The Ranch at Rock Creek


Near Philipsburg, Montana

The scoop on this luxury ranch experience is that the Ranch at Rock Creek was created as a passion project by its owner, an investment banker who dreamed of being a cowboy while growing up. As an adult with a family and a successful career, he set out to bring that dream to life. He searched for 10 years before finally finding a location that met his strict standards – 6,600 pristine acres of snake and bear-free prairie, river and mountains teeming with wildlife, and all in western Montana. This was a very specific list to fulfill a life-long dream. We call this goal oriented and say thank you for sharing. Today, it is the world’s only officially rated Five-Star guest ranch. In keeping the dream alive and maintaining this standard, they recently earned that designation for the fourth year in a row. Being this exceptional and paying attention to each guest’s desire, the ranch has become a top retreat for celebrities and discerning travelers who want to experience the majesty of the American Frontier tempered with Relais & Chateau service, accommodations and cuisine.

Choices for sleeping accommodations range from Glamping Cabins to a Historic Barn with lot of other fantastic offerings in between and plenty of room to roam. Because of all of this majestic room, the activities available to guests are varied and fitting for that memorable ranch-lifestyle vacation. Seasonally, guests find the action-packed list of things to do more in keeping with a sporting vacation than that of the romanticized version of a cowboy’s life. Either way the choices are there and your imagination should guide you in deciding how much or how little of the archery, snowmobiling, mountain biking, heli-adventuring, clay shooting, horseback riding, and even sapphire mining you want to partake in. Giddyup!
