A guest room at Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in Emigrant, Montana
Sprawling across 8,000 wooded acres, this ranch enjoys a perfect location for horseback riding and hiking, as well as world-class fly-fishing. It also features warm Western hospitality and stylish one-, two- and three-bedroom log cabins. Many of the accommodations date back to the 1920s and have been refurbished with luxuries such as rock fireplaces. All have gorgeous views. Just 30 miles from Yellowstone National Park, this working ranch has 130 horses for guest use, and trail rides showcase the majestic beauty of Paradise Valley. After a long day on the range, guests enjoy hayrides, Western dances (complete with instruction from wranglers) and fine cuisine served in the dining room or around a campfire beneath the star-filled sky. Additional perks include yoga sessions, a heated pool, spa treatments and a Johnny Miller-designed nine-hole golf course, as well as numerous kid-themed activities, from rock climbing to campfire sing-alongs.
