My wife and I are planning our annual ski road trip from the cornfields of MN to the beautiful mountains of SW MT. However, we are running into a couple booking issues.
We usually rent a cabin somewhere during the trip. We love the privacy of cabins, the experience, and the quiet of no shared walls. The last couple years we've stayed north of Big Sky around Gallatin Gateway, usually in the canyon off of 191. We always drive from MN so we will have a vehicle with us so distance isn’t much of an issue.
This year we'd like to rent a cabin/condo closer to Big Sky. It usually took us 40-60 min to drive from Gallatin Gateway to Big Sky, we want to try something different this year, and stay closer to the mountain. I've been hammering VBRO and other rental sites but haven’t had much luck finding anything that fits us. We are two serious skiing adults who don’t need a huge place (1 bdrm is ideal) but like to cook/prepare our own meals. Most of the stuff available is 3+ bedroom and over $1400 for the week, which is pretty steep for lodging for two people for a week.
Does anyone know of any places for rent, a bit off the beaten path, that we should look into? I don’t mind it being at the base of the mountain or near the entrance of Lone Mountain Trail, we just want to be a bit closer to Lone Peak and find a nice, private, affordable rental. We aren’t really interested in renting in one of the huge condo/hotel buildings, just looking for a affordable, private, quiet rental.
Any pointers/help would be really appreciated.
