The Ranch Wins 2nd Forbes Travel-Guide Five-Star Honor

The skies have been clear for stargazing lately, but the most exciting constellation we’re seeing today is from one of the world’s most trusted travel authorities. Forbes Travel Guide has named The Ranch at Rock Creek a five-star resort for the second consecutive year. We are one of only 115 worldwide hotels to earn this award in 2015.

The Forbes Travel Guide Award

The Forbes Travel Guide star rating system, formerly Mobil Travel Guide, has been awarded since 1958. They use a system of 800 objective criteria to award a 1 to 5 star rating. It’s exhilarating and very satisfying to receive their highest award two years in a row. Forbes Travel Guide explains their Five-Star Award:

These exceptional hotels provide a memorable experience through virtually flawless service and the finest of amenities. Staff is intuitive, engaging and passionate, and eagerly goes beyond expectations. The hotel was designed with your comfort in mind, with particular attention paid to craftsmanship and quality of product. A Forbes Travel Guide Five Star property is a destination unto itself.

The fact that Forbes Travel Guide does such a thorough, anonymous review of a property each year, allows us to celebrate the attention to detail that can turn a routine vacation into a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. As the only Montana property to receive this award and as the world’s first Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star ranch resort, we ensure that a trip to the remote Montana wilderness doesn’t mean foregoing the comforts of home and hospitality.

All-Star All-Inclusive

In fact, a little pampering mixed with adventure and exploration is what makes our Ranch a unique vacation. We are an all-inclusive property, meaning that you might forget your wallet in your room for several days or the entire trip while you enjoy yourself.

Although being all-inclusive isn’t required to achieve the Forbes Travel Guide rating, we believe it is one of the things that sets us apart. Included are luxurious Granite Lodge, private home or glamping accommodations, a 6,600-acre playground comprised of meadows, forest, peaks and a Blue Ribbon trout stream, a comprehensive on-Ranch activities program featuring the best of Western sport and adventure, expert staff and guides, gear, gourmet meals, snacks, wine, beer and spirits, local and long-distance telephone calls, Wi-Fi, on-Ranch transportation, nightlife in the Silver Dollar Saloon and dozens of additional amenities.

Luxury Travel, Lifetime Value

The lasting value in a Ranch at Rock Creek adventure is that you are likely to pick up a new hobby, learn several new skills and weave memories that you will want to share for years to come.

The Forbes Travel Guide honor shows our historic Montana ranch as much more than a price tag. It’s a way to tick off bucket list activities, like fishing one of the world’s premier trout streams, viewing some of the largest wildlife in North America or learning to ride, saddle and care for a horse. We encourage those who are looking for a unique vacation with star-power to view our special seasonal celebrations. We hope you’ll come view our Big Sky stars for yourself.
