Description: We are proud to be ranked #2 in the 'Top Ten Hideaways' ' Outside Magazine 2004 Traveler 'Whether you are looking for a summer escape, fantastic fishing, or a splendid hunt, the Burns will pamper you with superb food, gear, skilled guides and well trained horses.' Jim Zumbo, Outdoor Life Magazine.
A guidebook states that the 'Bob' is 2,400 square miles of rugged, unspoiled wilderness that could change your life forever. Another describes that 1.5 million acres as, 'land and rivers and mountains still pretty much the way that God had fashioned them.' For once, guidebook palaver understates reality.
We have been outfitting in this area more than twenty years. We rely on our experience to satisfy our guests. Additionally, we have perfected all of the necessary components to assure you of the finest wilderness experience possible with emphasis on menus, livestock and equipment, camp locations, a helpful, friendly crew, and a lot of personal attention from us.
We are pleased to offer deluxe, horseback pack trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness for fishing, sightseeing, photography or big game hunting. This wilderness, our Nation's largest and most beautiful, can only be entered on foot or horseback, assuring you unequaled scenery, solitude and an abundance of wildlife. We have an excellent string of reliable, sure-footed mountain trail horses and pack mules. Our well-equipped wilderness camps offer the utmost in comfort and a first class table set for our guests. The Bob Marshall Wilderness ranch also provides a gorgeous lodge nestled between the Mission Mountain Wilderness and the Bob Marshall Wilderness in the heart of the Swan Valley.
We constructed the lodge on a hillside which overlooks the beautiful Swan Valley. From the expansive windows of the lodge the view is breathtaking and gives the impression that you are deep in the heart of the wilderness. Whether relaxing out on the main deck or from within, the view encompasses the magnificent Swan Mountain Range to the east, the glacier peaks of the rugged Mission Mountain Range to the west, and the expansive Swan Valley below. It is truly a spectacular setting.
Directions: The Bob Marshall Wilderness Ranch provides a gorgeous lodge nestled between the Mission Mountain Wilderness and the Bob Marshall Wilderness, in the heart of the Swan Valley. Although our lodge is very remotely located, being surrounded on all sides, but one, by Forest Service land, it is only a few miles from a state highway affording easy accessibility. Our lodge is located 21 miles north of Seeley Lake, Montana, on State Highway 83.
