Tucked into the foothills of the dramatic Beartooth Mountains and sitting on the banks of the West Rosebud River is an historic getaway known as the Torgrimson Place at the Bench Ranch. Here, the Pulitzer Prize winning author Wallace Stegner escaped the hustle and bustle of everyday life to experience a retreat into the quiet, simple beauty of the natural landscape of Montana.
Big Sky Country, to see it is to believe it. Expansive vistas, wide-open prairies, rugged and spectacularly stacked mountain ranges, and trout-filled rivers grace this landscape. Like other prominent figures in American history, such as Lewis and Clark, Sitting Bull, Charlie Russell, and a score of acclaimed writers and artists, experience it with your own senses.
The Torgrimson Place is rare: this is sanctuary.
“I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.”
― John Steinbeck Travels with Charley: In Search of America
