About the property

4+ Bedroom, 5 bathroom Mountain Chalet - Summit view, Skier retreat!

Resting at the top of the upper Beehive Basin (elevation 8750 ft), surrounded by breathtaking scenery, Ometa Ranch is the epitome of the Big Sky experience. With panoramic views of the Lone Peak mountain - the stunning Rocky Mountain chains included - as well as the Gallatin National Forest, you will not be left wanting.

Our spacious (7,000 square feet) log chalet will comfortably accommodate everyone: from a romantic couple's get-away to a large family, or even two. With 4 Bedrooms, three lofts, and plenty of breathing room, Ometa Ranch comfortably can sleep up to twelve guests. Charmingly styled in an Indian-Western theme, the home has many luxurious amenities including: indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, two wet bars, and an audio system throughout the house.

Upon entering the house, you are greeted by an enchanting country lounge. With an enormous wet bar and pool table, you can spend hours playing while enjoying the view. Travel upstairs, and you are welcomed by the quaint kitchen. Viking appliances throughout the kitchen offer you ample opportunities for culinary creativity.

As the centerpiece of Ometa Ranch, the full stone hearth provides the right atmosphere no matter your mood. Comfortable couches and warmth abound with an incredible view of the Big Sky Basin, waiting to greet you after a full day of adventuring in Big Sky country.

Whether you are staying during the winter or the summer, the twenty acres of land provide for a relaxing and serene escape. With a wrap around veranda, you'll be able to enjoy the surrounding alpine meadow while enjoying the views of the wild flowers or wildlife. If snow sports are your game, then you are in luck. Big Sky guarantees 500+ inches of snowfall, from November to April. Only ten minutes drive to the Biggest Skiing in America! If hiking is your preferred - all it takes is just to get outside the house, all year round, including winter snowshoeing.

Like living in a museum of Western life with every possible creature comfort and incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The Ometa ranch was much more in every way than what we were expecting. The mountain top retreat had incredible views in every direction from every room the house. Once inside the house, it was a true museum of Western life, full of collections of Western and Native American artifacts. We spent so much time just wandering around the house looking at everything. The house had every possible amenity you could ask for from a huge, gourmet kitchen to an outside hot tub to a pool table, bar, sound system, satellite TV just to name a few. Everything was clean and neat. If you are in the Big Sky are, you must stay here. Our only complaint was that the VRBO description UNDERESTIMATES how fantastic it is. Thank you! Thank you!

A Spectacular Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A weeks stay at OMETA Ranch was a phenomenal experience! First off, the house is surrounded by over 20 acres of beautiful backcountry. There is so much to do outside, from skiing/snowboarding through fresh powder, to snowshoeing up the mountain and through the woods, to even sledding. It is perfect for adventure seekers as well as casual vacationers looking to enjoy the natural beauties of Montana. The house itself is incredible with an open kitchen that has a lot of natural light. Across from the big fireplace are stunning views of Big Sky. The house also has a pool table, sauna, and jacuzzi which all are great to relax and spend time with friends and family after enjoying the day outside. My favorite part about the place is that it is very private and secluded, allowing you to enjoy and connect with the peaceful nature. Overall, staying at OMETA Ranch was a fantastic trip!

Per chi ama la natura, meraviglioso è poco! Non esagero, ma un posto così bello è una benedizione per lo spirito. Le lunghe passeggiate con le racchette da neve nel paesaggio innevato, attraversare la foresta millenaria, il passaggio di crinale in crinale con sempre nuovi scenari, erano un invito perenne a perdersi, a lasciarsi trasportare via da tanta naturale bellezza. Passo dopo passo, attorno non c’era più niente che ci ricordasse il nostro tempo, da dove venivamo. Una fantastica sensazione ci prendeva proiettandoci in una commozione fanciullesca, gioia pura. Staccarsi dalla routine quotidiana, riappropriandosi almeno in parte dei propri istinti primordiali, è riprendersi la libertà! Si, proprio belle sensazioni si sono accumulate nell’animo, un vero toccasana!


La casa, difficile da descrivere, una spettacolare Baita, costruita sul punto più in alto della zona, immersa nel bosco, totalmente in legno, grandissima. Può accogliere tranquillamente due, tre famiglie, grandi camere da letto, soppalchi, innumerevoli bagni. Zona pranzo – cucina apertissima, degna di un buon ristorante, con enorme tavolo per raccogliere attorno a sé gioiose festanti comitive. Camini pazzeschi, maestosi costruiti in pietre naturali e legno. Per non dire del salotto illuminato a giorno da una grande vetrata che offre una visuale su Big Sky da lasciare senza fiato! Ed ancora tante e tante chicche, l’angolo bar arredato con suppellettili del mitico West, con tanto di biliardo. La sauna, l’idromassaggio all’aperto, sotto il portico, sempre bollente 24h. su 24h.. L’idromassaggio in compagnia della luna mentre nevicava, indimenticabile. Guardate le foto e capirete che non esagero!!!


Un’esperienza unica, la consiglio vivamente a chiunque, fa bene al cuore! Io ci sono venuto dall’Italia, e ne sono ripartito decisamente a fatica, ma più interiormente ricco. Un grazie speciale alle persone che mi hanno permesso questa esperienza, invitandomi, la famiglia Mario&Brenda e Co. Un caro ringraziamento al responsabile del Resort il Sig. Terry sempre gentile e disponibile (P.S. quando andrai in pensione fai presente la mia richiesta di sostituirti in questo posto meraviglioso!) Grazie.

Ranch Ometa Resort mantiene tutte l’attese.

Mountain Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the OMETA ranch was a family vacation of a lifetime. We traveled with our three teenage boys. They are active and love to build their own adventures. The house is on over 20 private wooded acres and our boys skied/snowboarded in the backyard each day. With shovels, they built their own "mini-terrain" park. My husband and I spent each day snowshoeing and photographing/video taping the kids playing. We cooked dinner each night in the "chef's kitchen". (I recommend stopping at Costco in Bozeman to load up on groceries for the week.) There was fresh snow each day. (You need to rent a 4 wheel drive car in the winter/spring months.) At night, we used the telescope to view the stars (after taking a relaxing outdoor jacuzzi). We also played cards, billiards and read books by the fire. This is a great place to "reconnect" with your family/friends. THANK YOU OMETA!

OMETA Ranch - Fantastic House in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at OMETA ranch in mid February for our annual college reunion ski trip. House was amazing with all the bells and whistles including a pool table and bar area! Great kitchen and Living room with a great fireplace. Had 7 guys and all slept comfortably (2 in downstairs room 4 in main level rooms (3 singles and 1 shared in the loft) and 1 in the upstairs loft. Could have easily slept more. Owner was great to deal with and the house manager Terry was great! Close to Big Sky and other local amenities, as well as excellent backcountry skiing (and hiking we hear in the summer). Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend this special house.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home and location will exceed expectations for even the most seasoned of travelers with the highest standards.

High end living with all the amenities imaginable, completely private but yet still close to town, and the most perfect views.

This home should truly rent for easily twice the amount the owners charge, and even at that, nobody would be disappointed. Feel free to use me as a reference anytime.
