The Ranch was everything we expected and more. The glamping accommodations and private homes were absolutely luxurious. We participated in most activities available. Our family enjoyed them all! We would recommend booking your favorite activities before you get to the ranch so as not to be disappointed. Food was delicious and service was wonderful in meeting our needs. We hope... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Ranch at Rock Creek for a week between Christmas and New Years. The ranch is one of the most spectacular places I have ever visited, with breathtaking views, beautifully and creatively decorated rooms, and unparalleled service. It is both elegant and unique. It offers a wide variety of activities, which the staff... More

The Ranch at Rock Creek is a magical place - a step back in time no matter the season - but during the winter it's a one-of-a-kind experience. We had fresh powder snow every day for downhill skiing in at Discovery Mountain, or for cross-country skiing the 22 miles of freshly groomed trails on Ranch property! We skated on the... More

That's why i rate it a four. So much going for it, wonderful location, great activities, very decent food but it doesn't quite rate a five star. Inconsistencies in the service, lodging facilities that have defective equipment in it, cure-able but overlooked flaws that are enough to take a bit of the shine off the overall experience. Our suite, located... More

Imagine that you have an old friend who has become very wealthy and bought himself a ranch in Montana and equipped it with every (generally authentic) amenity that a billionaire's ranch should have: Horses? check. Guns? Yup. Fly Fishing? Yes. Fantastic Food? In spades. Beautiful and unusual accommodations? You bet! A Spa? Unaccountably, a spa. Now imagine that he invites... More

This is an amazing place to stay. Everything is first class, service was very warm, friendly and accommodating in every aspect. Everything is included and the food was simply incredible.

I was skeptical. Could it live up to its reputation, Could everything be perfect ? I went with a critical eye, ready to seize all opportunities to challenge the only Forbes 5 star ranch... I failed. It was as good as it gets. It blew us away. Did we test it enough ? Well, how is a wedding with 150... More

There are many things to love about this place -- beautiful grounds, personable and friendly service and the all-inclusive activities. Like our other favorite resort in North America -- Sonora Resort -- you just know when you've arrived at a place where the owner has spared no expenses. But the highlight for us was the food. It's always disappointing to... More
