About the property

Luxury Cowboy Heaven Home on the slope- 3BR/4.5BA + large loft - Moonlight Club

* Moonlight Club Member (see details below)

* Location! Location! Location!

With only three Cowboy Heaven Mountain Homes located ON the Powder River Ski Run, this home, which is just above the Moonlight Lodge, is the PERFECT location for prime skiing in Big Sky! Just step outside your door and put your skis on to ski to the Iron Horse lift ... and you choose ... Big Sky or Moonlight Basin. It is unbeatable!!! If the perfect ski-in/ski-out location is what you are looking for, do not look any further!

Enjoy the privacy of a luxury Cowboy Heaven Mountain Home and the best ski-in/ski-out in all of Big Sky & Moonlight Basin from this 3 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom + loft 'Powder River Chalet'. If you stay in this home, you will never want to stay anywhere else in Big Sky. You can ski from your door to all 5800 acres. It is impossible to ski it all!

This home sleeps 10 comfortably with many upgrades and breathtaking views of the Spanish Peaks and the Big Sky/Moonlight ski slopes. Come and enjoy the feel of seclusion as the trees engulf the home to provide the ultimate ski destination and privacy, with the best ski-in/ski-out access possible.

The first floor boasts a large stone, wood burning fireplace in the large living room, dining area for 8, kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, and half bath, as well as a 1 car garage with an access door directly off of the slopes. You can ski-in and have plenty of space in the 'ski equipment' racks in the HEATED garage for all of your ski equipment. There are also lots of hooks to hang ski coats and gear. No need to bring any of that inside the home.

There are 3 bedrooms + a huge private loft/4th bedroom, all with private bathrooms with heated floors. The master suite is on the lower level with a king bed, a gas fireplace, breathtaking views, and a large jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Bedroom 2 & 3 are also on the lower level. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and bedroom 3 has a double over a queen log bunk bed. The loft/bedroom 4 is on the upper level of the home.

This home also has a Weber Gas grill and 8 person private outdoor hot tub on the large deck with plenty of seating. The front loading washer/dryer in the large laundry room are perfect for doing laundry or just quickly drying ski equipment, although with Big Sky's champagne powder, that is rarely necessary.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Montana

The owners were attracted to this home because of its unbeatable slope side location and views. There are many mountain homes at Moonlight Basin, but very few are on the Powder River ski run with such magnificent access to both Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. The home itself is beautifully decorated with lots of upgrades that make our family very comfortable.

What makes this house unique

Private Moonlight Club member - all guests have access to Moonlight Lodge heated pool, workout facility, ice skating, snow shoeing, cross country skiing for daily amenity fee, which is optional.

Great Home for Skiing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Located just above Moonlight Basin lodge, this home is a great Ski in/out location at the end of the street. Well appointed through out the bed/bath layout is well done. Kitchen is setup very well, great views, good hot tub, ample space in all bedrooms and loft. Wood fireplace was rather nice and the oversized single garage holds a large SUV easily. Would highly recommend this to friends and we will return at some point. Note: If you miss the 4pm lift closure at Moonlight Basin....enjoy your uphill snow hike with skis about 80' (altitude) to get to the home. It's a good workout.

The Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised when we got to house. Pictures are one thing but to see that the home was every bit as exceptional as represented was just perfect. The house was beautifully furnished, very clean, well stocked, and had gorgeous views off the back deck. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of towels were provided. It was a bonus to have the washer and dryer in the house. We enjoyed the hot tub many nights. We also used the grill quite a bit as we only ate dinner out twice during the time we were there. We spent most days touring Yellowstone and doing other activities that by dinner time we just wanted to go "home" to crash. Acra left a nice little welcoming package with some snacks and pamphlets for things to do. It was the perfect place to spend our vacation and we would rent this same home the next time we come back to Big Sky. A+++ : )

AWESOME Big Sky Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, exceptional service!

We worked directly with Moonlight Luxury Rentals and Acra Samuels, the owner/property manager. Acra was prompt, courteous, friendly, and provided a complete vacation experience.

The unit itself is a freestanding, well appointed mountain home just a few short walks to the slopes. When there's snow on the road, you can "ski in" from the run, but you have to walk about 150' (short and easy) to access the actual slope itself from the house.

The house was well stocked with every modern convenience, appliance, and even was "child proofed" if anyone wants to take toddlers or young children. There was even a stash of toys in the upstairs loft!

The price was very fair and reasonable in compared to all of the other units on Moonlight as well--I think we saved a few bucks renting direct from Acra!

We like this place so much, we already put our deposit down for next year.

A Great Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 4 nights, and had a blast. The ski-in/out was perfect for gaining access to Moonlight Basin, and was extremely convenient too. The house is furnished beautifully, while making us feel right at home. The hot tub is a major plus after a long day on the mountain, and the garage is even heated for your ski boots. Definitely a great experience, and we will definitely be renting it again when we return.
