In a beautiful Montana mountain setting the facility and especially the attentive and always cheerful and engaged staff enabled every one of us to absorb the Western experience. The cabins were well outfitted and attractively rustic. The food was consistently... More

We stayed 5 nights for a family trip and we felt like it was a ripoff. We chose based on 2 facts: past reviews and that it belongs to the Unique lodges of the world. Well we had stayed at other Unique lodges accross the world and Lone Mountain Range is just NOT great. Way overpriced for medium food and... More

The cabins that we stayed in were rustic but very comfortable..beds with the big down comforters were super cozy and cabins were serviced 2x a day..The restaurant and wait staff with Paul at the helm was beyond...

All around excellent experience! Cabins and food were top notch. Plenty of well coordinated activities for people of all ages. Great atmosphere for families. Fishing Guides and Wranglers were very patient and worked hard to make sure we had a lot of fun.

A pristine setting near Big Sky. Rustic hewn logs with gracious and wonderful accommodations. Wireless connections but no television, so step back from being inundated with media. Wood provided daily for the wood burning stove. Sit on the expansive front porch and look at the sun rising above the mountains. The dining hall and bar a sizeable cabin with delicious... More

We stayed at the ranch in July 2016 for 5 nights. We had the Lamedeer/Canyon cabin which was perfect to split between parents on one side and kids on the other. I loved the cabin's proximity to the dining room, main office and horse stable area. We also had the Ouzel cabin which was lovely. Ouzel works best for 2... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lone Mountain Ranch (LMR), situated on 148 acres in beautiful Big Sky, Montana, was first homesteaded in 1915 and has long been recognized as one of the premier guest ranch resorts in the country. The property consists of 30 rooms located within 24 unique cabins as well as a restaurant and saloon, pavilion, retail shop, equestrian facilities, and meeting spaces. Listed on the National Registry of the Historic Places, a member of the Dude Rancher's Association, an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, and once voted the #1 Nordic ski area in North America, LMR offers authentic accommodations, genuine Montana cuisine, exceptional service, and a stunning array of outdoor activities. Combine these attributes with close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky Resort, as well as Bozeman Airport, and we believe the LMR guest experience is unlike any other in the American West. ... more   less
