Big Sky Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3 suite + study, private hot tub,heated garage winter bliss

Indulge in Southern Comfort at the Residence at Mountain Lake, Unit 203, Big Sky’s premier destination for four season fun. Experience the rustic elegance Montana is famous for in the masterfully appointed condo with 10'ceilings and expansive windows framing skiers on Lone Peak’s Challenger run.

Play like a pro. With a heated garage, leave icy windshields and wrestling luggage behind. Store your gear in the secure area.

Vacation more, shuttle less. Within walking distance of Mountain Village amenities, let your group discover their own fun while you sip cocoa in front of the fire.

Craving solitude? This end unit has a private elevator entry, 3 decks, and master suite split from the other 2 bedroom suites. Test your culinary skills on the gas range or bbq grill. The granite island seats 6, the dining table, 10.

Tired from skiing? Soak in the hot tub, the shared outdoor spa, or a bubble bath in the grand master tub before falling off to sleep on a pillow top mattress with lush linens.

The Residences at Mountain Lake, Big Sky, Montana: Completed in 2008: a 6 unit luxury community offering an onsite heated salt water pool, outdoor spa, workout/shower facility game room and heated garage. Unlike other properties nearby you will not be sharing space with the occupants of 60-70 other units. Usually, you have the entire property to yourself.

AMPLE ROOM FOR ALL YOUR GEAR Whether mountain biking, hiking, kayaking or fishing, every activity requires tons of gear. It's frustrating to figure out where to store it in most places. When there is not room for storage, things get mixed together, broken or lost. More heart breaking is when someone breaks into your vehicle and steals them. The investment you've made to be properly outfitted for your big adventures should be part of your consideration when choosing a rental. Mt. Lake 203's secure parking garage and large mud room provide ample space to let you enjoy your trip and not spend all your time babysitting your stuff.

Our Philosophy: We believe a place to stay should feel like a place to live. We offer you optimum luxury at an affordable rate because we believe the surroundings for a vacation with friends or family should reflect the rich memories and precious moments experienced here.

We believe warm hospitality can set the mood for your stay. Our kitchen is generously stocked with much more than the basics, and guests have graciously honored the “if you use it up, please replace it” manner over the years.

We believe sleeping under the same roof, and falling in love with the same views makes us close to kin. We are currently building our guest roster of family and friends who share the same values and goals, and would desire to have an ongoing relationship with 203 Mountain Lake. We send occasional emails with newsworthy updates on bear or moose sightings, or the occasional U.S.A. President.

We believe our second home can become your home away from home too

Handicap Accessible, Hospitality Expectable: Mt. Lake 203 is an ideal unit for those in your party with limited mobility. Its heated garage entrance and private elevator, large door ways and one level layout afford access for walkers or wheelchairs. Both the master and second bedroom have large, walk-in showers. In addition, the three decks allow those with limited mobility to still enjoy the great outdoors. This past summer/fall season bear, bald eagles and bull moose have been viewed from our decks!

PERFECT for lodging for Big Sky Medical Dental Symposium --easy access to event site. Also excellent choice for Family Reunions, Destination Wedding Party housing.

We provide free in condo wifi, direct tv hi def programming, and a growing DVD library.

We take pride in treating our guests like royalty. We believe every trip to Big Sky should be the trip of a lifetime. We will go out of our way to provide you with recommendations from years of experiencing 'the last best place,' suited to your groups needs.

About Shirley Walker

We fell in love with Montana in 1997 on a trip to Yellowstone. We still find it hard to believe a place like this still exists in the lower 48, where you can hike all day and never see another soul, ski rather than wait in a lift line during Spring Break and find adventure around every turn.

We have three grown children and find that the best way to connect with them is when we are in Montana, away from our usual schedules and engrossed in all the fun and adventure Big Sky offers.

Our home reflects our personal values--to strive for excellence, extend warm hospitality and treat the surroundings with care. We look for guests who share this same outlook.

Shirley Walker purchased this condo in 2008

Why Shirley Walker chose Big Sky

This is our second property to own in the Big Sky area. We started out with a small 2 bedroom ski in ski out cabin--but it was way too small for our family. Having been in the Big Sky area for over a decade, we were very particular in our search for the perfect property. This condo exceeds what we set out to find.

We wondered if we would miss the convenience of 'ski in/ski out' but discovered this beat what we had by far--we actually had a ski out/hike back in which took a good while to traverse to where we wanted to actually ski--on cold days, this was miserable. Now we get in our warm car in the heated garage, drive to the parking in front of the lift and go play!

What makes this condo unique

The unique, personally owned 6 unit luxury development, the spacious and secure heated garage with private elevator and the fabulous 3 bedroom on suite unit provide the backdrop for a vacation that feels more like a spa than just another place to lay your head.

With ten foot ceilings, dining seating for 14 and a Grand Room that boasts a 10X14 Persian Rug, you'll spend your time enjoying each others company and not tripping over suitcases.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is even more beautiful than the photos suggest. We are thrilled to be here and excited to get on the mountain! Getting to my conference was a piece of cake, and I am certainly not regretting my decision to stay off site!

