Many people are looking for remote hideaways these days. But one just hit the market that might top them all. Great Point Lodge in the ski and summer destination of Big Sky, Montana was just listed for $25 million and features everything (and more) you’d want in a luxurious getaway.
The lodge is a 16,000-square-foot, eight-bed, 9.5-bath home set on the highest ridge of a 160-acre property that has timber, meadows, and trout ponds, and a trail around it. It’s secluded, near the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park, but just minutes from Big Sky’s Town Center. So, you have access to skiing at Big Sky Resort in winter and fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and more in summer.
“The 160-acre property is beautiful, with forest, meadows, several trout ponds, and streams. Its location on a ridge top in the heart of Big Sky, Montana means it’s secluded but close to restaurants, galleries and more in Town Center, Big Sky’s commercial district,” Martha Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Founding Broker, The Big Sky Real Estate Company, told Departures. “It’s a rarity to find a property of this quality that’s positioned perfectly in a ski town.”
Of course, the design is as impressive as the surroundings. The reclaimed timber and stone lodge features a lookout tower for nearly 360-degree mountain views, full-service kitchen, custom bar with a 144-gallon saltwater fish tank, and gaming area next to the wine cellar. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower and covered porch, and every other bedroom suite has outdoor patios or porches. A spa area with a sauna, a large steam shower, and a hot tub overlooks the pond next to the house. There’s even a separate room off the kitchen dedicated to making pizzas.
“Constructed with beautiful Montana moss rock stonework, reclaimed hewn timbers and floorboards, and custom ironwork to make it look like it’s been there for a century. Even the nails in the floorboards were custom made to enhance the rustic look,” said Johnson. “The home itself is the epitome of a mountain lodge—accommodations for up to 20, but still comfortable for two.”
