As new owners, we would like to welcome you to Moonlight Basin and promise that we will try to accommodate your needs and do all we can to make your stay in our home enjoyable.

David and Emily Palmer purchased this townhome in 2015

Why David and Emily Palmer chose Saddle Ridge

We live in Hawaii and celebrated Christmas 2014 with our family at Moonlight Basin for a Big Sky ski vacation. It was some of the the most perfect skiing we have ever experienced: stunningly beautiful, fresh powder ski conditions with none of the crowds. Truly! The lift lines were non-existent; it was as if we had reserved the slopes for ourselves. We fell in love with Moonlight Basin and came back this spring to enjoy some hiking, see the end of winter, rebirth of spring, and experience Yellowstone. We fell in love with Moonlight Basin, Big Sky....and here we are! We hope you love it as much as we do.

Unbelievable location

  • 5 of 5

the stay here gave new meaning to my understanding of “ski in ski out”. Ski right out your back door down to the lift for a day on the mountain and when you’re ready to get home, ski right up to your personal hot tub with breathtaking views of Big Sky’s famous Lone Mountain. I’ll never go back to Colorado after experiencing Montana in this beautiful rental. 12 out of 10 stars

Perfect ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our 2 families of 4! It was clean, well-stocked and organized. The private hot tub after a day skiing was perfect and it is a true ski-in/ski-out condo. Highly recommend!

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We just left and I couldn't wait to leave a review. The condo was fantastic! We were 2 families. It was large enough that we never felt crowded. The condo is well stocked with everything we needed. Emily is the best host we have ever had. She was easy to communicate with and very responsive. The ski in ski out couldn't have been more perfect! We opted to pay the moonlight lodge fee and felt it was worth it. We took an afternoon off from skiing and went to Ulerys Lake (part of the lodge fee) . They have a yurt at the lake with a sledding hill that was fun, fat tire bikes, snow shoes and cross country skis for you to use around the lake trail.... at no extra charge. We all had so much fun there. I honestly can't say enough good things about the condo and Emily. We are planning on going back next year! We wanted to cry when we had to leave this morning.

Perfect cabin for a Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin right next to the lift. We really enjoyed the ski in/ ski out capabilities. Having a cabin so close to the ski runs made it easy to pop in for a cheap lunch and then get right back out on the slopes. Also not having to drive in the snow everyday alleviated a lot of stress for us Texans. The place was very clean, and there is plenty of storage for ski gear in the front room. Sitting by the fire or in the hot tub after a long day of skiing was very relaxing and just what we needed when we were sore. We had a large group of 8 people and all were able to sleep comfortably with a bed for everyone. I would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative, and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Big Sky.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a home for a vacation. We were a bit skeptical about turning loose of money to someone we did not know and then wondering if the accommodations would be as advertised. What a great experience we had. Great communication from the owner from the time we booked to the time we arrived and departed. The property was fantastic and was very clean and well appointed, as described. The view was incredible. Although we weren't there for snow skiing, the place suited our family of 5 and traveling to and from West Yellowstone National Park was easy, depending on traffic 45 minutes to an hour.

Three bedrooms each offering its own bathroom provided the opportunity for a quick exit each morning with no wait.

The evenings were nice to have dinner in the kitchen or on the deck with table and chairs, and BBQ Grill. One morning we even utilized the crockpot so that dinner was waiting upon our return.

We would definitely recommend this property and would definitely stay here again. A big thank you to the property owners for making our vacation a great memory. Highly recommend to anyone,
