If you want to visit our Montana dude ranch once the summer crowds thin, check out our four fall specialty weeks.  These weeks, outside of peak season, offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in a particular activity, or simply relax and unwind. We have 4 specialty weeks this fall (our photography week is in June – check it out for next year!) and there is something for everyone. From a women’s-only week to fly fishing to photography, we have something for you. Come experience the beauty of Montana and Yellowstone when the aspens are turning yellow and the air is cooling down!

1. Dare to Detour: Women’s Specialty Week montana dude ranch

Everyday life moves fast. Dare to Detour, a four-day women’s retreat at our Montana dude ranch, will help you slow down and take time for yourself. Detour from your daily life and allow yourself to be transformed by the wilderness and beauty of the great outdoors.

2. Adults Only Week

3. Fly Fishing Week

Visit Nine Quarter Circle Ranch during Montana’s prime dry fly season and perfect your angling skills! Our fly fishing week includes a combination of casting on big rivers and small streams, and we offer backcountry excursions. In the evenings, attend classes and demonstrations on fly-tying and learn about the fish and ecology of the area. 


4. Cowgirl Quilt Week

Our Montana Cowgirl Quilt Week has now been running for more than 20 years. From August 26th to September 2nd, visit the Ranch for a unique week of quilting. Join quilting artists from around the world, enjoy classes throughout the week, and even visit Bozeman for a “quilt crawl.” After classes and workshops in the mornings, enjoy the afternoons to ride horses, hike, or simply relax at the Ranch.
