We've been told that a trip to Blue Sky is one of the most relaxing trips one has taken. We have strived to make Blue Sky a place to disconnect, breathe and do as little or as much as you want. From porch sitting while watching wildlife, to letting your cares slip away while in one of our jacuzzi tubs.
There are hundreds of hiking trails in the Beartooth Absaroka Wilderness. We have hiked & backpacked the area for many years & can help you plan your hikes, whether easy day hikes or more challenging. There are also trail maps & guide books in your cabin for your use while you are here.
View our resident wildlife up close & personal with our Swarovski spotting scopes & learn more about their range & habits with our wildlife expert Kevin.
Bring your own Mountain Bikes or gravel Bikes for riding on our many scenic gravel roads & mountain bikes trails in the area.
Planning a trip to Yellowstone either before, after or during your stay with us? We can help you plan your trip & guide you to where the animal activity is happening at the moment.

The Beartooth Highway and more! The Beartooth Highway is open Memorial Day to mid October only.  There is always a chance it will close due to snowfall anytime!!

You may just want to relax and escape the real world in your own private cabin…or you can take a quiet walk among the Aspen on our private 44 acres and breathe the fresh mountain air ……….But that’s not all…. There are many more activities here at “Blue Sky” and the surrounding area!!

We have our very own, private, pond, (over an acre), on the premises. We’ve even had Black Bear swim across the pond! NOTE: If The Sandhill Cranes & Geese are nested at the pond, the pond will be off limits from the end of April to the end of June to provide a peaceful & non-threatening environment to raise their babies.  However, we do offer viewing through our spotting scopes from a safe & non-invasive viewing area.

There is plenty more animal watching and spotting at “Blue Sky”….click here to read more!

You can mountain bike right from your cabin on the scenic gravel roads or the nearby mountain bike trails in the area.

We have numerous hiking trails of varying degrees within minutes of “Blue Sky”!  The Absaroka/ Beartooth Wilderness is over 943,000 acres!  Most people quickly discover that a day or two is just not enough.  With 944 lakes and nine major drainages, the Beartooths are also an angler’s paradise!  About 350 lakes have stocked or naturally reproducing trout populations.  In this wilderness the vast majority of activity occurs in the Beartooths.  Even though the Beartooths attract lots of visitors, the area can absorb this use in a way that can give you the feeling you have the wilderness to yourself.  Instead of competing for designated campsites or huts, backcountry travelers can camp anywhere.  And anywhere is a big place in the Beartooths!!  You can hike to over 10,000 feet and experience the Alpine tundra or take an easy hike among the evergreens to a dramatic waterfall.   For trail descriptions and planning, we recommend The Falcon Guide Book entitled “Hiking the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness”.  “Blue Sky” is centrally located near the East Rosebud Drainage. There are maps & hiking books in the cabins as well.  We can point you in the right direction upon arrival. There are hundreds of trails from easy to challenging.   Note: we recommend hiking with Bear Spray.  We have some on hand here for your use, but if you plan to hike in Yellowstone, you will need to purchase you own canister.

Backpacking, four-wheeling, whitewater rafting, horseback riding,  guided river fishing & rock climbing are all located nearby through various different companies.  You can go to and click on adventures to find prices & a list of all the outfitters.

A wonderful 18 hole golf course is located in Red Lodge.

The Beartooth Highway, a thrilling mountain drive, which takes you up in elevation to almost 11,000 feet and which Charles Kuralt called “the most beautiful roadway in America”, is only a few miles away.

( Note: The Beartooth Highway is open only from Memorial Day to mid-October, due to heavy snowfall.)

We are close to Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks.  Try a loop drive from Luther/Red Lodge over the Beartooth Highway into Yellowstone (the Northeast Entrance and back to “Blue Sky” via the North Entrance & Livingston, Montana to I-90 & Highway #78 to Luther.

The world famous Home of Champions Rodeo, Iron Horse Rodeo (Beartooth Rally) & Classic Car show take place in the summer months as well as a Norba mountain biking Race & many more festivities through out the year.

Please be sure to plan enough time to drive our mountain roads.  The roads are very well maintained but distances on the maps can be deceiving.  If you really want to experience the beauty of the Beartooths you will want to stop and explore along the way or maybe take a photo of the majestic Elk in the mountain meadow.

We hope you’ll come experience the “Big Sky Country” and the serenity of “Blue Sky”.
