320 Guest Ranch
Most guest ranches have minimum stays of three, four, or seven nights and permit only guests to participate in ranch activities like fishing, horseback riding, and meals. Not so at 320 Guest Ranch, in the Gallatin Canyon outside Yellowstone’s West Entrance. From 1936 to 1959 the home of Dr. Caroline McGill, Montana’s first female doctor, the ranch now welcomes guests and non-guests for guided horseback rides, fishing in its trout pond, or enjoying a traditional chuckwagon dinner. Of course, you can spend a night—and even opt for Dr. McGill’s former log cabin—if you want.
