We started at RC at the beginning of our one month long honeymoon. On our first night we met two new couples who we literally became instant friends for life with and then spent the next few days together, along with some new friends made the next night. The accommodation is wonderful - would definitely recommend Bluebird or Apache rooms....

My husband and I went here from May 8-May 14, 2016, for my graduation trip. We have been to lots of places, including Europe, and the beauty of the ranch paralleled the beauty of Switzerland when I lived there undergrad. We used the Ranch Escalades to pick us up- it's pricey but it's a private ride, with tons of snacks...

Dear Jennie, Thank you for spending your celebratory graduation trip with us! It is often so difficult to describe what our special corner of Southwestern Montana is like, but now I'll be borrowing your phrase of our parallel to Switzerland when I describe our foothills and snow-crested mountain views. Spring is an incredibly picturesque time of year here with the...

The Ranch was everything we expected and more. The glamping accommodations and private homes were absolutely luxurious. We participated in most activities available. Our family enjoyed them all! We would recommend booking your favorite activities before you get to the ranch so as not to be disappointed. Food was delicious and service was wonderful in meeting our needs. We hope...

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...

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...
