Staubach Creek
Cattle Ranch and Guest House

The Ranch

Our Story

Staubach Creek Ranch is a family-owned and operated cattle ranch and guest ranch nestled in the picturesque Southwest Montana countryside. Founded in 1997 by Jeff and Marie Hoeffner, the ranch has established a reputation for its commitment to raising high-quality Black Angus cattle while preserving the traditional western way of life. With a focus on family values and a love of the land, the ranch offers a unique opportunity for guests to experience ranch life up close and personal. You'll have the chance to help with daily ranch chores such as feeding the cattle, fixing fences, and tending to the horses. And if you're looking for a more leisurely vacation, the guest ranch offers a variety of activities including horseback riding, hunting, hiking, and bird watching.

Our working cattle ranch spans more than 1,800 acres of beautiful Montana landscape, complete with rolling hills, lush meadows, and stunning mountain views. Our accommodations range from a ranch style house to a historic wedding venue, all designed with comfort and relaxation in mind.

At Staubach Creek Ranch we pride ourselves on our commitment to sustainability and preserving the natural beauty of Big Sky Country. Our ranch is operated with the utmost care for the land and the animals that call it home.


So whether you're seeking adventure, relaxation, or a bit of both, Staubach Creek Ranch is the perfect destination for your next Montana vacation. We invite you to come and experience the beauty and hospitality of our working cattle ranch and guest ranch located in Winston, Montana.

Valentine Staubach, a German immigrant, homesteaded the ranch in 1865. The property's brick home was constructed shortly thereafter, with the upper level completed in the early 1900s. The barn, built by owner Antone Meyer in the 1920s, is the ranch's focal point.


The Hoeffner family purchased the ranch, which includes most of the original Staubach land, in 1997. Jeff and Marie Hoeffner and their adult children, Colin, Caitlin, and Kenneth, along with Kenneth's wife Angela, operate the ranch, contributing in unique ways. They raise 400 cattle and crops of hay and alfalfa. If you're looking for a historic ranch with a thriving cattle and crop operation, the Hoeffner family's ranch is worth considering.
