My best friend and I have just come back from a week at the Lonesome Spur Ranch, and I have to say I have had the best time of my life. Elaine and Lonnie opened their home up to me and made me feel so very welcome. The riding and scenery is out of this world, rode around the hill... More

Thank you once again to Lonnie, Elaine, Mike and Luke for a great holiday. I have been lucky enough to be travelling to the Lonesome Spur Ranch for some years now and it gets better and better. I would like to point out here that this is a Working Ranch and not a guest or dude ranch. I go to... More

Good rancher, good horses, but no attention to guests. None of the advertised activities were available, no cow work, only nose-to-tail riding. The host was nowhere, not even having supper with the guests. We left after three days of a planned six day vacation. Too bad after a long trip from Europe.

A stunning location and wonderful rides so can't say I didn't enjoy the holiday - The ride with Cathy and Kevin the absolute highlight and the most wonderful people - felt safe and confident in their company - However the organization and general facilities left a lot to be desired - Cabins compact and poorly furnished - lack of drawer/hanging...

We were very excited by this holiday and although we had a good time was it the holiday of a life time - no. If you are going for a comfort filled holiday forget it. Accomodation is comfortable but basic, a chair in our room had been mended with tape and a throw put over it. We had to empty... More

A truely warm welcome from pick up in Billings, 'cowboy' shopping and a great ranch experience. We went with 3 children (18, 16 and 14) of whom 2 were riders. All levels of riding proficiency catered for and there was never any cajoling...... I was a poor rider and apart from pulling my leg no bad comments can be made.... More

I had a fabulous time at Lonesome Spur. Lonnie, Elaine, Jack and Carter welcome and involve you so that you feel like family rather than a guest. Home worries rapidly become a distant memory as the ranch weaves its magic. I got to experience ranch life and got a better understanding of horses and how to work with them. They... More

Just want to say thanks to Lonnie and Elaine for another wonderful holiday in Montana. As you can see from the photos's we had mixed weather but it was such fun to ride in the snow to find the 'lost cattle'! I can't wait to get back in June to go on there 'Indian ride' following the route Custer took... More
