Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, located in Emigrant Park County Montana, sits on more than 17,000 acres of unspoiled, untouched wilderness in the middle of Yellowstone Country. The property begins at the Yellowstone River in the Paradise Valley. It continues up through sagebrush-covered meadows, pine forests and aspen stands until you reach the Gallatin National Forest. The rushing waters and trout-filled waters of Big Creek run 4.5 miles throughout the entire property. You can enjoy a barbecue dinner cooked on the grill in the lower ranch pavilion or a gourmet dinner served in the dining room. You can sing your favorite western tunes on the hors-d’oeuvres hayride, or around the campfire. You can end the evening in the cozy saloon or relax in the hot spa.
Many of the cabins date from the ranch’s early days in the 1920s. However, they have all been restored and refurbished for luxurious comfort in rustic surroundings. Each cabin building is different, and there are a variety of options for one, two and three-bedroom units. Choose from cabins that feature stone fireplaces or picture windows with breathtaking scenery. You can also choose to hear the sound of a meandering river outside your window.
Big Horn is an elegant three-bedroom cabin. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other two bedrooms have twin beds, the third bedroom has a queen sized bed, and there are two bathrooms. The separate living area has a pullout sofa bed, and a stone fire place. The breakfast and lunch spreads are lavish, with a variety of options to suit every taste. Dinners are gourmet five-course meals. The evening entrees include beef tenderloin, Chilean Sea Bass, and truffled Portabella Pasta.
Enjoy a morning hike, or energize your body by participating in a yoga class. You can also watch the wranglers lead the horses down the mountainside. After a delicious breakfast buffet, take a horseback ride through acres and acres of flower filled meadows. Or stroll along Big Creek. Afternoon activities include rafting on the Yellowstone River, or mountain stream fly-fishing. Mountain Sky Wellness Center offers scheduled yoga and massages, as well as a heated outdoor swimming pool, cedar steam room, outdoor hot-tub, and grotto. After a brisk walk, you can relax with a relaxing massage or start your day off with an energetic yoga session.
Mountain Sky Guest Ranch is located in the stunning Paradise Valley only 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park. The location in the Rocky Mountains is ideal for travelers of any age and interest. A tour of the Park will allow you to experience the beauty of nature. In the Park, you can enjoy a day of exploring the hotsprings, searching for bears and wild wolves in Lamar Valley or relaxing in the boiling rivers.
