Description: Montana River Ranch is a beautiful log cabin nestled into a cozy surrounding of cottonwood trees overlooking acres of farmland. Our newly constructed three-level log cabin lends itself to a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with a style of gracious living from years gone by. Experience Northeastern Montana's spectacular sunrises, sunsets and an abundance of wildlife across our entire ranch. The lodge is just minutes from the National Historic Sites of Fort Union, Fort Bufford and the Confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers.
The best way to experience the historical Lewis and Clark Expedition is on the Missouri River float trips. Canoe rentals are also available for your pleasure.
As we move through our ranch seasons you can have different opportunities and learn what life is like on our ranch. You can witness first hand irrigating crops, haying, cattle branding, cattle roundups and harvesting of grains and sugar beets. We give tours on our property and to nearby historical sites in Montana, such as Fort Union and North Dakota - Fort Bufford.
Photo opportunities are magnificent, and we have various hiking trails for your enjoyment. We also have an excellent golf course, Red Mike, for your pleasure as requested and reserved. Limo services available at your request.
We fish from both the shore and boat as we catch walleye, catfish, northern pike and goldeyes. Paddle fishing is also done at the Missouri River and Yellowstone Confluence, a short distance from our place.
A full home cooked breakfast is served 7:30 - 9:00 am in the dining area or in your room, upon request. We are pleased to accommodate extra meal guests, picnics or additional meal requests upon arrangements. Enjoy our setting for your private dinners, special events and small conferences. We will gladly assist you with any of your event planning, decorations, on-site catering and entertainment. Please contact us for rate information.
Our family is proud to offer a smoke free establishment and no pet policy for your comfort. Children are welcome.
