You’ve no doubt heard that the best places are hard to find. By that standard, Canyon Creek Guest Ranch is positively outstanding. “Unplugged” and “off the grid”, 17 miles from the nearest highway, hidden amidst some 500,000 acres of wild lands in the Pioneer Mountains of Southwest Montana, Canyon Creek is also infinitely removed from the usual concepts of guest lodging or ranch stays. The ranch is so remote it’s literally off the grid and our electrical power is generated on site. Our new loft cabins are duplex cabins that allow accommodations for up to 4 people. Our original log cabins are also duplex cabins that will also accommodate 4 people. We offer one cozy single cabin that 2 people can enjoy. The lodge is a great gathering place for meals and relaxing.
Our dining room serves up a hearty Montana ranch fare in a relaxed atmosphere. This is a time to savor wholesome food and enjoy the company of fellow guests. We serve our homemade meals family style and are able to meet the needs of specialty diets. Included in our dinners are savory appetizers and wine. Please bring your own liquor and beer if you wish. Suggested attire for meals is casual.
Amidst the magnificent contours of this extraordinary land, there are endlessly winding rivers and streams, and six perfectly clear alpine lakes, each your own paradise. You might fish any of these waters for rainbow, cutthroat and brook trout, or spend a day on the fabled Big Hole River one of the last places in the lower 48 to pursue rare Fluvial Arctic Grayling from private access with local guides. All this crystal clear water and air at this elevation means world-class wildlife and botanical habitat. Canyon Creek is home to ample populations of deer, elk, moose, mountain lions, bighorn sheep, bald eagles and dozens of other species. You’ll also have a chance to seek out countless species of wildflowers, including lovely calypso fairy slipper orchids and others that grow only where the air and water is exceptionally pure. To ponder the past is to stimulate creativity and curiosity, and here, in the traces of pioneer settlement and the ambitious gold and silver mining boom, you’ll find stories of opportunity, hardship, great rewards and even bigger dreams. In modern times, very few people have traveled this way to see the century-old remnants of an abandoned silver mining ghost town, formerly with a population of 7,000, or the beehive-shaped kilns that once made charcoal for iron ore smelting. These ancient remains of a lost era and the almost palpable sense of time are yours to experience. With miles and miles of mountain trails that take you to the tops of mountains or to secret clear streams in remote canyons, you could hike or ride for days. Canyon Creek will give you as much or as little guidance as you like: on foot or horseback, you can take a guided adventure, then enjoy a campsite that’s been fully stocked and set up for you. Or you might prefer to hike and explore with the ranch naturalist. Another must-try option: the wranglers can outfit you with trail-sure horses and take you on the ride of your life!
Canyon Creek Guest Ranch does not offer a specific Children’s Program, but welcomes children of all ages and we encourage family activities in which all family members participate, together. We will design specific children’s activities, at your request.
