Big Sky Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3 suite + study, private hot tub,heated seasonal pool and summer bliss

The Residence at Mountain Lake, Unit 203, BIG SKY’s premier Mountain Village Destination for four season fun makes an ideal base camp from which to experience the greater YELLOWSTONE area.

Located approximately 75 miles from either the Gardener or W. Yellowstone entrance, this masterfully appointed 2375 sq.’ condo with 10’ ceilings and 3 large decks capturing the views of Lake Levinsky and Lone Peak, provides the glorious outdoors away from the crowds most Yellowstone vacations are famous for.

HANDICAP accessible. Offering an onsite SEASONAL heated salt water POOL, outdoor spa, workout and shower facility and heated garage. Recreation and wildlife are directly at your doorstep. This condo is less than a block to the Mountain Mall, and less than 2 miles from Moonlight Basin’s Lodge. Beehive Basin trail head is 300 yards away.

With off-the-deck access to Big Sky’s fabulous four season recreation, you are in walking distance to hiking, fishing, boating, tennis, shopping, mountain biking. For those ready to relax or play, pamper yourself in the grand comfort of a fabulous residence.

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 Expect-able: 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!

Amazing Place To Stay At Big Sky

  • 5 of 5

Three couples have ski'd together every year for 10 years. This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. It is VERY spacious, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and it is easy to get to and from the mountain on the shuttle bus. Having a private hot tub is just great. Even though it is on the second floor, there is an elevator so getting all your gear to the condo is very easy. There was one parking space available but easy to find a place to park the second car we had. We would rent this place again in a heart beat!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property!! The view of Lone Mountain is amazing! The condo was great. It was very spacious... much more than expected. The kitchen was well stocked with all the needed tools. We loved the location - very close to the base of the mountain. We drove, used the shuttle and walked. The heated garage was a treat. I highly recommend this place to others looking. Shirley was a pleasure to work with. We will stay here on our next Big Sky vacation.

Great Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very spacious and well appointed. We were running the Rut and the location was perfect. It was an easy walk to the village which we did a couple of times with our 6 and 2 year old. We are planning on staying here our next time at Big Sky.

My favorite of all the places I've stayed in Mt.

  • 5 of 5

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.
