Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, Montana

Intersected by a meandering alpine creek, Lone Mountain Ranch is nestled in a valley backing up onto mountain ranges just 18 miles from Yellowstone National Park. The property dates back about a century and has been a rough-luxe family dude ranch for than more 30 years. The working ranch offers all-inclusive escapes from the everyday grind brimming with an array of exhilarating outdoor activities. The freestanding cabins, many of them original 100-year-old structures, are strewn across the beautifully upkept grounds. Accommodations are warmly appointed with authentic country Western style furnishings, featherbeds and down-home patchwork quilts. Each of the individually designed lodges has a private entrance and features a small sitting area, cozy wood or gas burning fireplace, electric heat and a private in-cabin bathroom with a tub and shower combination.

Lone Mountain Ranch pays special attention to kids and many activities are devised to boost their confidence. The Outdoor Youth Adventures Program sweeps young’uns 3 years and up away in a flurry of tailor-made nature experiences and fun ventures like kids rodeos, ropes courses, canoeing and animal tracking. Adventures for all ages come standard year-round at the ranch and run the gamut from horseback rides, kayaking and mountain biking during the summer months to snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and sleigh rides in winter. Bespoke Naturalist-guided tours to Yellowstone are available regardless of season. Ready to indulge a bit? Soothe post-adventuring or saddle-sore muscles by taking a dip in the hot tub or arrange for a pampering in-cabin hot stone massage. Come evening guests mingle during convivial get-togethers at the B-K: the ranch’s comfortable great lounge has a large fireplace, library and family games. Cuisine at Lone Mountain’s communal meals is purposely far from ordinary ranch grub: the chefs use locally sourced products and draw from the plentiful dishes native to the Northwestern Rockies. Incorporating locally farmed bacon and eggs, fresh produce as well as Kobe beef, elk and venison, cookery adapts to the seasons. In a nutshell: Lone Mountain Ranch is the perfect place to experience the beauty and endless recreational opportunities of southwest Montana.

This ranch is in a beautiful setting and the cabins are nice. The cross country skiing and snowshoeing activities are wonderful, all rental equipment is here and it’s super easy to rent and get on trails. I would not classify this lodge as luxury though. For example, one of the activities listed for one day was ice skating, which we wanted to do, except no staff had bothered to clean the snow off the ice rink. I don’t know anything about ice rink maintenance, but if there is 2 feet of snow and you can’t/won’t sweep it off, then don’t list ice skating as an activity. Also, we requested luggage pickup from our room which we were told would take 10 minutes. It actually took over an hour for someone to show up. Why tell me 10, and then have me wait over an hour? Finally, if you book one of the cabins like the rainbow/grayling unit where 2 non-joining one bedrooms share the same structure, know that you will hear everything in the adjacent cabin.

Where to start... I know. It can't be beat. Nuff said. WE just stayed at Lone Mtn. Ranch last week. From check in, to check out, they offered a great experience in the Mountains. The cabins are decorated in Western taste with complete attention to detail. The staff are friendly, caring, and made us feel welcome, like we were a part of the family. Alexander and Erica are exceptional servers. Bartenders Steven, Michael and Kyle treated us like friends they had known for years. Jason, our guide on the backcountry cross country ski in Yellowstone, was easy-going, friendly and so patient with my wife and I as we tagged along behind him. Thanks to ALL of the Lone Mtn. team. You are the best!! The food...OMG...the food. Best we have experienced at a resort, ANYWHERE. Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, the choices and preparation were of Michelin quality. Try the Tomahwak steak, split it for 2. I also had the trout and we shared the pickled, brined fried chicken. All superb! The fresh baked goods and sourdough bread were mouthwatering. Activities are plentiful and staff are there to assist you. Lone Mountain Ranch does it all, and does it the Best.

My girlfriend and I went to Lone Mountain Ranch for her birthday and took the sleigh ride. It was beyond anything we imagined. Every staff member we encountered was genuinely friendly, helpful, and courteous. The food was delicious; the music was soulful and heartfelt. We had a fantastic time and decided we should make the sleigh ride a yearly pilgrimage.

Our family loved the sleigh ride. We did the appetizer sleigh ride and rode on a sleigh to a yurt where we had cocktails and the best chili we have ever had. Our cowboy was super friendly and gave us a good history of the ranch. The snow was gently falling as we arrived to the yurt and the only word to describe was magical. Not too long, not too short, just right. A perfect before dinner outing.

Had a girls trip planned with my best friend and Montana had been a bucket list item for me for years. This was the quintessential experience I was looking for. THE GOOD: 1. Service is exceptional 2. Food is SO SO SO good 3. Cabins have every thing you could want 4. Tons of options for activities 5. Bed is comfortable THE BAD: 1. We had to leave. :) Cant say enough good things. I left a necklace and they immediately text me to find out how to get it back. We had a mixup with an activity and came home to find a bottle of the wine we drank the night before in our room as a sweet gesture. I can't wait to go back.
