Moonlight Mountain Home| 8 Happy Trails

Charming, Ski Accessible Home with Private Hot Tub and Great Views

Due to high visitation and staffing constraints, local area offerings such as restaurants, bars, shopping, and shared amenities may have limited hours or availability. Cell phone and internet service may also be impacted during high visitation periods. Please contact us directly to discuss the impact during your stay dates.

Please be advised, during both Early and Late Ski Season, ski access will be limited or unavailable from the home. Please check Big Sky Resort for ski lift closure details.

This 3-bedroom, 4.5-bath house is a ski accessible escape nestled on the wooded grounds of Moonlight Basin. Hardwood beams, vaulted ceilings, log furniture and mountain decor evoke the feeling of a classic ski lodge, while a gourmet kitchen, spacious bedrooms, and cozy living spaces makes this 2,600 square-foot residence feel like home.

A two-story great room features two full-length sofas and a comfy armchair framing a wood-burning fireplace and large flat-screen TV for relaxing nights in, while a formal 8-seat dining table, set beneath an impressive cast-iron chandelier, allows families to gather around a home-cooked meal. With granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, the kitchen is sure to inspire the family chef. Three seats at the breakfast bar provide additional seating or a separate kids’ area. Floor-to-ceiling windows reveal sweeping mountain views from a private wrap-around deck, which also features a four-seat table and chairs, gas grill, and private hot tub.

The spacious primary suite offers views of its own with a private balcony overlooking mountains and towering pine trees. In addition to a king-sized bed, this room features a plush loveseat facing a gas fireplace, a flat-screen TV, and an en-suite bathroom with a soaker tub and separate shower. Two additional bedrooms are on the first floor, both featuring queen-sized beds and private bathrooms.

A third-floor loft features two additional twin beds plus an additional trundle bed to comfortably sleep 10 total guests, as well as a full-length sofa, desk, flat-screen TV and private bath.

From the main-level ski room, a private staircase leads to a groomed access trail for convenient ski access to Moonlight Basin or Big Sky Resort, giving each guest the freedom to hit the slopes, break for lunch, or start apres-ski at their leisure. A private washer and dryer ensures every day can start with dry clothes.

This home does not have air conditioning.

Beyond the slopes, a one-car garage gives you the freedom to explore the shops, dining and entertainment in downtown Big Sky, a 5-10 minute drive away. In the summer, soak in the mountain views and hit the trails for hiking and biking, or test your high-altitude driving distance at the nearby Big Sky Golf Course.

With its charm, modern amenities, and ski access, 8 Happy Trails Home offers an ideal escape for guests seeking a private mountain retreat with world-class terrain.

*Early and late season ski-in/ski-out access is condition dependent and may vary throughout your stay

We loved our stay in Big Sky. The house was just like the pictures, beautiful. The location was perfect and close to everything. We had 4 adults and 4 kids, plenty of room for everyone. There were a few minor things that needed fixed but we made one call and everyone at Natural Retreats was friendly and responsive. They were all customer focused and wanted to make sure our family was comfortable. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic experience, from the convenience and quality of the rental car, to the accomodations, it was just perfect. Thank y'all greatly.

Hi there. Generally speaking, the home was clean and well maintained. But rentals get weathered. This home was definitely getting tired looking. Also, Natural Retreats is one of the few options for rentals. So I just got the house that was available to me given timing and budget. It was a comfortable home and a convenient location. It was fairly typical rental experience.

Loved working with NR at Big Sky! My only thing is due to COVID there were many restrictions that they weren't able to help with and made it a little challenging. But overall really appreciate them working with us and the guys loved their stay!

Once we figured out which phone number to call for the concierge our vacation was instantly elevated to nearly problem free! The staff was honest and open about what could and couldn't be accessed during Covid. We received great recommendations for hikes, tours, rental equipment, and bear sightings! They were cheerful, upbeat and laughed at bad jokes.

The house was truly amazing and was fully stocked with anything we needed. We had spectacular views of the mountains.

Excellent fast communication,easy check in and departure. Beautiful home, exactly as advertised; great hot tub, plenty of fireplace wood, awesome that we did not have to strip beds and start laundry or do dishes (which we did and put away) but the fact that there were not rules for check out except leave key in lockbox were so much appreciated since we were leaving early. Ten stars for that alone. We are always respectful and take care of any airbnb or vrbo home but plan to always use Natural Retreats in the future for your concern to make cure your guests are fully comfortable and checking in and especially no hassle check out (just leave the key) puts you guys as NUMBER ONE!!! THANK YOU
