Description: 9T9 Ranch Bed & Breakfast offers: High in the Northern Rockies in southwest Montana flows the famous blue ribbon trout stream, the Madison River. Emanating from Yellowstone Park, it rushes through the magnificent Madison Valley to become part of the headwaters of the mighty Missouri. Midway in this valley near the old frontier town of Ennis, nestles the 9T9 Ranch. From the ranch house deck, overlooking the river's edge, experience a 50 mile view of the majestic Madison Mountain Range, snow capped most of the year. Hear the hushed song of the river and enjoy the peaceful solitude of the meadows where the deer and the antelope really do play. This is Big Sky Country at it's finest. The Gallatin, Big Hole, Ruby, and the Yellowstone blue ribbon rivers can also be fished from the 9T9. Comfortable accommodations, superb food, and western hospitality, the 9T9 Ranch invites you to enjoy a unique stay at their Bed and Breakfast, Montana style.
The ranch house provides spacious room accommodations furnished with family antiques with an eye toward rural ambiance and comfort. The guest level of the ranch house has its own living room providing privacy and an atmosphere of genuine rest and relaxation. 'Having just a few rooms allows us the ability to provide special attention to each guest,' says Judy. Breakfast is served as early or as late as you wish and feature Judy's own fresh baked pastries, granola and special fruit bowl and a different entree each day. Box lunches and dinners are available with prior reservation, at extra cost. Dinners feature steak, chicken or authentic Mexican dishes. Occasional outdoor chuck wagon barbecues are offered.
The 9T9 Ranch offers a wide range of activities. The four-minute walk to the river provides premier rainbow and brown trout fly-fishing, or take a float trip with a licensed and experienced guide. Visit nearby Virginia and Nevada Cities, sites of gold rush and vigilante fame. Play golf at Ennis, Soak in Norris Hot Springs, photograph, hike, bike or hunt the wonderful Gravelly Mountain Range where deer, antelope, elk, moose and grouse abound. Yellowstone Park is only 60 miles away as well as other points of scenic and geological interest. Horseback riding can be arranged or guests can help gather eggs or harvest the vegetable garden at the 9T9 Ranch. The old west and Montana hospitality will make your stay a very special experience.
