Lovely Accommadations for all ages

August 2018 The Keating family said. . . .We’ve totally enjoyed our stay at Diamond Hitch. Lovely accommodations for all ages—hiking trails, fishing at the pond, zip lining, music concert. Lots of family time, playing cards, games, hot tub, steam shower, and, of course, eating! We were blessed with mild weather, visits from deer, fox and sighting of a moose. Thankful for a most wonderful family vacation.

The Whole Atmosphere Was Great

July 2018 The Amjad family said. . . .It is a lovely house. The view is beautiful. We had so much fun. The whole atmosphere was great. Thank you.

Great mountain! Great House!

February 2019 Drew, Amy, and Friends said. . . . Drew’s 40th surprise birthday ski trip! The trip was planned for over a year by his amazing wife, Amy. Friends came from Arizona, Chicago, Charlottesville, and Washington D.C. to surprise Drew and celebrate with him. To know Drew is to love him…there are few people in this world like Drew. Age range of guests was 27-late 60s! Only Drew could unite a group like that Great mountain! Great house! Great food! Great Drinks (too much Corona for some)! Great laughs! Great (new) Friends!

Great time for the last week of ski season

April 2019 We had a great time for the last week of ski season—despite the rain and a few minor issues. We really enjoyed seeing all of the ski history and watching Warren Miller movies (only 2?) in the media room. Thanks!

Excellent, family and friends and everyone enjoyed home

July 2019 Clea said….Diamond Hitch home was very nice and enjoyed by our family. Each bedroom had their own bath which was nice. Family used hot tub, enjoyed movies in theatre room, dining table easily accommodated eleven of us. Location was great. We enjoyed the Big Sky area and activities: fly fishing, white water rafting, ski lift to top of mountain, hiking. We brought books to read but were too busy. We did spend one day at Yellowstone which the whole family enjoyed. Great home for a family.

Our Stay in the House

August 2019 Jim said…..Our stay in the house was very enjoyable as always.  Notice you had replaced the microwave, thanks.   Great house, best design for large group we have stayed in.

Annual Trip Out West

April 2019 Ryan V. said…..We (three families of four, one couple, and one single) spent 5 nights at Diamond Hitch. The place is absolutely amazing! We all enjoyed looking at all of the Warren Miller and other memorabilia around the house. Moonlight Basin ended up being our favorite part of the mountain, and the groomer groomed right up to the first step outside our doorway. Thanks so much Jim and Pam!

Perfect location and stay…

March 2019 Don F. said…..Our group of 10 chose Diamond Hitch for our yearly corporate retreat and it was the perfect choice. The ski in-ski out made the whole trip so much better. The home is well laid out, clean, and little touches like the platter of cookies and cheese says how much the owners care about their guests. We used the theater room for several of our presentations. Overall, I would rate the stay a 10. Communication was very good-there were no surprises or issues. Their welcome letter was very detailed and very helpful. We plan to return to Big Sky next year and hope we can return to Diamond Hitch.

The owners are very friendly and professional

September 2018, James H. said ....We have rented this house on seven separate occasions in late summer for an old friends fishing trip. This trip has been going on for over 20 years and has involved various hotels and houses in four states. This is the best house by far and we keep returning to it. It has seven separate bedrooms and baths, several of the bedrooms with two beds. The great room is huge and the kitchen well supplied with all necessities to cook for a large group, something missing in other houses quite often. The owners are very friendly and professional. You will not be disappointed in this house! James H.

We hope we can return sometime in the future

March, 2018

The Jacob/Supak combination family enjoyed every minutes of our 3-1-18/3-8-18 stay at your facility. Probably the most snow we ever saw on the ground (we are from South Central Texas). Also a great snowfall on Sunday (3-4-18) gave the kids a tremendous experience.

The physical arrangement of the house was perfect for us. The well appointed kitchen facility was great as we are a cooking lunch – age 83 to 1 yr. The 2 four year olds skied for their first time – did well and loved it.

We hope we can return sometime in the future to further explore the area around Big Sky.

Robyn J

We enjoyed your place!

March, 2018

Playing cards at night with everyone and grandpa kicking our butts in “Pass the trash”.

The facilities and being with most of our family. Watching Jolie & Kannon (4 yr olds) play inside with all the toys/games. They were so good. Also seeing Jolie to be so excited to put on skis and how she loved ski school.

The skiing was amazing and the 18” of snow make for great powder skiing! Trying to ski again, watching Kannon (4 yrs old) ski for the first time & loving it, watching it snow, sledding, and being with family.

We are thankful for (almost all of our whole family) being here spending quality time with our grand children, Jolie & Kannon’s nightly meal prayers and Reid (1 Yr). Thomas saying “Gigi and Papa” the first time…. Also the last night shooting pool with gramps!

