Property Information

Hardscrabble Ranch is in an idyllic setting only thirty minutes away from either Bozeman or Livingston while still isolated from the bustle of human activity.  At the base of the Bridger Mountains on Brackett Creek, you can enjoy stunning views of Ross Peak and close access to Bridger Bowl.

We’re your home away from home while you spend your time exploring and having fun in the beautiful Bozeman, Montana area. Whether you are planning to wed in this beautiful area, or your group decides to spend their time fishing and hiking or resting and enjoying the local culture of the nearby towns, you’re guaranteed to have a good time!

During the summer you can enjoy our newly introduced glamping tents next to Brackett Creek or with views of Ross Peak. The tents have king or twin beds and a camping cot can be available upon request. Our bedding is high-quality with warm blankets (just in case), tables, chairs, and small decks to take in the sights. This glamping is a great way to experience the late sunsets of a Montana summer.  Internet WiFi is possible from the main house for email or texting.  Cell phones don’t work in the area at all. If you are looking to make this a working vacation, you may be frustrated.  

In addition to the tents Hardscrabble Ranch has an outdoor Kitchen area with cooking and BBQ Equipment, as well as an outdoor fire pit.
