For some people, traveling to a place like Montana can be a little outside the comfort zone. The common misconception is that our state has few modern amenities, such as electricity and running water, or that out-of-state guests may be forced to “rough it” while they are here. We’d like to put these rumors to rest once and for all. While Montana is a place of rugged beauty and plentiful wilderness, Headwaters Ranch is a luxury destination resort that provides all the comforts of home plus all the luxury you’ve been dreaming of.
Headwaters Ranch is 500 acres of beauty located near the Headwaters of the Missouri, Jefferson, and Gallatin Rivers. The land itself has a lot to offer –– three acres of wildflowers, five colonies of honeybees, beautiful horses, numerous ponds and creeks to wander along, hiking areas, and plenty of room to relax and enjoy southwest Montana’s endless beauty.
The Round Barn
The Round Barn is the main attraction. This spectacular 5,000+ sq. ft. the venue is constructed from hand-milled, rough-sawn lumber and gorgeous reclaimed beams. It features a beautiful mezzanine inside, a covered veranda outside and a 3,000 square-foot patio with a built-in fire pit. Views of mountains and wildflowers in the background help to make this structure truly stunning. The windowed vaulted ceiling of this 350-capacity building lets in the warm glow of the beautiful Montana sunrises and sunsets that cast a dreamy hue over the ceremonies inside.
The Clubhouse acts both as a second venue for smaller events (50 and smaller) as well as a lodge for those staying onsite with us. The Hops & Honey Bar nestled inside the Clubhouse offers a tapas-style menu as well as a full bar (coming August 2018). This building also contains a beautiful bridal salon featuring a beauty bar, a private bar, and access to the back veranda, which provides tons of space for pictures and mingling before and after the ceremony. Finally, the Clubhouse features a spacious living room, multiple decks, fire pits and BBQs, and plenty of space for everyone to relax.
The Ranch has comfortable lodging for 100 people. Our ten cabins can sleep up to six people each. Brand new, they offer luxurious accommodation — each cabin includes a mini kitchen and private bathrooms. We also have eight glamping tents which offer comparable comfort but in a more rustic setting. The clubhouse has shower houses, wifi, and a kitchen, offering all the comforts of home just a few steps away. In addition, we offer five vintage campers which have been newly remodeled, offering a fun and unique space for guests to stay.
Activities… Lots of Activities!
We encourage our couples to book the ranch for a few extra days to allow their guests time to enjoy some authentic Montana experiences, such as sunset horse trail rides and guided fishing trips. With plenty of space to explore, lawn games, and multiple fire pits, the opportunities for fun at Headwaters Ranch are as endless as the big skies of our state.
And don’t forget that overall, the Ranch is a place where we want people to come together to enjoy the beauty of the landscape with each other, make memories that last a lifetime, and most of all have a great time exploring all that this wonderful part of Montana has to offer. We look forward to meeting you!
