How to Get Here?
Bozeman airport has regular flights and rental cars available. Bus lines drop off passengers at Bozeman and Livingston bus depots. Bozeman is a 1.5 hour drive from the ranch. Arrange your own transportation from these drop-off points to the ranch or see below.
Limited transportation by van service to the Ranch will be available from December 27 through January 2. Vans leave Bozeman airport at noon and 6pm each day, also picking up passengers at the Comfort Inn in Bozeman and Bozeman and Livingston bus depots. Reservations for these dates are required by December 15. For reservations, e-mail RAmrhein@TSL.org with all your travel details or call 1-800-323-5228 and leave a detailed message. DEPARTURE TIMES for vans to Bozeman Airport and both bus stations will vary. Please contact Richard Amrhein upon arrival at the Ranch to arrange your departure transportation.
At the time of your arrival pickup, please pay the Transportation Reimbursement cost (cash only) for both arrival and departure to the driver: $60.00 one way per adult to or from Bozeman and $35.00 to or from Livingston. We ask you to please bring ONLY one suitcase and your carry-on due to limited space in the van. There will be a $10 surcharge for each suitcase after the first one. For all other arrivals and departures, please plan on making your own transportation arrangements.
How to find our van driver at the airport
Get your luggage at the Baggage Claim. At your van pickup time, be at the airport Baggage Claim area near the kiosk with the hotel phones. The van driver will be carrying a sign that says The Summit Lighthouse Airport Van.
If you would like to use our van service but arrive at Bozeman airport after the last daily van departure (6pm), you can stay overnight in Bozeman. We have arranged a special rate at the newly renovated Comfort Inn, 1370 N 7th Ave, Bozeman, MT 59715. Phone 1-406-587-2322 or e-mail CMelvin@ComfortInnBozeman.com to make your reservation. Make sure to tell them you are from THE SUMMIT LIGHTHOUSE so you can receive this special rate. The Comfort Inn offers a shuttle from the Bozeman Airport to the hotel until midnight. You must make arrangements for this at the time of booking your accommodation or at least 24 hours BEFORE your arrival time in Bozeman. You will be collected the following day by our van from the ranch and taken to the Inner Retreat. (Remember to make your reservations for the ranch van before December 15.)

Motels in Gardiner
Meals at Ranch Headquarters
Healthy meals including vegetarian options will be available for purchase in our cafeteria. Restaurants and grocery stores are available in Gardiner.
Internet and phone service
Due to the location of the Royal Teton Ranch in rural Montana, there are significant limitations in communication options. The only cell service at the ranch is Verizon, and coverage is spotty. No other cell providers operate in the area. Landline phones are available and calling cards can be purchased in the bookstore. Free Wi-Fi is available in the cafeteria building, but the limited bandwidth does not allow video streaming or other resource-intensive use. These constraints are a result of our beautiful but remote location.