Bill & Hail B& Family

The snow was outstanding

December, 2017

16 of us descended on your lovely home from Louisiana, Florida, Texas, and New York! The snow was outstanding (2 feet of fresh powder), and skiers and boarders loved the expanse of the mountain, and the lack of crowds. We have Christmas stockings for “Santa” to fill, had a white elephant gift exchange, played a rousing game of charades, enjoyed delicious meals prepared mostly by each individual family, and spent quality time in the hot tub and stead room!! We took one day and went to Yellowstone for cat rides and history, and Old Faithful. Two of our group ice fished on the Gallatin River and enjoyed catching trout! Enjoyed looking at all your posters, photos, family pictures, and notes. Looks like many years of wonderful memories! Thank you for an enjoyable holiday!!

Happy 2018!

Jim & Pam, Thanks for hosting a ski day at Yellowstone club. We had a fabulous day, and it was a very special experience for our group.

Judy Echols

Loved our stay!

January, 2017

This house is ski in and out at Big Sky in the Moonlight Basin area. Skied down to a small lift that is 3 minutes ski time away. From there you can take another lift that will bring you to the ski runs. Spacious house, great kitchen, and views. We had a generous area to store your skis, boots, and poles. Best of all a super boot dryer/warmer! Aaah! Great en-suite bedrooms. We have stayed there twice and look forward to staying there again in the future.

Love it, love it!

January, 2017

We has stayed at this beautiful home twice now. We usually stay with a group of friends who are serious skiers. The place is very well maintained with a great kitchen where we can all gather. The ski-in/ski-out location is just right. You can get to the runs easily and the area is quiet. Super area for all of your snow gear.

Holger Lorraine

Big Sky remains one of our favorite destinations. Being able to go the YC is always a fantastic capstone to a great trip. Thanks so much for making it happen.

Fantastic ski-in/ski-out home with all the amenities

January, 2017

This spacious home is in a great location with ski-in/ski-out access right to the back door. There is lots of room in this home, and it is well set-up for skiing couples. There are great views of the ski hill, as well as across the valley. We really appreciated the garage area which is well set up for storing skis and drying your gear after a day on the slopes.

Paul N.

Best ski vacation home I ever stayed in!!!

January, 2017

Booked this place for family and friends to ski at Big Sky. It was amazing! You literally walk right out the door to a groomed trail that takes you to lifts on moonlight basin side. You can ski down from the Challenger lift right back to the house. We had everything we needed from slippers and robes to all the cooking and kitchen utensils for our group of 13. We loved the home theater and the sauna, hot tub, even a steam room! The owners must be pretty cool because they have a bunch of fun pictures decorating the amazing cabin. I've already told everyone I know how great it was and wouldn't hesitate to go there again. I'm already looking at booking another ski trip!

Mark S

Fantastic ski-in/ski-out home in a great location

January, 2017

Very spacious home with lots of room for 11 adults and all their gear. We really appreciated the ski-in/ski-out access right to the back door, and the house is well set-up for skiers! Beautiful location with great views of both the ski hill and across the valley. We also enjoyed taking advantage of the home's many amenities including the hot tub, sauna, and theater room.

Beyond Best

Jan 2017

We have previously stayed in the Russell Mace diamond hitch house. It just gets better and better. The houses extremely well-equipped. We were able to seat and serve over 20 people comfortably for dinner one night. The location is excellent for ski and in ski out. Due to the easy access, it can easily accommodate both young skiers who do not wish to ski all day or older skiers who will only ski a partial day. The amenities are first-rate. There are literally hundreds of movies in the media room. The decorations are delightful. Other amenities include a boot and glove Dryer that is extremely helpful. The location is close enough to restaurants however the kitchen facilities are first-rate. Parking is generous and easily accommodates multiple vehicles. We have previously stayed in the Russell Mace homes in Whistler British Columbia, Jackson Hole Wyoming, Deer Valley Utah and Cowboy Heaven Big Sky Montana. All of the homes are the first rate and can easily accommodate several couples. All of them are five-star.

Terry

Great place for making memories

Dec 2016

Colorado, Kentucky, Minnesota, Norway, Virginia, and West Virginia merged in Big Sky for a fabulous Christmas gathering. Great place for making memories. Skiing, a coach tour of Yellowstone, hot tub, memories, loads of laughs and great stories. Young niece and first time skiing said: “Best vacation ever!” The first day of winter and a lovely start to the season.

James & Barry

Diamond Hitch / Big Sky Excellence!

