If guests prefer to drive themselves or do not wish to wear masks, a Ranch employee will greet guests at the airport and provide a complimentary private vehicle from Enterprise car rental agency for guests to transport themselves to The Ranch. They will be ushered to The Ranch with our driver leading the way. (Advanced notice required)

The Ranch property is comprised of mountains, soft hills, meadows, pasture, forest, a mountain-fed creek and gravel roads. It is a short distance from the Beaverhead-Deer Lodge National Forest and the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness Area, as well as Discovery Ski Area. Nestled at the base of the John Long Mountains, our 6,600 acres of ranch land also encompasses four miles of frontage along Rock Creek, a Blue Ribbon designated fishery that flows into the Clark Fork River. To the far south, soft rolling hills give way to snow-capped peaks of the Pintler Mountains. Northward, cottonwood trees stretch along the valley floor following the creek flowing deep into the Sapphire Mountains.

Yes, The Ranch has added more activities to ensure there are a plethora of safe and fulfilling outdoor activities for your group. View the list above to learn more about what’s available for groups.

Guides and staff will wear masks and gloves during the moments when social distancing isn’t possible. We will ask guests to do the same in those rare instances. Out on the trail or activity, once six feet of distance can be maintained, face masks will not be required. If a guest does need assistance that requires guides to go within six feet it is mandatory that wranglers and guests put on their masks.

In order to execute this, we ask that all guests walk or bike to their activities (to avoid vehicle usage). We also stagger our activity start times to avoid crowds in the Rod & Gun Club. We ask that you be on time for your activity. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you may not be able to take part in your activity.

Yes! A couple can choose to dine in their accommodation for any or all of their meals. If they would like more traditional hosted service, they can book meals in the Granite Lodge or a Pastoral Picnic lunch where tables are set apart for minimal interaction with other guests. 

For a small fee, or included in the elopement package, couples can dine on one of The Ranch’s vistas or secluded outdoor location (weather permitting). Please see our event venues for more information about these spaces.

As evidenced from the wide range of weather (see above) in the Montana Rockies, we highly suggest packing layers. Mornings and evenings in Montana are chilly, afternoons have warmer temperatures.

All equipment needed for activities is provided through Rod & Gun Club. However, we do suggest that you pack your own hiking boots, hats, sunglasses, gloves and other commonly used items to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Riding boots with a one inch heel are recommended.
