What We Love

Montana is made for horses and The Ranch at Rock Creek is made for you to play cowboy or cowgirl! No need to travel far for outdoor adventure because everything is at your fingertips. Plus your itinerary is tailor-made with wranglers at the ready to guide you through a next-level dude ranch stay. So pack your jeans, cowboy boots and Western wear. Your Great American West vacation includes Big Sky Country thrown in for good measure.



The Granite Spa is grounded in the tradition that Montanans foster a deep connection with the land through work, wellness and play. After a long day on the range, bathe away your tired muscles with a Saddle Sore Soak treatment that includes a restorative massage—a perfect balance of targeted therapy for deep mind and body relaxation. Treatments include access to the cedar sauna, shower facilities and relaxation area. 

The Ranch’s mind and body program also focuses on unplugging from an urban setting and tapping into your natural surroundings. Sessions include yoga, meditation, forest meditation and wildcrafting. 



The activities program, like everything at The Ranch, is designed with individual tastes, preferences and needs in mind. Everything is included here—from trail riding, arena events and roping to fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, archery, ziplining, cross-country skiing, ice skating and snowmobiling. If you’re looking for a place to let loose in the evening, you won’t be disappointed at the Silver Dollar Saloon. Offering modern entertainment for adults and kids alike, the saloon features a billiards table, a four-lane bowling alley, karaoke and a flatscreen TV showing spaghetti Westerns. 



Culinary Highlights

The dining experiences at The Ranch reflect the fine art of living. Breakfast and lunch are filled with inventive, varied and nutritious choices, and each evening guests tuck into farm-to-table cuisine that aims to elevate Montana’s legendary western past into an intimate and curated cultural experience. Meals are served in The Granite Lodge, the Blue Canteen and the Buckle Barn (depending on the event), with some flexibility to accommodate individual schedules and preferences. This way, if you'd rather be out hiking or fishing the evening rise than rushing back for dinner, you won't miss out on The Ranch's remarkable culinary experience.





The Ranch at Rock Creek



The 29 one-of-a-kind accommodations, which can host up to 75 guests, are thoughtfully woven into the vast ranchland. Ranging in size from one-bedroom suites to five-bedroom homes, The Ranch offers four distinct styles of lodging: Granite Lodge suites, a converted Historic Barn, Log Cabin luxury homes and Canvas Cabins for glamping.

Granite Lodge

Appointed with custom-made furniture, woven textiles, frontier antiques and lavish linens, the nine rooms at Granite Lodge find design inspiration in iconic western themes. No two rooms are alike, although most upper-level rooms offer views of the Rock Creek valley. Some rooms may be combined to form a two-bedroom family suite that includes twin beds and pull-outs.

Historic Barn

Dating back to 1882, the barn was lovingly restored and converted into three luxury accommodations—Stables, Loft and Wrangler. Each of the three rooms can be booked separately, or reserved together as a three-bedroom family suite. 

Log Cabin Homes

Ranging from two-story log homes to a cozy single-bed romantic cabin, the eight rustically luxurious log cabins are your private home on the range. Every home includes ensuite bedrooms, so couples and friends can enjoy private space within the accommodation.

Canvas Cabins

For some, the definitive experience at The Ranch is to glamp it up in one of ten signature luxury canvas cabins. Each hybrid structure is furnished in rustic camp-style but features private baths, comfortable beds and luxurious bedding, and the murmur of the river running just outside your front door.
