2023 Bonanza Creek Rates and Dates 

2023 Cabin Getaways

Staying at one of our cabins is a great way to getaway in the mountains of Montana.

Our cabins are a combination of Montana simplicity and comfort.  Our western furnished cabins sit on the edge of our 25K acre working cattle ranch adjoining the Lewis and Clark National Forest.  Peace and quiet are part of your every day life.

In the summer, you can settle in for some time on your porch or enjoy horseback riding, fishing, hiking, or bring your own ATV to do some exploring.  In the fall you can enjoy hunting on the Lewis and Clark National Forest. Come prepared to enjoy nature and life in the “middle of nowhere”.

We are located just off HWY 89 outside of Martinsdale in the heart of the Castle Mountains with an amazing view of the Crazy Mountains. 

We invite you to email us at or call us at 1 406 572-3396 (summer phone) or 1 406 572-3366 (winter phone).

The rate for each cabin is different, so please check cabin options for the cost.

2023 Horseback Riding 

Every day is a new adventure on horseback – climb a high ridge, meander through the woods along Bonanza Creek, canter across open country, ride to an old homestead that the modern world hasn’t yet reached.  Soak up all the beauty and tradition of Montana from the best seat in the world.

We have many wonderful horses, and we will match you to the right horse for your riding ability.  They are mostly quarter horses with a few paints and draft horse crosses thrown in.  Many are former cattle ranch horses and are familiar with our terrain.

With country as big as this, there is an endless variety of rides we can take our guests on.  The rides chosen for each day will vary with the weather, time of year, and preferences and abilities of the guests.

This country has a wide variety of terrain –  large pastures, rocky and sage brushed filled hillsides, open country, steep climbs and descents, creek bottoms, hills and mountains – you’ll get to see it all.  The altitude of the rides will vary from 5200 feet to 8300 feet above sea level.

All riders must be able to safely and confidently ride at a canter/lope outside an arena in open country.  For those that are able, we are happy to pick it up a notch for a good gallop or two across the wide-open spaces.

All riders must be physically able to mount their horses.  While we have a mounting block at the stable, on the trail, stumps, rocks and high ground are your only assistance.

The weight limit for riding is 225 – 250# depending on your height, physical condition and riding ability.  Pregnant women cannot ride.  It is important for your enjoyment that you are physically fit.

2023 Cowgirl Retreats

Are you ready to let go of what no longer allows you to be free, to be you, and to discover the strengths within you?

There is no better place than the breathtaking mountains of Montana. You will be pampered with home cooked meals, massages, the fuzzy muzzle of a horse, and that much sought after peace and quiet.  You will gain strength and courage through the horses, your coaches, and riding in this beautiful, empowering country.  This is an opportunity to learn what in your life no longer serves you and nourish what does.  Grit and grace go hand in hand in transforming your dreams.
