We had booked to stay at this ranch for three nights. On arrival we met the owner Liz who booked us in and took payment. There were no pleasantries asking about our trip nor any information as to amenities in the area. She then gave us our key and left us. Our room was quite dark We were so disappointed... More

We have stayed with Liz and Vic Jackson numerous times throughout the past 3 years and are NEVER disappointed. Skyline Guest Ranch is in such an idyllic spot- so beautiful with its Swiss-styled lodge, pine forest & meadow & adjacent barn and corrals with their horses & mules. Every time we stay there it feels like we've come back home.... More

We actually had ten people in our group and booked two rooms. Very nice and accommodating hosts! Delicious and very well presented breakfasts! Neat lodge type decor. There were children with us and they were welcome along with the adults.

The owner's are very friendly, very personable, very accommodating . . . it was a great place to stay! Very beautiful area. We didn't get a chance to go horseback riding, it just didn't work into our schedule. Loved it there!!

Located really close to one of the entrances into Yellowstone National Park. Log home in a beautiful area. Nice accommodations. Great breakfasts provided each morning. Welcoming but not intrusive hosts. They also have their own horses although we didn't make use of them on this trip.

My partner and I stayed at this beautiful ranch for 3 nights. As we are from Asia, we didn't know what to expect as it was our first time being in this part of the States. I have to say that staying here was a wonderful "American country" experience and I am glad I chose Skyline Ranch. Liz and Vic... More

We absolutely love staying at the skyline guest ranch when we snowmobile in the winter months. Victor and Liz are wonderful people and very accommodating. We have two little girls that call this "their cabin" :-) They absolutely love going. It's so convenient and cozy. We've never had an issue. Liz is an amazing cook, everything is always clean and...

This is the best bed and breakfast experience we've ever had, the owners are amazing, the food is top rate while the lodge is warm and inviting. Incredible location, close to Yellowstone National Park, beautiful scenery and some of the worlds best snowmobiling! If you are ever planning a trip near Cooke City, definitely plan a stay with Liz and... More

We spent 5 wonderful days at Skyline in September at this fabulous lodge. Rustic beauty coupled with down home hospitality and first class gourmet breakfasts make Skyline a "must return" destination. Our trail ride with wrangler Luke was over the top - of the mountain, that is! We've been riding for 50+ years, and this was our most memorable ride.... More

The Jackson family has helped us with backcountry horseback travel and pack mules for three years in row. We have also stayed at their delightfully cozy and comfortable lodge. Liz is a great cook and she also does a superb job at making the guests feel at home. Vic is highly skilled and so patient in working with unskilled horse... More
