Big Timber Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 6 photos

Big Timber - not the first place you would think of when you think of Montana! However, it is someplace I have wanted to visit for a very long time. Some (very) distant relatives own a dude ranch outside of the town, in the Crazy Mountains. My grandparents visited the ranch years ago and I have wanted to ever since. I finally got to in July 2000.

The ranch is well away from everywhere but is still cozy and the little cabins looked comfortable. The family, The Van Cleves, raise quarter horses and you can be a cowboy for the day or just sit back and watch the grass grow. It was a really beautiful place and my only disappointment was that we could not stay more than an hour or so. I am definitely planning a return trip some day.

Be sure to check out their website - it has more beautiful photos!
