Enjoy the Beauty of a Ranch Cabin with Spectacular Panoramic Views

  • 4 min read


Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, located in Emigrant County, Montana, sits on more than 17,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness, in the heart Yellowstone Country. The property is located near the Yellowstone River at the floor of Paradise Valley. From there, it climbs up through grass-covered foothills and meadows with thick pine forests, stands of aspen, and then continues to the Gallatin National Forest at your back door. The entire property is crossed by Big Creek’s trout-filled waters, which flow for 4.5 miles. Enjoy a dinner ride and barbecue at the lower ranch pavilion. Or, enjoy a delicious dinner in the dining area. The hors de oeuvres hayride and campfire are great places to belt out your western favorites. You can end the night with a cocktail in the saloon, or relax in the hot tub for a long soak.

While many of the guest cabins date back to the ranch’s beginnings in the 1920s, all have been carefully restored and refurbished to provide luxurious comfort amidst rustic surroundings. Each cabin building is unique, and they have a combination of one, two, and three-bedroom units available. Choose from cabins with stone fireplaces, picture windows with breathtaking views, or the sounds of a meandering stream outside the window.

Big Horn is a modern three-bedroom cabin with a king-sized bed in one bedroom, two twin-sized beds in the second bedroom, a queen-sized bed in the third bedroom, and two bathrooms. The separate living room has a pull-out sofa bed and a stone fireplace. Breakfast and lunch buffets are sumptuous spreads providing a variety of options for every taste, while dinners are gourmet three to five-course plated affairs. Beef tenderloin, Chilean sea bass, and truffled Portabella pasta are just a few examples of the evening entrees, and they are happy to accommodate any special dietary needs.

You can enjoy a crisp morning hike, energize your body with a yoga session, or watch the wranglers herd the horses down the mountainside. After a bountiful breakfast buffet, ride on horseback through acres of flower-filled meadows or stroll along beautiful Big Creek. The afternoon brings rafting down the Yellowstone River or trying your hand at mountain stream fly fishing. In addition to scheduled massages and yoga classes, the Mountain Sky Wellness Center features a heated outdoor pool, cedar sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub, and grotto for you to indulge. Start your day with an energizing yoga session, pamper yourself with a healing massage after a brisk hike, or just let the warm water of the grotto wash away the rigors of the day.

Mountain Sky Guest Ranch is set in the spectacular Paradise Valley, only 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park. In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the location naturally creates an unforgettable vacation spot for travelers of all ages and interests. To experience the magnificence of nature, a tour of the Park is highly recommended. At the Park, you can spend a day discovering the hot springs, looking for bears and wolves in the Lamar Valley, or relaxing in the boiling river.
