Missouri River Ranch
Missouri River Ranch offers all the comfortable amenities that you’d expect to find at the premier lodge on the Missouri. New additions include spacious rooms that step out onto decks overlooking the river valley. The guest rooms have various bed configurations to best accommodate couples, fishing buddies, friends, and families. The common Great Room is a relaxing loft made for guests to unwind after a day of fishing and outdoor activities. The room—formerly a hayloft for the dairy ranch—provides guests a space for relaxing on the dining deck or an opportunity to chat with the chef about that evening’s gourmet meal. For guests looking to stay connected to the outside world, the great room offers both Wi-Fi and television with over 300 channels.
Food and Beverages
Each meal is prepared by an in-house chef using fresh, hearty ingredients. The menu focuses on elegantly-prepared traditional Montana meals, which leave you feeling beyond satiated! Breakfasts can be made-to-order while watching the sunrise over the Missouri River, or the chef can prepare a breakfast sandwich to-go so you can hit the road and begin that day’s adventure. For non-anglers preferring to stay at the Ranch during lunchtime, the chef is happy to prepare an appetizing meal. While on the river fishing, your guide will have a riverside lunch prepared with an assortment of drinks. Different entrees are offered every night, including filet mignon, Italian night, fried chicken, pork loin, fresh Alaskan salmon, Mexican night, or even Shrimp Fra Diavolo.
Non-Angling Activities and Options
Non-angling guests may choose from countless exciting activities during their visit. On the ranch property, hikers can explore two miles of trails, taking in the views along the Missouri River and viewing the local wildlife and birds that call the Ranch property home. Cooking classes with the Ranch chef can be arranged for either individuals or groups. Within a short driving distance of the Ranch are some great sights, tours, museums, trails, and parks that should be on every visitor’s list. Only 20 minutes from the Ranch is the Gates of the Mountains Tour, consisting of a 120-minute cruise through the scenic canyon walls of Holter Lake. The Montana Historical Society in Helena and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Great Falls is rich in history and a great way to learn about this historic region of Montana. Other non-angling activities include a visit to First Peoples Buffalo Jump, the Charles Russell Museum, and Glacier National Park, to name a few.
