Guest Ranch Vacation Packages –
Summer, Spring & Fall

The Bar W Guest Ranch is a great place to spend time together, enjoy the outdoors, and have fun! Located in the beautiful Flathead Valley on Spencer Lake in Whitefish, Montana, the Bar W is just 40 minutes from Glacier National Park.

The Bar W is a family ranch with activities for guests of all ages. As a small Montana ranch, with about 35 guests per week, we make it a point to customize everyone’s vacation, tailoring riding and activities to each guest’s abilities.  Guests have the opportunity to participate in trail rides, rodeo games, cattle work, hiking, swimming, canoeing, fishing, skeet shooting, archery, our kids program, and more.

 

“Great place for a family to be together”

The staff and the owners extend themselves to supply every need and cater to every whim. Activities for everyone. Opportunities to try things you’ve never done before and have a lot of fun doing them.

While there are plenty of things to do at the Bar W, horses are the center of attention. Each guest is carefully paired with a ranch horse for the week. Our trail rides range from one hour to all day rides to the Canadian border. You’ll find a variety of terrain at the Bar W from open meadows on the all day ride to mountainous trails surrounding the Ranch.

Your day is not over when the horses are fed and put up for the night. The Bar W offers a variety of evening activities including a wagon ride dinner overlooking Spencer Lake, an evening campfire and square dancing lessons. After a long day in the saddle, soothe your sore muscles in our hot tub or relax on the deck overlooking the horse pasture.

There is no shortage of great views from the Bar W overlooking acres of pasture, surrounding forest, Montana wildlife, and beautiful Spencer Lake. You will be immersed in breathtaking, unspoiled Montana nature, and enjoy down home hospitality. Here at the Bar W, time will run a little slower, things seem easier, and every day feels like Saturday.
