Larger than life views of Lone Peak and Andesite Mountain make this majestic home an inspired backdrop any time of year for your Big Sky adventures. Situated near the Moonlight entrance in private wooded surroundings, this elegant, ski-accessible chalet affords ample opportunities for wildlife viewing.  Convenience, luxury, and natural beauty reign supreme here.  An ideal fit for large (or multiple) families, groups of friends/colleagues, or up to 4 vacationing couples, this 4,000 sq. foot custom lodge offers an abundance of immaculate, professionally-decorated space to gather, or spread out, in style.  Upgraded with luxurious finishes throughout, no detail has been overlooked at Swift Bear.  Featuring an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, a gourmet kitchen, rich draperies, and new furniture, this fashionable abode lets you live the VIP life at elevation.  The great room's floor to ceiling windows frame the mountain expanse like a precious piece of art.  The outdoor fireplace and hottub on the breathtaking front deck provide the perfect haven for stargazing or taking in a picturesque sunset.  Rest easy knowing that this home is environmentally and green energy conscious with a Geothermal HVAC and LEED Platinum Five Star Plus rating, leaving a significantly lower carbon footprint than the standard rental.  Splendidly secluded 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!

Best for intermediate and expert skiers. The ski in and out are very long and utilize several groomed real estate trails and real estate access lifts. Poling and skating will be necessary. Ski accessible, but not true ski-in/out.

Ski Out:
Follow the groomed trail by the house and go through the tunnel to the White Otter chair lift. Ride White Otter to the top and cross White Wing to follow signage to the Big Sky Base area.
Ski In: 
Follow White Otter Access to the rope tow for the Cascade. Take the Cascade Lift to the top and climb the stairs to a groomed trail that will take you back to Swift Bear Chalet.

I knew nothing about the area and what was available and I was trying to arrange a trip for 11 family members of all ages. Nicolle answered every question, suggestions as to activities, arranged our snowmobiling experience and dinner at Everetts., Kirsten King responded to one of my questions about transportation for an our drive to our snowmobiling experience. She is the owner and gave me her honest opinion, directions, etc. I loved it! Talked to Brett more than once....always kind!! These people pay attention to their homes and to their guests. You cannot go wrong renting from them!!! We will be renting from them again!!
All 11 members of our family loved the home!!! Plenty of televisions and activities for the kids. Wi-fi worked great! And we had 21 inches of snow the first day!!!

This is a wonderful home with beautiful decor and ammentities. The view is wonderful. We loved the toiletry dispensers in the showers and the generous starter pack with household items. The view from the hot tub is amazing and outdoor fireplace adds to the ambiance. It does take a bit to figure out the ski in and ski out. Skiing out is easy. Skiing in does require to use the tow rope, stairs and and carrying skis up the hill of the driveway. We appreciated the knowledge and prompt response of Big Sky vacation rentals.

Received great service. Minor issues were fixed immediately and got help over the phone to solve other issues. Really great house. Very homey and has a good feel to it. Layout is very well thought and is perfect for a large family. Kitchen is well equipped and is great for home cooking. Definitely a house we will come back to.
Great house. Well organized and equipped. Snow was removed promptly from the driveway and jacuzzi. Got great service from BSVR.

The house was absolutely stunning. Extremely clean and decorated beautifully. All amenities that you could possibly ask for to prepare meals along with a great big dining table. Our hot tub did not work... that was the only problem. We were reimbursed $50 per night because of this and the management group of the property were extremely thorough. We also had a huge slide of snow fall off the roof and onto our rental car! It caused significant damage... we submitted a claim to our personal insurance..... but we are not sure of the result yet. House was amazing and would recommend without reservation despite the avalanche on our car and the hot tub!

Pleasent to work with staff! Staff knows and lives in the area which made every question I had easy to get an answer! Staff treated my family like we were the only vacationers they had! Every request while we were there was answered at the greatest level of urgency!!
House is spread out enough music playing or tv blaring cant be heard in bedrooms! Hot tub and outdoor firpit set the mood for relaxing days and nights even in the dead of winter! Best views on the mountain! Wide open house great for entertaining, relaxing and all around location.

Our party of 6, 4 adults and 2 teenagers enjoyed a wonderful week at Swift Bear Chalet. It is beautifully decorated, the kitchen and laundry are well stocked with cleaning products, store cupboard essentials and crockery. The bedrooms and bathrooms are top end quality and the views are stunning. We all wished we had longer to enjoy both the house and the surrounding area - wonderful.

We've rented a lot of homes over the years, and Swift Bear Chalet tops them all as a composite of comfort, amenities, location, and staff support. The house is perfect for our group of 7, though it can sleep more without difficulty. Being that it's a mile from the entrance to Big Sky Resort, you're 5 minutes from the action but feel quite secluded. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with spices, condiments, oils, flour, etc, so grocery purchases can be limited to main ingredients, a very nice touch. New flat screen TVs with Dish in every bedroom, a fabulous whole-house sound system, nice big (and clean!) hot tub, fireplaces inside and out - it's just beautifully put together. Lastly, the staff at the rental agency are extremely accommodating and helpful. We really couldn't ask for more, and I know we'll stay here again.

We were very happy with everything about this home. The home is beautifully decorated, intelligently outfitted with high end sound system, heating, appliances, furniture, ect. The location has a wonderful view of the mountain and is conveniently located close to moonlight basin and big sky. The ski out is easy with a little direction, however the ski in is do able but requires more effort to find the house. We stayed here for a ski vacation with our two teen age sons and actually enjoyed cooking in, and all the amenities of the home. The house was completely outfitted with everything and there was backup of all necessities. No expense spared. Very happy renting this home and the management company was very easy and accommodating.

My family and several of my son's friends stayed at the Swiss Bear Chalet 12-27 thru 1-4-14. There were 11 of us total and we could not have picked a better place to spend our vacation. The home was warm, cozy, offered spectacular views and well stocked with all we needed for our group. Our group consisted of skiers and snowboarders and we were all able to ski in and out during our stay. However we took full advantage of the free shuttle that was provided to us and was promptly picked up and returned at the end of the day. The home was BEAUTIFUL with not a detail overlooked. The location was quiet and just a 5 minute car ride to Moonlight or Big Sky. At one point my sister-in-law said, " I feel like I live here!" Our group enjoyed downhill and cross country skiing. We cross country skied at Lone Mountain Ranch which was superb. We also spent a day snow shoeing at the Ranch. The dinners and lunches at the Ranch are the best! Our other favorite is Buck's T4. Can't be beat! Thank you to the owners of this beautiful property for sharing it with our family.
