“Christmas in Big Sky @ Buck's T-4”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Buck's over Christmas week 2011. The staff was over-the-top helpful, room was very clean and reasonable & the free breakfast in the morning was OUT OF THIS WORLD.

If you love to ski, either downhill or nordic and you are contemplating a stop to Big Sky, do yourself a favor and make Buck's T-4 part of your trip. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Ask for the West building. Nice and quiet and close to the hot tubs!

Frequent skier at Big Sky...great room, awesome dining and an outdoor hot pool...yeh, not a tub a POOL. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was okay... I am a pancake eater and had to settle for waffles...J/K. For the money ya can't beat. FYI...the restaurant is pricey but the food and wine selection impressive.

Room Tip: Don't know if there are bad rooms, ours had a fantastic view...but the bathroom fan didn't w...

Buck's T-4 came at the recommendation of a friend familiar with Big Sky and the establishment. I trusted him implicitly and he was right. Succinctly, here is what you can expect. Clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent rates. Very accommodating staff. Proximate to skiing (15 minute drive) and the airport (45 minute drive). Terrific dining (get the Red Deer). I could go on and on. All I really need to say is that my family will return again and again. I have nothing but good things to say about Buck's T-4.

We were there during a very large wedding so it was pretty noisy, had to change rooms once and would have done so again if we had stayed a third night. When you have large groups of 20-30 year olds drinking lots of alcohol and all staying in same place, it can be obnoxious, although I enjoyed watching them in the bar. It was not the fault of the staff or facility. It would be nice if they housed them all in separate buildings as there are several, and did not mix in other guests.

Breakfast was basic cereal, instant waffles, oatmeal and basic potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon one day sausage the next, biscuits and gravy- but not fabulous as described by others. (try Red Lion in Seattle if you want fantastic breakfast buffet).

The restaurant food was good but pricey- very large portions so easy to share.

The staff was fantastic- super friendly and helpful. They seemed to be a real team.

There are benefits to being closer to the slopes- but I would still stay here to save $$. You can get a reduced rate if you mention frequent ski card and have one.

Room Tip: I would choose room at top floor on end away from exit stair.

Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for taking the time to share your experiences. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay here, though I am sorry to hear that our wedding guests negatively impacted your stay. I very much appreciate your patience and understanding about these circumstances.

I hope you'll stop by and say hello when you next come to use your Frequent Sky Card benefit. We offer the discount all season long to card holders.

Bucks T-4 is the best in Big Sky. rooms are extremely clean, with wooden floor entry way and clean carpet. But even better, are the spotless bathrooms! and the resteraunt...fabulous! Local beers, great wine and food to match. this place is what you picture Montana to be with the coblestone fireplace and wooden beams. Staff is very nice and helpful. I'm telling you this is the place to stay in Montana...on your way to Yellowstone Natl Park or up the street to ski at Big Sky- Buck's is the best!!!!

Room Tip: You can call from the airport in Bozeman to keep the kitchen open, because you are on yoru way- and...

We have just spent the weekend in Big Sky, Montana. The setting is spectacular, with fresh snow on Lone Mountain, trees changing to autumn colors and the air clear and crisp. They have an amazing breakfast buffet and the dinners both nights were exceptional. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious although not luxurious. They suited our needs perfectly since we didn't spend time in our rooms. I would highly recommend this Lodge for anyone coming to Big Sky any time of year.
