Guest Ranch with a twist: Bar W Ranch
Bar W Ranch – a guest ranch with a twist
Consider a guest ranch vacation at Bar W.
Montana’s Bar W Ranch is a guest ranch vacation offering something a little different. Just seven minutes from Whitefish, guests can be taken into town for non-riding activities such as a spa, whitewater rafting or simply a bit of shopping. Whitefish is not your typical small Montana town - it offers fine shopping opportunities, excellent dining experiences, brew pubs and fine furniture shops.
Bar W has a small private lake at the Ranch for you to fish in or take a rowing boat out on. In terms of riding activities, Bar W offers forested trails, rides in the outdoor or indoor arenas, team penning once a week or the chance to join in with the authentic cattle gathers and branding on the Indian Reservation.
Lodging is comfortable at Bar W and there’s a quaint, intimate dining area with an open kitchen in the main lodge, so you can view chefs preparing the meals. This beautiful lodge is tucked up against the mountains, yet it’s easy to get to.
Ideal for those looking to simply chill out, Bar W offers relaxing rides through pretty forested scenery as well as riding lessons to your requests. It’s a great ranch to just relax and hang out, and is perfect for families with children who want an introduction into horses and riding. Bar W offers a safe riding program with quality instruction.
