Yes, a large wedding must be a buyout of all The Ranch’s accommodations and services for a minimum of three nights, so that we can provide first-class services to all your wedding guests. If you are interested in eloping with a group of 16 or less, you do not need to buy out the property.
Please note that during the spring, winter and fall, a buyout is more likely to be available and at a reduced rate from our peak summer season.
Buyouts for groups of 17 or more start at $72,000 per night plus a 20% Ranch fee. We are happy to create a custom quote for your party. Please fill out our wedding and event request for proposal at the bottom of our events page.
Yes. If you are interested in a wedding at The Ranch, we encourage you to find a wedding planner that can help bring all aspects of your destination wedding together in our beautiful setting. Though we provide catering, set-up, on-site coordination, staff, accommodations, activities and more, a wedding coordinator works with you through all aspects of the process, including liaising with your guests and creating a unique vision. If you don’t have a wedding planner in mind, we can recommend trusted vendors.
We can host up to 75 people during the majority of the year. Elopement services area available for 16 or fewer guests.
No, The Ranch is designed to be an all-inclusive resort, so our services are based on providing activities, dining and amenities for guests staying on-property.
Yes. The majority of our guests plan an outdoor ceremony, and most of the time the ceremony goes off without a hitch. However, Montana weather (and all weather) can surprise us. In that case, we will propose a beautiful indoor space that will complement your wedding vision.
Yes! All of our catering is on-site, and it is all prepared by our world-class Relais & Châteaux culinary team. Please see above for sample menus prepared by Executive Chef Josh Drage. Our menus are created based on the preferences of the bride and groom.
Yes. Many couples enjoy the idea of combining their wedding and elopement with a stress-free honeymoon in five-star comfort. Please see more information about couples accommodations, activities and treatments on our honeymoon page.
We will continue to offer private activities, but space them out to ensure we can clean all the gear and sanitize it before every activity. Our Sharecare Health Security Verification with Forbes Travel Guide requires that we maintain every precaution to keep guests and staff safe.
Due to spacing of activity start times and sanitation of our extensive included equipment, each day we will include one guided activity and one nature-based activity. We have added 11 new guided or self-guided activities to ensure families will be able to explore further than ever before while creating space and time for proper sanitation and social distancing protocols for guided activities. For example, you might enjoy horseback riding in the morning and then sapphire mining, disc golf, hiking or Respite on Rock Creek in the afternoon.
We have staggered our start times for activities so that we can control the number of people in the Rod & Gun Club. Most fittings will be done at the site of the activity. We ask that you abide by start times for the safety of our staff and guests.
Per CDC recommendation, masks are recommended for unvaccinated guests in all indoor spaces and outdoor areas where 6 feet of space cannot be maintained. Our vaccinated employees are not required to wear masks indoors or outdoors, but may choose to wear them if they are more comfortable doing so. Employees are required to wear masks in vehicles going off property, such as airport transfers and off-ranch excursions.
We can accommodate guests who would prefer to have staff wear masks in their presence. Please relay this request to your group coordinator during the pre-booking process.

Airport transfers are available and included from Missoula, Butte and Anaconda airports. A Ranch employee will greet guests at the airport and drive them to The Ranch. Masks will be required during transportation. Water and snacks are available for the drive.
Each individual, couple or family group will receive their own vehicle so that social distancing with non-family members will be maintained.
Your Group Coordinator will collect all flight/travel information prior to arrival in order to provide transportation for all guests.
No, spa treatments are additional. Please see the list of what is not included in our pricing on our all-inclusive page.
