best Always, Your Newest Friends
