The Bar W Guest Ranch is the ideal place for your next Montana getaway. Our spacious and comfortable lodge features 6,200 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a full kitchen, three living areas, and a game room. The 140 acre ranch is situated in a gorgeous natural setting on Spencer Lake and surrounded by 3,000 acres of state forest.
Just 4 miles outside the ranch gate lies the town of Whitefish – by all accounts one of the coolest small towns anywhere! Whitefish is a festive community on the doorstep of Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, plus it is home to the finest selection of restaurants, cafés, and local watering holes in Montana. Easy to get to, the Amtrak train station is a 2-block walk from downtown and Glacier International Airport is a short 15 minute drive.
The Bar W is open all year and it’s your choice of how you want to stay. During the months of April through October couples, families, and groups take advantage of our complete dude ranch vacation packages including lodging, all meals and activities. From November to March our lodge is available as a fully equipped vacation rental, with a full set of à la carte activities, and what’s more, the Bar W staff will give you the inside scoop on the what to do and where, plus help arrange all the details.
In terms of activities, the list of choices goes on and on… horseback riding, hiking, biking, golfing, boating, fishing, white-water rafting, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sleigh rides, dancing, spa, and photography. All year long there are “can’t miss” events to look forward to; like the Whitefish Winter Carnival, the World Skijoring championships, the Vance Brash Rodeo Series at the Blue Moon Saloon, wine and beer festivals, live music, the farmer’s market, and more.
Whether you’re planning a family reunion over the Holidays, a wedding, corporate retreat, the big ski trip, or the ultimate summer vacation… the Bar W Guest Ranch is the west at its best.
