Helene's house is amazing. So comfortable, spacious with everything you could ask for and more. Wish we could have stayed longer.

My daughters and I loved this ranch. The vibe was great, pastoral and bucolic. We loved the animals (goats, Shetland ponies (both more like pets) and cattle). We hiked into the mountains from the ranch - and then spent a day in Glacier National Park. It was also nice to be away from town. To top it off, Helene was superb. Warm, easy to communicate with, and very conscientious. We'll be back.

This home was amazing! A beautiful home fully equipped with towels, kitchenware, games, and comfortable beds. Fantastic scenery and friendly cows. The host was very friendly and helpful -- she gave us great tips for food and hiking in the area. Host lives nearby in a separate house and was super willing to pop over to give advice. I would definitely stay here again.

You will love Cougar Ranch. It is beautiful and a great place to hang your hat while you explore the MIssoula area. Helene is a wonderfully helpful and friendly host.

Clean and comfortable, however I would hesitate to recommend this space for other families. There were several rules and guidelines, almost to the point that everyone in our party had a little difficulty settling in. Helen was extremely prompt in communicating and very kind. The house is well taken care of.

Response from Helene:
This is the first time that parents object to the very simple guidelines we explain when guests arrive with young children to make sure they are safe in a ranch environment. For example making sure that youngsters don't stray into pastures where there are horses or cows, or into barns where farm equipment is parked. Dozens of children have left with great memories of feeding carrots to the ponies and petting goats.

Great house, with a fantastic view! We really enjoyed the serene setting and comfortable accommodations. The hot tub on the back porch was a hit with the whole group. There was plenty of space for the entire group to spread out comfortably. An easy 20 minute drive from Missoula makes this a great jumping off point for all sorts of adventures.

This is a truly amazing place. Very large house with more than enough space and incredible design. We lived like royalty amidst the MT mountains. So cool to have contact with the family dogs and ponies. Helene, the host, was incredibly friendly and hospitable.

When I retired from a career in journalism that took me all over the world, I thought it was time to come back to my first love -- the ranch I had bought in Montana many years ago. I like to share the beauty of the mountains which are around Cougar Ranch: the Mission peaks, the Rattlesnake wilderness, the streams and the lakes. And it's fun to share some gourmet recipes after a hike or a day of paddling down a river.
