This was our 7th stay at Mountain Sky. We love the crisp mountain mornings on the veranda, the horseback rides with great and informative wranglers, golf in the valley and fishing for wild cutthroats- The dinning is great. Fantastic programs for children and teens- We are coming back again

My family has been going to Mountain Sky Guest Ranch for almost twenty years. For my children, it is as close to "home" as anything could be. They talk about coming the following year as we are driving down the driveway (called Big Creek) to depart. The ranch has all the elements for an ideal family experience: diverse hiking opportunities... More

Our family has been to three different guest ranches over the years and we have settled on Mountain Sky as the best in the business by far. This was the 7th year returning to Paradise Valley to ride horses through some of the most beautiful country in America. And we are probably still below the average tenure of guests at... More

My wife and I took three of our grand-kids for a week, and all had a simply glorious time. Lost of beautiful riding at whatever pace you wanted - we were new riders and yet we never found the riding experience to be anything but fun. Coupled with that were modest hikes (you can be more adventurous if you choose),... More

This was our second year at Mountain Sky. We both thoroughly enjoyed all facets of the experience. We both love riding and I love golf. What a great combo. Thanks to all for making this a very memorable experience. Michael and Jan Drake

I just returned from a great week at Mountain Sky Guest Ranch. There are lots of activities from which to choose - morning and afternoon rides, hiking, yoga, fly fishing or simply just hanging out. The wifi in the lodge was fast. The gift shop/store is very large with lots of things to purchase - jewelry, clothes, boots, flasks, gloves... More

Friends booked the entire property for a wedding reunion. Had a sweet cabin overlooking the property. I cannot begin to say enough about this place. The riding could not be better for beginners to expert. My skills in the saddle quadrupled. No more fear of the trot or canter. Expert instruction. Meals are called by the bell outside the main...

I am going back for the 3rd trip. The people are great. I love sitting on the front porch in the morning with fresh baked muffins and my tea to watch the sun rise and the horses come in from the pastures! Love the horse back riding and the meals are to die for. Love the people that go there...... More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay at Mountain Sky for almost a week. At first sight, it is breathtaking! The view is only the beginning at Mountain Sky. This vacation is the ultimate "Montana Experience". Being from Montana, I can tell you, at Mountain Sky you can knock out almost every outdoor activity possible. All of the... More
