Good Ol' Montana. Miles of undeveloped land filled with beauty and grace and...ranches.

When people think of Montana, there are two common factors that come into play. Mountains and farmers. We are considered an agricultural state, which makes sense right? We have a little over 1 million people living here, yet we are the 4th largest state in the United States.

USA Today came out with a list of the 10 Best Dude Ranches in the United States, and yes, Montana made the list.

Let's start with a question that some may have. What exactly is a "dude ranch".

 Dude Ranch: a vacation resort offering activities (such as horseback riding) typical of western ranches- Webster Dictionary

I feel like we have a ton of dude ranches throughout Montana, but there is one that made the list for 2023, and I think it's pretty accurate!

Flathead Lake Lodge, in Big Fork, MT is ranked 6th for 2023's Best Dude Ranches in the United States.


There are so many different things to do while you are at Flathead Lake Lodge. With being a lakefront location, the opportunities are endless. Swimming, canoeing, paddle boarding, fishing, horseback riding, the list goes on and on.

You can follow Flathead Lake Lodge on their SOCIALS. Give them a "like", you never know when you will want to plan your next little getaway. What I do know, is that you will not be disappointed with Flathead Lake Lodge. Congratulations Flathead Lake Lodge!
