Large, very well appointed and deluxe guest ranch in the Paradise Valley.
Wonderful property in the country a 15-20 min ride out of Livingston. Good fishing nearby. Great house.
We love Erik's Ranch. This is our second stay at the ranch. The lodge is a perfect retreat for the family and the views from the deck can't be beat! Breathtaking! We enjoyed the staff and took advantage of the horseback riding offered, great horses, amazing views and wonderful guides. We'd highly recommend for anyone!
Heartfelt gratitude for your lovely review! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed our little slice of paradise the second year in a row! I hope you enjoyed dinners on our deck. Thrilled to hear you enjoyed your trail rides, too!

My stay at the Pine Creek/Trail Creek property was nothing short of fabulous! The house is phenomenal---gourmet kitchen, elegant main room and formal dining room, spacious bedrooms with private baths--but it's the outdoors which will bring me back! The views in Paradise Valley are breath-taking.The east-facing deck looking at Antelope Butte is the perfect spot to enjoy coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The pool and poolhouse is the perfect addition to the property. And the arena and horses complete the Montana experience. But my favorite memory is from the quiet and solitude. Only minutes away from town, yet I felt a sense of ease the moment I arrived. The acreage supplied ample walking grounds, and the stars were jaw dropping. I can't wait to book my next stay.
Thank you so much for your heartfelt review! You summed your whole experience up perfectly! Thank you for your lovely review and for supporting our mission of providing limitless opportunities for our members; your support means so much.
Please come and stay with us again!
Highly recommend a stay at this unique and pituresque property!
I recently enjoyed a stay with my mother in the Lodge at Erik's Ranch. The Lodge has a variety of room options. I chose a room on the lower level - a beautiful bedroom with a sleigh bed and plush bedding. We had access to a gourmet kitchen, comfy furniture, a pool table, and gorgeous mountain views. The living spaces are spacious and beautifully decorated. I loved being all toasty and comfortable in the soft light of the great room while watching a storm roll in over the mountains. I would suggest bringing a pair of binoculars to enjoy the abundant local wildlife. I highly recommend this experience and peaceful setting as a way to get away and recharge.
Heartfelt thanks for your lovely review! So glad you had the opportunity to watch that storm roll in over the mountains from the beauty and comfort of the lower level great room! How remarkable!
