About Us

The Ranch at Rock Creek is a luxury guest ranch that brings together upscale amenities and wide open spaces like never before. Set among 10 square miles of rugged Montana ranchland just outside Philipsburg, guests experience limitless outdoor recreational opportunities, outstanding accommodations and cuisine, and a full-service spa.Families, couples and friends will discover that The Ranch at Rock Creek is a place that offers the feel of the ‘true West’ without sacrificing true comfort.The Ranch at Rock Creek is located in the heart of Western Montana, just a short drive from international airports in Missoula and Butte, near the historic mining town of Philipsburg, Montana.
The Granite Lodge sits on a small ridge just west of Rock Creek and is the primary home base during a visit to The Ranch. The great room and the dining room are located here, as well as the Silver Dollar Saloon with the four-lane bowling alley, pool table and 14-foot HD television screen. Also located in a wing of The Lodge, The Mercantile is stocked with beautiful gifts and supplies, while the five-room Spa offers an array of professional treatments.
There are nine rooms in The Granite Lodge, each finding design inspiration in iconic Western themes, such as the great old railroad hotels during the turn of the century, and the classic guns that helped win the West.Accommodations at The Ranch at Rock Creek are varied; in addition to the nine rooms in the stunning main lodge, The Ranch also features 3 Historic Barn Rooms, 7 Private Log Cabin Homes, and 10 Canvas Cabins (for a "glamping" experience).
Our cuisine at The Ranch reflects its pure surroundings — prime organic beef, elk, bison, free-range chicken, organic eggs, fresh fish, seasonal local fruits, vegetables and fresh herbs, all enhanced by an inspired wine list. Chef Josh Drage is a superb chef who hails from right here in Montana. His skills and attention to detail are reflected in menu items such as Montana elk ribeye with Flathead cherry demi-glace, watermelon and fennel salad, and white chocolate macadamia nut brownies.Meals are served in The Granite Lodge, with some flexibility to accommodate guests’ individual schedules and preferences. This way, if you';d rather be out fishing the evening rise than rushing back for dinner, you won';t miss out on The Ranch';s remarkable culinary experience.
Rejuvenation and relaxation are a part of the total experience here at The Ranch at Rock Creek, with professional massage therapy treatments available in our dedicated five-room spa inside the stone-and-timber Granite Lodge.Swedish deep tissue massage, warm mountain rock treatments, high-tech or all-natural facials, and our signature ';Rock Creek Ritual'; are always welcome after a vigorous day outdoors. Hair and nail styling is also available.

Everything is included here, and the recreational opportunities are almost limitless. Horseback riding on trails that weave among our 6000+ acres, fly fishing our stretch of Blue Ribbon Rock Creek, fishing our stocked trout ponds, hiking, wildlife watching, mountain biking, sporting clays, archery, and games in The Granite Lodge are all popular pursuits.The Ranch';s onsite concierge staff will ensure that you can experience it all, so just let them know your interests and preferences and they will take care of the rest.
Our surrounding communities are an important part of why The Ranch at Rock Creek is so special. Our guests enjoy visiting the nearby town of Philipsburg, with its sloping main street, charming shops, and intriguing architecture. The region boasts dozens of other appealing sites, including ghost towns, gem mining, live theatre, shops, rodeos, parades, festivals, historical sites, battlefields, museums, and more. If one chooses to explore beyond the boundaries of The Ranch, we can also arrange off-site guided trips, and golf at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Old Works Golf Course which is just a short drive from The Ranch.

Best of the Best

Surrounded by 6,600 acres of ranchland, The Ranch at Rock Creek offers an all-inclusive “true west” experience complete with breathtaking scenery and activities as limitless as the Montana sky. Take advantage of long summer days to fly-fish, ride horseback or hike. Winter activities include snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Accommodations comprise nine Western-themed guestrooms in The Granite Lodge, multi-bedroom log homes and luxurious canvas cabins on Rock Creek. Prime organic beef, elk, bison and fresh fish grace the table in the evening, along with vegetables and herbs grown in gardens on-site.

Hotel Tip

The Rock Creek Ritual in the full-service spa is heavenly — it features a sea-salt exfoliation, a massage and a hydrating wrap made of organic flowers and honey.

The Ranch at Rock Creek calls itself a 5 star ranch, but I don't know who gave them that rating. There is nothing about them that is 5 star, except their prices. We thought the chef was great and a few of the guides were very good. The management team was a disaster. They made mistake after mistake and really never attempted to rectify any of it. I suggest you have your ranch experience elsewhere.

Without a doubt The Ranch is at the top of our list for a fantastic, fun destination. Our family of 12 (3 generations) were given first class treatment from the minute that we were met at the airport until we were returned. We could ask for anything and they accommodated. The accommodations were beautiful and the activities were well thought out for all ages. The food was delicious.
