I was apprehensive about this 10-day vacation to the Big EZ in Big Sky. I usually have an entourage with me on vacations, consisting of my two daughters and their boyfriends, friends, etc. I decided to go this one alone - no sight-seeing, no beaches. The staff and other guests could not have made me feel more like a part of their family, but I had plenty of time and space on my own which was the purpose of the trip.
They picked me up at the airport at midnight, and upon discovering there was not a laptop in my room (unlike my last brief stay eight years ago), there was one installed by the time I returned to my room from breakfast the next morning. This was only the beginning of their comprehensive and courteous attention to service. I really don’t know where to begin to describe my ten days at the Big EZ.
My room was immaculate and I made it my home/office away from home/work for ten days. The food was amazing, and small portions were served at my request. Leftovers were made into incredible lunches for hiking the next day. Their wine list still makes me smile.
When I walked too far, they sent some one to pick me up; when I needed to get somewhere too far, they drove me with little to no notice, and I put in 5 to 20 miles of hiking/walking each day. Though I am not activity-oriented, the activities they coordinated had the best gear and guides I have ever experienced. John of East Slope Outdoors made a day of fly fishing on the Gallatin one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Polo is a great chef, Felicia a great server and hiker, and Jolene a great server and Pilates instructor.
Lava Lake and Storm Castle are two hikes you don’t want to miss. Ouzel Falls is also a nice little hike to warm up in higher elevations.
The Big EZ Lodge is an incredible destination; not one of the guests wanted to return home.
Thank you Jackie, Carey, Polo, Kevin, Jolene, Felicia, Chaz, Hannah, Jackson, Sue, Mark and Brett. Sorry if I missed anyone. Thank you for one of the best vacations ever,
