Where Is The Real Life Yellowstone Dutton Ranch Located?

Paramount Network

Yellowstone is once again one of the hottest shows on television, as the fan favorite series has been re-airing on Sunday nights over on CBS. And with millions and millions tuning in each week, it’s been a pretty impressive showing for a network that is airing reruns.

Around 4.4 million viewers tuned in to Episode 4 this past weekend, and just under 4 million stuck around for Episode 5 immediately after. The series premiere earned nearly 7 million, so like I said, it’s definitely an impressive showing, which I imagine will translate into more viewers for the two prequels: 1883 and 1923.

Season 5 should resume production at some point this year, but if they don’t start soon, they might have to wait until spring of 2024 to begin filming the series finale. Why? Because it gets pretty damn cold in Montana during the winter… not exactly easy to shoot.

The storyline of the show is compelling, and the music is phenomenal (we’re talking about Cody Jinks, Colter Wall, Tyler Childers, Whiskey Myers, and even Zach Bryan), the show features some of the most captivating settings in all of TV.

Set in the beautiful state of Montana, near Yellowstone National Park, the real-life Dutton Ranch is actually the Chief Joseph Ranch in Darby, Montana.

And the best part? You can rent a cabin on the property.

That’s right people, if you’re a fan of the show Yellowstone, you can actually spend the night on the Dutton Ranch.

While you can’t stay in the Dutton home itself, the Chief Joseph Ranch does rent out two cabins on the property: the Ben Cook Cabin (which is Rip’s cabin in Season 1 and Casey’s cabin in Season 2)

And the Fisherman’s Cabin (which is Lee’s cabin in Season 1).

Lee Dutton Cabin

Each cabin sleeps 8 guests and has a full kitchen and a grill. The cost is between $1,400 and $1,700 per night (includes up to 4 guests) and $50 per night per each additional guest.

You can contact them on their website to find the availability, but right now, with them still filming the show for the foreseeable future, you’re going to have to book them well in advance. Is there better way to experience the great state of Montana, the great outdoors, AND get your Yellowstone fix? I don’t think so.

I mean, look at this place. Start planning next year’s vacation.
