Big Sky House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-24)

The quite friendly atmosphere of Big Sky Montana awaits you. This is the last pristine ski areas of the west remaining, almost 6,000 acres, largest Ski area in United States. There are never lines at either the ski hill or the grocery store. Small town atmosphere, with Village activities all the time, and Mountain activities year round.

The scenery and views are ones you have only seen in magazines or movies. This is the best-kept secret in America. It also has the Gallatin River, Yellowstone River and Madison Rivers, all year round trophy trout rivers with world-class fly-fishing. It is also near four golf courses. It has downhill skiing, cross country skiing and heli skiing, and sledding hills. It features horseback riding into the mountains all seasons. There are hot spring swimming pools open all 4 seasons. There are individual snowmobiles for rental or large snow cat excursions into Yellowstone Park that will show you geysers, winter animals and Yellowstone Park Lodge. There are also moonlight sled rides into the woods to large tents with cowboy dinners and entertainment cowboy style. They turn to wagon rides with dinner when the snow is gone. There is no end to the entertainment in the months without snow. There is hiking, mountain bike riding park excursions, white water rafting, high mountain lake fishing and river fishing, zip lines and children's activities and village activities including rodeos and hockey and concerts and art shows nearly every weekend year around.

Our home features five bedrooms, full-size kitchen, two laundry rooms, two family rooms, and 3 fireplaces, one outdoor. The home is made of 90% reclaimed lumber, which came from a 100-year-old dairy farm in Nampa Idaho.

The home features two large antler chandlers. Enjoy a cold night on the deck huddled up close to the fireplace. Radiant floor heating through out the house will sure keep you nice and toasty, no cold tile here. The home is halfway up the mountain road between the mountain village and the meadow village, four minutes either way to Big Sky and Moonlight Basin Ski Areas.

It is 45 miles from Yellowstone National Park and 40 miles from Bozeman, Montana. Start making memories in our rustic get-away with your family in our Big Sky retreat. This home is especially set up for large families. It has additional small kitchen in basement. Two Dishwashers, Two laundry rooms 2 fridges, internet TV, TVs in most rooms, Hot tub in backyard, and jetted tub and shower in master bedroom. It has sleds for children, an indoor grill, and a state of the art kitchen with under the counter ice maker.

The home does have wireless Internet and internet tv, but who has time for these when there are so many activities outside.

The rates and the calender are both up to date. Feel free to email me and ask any question you may have. Thanks

About Sidney Holladay

Our family has been coming to Big Sky for 14 years now. We started in a small condo, and as our family grew, we traded up and added properties, till we finally built our dream home. We have 4 married children and 9 grand children. This home fits us all. It has everything our large family requires. We are from Idaho, but now live in Georgia. We bought the remains from a 100 year old milk farm and reused the lumber that was salvaged from this farm. We now have Idaho and Montana and Georgia all in one. This home is warm and cozy with in-floor heat and the perfect location. It is in the most beautiful place on earth. It is remote enough to give us seclusion, yet around enough natural wonders to keep us exercised and entertained and challenged. Our family counts the days till we return to our 'Pontana.' as referred to by our grand children.

Sidney Holladay purchased this house in 2007

Why Sidney Holladay chose Big Sky

Big Sky is the perfect location, in the woods, but close to skiing, restaurants, grocery stores. fishing, Yellowstone, and naturally occuring moose, elk, deer, bears, and bighorn sheep, that always have the right of way and our wonder and respect. There is never a shortage of things to do, and never a moment when it is inappropriate to fall out and snooze till you wake up to graze through the pantry. Or, you may want to hop in the car and head to the ski hill for a couple of runs. Lazy days or energetic hikes are here for the taking. Bozeman is a 40 minute drive through the most beautiful montain peakes and along the Gallatin River that begs you to stop and toss in a line, 365 days every year. It is a quaint town that has everything you could ever need, except Wall Street, and Times Square. It now has direct flights from Atlanta and other major cities. The airport is being expanded, much to our dismay. We like parking across the street with $3.00 parking fees and leaving our keys at the delta counter. At last, our mecca is being discovered.