Dec, 2016

This was our second time staying at this home for our annual end of year vacation. Not only is this house immaculate, the location is perfectly situated away from town but right on a ski-in/ski-out run! AMAZING time, we can't wait to rent this home again with another group of family and friends!

Kyle

Absolutely Fabulous again

September, 2016

Thank you for making this our home away from home four years in a row! We thoroughly enjoy this Home and all that it has to offer. We had a visit on our deck from a black bear. I think we scared him more than he scared us! We saw elk down the street and our resident fox also paid us a visit. We look forward to more wonderful memories next year!

Willie

We had a great time

July, 2016

Celebrating an 80th birthday. 18 people here and we all really enjoyed the house and all its features. Pictures around [the house] were enjoyable to look at for the adults and kids. We visited Yellowstone park, some went fly fishing, rafting, water board and rafts at Big Sky center. Our big party was held at Cabin Fever. Weather was great.

We had a great time and really enjoyed the place

Jul,2016

We had a great time and really enjoyed the place. We loved seeing the fox with the dark colored paws come by the house each morning . We will certainly stay there again.

We did have a great time. We've been going to big ski for the past 5 years at that time of year. Best snow yet. Thank you very much for the home. Please pass on our thanks everyone had an awesome time. We have stayed at different places on the hill before and must say we really appreciated the ski in/ski out. We had some little skiers and it was wonderful for them to take a break off & on at the house which such easy access. There is lots of talk already about coming bk.

We enjoyed our week at your house

March, 2016

Maxwell family enjoyed our week at your house. The baby daughter in the family got married at the top of the Ram Chauga on the 18th and we had the reception that evening at the Huntley. All the grand-kids enjoyed skiing and ski lessons. The views from the house are amazing! We really enjoyed the meat & cheese tray and dessert tray!

Spacious, superior location and well equipped

January, 2016

We recently returned from another spectacular vacation at Big Sky. We have never stayed in as place as nice as this home. We were able to watch football games and movies, cook dinner and play games after our long days of skiing. Some of us even spent time in the Jacuzzi and steam room. The best part of this house is the ski in ski out access. We loved walking out the door, putting on our skis and just heading down the hill. The location of this home is truly spectacular as you get to see sunrise on the Spanish peaks and watch the sun go down over the amazing Lone Peak. This house is truly a wonderful place to stay. Everything we needed was here-including sleds. We planning to return soon.

I am a unabashed repeat customer of this incredible ski in-ski out property at Big Sky/Moonlight Basin, Montana. The house is up-to-date, very comfortable and roomy. I personally absolutely love going to the steamer after my ski day and then following that with a period of time in the hot tub three steps outside the back door. The views out the front windows of the Spanish Peaks are extraordinary. The owners are very easy to work with and I simply cannot think of another place I would rather stay to ski than at Diamond Hitch!

January, 2016

The ski in ski out access from this home is amazing. We did not expect that we be able to just walk out the side door and be able to ski down to the chair. The convenience to come home for lunch and check on things was so awesome. We had a great time playing board games and watching football while others were relaxing in the hot tub. There were more utensils in the beautiful kitchen than we have at home which made for fun times cooking. We loved the great pictures that decorated the house and themed bedrooms. We highly recommend this home for large family vacations. We will be back soon to enjoy this extraordinary luxury vacation home!!!

Spacious, superior location and well equipped

January, 2016

We recently returned from another spectacular vacation at Big Sky. We have never stayed in as place as nice as this home. We were able to watch football games and movies, cook dinner and play games after our long days of skiing. Some of us even spent time in the Jacuzzi and steam room. The best part of this house is the ski in ski out access. We loved walking out the door, putting on our skis and just heading down the hill. The location of this home is truly spectacular as you get to see sunrise on the Spanish peaks and watch the sun go down over the amazing Lone Peak. This house is truly a wonderful place to stay. Everything we needed was here-including sleds. We planning to return soon.

Ski-in, Ski-out at its finest

December, 2015

We had a group of couples and friends together here for our annual New Year's gathering. We have been to many places including Breck, Vail, Whistler, etc. This was the best house we have stayed at out of all of them due to sheer convenience. We were able to walk out of the house and ride down the hill to the Pony Express lift within 2 minutes. From the top of the 6-shooter lift it took us about 4 minutes until we were walking into the house for lunch. We never had that luxury before. They had boot warmers in the garage that could fit everything for 15 people we had there. Hot tub, movie theater and big spacious living area was great. Here are a few notes to future renters that might help: Make sure you have a 4WD to get up to the house. It was mentioned a few times in notes from the owner/property managers, but we had friends with a 2WD SUV they thought would make it, but couldn't. We parked them near the Pony Express and shuttled them up with my beast of a 4WD. Next, there is only 1 refrigerator. We bought a lot of food for a week of cooking and had to play a game of tetris every time we pulled out the guacamole just to make it fit again. A second refrigerator and access to a pantry would have made the kitchen a bit more tidy. Next, buy your lift tickets before heading up to the house. You can get them at Moonlight Lodge not too far from the house. That way you can take full advantage of the ski-in, ski-out perk and won't have to make an unnecessary drive the morning. Bottom line, we loved this place and will likely return again in the future. Thank you! Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Adventure Seekers

Ski in ski out–everything was great!

