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.

I don’t really know how to describe the beauty of this place and the fabulous people who work there! The sounds of nature surround the ranch and you can see forever just stunning! It only has 7 rooms which makes it so intimate ...the staff is small and they are always available to help with anything ,arrange fishing,hikes etc. we love hiking and they were knowledgeable with what was available due to weather conditions. Chef Chris is amazing he accommodated my dietary needs, very flexible and the food is fabulous! They will pack you a lunch if you are going to be gone all day. They have snacks out all day and water always available . Great wine list and beer selection. Jill and McKenzie are very attentive servers so sweet. Chris the manager is amazing rook us up to the top of the mountain in his Jeep to witness the incredible views on the ranch! It really is a special place . About a 40 min drive from Bozeman which is a great town with lovely restaurants and shops. We stayed one night at the Kimpton Armory which was fabulous !

Even given your fondest dreams, you will not believe what awaits you at Grey Cliffs Ranch. From your first contact with Chris, the manager, to when you wave "goodbye" to first-class lodging and gloriously relaxing scenery, you'll be hooked.

Inside the immaculately kept residence (thank you, Mary!), furnished with comfortable and tasteful surroundings, you'll feel like this is truly your Montana home away from home. Peace reigns along side the elk, coyotes, and eagles. Not a rapper on a boom box for miles!

The GCR staff is without peer. Rory, the superb and jovial chef, prepares cuisine to die for. Carefully selecting his meats, fruits, and vegetables, he performs gustatorial magic before your very eyes! Tracy, a seasoned guide who knows trout and how to catch them, can show you where to see the abundant wildlife and wide-open landscapes bathed in fresh air and sunshine.

At first blush, the total cost appears on the higher end of most budgets, but when you factor in the fabulous meals, professional service and attention, elegant accommodations and the blissful isolation from traffic and hassles, it's the deal of a lifetime.

No doubt in our minds, Grey Cliffs Ranch ranks at the top of the list for the best staff, accommodations, and deal within hundreds of miles of the Bozeman area.

We were inspired to visit Grey Cliff after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. From the first phone call with Chris, we knew we were in great hands. He and Licia make this a phenomenal guest experience.
Driving in, the ranch was more remote than we expected. But it's a gorgeous drive along the Madison River. And once you see the lodge, it's totally worth the drive.
We happened to be there during an unusual weather pattern with rain and clouds for a few days. We made the most of it by doing pottery with Licia in her studio, shooting clay pigeons with Chris, and generally hanging around the lodge to relax. When the sun came out on our final evening, we quickly ran out to take photos around the two lovely ponds.
We had a temporary chef during our stay, Rex, who cooked delicious meals and provided a lot of personality. The food, wine and service were excellent!
Last, the bed, bedding, bathroom products and towels are all of the highest quality. There are nice laundry facilities if needed and a hot tub to enjoy.
We really hope to return to this very special location, and we truly thank Chris, Licia and Rex for a wonderful stay.

Unforgettable vacation! We rented the entire ranch out for a bachelorette party weekend, and it couldn't have been any better. While I don't expect the staff was likely used to groups of 13 girls coming to visit for a bachelorette, the welcomed us warmly, and took amazing care of us. Chef Chris kept us extremely well fed, and the rest of the staff whipped up incredible Margaritas, and shuttled us to a wide variety of activities including tubing on the local river, skeetshooting, flyfishing, and even hosted a pottery class.

The house itself is gorgeous, so many bedrooms I've lost count, with several porches, comfortable couches to enjoy the view from, and even has a small gym. The house is extremely remote, off of a paved route, so if it's the perfect place to truly getaway. We constantly saw deer, rabbits, and wildbirds, and relaxed in the evenings in the hot tub, having a drink on the beautiful wrap-around porch, or taking walks along the road to watch the sunset.

Great place for a family reunion, and for taking a break from city life. Would absolutely recommend staying here for the beautiful views, amazing staff, and top notch accommodations.

