Guest Ranches - Recommendations - Summer 2010?

My friend and I are going to Big Sky in July for a week to do some hiking and fly fishing. Have read some of the reviews of several of the guest ranches, specifically 320 Guest Ranch, Lone Mountain, Mountain Meadows, Mountain Sky, and a few others. Hope to stay at a place away from crowds but with easy access to trails, beautiful setting with nice accommodations but luxury lodging not necessary, and guides available if needed. Unfortunately will have to be available on-line to do some work while there so internet access required.

We've never been to this part of the country before so looking for advice or recommendations from anyone who has experienced visits to ranches in this area.

Mountain Sky Guest Ranch is very nice, and has the activities you are looking for, but it is not in Big Sky. It's several hours away in the Paradise Valley south of Livingston, and just north of YNP. It has all the same gorgeous scenery, fishing, and prximity to YNP, etc. as Big Sky -- just further north and east.

Take a look at Covered Wagon Ranch near Gallatin Gateway, it is pretty much the closest guest/dude ranch to Big Sky. No idea if they have Internet...

About 35 minutes south of Big Sky on US-191 toward West Yellowstone.

You might look into 7th Ranch Garryowen, Mt. at site of Little Big Horn between Billings and Sheridan. We stopped by last year. Fishing and sightseeing easy day trips.
