Escape to Big Sky Country and the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch

Author: By Iris Dean, a Feature and Travel Writer for USA Travel Magazine where you can Explore America's Backyard:

Lewis and Clark crossed paths with the Native American tribes who were among the first to inhabit the state of Montana. Later came fur trappers, traders, and then the Roman Catholic missionaries, who established Saint Mary's Mission in the Bitterroot Valley; believed to be the first permanent settlement in Montana. Today, Montana is an adventures paradise filled with endless possibilities: from to mountain biking and white water rafting to hiking the back country, there's something exhilarating to do around every bend.

Travelers can explore all that Montana has to offers or just getaway from the daily grid with a visit to the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, just south of Bozeman, Montana. The ranch covers over 6,000 acres of beautiful, rugged countryside in the southeastern corner of the Montana Rockies. It's a peaceful feeling to slip on a horse and ride through acres of flower-filled meadows or take a leisurely stroll along the
pristine Big Creek. Maybe it's the thought of being far from the hustle and faced pace of city life. Perhaps, it's the staff at the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, who greeted us with friendly smiles and made each a day a memorable experience.

Whether relaxing on the porch sipping our coffee watching the sunrise or casting a line in a mountain stream, we felt right at home at the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch. The food is a refreshing treat to our taste buds as well. After the generous breakfast buffet we rafted down the Yellowstone River and spent the rest of our afternoon lounging by the pool. The highlight of the evening was the great company of the wranglers who taught us a few moves on the dance floor, and of course the delicious
gourmet dinner prepared by the chef.

Families find that the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch is the perfect summer getaway where they can spend time together enjoying a variety of fun activities. Among the many activities at the ranch to enjoy are horseback rides, pool games, fishing in the ranch pond, arts and crafts, and nature walks. The ranch also has special Couples & Singles Adventures, and Corporate Trips available.

Looking for some simple solitude and a good fishing spot?

The Mountain Sky Guest Ranch has remote cabins available next to Big Creek near the lower ranch, which are great for fishing enthusiasts. To experience Montana's pristine wilderness request Mountain Sky Guest Ranch's rustic cabin hidden. The cabins are close enough to the guest ranch to visit, yet far enough away to enjoy your own piece of paradise.

For those who travel often, whether for business or pleasure, the best part is returning home. Then there are those special places like the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch where you are welcomed like family, and it becomes your home away from home.
