Let me start by saying that the web site that describes this resort is beautifully designed, but does not do it justice. This place is Amazing. Breathtaking. Exciting. Relaxing, with a staff that truly makes this destination extraordinary!

My husband and I had a fabulous time in late September/early October at the Ranch at Rock Creek. The ranch. nestled in between three mountain ranges, was spectacular. We stayed in the Winchester Room of the Granite Lodge, which was was cozy and wonderfully appointed with beautiful western furnishings. This also enabled us to take full advantage of the lodge's...

My Dad and I spent 4 days at the ranch this summer and it was the best vacation we have ever had! We did almost all the activities, and had a great time with each one. My favorite activities were the shooting and the fly fishing. The staff and the guides treated us like royalty! And the food was AMAZING!!... More

My wife and I spent a week at The Ranch At Rock Creek recently, and I couldn't recommend it more highly! We'd heard that it's considered the world's number one luxury ranch and it would be tough to disagree with that statement. From the moment you arrive, you'll be in awe of the Ranch's enviable landscape, and everywhere you turn... More

We spent a week at the Ranch in late August. Norwood picked us up at the Missoula airport. He told us all about the ranch and things we should try on the way over. We didn't have great weather for the first 5 days. I guess it was the coldest and most unpredictable August on record. Anyhow the last 2... More

Food: I love food. I love cooking it, eating it, talking about it. We come from Edinburgh where we enjoy the cooking of Michelin starred chefs, and other great fine dining experiences.

Our trip to the Ranch at Rock Creek to attend a wedding will go down as the most memorable family vacation we've ever experienced. The property is magnificent, with views in every direction. The guest houses, "glamping tents" (don't be fooled by the word "tents," they are spectacular) and Granite Lodge are externally understated, but elegantly appointed inside. The service... More

It was a pleasure hosting such a beautiful wedding at our property and seeing you all enjoy the festivities. We are thrilled that the service and food exceeded expectations for your group. It is fantastic that you felt “off the grid”, but comfortably so and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Ranch. More

My husband and I enjoyed a six day vacation at the Ranch at Rock Creek in August 2014.

The Ranch at Rock Creek provides a marvelous, although expensive, Western experience. There are well organized activities (e.g., fishing, shooting, biking) for travelers, with or without children. The food is great and the service outstanding. The chef and sous chef are excellent as is Shannon, the bartender. The only negatives I could think of are that the nearest town, Philipsburg,... More