December, 2015

I have stayed in Big Sky before with the family but have never had accommodations like we had at this Diamond Hitch home. You can tell the owner really cares about having everything available to those that stay in this amazing vacation home. The kitchen is absolutely spectacular. The views from the great room were breathtaking. The ski in ski out access is very a big plus--right out the door to the lift hill. We cannot wait to go back to this wonderful home.

Ski in Ski out at its best!

November, 2015

We had no idea that we would be able to just walk out the door, put on our ski’s and go. This house is the best!!! The 16 of us enjoyed this Diamond Hitch so much. The Media room rocked with a huge collection of movies for all of us to enjoy. The hot tub was so enjoyable as we could watch Lone Peak disappear as the sun went down. The kitchen was perfect for us to cook our Thanksgiving Feast and all our other meals. This home has everything we needed and more. We can’t wait to go back.

A special place. The home is beautiful. The owners have their own professional team to manage the property. They also retain a local person who is available to handle any problems. We visited during the summer and found that the area including the Big Sky Resort offered a variety of activities including hiking, rafting, zip lining, and horseback riding. We did not fish on this trip, but understand that the nearby Gallatin River can be good for those who want to wade. Yellowstone Park is about an hour's drive away. The home sits at 8,100 ft. above sea level. The views at sunrise, sunset and of the night stars are spectacular. The kitchen is fully equipped - including condiments! We were welcomed with cheese and fruit trays. Our party had 15 people of all ages and there was plenty of room. The home theater was perfect for the kids on our rainy Saturday. We'd recommend this property for just about any large group.

Great summer get-away

June, 2015

We rented this home for a large family retreat (13 adults, 4 children) and enjoyed the solitude and easy access to Yellowstone and many outdoor activities. There are abundant hiking trails, mountain bike trails, and other places to explore right around the house, so we spent several days just spending time around the home as well. The home is at high altitude (about 7,000+ feet), so it did take us a little while to figure out why we were a little more short of breath on easy walks! The property managers were friendly and accessible and also helped make it a great stay. Though summer was beautiful, we'd love to come back in winter to hit the slopes!

We went to Big Sky with 10 guys for our annual ski trip. Everything about this house was fantastic. The house was perfect and had everything we could possibly want. We really enjoyed the layout of the house with an open living/kitchen/dining area and plenty of sleeping options that were private and great. The ski room/heated garage was a great place for our things to keep wet clothes and boots to dry out away from the rest of the house. The boot dryers and benches are great When I build a ski house of my own, I will model it after this home. The ski out run down to the lift was always groomed. The ski in was so nice to ski into the garage. Super easy. We'd all go again in a heartbeat. Thanks.

Great Home, Great Service, Great Location!!

March, 2015

If you are looking for a way to make your family and friends happy while enjoying all of the awesomeness that is Big Sky, this is the place to stay. With everybody having their own room, a cozy place to watch movies, a place to hide and a fabulous kitchen to make feasts for all, Diamond Hitch is unbeatable. This home made everybody happy beyond our expectations. The location is awesome for ski in/ski out. You will not be disappointed. Looking forward to another trip!!!

Best house ever!

January, 2015

Our small ski club chose this house in 2013 and we liked it so much we came back this year! It has everything you could ask for in a ski vacation. Plenty of room for the eight couples who stayed here and the two newest couples stayed just up the slope in Cowboy heaven. We are going to be hard pressed to find another place that fit our needs the way this does, from the heated garage with ski storage to being able to ski right to the door. The steam room, sauna, media room and hot tub were the bomb! The caretaker, Beth, worked to solve any issues we had right away. We may just have to come back again!

Diamond Hitch... a Great Ski-in/Ski-out house!

