About the Ranch

The Green Valley Ranch Legacy

In a 2005 Big Sky Journal article, the author describes the setting of Green Valley Ranch best: “After a short drive off Montana Highway 2, the winding access road opens onto the homestead, where a caretaker’s cabin, guesthouse and main lodge encircle a small pond. In this sheltered meadow, it’s easy to see why the Green family settled here in the early 1900’s. The valley lies in the curve of the Flathead Range with Desert Mountain standing sentinel at 6,000 feet, cradling the collection of buildings protectively. From the hilltop above the lodge a person could look southwest and see right into Glacier National Park.”

Green Valley Ranch was originally homesteaded by the George Green family when Glacier Park was newly created. The land was sold in 1947 and operated for fifty years as a dude ranch known as Desert Mountain Lodge. In 1999, the ranch was purchased and restored by the current owners – grandchildren of the original homesteading family.

Today, five generations of the Green family ride and ski the logging trails, thin and replant the forest, and are securing the abundance and beauty of the area for future generations. Green Valley Ranch is their family’s treasure and legacy they now share with a select few.

The Experience

Conveniently situated near the west entrance to Glacier National Park and its natural attractions, Green Valley Ranch is a true Montana vacation destination. Surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness yet conveniently accessible, this historic Montana Vacation Rental Homestead is perfectly suited for large or small family reunions, corporate retreats and exclusive Montana wedding events.

Green Valley Ranch is nestled at the base of Desert Mountain and offers stunning views into Glacier National Park, the Whitefish Mountain Range and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area at the head of the Hungry Horse Reservoir. Miles of linked trails run across ridges and meadows offering unlimited opportunities to explore this private ranch on cross country skis, snowshoes, mountain bikes, horseback and on foot.


The Accommodations

Complementing the spectacular terrain, the buildings at Green Valley Ranch were designed in the Glacier Park rustic log tradition with a 6,000 square foot main lodge and a smaller family cabin, with the ability to accommodate up to 27 guests. The Lodge and Cabin are the heart of a complex that includes miles of open trails, an antique log barn, an open-air pole barn suitable for entertaining, a pond, a small lake, and a grass game court.
