Our family of 3 has always wanted to do a "dude ranch" vacation as well as Glacier National Park. This trip allowed us to do both. The Bar W Guest Ranch was awesome!

Our daughter picked this ranch out on-line a couple of years ago and it took us a while to make all the arrangements/plans. We chose "GLAMPING" for our accommodations and it turned out to be 200% better than what we imagined/expected. We are not the "sleeping outdoors" kind of people but our tent experience was awesome!!! It had electricity, it... More