January, 2015

We had a wonderful time at the Diamond Hitch residence. Took us awhile to find the house but once we did we had no problem traveling around the area. Great house with many bedrooms and individual beds. The hot tub, steam room and sauna were well worth using after skiing all day. Large kitchen with huge dining table easily accommodated our group of 8 for breakfast and dinner. • The temperature in the house was hard to control. Downstairs was cold, main floor just right and upstairs the guys complained it was too hot. • Great mountain to ski, no lift lines and big wide open slopes for cruising. Highlight was driving to West Yellowstone and snowmobiling to "Old Faithful". • Just a bit over an hour drive from Bozeman Airport. Recommended for: Adventure Seekers

Fantastic amenities and views

December, 2014

We loved our holiday stay at Diamond Hitch. The house is fantastic with the most beautiful view to wake up to. The 10 of us stayed in this home and it was a perfect fit for our group. Skiing to the slopes was awesome.... the views were breathtaking. This home provides fantastic amenities and we made sure to take full advantage: the steam room after a long day of skiing, the hot tub, and the in-home movie theater especially. The convenience of the ski-in ski-out location made a great vacation even better. We hope we will be lucky enough to enjoy a visit to this home again soon. We can't wait to go back!

Exceptional Home and luxury at its BEST

December, 2014

It was a great get away before the crowds of Christmas break. The house is exceptional with lovely furnishings and many upscale design features. We especially enjoyed the media room, the hot tub, and after ski refreshments with friends and family. From the hot tub, you have a terrific view of Lone Mountain! The ski in ski out area is complete with boot and glove driers. We would definitely stay at this lovely home again. "Montana - the Best last place!"--If you haven't been, you must go!

Tranquility Defined

December, 2014

This house is amazing; pictures don’t do it justice. The minute I unpacked I sunk into the couch by the fireplace and started winding down. It’s such a tranquil environment, nestled in the middle of several ski runs and set up for skiers, but is just as pleasing to non-skiers. My girlfriend hadn’t skied in 25 years so she chose to relax and enjoy the views and serenity of the house the first day, however after watching the snow fall all night, we rented skis and got her on the slopes as well. After a full day of skiing we jumped in the Jacuzzi, then made dinner in a kitchen created for the fantasy gourmand I believe I am. After dinner we popped open our favorite bottle of wine and headed to the built-in movie theater to watch two movies from the extensive collection available. The bedroom was inviting after a full day of activities, and gave us a quiet night of rest to wake up and start all over again.

Family Reunion

August, 2014

This was a perfect house for our family reunion of 11 adults! Location at top of Big Sky was beautiful and easy to get to. The house was so spacious and we were able to spread out and used all 7 bedrooms! Movie room was a hit with some at night while others loved the huge living room. While there we hiked, fished, shopped, went to Lone Peak via tram, while some biked down and some zip lined down. Yellowstone was an easy 1 hr drive. Horseback riding and white water rafting were also a hit. Weather was perfect the 10 days we were there. On the cool side for late August but felt great! House has lots of amenities like robes, hair dryers, and everything you will need in a kitchen! Hope we can all go back another time!

The house was gorgeous and perfect for our family

August, 2014

The house was gorgeous and perfect for our family reunion. My 87 year old mother, who uses a walker, chose the smaller bedroom on the main floor since it was easier for her to ambulate in that bedroom and bath. We went to Yellowstone for a couple of days, Virginia and Nevada City, whitewater rafting on the Gallatin, horseback riding (Jake's Horses are awesome), the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, and we loved the Big Sky Farmer's Market. Our zip lining adventure was canceled due to lightning. One evening we enjoyed a special treat: an open air concert at Big Sky. We had a fantastic time, and Beth Van Horn was extremely friendly and helpful. She was able to stop the forced air temporarily. We never were able to figure out the air/heating situation, and ultimately covered the vents with pillows to stop the dry air from blasting into the rooms. There's nothing like sleeping with the windows open and smelling the fragrant cool mountain air. Thanks again for allowing our family to stay at your fabulous resort home.

Big Sky Dream

April, 2014

I've been all over the west and British Columbia on ski vacations, and stayed in all manner of accommodations, and have never stayed in a more convenient, better stocked, or all inclusive venue! The house is huge, sleeping up to 18, but still maintains a homey atmosphere due to all the personal touches, like photos and awesome posters, including skiing giants like Warren Miller. The living area, dining and living room, were extremely comfortable and roomy allowing the entire group to eat and relax together in one area. The hot tub was large enough to accommodate those interested in soothing sore muscles. The movie theater was a great touch for after dinner relaxation, and great for keeping kids entertained in the evenings, great movie selections also. The kitchen was fantastic, every modern convenience was available. Cooking meals was a breeze. Ski access was unbeatable, walk 20 yds out the back, ski on groomed trail to lift, upload without a ticket, ski down run to lodge, buy ticket, ski all day, or return to house for lunch, ski home at end of day right up to your door! Awesome! This is the perfect retreat for a great family ski vacation or reunion, or a group of good friends together enjoying the mountains. By the way Big Sky is an incredible mountain, with vast terrain for beginners to extreme skiers! Doesn't get any better!

