We had a great time at Mountain Sky - the horses were fantastic, the property lovely, and the staff were incredibly conscientious and welcoming. We rode every day, fly fished, got massages, and ate too much. A perfect vacation! We will be back next year.

Our second visit to this wonderful slice of Montana. The food, the views the accommodations are all first rate . The horseback riding is the centre of activity and enjoyable for all levels. But what really stands out is the staff and their attention to detail. Not sure if they

I'm not a horse person, but after this trip, I could be. The staff were engaging and kind. The accommodations were perfect, and well situated on the complex. Loved the fireplace in our room and the opportunity to disconnect from the internet and TV except in the lodge. The

One of our top three lifetime vacations, if not the best; we’re in our 50’s and have travelled extensively in the US and internationally. The staff is very focused on making guests feel welcome and comfortable - they are all top notch at what they do from the wranglers to the

The only thing we have to add is that there are two dinners during the week when guests eat as a family. These relaxed, buffet-style BBQ meals feature games and outdoor dining options. We'll be happy to answer any more questions you might have - feel free to give us a call anytime!

I believe that they close for the winter after the second week in October. But if you were to go next year at that beginning of October, it does not interfere with any activity. Just dress for the changing weather. Swimming is about the only thing you wouldn't want to do, but the Hot tub is still Great!

Gratuity is included in your rate, so there is no need to tip staff working on-site. Our massage therapists and off-site contractors (sporting clays, rafting guides, etc.) are not employed by the ranch, and gratuity is appreciated in those scenarios. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns!

I believe they would be considered as adults. The "children's program" is really for younger, grade-school children, but there are teen options. I would recommend going and finding out if there will be others the same age, and letting your teens decided where they are more comfortable. The ranch is the most accommodating place I have ever experienced, so I am positive there will be no issues at all. Call them if it makes you feel better. The people who answer the phone are very helpful and will really answer anything. You will be on vacation. Mountain Sky will make sure everyone enjoys themselves.

"if you are lucky enough to get one, take it!"
"best views are on all sides, dress for all kinds of weather, and get ready for a wild west adventure!"
"Get a cabin with a fireplace in the bedroom, such a nice treat!"
