Check Us Out On Netflix!
In 2021, we were thrilled to make our Netflix debut on season two of the popular series The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals. As part of a special episode titled “Giveback Getaways”, our guest ranch in Livingston, MT was highlighted along with several other philanthropic travel destinations around the world. If you have a Netflix account, you can watch the episode by clicking the link below.
The hosts of the show – Megan Batoon, Luis D. Ortiz, and Jo Franco – were welcomed to the ranch by Sam, the first member to move into Erik’s Ranch & Retreats, and our founder and CEO Kathryn Nordberg. After explaining our mission, Sam showed the hosts around the property and led one of our complimentary hikes, sharing his passion for history and geology and knowledge of the land.
During their stay, the hosts spent the night in our renowned Cargill-Earl Guesthouse. Like so many others, they absolutely fell in love with it. These world travelers were captivated by the incredible mountain views, solitude, and simplistic design of the property. In the morning, they had a chance to experience the incredible beauty of a mountain sunrise just outside of the Cargill-Earl Guesthouse.
The hosts enjoyed additional Erik’s Ranch & Retreats tours, including Keep Calm and Brush On led by our member Maggie where they brushed and groomed horses in our stable. During this tour, they also met Kathryn Nordberg’s son, Erik, and she shared her personal story of why she started this organization for him and others on the autism spectrum. Before leaving the ranch, the hosts were treated to a musical performance by one of our former members and participated in our Sundowner Grizzly Excursion.
