A guest room at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Darby, Montana

Located on 6,600 acres of untamed Montana wilderness, this (almost) all-inclusive luxury property offers a haute ranch experience. We love it for its full-service Granite Spa, not to mention its countless activities, including exceptional fly fishing, clay target shooting, hiking, biking, ghost town tours and the Little Grizzlies kids club. Of course, trail rides are on offer — there's no better way to explore the property's wildflower meadows and grassy ridgelines. For accommodation, guests can choose from luxury suites, individual log cabins and glamping tents. Ranch dining features regional ingredients, from organic produce and fresh fish to Montana-raised beef and bison burgers. The Silver Dollar Saloon entices at the end of each day with cocktails for parents and a game room, bowling and movies for the kids.
