We stayed at the Alta ranch to celebrate my in laws anniversary for 4 nights...all 20 of us from different areas of the country. It was absolutely beautiful and I wouldn't change one thing about our experience! Our family required 4 of the cabins as we had 20 of us. The cabins are clean, and fully stocked with essentials and... More

Six of us visited Alta Ranch for a weekend in mid-February, and had a fantastic time! Katrin and Peter, our hosts, were wonderful - giving us tips on places to visit and hike (not as much snow right now), telling us a bit about the history of the area, and working with us to find a weekend that fit all...

We spent two nights at the ranch, one of which was my birthday. We had such a wonderful time. I wish we could have stayed longer! It was so peaceful and beautiful. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen and bathroom was clean and nice to use! The hummimgbirds outside on the deck were fabulous! We hoped to see more wildlife... More

Me and my buddies love fly fishing in Montana and have found the Bitterroot along with its East and West Forks are devoid of crowds with great fishing for wild cutthroat trout. Alta Ranch was recommended to us by Chuck Stranahan who owns a Fly Shop by the same name in Hamilton, MT. This was our second trip to fish... More

We have been to Alta Ranch every year for about the last 8 years. It feels like home. The physical beauty of this property defies words. When we left recently, I was awakened at dawn by a herd of elk passing beneath our cabin window, whistling and bugling. We fly-fish and so we spend most of our time on the... More

The Alta Ranch could not be better! My family and I love it so much that we go back for two week EVERY SUMMER and WINTER! The owners Katrin and Peter Spinetta are really very nice. Sometimes we see their family come from all over the united states for a family get-together, also both summer and winter. The Alta Ranch... More

We went here just for a short weekend getaway in the end of May. We were coming from 80+ degree weather, and were so excited when we found ourselves driving through a snow storm in the mountains just minutes away from the ranch! The cabins are so cozy! Cozy as in warm and welcoming, not tiny by any means. The... More

“If you are just a couple, the two smaller cabins will have plenty of room for you. Even small families will fit comfortably in them. Larger groups should opt for the other cabins, which have more than enough room to fit a pretty decent sized group.”
