Property description

Ideal vacation lodging: a beautiful ranch setting, apart from the traditional tourist scene, in comfortable, relaxed surroundings. CHAPS & SPURS HISTORIC BUNKHOUSE is one of 4 unique accommodations we offer. All are in a private setting for guests looking for lodging with a personal touch. If your vacation is centered around exploring this unique area, you are within minutes of area activities and attractions. The East Entrance to Glacier Park is 15 minutes away, Many Glacier Valley is 20 minutes, Two Medicine Valley is an hour's scenic drive as is Waterton National Park in Canada. The Ranch is an ideal place to return to after a day of activity; to kick back, relax and plan your next day's adventure. If you prefer time to read, write, photograph or other more solitary pursuits, you will enjoy the space, privacy and inspiring natural ambience. All our vacation rentals offer the serenity, privacy and views that Paul Ranch Montana LLC is famous for.

Centrally located for a variety of destinations and pursuits, this rustic one-room bunkhouse is comfortable, and well-maintained. It is decorated with historic period furnishings, except for the beds (we want our guests to get a good night's sleep). For the budget minded traveler, our Chaps & Spurs Historic Bunkhouse will help you stretch your travel dollar. Sitting on the porch morning and evening is a favorite spot of the Ranch owner...feeling the fresh air, listening to the natural sounds, gazing at the mountains, watching the gold finches drink and bathe in the adjacent pond, and the butterflies flutter about in the peacefulness of the setting. In a sense, you'll truly be roughing it (just like the cowboys)...there's electricity and a brand new private washhouse with shower, sink and toilet. It's a rustic taste of Montana's past! Potable water is provided. The Bunkhouse is equipped with a microwave, a small fridge, a coffeemaker & coffee fixin's, paper plates, cups, plastic wear, linens, blankets, and towels. Daily service to your accommodations allows you to concentrate on your vacation, not housekeeping.

A covered porch off the front door offers mountain views of Glacier Park that are beyond belief and is a perfect place to dine, to start your day with morning coffee or to end your evening relaxing and viewing wildlife that inhabit the property. A large open field invites an evening stroll; equipment is on hand for outdoor games and activities. This is a plus for families traveling with children.

RANCH MONTANA PAUL LLC proudly announces it has been accepted as a Silver level GreenLeader into the new GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the U.S.

WILD HEART REFUGE, comprised of 155 acres, has been set aside on the Ranch as a wildlife refuge. The commitment of Paul Ranch Montana is to leave acreage undisturbed to support indigenous wildlife that live on, give birth on and migrate across the land.
