Hunker down in that quintessential Montana abode — a cabin in the woods. With hand-hewn logs, river rock fireplaces and private hot tubs on the deck, these three-, four- and five-bedroom stand-alone cabins are exactly what you’d expect from a family vacation in the mountains. Powder Ridge cabins are all lift accessible to the mountain.

We stayed for 7 nights in the Rosebud 5 (4BR/3BA). We tried to find out the exact bedding arrangement prior to our stay but the resort was unfortunately unable to confirm. This was tricky with our family of 6 adults in terms of planning so I will describe the layout briefly.. 2nd floor King Master with spacious bathroom (double sinks); full size (BR 2) and full size bunks(BR3) on main level with full bath and lover level with King, living room and full bath (BR4). Updated kitchen and bathrooms. No A/C but the cabin stayed cool with open windows. Good location near Big Sky center/Lone Mountain activities. Areas that could be improved: pillows are very small and worn down and should be replaced; deck furniture (redwood?) is very uncomfortable which was disappointing when we wanted to sit outside; mid-week cleaning service is basically just towel delivery, linen change and trash removal (wish they would have also wiped down surfaces). Overall this is a great location for Big Sky activities and about a 1 hour drive to the West Yellowstone entrance.
PR Moose Ridge 2 is a great little cabin. For the most part, the property is very clean and comfortable with a good location. It made for a perfect ski vacation for our family of 5. There was enough room for us with kids 22, 20, 16yo. The ski in/out was very convenient. We are all strong skiers, but the trails to and from the cabin would be fine for all abilities. BSVR made our vacation to Big Sky very easy. They were great to work with, the property was as good as we hoped it would be and they looked after a lot of details for us that made the trip painless. They picked up and delivered our ski passes, we shipped some ski gear to and from them and they dropped it off at the cabin. They answered questions and gave good recommendations. We would recommend BSVR and Moose Ridge 2.
