Guest Ranch - Facilities and AccommodationsSeveral buildings comprise Artemis Acres: our house, the lodge, the shop and stalls, the barn and tack room, and our house.
The lodge is the guest quarters. It houses a kitchen and central dining room, and covered deck for outdoor dining. The three guest rooms each have private bath, a kitchenette with wet bar and ‘frig, and coffee service (no meal cooking). Each room has a separate entrance off a deck. Rooms are furnished in traditional western log furniture, with clean laminate flooring and western art.
The “Mule deer” and “Whitetail” units each have either a king size or two twin-extra-long beds.
The “Elk” unit is a bit larger than the other two guest rooms. It also has either a king size or two twin-extra-long beds, and also a day/trundle bed for families travelling with one or two young children.
From any of these rooms, you can have coffee on the deck outside your room in the morning and watch the mares and foals in the pasture. In the evening, you can relax with a glass of wine and observe white-tailed deer frolicking in the same fields.
The Shop and Stalls consist of the maintenance area for the myriad of ongoing ranch projects; and two horse stalls for horses in need of special attention. (Montana ranch horses enjoy living outdoors year-round.)
The Barn and Tack Room serve as the launching point for our trail rides. Hitch racks line the horse corrals, a “mounting step” is at one end of the barn, and an area is provided for watching the activities associated with getting the horses ready to ride. Saddles, bridles, and helmets are organized in a secure area along with the grain.
