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. www.mountainlakemt.com

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.

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

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!

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.

Paradise in Big Sky :)

  • Submitted: Mar 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Beautiful, spacious luxury vacation home. Amazing views, two decks & relaxing hot tub. I am hesitant to tell others about this place because it was such a gem! We enjoyed early morning sunrises, tons of powder, tasty meals and relaxing evenings both inside and out. The home is perfect for a group of people because it is spacious enough where night owls can stay awake chatting, watching movies or playing games & the early risers can get to bed without being disturbed. The home was very clean, the furniture and beds comfortable. We loved the cozy fireplaces and the extra blankets for colder evenings. The kitchen was well stocked with olive oil, cooking spray, numerous condiments, spices, flour, sugar, waffle maker and crockpot - things that you don't alway find in a vacation rental. This made it more like a home away from home. The location was far enough from the village to be relaxing but a quick shuttle ride away for hitting the slopes or just swinging down for a bite. Our group cannot wait to return & we are hoping to make it an annual trip!

Amazing location and property - unfortunate terms

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
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.

Shirley,
We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home. Everything was perfect and the amenities made our stay wonderful. It snowed nearly everyday and the skiing conditions were outstanding.

Thanks again, we'll look froward to renting from you in the future if possible.

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!

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

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you Alissa,
Guests such as yourself make it a joy to share our property! We feel like, if we can't be there taking in the fabulous scenery, somebody should be. We would be honored to host you or your friends in the future.

We'd like to thank the Walker's for sharing their Big Sky condo with our group of four skiers. It did not meet our expectatons, it exceeded them in every way!!! The property was meticulously maintained, beautifully decorated, and the kitchen was a phenomenal place to prepare and enjoy meals. The heated garage was a real plus...didn't miss having to scrape the car windows in the morning or get into a sub zero car and the elevator ride to the second floor, opening to your own private "lobby", made it feel like a five star hotel (but much better). The hot tub was amazing and helped ease our pains after a day of skiing at Big Sky. The layout of the condo was such that it allowed plenty of privacy as each bedroom had its own bath and all bedrooms are away from the great room/kitchen area so the early risers didn't have to worry about disturbing others. The Lotus Pad (Thai) restaurant was delicious (make a reservation its very small) and the Hungry Moose had a great supply of groceries for a small place both located in the village down the hill. We had a car so didn't use the shuttle except once and it was fine. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!! We'd love to come back in the warmer months to enjoy other activities such as hiking, rafting etc The skiing was great, would have been even better with a couple more feet of snow, but considering no place else in the country had decent snow, we feel extremely fortunate. The owners provided great service and we give the highest recommendation of their home! Thanks again! Karen and Jeff
Owner's Response: Thank YOU Karen and Jeff. We really appreciate your input on other area services, as we are committed to helping folks have the Best Time ever in the Last Best Place.

Travelers like you are why we choose to share our home away from home---if we can't be there loving it, someone needs to be! We look forward to hosting you again.

Storybook Christmas

The Walkers opened their home for our family to come and enjoy our "best Christmas yet" as heard quoted by the kids several times. It is true that the pictures do not do this home justice. Once we walked off the private elevator into our home-away-from-home it was all smiles for a week. Christmas eve fireworks were enjoyed by everyone either from the deck or the hot tub, the kids loved the bunk beds and the grown-ups loved getting away from everyone in their quiet master suites.
