Roam. Relax. Recharge.

Whether you’re searching for adventure or simply need a little peace and quiet, the Hughes Mountain Ranch is a perfect fit. The Little Belt Mountains of Judith Basin County bear witness to over 100 years of ranching by the Hughes family, and we strive to preserve the flavor, landscapes, and lore of the West while sharing it through environmentally conscious vacations. 

Enjoy mountain biking, fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing in the summer and big game hunting in the fall. At Hughes Mountain Ranch, your central Montana adventure awaits.



"The Hughes Mountain Ranch is truly indescribable. It's a feeling. It's a deep (re)connection with nature. A feeling of completeness, peace, and serenity. An appreciation and gratefulness for the hard work & tradition of ranching. It's what keeps us coming back and we'll continue to do so for as long as we can. It has completely captured our hearts and will always be our special place. We cannot thank the Hughes' enough for sharing their little piece of heaven with us!"

"We had an amazing time at your lodge! Montana is lovely, and we enjoyed our beautiful views from the dining room window seat as we all the living room. I (Amy) especially appreciated the quiet for reading. Tim had a wonderful time being out in nature and doing some trout fishing. We hope to be able to come again soon to enjoy your well-appointed ranch house. The attention to detail was wonderful and we are thankful."

"What an amazing experience we had here at Hughes Mountain Ranch. From the beautiful star filled skies at night to the new fallen snow in the morning, our adventure couldn't have been better. Thanks to the Hughes family, three generations, for sharing their home, this charming lodge and their hardworking way of life. We all thank you so much."
