Our family had a wonderful time at Lone Mountain Ranch. The staff is incredible making you feel very welcome. It was great not having to worry about meals and there was always plenty of activities. My daughter did the teenage camp out and made some wonderful friends. The kids program was great for the preschoolers and elementary aged. Our family... More

A 'great family vacation' is precisely what we had hoped you would experience during your recent stay at the ranch. Thank you for your thoughtful feedback on our staff and experiences, especially regarding the variety of activities, including the outdoor youth adventures. The teenage camp-out is a popular event, and we are consistently working on adding activities for all age... More

We've been home for 2 weeks and we miss LMR so much. We loved our vacation. The staff is amazing and work so hard to make it a wonderful experience. The kids program blew us away.

My kids both cried themselves to sleep on our last night, devastated to leave their new friends, their beloved horses, the energetic and loving counselors and wranglers, our adorable cabin, and the stunning landscape. Whoever hires the staff here does an amazing job selecting people who genuinely love the ranch and are eager to share that love with guests. The... More

We visited LMR from Australia for a family adventure holiday. We are a family of 3, with a 10 year old daughter. WOW what a place! We were excited as the website promised that LMR was going to be great. The reality was even better! The location is so beautiful it's difficult to believe its real. Beautiful log cabins, forest,...

Lone Mountain was part of a three week holiday of a lifetime trip to the USA for us. Without doubt it was the highlight of our trip. The scenery is stunning, the ranch is beautiful and the experience provided by the staff was truly outstanding. We rode horses, hiked, visited Yellowstone Park, canoed and enjoyed BBQ, live music, outdoor breakfast,... More

Our group of 15 was very active and we hurried to fill our days with assorted activites as soon as we arrived. There is so much to do and so many options. We rode horseback, fished, hiked, kayaked, zip lined, and loved the chuckwagon breakfast at the corral and children's rodeo. The children's program was outstanding and our children ages... More

My 14-year old nephew and I visited Lone Mountain Ranch for a week visit during the summer and loved everything about it. It's great place to have a family vacation. The ranch allows for the perfect number of guests, keeping it smaller, so it almost feels like you're at an extended family gathering. The meals in the dining hall are... More

I have worked in the Guest Ranch industry for over 45 years and it is the perfect solution to a multi-generational vacation. It offers a atmosphere of intimacy that leads to relationship building.

This was our second winter week at Lone Mountain Ranch, returning after a good visit in 2012. While there are condos, etc. at Big Sky Mountain Village, Town Center, etc., staying at LMR affords access to Big Sky skiing and other activities, but also a sense of staying in the wilderness. And ski out your door access to 85 KM... More

I am tempted to offer ATLhiker a job in our marketing department as a copy writer. For a winter guest of Lone Mountain, he pretty wells spells out the experience and activities we offer. Our new owners are planning to offer our guests their own shuttle to downhill skiing in winter of 2014 - 2015. Thank you for the review. More
