Took my 17 year old daughter here for 4 night stay. Food was excellent and plenty of it. Service was really amazing. Each person we came across could not have been nicer and more engaging. I don't know how they stacked this place with such a quality staff. Horseback riding was fantastic. Able to take some "advanced" rides out alone... More

The ranch was absolutely beautiful, the food was excellent, and the activities were wonderful!! We had the best time here hiking, fishing, mountain biking, going to Yellowstone and Hebgen lake, and especially the riding. Enjoyed the chance to be able to go on rides where we could trot and canter as well. The wranglers were great! Thank you Sarah, Trevor,... More

The wranglers are doing a fantastic job leading trips for advanced riders. Not an easy challenge as many of guests are relatively new to western riding. I'm so glad you enjoyed your adventures on the ranch. Thanks for posting and enjoy the rest of your summer! More

I came with a large family, and one of the great things is, there are endless activities for all ages. These include hiking, canoeing, mountain biking, ballooning, a ropes course, a tram ride, nature trails, and fabulous meals. The best thing, though, was the service. Everyone who works there seemed eager not only to make things nice for each guest,... More

Tranquil and picturesque setting, truly helpful and courteous staff (Paul, Hilary, Taryn, Caroline, Mandy, my hiking guide Mike - thank you!), abundance of activities, and yes, phenomenal food. They really go out of their way here. Even the basics - bread, jam, donuts (homemade!), desserts, coffee, eggs, etc. were amazing. Burn your calories during the day so you can stock... More

If you like gourmet food and phenomenal service, this is the place for you. Paul is right there, making sure everything is perfect. The service is awesome and they truly hit it out of the park with the food: it's better than I've ever had at any resort or restaurant. We really appreciated how kid friendly the place was. Mom...

You can't beat this place. Stunningly gorgeous environment, amazingly friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable amenities, delicious food, a vast array of exciting activities, and all very kid-friendly. We were a family of nearly 50, including 15 kids, and we all enjoyed a spectacular week in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Very very highly recommended.

My wife and I have been coming to LMR for several years now, and love it more each year. Many of the cabins underwent renovations in the off season, and are absolutely beautiful. While there is a fair bit of staff turnover year to year (as is typical on a ranch), there is no compromise in guest experience. To an... More

Rooms are rustic but cozy. FOOD is fantastic. And the bar has some sweet drinks....and the ski shop is helpful and competent. So, in other words, enjoy yourself and the cross country skiing. The good news is you don't have to drive back to your hotel after a lovely meal. The skiing equipment is worth renting--what a hassle free vacation.... 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
