Montana Hospitality, Country Style
The Montana River Ranch Country Inn, a magnificent six-bedroom three level log lodge, located south of Bainville in eastern Montana, serves as the starting point for the vacation of a lifetime. With its eight miles of riverfront along the Missouri River, working ranch activities, hunting, wildlife observation and photography opportunities, and its proximity to the route the Lewis and Clark expedition traveled two hundred years ago, visitors can easily spend from three days to two weeks taking advantage of all the Montana River Ranch has to offer.
Favorite Drives: Montana's Quake Lake
Meandering past mountain lakes, spirited streams and the Madison River, Highway 287 may cause some of its passengers to reflect on the power of creation. The road, which travels through the heart of the Madison Valley and into a corner of Yellowstone National Park, features miles of mountains, trees, water and animals.
Christmas in Virginia City
Throughout the holiday season, a visit to Virginia City is like stumbling upon the set of Christmas western. Evergreen boughs adorn assay offices that once handled gold fresh from the hills, a one horse open sleigh sits in the window of the Wells Fargo building, swaths of juniper, rosehips, and yarrow hang from an old barbershop where they once hanged men.

Great Falls: then and now
Great Falls holds on to its agricultural and ranching traditions, while moving forward as cultural Montana destination.

We motored our boat to the starting position with a slight wind behind us.
The Somers water tower stood tall in the late afternoon sun, just above Somers bay on Flathead Lake. Suddenly we were surrounded by tall, white sails, like wings everywhere descending upon us. We realized quickly we were in the wrong place.
Livingston Saturday Night
On any given day on Main Street in Livingston, youíll find novelists, painters and movie stars cheek-by-jowl with working cowboys, ski bums, and rednecks. Nowhere else in the state is there such a comfortable balance between Old and New Montana. Itís no surprise, then that this windswept railroad town has a mix of things to do and see thatís every bit as diverse ó or eclectic, as the newcomers might say ó as its nearly 7,000 residents.
When you think of living on the water in Whitefish, you likely think of a home on Whitefish Lake, that long, narrow body of water that sits above the town.For one family, living on the water came in a different form - just a few miles downstream from Whitefish Lake, on the Whitefish River. On a small knob that juts into a bend in the river sits this two-stor...
