Bar W Guest Ranch

Tucked between two pine-clad ridges at the base of Spencer Mountain, the Bar W Guest Ranch offers full immersion in western living. Not only can guests take beginner cowpoke classes and horsemanship clinics, they can try advanced lessons in team penning and cattle sorting, and participate in a rodeo. Facilities include indoor and outdoor riding arenas, and there are hundreds of acres of open prairies to explore on horseback. For a unique getaway, sign up for the four-day cattle drive on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Down-home cooking satisfies hearty appetites, and accommodations include lodge rooms, cabin suites and luxury glamping tents. Less than four miles from Whitefish, the ranch offers big pike fishing, archery, cross-country skiing, ice fishing and plenty of wildlife viewing — keep an eye out for mule deer, moose, mountain lion and bear.

For a unique experience, stay in one of the glamping tents at Bar W Guest Ranch
