Sehr freundliche Mitarbeiter, gute Infrastruktur, tolles Frühstücksbuffet (Bratspeck mit Rührei und Kartoffeln, Toast, div. Kuchen und Muffins, Fruchtsalat, Fruchtsäfte, Milch, Tee und Kaffee, Aufzählung nicht abschliessend). Mit rund 75km vom Westeingang liegt die Unterkunft gerade noch im Bereich des Machbaren für Tagestouren in den Yellowstonepark. Die Hoteladresse ist etwas verwirrend, zwar liegt Bucks T-4 Lodge postalisch gesehen in Big Sky, für das GPS (Garmin) muss jedoch Gallatin als Zielort programmiert werden, eventuell Hinweis bei Buchungsbestätigung?
My headboard and the wall vibrates so much and it feels like a washing machine or swimming pool pump never stops. Hotel clerk recommended to move us to another room but just right above our old room. Why will I move, it is still the same wall . We were not able to sleep for 2 nights. This place is 45 minutes drive from Yellowstone entrance, scared to drive at night on a 2 lane highway. I have not seen a highway with lots of cross signs where accidents occured. This place is hard to find if you do not have a GPS device with you. Swimming pool chlorine smells like sulphur and chlorine mix together, as if water was not changed for ages. My own pool never smells like that.
Didn't know what to expect. Delighted to find top notch ski resort hotel. Huge rooms! Elegant lobby. Great service. Good breakfast to start each day. We commuted to Yellowstone via West Yellowstone. We saw nothing in West Yellowstone to compare with Big Sky Lodge.
We stayed at the hotel for a week (first week of september) and had a wonderful time. All 90 rooms have 2 queen beds. The staff and accomadations were very nice. The free breakfast was very convenient and saved us a ton of money. Centrally located 1hr south of Bozeman and 1 hour north of the western enterance to Yellowstone it was the perfect location. Will definately be going back again. The lodge is located in the Big Sky resort area so there were restraunts and plenty of ammenities close by.
The hotel was very nice. My only issue was the directions provided. They left a lot to be desired.
One of the best family vacations we have been on. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. They gave great suggestions on things to do and places to eat. We usually ski in Colorado for our winter vacation, but this winter we will be at Big Sky.
The staff was friendly but incredibly overworked. We kept seeing the same people working the front desk regardless of what hour of the day we went by. We had already paid extra for a third person in the room, just to cover breakfast and then had to pay more to get another bed in the room. Kind of annoying. Probably would have been better for us to deal with the hotel directly on that issue, but we were trying to avoid having to make a lot of phone calls to different hotels. Continental breakfast was adequate. One of the folks at the front desk gave my sister incredibly pessimistic driving instructions from another town in Montana that was about 3 times as long as what it really takes. I don't think everyone working there had a good familiarity with the area to be helpful.
Took my two sons fly fishing in MT and stayed at the Lodge at Big Sky. We had a blast and really enjoyed our stay.
I spend a lot of time in Montana and own property in Montana. This hotel is a real sleeper for people who want a very homey quiet place extremely close to the slopes( walking distance) with all the comforts of the big name hotels but without the price and pressure. Family friendly with two game rooms, one video games and for those parents who do not approve video games they have an additional room with ping pong, pool table and hockey games. 4 separate hot tubs and an indoor pool and exercise room- high speed connections in all the rooms- free local calls and wifi in the beautiful lobby. My only concern is they will get so much business rooms will not be available for me when I need them. Lovely stay Also complimentary breakfast and a nice little bar for apres ski and evening.
We had a great time staying here. Beautiful setting..great hotel staff..nice clean rooms.Wish we could have stayed longer..Definitely recommend.
Overall the experience was very satisfactory. The only real problem was that there was no clerk available at the check-in for over 1/2 hour. Some issues with housekeeping as we had to ask for washcloths on 2 separate occasions.
I stayed at the Lodge at Big Sky with friends for a ski trip and had an excellent experience. First off, the location is great, about a 5 minute walk to the lifts or a very quick shuttle ride if you'd rather not walk in ski boots. The rooms are very fairly basic but large and comfortable with everything you'd need. The lobby area is beautiful with fireplace, comfy chairs, and a small bar. There's a few hot tubs, both indoor and outdoor which feels great after a day of skiing. The staff is very accomodating and create a nice atmosphere in the lobby with games for families and on Friday nights, they grill up burgers and hot dogs on the back patio. Overall, an excellent experience and great value for the money! One of the best kept secrets in Big Sky.
The first thing that stood out at Lone Mountain Ranch was the attention of the staff at all levels to providing an outstanding guest experience. Planned activities were not contingent on having a minimum number of guests sign up. When I was the only guest who chose a canoeing outing we went anyway. Mountain biking was scheduled only a couple of times during the week but when I asked about additional opportunities they made sure I had a guide available each day that I wanted to ride. We had to leave before breakfast on our last day and the restaurant staff worked out a way to provide breakfast for us. These are only a few examples of their commitment to guest satisfaction. The naturalists on their staff accompanied guests on outings to Yellowstone, wildflower hikes and other activities. They all demonstrated an impressive knowledge of the flora, fauna and geology of the area. The food in the restaurant was outstanding with few exceptions and the staff were empowered to make things right when there were problems. The menus offered something for almost everybody, though vegetarian options were not abundant. I suspect that the kitchen could find ways to offer acceptable vegetarian options but this is a ranch, not a spa, and the menu was obviously designed to please omnivores. I am not a horseman but my wife, who is, was impressed with both the horses and the wranglers. I described the ranch as "all inclusive" but that is not completely correct. Alcohol is an extra charge. All of the other food and beverages for the week were included in their standard rates. Some of the off-ranch excursions do have associated charges but they have a surprising array of options included in the standard rate. This is a "guest ranch" (dude ranch) so it cannot be compared to a 5 star hotel but even so the cabin we were in was a bit of a disappointment partly because it was hard to get the room temperature well regulated and partly because some of the recent renovation left a few problems including a front door that did not latch properly. The cabin did not have a table or desk for writing or for computer use. The other disappointment was that the WiFi availability was poor due to weak signals (we never did find a place at the ranch with a strong WiFi signal) and rather erratic access to the Internet. Cell service depended on location. Sometimes it was good, other times there was no signal. That is not at all unexpected in a rural setting.
