Spectacular Home and Majestic Mountain Views
Our group of adults and teenagers stayed in this home for a week over Spring Break 2011 for skiing in nearby Big Sky. The home exceeded our expectations. It was exquisitely furnished and decorated, and offered many special amenities, including spectacular views of the mountains from all the living areas and master bedrooms, the hot tub, an outdoor mountain view porch with an outdoor fireplace, whole house sound and light system, and gourmet kitchen. We loved gathering in the family room area to watch March Madness basketball games after skiing on the big screen TV while also enjoying the wood burning fireplace there. The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for all of our needs - several of the teens slept upstairs in the bunk room, also equipped with its own bathroom. In addition to enjoying this spectacular home, we also were able to take advantage of the privileges of membership of the nearby Spanish Peaks Club, which was a few minutes drive away. The club offers many amenities, including a beautiful lodge and dining room. Most especially, it offers its own ski area which adjoins the Big Sky resort. At the beginning of the day, we were able to begin our skiing from the clubhouse back entrance. We would begin by skiing the lifts in the Spanish Peaks-owned ski area (which does not require a lift ticket if you are a club member) and then after 2 lifts, we could take a run that would take us to the Big Sky ski area (which does require a lift ticket). At the end of each day's skiing, we were able to ski directly from the Big Sky resort to the clubhouse. We left our skis and boots at the clubhouse and the club staff brought the skis outside each morning for us. We were so spoiled never having to heft our skis and poles and walk in our boots more than a few steps each day! At the end of the day, we all enjoyed gathering in front of the huge fireplace in the clubhouse for a few apres ski beverages before heading the few minutes home. During the week we also enjoyed dinner at the club which was delicious and the massages offered through the club. It was a memorable vacation and one that we would love to repeat. We would not hesitate to recommend this house to friends or relatives.
In addition, the house is about an hour from the West entrance of Yellowstone. We booked a snowmobile trip that allowed us to drive snowmobiles into the park and to Old Faithful with a guide. The scenery was spectacular and we saw many animals. We loved this trip also!
