My husband and I just got back from a getaway at Rich Ranch in Montana. My in-laws came with us and although my husband was sick for the first three days of the vacation, I must say, the sheer beauty of the land and the authenticity of the Rich Family and their hospitality certainly more than made up for his illness. In fact, we had such a fantastic time, that we're thinking of taking the whole family: my sister and brother-in-law, six and eight year old nieces, and our eighteen and twenty year old too. Belinda and Jack (owners) along with their children, nieces, and always smiling sister Peggy are the genuine article.
If you're looking for a little bit of Americana circa the Old West and are nostalgic for a family run Dude Ranch replete with Cowboy Poetry, banjo playing, horse wrangling and rides, hiking in vistas that look almost surreal, birding (we saw the largest eagle in the country - the Great Grey Owl), wildlife scouting, and fishing ...then stop searching. Rich Ranch has it all.
Jack Rich says that "the world comes to his door." After a lovely trip to their beautiful home and land, I completely understand why. Our family will definitely be one to knock on the Rich Ranch door again soon.
