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. Alternatively, you also have free access to our private ski locker (holds 5 sets of skis, boots and accessories) located at the Moonlight Lodge just 1 mile from the house. After purchasing your lift tickets in the lodge (no lines) ski directly out to the Ironhorse Chairlift from which you can access both Big Sky and Moonlight ski areas. Ski back to the lodge , leave all of your equipment, enjoy an outdoor swim, cocktails, and apres ski.

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.

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 Montana

We have been vacationing in Big Sky for the past thirteen 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!

Amazing setting for the perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cabin gave us unexpected opportunities to share and relax in a beautiful setting. The building was in pristine condition and all the details planned for. The owners are very courteous and believe in delivering a quality experience. I highly recommend and look forward to returning in the future.

Fantastic Home for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was amazing! Plenty of room and storage for four couples, a mother-in-law, and grandchildren. The architect gets rave reviews for not wasting a single inch of space and yet giving everything a spacious feel. There was plenty of room for several to work in the well-stocked kitchen and for dining inside or on the deck. The interior design is lovely and the scenery could not be better. A fox and chipmunks came to visit several times while we were there. The only slight negative was that it takes a full hour to drive to the west entrance of Yellowstone; but the accommodations are well worth that effort.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation in Big Sky and our home seems to have more than met your expectations. It would be perfect to be closer to West Yellowstone but we agree with you that the hour drive is well worth it. We love the drive along the river on our way to Yellowstone. The only alternative would be to stay in West Yellowstone which would be an entirely different Montana experience and not one, frankly, that we would appreciate. Thank you for selecting our home for your vacation.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

I was part of the 8 adults and 3 kids mentioned in Kelly G's review, and I agree with everything she said, it was a fantastic experience. We did find it difficult to come back to the house for lunch. In all the information from Janet she alludes to the fact that it might not be easy, so we knew this going in, but we still had hope. If you pick this house you should plan to eat lunch on the hill or even at Moonlight Lodge. We did not discover the Moonlight Lodge option until late in the week and wished we would have found it sooner! Everything else was great! Thanks Janet for making everything so easy.

Great home for families.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property during our spring break with 8 adults and 3 kids. We had more than enough room to spread out. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need. It was great to have the separate game room where we could be louder if the younger kids were sleeping. Janet was so attentive prior to our stay, answering questions and giving us suggestions. Everything in the house is labeled which makes it so easy to find things. We loved the Moonlight Lodge. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful "extra" this is with the house. Made skiing so easy and we loved the game room there. I would recommend this property to anyone. Just a fantastic experience.

Fantastic home in Big Sky

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property during Spring Break 2016 with our family and two others. The house handled all of the adults (6) and kids (8) quite well. The kitchen is exceptionally well stocked for a large group that likes to cook in. The seating for large groups also works quite well. The owners were very responsive and helpful

The house enjoys great views of Lone Peak and Big Sky generally. The location is convenient to Moonlight Basin and nearby to Mountain Village. We had two large snows during our trip and the property manager handled snow removal well. The house is ski-in/ski-out although the process to ski back in is a little cumbersom and can take some time. Skiing out in the morning is quite easy. The house provides a parking pass for Moonlight Lodge which is only a short drive away and very convenient access to lifts, etc... if you choose not so ski-in/ski-out. Parking is easy and close at Moonlight Lodge if you choose that route.

The home and amenities were definitely as advertised and shown in pictures and everything was good quality and worked very well.

Owner's Response: Thank you Scott for such a nice review. We love the option of ski in/ski out as well as the private parking at Moonlight Lodge, just a mile away, as a nice alternative for people who want a convenient and easy way back home.

Better than Advertized

  • 5 of 5

Although the pictures and description of the house, its furnishing and location were outstanding, we were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. Walking into the main living area, we were amazed with the breathtaking view of the mountains. The house was extremely well appointed, particularly the gourmet kitchen with a Viking range. It was a pleasure to prepare dinners at the end of a long day skiing. Ski in/ski out was easy enough (although the trip home was a little more complicated for some in our group). The best option, however, was to use the Moonlight Club as our starting and ending point. About a mile from the house, the Moonlight Club provided easy ski access and a place to meet for après ski. Then back to the house for dinner and the hot tub. Most importantly, the care taken by the owners to outfit the house and make it user friendly was extremely evident. Everything in the house was carefully explained and the owners could not be more helpful and accommodating. Finally, the mountain was spectacular -- great skiing and wonderful vistas. We also were able to forego skiing for a day to explore Yellowstone by snowmobile -- another great day.

Overall, I highly recommend this property and Big Sky generally.
