Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our stay in Big Sky for my cousin's wedding. The owners were reachable by text the whole time if we had any questions or needed anything. Everything we could ever need was in the house for us to use. It was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely book this place again. Thank you for everything!

Best Skiing in the US

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riverview Ranch. The place was warm and inviting and the views of the mountains were amazing. The 8 inches of snow that we received during our stay made skiing at Big Sky totally Awesome! We particularly enjoyed soaking in the Hot Tub after a day on the slopes. Definitely look forward to staying at the Riverview Ranch next time we visit Big Sky!

It was very nice, I would definitely recommend.

  • 4 of 5

This was my first experience with VRBO, and it was definitely a good one. The home was clean and comfortable. Richard was very responsive to texts before and during my stay. He refunded the deposit very quickly. The only concern I had was that the 2nd night we used the hot tub, the water was not hot, it was only about 98 degrees, which isn't warm enough in January. I am certain if I had asked, it would have been fixed, but we were only there for two nights. Over - all it was awesome!

Owner's Response: Allison, so sorry about the hot tub temperature. i usually set it around 98 when its not in use (to save the electricity) and then turn it up for your arrival. I hope you were able to raise the temp to something that you liked. that being said thanks for the kind words and hope to see you folks again. Richard and Nazha

Great accommodations! Everything as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable guest house in a beautiful setting! Great appliances and linen. Comfortable beds in the bedrooms, the hide-a-bed was pretty typical but with extra padding it worked. Not a bad drive to the slopes. Overall it was a great stay and would gladly stay here again on our next trip to Big Sky.

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as I expected. It was very comfortable, and very well stocked. The owners were super helpful and available, yet not at all intrusive. We had plenty of space to spread out, and really enjoyed our stay!

We only were able to stay two nights, however, the accommodations were excellent and the hosts were very helpful. Great location with plenty of nearby good restaurants in Big Sky and not far from the West Yellowstone entrance. Great views!

About richard schultz or Nazha Schultz

My wife Nazha and I moved here 23 years ago thinking this would be a great place to spend a little time. Well, we never left. When we decided to raise a family we couldn't think of a better place for them to grow up. I'm a transplanted New Yorker and my wife was born in Morocco. We met while working in the hospitality business in New Jersey. We married shortly before we arrived in Big Sky and this is the only town we have lived in. We have two sons, Rachid just turned 18 and will be going off to school in Seattle in September. Yasin is 16 and will be starting his junior year at lone peak high school next fall. I guess we have almost come full circle here. We will be empty nesters soon.I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not.

richard schultz or Nazha Schultz purchased this apartment in 2001

Why richard schultz or Nazha Schultz chose Riverview Ranch

We bought this property mainly for the spectacular views we get from every room. It didn't hurt that the property came with a second building that had a rental apartment already to go. This was a big factor as being first time home owners. The additional rental income helped out during those early years. Of course it didn't hurt living in a nice quite neighborhood were kids could play without any worries and being able to watch the boys walk home from school was an added bonus.

What makes this apartment unique

One of the biggest benefits of living in this home and in Big Sky in general is the fact that when we come back home from vacation it feels like we are starting a new one. Another big plus is having yellowstone park just down the road. How can you beat having that just over your fence line a bit. To top it off we have an never ending parade of family and friends who come and visit. I guess that's a good thing

Car: recommended

Our property is in Big sky Montana, which is located halfway between Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park. We are only 45 minutes from the west gate in West Yellowstone, then a short scenic drive to Old Faithful We are situated in a quiet family friendly neighborhood but a short drive to all the attractions the area has to offer.

Big Sky is home to many winter and summer activities

In winter we have every type of activities you can think of, from skiing to dog sled trips and everything in between.

Summer is no less spectacular. You can enjoy a great many hiking options to world class fly fishing. Whitewater rafting to float trips. Last but not least is Yellowstone National Park. I don't have the words to describe what a national treasure the park is. We have lived here for 23 years and every time we visit we find something new and exciting. You won't believe the wild life. From Buffalo to wolves to elk herds as far as the eye can see.

If you want to come to a place were you can forget about the rest of the world and spend some quality time with friends and family, this is the place. As I said earlier we came here 23 years ago and planned to stay only one season. We just couldn't leave. This is truly the "Last Best Place"

Additionally throughout the summers there is a weekly concert series provided for free to the public. More information is available about the incoming acts on the following website. http://www.bigskyarts.org/event.php
