We had an amazing dinner in the lodge and the service was fabulous! The food itself was really delicious - duck breast, scallops, chocolate pot de creme - all were well-presented and good. Our server was professional and really on top of things for our large group. There was a lively crowd in the main dining area but everyone was friendly. The rooms are clean but decent and there was a huge fire in the fireplace in the main lobby.

Buck's was a good find after 4 daysstaying up in the village at Big Sky. If you're looking for peace and quiet with no frills....Buck's is the place. Breakfast was included in the room which was good for fueling up before a full day on the mountain. Rooms are clean & spacious. Only issue is how there's no sink in the bathroom....just a shower and toilet. Sink is outside between the bathroom door and main door to the room. The hotel provides soap/shampoo, but it's dispensed from the wall like in a gym. There is a shuttle to/from the mountain but it's a long ride and sometimes requires a connection. The price is free so can't complain much.

My son and I planned a last minute skiing trip to Big Sky and picked Buck's T4 based on reviews on TripAdvisor. Our room rate included two lift tickets and a very nice full buffet breakfast. If you price both of those a full retail cost, we basically got the room for free. I believe reviews should be based on the value you receive and you really cannot beat the value at Buck's. The rooms are nice enough for the price, very clean and recently remodeled. Buck's is about 15 to 20 minutes from the Big Sky base area, which is no problem if you have a rental car, like we did. FInding decent restaurants in Big Sky was one of our trip challenges. Buck's has one of the better ones. We also liked the Gallatin River Grill, which is just done the street.

Room Tip: We were in one of their out buildings on the second floor. No real insight here. It worked well for...

Our reunion group has been here 3 times over the last decade. We love this place. They have everything: great rooms, the best hot tub, friendly staff, best breakfast, bar, restaurant. This time I stayed in an annex with a king bed and couch. It had a Montana view, large room, updated....just so comfy. There prices are awesome for what you get. I like this location better than on the mountain. It is just more cozy and fun.

Room Tip: King with sofa in Annex, quiet with view

My friend and I stayed for a week in January on a skiing trip. We usually stay at the hill in Big Sky, but decided to stay at Buck's. The lodge has an excellent restaurant and nice rooms. Try to local lamb; it's fab. The owner and his staff were especially helpful.

Room Tip: Choose a west facing room and go in the off-season.

Just got back from Buck's T4 for the 3rd time! Every time we go to Big Sky we stay at Buck's. The rooms are comfy, the staff is ALWAYS friendly and accommodating, and the food is outstanding. NOT your average Best Western by any means. Of course, it's been good for so long now, that it's not as easy as it used to be to get a table for dinner anymore, so you'd best have reservations.
Also, there are two enormous hot tubs for soothing sore muscles after skiing all day, and the hotel has lots of pet friendly rooms, for a very reasonable fee.
Buck's T4 has always been so good to us, I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: This trip I stayed in room 161, in the annex to the back of the complex. Nice and quiet back there...

I had an amazing stay at this lodge. The rooms were a lot bigger than I had expected and were overall very comfortable. Also, I would like to compliment the waitresses Anna and Rachel for their amazing customer service! I would definitely recommend staying at Buck's T-4 lodge.
