Bar B Ranch

Emigrant, MT

Welcome to B Bar Ranch

Established in 1906, the B Bar Ranch is nestled into the pristine privacy of the Tom Miner Basin, just north of Yellowstone National Park. This 9,000-acre ranch is part of a unique and fragile ecosystem and is a place of exceptional natural beauty. The B Bar respects and maintains its splendor by managing the natural resource base for sustainability and diversity, striving to live in harmony and balance with its many native floral and faunal inhabitants.

Be Amazed by Yellowstone

The B Bar Ranch is 17 miles north of Gardiner, the only Park entrance that is open all year. Add-on nights are available at the B Bar if you would like to visit Yellowstone National Park and explore its stunning trail system (TIP: The nearby Petrified Forest is a must-hike!). We can provide itineraries and ideas for making the most of your time, before or after your retreat.

Why We Love It Here

The vast array of vegetation and topography provides a unique habitat for many forms of wildlife found in neighboring Yellowstone National Park. Elk, white-tail and mule deer, moose, grizzly and black bear, wolves, coyotes, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, bobcat, mountain lions, and numerous small mammals roam the ranch and freely traverse the six mile boundary with YNP. In addition, the riparian system provides spawning ground for native Yellowstone cutthroat trout, home for beavers, nesting areas for Sandhill cranes and summer habitat for other smaller waterfowl.

The Ranch offers accommodations in cozy-comfy A-frame cabins. Each of the cabin includes a private porch, living room, bedroom and bath on the main floor, and a loft bedroom upstairs. The cabins are a minute’s walk from the lodge and sit amongst an aspen grove, facing the pond with Sheep Mountain providing a stunning backdrop. Plus, you’re only a short stroll away from the open-air hot tub—a perfect spot for stargazing!

The lodge is the social center of the ranch with its large dining room and sunny southern-facing deck, professionally staffed kitchen, back porch yoga studio, gift shop, and large, inviting living room with a wood stove and log furniture of the Molesworth tradition handmade on the ranch a half-century ago. We also recommend enjoying your morning coffee and catching the sunrise from the lodge’s spacious grand view porch with views of Paradise Valley and of Emigrant Peak.
