This authentic ranch gives you the opportunity to travel back in time and stay in luxurious log cabins with fireplaces and amenities that feel like western life the way you would want it to be. Separate cabins are spread throughout the property, offering so many styles and choices you are hard pressed to pick just one. Decorated with quilts and...

We have just completed a one-week wintertime visit to the Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, bringing three families together for an unforgettable experience for all. A family reunion, our families came for the downhill skiing at Big Sky, and the team at Lone Mountain made sure we experienced the best Big Sky has to offer. We enjoyed first-class treatment...

I can't say enough superlatives for this Ranch and its staff, the experience was superb from all aspects. The food was excellent from breakfast to dinner, especially baked goods!, and the staff was amazing, nothing was too much trouble and everyone goes out of their way to make your stay special.

Thank you for posting such fine compliments about the ranch team! As you experienced there is a lot happening at the ranch and I'm lucky to work with a group with such a wide range of talents.

My stay at LMR wasn't long enough! The seemingly endless trails available from the door to the cabin are beautifully groomed and well marked/maintained. I enjoyed my extended period on the "Kids Loop"! Breakfast at LMR shouldn't be missed, even if you are not hungry, drop in and visit with Miss Kate, she is a joy to visit with. Kate...

Wonderful praise all around! I'm in total agreement with you regarding Chef Gruber, Kate and Edwin - they do a fantastic job and what's more they are very special people.

I don't have words for how much we enjoyed our stay at Lone Mountain Ranch. The staff is incredible. The food is TO DIE FOR. My husband and I got so spoiled! Plus, you can't beat the natural beauty of the place. We rode horses, toured Yellowstone, and fly fished. Our guides were so knowledgeable and felt like old friends....

My wife and I are sadly leaving the LMR after a five night stay and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it. The cabins have the rustic feel you want in a Montana vacation but with all the creature comforts you would expect from a top notch resort. I will miss waking up every morning and starting a...

It was great to meet you and I'm so glad the ranch is your kind of place. Over the years I've found it's usually a combination of factors that produce best moments on the ranch. The hallmark experiences; like visiting Yellowstone or learning to fly fish, are always seem more memorable because of the connections made between the guests and...

We originally chose Lone Mountain because we wanted to avoid the cookie-cutter / corporate experience of the on-mountain, ski resort hotels & condos --we wanted a more authentic mountain experience embedded in the natural landscape. It was the right choice. Even though Lone Mountain was traditionally known as Nordic & snow shoe center they now offer a very convenient concierge...

Best ski resort hands down! This is a ski in ski out resort. We spent 4 incredible nights. The staff were delightful. The cabin was comfortable and spacious. The food was excellent. The sleigh ride is a must! We are going to make this an annual trip.

I stayed here for one night at the end of a National Geographic tour. I was traveling with a friend, but we were not rooming together. I stayed in the Rainbow cabin and she was next door, in Grayling. When I sneezed, she texted "bless you". Funny, but not. Aside from the thin shared wall, the cabin was cozy. The...

Respectfully, I want to take this opportunity to say we are very proud of Bruce Anfinson. He's been a fixture on the Sleigh Ride Dinner for nearly 20 years, he is Montana native, a talented songwriter, and in my opinion, a perfect fit with the experience we want to provide. That being said, I appreciate your perspective and I'm disappointed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lone Mountain Ranch (LMR), situated on 148 acres in beautiful Big Sky, Montana, was first homesteaded in 1915 and has long been recognized as one of the premier guest ranch resorts in the country. The property consists of 30 rooms located within 24 unique cabins as well as a restaurant and saloon, pavilion, retail shop, equestrian facilities, and meeting spaces. Listed on the National Registry of the Historic Places, a member of the Dude Rancher's Association, an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, and once voted the #1 Nordic ski area in North America, LMR offers authentic accommodations, genuine Montana cuisine, exceptional service, and a stunning array of outdoor activities. Combine these attributes with close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky Resort, as well as Bozeman Airport, and we believe the LMR guest experience is unlike any other in the American West. ... more   less
