Dream trip: The Ranch at Rock Creek

World-renowned fly fishing. Epic mountain biking. Haute dining, haunted ghost towns, old-west culture and top-shelf amenities: Yes, you can find it all in one place at Montana’s Ranch at Rock Creek.

Situated at the foot of the towering Pintler Mountains almost exactly halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, the Ranch at Rock Creek is a true paradise for anyone who wants their nature served up with class. Boasting opulent rooms at the grand Granite Lodge as well as two authentic log cabins available for rent, and with its full complement of ranch activities, the Ranch immerses visitors in a lifestyle most have only imagined. No wonder that the Ranch has earned notice in magazines such as Elle, Outside and Robb Report.

The Jack Nicklaus-designed Old Works Golf Course is just a few miles away. Or, take advantage of the horseback riding, hiking and fishing on blue-ribbon trout waters right on the ranch grounds. Just a short drive away, visitors will find the quaint yet thriving town of Philipsburg, home to the aptly named Sweet Palace and a launching point to the ghost towns and abandoned historic mines that dot the surrounding mountains.

For those who simply want to relax, the Ranch’s Granite Spa is a full-service spa and offers massage, facials, mineral scrubs, manicure and pedicure as well as seasonal treatments.  The rustic yet refined interior of the spa celebrates the Wild West where the spa resides, but provides every creature comfort for a restful treatment and stay at the ranch…right down to the 1000 thread count sheets.  For more information regarding the spa and ranch please visit: http://www.theranchatrockcreek.com.

The Ranch at Rock Creek is just one of many dream vacation spots to be found in Southwest Montana, a large swath of mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes and hearty communities smack dab in the middle of Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Southwest Montana offers a sampling of all of Montana’s lightly-tread amenities including mega-mountains, lunker trout, budding melting pots for art and culture in Butte and Helena, and a slice of the Wild West through the numerous and well-preserved ghost towns in its mineral-rich hills. We look forward to seeing you under the big sky soon. Visit http://goldwest.visitmt.com for more information.
