reflection-pool-dude-ranch We love hearing what people have to say about their stay with us - Thank you for our 5/5 star rating! Here's what some people on TripAdvisor have said...
"Just booked Year can't stay away once you've been there." "My friends and I are all advanced riders who own their own horses, so when selecting a ranch, most important to us are quality of horses, quality of the rides, time spent in the saddle and adult only week. Good food and lodging are a bonus for us... Black MT ranch delivers on all levels. Amazing, (responsive horses) (the best of any ranch we have been to so far), rides, food, cabins and staff." "If your looking for the ultimate Cowboy experience, this is the place to go. Super horses, amazing food, unbelievable staff, clean and comfortable accommodation, I honestly cannot recommend this place highly enough." "Fabulous horses, warm and friendly owners/staff, and beautiful countryside, plus a whitewater rafting trip - what more could one ask?" "Just got back from our adults-only week at BMR. It's almost impossible to add to the superlatives found in the other reviews. All I can say is that everything the others have said is true! Beautiful country, great cabins, fantastic food, and the best wranglers and staff around. If you love the outdoors, this is a place not to miss!!!!" "The ranch is in a beautiful, remote spot with spectacular views for many miles. Cabins are comfortable and there is a central dining room for consistently delicious food and a saloon bar where we spent hilarious evenings with the other guests. The horses were individually selected to match ability/confidence and, by the end of the week, we had all fallen in love with our four legged friends (even the reluctant husband)." "Can honestly say it was our best family holiday to date." "I have vacationed all over the world and BMR is BY FAR the BEST RUN PROPERTY I have ever been to. From the moment you step onto the ranch to the moment you leave, you are made to feel like part of the ranch family." "We have been to BMR multiple times - including once with 5 grandchildren and once during an adults only week. No matter - all weeks have been a full and outstanding experience. Horses, wranglers, owners, food, cabins, waiters, pool, shooting, fishing, the saloon, the cattle drive, roping, branding and nice people who are also visiting."
