Lone Mountain Ranch: Packages and Rooms

Located in Big Sky, Montana, United States

Guests may choose from among several seasonal packages, with options tailored to the lodge’s signature experiences, including fly-fishing, Nordic skiing, downhill skiing and snowboarding, and exploring Yellowstone National Park. The Discovery packages, as well as the à la carte B&B option, are ideal for guests seeking a more varied experience in the Montana wilderness. Note that all packages, with the exception of Big Sky B&B, require a four-night minimum stay.

Lone Mountain’s 24 guest accommodations are a mix of historical lodgings and newer log cabins, all constructed using locally sourced timber. The dwellings spread across the heart of the property, dotting a verdant meadow edged by pine groves. Many are set along the banks of the North Fork Creek, and some feature views of the surrounding Rockies. Each of the rustic, cozy lodgings has either a wood stove or stone fireplace and is styled to reflect the area’s Western heritage, with hickory and log furnishings, patchwork quilts, and other local handicrafts.

Every fall, the meadows and forests surrounding Yellowstone erupt with the sound of elks bellowing and sparring. The annual rutting season is the most dramatic time of the year for elks, as males fight to guard their harems. Join National Geographic experts and local naturalists at Lone Mountain Ranch this fall for a close-up look at this exciting natural phenomenon, and encounter the wildlife of Yellowstone on hikes, horseback rides, and helicopter tours.

  • Observe elk in the wild during their annual rut using high-tech scopes and optics on guided excursions to nearby Gallatin National Forest.
  • Take in aerial views of Greater Yellowstone on a helicopter tour with the experienced lodge naturalist.
  • Learn about elk and other legendary wildlife of Yellowstone during presentations and exhibits put on by National Geographic experts.
