We arrived very late (10.30) because of the time difference between Montana and Washington. Couldn't ring because my SIM card couldn't make US calls. Found directions to the tipis pinned to the door of the office so we could make our own way round, though when we got there we didn't know which tipi was to be ours. Totally our...

I've always wanted a glamping experience without paying an arm and a leg. This is your location to go glamping without overpaying. We stayed in a walled tent with enough beds for our family of four. There were plenty of warm blankets for the chilly nights. I wouldn't called these luxury accommodations but our family found this place very charming....

Thought we'd try something different this trip and booked a night in the Teepee as no cabins or rooms were available. The teepee was pretty basic but had a couple of fairly comfortable single beds and lots of blankets. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating and we were able to drive our vehicle right up to the teepe...

Stayed here during a golf vacation to Montana. Room was well appointed and very comfortable. Staff is very professional while being very friendly and accommodating. Great breakfast served with personal touches and until your are full. Dinner also available for a $20 up charge. Enjoy the ranch and wild animals, especially the buffalo. I highly recommend for singles, couples and...

This was the most unique experience of our trip. We had to wait for a pony to move out of the main road leading up to the ranch. When we arrived we found two guys fixing the fence. Check in was fast and we were escorted to Gus's Cabin for the night. It was awesome! We had bunnies afoot, horses...

Arrived on a Saturday and there were no signs of where to check in at! Walked around for awhile to find it. We stayed in the cabin, and it was very clean and comfy. No TV in the room, and no cell service. You are off the grid which takes a little getting used to. You need to ask about...

My husband and I visited Kalispell on our way to Glacier and eventually, Canada. We booked the tipi for $75/night. Two double beds and a dresser - plenty of blankets. The ranch is a few miles from Kalispell and about 30 minutes from Whitefish. It is a family owned ranch with lots of bunnies roaming about. There were also two...

We were lucky to be able to get a booking here in the summer. For fun we opted for the tepees for our stay.. Fun to stay authentic..little chilly at night but we had plenty of blankets and good beds..The owners and staff were super helpful and friendly. Highlights for us was an evening with live country music and a...

Who wants to go to Montana and stay in a hotel, right? Not me. (but if you want that kind of stay where people wait on you and know you by ROOM number, go ahead) I'm from South Carolina and I wanted to stay on a local family ranch and feel like a part of a Montana town and that's...
