The Lonesome Spur Ranch is a Montana Guest ranch, where you are invited to fulfill your dream of a true Western adventure!

Ask Nicholas Evans, author of “The Horse Whisperer”. Mr. Evans stayed with Lonnie while doing research for his best seller novel. The Lonesome Spur was also the model for Tom Booker’s grandparents’ homestead looking over the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River. “From its crest you could see the river curving around like a castle moat and in the distance the snowy peaks of the Pryor and Beartooth Mountains”.


A week’s standard ranch package at the ranch during June, July, August and September is $1800 per person or $1500 per child (10-16 years only) for a six night stay…arriving on Sunday and departing on Saturday. Overnight camp trip included in Standard Package. We require a 50% deposit at the time of confirmation. No refund will be given if cancellation is within one month of vacation time. We do accept credit or debit card payment as well as bank wire transfers, final balance payments are paid either one month before arrival by credit/debit or bank wire transfer or by cash on arrival at the ranch. Gratuity is added to your bill at 10% of your final balance.

The Lonesome Spur Ranch is a fifth generation ranch lying in the Clarks Fork Valley, between the Pryor Mountains and the Beartooth Mountains.

We invite you to join us at our guest ranch. We do expect you to lend a hand and ride for the brand. The type of activities we do is dictated by the seasons. We invite you to catch and saddle your horse, we can lend a hand to help you do this of course, and then ride the range with us while you are here, daily rides are between 4 to 6 hours.

Our guests are invited to come to the ranch between May and October.