What makes this house unique

Our home has radiant floor heat, cozy fireplaces, comfy beds, 2 of everything including diswashers, washers, dryers, ovens, refrigerators, and ski areas. You can cross country ski out the front door and sled down the road, as there are only 2 houses on it. The ski hill is less than 10 minutes away. There are snowflakes on the floor that sparkle, and antler chandeliers to remind you of the wonders around you. You can enjoy the hot tub in the back yard and jump out of it into the snow banks. There is nothing like Montana and the comfort of our home. The biggest resort in the US , where kids ski for free is 4 miles away. You, too, may return every year for the rest of your life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. Our group had great excursions into Yellowstone. We especially like the south river trail along the Grand Canyon. All of us enjoyed white water rafting on the Gallatin River. Fishing was fun, but did not catch very many. Next time we are going to get a guide. We will be back.

Family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived Jan 11, 2014 to a little slice of heaven! The house and its amenities is one of the most beautiful and functional properties we have stayed at. Big Sky itself is a wonderful ski resort with NO LIFT LINES! Shhhhhhhhhhh! Incredibly convenient location in one of the most wildly scenic places on earth Yellowstone! We spent a day snowmobiling and had a total blast. We enjoy a family ski vacation each year and have traveled all over the US, this property is our new fav! The most luxurious authentic property we have ever stayed at. The "hot tub time machine" is miraculous after a day on the slopes. The owners were fabulous to work with, were responsive and super friendly. Can not recommend a place any higher. Mema says it was the best!

Just Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Our families travelled from Minnesota to a family celebration with the Bozeman relatives. We had Great Grandma all the way down to the 3 year old. The house fit us all so well. We had everything we needed and then some. The great grand kids loved the saddle stools to sit and have their meals. The location was perfect for all our needs. Some wanted access to go to Bozeman or Yellowstone and some wanted the feeling of being away and in the mountains. Your house provided it all. The house was clean and well maintained. We all took the Ousel Falls hike which was so much fun and only a couple of miles away. I already have recommend this house to family and friends. We are skiiers and would like to visit this winter to celebrate our youngest sons High School Graduation.
We can't wait to see it in the snow! Thank you again for making memories for us and sharing your home.

Had a great stay for a week with a group of friends from UK and Oregon. The house was fantastic - lots of space, very well kitted out (felt like there was at least two of everything!), great surroundings and well placed for a few minute drive up to Big Sky everyday. We got a great mix of snow and blue sky, we skied, did snowshoeing and visited Yellowstone which was spectacular in Winter. Owners were very helpful with my advance questions and everyone loved the stay. If we go back to Big Sky we will definitely want to come back to stay in this house, it was great!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments on your stay. We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves. It is the best family house ever, because it was built for our family which numbers 19. We tried to think of everything anyone might want. Hope to see you again.

Making Memories From Georgia Family

  • 5 of 5
We took all our children and their children to Big Sky to ski and snowmobile for a week. We stayed in this beautiful home. It had everything that we needed plus it was over the top beautiful. The kitchen was such a joy to cook in, was stocked with all the tools needed to whip up delicious meals. The kids had fun sledding down the road with the sleds that were available for our use. Had more refrigerators than we could fill. Loved the radiant heat in the floors. Best rental house that we have ever rented anywhere. The owner was a pleasure to work with. If we ever get to return to Big Sky we want to stay in this home again. Thanks so much for everything. We will always remember this vacation and the memories that were made in Big Sky, Montana

Beautiful Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This was my third time staying in the home. It has everything you could possibly need and want. The home is well suited for our family that traveled from Michigan, Oklahoma and England to spend the holiday week. We have been traveling to the mountains for 16 years and this home by far is the nicest property we have stayed in. Thank you for making your home available for all to enjoy!

Wonderful Montana home with all the finishing touches! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful home this past August. We were 5 couples in town for a wedding and the house worked out well since all rooms have large beds in them. The house is decorated beautifully from the buffalo rug, antler chandelier, large master spa bathroom, down to the saddle bar seats in the kitchen. Sidney, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. He also had some great recommendations! I would love to come back here in the winter to ski, hopefully we can make the trip this winter. Also, location is great being about 5-10min drive from Meadow Village. Get the smoked trout bagel and huckleberry shake at the Hungry Moose in Meadow Village! We used Wild Trout Outfitters for fly fishing just at the bottom of the hill, Canyon adventures for ATV, golfed at Spanish Peaks, hiked Beehive Basin and to Ousel Falls, and even played horseshoes at Half Moon Saloon! Highly recommend this place!
