Our location affords the best of all worlds – close to Yellowstone National Park, yet set apart and peacefully away from the big crowds. For generations of families, it has proven a truly special experience that uniquely captures the Western character and unrivaled beauty of America's last, best place. There are twenty-four crew members during the summer months; we live on the ranch and all are encouraged to take part in activities when schedules allow.
