Hardscrabble Ranch is a guest ranch thirty minutes north of either Bozeman or Livingston, Montana. The property hosts weddings, family reunions, retreats, and weekend getaways. The closest town is Clyde Park, a dozen miles east which has a post office, general store, gas station, and two bars. People come to us to be away from the crowds. The ranch is at the base of the Bridger Mountains on Brackett Creek and features a great view of Ross Peak.
On the 78-acre property guests stay in either the large barn which includes two lodges, a central open event area, and a working section, or in one of the fifteen glamping tents that line Brackett Creek. We offer guests fishing, hiking, biking, skiing and much more. The property sleeps up to roughly 24 guests in the winter and many more during the summer. We offer groups an outdoor cooking area, two complete kitchens, meeting spaces, mediocre Internet, and room to spread out.
As we have a busy spring and summer, we are seeking seasonal individuals or a couple to fill our apartment next to the main house.

Overall caretaking of the property
