I just got back from a long weekend in Big Sky and stayed at Buck's with my husband and a group of our friends.
We were in town for a wedding at the Rainbow Ranch down the road, and Bucks was a great option for 10 of us to stay for location and price.
It is not a fancy place or a resort, but the rates are very affordable, the location is an easy drive to everything, and the food is delicious.
Our room, while basic, was perfectly clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed eating the included breakfast every morning and were impressed by the level of service from the staff at breakfast. They clearly enjoy giving everyone a delicious, hearty meal before the start of busy active days.
We also ate dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed our meals. The people working at the restaurant were even kind enough to drive us to and from Corral that night so we could go out to the local bar without having to drive. It was a really personal level of service that was so appreciated.
We had such a great time on this trip and we're thankful to the staff at Buck's for their help in making it such a special experience. If you're not looking for a luxury marble tiles and five star resort type environment and you're comfortable with more of a rustic, affordable lodge, this is an amazing option in a stunningly gorgeous part of the state/country/world.
