russellExperience Montana heritage and the ranching way of life up close and personal in a relaxing and low key atmosphere. Three generations of the Russell Family live and work where great grandpa Herb homesteaded in the Upper Stillwater River Valley in 1919. Today their cattle run on 5000 acres of owned and leased land ranging from the home place to the grazing permit in the Custer National Forest.

The Russell family starts with Herb and Susan who are going strong in late years. Herb was actually born on the original ranch homestead. They both still take part in the daily ranch routines and overall caring for the kids, crew, and animals. David, Kelly, and son Travis now manage more of the day to day operations, and they will be your hosts for an unforgettable ranch vacation.

Adventures include open-range riding, working cattle, and all the other activities typical of an authentic working cattle ranch steeped in history in the last best place. You will enjoy a fun-filled environment with laughter, majestic mountain views, cool clear streams, and a wholesome ranch atmosphere.


Other Popular Activities Include


The bunkhouse is nestled along the creek a short distance from the ranch house. It is cozy and comfortable with queen bed and private bath. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living area. (Personalized experience—they only host one group of guests at a time.)