Castle In Big Sky

April, 2014

The place is beautiful, comfortable, very clean and spacious. Bedrooms and baths are very nice. Beds were comfy. Slept like a baby. Kitchen is well appointed with the basics you might need like spices and even some "not so basics”. This place is very spacious. The views from every room of the house are amazing. We loved that we could ski in and ski out so easily with all levels of skiers in our group and we did not have to carry our equipment more than 5 steps.There was plenty of room for our large group of adults and kids to spread out and be comfortable. We loved can’t wait to go back.

Beatiful Ski in-Ski out cabin!

Our group of 4 families just returned from Big Sky and had a wonderful time at this beautiful cabin. We have stayed at other ski-in and ski-out cabins and this one by far been the easiest to get on and off the slopes. We have beginner snowboarders to Summit skiers, and everyone seemed to love the location. The home itself was set up beautifully with an open floor plan and great amount of beds. We will definitely be back! Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Families with Teenagers

The best Ski-In/Ski-Out!

March, 2014

We had our family reunion at this beautiful lodge at Moonlight Basin in March 2014. The home was very comfortable and roomy enough for our gang. We loved the expansive ski resort and took turns between Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. It was the best ski-in/ski-out we have ever stayed at. The run is right behind the house and the cat even groomed to our door! Apres-ski we enjoyed the hot tub on the back patio…and each night everyone relaxed in the Home Theater with a movie. If you’re looking for the perfect lodge for your ski group, this is it.

Diamond Hitch is the pinnacle of vacation homes

July 24, 2013

I chose this home as a corporate retreat venue. I rewarded my top salespeople with a week retreat to this outstanding Big Sky Diamond Hitch vacation home. This home was hassle-free, incredibly spacious, very comfortable and over-the-top with ways to relax. This vacation home is suited with an extensive guestbook that shows options of things to do that would take all summer to accomplish, not to mention all the things to do in the winter. The ease of communication in booking this house was our first clue that it was going to be a great week. We’re (10) all planning to book this home in the near future for a ski vacation.

Just wonderful

July, 2013

It was a beautiful house, with lots and lots of room for our extended family to all spread out but plenty of room in the great room when we wanted to be all together. It was nicely furnished and had everything that we needed. I can't say enough about the location. It was up on the mountain with a great view across the valley to another mountain. Our first day it rained and when it cleared there was a big rainbow so close we could almost touch it. We would all love to stay there again, and get another Montana fix.

Unforgettable Ski Vacation with the Guys

Decided to take a ski vacation up to Montana with some of my old college buddies, what an amazing experience. This house was enormous, with great views of the surrounding mountain ranges while only steps away from the slopes. We were putting on our skis right outside the front door. At night we had the option of staying in and warming up in the hot tub or even watching a movie together in the movie theater-style media room. It was great to catch up after a couple years apart, and we are already planning our next group trip to this amazing getaway. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Adventure Seekers

Loved it!

January, 2013

Our ski club rented this house for the 2013 ski season. We have always stayed in condos before but decided to try a house this time since we are all good friends. We are going to have a hard time matching this home. It had everything we needed and more! To be able to ski right out, and to the door was the best! We enjoyed the media room since we were there for the Super Bowl and the steam room was great for our dried out bodies. The ski storage in the heated garage was also a real plus!! Plenty of warm room for us to gear up and unload. We would definitely recommend this house to any large group!

A perfect home for ski club!

January, 2013

After a long day flight we ventured up the hill to a very welcoming, comfy place that 16 of us would call home for 10 days! We enjoyed ski in/ out and tooling around Big Sky Mall. The wild life is amazing; we had snow 6 of 10 days, perfect conditions! We enjoyed the jacuzzi, steam room & sauna after skiing. We watched the Super Bowl in the media room & shared our MSC pics on the Big Screen. Buck T-4’s was glad to see us come and after 2 ski shots probably were ready for us to leave, the food was delicious! This home is very accommodating and we truly enjoyed all the amenities! We loved being able to cook big meals, eat together and play cards each night at the huge table! We felt right at home and look forward to visiting again!

Extraordinary in every way!

July 2012

There was a mountain view from every window! It was quiet and spacious. The kitchen had good equipment, the only thing we did not have was a lemon juicer. The movie room was used by the teens and also the adults when we were not busy hiking, rafting, or horse back riding. Everything was within 20 to 30 minute distance. The trail maps were very helpful and easy to follow! We absolutely loved the location and the house! It is the best we have stayed in and we have been doing this 11 years. Everything is of such high quality!Congrats to the home owner!

