I'm not sure that there are words to describe just how amazing this place is. We LOVED Mountain Sky. We stayed during the adults-only Wild West Adventures Week. The staff is awesome, fun, knowledgeable. Somehow they all know and remember you by name. The staff’s mission is to make this one of the best vacations you will ever have. Their...

MS exceeded our expectations in every way! It was appropriately ranch rustic with outstanding service and staff, top notch food and amazing riding, outdoor adventure and family fun programs. An hour from Billings, MT and 30 mins from Yellowstone.

My family of 6 just returned from a week at MSGR and as I can honestly say that in all of our travels it was hands down the best family vacation we have ever experienced. It is truly a special place with so many areas that deserve mentioning: The location/ranch itself- all I can say is that it is one...

We have been to Mt. Sky Guest Ranch 4 times now. Before my family went for a week recently, we told our kids that this would be the last trip despite having had three excellent prior experiences - after all, it's a big world out there. But Mountain Sky GR has raised the bar again vs. all other summer vacation...

We visited Mountain Sky for the first time and weren't disappointed. Hope to return another year. What was really pleasing was the quality of service and attention to detail. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Horse riding, trekking and all sorts of other activities, plus high class food.

This past week was excellent. We met fabulous families and made fabulous friends. We also made so many memories and had unforgettable experiences every day.

Mountain Sky Guest Ranch exists in it's own time frame. The days are long but never boring, filled with outdoor activities as well as indoor spa treatments. The employees know your name from the moment you check in. Wranglers like Dillon and Chase keep guests laughing and safe while on a horse. All-around workers like Marley, Sarah and Amanda make...

I have visited the ranch three other times with my family and Mountain Sky is one of our most favorite places. This time I decided to try the Women's Wild West Week with a few friends. What a fantastic week we had. The service and food were impeccable, as always. I traveled with friends who had never ridden horses before...

Picture a place where you can read on a porch with a beautiful view or by a crackling fire; be guided on horseback through majestic scenery where you can view elk, deer, birds and wild flowers; eat delicious meals with old and new friends, learn to fly-fish, take a trip to Yellowstone, take yoga classes, have a massage, swim, relax...

“These are rustic, yet elegant, cabins. Cabins closer to the main lodge are much more convenient and equally quiet.”
