Bonanza Creek Guest RanchBonanza Creek Guest Ranch
Martinsdale, Montana

Since the 1870's, Montana ranch hands have roamed the range and worked cattle along the banks of Bonanza Creek. A century later, very little has changed, the only difference is that now there's a place at the table for you. At the ranch, you ride to your ability, and do lots of it. Bonanza Creek is part of a working cattle ranch owning 1500 head of cattle on 25,000 acres. When you're not out "hitting the trail," you can go hiking, biking or just relaxing. Also great fun is the evening ride and cookout. You can help out at the ranch if you want to as well. You may be putting out salt, checking for sick or injured stock, or moving stock from one pasture to another. Also, you can test your fishing skills against feisty rainbow, cutthroat, or brook trout.

Cheff Guest RanchCheff Guest Ranch
Charlo, Montana

Located in the beautiful Mission Valley and nestled at the base of the majestic Mission Mountains, the Cheff Family owns and leases over 10,000 acres of ranch land. The view from the ranch is spectacular, you can literally see forever. Ninepipes and Kicking Horse reservoirs are in full view. Nothing beats relaxing on the deck of the lodge watching the sun go down after a long day of swimming, canoeing, fishing, and horseback riding. Guests are welcome to take part in the daily activities that occur while staying at the working cattle, moving the stock, picking hay, and irrigating. Each day guests go riding on the trails surrounding the ranch, through the woods, into gorgeous meadows, across streams and to beautiful mountain lakes.
