We stayed here 2 nights as part of our week in Yellowstone,. It was much nicer lodging and a much better value than the park options. It was easy to drive to Lamar at dawn and look for wildlife and then come back to the lodge for a yummy 8 o'clock breakfast. The trail ride they offer was awesome and... More

We had a fabulous time at the SGR. The food was excellent, the lodge was comfortable, the horses were great (I rode Jimmy and Mabel), the fishing was outstanding, and the guides were friendly and knowledgable. It is a warm family experience staying at SGR, and the scenery was spectacular. Victor, Luke, kids and family, thanks for a memorable and... More

We stayed at several places on our trip to Yellowstone and this was my favorite. The kids especially loved this place and wanted to stay a week. The rooms and lodge were nicely appointed. The staff were great and very helpful. The property has a barn and horses and lots of dogs for the kids to enjoy. We took a... More

I spent five days with the Jackson's at Skyline Guest Ranch. The room was large and well keep. The breakfast was great. Liz has something different each morning and all of it is good. Great folks to work with. I have been there two years in a row for five days each time. Loved both trips.

My husband and I wanted to stay in the Cooke City area after exploring Yellowstone NP. We also wanted to drive the Beartooth Highway, Chief Joseph Highway, Red Lodge, and visit Cody, Wyoming. Finding Skyline Guest Ranch met our needs and we stayed there for two nights. We stayed in the room on the top floor to the rear of... More

I found this gem of a place in the Yellowstone Lonely Planet book. Booking online was very easy, and so was the check-in. Our room, on the ground floor, was spacious and the bed was comfy. Definitely a nice stay after four days of car camping. I would highly recommend everyone staying here to go horseback riding. My fiance and... More

I was looking for a place to stay that was close to the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone. The ranch meets this need. I received additional experiences, I was not expecting. The ranch is right beside the horse barn. My husband suffered from allergies for days. You have to pay extra for wifi. There is no cell service here or in... More

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.
