Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in the Cargill-Earl Guest house. It was just as described on the Netflix show Amazing Vacation Rentals. I can't begin to adequately describe the view....let's just say it was breath-taking. We didn't have to do any additional paperwork to check-in which was a plus. We just needed staff to show us to the guest house. When we got there we were greeted by and introduced to several staff members including Catherine, Erik, Chelsey and Jo which really made us feel welcome. Everyone was so warm and friendly. There was wood for the fireplace and since we had a fire most of the time we were there we burnt it up and bought more which the staff delivered to us. The guest house is primarily powered by solar with a back-up generator so it may be slow to heat up but it will!!! The concrete floors are heated which was another plus. There is a coffee maker, some seasonings and dishes so don't forget to bring your own coffee and creamer. The only disappointment (for my daughter only) was that we didn't see a bear. LOL All in all it was a wonderful experience that I would do again. Thanks to the staff for making our visit so pleasant!!!

We stayed at the Ranch 2 weeks ago, rented 2 properties. Absolutely beautiful landscaping. Serene. Deer, cows, horses and fox seen every day. The houses were perfect size for our family. Some things to note for future travelers: I tried reaching the office during our stay regarding horsebackriding and guided hikes (5 times over 4 days), NEVER to receive a phone call/email back, the houses did not appear professionally cleaned (bacon and biscuits found in a cabinet drawer, bathrooms not very clean, ) and staying at Sophia's house, we were left 2 towels, 1 towel each for 5 days. I would have given the Ranch a better rating if we did not have those issues.

We were not aware of the mission of Erik's Ranch before signing up for the hike, and it came a pleasant surprise and experience to hike to Chimney Rock with Kathryn and our guide who sang in his native Navajo tongue, shared his life experience, and kept us headed in the right direction during our descent. We'll be back to stay at the ranch during our next trip to Montana.

This was the most amazing experience we have ever had! The house décor and views were fascinating. We wish we had styed longer! This was our first big trip post covid-19 and the fires of CA and ID. We weren't able to stargaze due to the smoke but we were still so happy to be out there in such a beautiful and remote place. We plan on coming back in a couple years. Maybe in the Spring time. We would highly recommend this house to couples. Please take a look at the pics posted. Also.. Shiloh checked us in and gave us a tour of the house as well as explained the family that owns the properties.

Let me start by saying I knew I wasn't going to be able to make it to the ranch until late at night. I messaged Garrett and he made sure to be there when I arrived. Now I was already getting in late (11pm) then I got lost and was tiered from a long day of traveling I was thousands of miles away from home in a state and part of the country I have never been in. It took me an extra hour to get here. During that time Garrett communicated with me, my 15 year old daughter and my husband who was at home. He told my daughter and me that he would go out looking for us if he had to and that we would 100% get to the ranch that night. That was such a huge comfort. This man was already going out of his way then was delayed an hour because I was lost and could have just said he was going hole and to find a place for the night but he made sure we got to the ranch and took the time to show us around and made sure we knew where everything was. Our room was small but I knew that before coming it was also priced very nicely. The bed was super comfortable. I almost never sleep well when I'm away from home but this bed was very nice. The whole place was spotless. Everyone that works here was super friendly and awesome. I would 10000% come back again. It is set back on a few dirt roads but easy enough to get to and from. You can take exit 316 (I did) off I 90 (from Bozeman) and it will take you right here. My GPS kept bringing me to the house next door but there is a small sign on the road that says Eriks ranch.

I cant recoomend anyone come here under any circumstances but especially in the winter. We stayed here for a week three of the days we were there we blocked in by 2 company vehicles that had gotten stuck on the driveway. The internet had gone out, and there was no service. Since the location is so isolated we were unable to contact anyone except by hiking at least a mile. They were completley unprepared to handle any type of inclement weather so even if your in a 4 wheel drive vehicle plan on being stuck. During our stay we I proposed to my now fiance. The staff was supposed to deliver champagne and flowers to our room which they botched as well. Not only was the stay a complete disaster, being stuck for 3 days not matter how beautiful the site is that way. The customer service afterwards was abysmal. Everything was a fight, they hid behind their "compendium" their no refund policy, and claimed it was an act of God they had no control over. Yes it snowed but they did not do anything about it and never even attempted to check on us knowing full well we had been trapped in their cabin for 3 days. Airbnb refunded us 200 dollars in service charges because the experience was so miserable but could not compel Erik's ranch to refund anything. Under no circumstances should you stay here in the winter and I dont think it's worth coming at all anytime. They will treat you like crap and have no customer service skills to speak of. This is a ranch in the middle of nowhere owned by people a thousand miles away in city who have no idea what it means to live in a rural isolated area.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay with family and friends at The Lodge at Erik’s Ranch. The views were amazing and the privacy unparalleled. The house is luxurious with a gourmet farm-style kitchen great for cooking and casual gathering. The formal dinning room was perfect for meals together. The two great rooms were ideal for relaxing. The entire house was maticulosly clean. Having a private bath and shower and in almost every room was a plus! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The horseback riding tour was a great way to enjoy the property and spend time with the knowledgeable staff. The pool with it’s tremendous size, beautiful wooden beams all under glass was a unique experience. The whole house couldn’t be more perfect for a family or group of up to 12. It’s so nice to know that jobs are provided here for young adults with autism. I will be returning!
