We had a wonderful time at The Grizzly Den. It was perfect for our 4 families with ages 8 to 69. One of the best ski-in/ski-out locations we have rented. It was very easy for everyone to ski from the front door to the Madison base and back again at the end of the day. The hot tub was very nice and we took advantage of it at the end of every day. The welcome basket was a nice touch and we enjoyed it very much. We watched the sunrise every morning from the enormous windows with the incredible views of Big Sky. We have stayed on the Big Sky side several times but we are now in love with the Moonlight side and dont plan to stay anywhere else in the future. We would recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect place for a family ski trip. Our only suggestion is, we would love to have little plaques or a chart identifying all the animals and their origin. Just for fun, we picked a spirit animal for each member of our family and took their picture with it before we left.

Thank you again for your friendliness, kindness, and assistance with our Big Sky Vacation. We celebrated our 50th birthdays with a group of four other couples who had never experienced Big Sky. They were completely overwhelmed to say the least. The snow was epic! The Grizzly Den was perfect for 5 couples; offering plenty of room to spread out when needed. The views are amazing! The kitchen was very well equipped with everything needed. Some times, it is even the little things which matter .... trash bags, ziploc bags, toilet paper, firewood, paper towels, etc. The Grizzly Den as well as other Saddle Ridge/Moonlight Rentals we have stayed at in the past through Acra and Chris have always been very well equipped. They always go above and beyond the normal with their assistance to restaurants, mountain information, off-mountain information, and anything else someone planning a trip to Big Sky might have questions about. This was our 4th or 5th trip to Big Sky ... each of which we are happy to say Acra has assisted with. Any downside to this most recent trip? The Grizzly Den? Honestly, we cannot think of anything. What did our trip look like ... Day 1 was travel, Blue Moon Bakery pizza for dinner, and some evening beverages around the fireplace. Day 2 was a full day of snowmobiling Yellowstone, dinner at Riverhouse on the way home, and some late night drinks/conversation at the house. Day 3 involved skiing (ski-in / ski-out was great), dog sledding, and Montana Dinner Yurt. Day 4 involved skiing, lunch at Montana Jack's at the base, and a lovely dinner at The Grizzly Den followed by game night. Day 5 was more snowmobiling, snow coach touring, and exploring ... with a nightcap of drinks and hot tub. Day 6 was travel day back home. Until next time Lone are absolutely beautiful! Thank you again Acra and Chris ... professional and friendly.

The Grizzly Den was a perfect fit for our family of 10. It was so well equipped with everything we needed, including lots of extra paper products which we really appreciated! The unobstructed view was incredible and we loved watching the sun set over the mountains. The location was perfect as well and we enjoyed being able to ski in and out. Overall, this home was part of the reason we had such a wonderful vacation at Big Sky and we highly recommend the home! Working with the management company was a wonderful experience as well. They were so helpful, very responsive and insured that our stay was perfect!

Great spot and location! Perfect house for two families. Great family space, hot tub nicely located, true ski-in / ski-out (very easy on groomed trails). The property owners/managers are fantastic. Very helpful during the stay. House well appointed on arrival. No complaints and would rent again in a heartbeat. And the skiing is unparalleled

Beauty and All the Creature Comforts in Rugged Montana -- Wow is all I can say! Big Sky, Yellowstone, Jakes Horses, Montana Whitewater Rafting, the Moonlight Basin resort..... just to name a few all amazing!! The only thing that topped this off was staying at this fantastic property! I am a clean freak and this house was very well maintained, kudos to cleaning crew they do a great job! We were a group of 4 adults and 3 kids and the townhouse was large enough for everyone to have their own space. And the views..... literally mesmerizing!! I never needed to reach out to Acra the property manager because everything was so well appointed. We appreciated the personalized card and snacks at check in as well! The Moonlight Basin property is beautiful, plenty of world class hiking even on property. I would definitely recommend this property, we loved it so much we are thinking of returning this winter! Thank you for a truly memorable vacation!!!

Wonderful place, steps from ski trails We stayed here for a week (family of four) and loved it. Ski in, ski out. With kids you can really take advantage of the convenience. House had all the modern amenities but with old western charm throughout. Don't book anything in Feb 2020 though... We need it open for us again. :)

We had a great time. Great ski in/ski out and easy access to both Madison Basin and Big Sky sides of the resort. We stayed with 2 families (4 adults, 5 kids) and had plenty of space.

I arrange a ski trip every year with the same group of friends since 2000. I fell in love with Big Sky years ago but really prefer the accommodating feel of Moonlight Basin. The Grizzly Den was a great find! Perched on a well-groomed cat track looking out towards Big Sky and the Spanish Peaks, it couldn't be in a more idyllic location. Inside, a copper, wood, and leather create an soothing Western atmosphere that was a pure pleasure to wake up to on a spring morning or retire to after a great day in the chutes and trees. We cooked most mornings and many of our evenings there which I really enjoyed as the kitchen is much better than my own back in Maine. Acra left us a nice gift basket and had everything all ready to go. It is a very hassle-free place to check in and check out of and to ski in and out of. Anyways, another great week with amazing friends in a stunning chalet amongst the charm of Moonlight Basin.

The Grizzly Den far exceeded our expectations! The home is warm and inviting with a gourmet kitchen, comfortable beds and amazing views. We are a family of five and had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The hot tub was a favorite of the kids, and the perfect way to relax after a long day on the slopes. 8" of Christmas Eve snow was the icing on the cake. We will be back!!
