About the Property

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Our newly built and completely renovated western-style lodge rests just feet from the banks of the Mission Creek, a sparkling stream with an uncanny number of cutthrout, rainbow and brown trout. Not only so, but these accommodations are surrounded by 4,500 private acres on the Mission Ranch (a working cattle ranch since 1949) with exclusive views of the majestic Absaroka Mountains, as well as a spring creek fishery, 3 miles of premium fly-fishing on the Yellowstone River and 8 miles of Mission Creek. We can host up to 14 people for vacations, reunions, retreats and we can host larger groups for weddings and corporate events.

With over 4,000 square feet, the Mission Ranch Lodge offers 5 uniquely designed and decorated rooms that reflect our ranching heritage as well as the rich history of our area. Each room is spacious and has it's own private bathroom. Our large fully equipped kitchen has everything needed to prepare and enjoy your meals. You may gather together for your meals at our custom built dining table with stunning views of the Absaroka Mountains or you may prefer our covered porch dining table overlooking Mission Creek. In addition, the lodge also has a large spacious living room with gas fireplace, two additional sitting areas with flat screen TV's, laundry facilities with an extra refrigerator,and a two-car garage.


As mentioned, our 5 spacious bedrooms are tastefully decorated and have their own private bathrooms.

THE MISSION CREEK MASTER SUITE – The only room on the west side of the Lodge for maximum privacy. Overlooks the Mission Creek, private entrance to the porch, king size bed, and large master bathroom, which includes a stand-alone shower, vanity with 2 sinks, Jacuzzi tub, and walk-in closet.

THE YELLOWSTONE ROOM - Honors the many world-famous trout fisheries nearby and the fisherman who are drawn to them. Twin beds, private bath, and views of Sheep Mountain.

THE W QUARTER CIRCLE ROOM - Bears the Ranch’s own W Quarter Circle brand, which is used on our stock at the Mission Ranch. The western motif honors the pioneer spirit of our grandfather, Almon Walborn, who purchased the ranch in 1948. Queen bed, private bath, and views of the Absaroka Mountains.

THE FORT PARKER ROOM - Decorated in a Native American theme to honor the Crow Indians who used to live here. Fort Parker, the first Crow Indian Agency, resided on our land from 1869 to 1875. Queen bed, small private bath, and views of the cottonwood trees along Mission Creek.

THE LEWIS AND CLARK SUITE - This large suite honors the undaunted explorers who traveled through Montana two centuries ago. According to local legend, Capt. Clark camped near our Yellowstone River bottoms on his return trip to the East, where he allegedly carved canoes out of several of our cottonwood trees. Very spacious with a queen bed, two twins, pull-out sofa, trundle bed, and a seating area with a flat screen TV and satellite on demand. Incredible views of the Absaroka Mountains.

Guests of the Mission Ranch Lodge will have exclusive access to our 4,500 acres and can enjoy a variety of activities on the ranch, including fishing, hunting, bird watching, nature hikes, camping, ranch tours, horse activities and more.

Flowing right through the Mission Ranch is the Yellowstone River (the longest free-flowing river in the contiguous United States), Mission Creek, and our own private natural Spring Creek Fishery--all teeming with prize-winning brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout.

YELLOWSTONE RIVER
Guests will enjoy 3 miles of exclusive Yellowstone River frontage with excellent wade fishing throughout the property. Simply sit back, relax, and wait for the trout to rise.

LENGTH OF ACCESS – 3 miles
FEE – free to Lodge guests
DIFFICULTY – Moderate
TERRAIN – A fast flowing river with deep pockets and shallow rocky areas; Great place to practice casting and improve skills while looking for a fish of a lifetime.


MISSION CREEK
The Mission Creek runs parallel to Mission Creek Road and offers 8 miles of exclusive premium fly-fishing. For those with the right skills, the creek boasts beautiful, prize-winning trout. But be warned: the terrain is tricky. Only the more advanced fishermen prevail.

LENGTH OF ACCESS – 8 miles
FEE - free to Lodge guests
DIFFICULTY – Advanced
TERRAIN – Foliage, overgrowth, and tall trees make casting difficult. For best results, avoid banks and simply fish from the middle of the creek.

SPRING CREEK FISHERY
Our ¾ mile natural spring creek fishery has been developed and fenced and is best in early spring and late fall. Prize trout lurk in the pools of this pristine spring creek, but they may see you coming. This very technical fishing spot requires long leaders and light tippet.

LENGTH OF ACCESS – ¾ miles
FEE - free to Lodge guests
DIFFICULTY – Challenging
TERRAIN – Open and easily traversable; mossy areas; slow moving water in places

Not only is the fishing fantastic on our ranch, so is the hunting. The Mission Ranch Lodge offers exclusive access to our 4,500-acre cattle ranch for trophy white tail deer, antelope, and migratory waterfowl hunting. We also work with hunting guides to offer big game hunting trips for those interested in bringing home a trophy.

The Mission Ranch Lodge is the perfect get away for visitors who want to experience a truly authentic Montana vacation while enjoying modern, upscale, western accommodations.

Owner info

About the owner: Darcy LaBeau: I graduated from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Business Marketing. Currently I live in Billings Montana with my three amazing children. In addition to owning and operating our Mission Ranch family businesses, I am a corporate recruiter for the oil and gas industry and I also own my own design business, My Montana Interior Design. I spent my girlhood summers exploring the Mission Ranch with my grandparents who purchased the ranch in 1948. More recently, my family and I spend as much time at the Mission Ranch as possible fishing, camping, hunting, hiking, rafting and exploring the beautiful surroundings.
