Lone Mountain Ranch

A clear mountain stream runs through the middle of the Ranch, which sits in a small valley at the base of the mountains near Yellowstone National Park. The Ranch provides a warm, relaxed western atmosphere with just the right creature comforts to help guests "get away from it all" in their special Ranch home.

Summer is family time at the Ranch, with activities for all ages. Explore mountain ranges atop a horse - truly a western adventure. Join guided hikes for all ability levels and learn about the wildlife, wildlfowers, geology and history of this part of the world. Tours into Yellowstone give guests a unique perspective on the natural wonders of our first national park and the birds and wildlife living there. Mountain biking, sea kayaking and canoeing are another way to experience the world around Big Sky. The Ranch's Outdoor Youth Adventures Program (for children ages 4-18) leaves kids begging to come back each year.

Meal times are special at the Ranch - a time to savor wholesome, flavorful cuisine and enjoy the camaraderie of other guests, many of whom become lifelong friends. Summer outdoor BBQ's are a fun time to sit under a Montana sky and enjoy some delectable  western ranch fare. In the winter, guests are treated to outdoor trail buffets and memorable dinner sleigh rides during their week.

Whether it is Nordic skiing on 85km of exceptional ski trails or 30km of snowshoe trails, world class downhill skiing or exploring Yellowstone National Park's amazing winter wonderland on backcountry ski tours, or fly-fishing on the rivers, the Ranch is the perfect base for discovering Yellowstone Country in the winter months, too.

The Ranch has all of the creature comforts as well. Cozy log cabins with featherbeds, down comforters and western furnishings provide a comfortable home away from home in the mountains of Montana.

We invite you to visit our home in Montana during the summer,fall, or winter to experience the Lone Mountain Ranch brand of vacation magic.

Ranch Dining

Our cuisine is inspired by the bounty of the Northwestern Rockies and takes advantage of locally produced offerings when possible and prepared to satisfy the kind of appetite that develops after exploring the outdoors. Breakfasts typically unfold with the likes of flax seed waffles, local bacon and Hutterite eggs while dinner may include such Northern Rocky Mountain cuisine as Kobe beef, elk and vegetarian options that exceed even the most grandiose expectations.

Ranch Activities

Located just 18 miles from Yellowstone Park, the Ranch is the perfect place to experience the beauty and endless recreational opportunities of southwest Montana. Our naturalist program leads hikes, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, canoe trips and guided tours into Yellowstone. Children ages 4-18 experience nature and adventurous activities.  
Or, try your hand at fly fishing with our Orvis endorsed guides on legendary Montana blue ribbon trout streams. Winter Nordic and alpine ski vacations.

Ranch Lodging

Your home in Montana is a comfortable, cozy log cabin with western furnishings, a woodstove, featherbeds and patchwork quilts. For large family groups, our luxurious Ridgetop Lodge (up to 18 people) has a wonderful Great Room for gathering by a fire, a recreation room with pool table and a huge deck and hot tub with views of the surrounding mountains that can't be beat.

The B-K is our cozy guest lounge with a huge fireplace, library and family games where you can relax away from your cabin.