Ok,

My Dad chose this place to fish with my brothers. I had a bad experience getting there due to the airline situation with Covid and all, but as soon as I arrived, I was amazed at this place!

Firstly, the private chef Scott stayed late to give us an amazing dinner with fantastic locally grown goods from both his home garden and the Grey Cliffs garden. Now this talented chef should have his own private restaurant in Manhattan. He deserves a Michelin Star. But not only for the great taste and presentation. His personality and service was fantastic! He provided box lunches each day that were outstanding. However, I also have to say the service by Dairy (an interesting name) was also so enjoyable. The entire staff was outstanding.

The main men, Chris and Tracy were our outfitters and fishing guides. They were also outstanding, friendly and took care of all our needs. They taught us some of the local history of that Montana region and provided my father, brothers and I with basically a fantastic experience.

I would very highly recommend this lodge for anyone wanting to get away from the stress of life and have a great time for a few days.

GRC is a wonderful place to stay…close to the airport…but feels miles away from civilization!
The 8 or so guest rooms are unique but equally lovely and comfortable…and the surrounding property seems to never end. Great hiking/walks and mountain biking are right outside the door. Beautiful vistas and wildlife sightings are frequent from the verandas.
As a first time fly fisher, I didn’t know what to expect and had nothing to compare with…but doubt I could have had a better experience.
Kendra is a great guide and teacher…and watching her handle our boat in the current…wow!
A “must-do”is a fun float trip down the Madison. Our group did one every day and had a blast every time!
Chef Lisa’s banana coffee cake and Chef Chris’ barbecued bison short ribs were alone worth the trip!
Go and enjoy the wide open spaces at a 5 star
Spot!

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the GCR in the bunk house and had the best of both worlds. Completely private with a full kitchen and wonderful views of the property and just steps away from the lodge and wonderful hospitality, chef and bar. The lodge host MacKenzie went out of her way to accommodate our every need and Chef Chris was wonderful and created a variety of dishes beautifully presented. Five stars to both! Fishing was outstanding as was touring this incredible 6000 acre ranch. We highly recommend GCR for a peaceful getaway and only 40 minutes from Bozeman.

We stayed at the Grey Cliff ranch last week and it was incredible. Rooms were luxurious and the staff were super friendly and welcoming. We went to celebrate my birthday and our honeymoon and everyone was awesome. Chef Chris made delicious meals for us and equally delectable cocktails in the bar.

Some of the meals included pizza, cedar plank salmon with barley and miso broth, a tomahawk steak with shrimp cocktail, salad and a genoise cake for desert. Breakfast meals were awesome huevos rancheros with fruit and tortillas and another breakfast meal consisted of a delicious omelette with spinach cheese and peppers with bacon and sausage. I apologize for not getting photographs of all the meals because they were too irresistible to wait for a picture.

Chris Pfadt and Tracy Blashill took my wife and I clay pigeon shooting and provided excellent instruction which led to us hitting the targets. We also went out riding horses with Maureen and got to see Buffalo Jump by the Madison. The ranch is also within driving distance to Big Sky and we were even able to get some snowboarding in with Chase, Kendra and Maureen.

Everyone here is great and they truly make you feel like family. I definitely recommend Grey Cliff Ranch.

What a wonderful getaway! This gem is a treat if you’re looking for comfort and relaxation. With only a handful of gorgeously decorated suites, there’s plenty of room inside and out to chill, fish, or hike. Full professional guide services too! The entire staff makes you feel welcome and special, with a very casual ambiance. Food good, drinks plentiful, and beds comfy. A great venue for a private event. Enjoy!

Everyone was so friendly and helpful! We enjoyed the amazing meals Chef Chris prepared and visiting with the ranch staff before and after meals. They have binoculars and a telescope to watch the wildlife. My teenagers had a blast clay shooting and we went white water rafting another day. Thank you to everyone for an amazing vacation!
