All-Inclusive Adventure
at The Ranch at Rock Creek

Montana's only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Property

Limitless Possibilities

All-Inclusive Ranch Resort

The Ranch at Rock Creek’s hospitality is deeply rooted in its all-inclusive nature, which extends much further than most “all-inclusives” that cover food and a few complimentary activities. We know our guests do not want to forego a trail ride to a stunning Montana vista or a guided family fly fishing adventure due to time-consuming logistical planning and excursion or cancellation costs. It is our pleasure to offer all farm-to-table meals, a robust year-round outdoor activities program, and much more, based on the idea that our 6,600 acres will become your playground for the length of your stay.

What does all-inclusive mean?

  1. Accommodations with twice-daily housekeeping and in-room luxury amenities (see below).
  2. Dining options are available from 7:30 am to 10 pm daily. Farm-to-table Ranch cuisine includes coffee, tea and pastries; breakfast; lunch; social hour; and dinner.
  3. Unlimited premium beer, wine and spirits, as well as assorted beverages and snacks.
  4. Daily scheduled activities on property available from 9 am to 5 pm, with recommended booking of two per day.
  5. No schedule change fees or cancellation fees.
  6. All state-of-the-art gear and equipment required for the on-property activities program. For guest safety, we recommend bringing your own soft items like boots, hats and clothing.
  7. Access to the fitness center, pool and hot tub.
  8. Evening entertainment in the Silver Dollar Saloon, including billiards, poker table, shuffleboard, karaoke, table tennis, private movie theater, board games, four lanes of bowling and outdoor s’mores roasting over a bonfire.
  9. Airport transfers from Missoula, Butte and Anaconda airports.*
  10. Additional activities and special events during seasonal celebrations.
  11. On-Ranch transportation: all able guests are encouraged to walk or use their personal Ranch mountain bike that is provided during their stay. This allows guests to spot wildlife and reduce vehicular traffic while on property.

Our extensive variety of daily on-property activities is available from 9 am to 5 pm. With 10 square miles to discover, we encourage all guests to do two included activities per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Your Ranch Ambassador will curate a custom itinerary by pre-booking your preferred activities through the Rod & Gun Club. Although we do not charge cancellation fees, we are not able to reschedule activities at short notice due to sanitization requirements on gear and equipment. We will provide sanitized gear for activities, but ask that our guests pack their own fabric and high-touch items, like clothing, hats, hiking boots and sunglasses.

There are hundreds of options, with talented bartenders waiting by the saddled barstools to take your order. Step outside onto the Flagstone to enjoy the fire and roast s’mores.
