Where do you go when you crave western adventure without leaving the country? The Ranch at Rock Creek, a spectacular ranch on 6,000 acres of pristine meadows and mountains in southwestern Montana. With luxury tented safari cabins (complete with en-suite bathrooms) fronting the trout-rich Rock Creek, lodge suites, and private log homes, the Ranch at Rock Creek is the vision of financier and owner Jim Manley. After twenty years combing the Rockies for the perfect property, and more perfecting his vision, the ranch blends authentic western ranch history with a new cowboy culture. Think made-to-order adventure like casting private water with your own guide, saddling up for a trail ride with sweeping views of the Pintler Mountains – all followed by incomparable service and the most delicious take on ranch cuisine west of the Mississippi.

Why We Love the Ranch

 

There is no shortage of stunning guest ranches dotting the American west. But none have such an authentic atmosphere, and the support and involvement of the entire community like the Ranch at Rock Creek. It's the way an iconic western town should be, but without all the dust.

 
 
 
 

Who Should GO

 

The ranch offers something for everyone. It is the ultimate getaway for family gatherings, weddings, honeymoons, winter retreats, and adventurers of all kinds. There's even a spa and exquisite cuisine to indulge in. Even the party barn makes for a perfect setting for inspiring corporate getaways. Who wouldn't want to plan their business strategy while channeling Butch Cassidy?

 
 
 

Chow Down

 

Speaking of the cuisine, the Ranch at Rock Creek offers some of the best ranch fare in the West. Offering world-class, regionally inspired cuisine, their talented Executive Chef, Josh Drage, has our palates whirling from home-spun BBQ and cornbread to gourmet fine-dining adventures and scrumptious riverside picnics. Enjoy a raucous evening of cowboy fare in the saloon with an epic western film or a bout of arm wrestling, washed down with a Bear Trap Cocktail (recipe below).

Our Favorite Digs

 

There are almost as many lodging options at the ranch as there are activities to choose from. Our favorite pick for a romantic getaway is the Trapper Cabin. Secluded and located along the creek, it comes complete with mountain bikes, a ranch Jeep, and hitching posts where you can tie up your horse after a ride.
