We love the Schaufs! The remodeled railroad worker cabin was clean and spacious. Breakfast was different everyday and Aaron is a great cook. We also enjoyed dinner twice at the restaurant..delish! They had a bonfire and fireworks for the fourth of July and we were welcomed with open arms to join the festivities. We loved it here and strongly recommend... More

My husband and I truly LOVED our time together at Bison Creek. I didn't want to leave. We stayed in the red, smaller cabins. Our favorite part was the food we ate at the restaurant which is conveniently located on site. We tried the "Sinopah Sundae," which had a base made of Indian fry bread, and was topped off with...

We had a wonderful experience at Bison Creek Ranch, and by the time we left it was beginning to feel like we were part of the family. My family stayed for a week in the A-frame cabin and they are old and rustic, just perfect for the atmosphere we were looking for. The view that you wake up to is... More

We stayed in May, which is considered the off season, so Bison Creek Ranch wasn't very busy. After driving from Spokane International Airport, I was a little nervous about being able to find the ranch once in Montana. My GPS took me a couple of driveways down from it, however, I was able to eventually figure out where it was.... More

The cabin we stayed in was not fancy....rustic but very clean...but the best part of our visit was the hospitality we received from Aaron and Mollie plus everyone else associated with Bison Creek Ranch. The food at the restaurant is some of the best food we have eaten anywhere....Aaron adds those special touches that take a meal from good to... More

Based on the number of five star reviews, I expected a much nicer place. When you see "rustic" think really basic and don't expect much from the beds. For us, the real kicker was that as soon as my older daughter entered the cabin, she had some sort of severe allergic reaction. At most, she has very mild allergies (sneezes... More

I had a relaxing trip hiking in Glacier and really enjoyed the nights I spent at Bison Creek Ranch. Family owned, home-cooked breakfast (and get a Boxie for lunch too). Nothing fancy--no TV or phones to distract from the stars or sitting out on your porch at night. Warm and friendly, and unlike town, no mosquitoes.

We were greeted as soon as we arrived and were given the down low on our reservation. We had both an A-Frame and a cabin and both were very well kept and rustic. The view was breath taking. As you sit on the patio, you are overlooking East Glacier and the mountains are beautiful. We had dinner and breakfast on... More

We stayed in the cabins at Bison Creek Ranch last week and had a wonderful time. It's not fancy but it's very comfortable and the people are fantastic. Molly, 'Papa', and young Emmett were great hosts:-). Breakfast both days was delicious (different each day) and there was plenty of food to get us ready for a day of hiking. We... More

Snow had fallen on East and West Galcier just in time for our September 11-13 visit. My husband, son and I found our gandy dancer cabins (#6+7) clean as as whistle and cozy with their little fireplaces (one gas and the other electric.
