Enjoy a Montana family vacation in the wilderness north of Yellowstone Park. It’s a chance to experience breathtaking scenery, nature at its best, and our western culture filled with history and hospitality.

Scheduling or added costs won’t be a concern during your all-inclusive vacation. Check out our rates which include meals, lodging, and a variety of ranch activities guided by qualified ranch staff:

Horseback riding experience is not required. For many this will be your first time on a horse! Your horse for the week will be matched to your riding ability. Some riding instruction is given before your first morning horseback ride, and additional instruction and practice is available in the arena during the week. You will feel comfortable on the scenic trail rides under the guidance of our skilled wranglers.

Fly fish the pristine Boulder River for rainbow, cutthroat, or brook trout from our ranch access. Learn fly fishing techniques during instruction at our trout pond that can become a life-long skill to enjoy.

Ride our 6×6 truck to the mountain tops. Explore a glacier lake, hike to the top of Monument Peak reaching an elevation of nearly 11,000 feet, and check out the old gold mining ruins and ghost town of Independence. So much Western history spreads over this entire mountain region.

Scenic rafting on the Yellowstone River gives you a chance for viewing wildlife and eagles on historic waters traveled by William Clark in 1806. Kids “of all ages” have a go at tubing through the clear waters of the Yellowstone.

Hiking the mountain trails, flower-laden meadows, and scenic lookouts takes us to uncomplicated times of relaxation and appreciation of the natural surroundings. June is a time when flowers are “busting out all over” as it is springtime in the Rockies.

Cowboy cookouts, campfires, and comradery are enjoyed after experiencing the busy day’s ranch activities. Your family will eat meals with ranch staff and owners, and of course with the new friends met during the week. Warm personal hospitality is possible as part of our small guest capacity and will let you quickly feel a part of our ranch family.

A frequent comment from past guests is “this was the best vacation we have ever taken”. We work hard to be the best that we can be at sharing the ranch experiences and life style that you should get the chance to enjoy.
