Saddle Ridge H2, also known as the Bear's Lair Chalet, sits on the slope with true ski-in/ski-out access and unbeatable Lone Peak Views!!  This luxury slopeside Saddle Ridge has rustic hardwood floors, granite counters and stainless steel appliances, plenty of seating in the living room along with outdoor seating and a gas grill on the deck. With TV's in every room, a king bed in the master suite, and a private outdoor hot tub with some of the best views in all of Big Sky, the Bear's Lair Chalet is the place to be for your home away from home.

Jump on the slopes on a Powder Day from this mid-mountain location and beat everyone that is boarding a lift from the base areas. More fresh powder for you!!

Enjoy an afternoon or evening soak in the slope side hot tub as you enjoy a beverage of your choice and just relax with friends or family. 

This 3 bedroom unit has a master suite on the top level with king bed, flat screen TV, and private bath. There is also a twin sleeping loft in the master bedroom, perfect for a child that wants to be near mom and dad or for an additional twin bed for those that need an extra bed.  Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both located on the lower level with a full bath on the hallway.

Beautiful Place! We loved staying this beautiful condo in Big Sky. We love the area. Condo is beautifully appointed, with gorgeous views and convenient to everything. Hosts are very easy to communicate with and very kind. Highly recommend.

Mountain Escape! We had a great stay in this townhome for our last week of online schooling. We loved exploring the trails around Moonlight Basin. The Village is a short 5 minute ride from the home to pick up groceries and dining and of course the ride on 6-Shooter to the top. The home is well furnished with kitchen supplies which is unsual for rentals. We look forward to renting from Acra again!!

Amazing Stay! We had the best stay in your condo!! It was complete with everything we needed and more. It made us feel right at home. Thank you so much for making the condo so welcoming and equipped with all essentials. The convenient access to the slopes and location in a beautiful village of condos made it spectacular. The hot tub was fabulous after a long day on the slopes! We had the best time in Big Sky and your condo made it our best ski vacation yet. We will definitely be back in the future!

Great condo! We enjoyed our stay, very nice condo, plenty of room for our party of 4. We will definitely consider staying again for a ski trip.

I'd go back.... Our family stayed here late July for a conference held at the main resort in Big Sky. By road the condo is just up the mountain in Moonlight Basin which I found to be a nicer area than around the resort headquarters. It is still part of the resort at large, and I walked and rode bike easily down to the resort center from the condo on trails that are skiable in winter. The condo is definitely SKI IN SKI OUT.. I would love to come back in winter and stay. Lay out is master on 3rd level, main living on mid level, and 2 bedrooms downstairs level where there is also a hot tub with mountain views just outside. Good grill to use.. We paid for the optional Moonlight Club and the kids used the pool at the close-by clubhouse daily. If it's summer, definitely go to the lake where you can use kayaks, PB's or sign up for horseback riding, MB rental, archery class, etc. Check in was easy and owners were too.

Everything and more! This property was everything we expected and so much more. Beautiful home, very clean and perfect for our family vacation. Perfect location right next to Big Sky resort! The management was excellent and provided all the information needed in order for an easy check-in and smooth check-out!

Perfect location with outstanding appointments Very comfortable beds, spacious living area. Kitchen well appointed for cooking full meals. Great hot tub for several people, much appreciated after a long day of skiing. Much better than other condos I've stayed in. Easy access to both Moonlight Basin and Mountain Village areas. Best to purchase lift pass day before (after 2pm) skiing if you plan to go to Mountain Village. Pony Express lift provides unticketed access to Moonlight Basin. Highly recommend picking up groceries in Bozeman when leaving airport, local groceries are quite pricey. Will be back!

Lovely experience Wow, what can I say, it was a beautiful condo in a great location. We were able to ski out and back without difficulty. The best equipped condo we have ever stayed in over 40 years of ski trips...wonderful pots and pans for the few meals we ended up cooking there, more wine glasses/dishes/ casseroles than we needed, very well equipped. Acra was a wonderful host, very helpful with any question we had, A lovely getaway..,

Big Sky is a fabulous place to be in August! We had THE BEST TIME!!! Moonlight Basin is a great respite from the many summer activities of Big Sky and the surrounding area. The Bears Lair was such a welcoming retreat, it was nicely decorated in a Montana decor, very clean and had every cooking utensil and wine glass you could need. The kitchen was spotless with detergent and Dawn for clean up. The bathrooms also were very clean with fluffy white towels and hotel style soaps. All of the luxuries we expect - wifi, cable, ESPN, a laundry room with supplies, and a nice clean Weber grill. The hot tub was so relaxing and the silence on the mountain is just breathtaking. The stars and the view of Loan Peak, I could have sat all day and night and just looked out at the mountain. This Saddle Ridge in Moonlight Basin offers families many activities associated with the Moonlight Club. The restaurant at Moonlight Club is so convenient, the pool and spa fabulous but the gem is Ulery's Lake. One afternoon we took our daughter to Ulery's Lake to paddle board. Wow such serenity. There were only a couple of other guests on the whole lake! We have great pictures of her with a snow capped Lone Mountain in the background and water lilies surrounding the edge of the lake. Just special! The best part of this trip was the extensive knowledge of Big Sky, Yellowstone and Montana that the owner was able to provide our family. This is really the best place to stay to see Yellowstone; one hour's drive to the West Entrance. The owner also gave us route suggestions on when and where to see the big animals - she was right! The owner is very professional with quick email responses and was super helpful. We flew into Bozeman and drove into Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. She helped us with directions and suggestions on how to start our vacation! She understood the area and what a family with a child would be interested in seeing and how much time a pre-teen would stay interested. She was able to give us great info of how to navigate Yellowstone. She also set us up with Horseback riding at Jake's, and gave us thoughtful information on restaurants and grocery stores in the area. We LOVE the Hungry Moose, BTW! I can only imagine what this ski-in ski-out would be like during ski season! Best vacation ever! We can't wait to come back!

Thank you so much for setting up The Bears Lair Chalet for us. The location was perfect and convenient to everything. We got a ton in (fishing, hiking, golfing & the music festival) during our visit.

Awesome getaway! The Bears Lair was super comfortable and well stocked. We loved the new hardwood floors! Our favorite part was the spectacular views of Lone Peak, both from the balcony and the Hot tub ------- especially at 10pm at night when it is still light out. Acra was great to work with. We will be back! 5 Stars.

Thank you so much for renting from us! We love the sunrise over the mountain as well. Absolutely breathtaking! We are happy that you took advantage of the true ski-in/ski-out and enjoyed some great family time! We would love to have you back again in the future. Sincerely, Acra and Chris
We had a fantastic trip to Big Sky. Acra and Chris were excellent hosts, and we are glad we chose this place. Everything was exactly as described, and the place was in great condition. The place was very clean and it was so helpful that they provided linens, towels, and other essentials. Acra and Chris were very easy to communicate with, and they were always eager to offer advice and answer questions. The condo's location made it easy for everyone to enjoy their trip the way they wanted to. It was a true ski in/ski out with easy access to the mountain. The view from the balcony was phenomenal - waking up the Big Sky sunrise over the mountain never got old. There was plenty of room for storage and more than enough room to hangout with the family after a great day of skiing. Having the hot tub was also another great thing to come home to after carving through powder all day. If we were to do another trip to Big Sky, we would definitely stay here again.
