You’re looking for a Montana vacation with local hosts who know the land, the wildlife, and the outdoor recreation – and work to make your stay comfortable, welcoming, and memorable.
Our life’s work is doing just that.
We first purchased land in the Ruby Valley after growing up in Butte, Montana, in the early 1980s.
Since then, we’ve been riding horses, hunting, and fly fishing in this area, often taking friends along to share in our adventures.
Eventually, we started dreaming about opening a guest ranch and bringing more people on our excursions.
In June 1993, we decided to go for it and went to work building the Montana lodge we’re proud to host our guests in.
Just one year later we opened for business and have gratefully shared our Montana hunting, fly fishing, and ranching lifestyle with guests since then.
We look forward to serving you and making your Montana vacation amazing!
