We would love to be a part of your special day.  To find out more about our wedding package




Because our location is nearly the geographic center of Montana, our guests will be within a day’s drive from any site Montana. Yellowstone Park is a day trip from here. Within two hours drive from here you can enjoy just about any cultural or recreational activity the state has to offer. Whether skiing at Bridger Bowl or Showdown, snowmobiling, rafting, fishing, hunting, or site seeing, the list could go on endlessly. 

Several major airports are within two hours, making it easy to fly in and drive here without major traffic.


Outdoor Kitchen, Patio, & Fireplace

This luxurious outdoor living space is a great spot for rehearsal dinners, birthday parties and family dinners. Summer shade, an outdoor sink, sandstone rock countertops, barbecues and grills, archways, deck tables and chairs, evening romantic lighting, a crackling fire and the smell of food make this place a one of a kind piece of art with a function.

This space may be available for our guests with advance permission. Many nights we would be glad to share this with you or allow the use of this space by yourselves.

This has been a favorite place for private parties and small weddings. Occasionally you might hear music coming from here as the sun sets and the cool evening breeze makes the fire needed. The sunsets from here in the summer months are breathtaking looking up at the Crazy Mountains and the Musselshell River Valley. It really doesn't get much better than this. 

Hunting & Fishing

The American Fork Creek runs through the ranch and the Musselshell River is nearby. They have smart Brown Trout and, with the proper licenses, may be available for your enjoyment. The Musselshell Valley and the local mountain ranges are known to have many whitetail deer, antelope, mule deer, game birds, bear, lion, and elk. I am sure I forgot something. Bottom line is, if you like to use a gun, bow, or hunt with a camera, it can probably be done from here. Public hunting may be open nearby on the Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks' block management parcels or 30 minutes away in one if the mountain ranges.


Horses & Stable

Our beautiful fir barn is equipped with stalls filled with fresh shavings from the wood shop next door. Round corrals and a hay feeder sit nearby, ready for the horses. These spaces may be available for guest’s enjoyment, with special permission. On the south side of The Barnsion is a tack room, fresh year around water, a round corral, and a beautiful fir barn with stalls filled with fresh shavings from the wood shop next door.

These spaces may be available for guest’s enjoyment, with special permission. Ask us about bringing your horse and taking trail rides around the ranch without having the restraints of staying on a specific trail and explore the natural beauty and fresh air.

Hiking & Walks

Take a walk to the creek and enjoy yourself without having the restrictions of a designated trail. Enjoy the sunrise with a hike in the fresh Montana air. Because it may change daily, please ask us where it would be safe to explore. There are times when it would not be advisable to be where the bulls may be fighting for their pecking order or a momma cow has just laid out a newborn calf. Remember this is not a 20 acre parcel with a bed and breakfast, so we will have a place for you to walk and explore.

Bicycles & ATV's

Bicycles are always welcome and ATV's are welcome with some reservations. There are times when we cannot have an ATV moving through the livestock or riding into the hay ground. I am sure we can find a suitable place for you yo enjoy here on the ranch. Many experienced riders may want to enjoy the open trails in the United States Forest Service only about 30 minutes away.

Deluxe Outdoor Bathrooms

Our deluxe outdoor bathrooms are a fantastic option for weddings, events, RV's or anyone staying in a tent.  The extra toilets and shower will help accommodate event the largest groups.  It may say "Outhouse" on the side but these bathrooms are fully equipped, including a shower in one.

RV Hookups and Tent Camping

We have a couple full RV hookups and several options for tent camping sites.
