Buck's T-4 Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Big Sky Resort sells a "Frequent Ski Pass" for $49 if you buy it by Sept 30th. For that, Buck's
T-4 gives you a significant room discount for having this card (you also get reduced lift rates at the ski area, and probably some other discounts I don't use). Couple the discount with their "best hot and free breakfast before you go skiing" and Buck's T-4 is the best deal around. My
wife and I like to visit Buck's in the Spring before the tourists hit, and stay in one of their over sized rooms in the East wing. Again, best deal around.

Room Tip: My ski buddy and I always just rent a two-queen room, so can't offer any tips. It's all goo...

Good price for a nice basic hotel room- a little small but clean and nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good access to Big Sky Resort but about a 20 minute drive to skiing. There is a shuttle once an hour or so.

I had the pleasure of staying at Buck's T-4 for a business retreat but couldn't resist adding a few days for some leisure time. The business side was handled flawlessly thanks to their helpful co-ordinator. The included hot buffet breakfast was excellent. The restaurant is renowned in the area for excellent wild game dishes and dinners were outstanding despite resort pricing. No lunch served, unfortunately, so if you take a day off skiing plan to eat elsewhere. Local activities include skiing at Big Sky (of course) but also snowmobiling and nature treks through nearby Yellowstone. Room rates were reasonable considering included breakfast and wi-fi, and ski packages were available to save a few dollars. Overall, a great experience.

If you skiing the Big Sky area, this is a great place to stay. It is about 15 minutes to the ski hill. The ski, hotel package deal is a very good value. We found the staff to be very friendly, and helpful. The rooms are nice, spacious, and very clean. The decor is casual western. Our rate included hotel, skiing, and breakfast. They served a very large breakfast with lots of choices. They have two large hot tubs that are great after skiing. The restaurant is casual, good food, but a little pricy. We skied Big Sky, and toured Yellowstone by Snow-coach. I would recommend this place without hesitation.

Stayed at Buck's for a business retreat and tacked on some vacation time. Conference arrangements were fine. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room rate includes a hot buffet breakfast. There is free WiFi and a free bus service around the Big Sky area including the ski hill base area. All in all a very good value. We did all the winter activities in the area, skiing, trip to Yellowstone and snowmobiling. Buck's is centrally located for all these activities. A couple of issues are the restaurant doesn't serve lunch and there is no laundry service. I definitely recommend Buck's and would stay there again.

Buck's T-4 was part of lodging promotion with Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin. It is roughly 15+ minutes to Big Sky Resort day parking. We received an attractive discounted rate, that included full hot, buffet breakfast, quite nice. Room was warm, absolutely clean, granite sink counter, great linens, pillow top on mattress, nice furnishings, perfectly comfortable. We were quite please and would highly recommend. The only reason not rated excellent is the location. It is not really close to anything, although reasonable driving distance to Big Sky, Yellowstone, and Bozeman.

Room Tip: 2nd & 3rd floor get more sunlight

We have stayed here several times. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious with some outstanding views of the mountains when the clouds clear. It has a great location and with the breakfast buffet it,s the ideal place to stay for skiing Big Sky. After a day on the slopes enjoy wine in the large hot pools. A WINNER.

Room Tip: Ask for upper level close to the west end of the bunkhouse for ease of loading and unloading gear.
