#2 of 10 in Big Sky
Travelers' Choice
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.

Our time at Lone Mountain Ranch was fabulous! We fed carrots to the horses as soon as we arrived, which was so great! The vibe by the stables was so lovely; fire pits going, people wandering around with drinks, petting horses… We decided we needed some pre-dinner drinks ourselves, so we stopped by the bar, where we were greeted by Brien! He was super friendly and made us feel welcome while he made our delicious cocktails. After finishing our cocktails, we headed up to dinner. Chris greeted us warmly and took us to our table, where we met Joel, who is maybe the friendliest waiter I’ve ever had! I could instantly tell he was passionate about his job and the food he was serving! He gave us great recommendations on food and wine! My group is still talking about the wonderful time we had at Lone Mountain Ranch and all the great people we met while there!

A+ time at Lone Mountain Ranch!! The bartender Stephen welcomed us with some great cocktails and answered all of our questions about Big Sky. Our waiter Joel was phenomenal and when we had some in depth questions about the wines he brought over Porter who had the knowledge of a sommelier and was also very friendly. The wine, food, and atmosphere made for an unforgettable experience! Don’t skip this if you’re ever in Big Sky!

Lone Mountain Ranch is one of the best resorts we've ever stayed. I booked this trip after much research on a great family, modern cabin, Montana experience. The entire staff was amazing, many of the staff perform several duties and it seems that there is always, ALWAYS, someone available to assist. As we all know, these days, adequate support staff is few and far between. The breakfast and lunch are buffet, however, you can always order something separate and the chef will make it happen. The restaurant Horn and Cattle is a "foodies" delight. They have a large range of options from Meat, fish and vegetarian options. Great wine selections. The rooms are clean, big and very COZY. We stayed in Larkspur Cabin. Our family had privacy, yet felt part of the Ranch the entire time. The resort provides firewood, coffee delivery in. the morning contained in those old school Green Stanley Vacuum Bottles. I swear , it stays fresh for hours. The Ranch is known for Nordic Skiing and trails. We ventured out for the Sleigh Ride Dinner and it didn't disappoint. Being so close to Big Sky Resort and Mountain is definitely a plus. The Ranch provided concierge shuttle service to and fro, pretty much at your leisure. I'm beyond ecstatic with my choice, and my family definitely left a little piece of us back at the Ranch. Don't hesitate, it's a once in a lifetime experience.

Lone Mountain Ranch is situated in a beautiful setting. We were there in February and loved the cross-country skiing-- tons of trails abound. Food was amazing-- as was the bar. Food and beverage service was excellent, and our cabin was super cozy. Our biggest issues centered on transportation and housekeeping. If you want to go somewhere (i.e., skiing at Big Sky), you need to text the hotel. Routinely they would balk at our request and insist we change our departure or pick-up time-- largely to accommodate other guests. The housekeeping was virtually non-existent. We placed our coffee order upon check-in-- to be delivered in the morning. It took them 3 days to bring half-and-half. Trash was never removed, and one evening there was no turn-down service because they were going on a sleigh ride. In summary, we ate and drank well and slept comfortably with plenty of activities to pursue. While the food and beverage service was outstanding-- as was the nordic center-- the other components of service were pitifully awful. Considering the cost of a stay there, one would expect them to cater to ever whim. Unfortunately that was far from reality.

Great week under the discovery package. Super service and food at the bar and restaurant from Solomon and Noah and Katie and Craig! High quality driving from Danny and Erika. Top notch cross country and snow show service from Tom- Bull moose cabin was beautiful and the sleigh ride dinner was magical.

Our server, Porter, delivered a magnificent dining experience. He paired our wine with all of our food choices. We will continue to visit LMR because of him. His knowledge was infinite and fascinating…from foie gras to Chablis. Thank you!

Fantastic, five-star ranch experience from start to finish. Enjoyed the “Bald Eagle” cabin and a fresh foot of snow. Met at Bozeman airport graciously by Danny and we were off and running on our way to LMR. Myles got us to our cabin and gave us the lay of the land. If you get an opportunity to hang with Myles when he’s telling stories in the saloon, pull up and chair and don’t leave. Extremely refreshing POV. We got to start every morning with Zak and Debbie for breakfast. Exceptional hosts and always gave us extra carrots / apples for the horses to eat once we wrapped up. If you’re having a bad day, go feed these horses. I dare you to say that you are having a bad day after that. Highlight of the trip, Backcountry ski experience with Anya on the Fawn Creek trail in Yellowstone. Amazing guide and experience. Our only regret was not doing this more than one day. She packs a mean lunch too! Also, understand that she’s sponsored by “SOUP” :D Be sure to check out the nature social hike with Jess. We loved her passion for nature and preserving what makes this land so special. Best Sleigh-ride guide, Steven got us to the north cabin for dinner, safe and sound with Lane and Zane. And finally, Joe is the first and last person on staff you see, for check in/out. Always available for questions and a true professional. Thanks again to all of the LMR staff and housekeeping that made our experience amazing. We will definitely be back.

Made a reservation here during our family visit to Big Sky. Absolutely amazing food and great service! I had the Bison Tenderloin and it was to die for! Our server Jocelyn was amazing! She kept us laughing all night and was very patient with our rambunctious kids. Will be coming back during our next ski vacation!

Omg where do I start-so many wonderful people to make my solo birthday a trip I will never forget.The drivers were unbelievable and always a few minutes early-Danny, Hamlet and Sean made sure I got where I needed very safe and they were so friendly. John Allen greeted me with a smile and good humor that made my trip start with such happiness. Joe greeted mean the manager and made me feel welcome Deborah and Ellen and Zack and Shane knew I like the birds needed out the window and made sure my table was ready for me and made me feel like a queen The skiing was stunning-beyond beautiful. Hannah set me right with clothes that would keep me warm and always remembered my name. Anya and Jess and John and Andrew made my skiing such fun. lessons in detail to keep me safe and tons of laughter to go with it. Jordon took me snowshoeing in Yellowstone. very educational and a great guy. Phillip and Mika came to help me build a fire in the snow-such great guys. Miles brought me a bath salt to help me relax in tub for my birthday. I loved to watch Randy feed the numerous bird feeders that brought many different colored birds near the window where Even and Deb would seat me.
