All interactions were wonderful. It was nice to have someone greet us at the property and she was so knowledgeable.
Wonderful home and nicely decorated. Hot tub and boot heater were nice perks. We enjoyed the ski in/ski out access.

Everyone was great, the 1st day we were there a very nice young woman came by and gave us pointers and answered all our questions. They came every day to take the garbage and cleaned off the patio.

Our group had a fantastic time here. The house was really well stocked which made cooking and serving meals for a large group really convenient. Hot tub was fantastic for star gazing and soaking after a day of hiking. While it is located in a cul de sac with neigbors, the location to big sky is great and we saw deer, fox, chimpmunks, birds from the deck as well as beautiful mountain views. Saw a moose in the mountains above while horse back riding. Comfortable beds and seating throughout the house. Management company was very good - kids loved their backpacks! A great stay overall - hope to be back soon!

This house was the perfect place for our families. It had a very homey feel, and our grandchildren had the experience of a fox sitting on the deck every day, which was delightful. The large table gave us the perfect game spot every night. It was very quite and we loved it. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. The two bedrooms up stairs gave you the privacy you needed at night if you were tired and didn't want to enjoy game time. If I am every back up in this part of the US I will surely be staying in this VRBO again!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.-Charlene W, June 2017

This is a fantastic cabin for couples and families. We were able to fully enjoy the experience including the mountains, nature, skiing and Montana. I would rent this cabin again!

This condo is awesome! It comfortably slept our group of 8, was well stocked with toiletries (toilet paper, shampoo, soap, body wash, laundry supplies), and had a wood burning fireplace to boot. For the ski-focused, the location is a dream - ski in and out of the back yard. Given the layout of Big Sky (the town) - definitely bring a car or arrange transportation to get around.

Excellent property - very clean, well-maintained and cozy but not at all cramped. We have used dozens of rental properties over the years and the management company here was clearly the best - super attentive and very helpful.

Our family ski vacation at Big sky and Chief Gull was wonderful. The house was well supplied and had all the amenities we could ask for. The management staff was extremely responsive. The house exceeded our expectations and is a true ski-in ski-out. This property is perfect for families or an adult getaway. I would not hesitate to book this house again.

Our stay at Chief Gull 5 was perfect. Many extra features that made us feel right at home. Great access to the lifts and the trail behind the house was perfect for our grand kids to sled down. I would highly recommend this property.

TripAdvisor Review: A great place to take a family vacation! We stayed here right before Christmas and had a wonderful family vacation. Big Sky is a wonderful vacation destination and Kirsten and her team went out of their way to think of everything so that we wouldn't have to. My children (7and 11) are still talking about how great the vacation it was and asking to go back. When we travel, my family is used to staying at five-star hotels (yes, I've spoiled them, my kids are going to be shocked when they go off to college) and we felt right at home in this cabin. I would highly recommend this cabin or the many others that Kirsten has available. Call her like I did and she'll tell you what's a good fit for you.

TripAdvisor Review: Spacious, clean and very comfortable! Kristen did a great job of making sure everything was well set up prior to our stay, including restaurant recommendations, providing a crib, ideas about a Yellowstone trip and details on where to ski. Our two younger kids shared the room with queen bunks and loved it. Our twelve year old was in the second master and felt like a king. While the house is ski in, ski out, because of different schedules within the family we found it just as quick to drive to the base and use free parking.

TripAdvisor Review: Fantastic vacation! This place was beautiful on the inside. We had 9 people and it never seemed crowded. Once we got the hang of the ski-out we would ride right to our deck. You have to ski a small distance down to the first chair. Master bedrooms were huge and the bathrooms were nice. Kirsten was very accommodating and always helped as soon as we asked. We would go back next year for sure!

TripAdvisor Review: Work getaway: Kirsten was very thorough while checking our group into the home. She also clearly explained how to get to the ski hill and restaurants and let us know what to due when we checked out. The location was great due to the ski-in and ski-out trail right off the back deck. The hot tub is always a nice touch. It was nice having lots of cooking items already in the house; like coffee filters, sugar, spices, garbage bags, as well as games and ipod dock. The best thing about the home was the proximity to the hill and lifts. The couple of things we didn't like were: the dishwasher was not mounted to the cabinets, so it would tip out whenever we loaded it. Also, the rear door would always stick in the frame and upstairs bathroom doors would bind on the floor and it was very difficult to open and close them. Just minor inconveniences and would not stop us from coming back again.

TripAdvisor Review: Convenient ski-in ski-out cabin: This property was great for skiing but would not be as convenient for a summer vacation. The cabin was very comfortable for cooking and serving meals and relaxing. Although there is a garage the owners do not provide an opener which is a problem It would not be safe to park in the street and the driveway is quite steep. We had to walk down the drive after manually closing the door from the inside because it is too narrow to allow getting into the car. Steep and slippery, this wasn't safe either. If you don't use the garage the drive won't be plowed in a slow which could be a problem as well. The owner should reconsider this issue and charge a steep fine for openers that aren't returned if that is the big issue. As you can tell this was a daily problem for us and a damper on the stay.

TripAdvisor Review: Great Log home at Big Sky: Kirsten from Big Sky Vacation Rentals recommended this place and she and her team provided us with exceptional service. The ski in is best for skiers , as there were some flat spots that made it harder for our snow boarders. Ski out was perfect. Kitchen was great for big family dinners and house was well equipped with most everything needed. We will definately rent again from Kirsten.

TripAdvisor Review: Fabulous and easy! We loved our stay in Powder Ridge. My husband and I were traveling with a 14 month old and were meeting my sister, her husband and my father. The house was perfect for a big group and it was really easy to ski in and ski out. Kristen provided a pack n play and high chair during our stay, which was a life saver for us with our young son. We used the Hungry Mouse food delivery system, which was easy and great. We did rent a car, which was a life saver so that we could go to dinner one night and also drove our son to the day care right at the base of the ski resort. Kristen and Kirsten were in full contact with us leading up to the visit to make sure we had all the info. we needed. Kristen visited us once we were in the house to make sure we were all set, which was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend them and will hopefully use them again next year!

TripAdvisor Review: Amazing Place!! I wanted to let you know that we all really enjoyed our time at Big Sky! None of us had ever been there before and we weren't too sure what to expect. We were all blown away by how awesome everything was! It really is the biggest skiing in america! Even though we only caught the big storm before our last day we all still had a great time out on the mountain. Compared to most of the resorts we have been to we felt like we had the place to ourselves! That powder day last Tuesday was such a great way to end the trip! The cabin was incredible. Everything was so nice there, and we had tons of room! We loved being able to put our skis on at the back door and head out and then finish the day skiing right up to the house. The hot tub also felt great after a long day on the slopes. The place could not have worked out better for us! Thank you for bringing more firewood and everything up to the house. Normally we would try out a different resort every year, but we had such a great time at this place we are strongly considering coming back next year!!! Thank you for all the help Kirsten! Curtis
