House, 5 Bedrooms + Rec./Bunkroom, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

As Signature Members of the private Moonlight Club including The Reserve Golf Course, we are excited to extend privileges to our tenants - see Amenities Section below. This unique home has a groomed ski-in/ski-out trail that runs directly up to the house. There are panoramic views of Lone Peak from throughout the house. You are welcomed by a large inviting entryway leading into an open floor plan that includes the spacious kitchen, dining, breakfast nook and living room. Unique architectural details abound including the circular loft with sitting area. The curved stone wood-burning fireplace serves as the focal point in the living room. Sitting on a gentle sloping 1.5-acre property in the exclusive Cascade Highlands this 5-bedroom, 5-bath, 4400+ square foot home offers one-level living, with large windows in every room, a firepit on the back patio, a pond and recirculating stream (summertime) in the backyard, a large back patio with awesome mountain views, firepit, horseshoe pits and a large outdoor hot tub/spa.

This exclusive retreat also has a large recreation/bunkroom, with its own private bathroom, which some consider a sixth bedroom and is perfect for families with children. This large, kid-haven room (air hockey table) with 2 bunk beds and a dedicated full bath also has a large flat screen HDTV/Blu-ray/DVD and Wii area and lots of games. The two car garage also houses a quality ping pong table for everyone's enjoyment.

We have outfitted this beautiful home entirely with furnishings in an elegant, yet comfortable style including rustic bedroom sets, 8 flat-screen TVs, and a rustic wood dining table that seats 12 plus 4 more at a breakfast nook table. You will also love our spacious gourmet kitchen that is fully stocked and equipped with stainless appliances for the chefs in your group.

We have furnished our mountain home for fun and comfort. Two of the bedrooms are appointed with the innovative Sleep Number, top-of-the-line, king mattresses to ensure the finest quality sleep and comfort.

Our quoted rates are for up to 12 people. Add $25 per night for each additional guest. Posted rates assume a Saturday check-in.

The location of this lovely home is your ideal vacation spot for both winter and summer activities. You will ski out to Big Sky Resort right from our door on a groomed trail using the White Otter Lift. A groomed trail brings you back right up to the spa and house. The Gallatin River, world-class fly-fishing and an Arnold Palmer 18-hole golf course are just minutes away. The amazing Yellowstone National Park is only an hour and a quarter drive from our home!

About Janet Acheatel

We love Montana and Big Sky provides us with everything we want in outdoor activities.

Janet Acheatel purchased this house in 2013

Why Janet Acheatel chose Big Sky

We have been vacationing in Big Sky for the past eleven years. Since we love the beauty and abundance of wildlife and activities, both winter and summer, we decided to establish a second home for ourselves, our children and grandchildren. We know you will enjoy vacationing in our home!

What makes this house unique

Sharing vacations with family and friends has provided us with many incredible adventures and experiences but just spending time with each other is what has brought us the most enjoyment. There's nothing quite as special as spending dedicated time with those you love most. Our home offers you year-round, endless hours of fun and activities to entertain you and your guests and, most important, the gift of memories for a lifetime!

Lovely mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house with lots of lovely amenities; ditto comments made by prior reviewers. The house has big enough living and dining rooms to easily accommodate 10 people. It is very well furnished. Kitchen is VERY well stocked with equipment and basic foodstuffs. We loved having the extra frig in the garage and the warming shelf over the stove was really nice.  The books with house information and lists were very helpful, as were all the labels on the light switches and kitchen drawers.  It is obvious someone spent a lot of time to save the guests' time. The view from the patio is awesome. Great hot tub, too.

Ski-out is possible, even when the snow isn't very good. Ski-in is difficult under "spring conditions".

