Ole time, honest to goodness family ranching; lots of space, peace
and quiet. Kombols homesteaded this ranch in 1909--rolling native prairie
and vast blue sky stretching toward the Little Snowy and the Big Snowy
Mountains to the west. Today Terry and Cathy Kombol work side by side
on the ranch while the fourth generation of Kombols are making plans
to follow in the footsteps of their forefathers.
Enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere and wide-ranging ranch activities
that combine to capture and enrich the lives of guests. The Kombols
have just about everything one could ask for -- cattle, horses, sheep,
goats, a donkey named Hombre and working border collies. Family and
friends eat hearty ranch meals featuring natural ranch-raised beef
The Ranch Operation has that days-gone-by feeling
Spring is all about calving and lambing and kidding the goats.
Branding is a time when friends and neighbors share the work as well
as the good food, music and storytelling.
Riding and roping is a way of life for the Kombols. Their cattle drives
are the highlights of the summer.
Cattle are gathered in the fall and trailed home; calves are shipped
to market and pre-conditioning begins the cycle for the next year’s

Terry is also the neighborhood “pump guy”. He learned
the way of water from his dad and he’s the one everyone calls
if their windmill water pump does not work.
Quilting is both a passion and an addiction
for Cathy. Her handiwork graces the ranch house and favorite pieces
of fabric stitched together make a link to the family’s past.
Be sure to take a sneak peak at the work-in-progress in her sewing
