The location was great. It is in Cooke City--about 5 miles outside of Yellowstone. The drive into Yellowstone was beautiful and we saw a lot of wildlife in the Lamar Valley. Although we did not have time to enjoy many of the amenities and options to do at the ranch, we could see that it looked like a great place... More

Of all the places we stayed during our recent 10 day Western Vacation, the Skyline Guest Ranch was my favorite. Great accommodations, friendly and welcoming staff, quiet and peaceful setting, wonderful breakfast, and a fun morning horse ride. We'll return to this ranch for sure.

I have stayed at a few locations around Cooke City and this is by far the best. Everyone at Skyline was very friendly. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. There are 3 floors of rooms but it is extremely quite and restful. The hot tub on the deck was a great place to relax after a long... More

My 10 year old son and I stayed here last fall for a couple of nights. We spent a day on the horseback fly fishing trip in Yellowstone and were incredibly pleased with our decision to try the Skyline Guest Ranch. The room was very comfortable and had plenty of room for our gear, including the boot dryers that were... More

Our family LOVES to stay at the Skyline Guest Ranch and we look forward to every stay. There is literally something for everyone from horseback riding with very well trained horses, fishing with or without guides, hiking and enjoying the beauty of nature - all within walking distance of the lodge. The fact that you're only 7 miles from the... More

We stayed in the Yellowstone Room which was clean, spacious, and great for a family. Television and games are available in common areas. The owners and staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Unfortunately we could only stay for one night. The ranch has many horses and seems to do a lot of horseback rides from one hour through a... More

This was a great experience for my family. We stayed only 1 night but both my boys wanted to stay longer. We took a 2 hour horse ride which was a great experience. There were horses all over the place. The service was great and friendly. The accommodations were comfortable My only advice, use real eggs for breakfast. They used... More

Great option for staying close to the NE entrance to Yellowstone. This is a bed-and-breakfas (w/horses, trail riding and guide services)t in a clean and comfortable log home. Very peaceful, and the proprietors are very friendly. Delicious breakfasts when we were there. Wildlife---Bison out front one day, bear in the back on another. Five min. into town, and 10 min....

We were only able to stay one night at Skyline, but it ended up being one of our favorites. Cooke City is a tiny one street town that was exactly what we were looking for out of our Montana experience and Skyline could not have been a better place to stay. The ranch is well-kept and exceptionally clean, situated perfectly,... More

We only stayed one night, and wish we had been able to stay another day to ride the trails. Our room had two queen beds and a large bathroom which was very clean and well-appointed. The B&B is a rustic log home. Breakfast was wonderful and our hosts very friendly. Would highly recommend a stay here. Yvette
