Just returned with my extended family, ages 9 to 78, from a lovely weeks getaway at the guest ranch. We all loved each and every one of the friendly staff, the out of the way location, and the just-right accommodations ( not too plush, or too rough). Lots of activities to take advantage of whether you like to watch, climb or ride nature. The Nature Conservancy and naturalist program is a terrific feature if you want to really learn and get into it (it was a highlight for me, and my 13 yr. Old son). We told them we wanted to keep it a secret, but it's worth a look if you are considering and have never been.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pine Butte Guest Ranch is located on Montana's spectacular Rocky Mountain Front. Hike or horseback ride along miles of mountain trails and then cool off in our sparkling solar heated pool. Your cozy, private cabin has its own fireplace, full bath and handmade furniture. Our sumptuous home-cooked meals are made from ingredients right out of the ranch garden or from local ranches...and the cookie jar and fruit basket are always well stocked! Since we're owned by The Nature Conservancy, we are dedicated to running the ranch with minimal impact on the land, but without sacrificing our guests' comfort. Bring the kids ...or just your inner child for a vacation you won't forget! ... more less
