Why Choose Stay Montana

Chris and Jen Torsleff founded Stay Montana in 2016, bringing over 55 years of combined hospitality and resort property management experience gained from working for great companies like Vail Resorts, Ritz Carlton, Hilton and Marriott.

We are proud of the fact we started out in positions of bellman and busser and worked our way to key leadership roles in some of the most respected companies in the hotel and resort industry.

Those years of training and experience in the hospitality business, coupled with a passion and focus on building guest loyalty, has made Stay Montana the fastest growing vacation rental company in Southwest Montana. These core principles have yielded substantial income growth for their property owners who previously used other long-established management companies in Big Sky.

We were always taught to focus on the guest first and performance results will fall into place. Our service speaks to the success of our vacation rentals, which is more powerful than location or finishes.

Our passion for excellence and creating amazing experiences for our guests inspired the startup of Stay Montana. After 25 plus years in corporate America, we both knew they could make more meaningful impacts on the guest experience and owner partnerships—two things we are most passionate about.

Personal connections and relationships with our owners and guests are what drive us to be better every day. It’s important to us to be ‘very personal’ in what can be a very transactional industry.

Married at The Moonlight Lodge 17 years ago, they continue to enjoy mountain life in Big Sky country.

Our son loves ski racing with the Big Sky Ski Team and playing soccer for Gallatin Elite Soccer Club. Our daughter loves skiing, horseback riding and baking her signature cookies for all our guests. She created a unique Chocolate Chip Caramel cookie recipe and each guest gets a bag of freshly baked cookies when they arrive. She values the concept of a warm welcome and adds a little sweet to go with it.

The company has deep ties to the Southwest Montana: Having owned and managed rental properties in Big Sky and Bozeman for more than 20 years, its owners and their family have enjoyed many days of skiing, hiking and fishing in the Gallatin Valley.

Being owners of property in Big Sky taught us to leave the ‘nickel and diming’ behind for a simple performance-based fee model. We love getting owners who are tired of being charged for a light bulb or being told when they can use their property! We say, ‘it’s your property, use it when you want, and we will generate income for you when you aren’t there.’ We will continue to grow our business in these communities through strong partnerships so that we can remain for years to come and leave this legacy for our children to continue!

With local offices in Big Sky Town Center and also just south of Four Corners in the Bridge District, Stay Montana invites you to stop in and learn more.
