My husband and I went to the Mountain Sky Resort for a meeting and it was the most relaxing experience I have ever had. You totally disconnect and enjoy the beautiful country with tons to do. Beautiful cabins and scenery with a top of the line restaurant and bar plus tons to do for kids, if you want to do a family vacation.

This was my first visit to Mountain Sky Ranch and it was simply amazing. It all started with the incredibly warm welcome when we arrived at the ranch.
The daily rides and hikes were all I could have asked for
The staff at the range went above and beyond to make the experience perfect

Mountain Sky is our home away from home. For eight years I have been going there and for the last 4 years we have been going as a family. There are so many wonderful things to know about Mountain Sky. The people there are what make it our home away from home. They know us and make us feel so welcome every year. Each year they remember our "special requests" and we do not even have to ask any more! The atmosphere is so beautiful, cozy and relaxed. The service is impeccable and you feel like the biggest VIP there! The cabins are beautiful and clean and give a feel of true Montana. The food is out of this world! Chef Brian does a spectacular job! The riding and hiking is unsurpassed! The dining/bar staff, reservations/reception, wranglers, housekeepers, counselors, and "all around" staffers make this week the best week of our year! It is incredibly safe. My children feel independent there and safe at the same time...which makes us, as parents, feel very good. It is a true vacation for all. Each time we leave, we are counting the days until our next return to our "home away from home!"

Mountain Sky is by far the most fun your children will have. They will meet friends that they will keep in touch with. Most guests return the same week year after year. Horses, white water rafting, Yellowstone, peace and quiet, the staff, everything is top notch. Yancy and his team will make your stay an experience you will always remember.

We stumbled upon Mountain Sky back in the mid-90s and thought we would try it as a unique family experience. The week at Mountain Sky completely exceeded our expectations, and it became a week the entire family looks forward to every year. I had the chance to experience the ranch this year traveling for the first time as a solo visitor.

The ranch is in a secluded location adjacent to the Gallatin National Forest, and is the ideal vacation for outdoor enthusiasts with hiking, fishing, swimming, and world-class trails for horseback riding. The accommodations are well appointed and the food rivals many top restaurants with everything from seafood, beef and chicken dishes to incredible salads, sushi and deserts that would please even the most discriminating palate.

This is a truly relaxing get-away with limited access to the always connected on-line world. You will have the chance to trade in that signal for fresh air, clear water creeks, and an unrivaled view of Montana’s Big Sky country. It is effortless to engage in conversation with the staff and fellow guests, as well as enjoy activities from western dancing to breakfast rides.

The Ranch is located a short distance from the north entrance of Yellowstone Park allowing you the opportunity to also further experience some of the most beautiful and fascinating landscapes found anywhere.

Finally, and probably one of the most important elements of the Ranch is the staff and the service. You are treated more as family than a guest. They can accommodate almost any request, and warm and friendly staff of Mountain Sky is a key hallmark of their exceptional service. Absolutely one of the best weeks spent anywhere.

Our week-long visit to Mountain Sky (last week in Aug - Fall Round Up - No Kids) was truly a vacation to remember. The place, the staff (Amazing!), the food, the riding, the activities, the scenery, the stars, the location, the karma...all unsurpassed in my book. This is our second trip to a Montana ranch and Mountain Sky was the winner by far. We travelled with 2 other couples and I can honestly say we all rated this as a favorite vacation EVER!

Shout out to Yancey, Mark, Maria, Monica, Stacey and the staff. You will be in our hearts forever! We'll be back without a doubt!

Fall Roundup Week (aka, all adults) at Mountain Sky so exceeded our expectations that I've done nothing but rave about it since coming home! The ranch is a perfect combination of authentic western styling and friendly, relaxed service with the cleanliness and professionalism of a 5 star resort. The food was fabulous...varied and beautifully prepared buffets for breakfast and lunch, and plated gourmet selections for dinner. The riding program was perfect...great for all levels and accommodating to everyone. The Montana landscape was stunning...seeming to change on every ride and hike. Our husbands were delighted with the gorgeous golf course. The dinner ride, my personal favorite, was capped off with a lower ranch barbeque, dancing to a wonderful band as the sun set...and branding of our boots with the Mountain Sky logo!
The truly remarkable and delightful Mountain Sky staff anticipated every need. I couldn't imagine a better ranch vacation!
