Overview

Big Sky Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Cedar Creek at Big Sky, your Gateway to Yellowstone National Park adventure! Whitewater rafting, blue ribbon fly fishing, high alpine hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, geysers, bison, elk, and more await you in Big Sky, Montana.

Big Sky Resort is right out the door and Moonlight Basin is 2 miles away. In summer, ride the lift up and take the fast way down with downhill mountain biking at Big Sky Resort. Bikes and safety gear are available for rent. Hiking trails start right out the door. The trailhead for the spectacular Beehive Basin is 2 miles away. There are 13 bars and restaurants within walking distance. The Mountain Village also has galleries, boutiques, a convenience store, and a business center. Big Sky Basecamp features a tandem zip line, a zip line canyon course, high ropes course, and aerial bungee trampoline.

Montana seems a little further away from it all, but is easier than ever to get to with several direct flights to Bozeman. Big Sky is your gateway to Yellowstone National Park. Experience true Montana hospitality, a slower pace of life, the rustic West, and jaw-dropping views. And in winter, NO CROWDS and NO LIFTLINES, and the 'Biggest skiing in America.'

Yellowstone National Park, less than an hour away, is a great place to see buffalo, elk, moose, bald eagles, wolves and maybe even a grizzly, as wells as the hot springs and geysers. Explore Yellowstone's wildlife and ecosystem on a backcountry snow-coach tour. 

Cedar Creek at Big Sky is just 1 minute from the Big Sky Resort base area and 300 steps from the White Otter ski lift. Experience the BIGGEST ski area in the US with 4350 vertical feet and NO LIFT LINES.

The largest groomed network of cross-country ski trails is 7 miles away at Lone Mountain Ranch. Explore hundreds of miles of groomed snow mobile trails and access amazing backcountry.

Hundreds of miles of hiking trails to alpine lakes, high mountain peaks, old fire look-out towers, and high meadows filled with wildflowers. Trails right out your door.

About Lee Griffiths

I escaped Washington DC ten years ago and spent two winters skiing all over the world. Having skied 50+ resorts, Big Sky was my hands down favorite. I've lived here for eight years, my first two winters as a ski instructor. Having decided to stay full-time, I started a construction consulting business and a landscaping company. And I still work as a part-time ski instructor.

Lee Griffiths purchased this condo in 2004

Why Lee Griffiths chose Big Sky

I used to live in DC, which has some of the worst traffic in the country. My commute could be 1-2 hours, sometimes more. When I moved to Big Sky, I wanted to be able to walk to the base area in minutes. I wanted to be 2 minutes from the closest ski lift and I wanted to be able to ski home. My neighbors are ski-in/ski-out, so I would ski down their trail, cross the street, and walk in the door.

What makes this condo unique

Right out the living room window is a fantastic view of the Mt. Wilson and the Spanish Peaks range. At sunset, after the Mt Village is in the shadow of Lone Peak, the alpen-glow illuminates the Spanish Peaks.

Nice

  • 4 of 5

Recommended by a friend. I'm used to staying slopeside so the transportation was for me (over 50) was a bit much. Once we figured it out then not too bad. This was our first trip to Big Sky and won't be our last!

Very nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week in Big Sky and felt very comfortable in this condo which was very clean, bright, tastefully decorated and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes and utensils including garbage bags, Saran Wrap, foil etc.

The Wi-Fi worked great for us and the owner was very friendly and helpful with his recommendations. We are planning to return here this summer.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend visiting Big Sky and this condo was perfect for us to use as a home base for our explorations. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We followed his "Perfect Day in Yellowstone" directions and truly had the best day. The condo had all of the amenities we needed, was clean, and well maintained. We would definitely come back and stay here. We want to try skiing in Big Sky now!

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Was a little worried after reading the reviews but I talked with the owner and felt confident renting it. The place was nice with new carpet and floors. Kitchen had the basics. The wifi worked fine and the one night we stayed in the TV was fine too. The other families here were friendly and the locals were very welcoming everywhere we went.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and basic. For us, the wifi worked fine. We took the free shuttle as it would have been a 5 minute walk carrying gear to the base area. Good deal for the price.

Do not stay here

  • 1 of 5

Would NOT stay here again. Only positive is that it is close to Big Sky Ski Resort. Not necessarily walking distance- especially if carrying gear. Major negatives: very DIRTY (stain on walls, toilet stains, dirty shower, paint chipping off walls, dust everywhere, dirty couches/chairs, stains on sheets and comforter!, dirty windows- can see drawings made by kids when windows had condensation on them previously), bare minimum cooking utensils for staying there for a week, noisy neighborhood (loud cars/trucks), revving engines in middle of night), shower with alternating low/medium pressure and hot/cold temps, no pets per owner but everyone else has pets there, old towels for showering/smelled like mildew, very small (500 sq feet probably), pictures do not accurately portray actual dwelling. Did I mention dirty!?

My biggest complaint: NO WIFI. I specifically emailed the owner asking if there wasn't WIFI because some of the comments from visitors mentioned wifi. He replied "most people don't have issues with wifi and I have a wifi booster." He failed to mention that you have to buy daily or weekly wifi from local telephone company. Owner is deceiving- could have easily mentioned that in his reply email. Appeared that owner lives in building across parking lot and when we complained about wifi he walked over and dropped off the wifi booster he probably just bought from electronics store. This was weird to us and awkward.

Owner willing to be deceiving to customers to make $$$$. This is unfortunate.

Words of advice: do not rent this place.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy our condo. Our listing specifically states that no pets are allowed. Our condo allows pets for owners but not renters. When you tried to bring 2 dogs and were told you couldn't have them, you got very upset and I'm sorry that writing a false review is what you feel is appropriate. Since your experience with the wifi was so bad, I have changed internet providers and we now offer FREE WIFI to all our guests. While we do have DirecTV with 100+ channels, I apologize that it wasn't enough for your interests. There is a channel listing next to the TV and in the guest book that lists the channels, so you don't have to surf through the infomercials. That's also why the condo has a DVD player, games, and books.
