Panoramic, postcard views of the Spanish Peaks and Lone Mountain in every direction, and the serene, wooded highland surroundings provide the perfect backdrop any time of year here for your Big Sky adventures. This private, ski-in/ski-out, Montana dream home is situated on a spacious lot high atop the Moonlight slopes in the neighborhood of the Challenger lift.  Live the VIP life at elevation!  Ideal for huge (or multiple) families, larger groups, or 5-6 vacationing couples, this 4,500 sq. foot chateau has plenty of well-appointed space to gather, or spread out, in style.  Grand and luxurious, yet cozy and rustic, pinch yourself this place is real.  Soak in the alpenglow while relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, or catch a sublime sunset over the peak as you kick back on the vast deck.  Take it all in.  Beautifully secluded but still close enough to all the action, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, this majestic alpine retreat makes an inspired starting point for wherever the day takes you!

True ski-in/ski-out, great amenities (large ski/boot room, boot warmer, kitchen, game room, TVs, etc.). Plenty of room for our 3-generation family of 11. Everyone talked about wanting to return next year!

Amazing property, even better than the pictures! Large spaces, tasteful furnishings, plenty of linens, well stocked kitchen, TVs all around with DirecTV, gaming console, board games, card table, foosball table, etc., big two car garage, snowshoes, inflatable tube to sled downhill, great deck/hot tub area, mud/ski room with full washer/dryer. There were 10 of us all together (2 Families, 4 adults and 6 kids ages 8-17) and could not have had a better place in which to enjoy our ski vacation. Ski out access is literally 1 step off the mud room in a groomed trail that leads down to Pony Express. Ski in access is also easy once you orient yourself on the mountain (Ski down Blue Moon Run and stay on your left hand side as if you were going down to MoonlightLodge/Iron Horse, you will see the first house in the Diamond Hitch development on your right (the one with 2 DirecTV antennas, make a right turn before that house. Follow the groomed flatish trail down to a fork and stay on your left hand side for the Diamond Hitch Run (the right hand side is the Twin Tunnels run) if you see a Pirate Flag on your right side marking one of the homes you are on the right track. A couple of hundred feet below you will literally come to a place where you "cross the street (Diamond Hitch Road)" there was plenty of snow so you could ski through it. Immediately after crossing the street, make a right before the first trees parallel to the street until the trail makes a left on its own and you will immediately see the mud room on your right). Again once you do it once, its very easy. All in all a fantastic time. Will definitely come back!

TripAdvisor Review: Amazing Property! I am one of 13 guests who stayed in this house and we were all very comfortable. The house was amazing and what an incredible view. The deck out back is great for relaxing after a day of hiking and the hot tub helps with the sore bones. The property is also fully stocked with dinnerware, pots, pans, etc. that make it easy to prepare meals if you don't want to go out. It was a sad day when our vacation time had come to an end, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Robin's Nest.

TripAdvisor Review: Very family oriented, loved by all! I spent months pouring over home listings around Big Sky and settled on Robin's Nest. We had 2 kids (4 & 5) and 11 adults. This 5 bedroom/5 bath home was a perfect fit. The living room is large and the dining room table held 13 people. The large galley style kitchen was easy for many people to work in. The laundry room is also the point where you enter/exit to get your skis/boards on. This was very convenient. Our 4 & 5 yo had no problem skiing out of the house down to the Pony Express. Skiing in is a tad more difficult. Once you do it and know where you are going it is easy to navigate. Due to the type of tickets we purchased we had to redeem them each morning. This was conveniently done at the Moonlight Lodge which is easily accessible from the Pony Express lift. Also the Moonlight base and Big Sky base of the mountain are both easily accessible from the house. Everyone at Book Big Sky was wonderful to work with. They picked us up several times throughout the week we were there. I can't say enough how pleased we were with this home. We loved the wood fire place and used the hot tub everyday! We went to Yellowstone one day and had a terrific time. I would highly recommend this home to groups who have singles and/or children.