This property is gorgeous. It had an elegant, yet rugged feel. I felt like I was in a dream home that overlooked gorgeous mountains. The amenities were perfect. As a Dallas lady, I love knowing I can do "the outdoors" and come in for an evening feeling like I'm in the city. Highly recommend this property!!

The perfect place to stay in Big Sky!

  • 5 of 5
I have rented many homes and condos in the Big Sky area, but NONE compare to this gorgeous condo! My husband and I spent a week in this condo, and it was an incredible experience. Each room is beautifully furnished and we felt very "at home" here. The kitchen is well-stocked with high quality cookware! We really enjoyed making waffles in the Belgium waffle maker! Shirley, the owner, was wonderful to deal with. She was very organized and answered all of our questions. The location of the condo is perfect. The view out of the master bedroom is to-die for! The sun shining off Lone Peak greets you every morning as a fun-filled day in the mountains awaits. We hiked, went fly-fishing, and saw many animals (moose, elk, fox, mule deer, etc!) The condo is only a few miles from town, which makes it easy to enjoy a delicious Blue Moon Bakery pizza after a long day of hiking!
You don't need to look any farther for a perfect place to stay in Big Sky! This is it! Cozy, comfortable, and convenient.

Amazing location and property - unfortunate terms

  • 2 of 5
As the four of us arrived for our ski vacation, we could not have been more impressed! What a wonderful place and location and it is true when they say the pictures do not do it justice.
Unfortunately, upon stripping all sheets from beds as requested, the terms of our stay were somewhat defaulted as I was informed we had extra people staying with us (false).
When speaking to Shirley on the phone, I informed her (in all honesty) a friend had spent the night after dinner and one passed through late one evening for a brief period. This somehow has lead to a withhold on part of my security deposit per her "prerogative". I guess our party was not "allowed" to serve dinner or be good, caring people. I now feel as though we were monitored, spied on by the fireplace repair man and treated poorly. The four of us looked forward to returning but sadly, will not be.
As seasoned and frequent travelers, none of us have ever had an issue such as this,
Be wary of being an honest person, I guess.

Owner's Response: With regret we accept this review from Melissa who admits she had more guests than she requested spending the night at the condo. Both our quote for rental, (which was a reduced rate due to the smaller group size) and the rental agreement that she signed indicate a party of four. “MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY – The maximum number of overnight guests is limited to the number quoted in the reservation. Additional persons added may incur an additional charge.” Rental agreement, signed October 1, 2013
Our insurance policy requires only persons authorized to use our property, as our liability coverage only extends to these. The condominium features a swimming pool, game room and work out facility—elements which carry a greater amount of risk. For safe practice, we maintain a policy regarding unauthorized occupants and also, when made aware of its violation, to enforce it. Should Melissa have sent me an email or text indicating her desire to have additional people spend nights, we would have warmly accommodated her request. We only discovered this later from maintenance personnel. Our withholding of $100 for her noncompliance with the rental agreement is a reasonable response to protect our property for the benefit of future guests.

Beautifully Decorated & Very Comfortable!

Beautifully Decorated & Very Comfortable!
  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 recently stayed in this condo for a ski vacation. The owner, Shirley, was great to work with. Upon arrival, we were impressed by the space of the great room & kitchen. The furnishings are of very nice quality and allowed our family to spread out in great comfort. The decor throughout the condo is really nice for that matter! The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with herbs, condiments and other basic needs. The beds were comfortable and the linens, very nice too. Another aspect that we liked was the large vestibule right off the elevator. It is a space dedicated to this unit and it is where we could conveniently keep our boots and skis and had a wide bench to sit on. We only encountered one minor problem, and I mention it because Shirley took care of it promptly, which is important to know when renting by owner.

Our view of Lone Peak was wonderful too....what a beautiful mountain.

In summary, I highly recommend this very nice condo.

Breathtaking views inside and out!

  • 5 of 5
This place is breathtaking. The views from the deck and hot tub are amazing. Even more so, the inside is simply stunning as no detail was overlooked to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Space was ample. Beds and linens comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked. Indoor parking made it a breeze for those snowy days. And to top it off, the mountain is within a 2min drive or shuttle. The owner, Shirley, is a pleasure to deal with and provides you with answers to all of your concerns/questions. You will not be disappointed with any part of your trip if you stay here. Simply an amaizing stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for capturing what we cannot put into words: your experience and enthusiasm for what we like to call "Southern Comfort in the Northern Rockies!" Two things mentioned worth repeating: the short distance to the slopes from a heated garage---it doeeeeesss make a difference!

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this amazing vacation rental for 4 nights/5days for a family ski trip during March. Every step of the process with the owner was enjoyable. She was extremely responsive to my emails and shared a wealth of information with us to ensure we had the best ski vacation for our family. There were just three of us, myself, husband and 5 yr. old son. We enjoyed the impeccably maintained condo so much, it was hard to leave to go skiing. The views are hard to capture with words as they are breathtaking from the living room, master bedroom and hot tub. The furnishings, appliances and ambiance of the condo are luxury and cozy at the same time. Accessibility to skiing was easy. We now can't imagine staying anywhere else. Not only because of the skiing in Big Sky, but because this vacation rental is perfect! We cannot wait to return. Thank you Shirley for sharing your home with us.
