The cabin was BEAUTIFUL!! The views were breathtaking! When we arrived it had just finished raining and there was a double rainbow :) The cabin was everything as it said online, whewww. The extras the owners thought of were very nice (plastic bags, Tupperware, odds & ends). The beds were comfy & everything was very clean:) My son was a little afraid of the moose, deer, & antelope heads but aside from that, it was wonderful! We took several side trips to Yellowstone & another to nearby Emerald Lake. We also ate at the local restaurant in Fishtail, very nice, friendly people:-) We would definitely stay here again :-)

This is my third stay at Panorama Ranch and it remains one of our family's favorite vacation destinations. The property and home have spectacular views. You can watch the sun rise and then watch it set from the living room or deck. The house is extremely well-kept with a great layout. Master suite is downstairs and additional rooms are upstairs; all with the same beautiful views as the main living areas. The kitchen is fully supplied with everything needed for cooking or baking. We appreciated that cooking staples like flour, sugar, spices, coffee and filters were here when we arrived. The living room is comfortable and full of light. There are gas fireplaces in the living room and one upstairs bedroom and a wood-burning fireplace in the master suite. The house is very tastefully furnished. The deck allows outdoor living in the warmer months. The location allow unobstructed views of the Beartooth Mountains and the Crazy Mountains. While in the area my son enjoyed exploring the large ranch area and we regularly saw deer, rabbits, wild turkeys, sandhill cranes and grouse. We also enjoyed whitewater rafting and horseback-riding during our summer visit and sledding on the property during our winter visit. While we did not fish, the Stillwater River Valley is known for excellent fly-fishing. We ventured into Billings (1 hour away) on each visit for some shopping and eating out. We enjoyed a day at an indoor water park while there was snow on the ground. We also visited a small local park called Prarie Dog Town which is about 45 minutes northwest of Absarokee and taking the back road to this park full of lively prarie dogs is a nice side trip. On one trip we went into Bozeman (2 hours away) and saw the excellent dinosaur museum there. We also explored the university campus and had two great meals downtown. After staying at the house on our summer trip we stayed several days in Yellowstone National Park where seeing the wolves in Lamar Valley was a highlight. We also saw elk, bears, and bison. Yellowstone is like no other national park. The geysers are unbelievable! Staying at Panorama Ranch has provided adventure and relaxation for our family. It allows for a unique vacation experience with as much excitement or relaxation as you prefer. I hope to return many more times.
