"Bonanza Creek Country - A Montana Dude Ranch Vacation You’ll Remember Forever!"

Welcome to Bonanza Creek Country Guest Ranch, where, since the 1870s, Montana ranch hands have roamed the range and worked cattle along the banks of Bonanza Creek. More than a century later, little has changed…the only difference is that now we have set a place at the table for you.

Here, personal attention is the norm, with only 8-12 guests invited per week. The demand to conform to strict routine simply floats away on the Montana breeze.

Hospitality and friendly atmosphere, responsive horses, challenging cattle work, tasty home cooking, comfortable cabins and loads of fun are just a few of the reason’s guests come back year after year.

Our horses are ranch horses and are chosen for you by your level of ability. We have the tried and true, and faster cow horses for the more advanced. Each one a solid partner. Many a guest has tried to take their horse home with them when they leave.

There are new riding opportunities every day, with a wide variety of terrain and landscapes to experience. What better way to see Montana’s beautiful Big Sky Country than from horseback? You will participate in real cattle work and have a chance to try the sport of team penning. Best of all – – no head-to-tail riding! It is a true adventure for your riding holiday.

If you would like to spend some time out of the saddle, we have options including fishing, hiking, massages, a ghost town, and the much sought-after peace and quiet.

For anyone wanting to enhance their lives, check out our Cowgirl Retreats.

Come relax with us where unbelievable views and unrivaled adventure abound. We treat you like family – real people on a real cattle ranch.

Family Owned & Operated


On this family operated ranch, we run 1,500 head of cattle on 25,000 acres – and that means lots of places to ride and cattle to move. The ranch was originally homestead in 1877 by Norwegian immigrants looking for a better life. Today the Voldseth family, which are the fourth and fifth generations living on this land, own and work the ranch. It will not take you long to see that they chose this area not only for its good water and grasses to graze cattle and sheep, but also for its beautiful scenery. The Voldseth Ranch lies partly in the legendary Crazy Mountains and partly in the beautiful Castle Mountains.Today the Voldseth Ranch consists of three ranches: the original TG Ranch, the Loweth Ranch, and the Bonanza ranch.

In 1993, June thought it would be good fun to add a guest ranch. With the help of David and their children, Sonia, Vance and Laura, it became an adventure they have thoroughly enjoyed.

David & June Voldseth and Vance & Kim Voldseth are the present owners of different parts of the Voldseth Ranch.

Vance and Kim live on the TG Ranch and are parents to three sons – Gavin, Tristan, and Brooks. What fun those three boys are, and we love having them so close.

Sonia lives near Queenstown, New Zealand with her husband Grant, and they are parents to two wonderful girls, Skylar and Ruby. Sonia is currently a life coach in Queenstown.

Laura is also married to a New Zealander, Chris, and they own one of the most beautiful farms in the world where they raise 5000 sheep. They have two sons, Oliver and Elliot, and a beautiful little girl, Eva June.


We are blessed with a wonderful family.
