If you have plans to book this home we want to share that there is a large construction project directly next door. The project is a 22,000 sq. ft. home/lodge. The project will span several years and will conclude in January 2020. We anticipate this area will be a hub of activity in the summer months, for that reason we are offering significant discounts. If your plans include hanging out around the house a great deal of the time to relax we would suggest that we help you find alternative lodging. If you plan on being busy around Big Sky and Yellowstone doing activities, you may find the discounts attractive for such a large and beautiful home. Please inquire for details.
Picture-perfect views of Lone Peak; a private wooded setting; and ski-in/ski-out access to the biggest skiing in America make this Big Sky Montana Lodge an inspired starting point any time of year for your Big Sky adventures. Situated halfway between Moonlight and Big Sky Resort and bordering on a pristine tract of pines and meadow, convenience, luxury, and natural beauty reign supreme here in this elegant abode. An ideal fit for multiple families, groups, or the annual guys/gals getaway, this 3,800 sq. foot Montana log home has plenty of well-appointed space to gather, or spread out, in style.  Still too small?  This lodge is adjacent to the larger Moose Creek Lodge, so renting the two together provides a great option for accommodating parties of up to 32. Recently renovated and remodeled with luxurious finishes throughout, no detail has been overlooked at Elk Creek Lodge. Take in the evening alpenglow or whip up some sizzling steaks, relaxing on the back deck.  Go for a starlit soak in the outdoor hot tub.  Or, cozy up to a roaring fire inside. The sky is the limit. Remote but still close enough to all the action, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, this amazing alpine retreat has all the comforts of home in a mountain paradise!

Elk Creek Lodge is part of our Platinum Collection

Ski Access

(Anticipated opening date for White Otter lift is December 16, but the lift may open earlier in the season depending on snow conditions) This home is ski accessible, but not true ski-in/out

Ski Out: 
Get on groomed access trail right out the door of the house. Take a hard left on groomed access trail and follow approximately. 250 yards to the White Otter Lift. This access has a few flat areas and will require poling/skating. This may be challenging for snowboarders and children
Ski In: 
Possible for fit people who are comfortable with skating and poling. To Ski in you follow the signs from Lower Morningstar to the first set of signs for the Powder Ridge Cabins. You take an IMMEDIATE hard right turn and follow this access to the next set of signs.  Here follow access towards the Rosebud Access and Rising Bull. As you approach the cabins you will stay to the left above them on the groomed access that connects to Rising Bull Road. Once you intersect with Rising Bull Road you will follow the groomed access next to the road for approximately 250 yards. This area is flat and requires skating and poling. A sign (Bull Run) marks the turn off to the house and you will ski down an access slope to the trail behind the home. From behind the Big Sky Lodging you must walk up approximately 75 yards to the home.

Meghan and Elaine were excellent....When I called to report issues they we dealt with very professionally and very quickly...I sincerely appreciated the great service !!!
Elk Creek lodge is a very nice home......Very well equipped and maintained. Please understand that the house is VERY EASY to "ski out" but getting back at the end of the ski day is a little confusing and requires some poling / walking uphill to get back....Overall a very nice home in an excellent location !!! I would recommend Elk Creek Lodge. The BSVR staff was excellent !!!

Couldn't be happier with Big Sky rentals. Everything from booking to customer service to helping out during our stay.
Very nice house. Construction next door was not an issue. Living areas were small compared to how big the house was, but bedrooms were large and great. House was very clean and up-kept well. We rented both Elk and Moose Creek (next door) to accommodate our guests in-town for our wedding at one of the local venues.

The Big Sky Vacation rental team went out of their way to ensure we had an excellent summer trip to Big Sky. The home was spotless and so comfortable. Anything and Everything in the house was available for us. The home was set up perfectly and check in and out couldn't have been more simple. The location is a perfect base to see lots of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.

Absolutely, absolutely fabulous!! I cannot say enough about this property.... from the amazingly beautiful views off the decks to the graciously furnished interior! Slept better than we had in years! Walk easily to Big Sky Resort, hike behind the house on the ski slopes, and just enjoy enjoy this luxurious home!
