Simplicity is pure luxury. I've stayed at Elkhorn Ranch 3 times now. It is all in the details and the staff at Elkhorn Ranch have them all covered. From sun up and stoking the wood fire in your cabin to sun down with a gourmet meal cooked on a trail campfire. While we were not traveling with kids I was... More

I just spent a week at Elkhorn Ranch with 4 friends. It was our first visit. I've been back home now for two days but *sigh* my head and heart are still in Montana. The other reviews are all accurate so I won't repeat those details. I will say, however, that the Elkhorn family is a very special group of... More

I believe a truly successful ranch vacation is about stepping back into time, getting dirty and experiencing the adventures of being out west, out doors, in the mountains and on horseback! It is the best family vacation you'll ever take - your kids will confirm it! Honestly, I was convinced that the more time we spent with our kids, the... More

aThe Elkhorn Ranch is the best the West. It's authentically rustic but totally comfortable. They make a special point to thoroughly taking care of all your needs. The food is gourmet and substantial. The steak and trout dinner in a mountain meadow at the end of a trail ride was amazing. All the trail rides were gorgeous. The wranglers take... More

Every day you wake up excited for what that day brings. It might be riding on your personal horse for the week through amazing Montana scenery or going for a mountain hike through the crisp air or spending an afternoon driving to old faithful geyser. Grand Prismatic Spring on your way to old faithful is a must. It is like... More

The Elkhorn Ranch is an experience that is _not to miss_! The staff, amenities, lodging, and scenery and setting allow you to leave the world behind, but you don't need to leave the joys of eating well and having a great time. There is (blessedly and fantastically!) no cell coverage, and wifi can be had around the office (there's a... More

Staying a week or two at the Elkhorn Ranch is an experience like none other you will have. It's a magical place somehow suspended in time surrounded by the awesome scenery of the beauiful American wilderness. The horseback rides are guaged to your ability and you get to ride into realms unseen by most Americans and experience wildlife first hand.... More

This is an amazing experience. The crew and wranglers are exceptional, the food is fantastic. The horses are safe and well cared for, the cabins are rustic while being comfy and roomy. The other guests are also quite interesting and it is nice to interact with them. There is also a great program for the kids - if you want... More

We found Elkhorn Ranch by chance, but were so lucky! A girlfriend and I brought our kids (7 of us in total) to Elkhorn this last week. We were about the only people at the ranch on our first visit. We ate and rode and played games with multiple generation families who have been going for years-- and yet everyone... More
