dude ranch Girlfriend getawaysRetreat to the beautiful Bar W Guest Ranch on Spencer Lake in Northwest Montana for a 6 night / 5 day get-a-way. The Bar W is offering an all inclusive package for women to “Cowgirl Up” with their best friends, sisters, daughters, or just come alone and enjoy the camaraderie as the "girls" take over the ranch. This special package combines nature’s simplicity with western informality and provides you with a true Montana retreat to refuel your spirit and delight your body.

The "Cowgirl Up" is an all-inclusive woman's adventure retreat in keeping with the simple yet elegant Bar W style. Before exploring close to a million acres of trails, your get-a-way starts with a "Saddle Up" horsemanship clinic in the arena where you’ll choose your horse and find your seat. Each and everyday you can ride to your hearts delight with one of our expert wranglers - or not - perhaps you just want to kick back relax and let Montana surround you.

In addition to the trails, prairies and mountainous terrain, novice and experienced riders will also enjoy working cattle and learning the fine skill of individual and team sorting and penning in the arena. For the more experienced rider, there is also an opportunity to try their hand at barrel racing and roping. And, just when you think life doesn’t get any better, you'll kick off your shoes for a honey and hot cream rock foot massage followed by a couple hours of real pampering.

At the end of the day, wind down and enjoy the Vintners presentation and cocktail receptions followed by a down home Montana style dinner that will absolutely delight your palate. Then head down to the Blue Moon for some “two stepping” or out to the hot tub for more relaxation under the stars – it’s up to you!

Time will run a little slower, things will seem a little easier, and every day will feel like Saturday - You will feel reborn!
