My daughter and I went for some R&R and mother/daughter time in June. Hospitality was wonderful...and the balance of family time and adult/kid time is really nice. Great hosts... great place...incredible scenery. Highly recommended.

We went as a family with three children ranging from 16 to 21 years. We all had the most fabulous holiday. An amazing place. Superb staff and fellow guests. Wonderful horses, in an amazing location. We had limited riding experience - some no riding experience - but this was not a problem. You group yourself according to your ability and... More

We had a lovely time at this dude ranch in Montana. I was slightly concerned that it would be too family orientated but the kids added to the fun and there was plenty of adult time. Everything was done to make us feel welcome and the setting of the ranch in a valley 20 minutes from the main road is... More

I am a single mother and I brought my 7 year old son to this ranch. We had a truly fantastic week. It was a quiet week during our visit, only 18 guests. At first I was disappointed, thinking this would minimize the fun my son had. Just the opposite happened. He had the most fun and on the two... More

Simply the best - if you are looking for a ranch holiday, particularly with children (of whatever age), then look no further - it could not be done better. Also the secluded location, way away from the main highway, is perfect.

This summer was my third trip up to 9 Quarter Circle and I was not disappointed. The Kelseys do a fantastic job running the ranch and take you on beautiful rides into the surrounding mountains. Lodging is nice and cozy with wood stoves and the food is very delicious.

What a wonderful, breath taking beautiful place--run by a wonderful family and outstanding Staff. Our visit was nothing short of "a taste of Heaven". We will cherish the memories always and hope to one day return for another visit.

After 10 years and running, our family still considers the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch as our home away from home for one week each year. My wife and I thank our blessings that we found a place so perfectly suited for our family. Each of our five children have grown up looking forward to this week of horseback riding, fishing,...

We had never been to a dude ranch before, so weren't 100 percent sure what to expect when we arrived at Nine Quarter Circle ranch this summer. All I can say is that it was a fantastic experience. The family that runs this place couldn't be more friendly and inclusive, the food was great, the setting was as "authentic" as... More
