I attended the Montana Cowgirl Quilt Retreat for the 9th time. Always fun, great food, friendly people, great riding and fishing. Love that there are no TVs or phones. There are other dude ranches nearby, but they sit right on the highway...this one is 5 miles down a dirt road. Views from the mountains you ride up are breathtaking. Wifi... More

My son and I went to Nine Quarter Circle Ranch and had a blast! Everyone was so nice. The other patrons staying there were mainly veterans of many years and took us in and treated us like family. The rides were beautiful and even though we were not experienced riders, we learned quickly. It is a fantastic place to bring... More

Great riding in wonderful mountain scenery. The cabins are rustic, though comfortable. Food is tasty and plentiful. Horses are strong and responsive. And the wranglers know their stuff. The ranch is in its second generation, family owned and operated. Wonderful for couples and families.

If you are really interested in getting your kids to unplug and create long lasting memories, I highly recomment Nine Quarter Circle Ranch. Our boys ages 14 & 15 had the time of their lives and are begging to go back. That's a pretty hard accomplishment with teenage boys! The ranch is all about riding horses, being out in nature...

This is my 3 rd visit to the ranch during the Cowgirl Quilt Retreat and it is always fabulous but this year seemed even better and I could not imagine what more they can do to make you feel at home. The ranch and staff are amazing and talented in their jobs. Great food , most comfy accommodations, ok.. I... More

Far off the beaten track is the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch. I have been going there every year for 20 years and can't think of another place I'd rather be. The owners/hosts are gregarious, the staff accommodating and fellow ranch goers are fun to associate with. There are many opportunities for various outdoor activities. Book a trip - you won't...

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
