I am currently at the Ranch. I researched this ranch just like you and read the reviews and was a little skeptical of how it could have 5 stars with over 600 reviews. Certainly someone had to be disappointed right? But no! Believe the hype. We arrived yesterday and the attention to detail is stellar. The food has been incredible, staff super friendly and the perfect blend of activity and relaxation. I will add to this review at the end of the trip but if your thinking about this place just book it!! Also, we took a private helicopter from Bozeman airport to the Ranch and it was an incredible experience as well. We witnessed the beautiful landscape of Montana along the way and even saw a bear. We used Rocky Mountain Rotors. Very knowledgable, friendly and of course safe.

Property's Favorite Review
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!!! We stayed in the lodge in the Winchester room - loved it every minute and the decor is something out of a western movie! Thanks for the Christmas Tree in our room it made the holiday!!! Shoutout to Jon the GM for telling us about Whiskey & Water Weekend next Labor Day - we already booked our return trip! We could go on and on about this property and are counting down the days until we come back next Labor Day 2021!

Dear aztravelcpl, Thank you for your review and it was great getting to know you over the holidays here. It makes my day to see you mention so many of our awesome employees here at The Ranch that made your stay special, even our 4-legged team members Fridge and Shorty! I'm thrilled that you will be back for Whiskey and Water Weekend in September when it looks like a totally different ranch with all kinds of new activities and events to take in. We'll keep working hard at getting better every day and exceed your expectations again in 9 months. Best regards, Jon Martin General Manager

Truly excellent in all regards - both service and activities - and special issues of all types. Our group of 11 contained ages ranging from 76 to 1 and 1/2 and a very pregnant person, various dietary restrictions, special requests and one who tested positive for Covid shortly after arrival. RC handled everything effortlessly and perfectly.

Ocean Springs, Mississippi4 contributions2 helpful votes
We had a great time visiting the Ranch at Rock Creek. The quality of the food, the horseback riding and fly fishing are exceptional. Unfortunately, there are some key areas where it is below the expectations of a 5 star luxury resort. 1) The Ranch lacks adequate capacity to seat guests property for meals. At the Granite Lodge, the Ranch has to seat some guests on an outside patio that is covered by a tent and heated with a gas heater. During our 5 night stay, my husband and I were never able to dine inside at the Granite Lodge for dinner. We were always seated on the outside patio - it was 50 degrees and raining outside. We ate as quickly as possible and left. Also, because of lack of adequate seating capacity, we were seated with another couple that we did not know for dinner one night at the Buckle Barn. This is unacceptable and inconsistent with the expectation and practices of a 5 star resort. And, Families with disruptive children are seated amongst adults and couples. There are no separate areas and activities for families with children so they are running in the dining rooms, pitching fits, and being disciplined by parents etc. in front of other guests. 2) The availability of activity reservations (fly fishing, horseback riding etc) is inadequate. We made our reservations 6 months in advance. By the time our Ranch Ambassador contacted us 3 weeks prior to arrival to schedule our activities most days/times for activities were already booked. When we made our reservations we told the Ranch's agent we were coming only for the fly fishing and horseback riding - they failed to mention that there would be any difficulty with availability of those activities. Overall, we had a good time at the ranch. The quality of the food, the fly fishing, and the horseback riding were exceptional. But, the deficiencies above really need to be fixed in order for me to feel comfortable recommending to others.

Hello russmagi2021 - thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I apologize that your overall experience did not meet your standards or our own. While we encourage socializing and outdoor dining during the summer months, I understand your frustrations given the weather during your visit. I'm excited to announce that the outdoor dining space will be enclosed in the coming months with the ability to open it up during the summer. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your horseback riding and fly fishing trips. With more than 30 different activities offered each season, the Ranch's vision is to encourage our guests to experience a variety of different adventures so that you may get an authentic Montana ranch experience! I hope that we will have an opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Thank you, Jeremy

This was our 2nd trip to RC for our family! The place, people, amenities, activities, views, accommodations, literally everything are above and beyond expectations. Simply stated, we will be back again and again! We have enjoyed stays in properties in Europe, Asia, and all over the Americas / Caribbean - We literally can not tell you one other vacation that holds a candle to the Ranch at Rock Creek!

So many guests before us have eloquently expressed their time at the Ranch at Rock Creek. Please see the hundreds of excellent reviews, because they are all true! Outstanding in every sense. Made so many friends. Staff is amazing. Food was top notch. Special thanks to Brooke in Guest Services. And to Brian for fishing with me on Rock Creek. My wife and I are already talking with several couples who knew about our trip! They want to go back with us.

It is hard to find the words to describe our experience at The Ranch at Rock Creek. From the food, to the accommodations, to the activities, to the wonderful staff, everything was top notch. The ranch is a place where luxury meets outdoor adventure. True irony at it's finest and in the very best way. The ruggedness of the ranch is never lost and our outdoor adventurous spirits were completely fulfilled. Couple those things with the finest dining experiences, amazing wine selections, fine linens in a perfectly appointed room and I just can't think of anything better. We will never forget the attentive staff and guides we met along the way, all equally passionate about ranch life and whatever their task on the ranch was. I don't think I will ever forget their names or the experiences they helped us have. This place is magic. And we can't wait to come back.

What an amazing vacation. Best location you can imagine: mountains, river, meadows, great trails. Accommodations were great. Everything you could ever want to do: shooting, biking, hiking, horseback riding, sapphire mining, relaxing. Amazing food. Super attentive and friendly staff. When everything is taken care of for you and just get to enjoy the experience, what more can you ask for?
