The Ranch at Rock Creek is a magical place - a step back in time no matter the season - but during the winter it's a one-of-a-kind experience. We had fresh powder snow every day for downhill skiing in at Discovery Mountain, or for cross-country skiing the 22 miles of freshly groomed trails on Ranch property! We skated on the... More

That's why i rate it a four. So much going for it, wonderful location, great activities, very decent food but it doesn't quite rate a five star. Inconsistencies in the service, lodging facilities that have defective equipment in it, cure-able but overlooked flaws that are enough to take a bit of the shine off the overall experience. Our suite, located... More

Imagine that you have an old friend who has become very wealthy and bought himself a ranch in Montana and equipped it with every (generally authentic) amenity that a billionaire's ranch should have: Horses? check. Guns? Yup. Fly Fishing? Yes. Fantastic Food? In spades. Beautiful and unusual accommodations? You bet! A Spa? Unaccountably, a spa. Now imagine that he invites... More

This is an amazing place to stay. Everything is first class, service was very warm, friendly and accommodating in every aspect. Everything is included and the food was simply incredible.

I was skeptical. Could it live up to its reputation, Could everything be perfect ? I went with a critical eye, ready to seize all opportunities to challenge the only Forbes 5 star ranch... I failed.

There are many things to love about this place -- beautiful grounds, personable and friendly service and the all-inclusive activities.

Stayed at the ranch for Christmas 2014 and completely enjoyed ourselves. Stayed in the main lodge and took advantage of snow mobiling, snowshoeing, sking, and riding. We had a personal guide for all the activities. Meals were incredible especially christmas dinner in the big barn.
