The house was ok. We had technical issues with the TV remotes couldn’t watch TV the first night, bed linen needs upgrading, and long walk to bring groceries in the house. Outside of the few things the house was ok.

Hi Terri. We appreciate your feedback and we sincerely apologize for any issue you experienced during your stay with us. We will be sure to pass this information concerning the TV's and bedding to the homeowners for future improvements to the home. Otherwise we do hope your stay with us was good and to have the opportunity to rent to you again for a better rental experience. Madison, Railey Vacations

Great house. Fit 14 of us very comfortably. We had a great time. Only two not-so-good things ..... We only had about 10 bath towels. And the propane tank for the grill did not work (valve was seized). We paid to swap it to use the grille. Did not know to save a receipt for reimbursement.

Hi Terry! We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your feedback. We are sorry to hear the miscommunication concerning the receipt for the propane and the shortage of towels. In the future please call into our office and we can quickly bring out more towels. Thank you and we hope to see you again in the future! Madison, Railey Vacations

Will DEFINITELY Rent Again

Reviewed on 2022-03-13 by Daryl

Big Sky has to be one of the best homes I have ever rented. The house was full of fun things to do with the family including shuffle board, pool, ping pong, and board games. Another big stand out was we finally rented a house with everything one would need in a kitchen. It can be frustrating having to bring standard items on vacation so that you can cook a good meal. The walk was a breeze to the slopes and we loved that it was on a Black Diamond but had immediate access to the beginner and blue trails too. The other family that joined us and rented a couple houses away also loved our house and kept finding themselves coming over for a quick game of shuffle board. Definitely the house to rent multiple times to enjoy Wisp.

This is so great to hear, Daryl! We’re glad to know Big Sky met all of your needs and expectations, and we can’t wait for you to visit again. See you next time! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The house was really great. Several additional fun amenities really made the stay more enjoyable (pool table, yard games, shuffle board, etc). There were a few minor maintenance issues we reported on the check out paper. The only "complaint" was that of the previouse tenants. They left the outside in a bit of disarray. There were used cigar butts and some trash on the property. I understand that the clean up staff probably doesn't have time to address outside cleanliness but it was a little disappointing that the previouse vacationers weren't more considerate. Again, nothing that Railey or the homeowners can control. We will definitely rent this house again in the future.

We're so glad you had a great time overall, Paul! Thanks for alerting us to the state of the outdoor area - we'll have our team take a look to make sure everything is in good condition. We're sorry this inconvenience arose during your stay but are happy that it didn't detract from your fun. We can't wait to have you back in the future! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
