The very best people and place to go horse back riding in Montana. Took my grandsons to the BarW horseback riding and they treated us like family. We had a great time and my grandsons loved it. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Thank you, G. Leanes

I was a little hesitant when we initially decided on a one-week vacation at BarW based on the fact that I was only an “occasional trail rider” (every 10 years or so) but wanted to see this part of the country. The wranglers provided the instruction and coaching to have me riding with confidence in a couple of days and...

This was our second time returning to The Bar W guest ranch. Once again, it did not disappoint. We were uncertain if we had built our first experience up in our minds, but the second time around was even better than the first! The outings are outstanding; the staff friendly and fun; the scenery breathtaking. Everyone goes out of their...

The Bar W experience has been one of the most memorable vacations our family has taken. Our original attraction to the Bar W was demographics (close to Glacier National Park, airports, and community activities since we were traveling over July 4th holiday). This Dude Ranch experience exceeded our expectations, so it was no surprise to us when we met returning...

My husband & I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by starting our 2 week adventure here. We were pleasantly welcomed by the knowledgable staff & also the owner, Jan, who excitedly showed us our 'tent' we would be lodging in. This tent is extraordinary in its rich decor of natural woods & comfortable linens on a 4 posted log bed,...

I couldn't begin to say enough about our family experience at the Bar W Guest Ranch. It was so far above and beyond any Disney style or resort based vacation we our family of 7 has ever before experienced. The daily rides, the optional programs for young children, the fantastic ranch house meals and western styled accomadations were wonderful. BUT...

Location was amazing, staff was very accommodating, personable, & bent over backwards to make sure we were happy. I am a vegetarian, & Terry the cook made me special meals. Andrew the General Manager couldn't have been more knowledgeable, and was always ready to help. Scott the head Wrangler let us take several special rides when we asked. Joe was...

The Bar W Guest Ranch was exciting from the minute we were picked up from the airport til the day we parted. My husband and I just retired and this was the best place ever to start that retirement! The horse riding experience was alittle like horsey boot camp for our bodies but every ache and pain was worth it....
