An unplanned adventure landed us at one of the most unforgettable vacation spots, I could ever imagine. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The staff were not just helpful and friendly but acted like we were family. With meals that tantalized every taste bud and drinks that I have not been able to duplicate since. The... More

We only came to the ranch for a few days, but wished we would have stayed longer and enjoyed the magnificent beauty and peacefulness of the of the property. We stayed in a cabin and it was wonderful. The service was above expectations. The activities were well planned and tons of memories to go with them. The friends we made... More

From the website, we knew we were venturing into a unique and perhaps somewhat remote environment; hoping to get some work done while getting a bit of R&R. Never, though, did we expect the combination of natural panoramas, friendly, attentive service, authentic décor, fantastic cuisine and an endless array of activities. We worked, we laughed, we played, we dined...and, at... More

This is my 2nd visit to the Ranch at Rock Creek and it was just as exceptional as my first visit in June 2013. The Ranch in the winter is equally as beautiful as in the summer and has plenty of activities to enjoy. We were here for NYE and were treated to a phenomenal dinner with a live band... More

What a pleasure it was to have you back to experience winter, after the wonderful visit you had summer of 2013! There is nothing quite as refreshing as crisp, January mountain air from the top of Discovery Ski Basin. The tough part will be deciding when to visit next, as both seasons have so much to offer! Until then, happy... More

Of all the possible luxury destinations, I can’t imagine anything better than the Ranch at Rock Creek. It is the perfect combination of outdoor activities – horseback riding, fly fishing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling – with all the apres ski amenities you could dream of – large fireplaces, beautiful spa, etc. We went downhill skiing at Discovery Mountain – only 20...

What a fun weekend you and your friends had! It was such a pleasure to have you here to celebrate a special birthday. Flint the ranch pup loved being included in all of the fun and I don't think I've ever seen him so exhausted day after day. We look forward to your return but until then, happy trails! More

My wife and I spent a week at The Ranch At Rock Creek recently, and I couldn't recommend it more highly!
