The Ranch at Rock Creek

Located in the heart of Western Montana, The Ranch at Rock Creek is the world’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star ranch and the only US charter member of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection. Owner Jim Manley searched the American West for 20 years to find the perfect ranch. Originally a working ranch homesteaded in the early 1900’s, he opened it as an all-inclusive guest ranch in 2010. Relais & Châteaux have spent the last five years expanding the frontiers of luxury travel with one-of-a-kind accommodations, extensive amenities, inventive cuisine and access to over 20 guided outdoor activities on 6,600 acres of mountains, meadows, forests, trout ponds and a mountain-fed creek.


The Unique Lodge features nine one-of-a-kind rooms, lavishly appointed in authentic Western style.

The all-inclusive ranch hosts the ultimate glamping adventure. Enjoy immersion in nature without sacrificing modern comforts.

The remodelled 19th Century barn has three specialty accommodations that capture the historic splendour of a Montana ranch vacation.

From two-story log homes to a cosy single-bed romantic cabin, the luxury homes are your private home on the range.

The Montana spa treatments emphasize relaxation and rejuvenation of the body, mind and spirit. All of the services are customized to meet the specific needs and preferences of each guest. Treatments include access to the Granite Spa cedar sauna.

Each guest who receives a facial treatment will also receive the gift of a Sanitas Skin Care System to continue your skin’s rejuvenation long after your stay at The Ranch

The Ranch at Rock Creek kitchen tells a story about Montana stock, wildlife, herb and harvest. With regionally and locally-sourced organic ingredients, Chef Drage’s Ranch menus and dining experiences mirror Montana seasonal bounty. Preparation is equal parts mountain tradition and modern palate, often employing a wood fire grill, a Dutch oven or the full array of a state-of-the-art kitchen.

Ranch style dining captures experiences like horseback riding through grasslands and, later, tasting Montana alfalfa in the grass-fed beef or wildflowers in a Sapphire Mountain honey vinaigrette. Raise your glass to farm and ranch-to-table cuisine with an expertly paired local draught or regional wine. All meals are included and tailored to dietary restrictions and preferences. A children’s menu is always available.
