We chose Skyline for our Yellowstone trip because of the reviews on Trip advisor. I was truly glad we did. The owners are so kind and welcoming, helping us to feel at home as soon as we arrived. We were on the third floor, and had time to enjoy sitting on the porch on that level to relax and revive.... More

My husband and I stayed at at skyline Guest Ranch on our start for our Yellowstone adventure. Liz was a wonderful hostess and gave us excellent advice on places to eat in Cook City and where to look for wild life as we entered the park. Fantastic stay.

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Skyline Guest Ranch, a short drive east of Cooke City Montana. The 3 story log cabin is spotless and comfortable, the bedrooms and bathrooms roomy. Our room had a high ceiling with large log beams. We had planned on a trail ride, but altitude sickness ended that idea. It was enjoyable talking with... More

We stayed here 2 nights as part of our week in Yellowstone,. It was much nicer lodging and a much better value than the park options. It was easy to drive to Lamar at dawn and look for wildlife and then come back to the lodge for a yummy 8 o'clock breakfast. The trail ride they offer was awesome and... More

We had a fabulous time at the SGR. The food was excellent, the lodge was comfortable, the horses were great (I rode Jimmy and Mabel), the fishing was outstanding, and the guides were friendly and knowledgable. It is a warm family experience staying at SGR, and the scenery was spectacular. Victor, Luke, kids and family, thanks for a memorable and... More

I spent five days with the Jackson's at Skyline Guest Ranch. The room was large and well keep. The breakfast was great. Liz has something different each morning and all of it is good. Great folks to work with. I have been there two years in a row for five days each time. Loved both trips.

I found this gem of a place in the Yellowstone Lonely Planet book. Booking online was very easy, and so was the check-in. Our room, on the ground floor, was spacious and the bed was comfy. Definitely a nice stay after four days of car camping. I would highly recommend everyone staying here to go horseback riding. My fiance and... More
