The Ranch at Rock Creek is the ideal place to call “home on the range”.  Situated near Philipsburg, and a short 1.5 hour transfer from the Missoula Airport, this Relais and Chateau property is a working ranch but redefines luxury in every aspect.  Accommodations range from cozy western lodge rooms to well-appointed tent suites where a claw-foot tub, wood burning stove and rippling creek acoustics will ensure a restful night sleep.

The fully-inclusive property provides fun for all ages and interests.  Little buckaroos can ride horses, go sledding, cast a line or enjoy a movie night in the on-property theater room. Discovery, known to the locals as “Disco”, offers family-friendly downhill skiing – without the lines.

Explore the nearby mountains on a snowshoe trek followed by mountaintop yoga complete with a fire and hot cocoa for warmth.  For the more adventurous spirits, set out on a snowmobile ride or try one of the many shooting ranges set up around the property.
