For Parties & Conferences Large & Small
We may be minutes from the city, but we are miles away from city life! This quiet country setting is the perfect site for that special outdoor event. From family reunions, to company parties, or musical performances, Dunrovin’s creative staff is ready to use the ranch’s many resources as well as those of our business partners and larger community to help you host a truly unique event.
Consider a few examples:
- Surprise your family with a Bitterroot River float that brings them to Dunrovin for a gourmet dinner beneath the stars or a barbeque around a fire on the beach
- Host a family reunion with all the kissing cousins – stay at Dunrovin or host the relatives yourself and bring everyone out for a Day at Dunrovin full of ranch activities
- Invite your employee to a company party complete with horseback riding, swimming, and line dancing lessons after a hearty Montana steak dinner cooked to perfection on the grill!
- Hire a band, fire up the barbecue, and celebrate that special birthday or anniversary
- Belong to a singing group? Stage a performance and invite your friends and relatives to an evening concert
- Gather up those hard to please teenagers for a picnic complete with horseback riding lessons and swimming in the river
- Make a special outing for the seniors in your life with a picnic where they can connect with farm animals – our donkey, ponies, and dogs love an audience!
- The staff at Dunrovin has years of experience in the world of parties and events – and we love using our imaginations to cook up new twists on an old event (pin the Velcro tail on the real donkey!)

Winter at Dunrovin
While winter weather in Montana can be unpredictable and downright nasty for outdoor events – it can also be a magical time. Dunrovin Ranch has hosted a number of winter parties, picnics, and even performances. Our dance pavilion can be totally enclosed and comfortably heated when outside temperatures are above 20 degrees – which is frequently. Winter picnics have a very special charm with guests gathered around a fire pit to roast a s’more and drink a hot chocolate. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season – and the public land adjacent to Dunrovin has a terrific sledding hill. Our horses love to dress up for the holidays and participate in the fun – so if you believe like we do that “there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes” give us a call for a truly different winter outing.
Conferences & Retreats
Jump start your employees’ enthusiasm and creativity by holding a professional meeting or retreat at Dunrovin Ranch. Our outdoor ranch atmosphere is conducive to lowering office tensions, thinking outside the box, and team building. Gathering professionals in a setting that is relaxed, close to nature, and nothing like their everyday work world can open new avenues of communication and creative thinking. The ranch’s many outdoor amenities can be incorporated into the day’s program: meeting participants can gather around a fire pit for lunch, pick some raspberries or strawberries from the garden, or take a short river side walk during meeting breaks. Just being surrounded by the sights, smells, and sounds of the river, the many birds that call Dunrovin home, the horses playing in the pastures, and the landscaped gardens and orchard serve to encourage participants to step outside their usual thinking and to communicate with each other on a different level.
Dunrovin’s dance pavilion is a unique, but very adequate venue for meetings, seminars, and roundtable discussions for groups up to 40 people. Breakout groups can gather on individual picnic tables for small group discussions; and the entire front deck can be used as a stage for presentations to up to 300. Dunrovin can take care of all of your meeting needs for audio visual equipment, flip charts, refreshments, and meals.
