I looked online and chose LMR for it's Orvis and NatGeo rankings. So glad I did! We had an amazing time! We purchased the Discovery Package, which included all meals and activities except for fly-fishing. The lodge offers many activities and worked with us to make sure we were able to do everything on our wish list within a 4... More

Nestled into a high meadow beneath Lone Mountain, this guest ranch has ruggedly beautiful grounds and a high-ceilinged lodge with good food. Although they have plenty of horses we did not ride. We were 12 active 55-year old women (college friends) having a reunion. We hiked every day and had a 1-day tour of Yellowstone with a guide from Lone... More

My 2 daughters and I stayed at Lone Mountain Range last August and we absolutely loved it. I have a 5 and 10 yrs old and we enjoyed every minute. They have tons of activities for kids and adults (fishing, horseback riding, hiking, zip lining, etc.). The kids’ activities are very well organized and the staff is very friendly. The... More

I’m not sure I can find the right words to describe just how amazing our Montana vacation at LMR was this summer. We stayed for a week in mid-August, and we can’t wait to go back. We were a big group – 16 family members ranging in age from 13 to 80. We were celebrating my father-in-law’s birthday, and the... More

For our first trip away from our daughter, we debated laying on a beach and sleeping, but decided instead to indulge in the activities we missed most since she was born. We wanted to ride horses, fish, hike -- but we wanted to be in a comfortable luxurious setting where we could rest well at night. LMR delivered! Great full... More

We often hear the ranch is an incredible (and pleasantly surprising) alternative to the beach... So happy it worked out this way you! It was a joy to read about your experience, I particular liked the part about John Hall - he's been with the ranch for over 20 years and he is a true pro. Thank you for sharing... More

My wife and I spent 4 full days there with our retriever, which was a key decision factor for us. The fishing is great. We spent 3 days floating the Madison and caught lots of fish -- Rainbows, Browns , Whites, and Cut Throats. Fishermen should be aware that the Madison is 1.5 hours away and the Yellowstone is 2...

I'm thrilled you found what you were looking for at the ranch. It's really encouraging to see your fishing was productive. The low water this season made for a bit of a challenge, as some of the closer streams haven't been fishing as well, but we always have the Madison and for that we are very fortunate. I hope you'll... More

Character (place, people, activities) with Service (activities, people). Food was very good, fishing was okay (not the best time of year for trout in August). Everyone was very personable, service-oriented. Not as remote as one might think.

I'm really glad you enjoyed your visit - especially the character of the ranch and the quality of our people. It wasn't that long ago August was a prime time for fly fishing but in recent seasons low water and hot temps have slowed things down. The better fishing is happening in June, July, and Sept.

We held a family reunion for 25 people at LMR and could not have been happier. The food was fantastic. They organized a private picnic for the 25 of us on the grounds.

Do not have one bad thing to say about Lone Mountain Ranch. Not only were they able to cater to our need but housed all the guest to our wedding as well.

As a lover of the outdoors (and if you love to ski) you might consider return trip in winter - we offer downhill and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, backcountry tours of Yellowstone, sleigh ride dinners, and more -the "on-the-snow" experience puts a whole new spin on ranchlife that makes for a really incredible vacation.

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
