The Ranch is a large log structure, warm and rustic, with a Western decor interior, ‘ranch-style’, featuring a spacious conference room with phone, fax, and video hook-ups. All guest rooms have their own outside entrance, a covered front porch, and private bathroom. Outside, each room’s front porch offers a countryside view of the surrounding mountain ranges, the ever-changing Montana big sky and wildlife in the fields. The common areas, lodge rooms and duplex suites are decorated with a western theme and furnished with locally-made accessories. The ranch offers all the modern conveniences with that comfortable cowboy touch.

The Madison River alone offers 100 miles of fishable water and truly awesome scenery; 5 other rivers are within driving distance, the Beaverhead, Ruby, BigHole, Gallatin, and Yellowstone. Jack Creek runs through the Ranch’s land, and ‘Jurassic Pond’ is a private pond belonging to MVR which is well-stocked for practice casting. Anglers will wade, or float in a drift-boat. 11 different guides are available, which means anglers may be able to consult several expert approaches and opinions during their stay. Situated in one of the loveliest locations in the Madison Valley, our ranch offers fly fishermen an ideal base for wade or float fishing the upper and lower Madison. Other fly-fishing options are limitless, we offer guided fishing adventures on Blue Ribbon trout streams such as the Beaverhead, Big Hole, Gallatin and Yellowstone rivers. These world famous trout streams each have their own unique characteristics and challenges, making them must fish rivers.