The rec room would be perfect for an extended family with lots of kids. The house has a lot of nice accessories, so I wouldn't recommend it for people with very small children, as it is not child-proofed. The common area floors and several bathrooms have textured tile that is both slippery and not smooth, so that might preclude someone who needs to use a walker or wheelchair. Also, elevation of 7500' +/- might be a concern to someone with heart issues or breathing difficulties.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that Carol and her group had a 5-star vacation in our home. The house easy accommodate 12-14 people. It is so gratifying to read the reviews and know that families and friends of all ages (read Scott W's review) love the house. While the home is well-appointed, we have been very fortunate that our guests take good care of the property - even children, so no worries. Lastly, there are radiant-heated slate floors in the common-living areas and baths. With many families, including our own, having vacationed in our home with small children, we have never had an instance of anyone slipping. All but 3 bedrooms of this large home are wheelchair accessible.

Beautiful home inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect if you are traveling with a large group. We had 5 couples and each bedroom was beautiful. We chose numbers ahead of time to get in line for the bedroom selection, but honestly it wasn't needed. Every room has a king bed and is wonderfully decorated. The Game room was so much fun to have - air hockey, surround sound, bunk beds for lounging, and a good selection of movies. We were blown away by the view of the mountain out of the family room windows. Incredibly convenient to get to the lift (one mile drive). The access to Moonlight Lodge is such a huge advantage. Do not overlook this "perk"! We felt like we were skiing at a private club due to the locker room access, valet parking, and gorgeous Apres location. The hot tub was a nice addition to our fun as well. What a view! We needed snow (not a single powder day) but it was an amazing trip!

WONDERFUL VACATION AND AMAZING HOME

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this excellent home. The trip was an extended-family ski vacation with lots of kids/parents/siblings/grandparents with ages ranging from 1 year of age, to a grandpa at age 83! The house is soooo perfect for groups as it is so well laid out with lovely useful spaces for gathering (open living/kitchen/dining) and spacious bedrooms that are nicely separated (very convenient for groups with varying bedtime and awakening hours!), this is the benefit of a rambler style! Add to that cozy furnishings, stunning views of Lone Mountain/Big Sky, and excellent location--it can't be beat. Lastly, regarding the owner, I have been doing VRBO many many times all over the country, and I have never come across an owner that was so pleasant and helpful, and really wants her renters to have a wonderful vacation. ---and we sure did. Thanks you, and we'll be back. ( On a similar note--I have never been so torn writing such a great review as this one because on one hand I want to accurately portray what a special place this is , but on the other hand I am worried that the word will get out on this amazing home--- and we will want to rent it again and I hope it will still be available!!)

Outstanding ski vacation home with accomodating owner

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful home with a group of 12 skiers of all levels and ages. The large bedrooms and multiple bathrooms made everyone happy while the huge kitchen and dining area able to seat everyone together (with a little crowding) allowed some great shared meal preparation and enjoyment. The owner was extremely accommodating with parking for Moonlight Lodge which we used as our base of operation since the ski in/out options were too difficult for the newest and oldest skiers. Everything we needed was provided for in this fantastic house and we recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy Big Sky, Montana and plan to return again in the coming years.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your vacation at our home and that our Signature membership in the private Moonlight Club provided an easy and convenient way for you to get to the slopes. Our dining room table normally fits 8 people but with the two extensions, groups of 12 can be able to sit together comfortably. For groups larger than 12, we have seating for 4-6 at our breakfast table and 3 bar stools at the counter between the kitchen and dining room.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group goes skiing every year and we selected this home for our Big Sky trip. Everyone had plenty of room to relax and the cooks in the group loved the kitchen. The owners were very thoughtful in supplying the house with items you don't normally see in rental properties. Access to the Moonlight Club made it easy to get to the slopes. The view was spectacular and our ski delivery guy said it was the best one on the mountain! Great times had by all.

A fantastic home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of grandparents, married children and our 8 month old grandson had a wonderful time in Big Sky. The house was amazing! Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and a large kitchen where everyone helped cook. Beautiful outdoor views, and so many activities in the house ~ games, Wii, Air Hockey, Ping Pong...etc. This home is perfect for family get-togethers! We went fly fishing, hiking, golfing, walked around the ski resort, shopping. We'll be back!
