About the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch
Just 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park, we have spent over 80 years perfecting our rustic elegance on nearly 9,000 acres of beautiful rugged countryside in Montana’s Paradise Valley. We invite you to rejuvenate in one of our carefully restored one, two, or three bedroom cabins. Nestled among groves of Aspen and pine, our cabins feature stone fireplaces, large picture windows, and private decks that open to breathtaking mountain views. Our country charm is carefully balanced with modern luxuries, including fine gourmet dining, daily yoga classes, spa and massage services and a heated outdoor pool and hot tub.
Exposed to the wonders of nature, we offer a vast array of activities that engage children of all ages. With unique recreation opportunities that include lead rope horseback rides, field games, nature hikes, rock climbing and skeet shooting, your children will be delighted by the inventive and engaging activities created by our energetic staff.
For an unforgettable dining experience, just leave it to our chefs. Breakfast and lunch buffets are sumptuous spreads providing a variety of options for every taste, while dinners are gourmet three to five course plated affairs. Beef tenderloin, Halibut, and truffle Portabella pasta are just a few examples of our evening entrees, and we are happy to accommodate any special dietary needs. You’ll soon find that our meals are one of the most memorable parts of your stay at the ranch.
Whether it’s horseback riding in the high country, fly-fishing on our blue ribbon waters, or hiking through Yellowstone Country, we invite you to explore the vacation of a lifetime. Expect a warm and distinctive travel experience, which the whole family will beg to repeat.
“Possibly the greatest family holiday ever taken anywhere, any year, in the history of the world.”
