The Best Montana Resort Is In Big Sky


Considering a vacation to Montana this summer? Lucky you! There’s a lot to love about Montana and so many reasons why a Montana Vacation is the perfect trip for anyone!

Montana is one of the largest states in the US (the 4th largest), and yet has one of the smallest populations. The “Big Sky” state is the gateway to two iconic National Parks (Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park). Montana is getting the reputation of being “The Last Best Place” because there is still so much open land, wildlife and beautiful scenery and so many activities available throughout the state. With everything Montana has to offer, you certainly can’t fit everything into a single trip (although it’s fun to try).

Lone Mountain Ranch offers the perfect Montana experience. It’s a blend of a luxury resort and quiet mountain cabin. Each day, you can choose your own experience. Whether you are looking for active adventure or peaceful relaxation. For the active guests, you can get your heart pumping by white water rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, or zip lining. Or if you’re in the mood for something a little more quiet and relaxing, you could stay at the ranch for yoga and a massage – or just retreat to your cabin for the ultimate peace and quiet. Of course, you are in Montana, so you can choose some more traditional “Montana Activities” like horseback riding, fly fishing, hiking or visiting Yellowstone National Park.

Dining at the ranch is anything, but ordinary. Executive Chef Eric Gruber oversees a menu that is locally sourced for true farm-to-table culinary delights that reflect the true Montana heritage. You’ll experience a dining experience that weaves together crafted food and drink that will awaken the tastebuds and satisfy your hunger.

Evenings might be your favorite part of your vacation. Returning to a comfy, cozy private cabin at the end of each day just soothes the soul.

Summer 2020 Update

Dear Ranch Family,

We believe there are places on earth that have the power to transform us, and Lone Mountain Ranch is just that place. Ever since we homesteaded in 1915, our story has had one consistent thread: warm and welcoming hospitality to all,  and we are proud to continue that tradition as our Governor has announced that the state of Montana will enter into Phase 2, allowing incoming visitors and opening the state for tourism. Our 2020 Summer Season for Ranch Guests, Horn & Cantle Dining, Outdoor Youth Adventure Program and Horse Program begins on June 7th!

Like all ranch guests, we know you may have a few questions, especially during this unprecedented time. We wanted you to know that our ranch ambassadors have spent this valued time away planning our re-opening protocols. We’ve refined the ranch experience to comply with health and safety regulations and in accordance with social distancing, including expanding Horn & Cantle’s space to include our grand lawn area. Our new protocols additionally include touch-less check-in/check-out, capacity reductions in all food & beverage areas, health measures during our activities and an EPA approved cleaning process in our cabins and throughout the property.

We can’t wait for y’all to get here, take a walk back through time and get a sense of our roots and the Real Montana you’ll find.

My sincere best,

Ryan Kunz, General Manager
