This is a wonderful place for a large group to enjoy the Big Sky area. Everything worked. The kitchen had all the pots and pans needed. There were plenty of towels. The hot tub was clean and ready to go.
We really enjoyed the ski in/ski out location.

It was very easy to make the reservation and the place was perfect for our group. Needed help with how to light fire pit- she came inside 20 minutes
Beautiful place. Well appointed - kitchen, bathrooms. Comfortable gathering spaces. 10 of us were very comfortable. ''Tis a little tricky finding it but their directions were excellent. GPS doesn't work.

Great property for our family vacation! Had everything we needed for 8 adults and 5 kids. The house was very clean, well stocked and had everything we needed for cooking dinners, etc. Check-in was a breeze and any questions we had were answered promptly. I called for more propane after we ran out and someone was there within 15 minutes w a new tank. Highly recommend! We also saw a fox and elk from the deck! I'd say the only slight negative is that you're a little close to other properties but we really only noticed it when trying to look at the stars at night bc of the lights coming off the houses. We all really enjoyed our stay!!!

This was a great retreat for our family. We had 14 people and felt like we had plenty of room. Th house was professionally decorated and felt very high-end. The host was very helpful and came and gave us an introduction to the house and the area when we arrived. I would stay here again!

We had a great time in Big Sky and having the house as our base was perfect. There were 16 of us ranging in ages from 66 to 4, and everyone had there own space and were very comfortable. The outside fireplace on the deck was fabulous, and the teenagers used the hot tub every night. We will definitely book through Big Sky Vacation Rental again.

They are very reliable, informative and provided us more than what was disclosed during reservation. Thanks to you ALL.
Thank you so much Big Sky Rentals for the beautiful and spacious Manitou 13 home. It was just perfect for our big group, family of 4. We couldn't ask for more. Great home.

We were a large family of 16 -- 5 siblings and spouses with a number of nieces and nephews and our parents - a range of ages from 12 to 87! The house and location are even more beautiful than the pictures and suited our diverse family needs very well . The house has everything you would need -- the kitchen was super well stocked with every pot and pan you need -- and we like to cook so that was very important. According to my wife and her sisters in law the house was impeccably decorated and the bathrooms had everything they needed. Bedrooms were spacious and the beds were super comfortable. Lots of other amenities including a hot tub and an indoor fireplace (which we used with the well stocked wood) and incredible scenery from every room and from the large deck which included an outdoor gas fireplace. We had come from a family wedding in Butte and being from the east coast and not ever having been to Montana we wanted to find a place in the mountains where we could hike and get easy access to Yellowstone -- Big Sky fit our needs exactly. Beautiful, quiet, great hiking within minutes of the house and Yellowstone about an hour away! Communication with the property management company was super and they arrived to give us a quick overview within minutes of our arrival-- they give you a keyless entry code to get into the house when you arrive. We stocked up on groceries in Bozeman at the local Costco which was a smart move as the local grocery store in Big Sky is nice but pricey. They even gave us a box of Montana made caramels which everyone loved and was a nice extra touch. We will be coming back!

