“Amazing sleigh ride”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The staff were so friendly and helpful! Our bus broke down on the way to our sleigh ride and when calling the Lone ranch, they immediately offered to come pick us up! (They also offered to take us all the way back to our resort if the bus was not fixed by the end of our sleigh ride!) The horses were two large Belgian draft horses, the sleigh was a beautiful antique that creaked as it glided over the snowy fields, the guide was sweet and knowledgeable about the history of the ranch, and the stars were amazing! We stopped to enjoy a fire and a delicious chili with bison and elk in it, a kettle of freshly popped corn, and cheese and crackers! The bar was open - but since i was working, I did not have any alcohol, but we all enjoyed either hot chocolate topped with whipped cream or hot cider! Since the bus was almost ready to pick us up, we waited in the saloon next door which had a pool table, chess set, warm fires burning in the fireplace, comfortable chairs and a staff that were so friendly and welcoming even though I had 19 teenagers with me and we were not buying anything there! I highly recommend this experience - well maybe without the flat tire on the bus!

John was a great instructor and guide for my son, Daniel, and me. A wonderful half-day walk and wade on the Gallatin River.

“Lone Mountain Ranch Orvis Fly Fishing & Horseback Riding ~ The perfect day!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Our family of five found out about Lone Mountain Ranch after our road trip was planned. We were thrilled to discover that we could experience Lone Mountain Ranch as day guests! LMR had us well equipped in waders, boots, Orvis gear and instruction. We fly fished in the Gallantin River with our guides. It was the most amazing experience of our trip. We caught rainbow and brown trout. There we were in the "A River Runs Through It" ~ it was awesome. After fly fishing we returned to LMR for a wonderful bbq lunch. In the afternoon @ LMR, we rode horses that were perfectly matched to our ability & experience. We rode on trails through the forest, waterfalls and had spectacular views with our guide. Lone Mountain Ranch's Outdoor Shop is staffed with friendly, kind and knowledgeable people. It was an awesome day and one we will never forget.

“Great Trails, Great Shopping”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

You can't beat this trail system - it's expansive, varied, and well taken cared for.
The Outdoor Shop has never failed to make me leave more money than I should: They have excellent products, and a great selection of unique things that I can't seem to leave without. They do a really nice job with everything we've experienced at Lone Mountain Ranch.