TripAdvisor Review: Luxury on the Slopes The house was perfect for our group of 13. The kitchen was large and well laid out for multiple cooks making enough to feed the hungry crowd. The rooms had comfortable beds and the supplied spa style bathrobes were a nice touch and perfect for trips to the outdoor hot tub. Skiing out was easy, but back in took some map reading skills. This is a mountain issue, not the rental home, but just letting you know. The radiant floor heating system kept every one toasty. It took a little trial and error to figure out what thermostat controlled which room. The Management company was very responsive to any requests or needs and aimed to make our stay memorable, it was. The views from the rental were gorgeous! It was only a short drive to the new wholefoods market and a few shops. We did our major shopping near the airport before we drop up and I recommend that. The washer and dryer are new and made keeping up with hot tub towels and ski laundry easy. We used the TV to stream music which was nice. The living room was large with lots of seating and worked well for playing group games. The house was everything we wanted and felt like a 5 star hotel. Of course the great meals we cooked didn't hurt. The mountain is big by my east coast standards and never got boring. We had two children under 6 with us and they were able to ski in/out with us so this is a family friendly rental. You will love this home for a large group.

TripAdvisor Review: Amazing views, amazing property- We had the pleasure of staying at this house for 5 days with my wife and kids and 2 other couples with kids. The bunk beds down stairs were perfect for all the kids, with plenty of bedrooms for the adults as well. Hot tub out on the deck with unbelievable views of the Spanish peaks awaited us every evening after a long day of skiing. House is super easy to get to from Moonlight or Big Sky ski in and ski out. Foosball table, card table, huge kitchen, huge dining room table. All the furnishings are well maintained and look great. We absolutely cannot wait to stay here again, will be coming back next year for sure.

TripAdvisor Review: Great for Big or Small Groups, and the Ski In/Out is A++. I love this place. I go on 2 trips a year with friends and family and this is one of the best places we have stayed at. The house has a ton of space, comfortable beds, great kitchen, and one of the best views in the West. The Ski in, Ski out is so easy too!

TripAdvisor Review: Awesome in the Summer! This is a palatial home that was obviously constructed to host large groups to enjoy the winter at Big Sky with ski in - ski out convenience. Our visit however was in late June, early July. It is absolutely beautiful there that time of year. I reckoned the elevation at the house to be about 8,600' so it never got more than comfortably warm during the day and just a little chilly at night (windows open and a light blanket was perfect). The stargazing from the hot tub was amazing. Daytime vistas from the deck are inspiring. Two days we made the 1+ hour drive to Yellowstone National Park and another day we drove about twice as far to visit Grand Teton National Park. After our daily photo safaris, we returned to the house and cooked gourmet meals in the fully appointed kitchen (outside gas grill too). Buy your groceries in Bozeman before you drive to Big Sky. FYI, not all the ski season establishments stay open in summer but plenty of them do. Recommend The Cabin which is not far from the house. Lone Peak Brewing is just a bit further and well worth it if you enjoy pub grub and craft beer. Big Sky is a terrific laid back summer destination and this house is an awesome place to stay. All the expected amenities: Comfortable beds and furniture, strong showers/nice towels, fire place, fire sprinklers, satellite TV in several places, internet, DVD, major appliances, even a Foosball table. Our cell phones worked fine which might be good or bad depending on your point of view. We had a blast with this awesome house as our base! I would highly recommend this house to everyone.

TripAdvisor Review: I have stayed at Robin's Nest in the winter and enjoyed the convenient ski in/out but had never experienced the house in summer until now. What a beautiful, quiet setting. Warm sunny days that lingered late into the evening, then cool enough for a crackling fire inside. The hot tub was just right after the sun (finally) went down. Lots of hikes available nearby. Terrific fly fishing right at the base of Lone Mtn Trail (Gallatin River). Just an hour drive to Yellowstone. Robin's Nest is a great summer destination too - highly recommend.

TripAdvisor Review: Do We Really Have To Go Home??? We stayed at Robins Nest over MLK Weekend 2013 with three families traveling together (total of 6 adults and 8 kids). This house was the perfect fit. You can not beat the convenience of the ski-in/ski-out location, and loved the benches and cubbies in the garage to make gearing-up super easy. The house is incredibly well-appointed, cozy, and comfortable. Anything you could possibly need has been thought through and accommodated. In my mind, I am still sitting in the picture window, looking out onto that unbelievable view. My only two comments in terms of improvement: it would be nice if the couch in the basement was a sleeper sofa and the hot tub could use an upgrade. This is the second year in a row that we have rented properties with Big Sky Vacation Rentals, and they never disappoint. Their staff is extremely courteous and ready to assist at any turn. Should we return to Big Sky (God willing!), Bsvr will be our first call and Robins Nest will be top of our list!
