For over 100 years, Lone Mountain Ranch has been a symbol of the American West. The ranch had a seat at the table for the early days of Yellowstone Park, the formation of the town of Big Sky, the evolution of ranching and logging in the Northern Rockies and the preservation of this spectacular wilderness. Ever since they homesteaded in 1915, the story has had one consistent thread: warm and welcoming hospitality to all. Take a walk back through time to get a sense of their roots and the Real Montana you’ll find when you arrive.
Unique Features: The top must-do dining experience in Big Sky, the sleigh ride dinner has captivated generations of visitors and locals alike since 1975. You and your family will enjoy a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh ride up to an oil-lantern-lit North Fork cabin to enjoy a family-style prime-rib dinner while being serenaded by live music.
Accommodations: There are a bunch of cabins to choose from. For example, named for North America’s only aquatic songbird, The Ouzel, one-bedroom cabin is perfect for nesting. Unwind in style in the claw-foot tub or by the wood stove. Enjoy the luxury of the king-sized bed, queen sleeper sofa, sitting area, or full bath with walk-in tile shower. You’ll be singing this cabin’s praises for years to come!
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Bull Moose, which is the perfect cabin for a small family, or a couple. The Bull Moose features a large living room (including its original stone fireplace) and sitting area as well as a large bedroom with a king bed and wood stove. Enjoy the view by watching the sunrise over the mountains!
Dining: One of the most exciting things about Lone Mountain Ranch is the food. The executive Chef oversees the deep commitment to locally sourced, farm-to-table menus that reflect the ranch’s true Montana heritage. Whether you join them at Big Sky’s favorite Horn & Cantle Restaurant, The Saloon or one of the signature experiences, you’ll find a mix of Western favorites and modern originals!
Activities: Guests enjoy evenings around a glowing campfire, scenic horseback trail riding, and live western music to name a few of the experiences that leave guests returning year after year.

Situated between the world famous Madison and Gallatin Rivers, Lone Mountain Ranch is the idyllic place to fish blue ribbon rainbow, brown and brook trout.

Certified yoga instructors will take you through Vinyasa style yoga to warm and condition the body while softening and relaxing the mind.
