Explore the outdoors where man has roamed our meadows for at least 7000 years. Tom Hawley homesteaded the ranch which was purchased in 1917 by the Jarrett family to be used as grazing land for cattle and sheep. The idea of a Montana dude ranch was realized by Bill Jarrett in the 1970’s. His concept of this guest ranch continues today, owned and operated by his brother, Ron Jarrett, and partner Bryant Blewett.
See the great outdoors in an unspoiled environment from the back of your horse. Guests such as JoAnn and David from AL shared “This was a wonderful place to relax, ride, and enjoy the most beautiful place. As our grandson, Lewis, said, “The staff, wranglers, owners were awesome”– this was the greatest place to bring him for our special trip together.” Qualified wranglers, good horses, and unique mountain trails in the wilderness excite horseback riders of all ages and abilities. A horse is selected to match your horseback riding skills. That horse is then yours for a week! Beginning horseback riding instruction is provided. You can ride in small groups because of the number of wranglers we have and small guest capacity.
Fly fish the Boulder River where our ranch has private river frontage kept as “catch and release” for over 30 years. We provide a “guilt free” family vacation, where some family members flyfish, while the rest experience other ranch activities. Susan from PA reported that her “Dad is telling everyone it was the best fishing of his life. He even used one of the flies his father (who died when dad was in college) tied that he had been saving for “sometime special.” It was, as always, a magical week.”
Other activities, such as hiking to scenic areas, our 4x4 trip to a ghost town and gold mines, a scenic boat float down the Yellowstone River, and evening cookouts and campfires round out a full week of wilderness experiences at our Montana dude ranch on Hawley Mountain.
