Comfortable and convenient

Stillwater Condos are a great place to stay for skiing Big Sky. Just a half block or block walk to the Huntley Lodge, which is slopeside. You can book through Big Sky resort, and they have studios, 1 bedrooms, 1 bedroom + loft and 2 bedrooms. Each comes with full kitchen, living room, fireplace, sofa bed, and deck w/ BBQ.

We've stayed in 2-bedrooms, 2 bath condos both times, and both had different layouts. One had kind of a cool sunken bedroom/living room. This time we were in 1058 — same unit as last reviewers, but we seemed to like it a lot better. ($300/night for 2-bedroom condo is actually really good deal for Big Sky).

Downstairs is a bedroom (no TV), bath, kitchen, living room, and deck. Up the narrow spiral staircase upstairs was a master bed/bath. Decent decor--new-looking wood floors, kind of mountain lodge style furnishings. Old elliptical that didn’t work well crammed in corner - might want to lose that. But overall, very comfortable and pretty views of the mountain.

There's also free parking, wi-fi, and access to the Huntley Lodge outdoor pool (awesome), outdoor jacuzzis (great), and fitness center (very meager - needs updating). Note that you don't have access to the swim inside/outside pool that used to be part of Huntley, but is now considered the Shoshone's pool, and they charge an extra $20/day for access.

Only couple issues: cleanliness- some of pans were really dirty, ie still had eggs stuck to them, bowls were dirty, too. Pretty gross. We washed everything before using. Also, no extra garbage bags for kitchen. We called and they said they’d bring some down, but they never did. Also, called last morning for extended check-out from 11 am to noon, and woman said no problem, but then cleaning crew was there at 11 am sharp, and someone called me and wanted to know who I spoke with to get the extended check out; didn’t think I’d need to take a name. Not the best ending, but otherwise great stay, and definitely recommend.

Hi @SDTraveler01,

Thank you for reviewing the Stillwater condominiums! I'm so glad that you were able to check out all the extra pool amenities at the Huntley, that are only available to those who book directly with Big Sky Resort! I apologize for the communication issue that you experiences at the end of your stay, but we're glad to hear that you had a good visit with us and thank you for recommending the Stillwaters!

2 Bedroom condo unit 1058 outdated. I evaluate lodging by a few specific criteria; this condo failed at every turn. There were a total of 3 full/Queen size beds in the bedroom but there was only a sofa and 1 easy chair in living room, so there actually was not enough seating after ski day was over for family to sit down and relax together. There were only 4 of us and unless there were 3 people on the sofa a person had to sit on hard dining table chairs. Instead of extra seating, there is a ski type of work out machine in the corner of condo. TV was antiquated by not being a flat screen, not having clear picture quality, and dimension of maybe 25". Main bedroom on first floor had no TV at all. Upstairs bedroom had small flat screen TV that no one could get to operate. Staircase to second floor is extremely narrow and getting ski luggage upstairs required extreme muscle and ingenuity. Condo was not clean. There were specs of dirt on floor, bathroom rug was dirty, kitchen utensils holder had stains all over it causing us to question other cleanliness. We called managing facility who offer to give us a VIP cleaning. 3 college age kids came over for about 15 minutes while we were there. 1 ran a vacuum over BR rug, one ran dishwasher for utensil organizer and other vacuum miscellaneous areas. We had expected a deep cleaning; not sure what VIP cleaning means for this company. They did comp us $100 for the cleanliness issue. We paid over $300 per night for condo. Never have we stayed in such as place for so much money. Big Sky Resort- I am extremely disappointed in these accommodations and the cost you charged. Big corporation at its worst.

Room tip: Do not choose this condo.

Hi @snowghost99,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I apologize that some of your stay was not up to your expectations. We do try our very best to ensure that guests know what to expect when they stay in our condominiums, given that each unit is individually owned, and therefor aspects of each property can vary. I apologize that we missed the mark here. We take all feedback very seriously and will certainly use it as an opportunity to improve in the future.

I spent 3 days in unit 1026 (bldg B, second floor) with 2 women friends.

The proximity is very close to the Mtn- a great Plus! Just walk they the condo parking, up 8 steps, cross the street and enter thru the slopeside Huntley Lodge.

The Loft condo had a decent layout with king bed loft with private full bathroom and a queen bedroom on the main level next to the main bathroom. They supplied plenty of towels and soap/shampoo/etc.

The kitchen was the only real downer- very small and the cabinets were so tall, we couldn’t reach anything on the top shelf. A STEP LADDER WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT TO HAVE!

Most of the cookware was NOT CLEAN. And many of the glasses, cups, silverware was dirty also. We had to wash everything before we even considered using it. Except for 1 roasting pan, cookware was in bad shape with scratched Teflon, lids that didn’t fit and a mishmash of old cooking utensils.

Additionally (what really drove the 3 of us crazy) was all the cabinet doors and drawers had no draw pulls or features to open them easily. It was such a pain for such a small thing. ADDING PULLS/HANDLES AND YOU’D REALLY IMPROVE THE KITCHEN.

There were no garbage bags in the large kitchen garbage pail.

We were able to use the Huntley Lodge hottubs and pool and since it was across the street we changed in the Lodge bathroom.

Note: the loft was accessed using a rather small spiral staircase. No issue for us, but don’t even think about bring a large suitcase up/down it.

On half of the electrical outlets, only the top outlet worked ☹️.

But we really enjoyed skiing Big Sky!

2 weeks after our trip, me and my friends were hit with a $1600 bill for "damages" without any notice. After a slew of emails and calls, we were able to get in contact with the resort and found out that our damages were only about $400.

The rooms were not all that nice to begin with.

Stillwater is run by a bunch of scam-artists, and I would never recommend anyone to spend their hard earned money here.

The condominiums were not in the best of shape to begin with, but after our stay, there had been a few more minor damages to the room. After getting the bill, the room was charged for +$2,500 worth of damages, which for the damage was ridiculous. We were able to negotiate the cost down to a lower price, but we were still being taken advantage of. I would not recommend nor be staying at this location again. Look for other locations on the mountain.

The rooms are old, dilapidated and disgusting. A thorough cleaning and update is badly needed. Worse, however, is that the management company charged our credit card after we left claiming we had damaged the room (we hadn’t). To add insult to injury, the charges far exceeded to value of the supposed damage. Stay somewhere else.