This is one of the finest rental property experiences I've had! Arrival and departure were flawless thanks to clear information and early communication from the owner. The property itself is spectacular: beautiful home, wonderful mountain views, lots of amenities, and a quiet, private location. The property is in a development of nearly identical properties, but it sits up high in the development, so it does not feel crowded, and offers unimpeded views of the mountain peaks. The house itself sets up perfectly for a multi-family vacation home, with private sleeping and bathing rooms on separate levels. The home looks professionally decorated and furnished, high quality and pitch-perfect for a vacation home, but still family-friendly. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate multiple people prepping meals and feeding kids, and is open to the rest of the house so that nobody feels "stuck in the kitchen". Appliances are top-of-the line, Wolf and Sub Zero. The main level deck wraps two sides of the house, so that you can sit in the sun or the shade, and is perfect for morning coffee, reading, or simply enjoying the mountain views. The gas fire pit is perfect for stretching outdoor time into the cool Montana Summer evenings. As beautiful as the property is, even more impressive about the property (and the owner) is the way little details were superbly considered. For example, on the deck is not just a grill, but a nearly-new Weber gas grill, with an extra tank of propane. Inside the home, the kitchen is superbly stocked with every cooking utensil and appliance we needed- including a large crockpot, coffee grinder, and brand new grill tools. In the bathrooms, showers included stocked dispensers of soap, shampoo, and conditioner. I arranged for two high chairs and a pack-and-play; we arrived to find the high chairs already set up at the dining table, and the pack-and-play set up in one of the bedrooms. Nice attention to detail! Another super-impressive detail was the entertainment setup in the lower level family room. A TV was mounted on the wall with a Wii and DVD player, but this is the best part; it also included a collection of family-friendly movies, and a note that this particular TV was disconnected from the cable TV service, so that little eyes could not accidentally push a wrong button on a remote control and stumble upon something they need not see. Of course, other TVs in the home had full cable access; but that's the kind of thoughtfulness and attention to detail that shows how this property owner is at the top of their game. About mid-week, we needed a fresh tank of propane. I called the office number provided, and it was answered quickly and professionally by a friendly associate who took the time to ask how we were enjoying the property and our time in Big Sky. A fresh tank of propane was delivered to the house quickly and seamlessly. I heartily endorse this property and its owner!

Best Equipped House EVER, and that's not the good part-
We rented six cabins at Powder Ridge from BookBigSky for a family reunion that we hold every other year. We have been all over: Hawaii, Outer Banks, Lake Tahoe, Alaska. We've stayed in some VERY nice places. Our cabin was absolutely the best equipped facility we've ever stayed in. Here are the things we did NOT have to buy, because the house already had enough for a week: toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, shampoo, body wash, trash bags, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, and laundry detergent.. This was on top of an abundance of towels and two bathrooms per room. Better than all this. The views, the deck, the beds, the kitchen, the location. We stayed in summer, so Big Sky was not crowded and the weather was perfect. We enjoyed the area but, more importantly, we really enjoyed the house, inside and out, to spend time with family. This was a spectacular home and BookBigSky.com made it all very easy for us.

Fantastic rustic and spacious cabin in the mountains-
We have stayed at this cabin 4 separate times with family. We find the cabin spacious and the kitchen is always set up with everything you need. This cabin can accommodate a large group, yet everyone can enjoy their own personal space. We love the rustic Montana decor. We have seen more types of wild life sitting at the cabin than we have seen at Yellowstone. We have seen bear, fox, deer, elk, big horn sheep and yes, moose. Staying at this cabin is a true Montana experience. We will definitely stay here again.

Great House for the entire family with wonderful views-
This home is a luxurious getaway for all ages. We've stayed at this property over the years and noticed the owners are always updating. They have added a larger washer and dryer, fire pit with comfortable chairs, new duvets, boot warmers, ski racks, more TV's, robes, Keurig coffeemaker, more kitchen items, larger grill, and key-less entry. It shows that the owners listen to suggestions from the renters. The management has provided unmatched service. We love to visit Yellowstone, Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Lake Hebgen, Virginia and Nevada City on day trips. The most exciting of all is Bear Tooth Pass. We will keep coming back.

A Piece of Heaven-
This gorgeous house is spacious, comfortable and quiet. There is room for everyone to gather together and room for everyone to have their privacy. The views are spectacular and it is close to many great hiking trails. The kitchen is well-stocked and each bedroom feels like its own luxury hotel room. My family and I were able to have adventures during the day and then relax in the outdoor hot tub at night, while taking in the view of the mountains. Sometimes a fox will come by to visit or a deer. My sister even saw a moose. Can't wait to go back!

Beautiful, spacious mountain cabin!
I stayed here with 12 family members and we had plenty of room. It had everything we needed to feel comfortable and at home. I loved the kitchen and the huge deck! The Vacation Rental staff was very responsive, providing us with great service while we were there. This is definitely one of the nicest vacation rentals I've ever visited and I highly recommend it to anyone.
