Guest Capacity


Historic Guest Ranch

The Circle Bar Ranch is a historic guest ranch that dates back to the 1800s in central Montana. The 520-acre guest ranch sits at the base of the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest. Guests can explore the mountains by horseback, and enjoy fishing, hiking, shooting, archery, and other activities while staying in historic accommodations. Explore the surrounding area of the Judith River Headwaters and the Little Belt Mountains and ride where western artist Charlie Russell once rode. At 5000 feet in elevation, the Circle Bar enjoys the best of Montana’s weather with a host of activities to enjoy.

The Circle Bar Ranch offers a wide range of activities from archery and shooting to swimming and spelunking. Adventurous guests can explore the caves or visit nearby Sapphire Village to look for the gem itself. The ranch’s 520 acres and neighboring Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest offer plenty of landscape to explore, whether hiking on foot or by horseback. Horseback riding is what the ranch is known for: Lope across Montana pastures; ride sturdy horses up to the mountains, or stay in-ranch to learn how to sort cattle.

Gather in the Lodge dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Lunch will fuel you up for an afternoon of adventure. Before dinner, head up to the Lodge for cocktails and then dine on steak, pork chops, pastas, fresh trout and more—with a roaring fire in the wood-burning fireplace on chilly evenings.
