  • January 2021 | Couples vacation

    Our second trip to the Ranch and I didn’t think it was possible, but they out performed the first visit. The scenery is amazing, the activities are outstanding, the food is something to die for, but what really makes this place is the staff. They are the absolute best. They put all of the rest to shame with customer service. I have NEVER been so well treated on a vacation. We are already booked to return.

  • December 2020 | What an incredible Christmas experience!!

    We just returned from a 5 day stay at RC – we are still laughing and so thankful we went. We’ve had some luxury trips before but this one was over the top. From the pickup at our hotel in Missoula (Delaney) to the return back to Missoula (John) it was a 6 star experience. From the front desk staff Holly, Leanne, Aimee, Erin, Linda, Georgia, to Chase at the bar (thank you my friend for the great whiskey recommendations) and always keeping my whiskey glass replenished, Myron at the pistol and rifle ranges and that incredible snowmobiling trip, Jacob at the Buckle Barn, Kayden at Buckle Barn, Bella and the awesome horseback ride on Fridge and Shorty. I’m leaving names out I know but just had to call these out you made our first trip to The Ranch fantastic beyond measure! Every single staff member is so nice and the service is world-class. Every meal at The Buckle Barn was incredible – kudos to the kitchen crew there you guys rock!! Thanks for the Elk Sausage Gravy especially!!! The evening meals in the dining room equally first class every evening!!!…

  • November 2020 | Can’t Do Much Better…

    We’ve had the privilege of some amazing vacations around the world but we keep coming back to the Ranch at Rock Creek because of the incredible activities (hiking, horse riding, fly fishing, photography, art, spa, etc.) with excellent guides, the wonderful food (with chefs and waiters who understood how to cater to people with severe and complex food allergies) and a low key, relaxed vibe in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. We can’t recommend this place more highly and we’ll be back this summer.

  • October 2020 | Perfection

    If you want the trip of a lifetime, I suggest The Ranch at Rock Creek. From our arrival to departure, the staff could not do enough for the guests. Any change to itinerary was accommodated . Delicious food, beautiful property, accommodating staff….. a piece of heaven!

  • September 2020 | Family Vacation

    This was our first visit to the Ranch. Let me begin by saying that I am a retired U.S. Marine and I am not inclined to give a lot of praise to people for doing their job so you should view all of my positive comments as hard won. Words cannot describe our experience at the Ranch. We had a total of 9 in our party, including three teenagers. We stayed in Sara Janes cabin which was perfect for our group. We were a bit concerned because our stay at the Ranch was during COVID but we shouldn’t have been. Mask use, distancing, sanitation, etc. were all emphasized throughout our stay. It was evident from the time we arrived until the time we left that the Ranch was taking the COVID situation very seriously. Understandably, they have had to modify some of the activities and some of their procedures but in no way did this detract from the overall experience. Food, activities, accommodations, and overall service was amazing. The staff are exceptional. Of particular note was the dining staff and the bar staff. By the morning of the second day, the dining staff knew everyone in our group by name, knew likes and dislikes and went out of their way to make sure that everyone was happy. Ditto for the bar staff. When you can provide an overall experience like that during COVID, it says a lot about the professionalism of the staff and the overall direction being provided by management. We will be back to experience the Ranch after COVID, although I am not sure how it could be any better. Well done!!!

  • August 2020 | Great Accommodations, Excellent Food, Outstanding Staff

    It has all been said in previous reviews for this property. The guest houses are perfect and any location works as each guest house has its own golf cart to provide transportation. The meals are what one would expect from a Relais and Chateau property. Even the Cheeseburger is over the top. The bartenders learn your name quickly and remember drinks one would expect at a country club–a very good country club. All of the staff aim to please and work hard doing so.

    I highly recommend this property.

  • July 2020 | Flawless Experience in Magnificent Setting

    Our family of 4 with kids aged 16 and 13 stayed here for 5 nights. The experience was likely the top resort experience we’ve had, comparing favorably to Amangiri, Hualalai and other top resorts around the world. The food was spectacular and the service friendly and gracious. You’re given mountain bikes to get around the property, and it is stunningly beautiful at every turn, lying along miles of a beautiful river. We loved the fact that activities were included. The activities that really shone were trail riding, shooting sporting clays, mountain biking, and fly fishing.

  • June 2020 | The Ranch just gets better and better

    We have been annual guests at the Ranch since it opened – what a gem!! There are other locations that offer excellence in accomodations (no matter where you stay, all of the options are well appointed and extremely comfortable), activites (something for everyone), dining (Chef has been there from the beginning – so talented!!) – etc but the service and attention to detail at the Ranch are unsurpassed. Everyone has a extremely positive attitude and a desire to make your stay the very best possible as was demonstrated on our most recent visit. Because of travel restrictions, we were unable to be with family for a significant birthday for my husband so off to the little slice of heaven in Montana – the Ranch. Fly fishing was tops on our to do list and given the time of year, we were able to float Rock Creek. That day was something very special – a great guide, beautiful vistas and yes, even some fish. And of course the Ranch staff didn’t disappoint. We did not pass a ranch employee during our entire stay that didn’t wish my husband a happy b’day. Everyone went out of their way to come by our table to wish him well and joined in for a round of “Happy Birthday” when he was presented with a surprise birthday cake. I highly recommend the Ranch for your next get away. You’ll come back to reality completely renewed and yearning for a return visit.
