“Wonderful place to stay and explore!”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a wonderful experience at Erik's Ranch. So many things to do around the ranch and a short drive to other amazing destinations. The rooms were cozy and clean at the lodge. The members and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. This would be a perfect getaway for families, groups and family reunions.

“Great family vacation spot - beautiful home in a peaceful, scenic location.”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have stayed at the sister property "Erik's Ranch Guest House" twice previously (just 2 miles down the road from the Main House). This time we took 3 generations of our family to stay at Erik's Ranch Main House in July. The house is stunning, scenery is unbelievably beautiful, pool a very inviting feature and location was perfect.

The House - understated elegance. With a house full of people from ages 17 to 72, we still had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the many features of the house. There was much "oohing" and "awwing" over the gourmet kitchen when we first arrived - it was wonderful to have enough room for multiple people to prepare food. The spacious dining room allowed for all of us to come together around the table in the evening to share about our experiences during the day.

Regarding the experiences. The Erik's Ranch properties are centrally located between Bozeman (for a taste of the urban Montana experience) and Yellowstone National Park. We drove to Yellowstone early one morning to meet up with a private tour guide. All 14 of us and the guide spent the day experiencing the nature and history of Yellowstone - a trip thoroughly enjoyed by every member of the family! The remainder of our time was spent on whitewater rafting on the Yellowstone River, hiking, swimming in the private pool, and general enjoyment of the stunning mountain views. On previous stays at the Erik's Ranch Guest House, we took a guided snowmobile trip through Yellowstone, drove to Bridger for a day of skiing, and had a guided fly fishing expedition. The location of this vacation property could not be better, regardless of the time of year!

The pool - words cannot adequately describe this pool - the younger members of the family thoroughly enjoyed its size and privacy.

The location - in addition to its central location regarding activities - there is not enough that I can say to adequately describe the experience of staying at the Erik's Ranch properties in Montana. From the stunning mountain views from sunrise to sunset, to the sound of the bubbling stream while on a hike, to the early morning visit from a doe and her THREE fawns, to an evening sighting of a coyote trotting up the hill behind the house - this is UNPLUGGED at its finest.

Finally, regarding the mission of Erik's Ranch & Retreats - I am so excited that by simply staying at one of the Erik's Ranch properties, I am helping to enrich the lives of young adults with autism. You can experience all of this AND help others too by taking a vacation to Erik's Ranch. . . what are you waiting for?

All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you, for your generous review. I am so glad you took advantage of all that Montana has to offer. By this spring we hope to have scenic trail rides up and running at this location that might just top your list of experiences with us in Montana. Riding horses through this wild, rugged landscape brings a new sense of being part of it all that I hope our guests find both grounding and relaxing. Thank you for supporting our mission and having a fantastic time doing it! I look forward to having you stay with us again in the future. Warmly, Kathryn Nordberg Founder & CEO"

“Amazing room far exceeds any hotel -- and at a great price!”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wow. I rented a room at Erik's main house which operates like a lodge or inn. The rooms are gorgeous and all guests have access to the great room(s!), beautiful kitchen, deck with amazing views and a giant pool under cover. I have never seen anything like this -- plus by staying here I help fund a non-profit that benefits young adults with autism. Everything is so beautifully appointed and the 360 degree views made me fall in love with this part of Montana all over again.

“Specatular House with Majestic Views”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This property is amazing. The house is elegant and comfortable, with an amazing kitchen and fabulous pool. There are breathtaking views everywhere you turn.

We experienced our own personal rainbow in the valley and were able to see both the beginning and end from the kitchen window!

So conveniently located to Yellowstone, that we went back multiple times! Can't wait to plan another trip.

“Perfect for our Crew”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our office used Erik's ranch for our summer retreat and it could not have been a more perfect location. The house and property were so clean and well-kept. Tons of space to relax and hangout. We enjoyed the property, having a bonfire, the pool area, deck, and the expansive yard for games. Thanks for helping us have a great retreat!

“Wonderful location to get away from it all...”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We recently hosted our company retreat at Erik's Ranch within the Main House, Pool House and Creekside Cabin. Everyone had a wonderful time with plenty of space and activities to enjoy. We would definitely return and many employees were interested in returning for personal events and vacations. I would highly recommend this location. Everyone we worked with including Larry and Jake were wonderful and overly accommodating to any requests or questions we had. 5 stars!

This ranch was so worth the price. The home is extremely nice, relaxing, provides tons of room for cooking, lounging and has great views. The pictures truly don't do it justice!
