About Tom Chou

Our family is from Southern California and we use this property as our vacation home. It's become a family tradition and we visit 2-3 times per year. We have a 10 year old daughter who loves the neighborhood animals, including Henry the Goat.

Tom Chou purchased this house in 2002

Why Tom Chou chose Big Sky

We fell in love with Montana nearly 20 years ago. I'm a passionate fly fisherman, and this location is close to some of the best fly fishing in the world. Once you visit Montana, you'll be hooked. It becomes part of you.

What makes this house unique

This home sits on top of a hill with spectacular Gallatin Valley views. The sitting room is one of the best rooms in the house to take in the views, read, and nap. It's a perfect base camp for the multitude of activities available in the area. It's close enough to the main highway to conveniently get to all the activities close by, but still private. It's less than 15 minutes to the ski resort in the winter one way, and only 45 minutes to West Yellowstone the other. The Big Sky Town Center is a mere 5 minutes up the road. The home has porches back and front, including a hot tub, so you can sit with a glass of wine and soak in the beauty and grandeur of Montana.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the property and it worked out perfect. The parking was big enough for our trailers and the house is clean and well kept.

The only thing that it needs is a different coffee pot.

I would highly recommend this property.

Amazing space near Big Sky

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything it was advertised to be and comfortably fit our group of 8 during our time in Montana. We thoroughly enjoyed being so close to Big Sky, Yellowstone, and the amazing views the property has to offer. Tom was extremely helpful and helped us organize everything we needed to before we even landed. He even pointed us to some great bakeries in the area for my girlfriends birthday cake. We definitely all had an amazing time and would love to rent the house again during a trip to Big Sky!

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

1st time at this house. Great location for us, actually some of us snowmobiled right to it from the rental shop and dining. Plenty of room, great views, clean, very accommodating, everyone had a great time. Look forward to staying here again.

Our family loves this home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying at this beautiful home! It is the perfect spot for a family get together with plenty of room. The home had everything we needed. We had a beautiful drive through Yellowstone and enjoyed the views from the hot tub after a day of fishing the Gallatin. Can't wait to come back!

You will love it.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family vacation with people coming from 3 states. House is up on a hill with great views of the surrounding mountains. The Big Sky area is 5 minutes away with shops and hiking. Horse back riding is just down the road and West Yellowstone is just under and hour away. Great place and well stocked. We will be back!

Montana Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with 12 people and the teenage girl cousins thought the small cabin was the greatest thing ever.

The Big Sky area is close to everything.

This was a great vacation spot. The Property Managers and Tom were on top of everything.

Thanks again.

Located in Big Sky, less than 50 miles from West Yellowstone and perched above the Gallatin River on 5 private acres, yet conveniently located near highway 191 for easy access to activities all year round, especially Yellowstone National Park. You can walk to the river to fly fish, or it's just a 15 minute drive to the ski resort.
