Berry Creek Ranch is a real ranch and there is - beside the big ranchhouse - a shop, a barn and 2 old buildings from the homesteading times, 200 hundred years ago on the property.
The 2 old buildings are not in usable condition (yet :-) ). A little creek runs thru the 302 acres big property, dried up after August tho.
From the front porch you have breathtaking views of the Beartooth and the Crazy Mountains and there is an endless 10,000 acres of hills, pines and pasture (Land Block Management) surrounding it.
The neighbour ranches raise cattle and at times we have our own livestock on the property as well.
You might bring your dog under certain circumstances that need to be talked about.

2 bedrooms (with 1 queen in each),

We own a guest ranch near Pryor, MT and if there would be interest we can come over and have you horseback to explore the country.
We also offer stage coach rides and bonfire cooking with dutch ovens by a living historian who can tell you endless stories about the time of the first settlers, how to make traps and show you survival skills.
Ask for prices.

We are still working on improving the road into the ranch. When it rains, you need a 4 wheel drive to get in and out of the place!
Everything was great. The location is beautiful, the cabin is convenient and the owner was great to work with. We plan to go back again.
We had a great time staying at Berry Creek Ranch! We had a wedding to attend farther east in Montana and Columbus was a perfect location for us. We had 9 of us stay and loved how much room there was. Everyone had their own bed. We played card games, board games, puzzles and the kids watched "The Pink Panther" from the dvd library at the ranch. Heidi was very helpful with our pre-planning, very quick responses to my many emails. Thank you Heidi for letting us stay at your place!
We enjoyed our stay at the Berry Creek Ranch, we are planning on returning. Great people, great views, great home!
My family of 5 stayed for a week and we all loved the house and property! The land is beautiful and secluded and located close to all the fun day-trip activities that we had planned in Yellowstone and Wyoming. The kids really enjoyed seeing wildlife coming in and out of the property. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. Would visit again!
