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

Let me start by saying I totally understand where all the 5-star reviews are coming from. We research ranches heavily on TA after deciding we wanted to take this sort of a vacation off a friends recommendation. NQCR had great reviews and was reasonably accessible with a reasonable price. We had an amazing time riding the horses and the cabins... More

The Nine Quarter Circle Ranch is a perfect place to come, relax and bond with family. Many of the nearby ranches are located close to the busy highway, but not this one. It's nestled in a beautiful valley that is several miles from highway. You will see or hear very few cars during your stay. This remote location (part of... More

We stayed at Nine Quarters for a week in mid June (their first week of the season). It was very uncrowded (one other family) and the weather wasn't warm (it actually snowed on us on a few rides). Overall an amazing week, and Kim, Kelly, and Kameron were all great hosts. Kids loved riding and chasing bunnies (and the play... More

We took our two young boys to Nine Quarter Circle Ranch last August. It was part of a several week road trip in America and by far the highlight of our trip. It was a magical and unique 'Summer Camp for the Family', far surpassing my already high expectations from reading past reviews. Our boys (3 and 2 years) still... More

For our first dude ranch experience I picked this one as the best in Montana based on a ton of research, with the most important criteria being the physical Marlboro commercial-worthy beauty of the ranch and its authenticity both in people and 'get away from it all' location. It exceeded expectation. It is 6th generation Montana family owned, who spend... More

The trip advisor reviews are so on par with our recent experiences at Nine quarter Circle ranch. My daughter is an avid rider, my husband a fly fishing enthusiast, and I like to relax and enjoy nature. The ranch is within 45 minutes to Yellowstone so this was a perfect choice. We flew into SLC, Utah and drove through the... More

This was a dream come true trip for my husband and I. Three of our passions, quilting, horses & fly fishing all wrapped up into one fantastic week. Cozy cabins, 5 star meals, well trained responsive horses, serene streams and quilting with two fantastic teachers. Definitely would recommend this trip to anyone and hope to go back soon.

If you are looking for a place to get away from it all - this is it. Beautiful scenery, fantastic food, friendly hosts, cozy log cabins.... and horses too! I attended the Quilter's Retreat 2013 and can't think of a single thing that would have made the trip better for me. Thank you!

Nine Quarter Circle Ranch has been doing it right for all of the fifty years I have been vacationing there. Fabulous horse rides through the most beautiful country! A pack trip if you like. Fly fishing that challenges the best. A fun little rodeo at the end of the week where we all apply the horsemanship we have learned, if... More
