THE BIG SKY FIREHOUSE-SPACIOUS LIVING FOR UP TO 16 GUESTS

Big Sky House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 16

Welcome to the old Big Sky Firehouse. Located in The Meadows of Big Sky Montana, the character of this property is enhanced because a part of it was once the Big Sky firehouse. Of course the fire poles and trucks are gone, but the history of this property adds to it's charm. The property was moved and remodeled and a new addition was built to transform the 3,200 square foot home into the perfect lodging destination for your Big Sky vacation.

The first floor great room has a cathedral ceiling with a floor to ceiling stone fireplace. The room surrounds you with windows and mountain views. The views are nice and you may have a moose sighting. A large kitchen with a breakfast bar and large pantry, a laundry, three bedrooms with queen beds and two full baths complete the the first floor. The lower level has two rooms with bunk beds and a full bath. The second floor has a large loft area, full bathroom and bedroom with four twin beds and a futon which makes room for 16 in beds.

Skiing is great at two resorts, Big Sky and Moonlight Basin, within a 10 minute drive from the house. Summer is filled with miles of mountain biking trails or blue ribbon trout rivers. The Gallatin river is 3 miles away. The world famous Madison is 1 hour away. Other world famous fisheries such as the Big Hole, Yellowstone, Beaverhead, Henry's Fork and the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are 2-3 hours away.

The house was in a great location. Unfortunately it was dirty when we got there. The garage was full of trash, a bedspread had an unidentifiable substance on it (looked like poop), and the house was picked up but not clean. It is an expensive rental and should have at least been clean at that price. The owner said he would let his cleaning staff know when this was brought to his attention, however no discussion of a discount or apology was made.

Owner's Response: I have owned and rented this home for 6 years. The home and service has always received excellent reviews.

The garbage mentioned was left by the prior renters who did not do their part in check out. My on-site property manager had it taken care of within hours of this party's arrival.

As for the cleanliness, I employ a professional cleaning company that has been outstanding from day one of my ownership. I cant speak for the crew that did the clean prior to this party's arrival, but perhaps one of them had an off day. This is the first negative comment toward that service I have ever received, and I did bring it promptly to the attention of the owner of the company.

As for the unidentifiable substance on the bedspread, neither I nor the cleaners have any idea. I was sent a picture of it the day of their departure and it appeared to be a brown stain. It has been professionally dry-cleaned.

I have a no-pet policy but this party asked me in advance and said it was a small dog and I said yes.

In conclusion, this home has an exemplary history of satisfied renters, many who have been repeat vacationers, my on-site people are responsive and good at what they do and I am a reasonable and responsive owner who takes pride in my home. I just cannot control every variable that comes up.

I would hope future renters with questions look at the many positive reviews to help them decide if The Firehouse is right for them.

Great Rental !!

  • 5 of 5
The Firehouse was perfect! The location is great - close to shopping and dining and a quick drive to the slopes. Anything you could ever need and more was provided. The hot tub was great to soak in and there was plenty of room for 12 of us to sleep comfortably. Really - it felt like home.

Hoigaards Outdoor Women, HOW, had a wonderful week staying at this beautiful home. We were a group of 13, had no rental cars, and enjoyed a variety of activities and events while there. The location was convenient for accessing the shuttle for Big Sky and Moonlight Basin, walking to the town center for dinner, shopping and groceries, and getting picked up for special activities and airport rides. We did it all! Downhill skiing, XC skiing at Lone Mountain Ranch, sleigh ride dinner, Yellowstone snow coach tour, and lots of good local restaurants.
The house is warm and full of natural light with lots of room for everyone to be together as well as find some private space for reading or relaxing. It has everything you need for a wonder filled vacation. My family is already talking about when we might come out for some holiday skiing next year!

Wonderful house in an amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5
We just completed a fantastic stay at the Big Sky Firehouse. We had a group of 6 adults and 6 children between 8 and 12. The house was great, more than enough space and very nicely set up and furnished. The fireplace and hot tub were a big hit. Access to the best skiing certainly made the trip memorable but for our group the house was a huge part of our trip also and really helped make it one of our best vacations ever!!!