There was a mountain view from every window! It was quiet and spacious. The kitchen had good equipment, the only thing we didn't have was a lemon juicer 🙂 The movie room was used by the teens and also the adults when we weren't busy hiking, rafting,or horse back riding. Everything was within 20 to 30 minute distance. The trail maps were very helpful and easy to follow! We absolutely loved the location and the house! It's the best we've stayed in and we've been doing this 11 years. The "welcome" gifts of fruit, cheese and crackers and cookies were very special. We've never had these before either, and they made us feel like the management really cared about our visit! The only draw back we found was no blinds on the windows. With the sky getting dark after 10 p.m. and light beginning at 4:30 or so, it made longer sleep almost impossible. Room darkening shades would not be that expensive. Please, everything else is of such high quality!!! Congrats to the home owner!

Elegant with luxurious amenities, Epic Pow

February 2012

Ski-in and Ski-out has been taken to a whole new level!!! It is less than 16 steps to the ski slope. The house is nicely situated slope side. The home is prestigiously appointed with sauna, steam room, spa, 7 bedrooms and baths. This was great for our family and a group of friends. There is a large TV room with big screen and surround sound. The kitchen is huge and doesn't lack for anything. We are planning on making another trip here next year, staying at the same place.

Terrific On Slope Property

February 2012

This house is very nicely furnished, has an excellent great room and kitchen perfect for group gatherings. All the bedrooms are very well appointed as is the kitchen. Hot tub is right off the great room and the ski slopes are right next to the garage side door. Perfect in every way. We have stayed here several times for ski weeks and can't wait to get back. Summer in Big Sky is also incredible. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers

Once again, I had a great time at the Diamond Hitch house. It was warm and comfortable, and the view was spectacular. Better still, it was wonderfully quiet.

A Great Place to Escape

April 2011

The house was more than the pictures led us to expect - so luxurious and comfortable. I want that iktchen at home! We enjoyed the media room and watched some great movies. My favorite thing, besides skiing, was the sunrise in the morning. How can you beat the view. And speaking of skiing, what a treat to be able to walk out the door and start down the mountain. I would recommend this place to everybody. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers

Great Place for Fun and easy access to Skiing!!!!

April 2011

We have stayed at this house twice and both times were incredible. The most recent stay was the beginning of April 2011. The skiing was fabulous, some fresh powder almost everyday. There were 12 in our group and plenty of space for all of us, kitchen area is great for cooking big meals and hanging out with everyone and then you have plenty of room for personal space, which isn't always the case when you are with a big group. It is really set up for ski in ski out ,nice area to store your gear and to get all suited up for a day of hassle free skiing...even for a big group! No crowded parking lots etc, just fun. Everything you really need is there for you, just do grocery shopping etc on your way in and you are good to go!

Hard to leave this amazing home after the week we’ve had skiing in fresh powder and making memories with great friends. Our 3 boys will always remember their Moonlight Basin experience and are already asking when we can come back. Maybe we’ll try to vacation at all the Russell-Mace homes…

Wow...This was an incredible vacation for our family. We really enjoyed your beautiful spacious home with all of its amenities. The kids loved the theatre room while my husband and I enjoyed the dry sauna and steam room after a hard day of skiing. The kids were all excited about each having their own bedroom, and we all slept great on the comfortable beds. Unlike other homes we have stayed in, your house is truly ski in and ski out. We really did walk five feet out your backdoor, put on our skis and skied to the nearest lift. It was easy to get the kids out the door for their ski lessons, giving my husband and I the chance to rip up both mountains, Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. The snow conditions throughout the week were fantastic, with at least 6”- 12” of fresh snow falling every day. We highly recommend any guests with large families to stay in this home because it is so comfortable and can sleep so many. We are looking forward to our vacation at your Whistler home next year! By the way, did you receive our reservation? Thanks again!

Ski in, ski out. The only way to ski. This property sits on a ridge overlooking Big Sky. Fantastic views from each bedroom. Walk-in showers in large bedrooms with all the privacy one could desire. Spectacular movie room. A hot tub from which you can watch the local red fox explore the surrounding berms. A cavernous living and dining room with cathedral ceilings. You will think you are close to heaven. I have been at this property over five times in the last eight years and will try to return each year. This work thing is getting in the way.

An incredible property with million dollar views

February, 2011

I've stayed in this property 3 or 4 times and it is by far one of the best ski-in/out properties in the american Rockies. My wife and I have rented similar properties in Vail, Aspen, ParkCity, Whistler BC, Breck, the list goes on... If you haven't skied Big Sky yet, you should! And this is "the" place to stay. Have a glass of wine for us in the hot tub!

