family, friends, Fun & adventure
a Montana Dude Ranch vacation
like no other

The Bar W Guest Ranch is a year-round dude ranch near Glacier National Park, ready to treat you to true Montana hospitality from the moment you arrive until long after the sun sets. Nestled between two pine-covered ridges in an idyllic setting at the base of Spencer Mountain, the Bar W Guest Ranch is located just a stone’s throw from the town of Whitefish, Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort.

The Bar W is a small ranch that can host up to 40 guests per week. Guests have the option of arranging 3-night or 6-night package stays, arriving and departing Sunday-Wednesday, Wednesday-Saturday, or Sunday-Saturday. Horseback riding is core to a week at the Bar W and with our proximity to public land, we are able to ride on close to a million acres. Other ranch and area activities are boundless as we provide our guests a full western themed vacation complete with skeet shooting, archery, fly fishing, roping, cattle drives, rodeo games, wagon rides, square dancing, cookouts and campfires. Or you can always just sit back and relax and let Montana surround you with its big skies, amazing wildlife and simple serenity.

We also are easy to get to, conveniently located just north of Kalispell and Glacier Park International Airport, which is serviced by several major airlines, including Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and United Airlines.

All of this and more is what you can expect from a ranch vacation at the Bar W Guest Ranch, where people arrive here as guests and leave as family.
