The Lodge at Sun Ranch Prepares to Open; Represents an
Renaming of the Original Papoose Creek Lodge Located On a Sustainable
Ranching Operation in Southwestern Montana
CAMERON, Mont., March 25, 2008 - A uniquely American twist on the eco-lodge concept, The Lodge at Sun Ranch offers pampered seclusion in the heart of the real-world Sun Ranch sustainable ranching operation in southwestern Montana's breathtaking Madison River Valley. The U.S.'s newest eco-lodge, slated to open June 1, 2008, combines exceptional service, chef-prepared local and organic gourmet meals and guided backcountry adventures with serious environmental preservation practices and green education.
An intimate luxury accommodation, The Lodge at Sun Ranch caters to a mere 16 guests at maximum capacity, surrounded by the 26,000-acre Sun Ranch in Cameron, Montana. The ranchlands are part of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, abutting the Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area, and encompass unique and important wildlife migration routes between the Madison and Gravelly mountain ranges.
The Lodge at Sun Ranch represents an expansion, relocation and renaming
of Sun Ranch Group's original hospitality operation, the award-winning
Papoose Creek Lodge. Relocated to the ranch's main house, the new lodge
boasts 10,000 square feet of space and offers guests six guest rooms and
suites in the main building and two freestanding cabins, as well as expanded
common areas including a larger kitchen, dining room and wine cellar --
while incorporating the same outstanding recreational opportunities, service
and commitment to sustainability that built the Papoose Creek Lodge reputation.
The Lodge at Sun Ranch and the Sun Ranch 1,500-head holistic ranch operation, along with the nonprofit Sun Ranch Institute, are part of the Sun Ranch Group, a fully sustainable "conservation enterprise" built around environmentally credible practices in real estate, agriculture and recreation. Sun Ranch Group also includes the Sun Ranch Settlement, a minimal residential real estate community; Sun Ranch Construction, which oversees construction of homes using green building techniques and materials; and Sun Ranch Group Conservation and Consulting Service, which helps other land owners and businesses employ Sun Ranch Group's innovative market-driven conservation business model.
