We searched high and low to find the perfect location to have out Montana wedding. We had family and friends coming from all over the country and wanted to find a location where they could hike, have great meals, adventure and also visit Yellowstone. Rainbow Ranch provided that and sooooo much more. Many of our guest came early and stayed... More

We recently had our sons wedding at the Rainbow Ranch in Big Sky, MT. The rooms are lovely, each one a bit different...rustic, well appointed and oh, so comfy! The evening cookie delivery was a fabulous treat...we just felt so pampered! RR staff were exemplary in detail as well as communication. The food is fabulous and they ALL went out... More

We had a destination wedding at the Rainbow Ranch on August 29, 2014. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful everything was weeks later. The food (we had some foodies there that loved it) the service, the location and even the wedding cake (the pastry chef rocks) have all been talked about by our guests. We could not have... More

We held our rehearsal dinner at Rainbow Ranch a few years ago and we, along with all of our guests, LOVED it (the only reason we didn't get married there was because it was already taken!). We celebrated our anniversary this September and stayed in Ermine, a beautiful, rustic, but luxurious suite with fireplaces everywhere! Just to make the welcome... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry that you feel our lodge is lacking in service and respect. 1) You had an illegal bonfire on our Rainbow Ranch private property. Please note we did not call the Sheriff to report the illegal bonfire on private property. 2) You burned a unique wood cookie bread board that was custom designed & branded with... More

Spent four days here in early august. Appreciated the ways the lodge has manage to muffle the sound of the highway with running water everywhere. Stayed in the Osprey Suite which was spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately on arrival we noticed that house keeping had failed to clean the floor well - a previous guest must have spilled a soda on... More

Eagle Mount Bozeman brought a group of women wounded warriors to the Big Sky area this last week of August and were nothing but satisfied with our stay. The staff and accommodations were first class and they GRACIOUSLY donated our weeks stay. We had our own private cabin with 2 rooms for staff. This worked out fabulously and couldn't have... More

My husband, 3 yr old daughter and I stayed at Rainbow Ranch for a wedding. The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating!! The rooms couldn't have been better. We were surprised that our room was actually a suite and was perfect for our family. Not to mention the bathrooms were stocked with Molton Brown (my absolutely favorite!!!!). The staff was... More

Our family stayed a week here as a base for day trips to Yellowstone National Park, fly fishing and rafting. The staff was cheerful and very helpful in directing us to attractions and restaurants. The restaurant was expensive but the food was excellent. Breakfast is included in the room rate and was delicious. The property is maintained beautifully. We would... More

My daughter was married at the Rainbow Ranch Lodge on July 12, 2014 and I cannot praise the staff enough for providing her and our guests with a beautiful venue, a reception menu fit for foodies and outstanding service. If we asked it was done. Mollie and her staff know how to manage all the details involved in an out... More
