John Muir writes, 'Come to the woods, for here is rest.' Chief Joseph Ranch invites you to rest amidst the beauty of Montana's Bitterroot Valley. Spend your days walking along Fern Creek, fishing on the Bitterroot River, or horseback riding through the forest. Enjoy a beautiful sunset over the mountains and spend your nights relaxing in the comfort of your own private suite or log cabin.

Located along the Lewis and Clark Trail, Chief Joseph Ranch bears the name of the great Nez Perce chief who led his people on their tragic journey through this land. The ranch is the site of the historic lodge built by William Ford in 1914. With construction taking three years to complete, the log and stone structure was immediately compared to Yellowstone's Old Faithful Inn. Featured in publications such as Architectural Digest and American Log Homes, the Main Lodge stands as a remarkable piece of Montana's storied past.

Now open to the public, the Main Lodge has four luxury suites, each with a private bathroom. Guests staying in the lodge are served three ranch-style meals a day.

You may also choose to stay in one of two private log cabins. We have a four bedroom log home and a two-bedroom log home with a loft - both with full kitchens and modern amenities.
