I would highly recommend this property as well as Big Sky Vacation Rentals (Bsvr). The property is very clean and nice as well as very spacious. We experienced very good service from Bsvr and most definitely rent from them again. We appreciated all of the little touches!

We had a wonderful stay at Little Shadow Catcher in July 2011. We are a family of five that wanted to "go out west". From the very first time I contacted Kirsten she was helpful and friendly. As she is also a mother of three I felt like I had a "girlfriend" with the inside scoop on Big Sky. Every e-mail or phone call was answered promptly, and with all the info I asked for. Her company didn't just rent me a place...they helped our family have a great vacation - suggestions on things to do, places to eat, the best companies to do business with, etc.
As for the house, Little Shadow Catcher, it was fantastic! Spacious, beautifully decorated, and well equipped. I've rented a few homes and have never been given things like laundry detergent, starter soap & shampoo, trash bags, tin foil/plastic wrap, paper towels, etc. All we had to buy was food!
From the outside this looks like a little log cabin, but there is tons of room inside! You can easily sleep two, possibly three, families in this home (easily two families with kids and a set of grandparents!). The first floor has a lovely living room and the basement has an additional living space (family room) with a Wii for the kids!
We were all so comfortable in this home - soft sheets & towels, a grill on the deck, a hot tub, fireplace, an office nook for your laptop, Wi-fi, and six televisions! No-one missed home because we were all very comfortable there.
There's lots to do in the Big Sky area: we went horseback riding, white water rafting, zip-lining, high-ropes course, rode the scenic chairlift at the resort, visited Yellowstone two days, and did lots of fishing! There are a lot more activities like mountain-biking & tubing on the rivers that we did not have enough time to do.
I'm running out of space so I'll wrap this up by saying the home was perfect, and Big Sky Vacation Rentals is a great company to do business with...we will be calling again the next time we go to Big Sky!

My family went on vacation to Big Sky with 3 other families. Between the 4 families we have 6 kids under the age of 2.5. The cabin was big enough that we had space to comfortably sleep the kids and ourselves, and there was ample room for them to play without ruining naptime for the others. The staff was very amicable and helpful with our vacation, and all 4 families want to go back.

We came to Big Sky for the first time and stayed at the Powder Ridge Cabin #118. We loved the house..plenty or room for two families(we had 4 adults & 5 kids), the amenities were nice(great hot tub) and the location(ski in/out) was great. The only issue we had was with the internet service...but from what I understand, its very slow no matter where you are in Big Sky...So as long as your not dependent on fast internet, we'd highly recommend the property and Big Sky in general.

Our group of ski friends rented this unit 2/2011 and we enjoyed our week long stay immensely. We are a picky group, accustomed to very nice accommodations when we ski, and this cabin did not disappoint. Despite some frigid temps and lots of snow, the place was warm and cozy. The ski-out, ski-in to Big Sky was pretty easy, and the skiing was excellent. The cabin is in excellent shape, nice amenities, good location, with a nice view of the sunrise from the deck, and though we did not use the hot tub due to the weather, it looked very nice and inviting. The kitchen has a good array of pots/pans/dishes and that is a big help as we made most of our own meals (which I strongly recommend if you stay for more than a few days). You should have a 4WD vehicle, as the roads in the area can be tough after a big snow. Kirsten King and her associates are very nice to work with, gave us a personal tour/intro to the cabin, were very helpful with suggestions for places to go and things to do, and overall provided us with a very professional, positive experience. We would not hesitate to stay in this unit again, and hope to on our next trip to Big Sky.

What a great house! We had everything we needed, including a high chair and crib for our 1 year old. The house was very comfortable, warm, and had lots of space for our 5 kids. The hot tub on the back porch was a huge hit. We will definitely be back!

We (my spouse and 3 adult children - plenty of "space" for all) stayed at this Powder Ridge cabin for about two weeks over the Christmas holiday. Not a difficult ski-out to (less than 15 minutes to base area) and very easy ski-in from Big Sky resort (I'm a "blue run" skier). Management team was extremely pleasant and very accommodating - they even helped me by accepting delivery of Christmas presents that I had shipped. Cabin was very clean and well equipped (including wireless internet and satellite TV). Location also very convenient to Moonlight Basin resort although we did not ski there this year - we dined at Moonlight - good food and great atmosphere - a couple of times including Christmas Eve and had no problem with roads which were routinely cleared of snow each day.

Husband and I stayed with several other people. The rooms are comfortable and plently of space (there were 7 of us). Great location and quick access to the slope. We've rented other houses before for vacation and this was one of the best.

Powder Ridge in the summer is a great place to spend time. Excellent furnishings and finishes, close to the mountain village and a short ride to the Meadows and all that goes on down there. We enjoyed a fire in the cool evenings (coming from SC that was a blast!). We would most definately stay there again.

We had an awesome time. We have been to many beautiful places. Big Sky is at the top of the list. It met our needs. It was a great time for my wife and I to reconnect and enjoy the beauty of big Sky. The house was perfect. The length of stay was long enough to unwind. The activities of fishing, riding and hiking were beautiful. We had some great romantic dinners. We will try to do it every summer.
