About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Gather your family or closest friends and get ready to have a trip you won't soon forget! Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, our family home is the perfect gathering spot for a mountain vacation. Equally fabulous in the summer or winter, spend your vacation skiing or snowboarding the 'Biggest Skiing in America', snowmobiling out the front door, or navigating the rapids while white water rafting in the beautiful Montana rivers used to film such feature films as 'The River Runs Through It.' While we can't guarantee a run-in with Brad Pitt, we are confident Montana's beauty will leave you wanting more. Experience all the nearby activities Big Sky has to offer, from horseback riding to fly fishing to snowmobiling or 4-wheeling Buck's Peak, mere yards from the front door. Check out the diverse restaurants, shopping and other entertainment in Meadow and Mountain Villages or take a day trip to nearby Yellowstone National Park. Our family friendly home is ideal for large groups or several families or friends to stay together while enjoying our spacious rooms, or hot tub on our deck with a view of the mountains that can't be beat! This home is perfect for a group of snowmobiliers too, with a huge lot, drive through driveway, and right next to some of the best sledding this side of the Rockies!

About Anna Martinson

We're a brother and sister who own this house together with our families. We're from Minnesota, but loved coming to Big Sky so much, we decided to buy a vacation home here.

Anna Martinson purchased this house in 2009

Why Anna Martinson chose Gallatin Gateway

We were looking for a vacation home that had an airport close by, snowmobiling or 4-wheeling right from the doorstep, world class skiing and snowboarding, and a number of other activities to keep our family members busy, such as fly fishing, white water rafting, horseback riding, biking and hiking. The views are amazing, and the access to a wide variety of restaurants, shopping and leisure activities is excellent.

What makes this house unique

Snowmobile right from the front door without need to further trailer (snow conditions permitting). We are centrally located about 45 minutes from Bozeman on one end and 45 minutes from West Yellowstone National Park. We are about 15 minutes from Big Sky Ski Lodge. Transportation is available to and from the mountain.

Great vacation rental.

Great property, plenty of room for two couples with 2 toddlers and 2 teens to spread out and relax. Beautiful view and we got to see elk almost every morning from the house. Very clean, and organized.

Very Spacious and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Our daughter was married at the Rainbow Ranch (a five minute drive up the road) on December 16th, and this was a great place for our extended family (8 people) to stay. The living room and kitchen were perfect for us to gather as a family and everyone was able to find a bedroom to meet their needs. This house is also great in the winter because it is close enough to the main road that you wont get trapped. The roads were icy, but we had no trouble getting to or from the house. Also, the kitchen is well equipped, but because we were so busy with wedding preparations, we never cooked. We went to Gourmet Gals in Big Sky and picked up pre-cooked meals. All we had to do was pop them in the oven. We had a fabulous french toast casserole and an egg casserole for the morning and white bean chicken chili for dinner. We also ordered the pull pork sandwiches for lunch. The meals were wonderful. It was pricey, but worth it for the ease. Perfect vacation...A warm cabin with a big fire place, a winter wonderland outside, and home cooked meals ready to warm up for a large group. Loved it all! Winter in Montana is magic, and a beautiful time to get married.

Lots of space and great location!

  • 5 of 5

House is well kept and has easy access from main road. Close to restaurants and has all the amenities to cook yourself. West Yellowstone is only 45 min away, which is perfect for day trips into Yellowstone. Jacuzzi outside was also a plus to watch the stars at night. the house is very large with plenty of room, way too much room for just my wife and myself. We never really ventured upstairs. Would highly recommend this house.
