Your Montana Basecamp

Let Hardscrabble Ranch be the basecamp for your next Montana getaway! Situated in an idyllic spot just 30 minutes outside of Bozeman, you’ll be isolated and removed from the hustle and bustle of the city and in a more quiet and serene setting. The first thing you’ll notice is the jaw-dropping beauty of the area. Set at the base of the Bridger Mountains and right along Brackett Creek, the alluring mountain vistas combined with the calming sound of the creek flow will put your mind at ease. The ranch is ideal for families and large groups who appreciate spending time together among the mountains. Guests stay in dorms during the colder winter months, while the summer provides a chance to stay in a tent or yurt. Tents and yurts provide high-quality bedding, tables, and small decks to take in the scenery. This is a great way to experience the natural splendor of Montana on a more visceral level. Once you are settled in, spend time however you please! The terrain lends itself wonderfully to hiking excursions where you can find a creek to call yours for an afternoon fishing. During winter, outdoor enthusiasts have a heap of opportunities. Bridger Bowl’s legendary skiing is just a 10-minute drive away, as well as Fairy Lake access trails for snowmobilers. And if you prefer to stay, you’ll be surrounded by snowshoeing and back-country skiing opportunities galore. Onsite, you’ll have access to both a large kitchen in the Brackett Lodge and a hefty outdoor propane grill where you can prepare a meal for the entire group. Plan your trip to Montana where Hardscrabble Ranch will become your home-away-from-home!
