July 4th holiday vacation at a beautiful Montana Ranch

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful state to visit -- and we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. We spent 7 days in the Executive Suite -- just the two of us, so the size was perfect, but could have easily handled 6 adults. It was warm, but the air conditioning was wonderful to come home to at night. The photos are very good indicators of exactly what you get -- very well described. Thank you, Gary, for being a very good host and sharing your home with us. We appreciated your suggestions of what to see and do in the area, and your availability and inquiry to if we needed anything. We felt right at home and cooked many of our own meals. The deck and grill were used by us daily. The view of the Beartooth Mountains from the deck -- and the sunsets were just what we needed. Did I mention the fishing was good? And the horses were eating apples and carrots right from our hands by the end of the week. If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet place, Gary's home fits the bill. We already know we want to come back again, and have recommended his place to our family and friends. The parade and rodeo on the 4th of July is great fun too -- the Bull n Bear Bar and Grill has live music, and don't miss the pig races at Bearcreek, and so much to see and do in the Red Lodge area.

Montana living at its best!

  • 5 of 5

From the date of my arrival until the day of my departure, the Beartrap Ranch met all of my expectations. The cowboy/owner was available to answer any questions and give suggestions as to entertainment in the area. It's proximity to Cody, Wy. as well as the quaint town of Red Lodge makes this location perfect for visiting local venues. The home is a spectacular example of the owner's vision and artistry with stone. There was lots to do at the ranch from horse back riding, to relaxing in the hot tub, to playing in the game room. The master bedroom boasts the most spectacular view to wake up to. I loved the patio and the view of the Beartooth Mountains! What a great place to get to know Montana. I can't wait to go back and plan to visit again in the near future.