Big Sky at its best

January 2011

This is a beautiful property with an unbeatable location for all Big Sky has to offer. Have stayed twice with a big group and everyone agrees that we will be going back! Walk out the door, click into your skis and slide down to the lifts - a perfect set up. The house is great for groups of couples, a guy trip or multiple families. Large bedrooms with private bathrooms, big open kitchen, theatre in lower level and a great hot tub looking out at Lone Peak. Really a perfect location.

We have stayed at many of the Russell Mace Vacation homes. They are always well kept and every little detail has been thought of. The bedrooms are very spacious and having a private bathroom attached to each is great. The kitchens are also roomy and allow for a group atmosphere for your dining experiences. The hot tubs and movie rooms are a welcomed end to a long day of skiing.

Spring Skiing with Fresh Powder!

April 2010

What a Fantastic House! There was 12 in our group and all of us had great accomodations. The bedrooms were very comfortable with wonderful mountain views throughout the house. The Kitchen and Dining area were perfect for our evening dinners. We ate at the house every night and even barbacued two of the nights. After, we would be down to the Theater Room for the nightly movie or some would be off to the hot tub or steam shower to sooth their tired bones. Talk about ski in and out, you are right off a major run. At the end of the day, skiing upto the house was a welcome pleasure. The group is already making plans to come back this season.

Best Ski In and Out by Far!

April, 2010

What a great experience renting this house. Everything went smooth from the get go. There was 12 in our group. All of us had spacious accomodations, plus the steam room, sauna, spa, and the theater room. The kitchen was well equipped for a large group. The house being located on a ski run was ideal for easy ski in and out. On top of everything we had fantastic snow conditions. We are hoping to make back again this year for some spring skiing.

Breathtaking View

January 2010

The first time we stayed at Diamond Hitch, we arrived at night in a snowstorm (yay, yay, yay!!!). The next morning dawned clear, and we were greeted by a spectacular view of the valley and mountains. It was the same the following year. The living area is warm and inviting, the bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, and the kitchen easily handles meals for a voracious crowd. Skiing in and out is ridiculously easy. The peak of luxury is the boot warming/drying rack in the garage. It is always a treat to put on boots that are warm and dry.

We are a party of ten good friends-singles and couples-who schedule a ski trip together each year. This was probably the best accommodations we’ve had. The home is very well laid out for skiers and quipped with everything we needed. The first day of skiing was very cold! -7 degrees the first day! All in all, a wonderful time was has by all.

This is our second time staying in this beautiful home. Another great stay! We saw a momma and baby moose many times. What a spectacular experience! We will always remember sitting on the deck and taking in the mountains. That memory was priceless. It was my birthday while here, and it will always be remembered. Your house was beautiful. It was so nice to have a place where all nine of us could stay. We will definitely be back to visit again!

We’re loving the views, comfort and amenities. Thank you for opening up your house to us. Seeing momma and baby moose in the yard on multiple mornings and evenings was delightful. I love the Yellowstone room---views, beds, and pictures are all great. The mountain and valley views reminded me of what an awesome Creator we have. Seeing the Rockie Mountains in summer brings a totally different perspective of their magnitude. That image will remain in my mind for a long time. This is truly one of the most beautiful places in our world!

Once again, your home was even better than advertised on the internet. We stayed at your Whistler home (in Taluswood) in 2006 and loved that house too. This house was perfect for our family reunion. The house is gorgeous and comfortable. We love your neighbors (Mother moose, her baby moose, and many deer). We love the views and the opportunity to reunite in such a beautiful place. We highly recommend “Jake’s” for horseback riding. Thank you for the memoies!

Three siblings, their families and one generous grandfather came together to celebrate being a family in stunningly beautiful Montana. Best memories: Movies in the theatre, hot tubbing, seeing the mama moose and her baby on our evening walk, and horseback riding. Everyone enjoyed having their own bathrooms as well.

Our group of twelve from Baltimore, MD and Denver, CO really loved the house and all the amenities! Probably the nicest we have stayed in over the years. Weather was pretty cold and windy at the end of the week which caused some lifts to shut down. We made full use of the media room and the large dining room table for playing cards! Thanks for your prompt responses to our requests! Also, thanks for having someone come by and shovel the snow!

We had a blast! We survived -20 degree weather but got some awesome powder out of it! The advanced skiers loved the glades and coming down form the peak. The novice skiers were excited to actually be able to ski in and out of the house! Friends from around the country gather every year for a ski trip in January. We have to say Big Sky and Moonlight Basin are the best resorts we’ve been to, and this house has been just fabulous. We also loved your Whistler house. Can’t wait to stay in more of you beautiful properties!

All in all, a great week with family in a beautiful setting. What a way to start 2008!
