About Connie Townsend

The Townsend Ranch is family owned and operated.

Why Connie Townsend chose Russell Country

This property is so much more than a fully restored and beautiful mountain Cabin and Ranch House that offers privacy and seclusion. It also offers two private, stocked fishing ponds, thousands of acres of hiking, biking, snowmobiling, skiing, horseback riding and more.

What makes this cabin unique

Not many properties offer the privacy this property offers as well as the endless recreational opportunities. This will likely be a place where guests will want to build a tradition and come back to over and over again.

Our Favorite Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We come to the ranch every year sometimes just my wife and I or with family. Can not tell you how much we love this place. If you need to chill this is the place. You can not find any other place that is as quiet and beautiful surrounding plus some incredible fly fishing. Connie your host is the epitome of a Montana ranch family, friendly, accommodating and quickly you have a new friend. We stay at a lot of VRBO's and there is none better than this place. This is the place to truly experience eastern Montana.

Lovely Cabin on a Beautiful Ranch

  • 5 of 5

The Townsend's cabin was a lovely home base for a ski weekend at Showdown. It had a huge kitchen which was great for cooking for a big group. They were having some issues with the new fireplace, but worked really hard to get it up and running for us. Overall, the hosts were very communicative and hands-on. The entrance to one of the rooms in the cabin is through another room, or from the outside (just something to consider, especially for a winter stay). But we loved the cabin and had a great experience!

Amazing!! Beautiful!! Peaceful !!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful home! We have stayed here multiple times over the last years and ALWAYS had an amazing time. We stay at the house each year for the Red Ants Music festival and have our children, grandchildren and friends join us. The house is close to White Sulphur Springs but it's own world once you are there! Beautiful home, great pond for fishing and truly peaceful surroundings with wildlife (deer, badgers etc), pastures full of cows and fields of wild grasses and flowers. The Townsends (Connie and Will) have done a great job of creating a home that provides a sense of "on Walden Pond" in the West! As a special treat our aged English Mastiff comes along and truly feels she has found nirvana!

Connie is accommodating and when we are here we feel like we have "come home" and are among friends.

unexpected tranquility

  • 5 of 5

What a surprise to experience such a peaceful and comfortable stay ! From the gorgeous views to the cozy clean home we enjoyed our stay immensely. I stayed with a group of friends and all of us agreed this was by far the most beautiful setting and all of us want to return with our families.

Fun Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had 12 people in our party. We had dinner in Ringling then soaked in the natural hot springs in White Sulpher before retiring to the cabin. Pleanty of space and room for 12. I don't remember the last time I was in such a secluded spot where I could look over thousands of acres and not see another house. We are planning a snowmobile weekend in early 2016. We WILL be back! Thanks Townsend family for sharing your property with us. It made for the perfect weekend stay!
