Overlooking the northwest corner of Yellowstone Park on the eastern slope of the Continental Divide, we are located on the Taylor Fork of the Gallatin River. 2012 was our 100th Anniversary and the Kelsey family continues to take a deep interest in seeing that you enjoy every minute of your visit. We’ve been providing family-oriented ranch vacations for over 65 years. Riding, fishing, hiking, evening activities, great food – you will have so much fun, you will not want to return home! Come enjoy our secluded mountain location at 7,000 feet surrounded by millions of acres of National Forest and the Taylor-Hilgard Wilderness. The ranch provides a mixed assortment of riding and a select variety of unspoiled trout waters.
The Nine Quarter Circle is magical… our guests say that, year after year (and even many years later) it feels like “time stands still” here. Come discover Big Sky Country and completely lose yourself in the glorious environment and unsurpassed mountain beauty that you just have to experience!

We serve many of our meals family style. The breakfast is served to you as a family, lunch is a wonderful home cooked meal with adults at their own tables and children at their appropriate age range tables. Dinner is served early to the children and suited to their tastes. Adults enjoy Happy Hour in our lounge, BYOB, but we provide ice, mixers, and appetizers. Adult dinner is served afterwards with a nightly special, halibut, pork tenderloin, prime rib, and fresh salads, breads and tempting desserts. All meals are hearty home-cooked style meals, fresh ingredients, all breads and desserts are made on-site daily. We happily accommodate special diets & vegetarian meals.
Our main activities are horseback riding and fly-fishing. There is excellent hiking in the area on your own. Our rides go out twice a day and we offer two all day rides for the intermediate to advanced riders. We have a weekly pack trip at an additional charge. A Gymkhana, or games on horseback, along with a softball game, a lecture on Native Americans or wildlife, hay ride, campfire and square dance are some of the varied activities each week.
You may also choose to take a whitewater raft trip, a zipline tour, or a guided tour of Yellowstone Park. Links to providers of these services can be found on our website.
We have an excellent children’s program with a babysitter who takes care of the Small Fry group, the infant to five year olds. Those that are capable are taken on a lead-around ride once a day. The Kiddie Wrangler takes the Rough Riders, children six to nine, out on trail rides and they also eat lunch and dinner with other children of similar age ranges. The children are taken on an all day picnic once a week as well and play games after dinner until the adults are done with their dinner. Family time is essential with a sprinkling of “alone” time.
