We were lucky enough to find this gorgeous property when searching for a “dog friendly” hotel near Yellowstone. Rainbow Ranch did not disappoint. The setting and ambiance is amazing while the location between Big Sky and West Yellowstone is perfect. The manager, Scott was more than hospitable. If we lived closer we would be back on a regular basis.

Lovely place with somewhat rustic, but comfortable, spacious rooms with small porches (some along the river). Real fireplaces don't draft well, no chocolate chip cookies this time around. Comfortable bed, mini fridge, robes, tub with jets, cable TV, Keurig. Free average breakfast. Located in the canyon, about 15-20 mins from the Big Sky ski lifts.

Skip the crab feast

We made reservations for the $60/person "All you can eat crab feast." The venue was a large tent outdoors. It was cold. It seemed to get progressively colder as the evening wore on. Friends we saw there said the same thing. The crab was OK. The shrimp was happy hour peel and eat shrimp. The baron of beef looked delicious but was tough and hard to cut. The young man who served our wine needs to be trained in presentation, allowing the guest to taste it, etc. No provision was made for cleaning your hands after the messy business of eating crab and shrimp with your hands. Our waitress was very nice and found a damp cloth for us. The $60 would have been better spent in the dining room.

Cozy and Warm Montana Charm

Absolutely fell in love with Montana thanks to this hotel. The charm of this place was just exactly what I wanted for our vacation to Big Sky. The room was very large and cabin like, with an amazing wood burning fireplace which we used every night. They had the coziest throw blanket that I loved using on the couch in front of the fire. Breakfast was included, which was an upgraded continental inclusive of bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes. One morning was slow and the chef cooked us made to order omelets! The hot tub with the fireplace was also very nice - especially since the staff will start a fire for you if you let them know you’re heading out there. We ate dinner one night in the restaurant, which was on the pricey side but very good. I would highly encourage you to stay here on a trip to Big Sky, it is only about 15-20 mins off mountain and is so cozy and charming!

Thank you Scott & Staff!

This was such an amazing stay! I live in Bozeman & had some girlfriends visit from out of town & decided to take them up to Rainbow. The staff accommodated us so well & made it unforgettable. Scott made sure the champagne I had ordered ahead of time was cold and waiting in the room upon arrival. They started & maintained a fire for us every single time we went in the hot tub. & they did not judge us for walking around the property in the robes they provided :). Ashley the bartender even came down to the hot tub to grab our drink order of four yummy Moscow mules. This was the highlight of our week together as friends. We decided that every time they visit me in Montana, from now on we have to stay at least one night at the Rainbow. Thank you so much RR, we will be back soon!
