Lonesome Spur Ranch


Lonesome Spur Ranch
Montana USA
Come and visit with a real Montana guest ranch family. This is an authentic fifth generation working cattle ranch resting in the Clarks Fork Valley, between the Pryor Mountains and the Beartooth Mountains. From the rustic lodge you can enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets, watch white tail and mule deer, an occasional elk, mountain sheep or moose, the howl of the coyotes and the fleeting sight of the red fox. You are invited to participate in the day to day activities of this working ranch and family, with plenty of riding to fill each of your days. And after the work is done, there is always time to have a little fun! Ask Nicholas Evans, author of the "Horse Whisperer". Mr. Evans stayed at the ranch while doing the research for his best selling novel turned motion picture. The Lonesome Spur was the original model for Tom Booker's grandparents' homestead, looking out over the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River. "From its crest you could see the river curving around like a castle moat and in the distance the snowy peaks of the Pryor and Beartooth Mountains."
Guests are invited to join the wranglers on daily checking the cattle, water holes and fences and the condition of the grass on the range. The summer and fall ranges consist of approximately 30,000 acres and the home ranch is approximately 1,200 acres. In addition to the everyday ranching activities, our guests are also given the opportunity to participate in exciting horseback activities such as team penning, cutting, sorting, team roping and fun games.
From mid-June to September there is a weekly optional 2 day camp-out ride available. Ride the range, check cattle and then when the day is done, sit around the campfire, eat supper swapping stories of the day! The next morning, drink camp coffee and eat breakfast and pack some lunch, then it’s off to catch your horse, check cows and come home to the ranch for supper!
Our advice to all riders: Sit deep in your saddle, take a long rein and don’t spit against the wind! In a week you’ll learn to appreciate the value of this wisdom!
