Lone Mountain Ranch encompass both the Gallatin and Madison mountain ranges, as well as truly a spectacular view of Lone Mountain peak. The ranch is also surrounded by the Gallatin National Forest.

The main Lodge is a great meeting place with a sophisticated Saloon in which guests can enjoy a pre-dinner libation. Meals are taken in the delightful dinning room, here the aim of the chefs is to provide you with an "epicurean experience" unlike anything else you’ve had before.

Log cabins encircle the Lodge and the whole ranch is set high up on the side of the mountain. On offer are daily riding trips, hiking, mountain biking and fishing in trout filled rivers.

Evening entertainment will round off a busy day with either cowboy singers or an informative talk about the Greater Yellowstone Eco-system.


Unique is one word that might best describe the guest cabins. Whether your cabin was built 70 years ago or in the last decade, all are attractive, well-maintained and comfortable and include daily housekeeping service.

The lodge pole pine furnishings, patchwork quilts and western accessories reflect the historical atmosphere of the Ranch, built in 1926. Each cabin has a private bath, wood burning stove or fireplace and electric heat.

The smaller cabins have one bedroom/living area and bath. The larger cabins have a separate living room and 2-3 bedrooms. There are some 25 different units to choose from depending on your party size.

The Horn and Cantle dining Lodge is a beautiful log building with a generously equipped modern kitchen, a log dining room with huge elk antler chandeliers and a massive stone fireplace.  This is a sumptous yet wonderfully informal and comfortable room. The food has received many International Accolades. They also have a Saloon in the Lodge where you will meet other guests.

Many of their staff have worked at the ranch for several years and their love of the place is contagious. Many guests would agree it is every bit as much these people who make this place special.

The ranch offers horse riding to guests of 6 and over, beginning with basic horsemanship and control skills, kids may join parents on the easier rides.

Riding takes place in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The terrain around the ranch is mountainous so the opportunity for faster riding may be limited by that factor. They have a herd of well-trained horses and experienced wranglers who lead the rides with enjoyment, education and safety in mind.

Rides are limited to a few riders per wrangler so the wranglers are able to provide more specialized attention telling you about the area and what you are seeing along the ride. The wranglers will spend time with guests on your first full day assessing your abilities and matching you with the best horse and riding experiences for their ability level.

Some guests will have had  some previous riding experience, but it is not a necessity.

Please note, to ensure horse and rider safety in mountainous terrain, there is a maximum rider weight limit of 230 pounds (16.4 stone)

Included in the ranch package there is a Yellowstone Tour available, ranch naturalists have led people into the special places of this Park for years and share with guests an unrivaled intimacy and understanding.

The combination of knowledgeable people and nature will make anyone look at life a little differently. Whether your preferred mode of exploration is by foot hiking, by boat canoeing or kayaking, by bike mountain biking or by vehicle touring Yellowstone National Park, the ranch's naturalists help guests feel comfortable while discovering the true nature of the place.

LMR offers guided fly fishing packages on nearby world-famous trout streams. Anglers can enjoy both float and wade fishing on Blue Ribbon rivers such as the Madison, Gallatin and Yellowstone.

Other options include small stream fishing, high mountain lakes and spring creeks on private ranches. Every package includes lodging, all meals, guided fly fishing trips, rental gear, flies and transfers to and from the Bozeman airport.

There is plenty of evening entertainment to look forward to as well. This may be a talk by a local Biologist on the flora and fauna. There are also a number of talented musicians who visit the ranch to entertain, you may even find them working at the ranch for the summer.

There are also a number of off-ranch activities that can be arranged but are paid for separately. For example, the Gallatin River offers Class I-IV rapids depending on the time of year and river flows. Alternatively there are guides specializing in taking novice and intermediate climbers, Montana Alpine Guides promotes climbing as a safe and exciting activity that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
