Welcome to the O’Hair Ranch Lodge

Luxury Accommodations on the Banks of the Yellowstone River

The O’Hair Ranch Lodge is privately situated on the O’Hair’s 15,000-acre working cattle ranch in Paradise Valley, just ten miles south of Livingston, Montana.

Armstrong Spring Creek on the O'Hair Ranch, Paradise Valley, Montana

Just steps from the lodge, guests are afforded private access to over three miles of the Yellowstone River, and you are just minutes away from the world-renowned Armstrong Spring Creek on the O’Hair Ranch.

The Lodge is perfect for any family vacation or special event, comfortably accommodating up to sixteen guests in four master bedrooms and the kid-friendly bunk room.

The sprawling back porch offers up picturesque views of the Absaroka Mountain Range to the East and of the Paradise Valley to the North and South.

Evening with friends

After a long day testing your luck with the wild trout, or exploring the wild areas surrounding the property, come inside to enjoy the crackle of the wood-burning fireplace in the great room, or relax with friends and family under the stars on one of our decks. Either way, let the O’Hair Ranch Lodge be the perfect ending to the perfect day in Big Sky Country.

The Lodge is equipped with all the cookware and tools needed for preparing a meal either indoors, or on the porch with the provided grill. The dining room is fitted with a table large enough to accommodate the entire group, plus picnic tables just out the backdoor.

The Main Room at O'Hair Ranch Lodge

With floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room, it is hard to miss the first soft light of morning peeking over the Absaroka Range or dramatic sunsets in the evening.

The O’Hair Ranch Lodge perfectly balances necessary amenities with access to premier outdoor recreation opportunities for the quintessential Montana lodging experience.

The O’Hair Family opened the Lodge in the Spring of 2014 and has made a firm commitment to enhancing the visitor experience, making improvements and upgrades to the structure and surrounding grounds.

The Ranch

In 1876, O.T. Armstrong left his farm in Missouri to homestead a 350 acre cattle ranch in Montana’s Paradise Valley. Nearly 140 years and six generations later, the ranch is still owned and managed by the same family. Though the property and ranch operations have grown and improved over the years, our way of life remains much the same as it did so many years ago. In addition to the breathtaking scenery and diverse wildlife, it's common to see a cowboy on horseback tending to cattle the traditional way.

Paradise Valley and the surrounding areas of Southwest Montana boast a multitude of activities for the entire family. The Paradise Valley alone is home to several world-class fisheries. We also operate Armstrong Spring Creek that runs through the ranch.

Come fall, Justin O'Hair's Chimney Rock Outfitters provides top-quality private land hunting on our ranch.

There are opportunities for hiking and viewing wildlife in the nearby Gallatin National Forest, the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, and Yellowstone National Park. Within Paradise Valley there are a number of outfitters that are ready to take you and your party on any number of rock climbing, horseback riding, or whitewater rafting adventures.

In season, the Paradise Valley can provide the opportunity to pursue the quarry of your choosing, from trophy big game to waterfowl and upland game bird species.

Skiing in Montana

The fun does not have to stop when winter sets in and the snow begins to pile up. The O’Hair Ranch Lodge is within driving distance to several downhill and nordic ski areas, such as Bridger Bowl and the Bohart Ranch. Yellowstone National Park provides other winter recreation opportunities such as snowmobiling, snowcoach tours, and winter wildlife viewing.

The area’s activities are certainly not limited to the outdoor pursuits. Just ten miles north through the Valley you will find historical Livingston, home to a wide variety of museums, art galleries, craft breweries, and the weekly Summer Farmer’s Market. Back to the south of the Lodge, guests can enjoy the quaint communities of Emigrant and Chico Hot Springs.
