While staying true to our Montana dude ranch’s 1920’s vintage heritage, we’re also committed to making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as it can be. Over the years, the Covered Wagon Ranch has retained every bit of its original charm, but has gradually gained the sweet refinement and gentility that comes only to a place devoted for over four generations to providing rugged, yet luxurious dude ranch lodging for its guests’ comfort and pleasure. Our Montana guest ranch has 10 historic log guest cabins, accommodating approximately 20 total guests. Each cabin has a slightly different unique character, with 5 two bedroom, one bath cabins; and 5 one bedroom, one bath cabins. The cabins retain much of their original 1920’s character, but comfortable beds and bedding allow you to rest up each evening for the next full day of mountain enjoyment.
Covered Wagon Ranch offers a range of activities from horseback, hiking, fishing, inner tubing, horse shoes and roping.
