Triple Creek Ranch

By: Happy traveler


Reviewed on: 08 Jul 2019

I booked four cabins for an extended family get together. Given that our three adult children and spouses are scattered across the county Montana seemed to be a convenient gathering point. I anticipated the best from Triple Creek based on extensive research. The staff and facilities exceeded my expectations. Everything and everyone was simply outstanding for our adventure. The daily horseback riding, the Salmon river whitewater experience and daily ranch activities all contributed to a once in a lifetime bonding experience for the eight of us. I would be remiss if I failed to compliment the dining staff. Each of the meals, including the take away lunches, were excellent in preparation and presentation. A special treat was the third floor bar where we met each night for a drink before a late dinner. No dress code and no reservation necessary. Perfect for our group. Well done Triple Creek!
